We are comforted by the prospect of Gaius Baltar being eaten by a diatryma.
We went to the Alpha workshop together and met _starlady_, davekirtley, ksumnersmith, diatryma, and tmseay, where I screwed up a perfectly good chance to do my one and only Wash impression.
Keeping me company - Here's where I shout out to diatryma - whose name is Catherine, but who goes by Cassie ... and I kept introducing her as Cathy, Katie, Carrie, Candy, and God knows what else.
I'm diatryma on Livejournal, too.1 While I really like hearing about sewing and dresses, it fills me with anxiety to contemplate what might have to be done to actually take part.
