RBOC: Random Friday Funky Edition

Much of this week has felt steadily less coherent to me, and so it seems fitting that the post for a Friday afternoon would emphasize that theme. As above, so below or some such.
  • Job stuff continues. I've managed to get a little time before I have to make my final decision from Job 1. No news from Job 2 about whether I'm in or not, though I remain hopeful.
  • Near-mutiny in one of my classes where the upper classmen are insisting that being asked to read and to write on each reading is unreasonable. Earlier this week, I ended the discussion with the phrase "Honestly, stop whining. You guys are ridiculous." The following class saw 2/3 of the group skip.
  • Came across this and thought it was interesting idea. I've actually considered a similar project, and so I'm going to follow this with some interest to see how it goes and whether people will really contribute some little bit to help out like this. My donation is in the mail.
  • Today is my father's birthday. Some part of me had hoped to have the job search done and good news to give him as part of his birthday present.
  • Interestingly, the position we're hiring for has received very few applicants despite the rough economy and its ties to a very popular field. My chair is panicking.
  • For musical goodness this week check this out.
Back to general office stalling.

Oh, I do have thoughts!

I was worried after the first new episode, but I've found the last two very tense and interesting except for Roslin, who seems a little overwrought to me. There was actually a moment where I expected her hair to blow back (a la "Firestarter") and for lightning to crash behind her head as she exhibited god-like powers.

But, no, really, she was just yelling at someone.

What do you think?

I figured you would. I too was worried at first and I wasn't sure about the direction when the mutiny was first developing. However I throughly enjoyed last night's episode and was not expecting the execution of the quorum...harsh but excellent. Yes Roslin is a bit over the top they needed to get her back into the game.

I am happy that we will be getting back to the actual cylon plot next week.
