Cylons in Alaska?!July 19, 2007
An advance scouting party on our northern frontier?
An old threat newly risen out of the Arctic ice?
Nah, just cruising by.
On my recent cruise to Alaska, I managed to totally embarrass my entire family by insisting on carrying my two Cylon Mini Mates with me. At particularly inopportune moments I would pull one of them out of my pocket and insist on photographing them. On this day, I thought the beautiful Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau would be a perfect backdrop. I held up the Cylon while my husband dutifully photographed the scene and my teenage cousin tried to hide behind the nearest bush.
But then, it happened. A guy walked by and said, “Cool, a Cylon at Mendenhall!” He smiled and continued forward to photograph the glacier. I have no idea who he was or where he was from, but he made my day.
Battlestar Galactica fans are everywhere! You never know when or where you are going to meet one but carrying a Cylon with you does increase your chances.
And that is totally cool!
Oh yeah, and the glacier was pretty amazing too…
