Just enough to be dangerous…

So I now have my nice, shiny BSAE diploma. Run! Flee! The graduation ceremony went as expected though the guest speaker's speech that never got to the point was extremely boring. There were amusing moments like the class singing the Alma Mater (most didn't even know the words) and the professor taking the Recessional (done to Radetzcky's (sp?) March) a little too seriously and leaving everyone behind. Heh. It was a good time though. I think the faculty, staff, and guests were surprised we refused to toss our caps into the air at the end. That was one tradition we...

Battlestar Galactica 3.11 “The Eye of Jupiter” Basic Plot: On the Algae Planet, a temple is discovered that may hold the key to finding Earth and is somehow tied to the Cylons.  Viewing Commentary: Enzo is space by some mysterious individual.

Neither I guess, since they both seem torn about what’s going on, particularly Lee not wanting to cheat on Dee and...

The Great Salty Dragon Debate!

Okay, not really. Just reading too many BSG posts. Salty. Dragon. As long as we know who everyone means it's all good. Though considering how long they've had him floating around the triad tables he'd have some sort of official callsign by now. **** *sarcasm Had a fun time fixing the laptop from a fun little trojan. /*sarcasm Lesson learned: Never let your friends (even a long time, well trusted friends) borrow your laptop. **** I went to the AE Department Chair's meeting with the graduating AEs. I was kind of surprised only 5 of us showed up, but then...

BSG Cast Watch

Almost forgot that I caught a little of a TV movie called Santa Baby (horrible title) that has Kandyse McClure and Tobias Mehler (Zak Adama) in it while visiting friends last night. Kandyse McClure was a bit amusing as the plucky sidekick/assistant and "Zak" was at least wearing clothes this time, though having a bit too much fun with the elves. ;-)  (I kid, of course.) The movie itself isn't all that great in my opinion, but that might just being the time spent studying for today's finals vamping on potential glee.

Wahooo!

Finals are done for me! *cartwheels* There was an odd moment with the class whiner "forgetting" to bring his calculator to the final, so I let him borrow my spare calculator which he attempted to abscond. Grr. Long story short, got the calc back and gave him a tongue lashing. So now there's just the graduation practice and swearing in for the Order of the Engineer on Friday and then the actual ceremony on Saturday and I'll have my shiny new Bachelor's degree. :-)

At least Sharon found a path through, even though likelihood of getting the fleet through without...

9 Days and snickering

9 days until graduation. And a note to all: don't sit behind a guest panel when groups are presenting aircraft designs that looks suspiciously like Cylon Raiders. (I'm not kidding when I say it looked like one of the students sketched a Raider.) Fortunately I knew all the panel members (who seemed to get why I was snickering). So I'm basically free until Astrophysics final on Monday and the graduation ceremony.
