#1100: Er, make that "7.5 hours".

Because I looked at my watch wrong. The power came back on at 3:25, not 4:25.

...I know this because when I set the time on my alarm clock, when I woke up this morning, I set it wrong. At 8 AM I looked at the alarm clock and noticed that it said it was nine AM.

Well, that's how it goes when you try to do complex tasks after just waking up. Especially after getting only broken sleep for the past 24 hours.

By the way, did anyone else notice the cheap-ass punk trick the producers of Battlestar Galactica perpetrated on us?

Preview: #3 (Deanna, played by Xena Lucy Lawless) tells President Laura Roslyn, "You don't know you're [one of the "final five" Cylons]?"

In the ep, she says the above line, pauses, and then pulls a "wouldn't it be funny if I said that?" kind of thing. What BS.

The last of the "final five" is either Baltar or Starbuck. Right now I'm leaning towards "Starbuck" only because she popped up out of nowhere in a brand-stinking-new Viper (well, a brand-stinking-new old Viper) and that screams "resurrection" to me.

But since it's TV SF, God alone knows what kind of BS they're going to pull out of unlikely orofices. "Starbuck is actually one of the Gods of Cobol!" "Starbuck's actually a thirteenth Cylon type!" "Starbuck just has really, really phenominal luck!" "There was this transporter accident, see, and...."

Anyway, I still haven't abandoned my notion that Baltar is the last unidentified Cylon, but Starbuck's mysterious "reappearance from certain death with amnesia about the intervening time" would suggest that she's not entirely human. Whether that means she's Cylon, "Lord of Cobol", or some kind of avatar, remains to be seen.

Again, though, this being TV SF, there is nothing actually precluding both Starbuck and Baltar from being Cylons. "All this time we thought there were only five more...but there are six!" It would even fit with the whole "baker's dozen" theme: "there are twelve colonies, but there's a thirteenth lost colony called "Earth"...." Yeah.

The more I think about that one, the more sense it makes.
