Lightsaber Bookends Will Reveal Your Inner Geek to Everyone

It’s taken over half a year since you could find ‘em, but these illuminated Lightsaber Bookends are available for pre-order again. You might have noticed – if you have keen eyes – that this lightsaber is none other than Darth Vader’s.

Training & Diet Week 4 Day 6 & 7

Saturday

I had a banana smoothie, two milk teas, as well as a chicken wrap to start the day. It was left over from the day before.

I had a big green salad with three eggs and finished the day with a fake-sushi wrap.

Sunday

I had a banana smoothie. I made myself two breakfast burritos with Dan Bings. Inside, I had a cheese omelette, lettuce, and condiments.

I finished the day with some yellow Thai chicken curry with rice.

I had a weigh-in today and I’m around 82kg. I need to start running again to cut that weight down. I can’t believe that it’s almost been a month and I haven’t purchased anything from a stand, store, or restaurant. That’s pretty impressive, because I used to do this daily.

My wife says that she’s also feeling toned without having done much exercise, if any. I have to agree with that assessment. She’s definitely looking fitter than last month.

Caprica End of Line S01E09 (Syfy)

An ad for Caprica

Before Battlestar Galactica ended it was announced that a new series would being. This series would take place on Caprica, 58 years before the events in Battlestar Galactica, and would show how the Cylons evolved.

For a cybernetic race to evolve so quickly is somewhat surprising, but given technological singularities, I guess that it is possible.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Nurse Jackie Comfort Food S02E01 (Showtime)

Following the framework of previously established dramadies on Showtime, Nurse Jackie aims to show the life of a RN working at a busy hospital who pops pills and leads a double life.

Nurse Jackie has already created some controversy because of its content. The show is for mature audiences and tells a story about a hard working nurse, dedicated to her job, but with a habit.

This show is a lot better than Hawthorne. I wasn’t immediately hooked, but the situations that Jackie gets herself into are amusing. She’s cheating on her devoted husband with her pharmacist, who supplies her with pills. She deals out her own kind of justice in order to make things right in her own eyes.

Nurse Jackie is entertaining and between all of the new medical dramas, Hawthorne, Mercy, etc., it’s definitely the best.

Warning: spoilers ahead.
