...happen to be the same thing today.

It's a very nasty day today. It's supposed to clear up as the day progresses, though, and be pretty nice by tomorrow.

My weekend was pretty quiet. I puttered around upgrading some hardware bits in my Windows machine, read a good bit, and was generally a hermit.

I've got a lot to do at work today; the law school finally turned in their grades for the fall semester (they always do it late), so I have to process their grades today. Of course, it's fine for them to take this long to get them in, but it's an absolute necessity that I drop everything I'm doing to process them.

I'm a little concerned with this past Friday's episode of Battlestar Galactica. I had been wondering for some time how they were going to resolve the issue of President Roslin's impending death. While I didn't think they would let one of the stars of the show simply die, and I certainly didn't want to see her leave, I also didn't want a hokey miracle cure. As for how they handled it... I'm not sure it reaches the level of "hokey miracle cure," but I'm left a little cold by it as well. I don't think it reached the level of shark-jumping, but it's as close as this series has come to it thus far.

I was a bit taken a back by the episode too...

she saw clearly that Baltar was kissing Six in the courtyard on Caprica...but said nothing about him being a collaborator once she was cured.

Yet. :-)

I agree. I think the way to salvage the "miracle cure" is for Roslin to have some fallout from it.

That's kinda been my thought about it too. Plus, she'll be starting to remember having seen Baltar & Six together. I'm also not sure about how to take the revelation that Roslin was having an affair with President Adar.
