So say we all

Want to know what I did tonight? No? Too bad.

Battlestar Galactica party. At David Weddle's neighborhood clubhouse.

I refer you to Maggie.

I am an awesome driver, I admit. It's because I hit everything from school to my house when I was a teenager so I used up my accident quota early.

I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to David/Reid. So dude, drop me a line. I'll invite you guys to my housewarming party where we'll discuss the finer points of Ron Moore's coffee drinking habits.

I told Katee Sackhoff she made me cry and she said, "I was supposed to."

But she's so adorable and beautiful that I didn't feel stupid. Until right now.

I also told David Weddle I could really relate to Starbuck's childhood and demanding parents and that that's the part that made me cry and he said, "I think everybody does."

I don't think that's true. Some people have noodle salad.

I make it sound like I was hopping around the party schmoozing and pointing out obvious emotional reactions to crew members who had other crap on their minds, but really I was hiding against the wall, accidentally turning lights on and off. I thought my cleavage would get me some conversation, but you know what? Cleavage isn't as effective as you'd think. Apparently I'm going to have to use my brain and my winning conversational skills to meet people. Who'd have thought?

I made shiny new cards with a gradient and Albert font and my new address. I gave out approximately zero. Good thing I'm going back next week so I can spend another night thinking of ways to not say anything to anybody.

    I've been trying to come up with a cleavage-related comment, but I think I'm gonna have to take a pass. Either way, it sounds like you had a terrific time.

  2. I love it that we actually studied and prepared and still didn't know what to say to some amazing people when we had the chance. That is AWESOME.

    Must learn to dance faster faster faster. Must acquire better brain.

  3. I know. Can you believe I used to be a professional news reporter? I was terrible.

    I think everybody thinks that other people have noodle salad. But I'm pretty sure that there are some people who really do have noodle salad.

    I'm guessing that this is an As Good As It Gets reference.

  5. The “card handing out thing” is a weird one, I agree. Sometimes, it’s really easy to do, and it all seems to flow. Others, not so much.

    You probably need to take along a conspicuous tall doofus like me that everyone can spot and easily avoid, thereby giving you the stealth cover necessary to start conversations about “that guy over there”.

    “And hey, here’s my card”...

    (Besides, the last time I was anywhere near Katee Sackhoff, I spent ages chatting to her fascinating mum, who was ace. So I’m no use.)

  6. Watching the show all I could say was "no, no, no, no, no."

    Musta been really special to watch with them.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
