Would a younger Penelope Garcia call herself 'Razor Mantis'?

I seem to remember her misstep was an "I wonder if I could..." and not about money, but it's always possible that what she did was exaggerated or reinterpreted after the fact. She was definitely more defensive as a younger woman; it's entirely possible that she would have chosen a handle referring to a predatory animal, and since she still would have wanted to seem unique, an insect is a better choice than something like 'wolf' or 'tiger'. She was probably always a bit femme, but I bet her femininity is more strongly expressed the more confident she is about herself, as a whole person and not just an awesome brain in a shell.

Completely unrelatedly, somehow I keep reading Kris/Adam as Kirk/Adama. I blame a mixture of unfamiliarly with Idol matters and a deep, previously unsuspected desire for unlikely space crossovers. Had (new) Kirk been in BSG instead of Star Trek, he wouldn't have fared nearly so well. Galactica tolerates a lot more self-destruction, and prefers personal epiphanies over kicks to the backside. That said, it'd be pretty awesome to watch.

And now, I will definitely not be thinking about replacing Kirk with Starbuck in the new Star Trek movie.
