Hi Everyone--
I took a mess of pics at the karaoke portion of Jeremy & Laura's wedding celebration this past weekend (in Philly). Here's a link to the set on flickr:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/62619686@N00/sets/72157619034041485/

Unfortunately I took almost no pictures at the wedding on Saturday! I don't know why. I kind of forgot my camera was there, I think. Fortunately lots of other people took pictures, so there are plenty of them out there.

Anyway, enjoy!
I'm so happy with how my running routine is going that I'm starting to feel optimistic enough to set some longer (than 10 weeks) goals again. I'm into week 8 of the training plan I've been following, with no pain, no injuries, no feelings of running with cement globs hanging off my legs, etc. I feel great. Touch wood, please! After this week, only 2 weeks more before I have to move on to something else. I am leery of running sans plan, so I did some googling and found this 19-week plan for building mileage, preparatory to beginning a marathon training plan. (So it's a plan to train for a training plan, basically--so meta!) It looks really good--perfect, actually. Slow and steady, yet still challenging, with tangible goals: just what I need. I think I'm going to finish the plan I'm doing now (duh), then spend 2 weeks repeating week 10 just to make sure my body is really-really-really OK with it, and then move on to the aforelinked mileage building plan. We'll see how that goes. If it goes poorly, I'll just keep plugging away at whatever mileage I can do without hurting myself. If it goes well, I will move on to a bona fide marathon training plan at the end of that 19-20 weeks. And if that goes well, I think I will run the Capitol City Marathon next May. It looks like a really cool course, and has the added benefits of being relatively small and close to home, but still with good water and energy support on the course. (I like that they use Gu rather than PowerGel or any energy bar.)

Hmmmmmm. We'll see. I have other goals for the coming year that may interfere--this would definitely just be the frosting on the cake I'm trying to bake.

I'm not normally very much into running races--I don't much like the whole race mentality, and haven't run very many races since I ran track in high school. However, there is something about the marathon that is an enduring draw for me. I've only run one before--the Vermont City Marathon, Y2K edition (same year my divorce was final and I finished my M.A.), which I finished (officially) in 3:58:23. Ooooh, and check it out: my results are still available online! (Enter my name into the search engine: Sharon Crowley.) [It would be kinda fun to travel there to run it again next year...but I think I would prefer to stay closer to home. I do miss Vermont, though...and would love to do that race again.] I love the challenge of running that far, that long. I didn't do it--and I won't do it now--for the "race" aspect, but rather for the challenge and the accomplishment, the incredible feeling (at least partly biochemical, I know--hello, endorphin high!) of keeping my body going for that long, and exhausting it so thoroughly, using up every ounce of reserve energy. It's best to do that kind of endurance running with good support, in my experience. And frankly, it's fun to have a festival atmosphere in which to do it, too.

But mostly, I'm finding tremendous joy in setting a long-term goal. I have felt so...adrift, over the last couple of years. Lost. Stuck. Blocked. Anxious. Those feelings are easing now, and I feel like I'm re-learning how to drive my own life, run in my own body (rather than a "wishful" body), speak and write in my own voice. How to be happy. How to enjoy where and who I am while also, occasionally, looking toward good things in the future. I know it's a weird historical moment to be experiencing optimism; nevertheless, I am, and I'm grateful for it.

RWPKR

I'm moving this feature to Saturday mornings, so it corresponds to the end of my running week. I think of Saturday as the last day of the week anyway--I guess this is residue from my Catholic upbringing. So here goes...

READING: This week I've been reading short fiction: "Birth Days" by Geoff Ryman, which was recommended to me by one of my committee members. It took me about a month and a half to procure a copy--I had to do an inter-library loan request for The Year's Best Science Fiction, volume 21, which is apparently very hard to come by. I searched new and used bookstores around town, and managed to find volumes 18, 19, 20, 22, and so on, but no volume 21. So I put in the ILL request, and it took them a month to fill it--the copy that finally arrived was from a public library somewhere. I had the book in my possession for a grand total of a half hour--just long enough for me to photocopy the story and put the book into the returns drop box. Sheesh! At least the story was worth it. In addition to that, I've also been making my way through Brain Stableford's Designer Genes (a short story collection), which is perhaps a little too "rah-rah" about biotechnology for my taste, but the stories are nicely weird, well-written and interesting.

WEARING: At the moment I'm still in my running clothes. Oh wait, I changed the W to...
WATCHING: Chris and I continue to make progress through our various Star Trek watch-a-thons. We finished season 3 of TNG, and just watched the movies VI (The Undiscovered Country, one of my favorites) and VII (Generations); plus I watched V (The Final Frontier) by myself, because Chris hatezes it. I think that's about it for the W's.

PLANNING: A rollicking good weekend! Today I'm going to finish up my laundry, which at this point merely entails folding the clean laundry and putting all the sheets back on my bed (I washed the mattress pad and pillow slip covers in addition to the "regular" sheets). Tonight at midnight I'm going to see the Nazi Zombies SIFF movie at the Egyptian, with a couple of knitting friends. Before then I'm going out for drinks with Chris and a couple of other friends. Tomorrow it's brunch followed by an afternoon at Folk Life. Monday...I don't know yet what I'm doing during the day; in the evening I'll be at Purlygirls. Next week/weekend Chris and I are flying (separately--he's leaving Tuesday, I'm leaving Thursday morning) to Philadelphia for a wedding. We both get back on Monday 6/1.

KNITTING: I'm almost done with "Viridis," a.k.a. "The Big Green Box (Stitch)," the sweater I'm making for Chris. I'm hoping to finish that this weekend--I have joined the sleeves and started the yoke. I don't know what I'm going to knit next. I definitely want to cast on for something before I leave, or at least have something ready to start so that I can do some knitting on the plane.

RUNNING: I finished up Week 7 of the Runner's World "First Steps" program today--this morning, in fact. This week's formula for each run was 3[9(r) + 1(w)]. Next week, which starts tomorrow, it'll be 2[13(r) + 2(w)]. Where: r = running, w = walking, and the units = minutes. Heee! It's fun to build mathematical expressions! I'm looking forward to next week because fewer repeats and longer intervals spent running equals less time checking my watch. Today's run was really good. I enjoyed it right from the beginning. I figured out another way that running helps me spiritually, too: I find it easier to do that visualization thing--you know, "see yourself accomplishing your goals!"--when I'm actually in the act of accomplishing one. I also re-affirmed my preference for running in the morning. These two things are related: it's good to start the day with an accomplishment, especially one that makes me feel strong and capable of committing to the small steps required to reach a big goal. It is, perhaps, a little sad that I still need to be reminded of this, at my age (where is that wisdom and self-knowledge, that "my own" I'm supposed to "come into" as I get older?), but I guess it's good that reminding myself still works.

Odd Impulse?

May. 17th, 2009 02:19 pm
arguchik: (Default)
Am I a weirdo, or would you have this impulse too?

I'm reading an essay by a fairly well-known scholar, about the Bodyworlds exhibit(s). In the essay, the scholar, as is very standard scholarly practice, refers to the work of another scholar who is considered an expert on this subject. "Other scholar" is Jose Van Dijck, Professor of Media and Culture at the University of Amsterdam. Now...seeing the name, what would you assume about "other scholar"'s gender? "Author scholar" assumed that Van Dijck is male, but in fact she is female. Here is a link to her faculty bio/profile, picture included.

I get that "Jose" is a male name in Spanish-speaking contexts, but it seems like one of the responsibilities of scholarship is to look into the matter before making assumptions and embedding those assumptions in a published essay. For that matter, I'm surprised that none of the peer reviewers caught and corrected the error. So I have a very strong impulse, right now, to send "Author scholar" a friendly, fact-correcting email.

Would you feel this impulse? Would you follow through on it?

FWIW, I probably won't follow through on it, because the issue has virtually no bearing on the content or import of this article; and I have no way of knowing that the error was made by Author scholar anyway. I feel like I would just come across as...that person. KWIM? LOL.
Interval 1 (9 mins running): Kind of a slog, especially the first 5-6 minutes. I felt old and mildly decrepit.

Interval 2 (2 mins walking): Phew! Stretched my arms and upper back. Yawned a lot. Legs started to feel a little bit springier.

Interval 3 (9 mins running): Nice, even, and smooth, like I could keep going at this pace all damn day if I wanted to. I felt like a "real runner" again, for the first time in a couple of years. I run an out-and-back course, and usually turn around about midway through this interval; today I had to go an extra block beyond my usual turnaround point (which means I got to that point about a minute faster than usual).

Interval 4 (2 mins walking): Legs felt a little twitchy, like..."Why are we walking, again? Who's idea was this? Can I speak with the manager, please?"

Interval 5 (9 mins running): Pure play! Legs wanted to sprint and frolic. When I got to the end of this interval, it was hard to convince myself to walk the rest of the way home.

That concludes week 6 of the plan. Next week, I'll be doing 9 minute running intervals broken up by 1 minute walking intervals. I really, really like this plan. It allows me to focus on the running rather than my watch. I do best when I don't have gadgets intruding on my consciousness too often. But also, by emphasizing time spent running rather than distance covered, it seems to short-circuit my tendency to push myself "just a little bit further" than I ought to go.

I'm amazed at the difference it is making, in my body and my mind. I am starting to feel more gregarious again, less inhibited or anxious about socializing with people. Better still, I am feeling genuinely interested in, and excited by, my academic work again.

Now I'm off to shower, and then to Essential Bakery Cafe to meet Sarah for our Destination: Yarn jaunt.

Finish-itis

May. 12th, 2009 07:29 pm
arguchik: (running)
I've had finish-itis this week. I finished 2 pieces of knitting--a cardigan and a lace shawl--and bought blocking supplies from Home Despot on Saturday so I could wash and block them. I bought buttons on Sunday and sewed them on the cardigan yesterday (Monday) morning. I am almost done grading the student papers I received on Friday (w00t!).

Then today I had to seriously talk myself out of skipping straight to week 7 of the training plan I'm doing. At first it seemed reasonable, because the running intervals are the same length (9 minutes each), and it's only the walking intervals that are different (2 minutes for week 6; 1 minute for week 7). No. It's not reasonable. It's the way to hurt myself. I didn't do it. I just really want to get through this part of the "get my running legs back" program, and go straight to the part where I have my running legs back. No. There are no shortcuts. The only reasonable path is to take it one step at a time, while also paying attention to my body and taking care of it, treating it with kindness and patience rather than trying to force it into something it's not ready for.

But oh. The way my lungs feel. This is bringing a feeling of depth, peace, and openness to my chest that I have missed. I can breathe again, and I didn't even realize I'd been having trouble with that. And my legs. I can feel the blood flowing through them again. They are starting to feel stronger and more resilient, more playful and activity-inclined.

It's good.

I'm sitting at the Fremont Coffee Company right now, ostensibly grading the last few papers I need to finish before tomorrow. I'm sitting next to a lovely photograph of rain droplets on spruce branches.

Today I started week 6 of the Runner's World First Steps program that I posted about a few days ago (I was in week 5 of the C-2-5k plan, so I just switched to week 5 of the RW-FS plan). This is a milestone for me because when I have tried to run the C-2-5k plan several different times in the past, I always seem to lose interest or get injured (because I try to run too fast, too early in the program) at around week 4 or 5. My running peters out, I take an unplanned month off, and then I have to start right back at square 1 when I get up the gumption to start again. It's fairly discouraging. This time...I'm making it through, and more importantly I know I will make it through, to the end of the plan and beyond. I can't explain how or why I know it, I just do. It feels good and right and true. I'm enjoying it so much; the gentle re-introduction plan seems to have enabled me to bypass the worst of the aches and pains that usually make the start of any exercise regimen so...well, achy and painful. I haven't felt anything that I would describe as "pain," only the good, mild ache of well-earned fatigue. A nice thing: I am slipping happily and naturally into a 4 day/week regimen, which I feel will be easy to transform over the summer into my ultimate goal of a 5 day/week regimen. Another nice thing: how my legs feel. I can feel them changing, getting stronger and more resilient, with each passing week. Actually, that's true of my whole body. It is soaking this up and asking for more. Oh, and...my clothes (especially my pants) are just barely starting to fit a little better, too. This is good because they were really getting too tight, and I can't afford to replace them.

That's about it for now. Back to work.

Water mercurial beading up on a duck's feathers, then slipping away.

That's what I want stress to do.

Visualize......

Nothing matters but the step I'm taking right now.
Today, thanks to a friend who posted this on her blog, I learned about Runner's World's "First Steps" program. II like it much better than the CoolRunning Couch-to-5k plan because it's a lot more streamlined, and it has you do a workout 4 times per week instead of 3, which is also better IMO; or at least it has always worked out better for me, to run 4 or 5 days per week. Also, it has you running longer intervals sooner, more consistently. The CR plan throws in one longer interval per week, starting at week 5, but I feel like that's a bit too soon because the plan hasn't really trained your body to withstand that yet. The RW plan takes more time to get there, but I feel like it will build a better foundation first. Running far and well is all about having a good base.

So this week I'm going to switch, and I'll also add a day of running (probably on Saturday).

Today's run was wonderful, BTW. It felt smooth and even. Best of all, I could actually feel it doing its "thing" on my psyche, building my patience and reminding me how to let anxiety roll off. This is a hard thing for me, and running certainly isn't a panacea, but it is the best thing I've tried.

Fast Sharon

Apr. 19th, 2009 11:06 pm
arguchik: (mongoose)
I had a wonderful run today. I kept it low and slow almost the whole time. I'm still alternating running and walking for a few more weeks yet; but I'm covering about 3.2 miles overall. Anyway, for the last half mile or so I couldn't resist pushing my pace a bit. My legs felt springy and desirous of speed. I couldn't very well deny them altogether, now, could I? It felt good...I was a little worried that "Fast Sharon" might not be in there anymore, that she might have let herself out while I was busy getting too old for this shit. But no, she's still there. She'll just require a more finessed coaxing than she used to, I think.

Mind you, she's not all that fast, objectively speaking. She...I...(whatever) do alright, but I'd never hold a candle to, say, Joan Benoit Samuelson or anything, so I should be clear that I don't mean to imply any such thing. No...by "Fast Sharon," I just mean...the fast version of me, the one who can get a bit of lead out when she's so inclined. The one who likes to be able to, every now and then.

Running

Apr. 14th, 2009 07:56 pm
arguchik: (running)
On my run today, I think I figured out why I've had problems with a couple of different kinds of tendinitis in my life (primarily since my mid-30's): it is incredibly difficult for me to make myself run as slowly as I ought. I love running so much, I just want to open it up and go.

After a few weeks of fits and starts, I've been following this Couch-to-5K plan pretty well. Sort of. I'm following the principle of it, i.e. to start out running and walking in equal, alternating, short intervals of 1-2 minutes, and then to gradually increase the time spent running. Train 3 days per week, etc. Anyway, it's a good plan. The best thing about it is that it has gentleness built right in. But still, during my running intervals I have to constantly remind myself to slow down, and to stop running and start walking at the end of the interval. I don't want to. I want to run fast and long. But my leg muscles and bones and assorted connective tissues aren't ready for that yet.

What I really want is to be in the kind of shape I was in a few years ago. Correcting for the fact that I'm older, of course. This desire is dangerous and ultimately self-destructive, or at least counterproductive, because it leads me to push myself too hard, too far, too fast, and that's how I get injured.

What I have to convince myself to want is simply to be in better shape than I am now, and not to worry about where I was a few years ago, or where I'll be in a year or a few years from now. My therapist likes the phrase "Live in the moment." I like that phrase, too.

Run in the moment.

I guess the plan is helping me with that. I enjoy the workouts tremendously, in and of themselves. It's easier, what with all the flowering trees and shrubs and regular flowers I get to see along my route. I've been trying to make a game out of using my running watch--see how close to the exact minute marks I can get without going over, try to predict where I'll be when the clock tells me to switch from running to walking or back again, etc. This is weird for me, because I generally don't like using any kind of gadget when I run (this includes my i-Pod), but it's easier to keep track of time than distance with this plan because it changes every week, and eventually the intervals get all mixed up and crazy, so...watch it is. The rest of the time I like to think about things, plan things, figure things out. Reassure myself. Breathe my way out of anxiety.

Oh, and my hair is now long enough for pigtails. It has been for awhile, but they actually look cute now. So...I'm a runner and a 42 year old wearer of pigtails. :-)

In other news, yesterday I finally used my 5 song credits that the i-Tunes people gave me for some weird glitch that happened when I migrated my music to my new computer. I've had them (both the computer and the credits) for a couple of years. I bought 5 different recordings of "All Along the Watchtower." Unfortunately not including Bear McCreary's, which doesn't seem to be available on i-Tunes. I got one by Jimi, one by Dylan, one by U2, one by the Indigo Girls, and one by XTC. I was surprised at how many different people have covered this song, some of them multiple times. I'm curious to compare them.

I haven't been here in awhile. I'm not really here now. Just putting in a little filler to maybe get myself used to the idea of writing something here again.

My life is still my life. I am still me.

Heading out for a run now. Oh yeah! I'm still doing that. Still knitting, too. Still teaching and grading and writing.

Can anyone out there explain why Yahoo mail keeps crashing Firefox on me today? I'm using a MacBook with the newest version of OS-X, fully updated and current (ditto Firefox), etc. As soon as I open the mail window--and only on Yahoo--I get the spinning rainbow ball, and it takes *forever* to load my inbox. Then I click on a message...again, spinning rainbow ball and a long wait. When I try to reply to a message, that's when all hell breaks loose and the program (Firefox) just stops responding. Oh, and yes...I tried switching back to Yahoo's "classic" mail and the same thing happened.

Is this just a temporary problem with Yahoo's mail servers--something everyone out there is probably experiencing--as [livejournal.com profile] glaucon has surmised? Or is it potentially a problem with malware or some other crap like that having been loaded into my computer surreptitiously? I know Macs are widely considered to be mostly immune to such malevolent viral forces, but I figure it's only a matter of time, and now is as good of a time as any, ya know? I'm suspicious because this is happening on the heels a very noticeable uptick in Russian spam to my yahoo inbox, which started about a month ago. I get *tons* of it, and Yahoo's spam filter, which generally works really well, seems almost helpless against it.

Anyway. Any insights would be much appreciated.
I think I need to arrange a retreat for myself--to take some much needed "time away" from the distractions of my life. What I would really like is to find a low-tech cabin or inn somewhere, and to go there without any of my technological distractions--no phone, no computer (the temptation of searching out wi-fi would be too great), no i-Pod. Just me, my books, perhaps a knitting project, pens, and notebooks, plus a draft of my current dissertation chapter in hard copy.

If I were to do this, the place would need to be quiet, secluded, and cheap, preferably cheap enough for me to stay there for 4-5 nights. I can't afford a lot, but I think I can afford something, particularly if it's bus- or train-able from home. Oh, and it would need to be available during my spring break, which starts March 23rd (or when I get my grades done, which could be earlier). Classes start up again on March 30th. So that's my time frame.

Suggestions? I'm all ears. I need me some serenity, man.

Auf Russisch

Mar. 4th, 2009 04:40 pm

So...I've been getting a lot of Russian spam in my Yahoo inbox lately. My Gmail spam still seems to consist mainly of ads for cheap Viagra and other meds, Hottt XXX 16 year old virgins, and Rolex watches, of all things. But on Yahoo...it's all in Russian. Real Russian, Cyrillic alphabet and all. I keep marking the messages as spam, but they keep showing up in my inbox all the same. Today I got two identical messages from the same sender--oddly, the spam filter grabbed the first one and whammied that bad boy straight to my spam folder; but the second went to my regular inbox. I have two questions about all this:

1. What's behind this crazy Russian spam uptick? Maybe it's because This guy is right?

2. Is it possible to set my spam filter to capture any/all messages written in alphabets that I cannot read?

Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope!
1. I am currently sporting a pimple smack in the middle of my forehead. I am 42 years old. Does this strike you as an odd thing, or is it just me? When I was 15 I would have been mortified by this pimple, but now I am merely bemused. I take this to mean that I'm a stronger person than I was at 15. Or perhaps that I don't take myself quite so seriously anymore.

2. I went to see Antony and the Johnsons (edited to remove the apostrophe I should know better than to include) last night at the Moore, with my boyfriend and several other friends. I appreciate a concert in a venue where I can sit down. I enjoyed the show overall--the music was delightfully complex and well played by very talented musicians, but the lyrics of some of the songs kinda got on my nerves. I think my favorite part was when they covered a Bob Dylan song.

3. My recently acquired, dentist-crafted mouth guard is starting to have a positive effect on my jaw and on the quality of my sleep. Interestingly, it is also alleviating tension and bone-crackiness in my neck.

4. I went out for dinner both Friday and Saturday night this past weekend, and both times I concluded the meal with a double espresso. Friday night's espresso was better. It was also the first coffee-containing beverage I have consumed since November. However, it is 9am and I don't want coffee, I want a nice cup of tea.

5. I think I'm going to re-read Volatile Bodies as soon as I finish re-reading Gender Trouble. Somewhere in there I need to read a bunch of other feminist writings on the body, too. I'm having a somewhat schizoid response to the task: I'm interested in it, but I'm having trouble motivating myself to actually do it. This worries me.

READING: Still working on The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen. I'm 25-33% in and I love it so far. Very well written, and particularly interesting in terms of character development.

WATCHING: Chris got a new Doctor Who DVD from Netflix last night, so we watched the first episode of that (I still need to watch the last 10 minutes or so, because I pooped out and had to go to bed).

PLANNING: I have two cool things going on this weekend. Tomorrow I'm going to the Seattle Aquarium with a friend and her partner, to see the octopus exhibit. Then on Sunday I'm going over to Churchmouse Yarn & Tea on Bainbridge, with some knitterly friends. Churchmouse is going to have a reception to kick off their showcase of customer renditions of Elizabeth Zimmerman's Fair Isle Yoke sweater. I recently completed my own rendition of this pattern, so I'm going to wear that (of course). I'm really looking forward to seeing a bunch of different color combinations.

KNITTING: I'm currently working on a dark green sweater for Chris. I'm about 6" into the body section. I'm knitting it using Elizabeth Zimmerman's seamless, bottom-up percentage system, and I'm planning to do the saddle shoulder yoke. This is my 3rd NaKniSweMoDo sweater (#1 was the Arwen cardigan I posted about last time--4 weeks ago!?--and #2 was the aforementioned Fair Isle Yoke cardigan).

RUNNING: I continue to make my way s-l-o-w-l-y through the Couch-to-5k plan from CoolRunning. It's going OK. I struggle with motivation a LOT, unfortunately, but I'm keeping at it. I just have to get past my motivational "tipping point," which roughly coincides with that point at which my body gets physically addicted to the exercise and it becomes harder to talk myself out of running (i.e. overtraining) than it is to talk myself into running. I'm looking forward to that day. Running is the best anti-depressant I've ever found (the prescription ones do me no good), and I really need that right now.
READING: Still working on The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen. It is beautifully written. A pleasure to read so far. It's long, though, so I'll be working through it for awhile.

WATCHING: BSG!!!!! TONIGHT!!!!! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maeveh and [livejournal.com profile] pigbark for hosting us tonight. I think this will be the first time I've ever watched an episode of the new BSG as it airs (i.e. not on hulu.com or scifi.com).

PLANNING: See above. Also, [livejournal.com profile] glaucon and I are going to Portland this weekend, partly to see [livejournal.com profile] evernanon and her spouse, and partly to see [livejournal.com profile] alice_at_night, who will be up from San Francisco. I haven't seen her for over 2 years, so I'm looking forward to it!

KNITTING: I finally broke through the cuff barrier on my Cardigan for Arwen. (Sorry, too lazy for links today.) I finished both cuffs yesterday morning, and now I have the first sleeve done and the second sleeve about halfway done. By "done" I mean to the armpit. The body is already done to the armpit, and is just waiting to be joined with the sleeves in raglan-shouldered bliss.

And here comes the new R. Wait for it....

RUNNING: Yes, I am running again. Ever since I developed tendinitis last fall, I've been super discouraged and unable to motivate myself to try, try again. This week--the result of a secret New Year's resolution--I have finally begun to break through that motivational barrier. The first hurdle--getting my feet into the shoes and my ass out the door--was high, but it's not the highest one I'll face. That'll come in 3-4 weeks, when I hit the very predictable "first plateau." Anyway, I am treating myself like a full-on "couch potato" and following the exceedingly gentle Couch to 5K Plan from Cool Running. (OK, so I set aside my laziness to bring you a link--I just have to point that out; it goes with the theme of the new R.) My hope is that the plan will be challenging enough to get me back into shape and keep me interested, but gentle enough to forestall the tendinitis. I'm working on week 1 of the plan this week--I'll finish it tomorrow. Every Friday, I'll report my progress here.
Tags:
So who out there has the Sci-Fi channel and plans to watch the new BSG episode tomorrow night? Would you welcome a guest or 2? Normally I'm fine with waiting until it shows up on scifi.com, but I am DYING to see this first 4.5 ep!
