BSG question

Okay. This may have been answered in the miniseries (which I, unfortunately, have not seen). Why do Kara and Tigh dislike each other so much? Is it just a general thing--Kara's resentful of authority (not a good thing in the military) and Tigh hates showoffs--or is it something more specific?

(And I still need a Kara icon! I may have to cough up the money in order to buy more icon space.)

ETA: WTF? One of The Grandchildren just asked what I was watching. I told him I was watching BSG, and he said he "hates that show" because "it's so corny".

The hell? Battlestar Galactica is anything but corny! I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Back from the appointment

I have never been so relieved to be able to pee in my life. Gyah. (How's that for TMI? I'm sure I could do worse.) I thought it was bad enough pacing the hallway with a full bladder. Then the lady had to start pushing on it. (Yes, I know this is how an ultrasound is performed. That doesn't mean I have to like it.)

Thank you to the people who answered my question in my last post. I thought that was it, but I wasn't entirely sure. (Also, I really wanna see Tigh and Kara fight. How can I get my grubby paws on the miniseries?)

I'm making a Starbuck vid. It'll take a while to gather the clips, but I think it'll turn out okay.

Oh, I also had blood taken for the blood tests my doctor wanted. Unfortunately, I ate beforehand, so the cholesterol test won't come out too well. (Particularly since what I ate was a grilled cheese sandwich.)

****

There was something else I wanted to ask--oh! That's right. I should have money left over from my scholarships and student loans this semester (thank you, DCYF guy, for finally coming through with that), so I want to buy a laptop. (The money can be spent on anything toward my education. A laptop will help quite a bit.) So, any suggestions toward what to look for would be great.
