I should've known better, I really should, but I was up RPing until 2am last night...

Grainne got back from Gulf War (the SCA event, not the RL clusterfuck) at 3-ish, and woke me to help her bring her stuff in from the car.

Tailstalker woke up at 7:30. Grainne's still asleep.

I think when she wakes up, I'm gonna see if I can go back to bed for a bit...

*blinks, hearing the sound of something hitting the floor*


Excuse me, I need to go rescue Grainne's toiletries from an inquisitive cub.

Found this via fenrisfox...

Your result for the Which Starship Captain Are You? test...

You are the Emissary of the Prophets, Benjamin Lafayette Sisko!

46% Benjamin_Sisko, 19% Kathryn_Janeway, 7% Jean-Luc_Picard, 6% Johnathan_Archer, 14% William_Adama and 22% James_T_Kirk!

As far as this test is concerned, you got the best result. This man was my favorite captain, and by far. There is no one else out there capable of as much. The man was a great father, a noble religious icon (and one worth his salt, which is rare in that field of expertise), an expert battlefield commander, the most respected human figure in Klingon culture, and a damned good captain. Oh, and he was a god. That's pretty significant by itself. It helps that he was also one of the best actors for the job. His character arc was easily the best in the entire smorgasboard of different Star Trek spinoffs for many reasons.

at HelloQuizzy

Ahh... my favorite captain. Admittedly, the wording of the answers on the quiz made it blatantly obvious, and was more than a little biased toward Ben, too.
