  1. autostraddle, how do you do it? how did you know I would be so depressed after reading that politics article that the only thing to cheer me up would be 39 pictures of my TV girlfriend?

    you guys are awesome (get out of my head)

  2. Frakking AWESOME. Riese, I’m sorry everyone yelled at you but I’m also conflictingly overjoyed that you went ahead and made this post in just a few hours, just for us. This is one of many reasons why I love Autostraddle.

    (And it’s 39 reasons why I love Starbuck!)

  3. AHHHHHH!!!! I THOUGHT YOU READ MY MIND, RIESE?! Cuz did I forget to tell you, Kara Thrace and I are engaged? Our marriage is going to be epic and my life is going to get made into a reality TV show called either “Pyramid Wives” or “Battlestar Wives.” I am also going to have alllll her babies. As part of our pre-nup she is NEVER ALLOWED TO WEAR WEDGE HEELS or else it is OVER.

    But I like even better that this post is crowdsourced.
