My first pass at thoughts on last night's BSG are here and the still stand in the morning light but, as per usual, I have more to say.

The more I have to say )

Mo Ryan's post, and interview with writers, is here.

Alan Sepinwall's post is here.

Time Magazine: Best Actress: Kate Winslet's Moment

I didn't realize that Winslet is only 33. Reading media and watching her, I assumed she was at least 5 years older. Perhaps it's the unadorned, exposed roles she picks and her willingness to look and act like a fully formed woman.

GQ: Justin's cover interview

Few things in entertainment media make me happier than persistent credibility for Justin.

In a totally different vein, Smithsonian Magazine has some great features on Darwin. I rarely read biological sciences so I don't know all that much about Darwin but these articles motivate me to pick up some reading on natural selection.

The plumber was scheduled to arrive today between 9:30am and 11:30am. At 11:50, when he still hadn't arrived, I called the office but could only leave a message. I finally heard back at 5:50pm. He tried to make excuses but calling demonstrated he had my number and all I required was a call, by 11:30am, to say he was stuck at another job. I expect that my time is respected and calling me more than 6 hours after he was supposed to show doesn't cut it. He came by around 6:30pm and all is well but I'm damn glad I didn't have plans this evening.

In the meantime, I read some great fic. My favorite on the list is an SPN fic: The Consequences of Falling by pandarus; Dean/Castiel, NC-17. Castiel finds himself in an untenable position and consequentially loses his grace. Finding himself as a human, he roadtrips with a demon, discovers the delights of tequila, french fries and pie, plays a starring role in a virgin sacrifice, is deflowered by his favourite Winchester, and then gets some very unpleasant news indeed. 15 parts.
