Playing with blogger, plus sci-fi addictions


Decided to try uploading an image here...

[Need to at some point mock up a Snoopy with Darth Vader's helmet over his head... maybe with his nose sticking out, or with the Vader mask having a REALLY LONG muzzle. :) ]

Am kindof rambling because there's something funny I'm dying to post, but I have read Dooce.com, and I really don't want to screw with my job.

So you're getting this.

Oh, there is something cool I can talk about: my Sci-Fi addictions. :)

So, if you haven't gotten into Sci-Fi's new version of Battlestar Galactica, you really are missing out. It's totally well done, and has been keeping me on the edge of my seat ever since I saw the pilot. I own the pilot, and the minute Season One is out on DVD, it's getting ordered.

Tonight I saw the season finale. About drove me batty... total cliffhanger. Aigh! Must find out when the new season starts... I need my fix, man!

Another addiction I have WAS to Simon of Space, a cool novel blog. I say WAS because, sadly, the final chapter was posted. :( It's over. I'm feeling relieved in a way: if I woke up in the middle of the night to let the dogs out, and I realized a new post was up, I'd have to stay up and read it! But I'm also sad because it was quite a ride, and I'm already missing it.

I ordered the dead-tree version of the blog-book.

If you want to read an awesome BLOG novel, or purchase it in dead-tree format, go to Simon of Space and look for the link on the right to "read it in sequence". There's also a link on the right for purchasing the dead-tree version.

It's not sci-fi, but am also addicted to Monk. It's really well done. I have to wonder if I would be so into it if it weren't for the fact that I have OCD... and if my husband would be so into it if he didn't have to deal with my OCD! :) No, I think we'd still enjoy the show... it's just really funny and well done. :)

It's on the USA network. You can catch it on Monday and Friday evenings.

Ok, enough rambling.

Blast, I really am dying to post what happened at work. It's not related to work...

Dooce and Opinionistas just have way bigger cajones than I do. :P
