Just kidding, I do not think I am that big a geek. But I have my moments.
Anyway, my friends and I recently ordered a bunch of stuff from thinkgeek.com! I was super excited when the package arrived this morning because I have been wanting to get ahold of my…. LIGHTSABER CHOPSTICKS! I have been wanting these forever (well, a while anyway) but it took me a while to find them. I also got a lightsaber laser pointer, because you never know when that may come in handy.
It annoys me how my friend got a watch on the site for like $15 and my chopsticks were $13. But oh well! I will feel like Jedi while I eat dinner every night! Another complaint? Shipping fees to Canada. It always costs so dang much.
Since we are on the topic, HBO released another Game of Thrones teaser! Cannot wait! My friends and I were thinking of doing a themed night for the premier! 🙂 I am currently on the fourth book and I am so slow… One of my new year’s resolutions was to stop feeling so guilty every time I pick up a novel instead of a textbook, and I have been doing pretty well. But it is still very hard to squeeze out time for reading. 😦 It also does not help that A Feast for Crows lack a lot of the characters I am used to from the previous books. But then again we get to see what is going on in Sunspear!
Moving on to a slightly less cheery note….
So the past few weeks has been pretty good work load wise, but I am NOT looking forward to the next two-three weeks. I am swamped with midterms, term papers and presentations! I found out I will be having my macro economics midterm, Chinese midterm and an in-class english essay all one the same day. Wonderful. But I have to say, this is already significantly better than last term. If only I have the self control and motivation to actually get my butt to work and start doing everything now I know my life will be a lot better off when the time comes. Sadly, I work best under pressure and although I am expecting stress, it just is not close enough yet to kick me into hyper work mode! I got to look into that and find ways to see how I can get over that whole only-working-under-pressure thing.
Ending this post off, has anyone SEEN the weather in Vancouver? It is beautiful! Not too cold, not too hot– in other words, perfect! So excited for spring!

Ahh!! I want lightsaber chopsticks! 😀
They’re so amazing. I just ate with them and I swear I felt the force.
for $13 they better have the force ^_^
lol! I am SO with C on this one 😀
LOL! AHAHA! $13 for the force =P Times are hard in the Star Wars galaxy XD
Well, it didn’t come with the whole Jedi robe thing so I figured that estimate sounded about right 😛
OMG I can’t wait for Game of Thrones Season 2! Although I watched Season 1 I never read the books. Would you recommend them, even though I’ve already watched the shows?
I watched it before I read them too! What I did not like was the fact that for the first book, all the characters were already created for me through the TV show =S So I did not get to form my own versions of them in my brain, like i do with most books! BUT! I still would definitely recommend reading them! They’re an awesome series (well, so far anyway. I feel like the fourth book is a bit slow..), and you’ll definitely enjoy them 🙂 QUICK! Read the second book before the TV show shapes your characters again!!! XD
Hey, be glad you don’t live in Australia. I’m willing to bet shipping here is worse than shipping to there!
I didn’t even think about that! But naw, I’d pay the extra shipping to see you wedding ;D
