If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want--good or bad. When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or moritified) about what people remember about you.

And, just to make things a tad more interesting, you may ask me a single question if you like. Make it on any topic, and I will answer truthfully. ^_^

Your love of Adama is soveryverypure. I admire that. :D
3rd-Nov-2005 01:30 am (UTC)
Pure? We talking about the same karihan?

3rd-Nov-2005 01:32 am (UTC)
Pure in strength, if not in thought and deed. :D
3rd-Nov-2005 09:02 pm (UTC)
pure (pyoor) adj.: a) free from anything that taints, impairs, infects or adulturates. b) utter, absolute, sheer.

Yeah, those work. ;^)

I know I'm overusing the arm!p0rn icon. I cannot help myself!

I love it when you guys talk about me as if I'm not here. X-D

Carry on!

Hmm, I haven't known you all that long, so I think I'll go with the question instead. How long have you been watching BSG? Since the mini, first season, recently?
3rd-Nov-2005 08:48 pm (UTC)
Oh, I've been watching since the mini. I saw TOS as a kid, just the right age to appreciate it for the fun it was. I was kinda bemused at the thought that they were redoing BSG and was about to write it off as yet another dumb, fluffy nostalgia remake. Then I saw those Three Little Words.

Yeah. Edward James Olmos. ;^)

As the stunned amazement started to recede, my first thought was, "Well, whatever it's going to be, it will not be fluffy!" My second thought was, "I am SO all over that!"

And then I saw the mini, and, set like a jewel in the platinum setting of all the other stupendous characters and writing, I saw the relationship of William Adama and Laura Roslin. My first coherent thought after the "start having babies" confrontation was, "FINALLY, he's paired with an actress who can give as good as she gets!!!"

The rest is, if not history, at least a helluva lot of fic. X-D

I was a huge Stargate fan when the promos for the mini began airing on Sci-Fi. I remember being insanely curious and wanted to watch, but the only tv that has cable in my house is the one in the living room, and dad wanted to watch something else. I sort of forgot about it as the months passed. Then people on my flist from across the pond began making a ruckuss about BSG again. Apparently it had been made into a regular series and people were raving about it. The curiosity got the better of me, and this time I was able to *cough* procure the entire first season before I moved for school. I sat through all 13 eps almost back to back, instantly hooked.

EJO and Mary McDonnell certainly anchor the series, and the younger actors are just as fine performers coming into their own. I didn't really start developing favorite characters until the last few months. Laura Roslin stealthily crept into my heart and I completely adore her character now, after spending several months being unsure of her. Starbuck is definitely the second favorite, mostly because it's so easy for me to relate to her as a woman in aviation. I only wish I could fly half as well as she does and have an ounce of her courage.

A memory of you and me? That evening we chatted without chatting and I got a lot of writing done. Even though we weren't saying much, it felt so good to have you on the other end of that chat window.

Must be that muse vibe... :)
3rd-Nov-2005 08:51 pm (UTC)
Oh, it works both ways, believe me! It feels very comfortable to have my husband sitting next to me and a good friend on chat ... of course he's usually chatting with someone too. ^_^

I really need to make a "Slave to SuperMuse" icon. LOL

Oh, yes, that was a hoot! I knew you lived in Goleta, but I had no idea you were going to SBCC. But then I heard "Cell" and "Larry" in the same sentence, and just had to check. ^_^
3rd-Nov-2005 02:12 am (UTC)
My OMG recollection of you and me, and I hope this doesn't bother you, is of commander_adama and me
He suddenly smiles and quirks an eyebrow.
And it is an impertinent question on first acquaintance. But that's all right.
And then there's theway present memeory of being ut of bed way to late (it's past 3 AM now) closing my eyes and almost dozing of behind the internet PC, but fighting back to a level were I can reply (like now)
3rd-Nov-2005 08:56 pm (UTC)
*chuckle* Bill will be responding to your latest comment before too much longer, I promise! He's a tad ... um ... preoccupied in Gods' Gift part 6 right now.

But very happily so ... ;^)
3rd-Nov-2005 09:03 pm (UTC)
S-okay. I'm killing Laura now, so I'm glad to have a desert of a satisfied (mellowed out?) Bill to look forward too, as well as GG part 6.

The awesome chats in BSG chatroom! Cause they rock!

Any single question? Okay I'm curious...how did you and your hubby meet?
3rd-Nov-2005 09:35 pm (UTC)
You and Alana are a total hoot. I love chats, even if I'm late in and go quiet sometimes because I'm writing.

Oh gosh ... Brandon and my meeting is a tale. ^_^ He and I used to belong to the same APA (amateur press association). APA's were a pre-WWW phenomenon when X number of people would create articles, fan fiction, art or whatever on a common enthusiasm/fandom and send X number of copies to a moderator, who would collate them into a fanzine, bind them together and redistribute them to the membership. Yes, all in hard copy. *aging before your eyes*

Well, our APA was dedicated to anime fandom. We each wound up attending AnimeCon '91 in San Jose without knowing the other was going to be there. I noticed this tall guy with long brown hair who looked kinda familiar, but we didn't connect until I ran into him at the GOH meet-and-greet and he had his badge pinned to his chest, conveniently at my eye-level.

We spent the rest of the con together. However, I was too clueless to realize he had romantic intentions until he made a trip from Oklahoma to Santa Barbara the next spring to visit me. *^_^*

We've been together ever since.

Dude...so LOVE the chats. My definite highlight of the week!

Lol...I know what fanzines are. Hell I'm one of the only kids my age who still knows what a record is and still owns some.

But that is SO cute and sweet and all things like that!
3rd-Nov-2005 02:50 am (UTC)
I also am a bit of a newcomer. B^) I second the BSG Chats,

and the snarks. LSHIC
3rd-Nov-2005 09:08 pm (UTC)
The chats are loads of fun, as well as being good fic-stimulus. I have gotten at least three good fics out of chat-fodder!

And are you referring to the me-as-me snarks, or the me as admiral_adama snarks? ;)
3rd-Nov-2005 09:18 pm (UTC)
Both! :VBEG:
3rd-Nov-2005 03:34 am (UTC)
You bring the funny and the snark. And the prOn. Do we need much else? *g* Oh, chocolaaaaaaate!
3rd-Nov-2005 09:13 pm (UTC)
So I'm funny, snarky and *hem!* ^_^ High compliments all! I can only offer virtual chocs, but more pr0n is on its way!
3rd-Nov-2005 02:56 pm (UTC) - Memory and a Question
My memory of you would be chatting with Yahoo Messenger. Just one time that we talked and I felt so much closer to you.
Why EJO and Adama? I mean there are a lot of pretty boys out there, but what does he have that they don't.
3rd-Nov-2005 09:25 pm (UTC) - Re: Memory and a Question

Why EJO and Adama, as opposed to Teh Pretty? Well, in character or out, Edward James Olmos has gravitas, a sense of personal power, confidence and strength that your average Hollywood pretty boy does not and never will have. Looks alone will not lift an actor or character to my notice; there has to be intelligence put together with something out of the ordinary. Eddie has always had that something, since his Miami Vice days and before. Put that something together with a well-conceived and well-written character like William Adama, and put Adama together with loads of other excellent characters, and I'm hooked.

Geez, Chris ... verbose much? X-D
4th-Nov-2005 03:49 pm (UTC) - Re: Memory and a Question
Not verbose. Passionate. And I think that's cool.
Course, I love EJO and Adama too.

awesome writer and fellow screen capper
16th-Jan-2006 12:02 am (UTC)
I've loved your stories. They make Adama/Laura so real. It was because of you that I attemped to write them.
25th-May-2006 10:39 pm (UTC)
Remember that time when we went ice skating and that huge guy was following us around? He was hella creepy y0. Of course, you climbing the tree to get away wasn't the smartest thing ever. Next time, when I mention it, don't take me seriously.

I'm sorry you ripped your pants. I didn't mean to laugh that hard. :( I suck as a friend, really. Then again, you got me back by stealing my shoes and running into the jungle with them. Totally uncool, Chris.

I guess we're even.
