I'm biased. I prefer science-fiction versus other kinda of shows. I hate reality TV, so it stands to reason that I prefer the polar opposite of that, which in my mind is sci-fi.
For the last few years, I've had ST:Enterprise to fall back on, but that got cancelled. Then I heard about the new Battlestar Galactica. I remembered the original only oh-so-vaguely, but I knew that it had been something important to the genre. And featuring Lorne Michaels, a tried-and-true Canadian, the show was something special.
Now there's a remake on the airwaves, and I'll be dammed if it isn't just about the best damn show around. For the last two episodes, the premiere of season 2 and it's follow-up, Rose and I were, quite literally, almost breathless and on the edge of our seats.
The characters are so well written that I found myself very much interested in what's going on. And the pace of the show never stops, it's going very fast and very “what’s-around-this-corner?”. I cannot emphasize enough the greatness of this show.
Watch it. NOW!!|W|P|112230606101009680|W|P|Oh. My.

For those of you know me, and have heard me rant on occasion, picture me making my Captain-Picard-is-way-better-than-Captain-Kirk-face while I rant my globules out on this particular subject that is oh-so-close to my heart.
I work in an office building.
I WORK in an OFFICE BUILDING. This office, like many others around it, is 20+ stories high and doesn't have easy access to the controls for air conditioning, heating, etc... So when women come into the office is hippie skirts, flip-flops, and tank top, excuse the fuck out of me, but get some sense!
If you want to dress in "peasant" skirts and tank tops, be prepared to be cold and shut the hell up. If you want to wear flip-flops (ultra unprofessional as they are) that make that annoying little "sklip-sklip" sound every time you take a gorram step, then be prepared to have cold feet and shut the hell up. It pisses me off how women can wear tank tops to work but I can't wear a t-shirt. I don't know about everyone else, but I am told to dress business-casual, I do it. I don't dress like I'm going to be working outside all day, because I WORK in an OFFICE BUILDING. When I wake up, I ask myself, "What am I going to wear to WORK today?" and not, like some of the people I work with, "What am I going to wear TO work today?"
Seriously, there is a total double standard in place, when it comes to dress codes, for women in the Canadian workforce. And if you say anything about it you're regarded as some old fashioned woman hater who is a bigoted misogynist who hates all women everywhere because Mommy didn't hug you enough as a child. I hate certain women for very clearly identifiable reasons and would gladly elucidate on them for any who ask such of me.
Now I have heard the statistics of women vs men in the Canadian workforce, and that women still, on average, make 0.81$ for every 1.00$ made by men, and that's wrong. There is a glass ceiling, but it's starting to crack. 99% of the people I work with I treat with the respect and dignity due any human being. But don't wear a swimsuit to the office and then complain all gorram day about how your arms are goosepimply. To return to my original rant, if you want to dress like you work outside, get a suitable job, but don't get the heat turned up 'cause your bare toes are cold. That's being an ASSHOLE and no one like the OFFICE BUILDING ASSHOLE.|W|P|112189819018724756|W|P|Women turn up heat to beat the freeze|W|P|7/18/2005 12:32:00 PM|W|P|Mike|W|P|Optimus keyboard
