Probably Not of General Interest...

...but lately while doing my treadmill running I've been watching Season One of Battlestar Galactica on DVD and now I have THE BIGGEST girl crush EVER on Starbuck.

Seriously, I love girls that kick ass. Starbuck makes me want to quit washing the damn dishes all the time and worrying about when I'm going to fucking vacuum or whatever and she makes me want to ditch my kid and husband at home and go learn to fly a viper and smoke cigars and wear boots a lot, and I'll be honest, I don't really even know what a viper is, exactly.

In other related news, how come there are so few kick ass girls out there in TV land right now? And please don't tell me that Mariska Hargitay files a mean motion or whatever the hell her character does. Furthermore, I don't share the nation's interest in forensic science, no matter what random city it takes place in, so whatever ass kicking the sassy...uh forensic sciencey ladies of TV may be doing these days is of no interest to me. Anyway, I'm talking about actual physically violent bad girl power ass kicking and I can't think of anyone doing it these days. Anyone? If the situation doesn't improve I'm just going to have to watch Buffy Seasons 1-5 and BSG on an endless loop. And then I might have to start attending comic cons and writing fanfic and reading graphic novels and next thing you know I'll be buying Star Trek uniforms on Ebay and making Mr. E *renew our vows in Klingon.

And we can't have that.

*PS We aren't renewing our vows any time soon, we've only been married for four years. But if we ever do, it totally won't be in Klingon. Duh. It will be how everyone should renew their vows: in Vegas, before God and Elvis. Or Elvis, anyway.

You should definitely check out the new & improved BIONIC WOMAN. I think that might fit your ass-kicking quotient.

I enjoy girl power ass kicking myself. Alias with Jennifer Garner was one of my favorites. If you haven't tried it, I'm pretty sure it's on DVD by now.

Can't think of any kick-ass chicks in TVland, either, but I think there were a few in the last X-Men movie. BTW, did you ever see the Trekkie documentary? It's hilarious!

I hear ya on the Bad Ass Women! Where are they anymore?!

I wanted to get married in Vegas with Elvis, hubby said no. How backwards is that?!

I'm there, sister. That Starbuck is one spicy bit of space... something.
Makes me want to do a whole lot of pushups - and not the girlie kind, which is totally the only kind I can do.

Ever watch Doctor Who on BBC? Although Rose Tyler (season 1) isn't kick ass per se, there's something spunky about her that makes me want to travel through space and refuse to get my teeth fixed.

Ha! We've only been married just shy of two years now and already I'm tyring to think of cool places for us to renew our vows one day. Vegas would definitely be fun!
