This is the modern centurion rather than the old-school one that’s been going around recently. This one doesn’t have lights, either, of course.

Galactica Cupcakes!

This year, Sarah and I decided to throw my birthday party at our house. We weren’t sure if anybody else was going to bring cake, and there were around 25 people coming, so that meant several cakes.

Naturally, the first thing that popped into my head was “colonial fleet”.

Thanks to my lovely wife Sarah for helping me bake and decorate these all day!

I love Doc Cottle

I love Doc Cottle. He’s like Switzerland, but with balls. He never chooses sides but seems all the stronger for it. I’m just saying.

…from Bringing Up Baby, Entertainment Weekly’s take on last night’s episode.

BSG’s Cally gets her own drink… the Callymotxo!

I often end up playing bartender when we all get together to watch BSG. This past weekend’s frak party was no exception, and in honor of the season 3 premiere I came up with what we decided to call the Callymotxo.

BTW, this drink is inspired by the Kalimotxo, pronounced /ˈkæliˈmotʃo/, which is a wonderfully refreshing Basque mixed drink made by mixing cheap red wine with Coca-Cola. Brilliant!

So here’s how to make one:

  1. Two parts tequila
  2. One part triple-sec
  3. One or two parts cranberry juice
  4. Fill with Coca-Cola

N.B.: substituting Diet Coke (or even Caffeine-Free Diet Coke) is perfectly A-OK.

It was a smash hit with our crew (though you’ll have to take their words for it as I can’t stand tequila myself).

Share and Enjoy! So say we all!
