It's Also Been a While Since I Did a Post Full of Random Thoughts.

Because apparently I'm too lazy to actually write any coherent posts today, I shall instead simply spew forth whatever has recently been passing through my brain. Thus:

I just caught myself thinking, "Ooh! The new Wal-Mart opens tomorrow. I should go and see it!" I have now officially lived in a small town too long.

I live in constant regret of the fact that my living room carpet is exactly the same color as regurgitated cat chow.

I just finished re-reading The Ship Who Sang, and I cannot for the life of me understand why I thought Anne McCaffrey was a great writer when I was a teenager. Is she still standard reading for teen-girl geeks, I wonder, or has time passed her by?

I've been watching the new Battlestar Galactica. Well, I watched it last week, because a co-worker of mine, who doesn't have cable at the moment, called me up to ask me if I could tape it and then proceeded to recommend it to me with great enthusiasm. The episode was hard to follow with only what he'd given me for background, though, so he lent me the miniseries on tape. And, I dunno, I think the jury's still out. It's kind of slow moving, and it's not exciting me greatly, but it does seem to have a lot of potential, and I love the premise (which it now occurs to me the original pretty much wasted). Someone in the UK (where they're on the season finale already) told me next week's ep is really good, and I see TV Guide's Matt Roush (whose opinions I deeply respect) gave it an 8 out of 10, so I'm pretty sure I'll be tuning in on Friday. We'll see... Well, I suppose it was about time I got some use out of that cable TV subscription I'm paying for every month.
