Battlestar Babes

Maxim - Battlestar Babes 01Battlestar Galactica stars Tricia Helfer and Grace Park will be appearing in the November issue of Maxim… and oh my frakk are they hot!

The eye candy is provided just in time too, coinciding with the release of the made for television movie Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, which serves as a prequel-ish take from the Cylon’s point of view and promises to be uber sexy *stops breathing and stares blankly into space, drooling*.

The intense asthmatic gasping you may be hearing, is that of the multitude of geekasms currently ebbing and flowing around this news. Not only do we get to see the two hottest Cylons in scantily clad outfits (thank you Maxim), but, courtesy of Sy-Fy, we also get to watch both Six and Boomer for another two whole hours… *pauses to process the news… then rushes off to change soiled underwear*.

Yes, life certainly is good!



Until the next time “Milieunairs”!

“Pikachu… use FLASH”!

(As seen on Kotaku, via MaximumPC)Gloves?! Pikachu doesn't wear gloves!

“Wild Pikachu appeared!
Go Metapod!
Metapod used Harden!
Enemy Pikachu used Flash!
Metapod used String Shot!”

As a self-confessed Pokémon fan, I could not resist sharing the above photograph with all of you.

I may not be into costume role-playing (cosplay) but if Miss Pikachu is anything to go by, or her friends for that matter, I may very well have to re-evaluate my stance on the subject… *loses focus and drools slightly onto the keyboard*



For those who do not know; Cosplay, short for "costume role-play", is a type of performance art whereby participants outfit themselves with an elaborate costume of some kind, which is often adorned with theme specific accessories, that represents a specific character, idea or theme.

Cosplay participants ("cosplayers") form a subculture centered around wearing their costumes and re-enacting scenes or inventing likely behaviour inspired by their chosen sources. In some circles, the term cosplay has been broadened to include simply wearing a costume, without special consideration given to enacting characters in a performance context.

(Wikipedia, 2009)

So you see, having nerdish tendencies is not all bad. Admittedly a little strange, but not as bad as the stereotype would have you believe.

Until the next time “Milieunairs”!

Music Monday: ‘Reach Out’

Hey Milieunairs,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

Rationale: There is no doubt that I am a fan of the popular genre of music more commonly known as pop. I can openly admit that I thoroughly enjoy music from, for example, the likes of Madonna  and Britney Spears. Subsequently, I have enjoyed almost all of Hilary Duff’s work.

Reach Out, in my opinion, is a great song. Probably more so for me because I cannot actually ‘reach out’ properly with my right arm. Believe me, the irony of choosing this song, in light of my current situation, is not lost. In fact, it actually reminds me that I have something to work towards. After all, my answer to Miss Duff’s question is yes. Yes, I would very much like to show you ways to workout those vocal cords ‘reach out and touch you’.

What some people may not know is that the song was produced by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and is built around a sample of Depeche Mode’s 1989 song “Personal Jesus”. Furthermore, Reach Out was Hilary’s third number one on the US ‘Hot Dance Club Play’ billboard and was specifically produced for the Best of Hilary Duff album, which is also the final record in Hilary’s contract with Hollywood Records.


As always, whenever I post about Vivaciously Varietal Vibes on Music Monday’s, simply click on the name of the song to be taken to a web page that displays the songs lyrics.

Until the next time “Milieunairs”!

Our Reunion holiday… coming soon!

This is just a quick note to say that i will be posting an entry soon regarding my current trip to Reunion. Oh yeah, that is correct. I am not home at the moment. I am, once again, holidaying abroad.

Today we are going to Tante Monique’s house, so I will not have proper access to the internet or a computer. Hence the reason for this post.

Once I have completed the other posts, I will post then as soon as possible.

The entries will include, among other things: colour changing excrement, bitchy waitresses, clumsiness, shopping for useless stuff and sweating like a Leb in the Sahara desert (as I type this I can feel a bead of sweat slowly itch its way down my back with another caressing my left nipple).

Until the next time Milieu Pals!

(P.S.: I am using Windows 7 beta and for whatever reason, I cannot ‘justify’ the text… It is really annoying me, like wearing and then realising you are missing a button from your favourite shirt, so I apologise for the uneven layout)
