    (I also have additional bowls in the same pattern, in green and clear, and in two different sizes. Yes, I realize I may have a problem.)
    I have several clear glass dessert bowls in this pattern, and some other amber colored ones somewhere, of different sizes... might have a green one or two, not sure. All inherited from my grandparents.

    Btw, check out nerdfit
    I didn't like River when I first saw her in Series 4, but having seen her backstory now, I have a much greater appreciation for her character (and much love for Alex Kingston, who needed a strong role after years of playing the much-put-upon Dr. Elizabeth Corday).

    Amy Pond annoyed me at first, then I liked her by the end of Series 5 (though I think Rory is the better of the pair). But Series 6 where's-my-baby-oh-who-cares back and forth put me off. Now that has far less to do with Karen Gillan and far more to do with Moffat's writing, which varies from brilliant to awful at times. Not saying RTD always hit a home run, but his writing appealed to me more. And the Tenth Doctor will always be my Doctor - nothing on Matt Smith, but Tennant was probably the best Doctor since Tom Baker.

    And I second the recommendation for NerdFitness, which is actually how I ended up at MDA.

    Frustrating at times. Again, Rory is a much better conceived character, IMHO.

    I think for Fright Night the paunch was on purpose, to convey that Peter Vincent had kinda let himself go - all booze and bad food and not taking care of himself. Still, Tennant spent a significant amount of time on screen shirtless, of which I wholeheartedly approve.

    It is criminal that Knights of Badassdom has not been released yet. Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn, Danny Pudi and Summer Glau in the same movie??? How can that NOT be awesome!

    Um yeah... so my nerd cred: I owned a Commodore 64 when I was nine (and I still have it); I met my husband on IRC; he and I used to play Dark Age of Camelot before we got too busy with our kids; fandoms include Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, LOTR, Firefly, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, so many others...

    I'm trying to decide if I want to play D3. I've never played the first 2 games, so that's kinda putting me off. And the 45 price tag is definitely off putting. Damn my OH who works for Activision and therefore gets himself a free copy.

    Hopefully at some point I will get my hands on an Raspberry Pi (FAQs | Raspberry Pi) and actually get my butt in gear to learn some progamming skillz

    I couldn't find a release date. You would think, though, that Peter Dinklage's role as arguably the MOST popular character on GoT, and Summer Glau's status as ass-kicking sci-fi hottie would get some studio somewhere to back this and release it.
