And the frack goes on…

First of all, I apologize to all you loyal Squirrel Thoughts readers for my lack of blogging the past week. I’ve been busy/mildly stressed out about other things, which I may or may not write about in the future. (All right, I realize that probably sounds sketchy, but it’s not, I swear. It’s just not something I can post on the Internets right now. OK, that still sounds sketchy, but I promise it’s nothing illegal or anything.  You’ll just have to take my word for it.)

Anyway, let’s get on to the hot topic at hand: my boyfriend’s obsession with “Battlestar Galactica.” I really wish I had better news to report on this, but unfortunately, I don’t. He’s officially an addict. There hasn’t been one evening this week when I’ve come home from work and he wasn’t watching it. (Some of you may quibble over the fact that it’s Tuesday, but that doesn’t make it any less accurate.) Over the weekend, he even forwarded me his e-mail from NetFlix confirming that the next disc would arrive on Monday. And he’s still on the first season.

Mmm… Cylon toast.

Now, in case you still aren’t sure just how geeky BG is, I’m posting the show’s description from the little NetFlix sleeve I found lying next to the DVD player:

“Join Adama (Edward James Olmos) and Laura (Mary McDonnell) as they lead a ragtag fleet of human survivors (from the destroyed colonies of Kobol) in search of a mythical planet called Earth. But beware, the robot race of Cylons is in hot pursuit… and it seems nothing will stop them… Dun dun DUN!” (OK, I added the duns for dramatic effect, but the rest is verbatim.)

Hey, hey, wait a minute, guysh. Thish show ish about a ragtag fleet of human shurvivors from the deshtroyed coloniesh of Kobol? I had no idea! SHWEET!!!

Wait… no. I want nothing to do with that.  But I do, by default. My only hope now is to keep making fun of Zach on my blog and shame him into not watching the show. Unfortunately, Zach is not easily shamed, so I’ll have my work cut out for me. Frak.

    Really, Allison, tell the truth. Have you EVER shamed Zach into doing (or not doing) ANYTHING?

    By the moons of Caprica, this insult won’t go unpunished!
