Left most of my hair at the hairdresser today. It's barely chin-length now, which is shorter than I had it since primary school. Liked it when I left, less so after it got snowed upon (twice), but we'll see how it looks after washing out all they styling & products. In any case I like the fact that it's short. Over the holidays I was tempted to just take the scissors and cut it all off, off, off.


Going through BSG at an utterly embarrassing speed, because what I mostly want to do is go back and rewatch DW and maybe write something about that, although other than with TW I suspect I wouldn't be able to come up with something that hasn't been written before, and better, too, so I'm not so sure this is really such a good idea. But before I do that I need to find out who the last cylon is. *sigh* (I'd rather appreciate the irony if it were Roslin. Right now Kara seems too obvious a choice, and the Adamas seem to be out because they're related; Baltar is of course still a possibility, but if it's him I'm going to cry, and all the other characters seem too minor for the big reveal... ETA: No spoilers, please!) I really got caught up in the story during S3 (although I liked the first half better than the second, and some episodes more than others...), so, un_crayon_rouge, definitely warming up (*g*), but that final click still isn't there, and I'm wondering why. The show has all the things I usually like, mythology, overreaching arcs, moral dilemmas, drama, it's visually beautiful and well made, but I'm not feeling the love as much as I thought I would. Or think I should, given all those factors. Why do some stories resonate, while others don't? Why Torchwood, but not Being Human? Babylon 5, but not Farscape? The brain, she is a strange thing.

You will never be able to guess who the final cylons are because the producers/writers had no plan for the reveal. The choices are utterly random and come out of nowhere.

No plan? That seems a bit strange. I'm already at the beginning of S4, so it's down to the last one, but you're right, I'd never have suspected Sam, Tory or Tigh; Chief Tyrol possibly maybe, because of the nightmares in S1, but in this case I was already spoiled, so it's hard to be sure...

Grah, I'm biting my tongue here not to be spoilery, but I'll refrain. Just be sure to tell me what you thought of it when you finally get there.

Hey, wanting to find out what happens is a very good reason to watch or read a story, there doesn't always have to be deepness and essays and whatnot. Not that the essays are not brilliant, which they are, but... you know what I mean. Or, I hope you do. Just relax and enjoy the pretty :-)

Meh. Cally just died, so 'enjoying' is maybe not the right word at the moment. But the four of them trying to handle their new-found cylon-ness is really interesting to watch...

Oops. Yeah, that's a bad moment. But anyway, I'm glad you're liking the show well enough. Nothing else is required.

After having my hair at mid-back length for twenty years, I cut it all off last January, and now it's 2 inches long max. And it's so freeing! I love it so much, and everyone tells me that it becomes me a lot more than long hair did :)

The one thing I hate about going to the hairdresser is how much lacquer they use on me :/

And it's nice for maybe a couple of hours - that is unless there's a bit of a wind outside. My usual method of, er, 'styling' is blow-drying with my head down... :)

I don't even do that. Get off most of the moisture with the towel, and let it dry on its own. In the mornings, I pass a hand through it, and call it done :P
