I did get a lot done yesterday and I managed to get to bed at 3am. I didn't actually fall asleep until 5am or so, of course, but I'm learning. I did wake up at 1pm, so maybe my body will finally get the idea pretty soon.
Before bed, I drank some shiraz and ate spaghetti while watching the seventh episode of Battlestar Galactica, which was a vast improvement over several that came before. I love watching Gaius with the Cylon lady.
I was rather surprised that the Galactica has such spacious heads--it's like a mall restroom, when I'd have expected something small and cramped. I rather like how space normally seems to be at such a premium that only the commander, the colonel, and the president seem to have anything like rooms of their own, and the president's looks like it's just closed off by a curtain. Meanwhile, this bathroom scene looks like it was lifted from Ally McBeal.
I'm also learning to look away during the opening theme, which for some reason always shows a bunch of spoilers for the episode. And what's with all the incredibly lousy day for night shots?
Nice lens flare. Is that supposed to be from the moon? Someone's got a little too much faith in the blue filter. I never find day for night shots convincing, but shooting on top of a building on a clear day is just sloppy.
I seem to have gotten a particularly nice bottle of Charles Shaw Shiraz. I've been enjoying it over several days, as I purchased at BevMo this handy "VacuVin" that pumps air out of the bottle through a rubber cork. I bet it'll help in keeping mead longer, too, and it'll be especially useful the next time I decide to spend more than two dollars on a bottle of wine.
