For those of you who may mistake my enthusiasm for the Sci Fi and BSG stuff as corporate schilling, let me just take a moment to reassure you all that I'm an enormous Battlestar Galactica fan who just happens to work for the same company that owns Sci Fi. I blogged about the show for a while at my old job and just basically force practical strangers/acquaintances to watch the show at any opportunity that I have.
So how excited am I that not even two weeks after I start at my new gig, I get the chance to go to a press conference where the BSG cast and head honchos will be talking about season 4? Admittedly I would have been more excited if the promised season four premiere DVD had arrived at my desk, or if they had spelled my name right on my name tag...but hey, everyone spells my name wrong (I blame my husband...and his parents for that one) and I'm hopeful that I'll get the DVD before the April 4 premiere so at least I can brag to my friends about it.
The big event was at the Morgan library...a place I've walked by on occasion, but never been into. I like to read, but my books come from Amazon.com, or dusty old used bookstores...I'm confused by this whole library concept. Anyway, I walk in to this museum-like place and get the aforementioned nametag, which despite the whole name misspelling thing is magnetic and doesn't require me to put pinholes in the pretty new dress I'm wearing. Yup, I got all gussied up just for this event. Trying to make a good first impression or what not...though my spouse assumed I was getting dressed up on the off chance I got to meet Apollo... I mean, Lee... I mean Jamie Bamber. But that's not the case at all. I swear.
I'm sitting in the auditorium where the BSG press conference is going to start, I got there early so I had a pretty prime seat. While I'm pondering the miracle that is magnetic name tags (seriously, why didn't someone think of this before...or heck, why didn't I think of it? And could the Eureka peeps have had anything to do with it). When I realize that the library is not only the Morgan Library, but also the J. Pierpont Morgan library, which makes me think of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Megan Mullally singing "J. Pierpont..." to Matthew Broderick, then I suddenly realize to myself that I'm not only a big sci-fi geek, but probably lame for knowing this random fact. Thank the gods I didn't start singing. I seriously need a life.
