"If you've named your kids after character from Battlestar Galactica, you might be a geek..."
True story. When I used to work in a medical clinic, I handled files of all the Rodriguez kids who had names like Apollo, Athena, Starbuck and... Superman. Little Superman Rodriguez would be around 25 now. Episode 13! I can feel the bad luck voodoo already (why do my shoelaces keep getting untied?). Technical difficulties next? We'll see. As I write this we're a few minutes before it all starts. If you couldn't listen or understand my Frenchie French French, I supply the episode's playlist, with You-Tube links where available.
