Battlestar Galactica lists are back this week because Cammy and I got off on our rotation and I decided this is the easiest way to fix it.
This go ’round we ponder what mornings are like on the Battlestar we call Galactica. Who on board is a morning person? (we realize morning is an arbitrary construct when you’re drifting through space, but hypothetically speaking…)
Adama: No. You don’t want to run into him outside his quarters in the morning before he’s had enough coffee.
Roslin: No, but she’s not evil about it. She’s just quiet and speaks in monosyllables
Billy: No, but he tries to fake it. He’s kinda bleary eyed and his hair might be a bit mussed.
Gaius: Strangely, yes.
Six: She’s a pretty even keel all day long.
Doctor: Hell no. He’s wearing a 10am shadow
Dee: Yes. Annoyingly pleasant.
Apollo: He’s quiet also, tries to fake it. He’s more successful at doing so than Billy unless he was drinking with Starbuck the night before.
Starbuck: Another hell no! The only exception is if there’s someone around more hung over than her—in that case she takes great delight in tormenting them (“Good morning, sunshine!”)
Tyrol: Best to avoid him for first couple of hours. Don’t ask him questions. Don’t try to make his coffee, you’ll just make it wrong.
Callie: She’s pretty zombie like, but not cranky.
Helo: Up and at ‘em kind of guy. Would get up and run if there were somewhere to run.
Sharon: She’s functional, but not fun.
Gaeta: Considering he was up till 3am playing PlayStation he’s pretty coherent.
Tigh: No! He reverts to primal grunting.
Ellen: Morning? She doesn’t get up till after 12:00.
Tori: No, she gets up when she has to, but it’s about face time rather than feeling up to it.
Anders: Absolutely! He loves mornings! I’m convinced this was a big part of the failure of his marriage to Kara.
Leoben: Morning person presumes that he sleeps. We’re not sure he does. Time is kind of irrelevant for him.
Zarek: Yes. And he’s smug about it too.
