And we move on. (37 Days Remaining)


New day, new opportunity. I woke up this morning with a skip in my step. I ate my porridge and toast with a grin. I ... well, I got soaked on my way into work. But everything's alright.

Today's a big day. A big day for a lot of people. You see, we've been waiting for a while - ever since her glorious return. Soaring through the heavens, emerging from the nebula, back into our ever lovin' arms.

We've missed you Starbuck.

I've been looking forward to this day ever since you sailed back to us, all along the watchtower.

Of course I've missed Adama and Lee, Helo and Sharon, Chief and Cally... it's been a long, long time - seems like a touch of forever.

But tonight, at 10pm we'll be joining them all once again. Huddled around the video portal, looking into their world. And what better way to celebrate their return than to drink lots and lots of alcohol in their honor?

And it is with that mindset that I share with you my Battlestar-themed party drink recipe list!

Enjoy! (and please, if you drink, leave your Viper in the Hangar Bay)
