Canadian artist Phil Postma did these cute reimaginings of the Star Trek and Star Wars characters as he thinks they might appear in a Pixar movie.
I'm definitely seeing Linguini from Rattatoile in some of these noses. :-)

12:07 pm - Snow Day
Snowing here. It started last night about ten till seven and has been pretty steady all night.
Fortunately my office saw the writing on the wall and wrote off today before the end of the work day yesterday. So I'm at home today, trying to get my work-issued laptop to accept my password so I can check my e-mail. Emphasis on "trying."
A guy came by earlier and shoveled out the first 12 hours of snow, so when I go out later it'll be a little easier for me. Money well spent.
I guess this is an opportunity for me to catch up on household chores, and some sleep.

04:23 pm - DVD Cases
I have a couple hundred empty DVD cases that I got from a friend who was doing some housecleaning, and I'm trying to figure out what to do with the ones I don't need for myself.
They're mostly single-disc black cases but there are some clear, white, and specialty colors (very few). Also there are some two-disc cases and a few multiple-disc cases.
DVD case art inserts for random US-released anime titles are available if you need to replace your own case art or are just curious.

01:11 pm - Meat Machinery
Anyone know where to buy a thingie to hand-press hamburger patties? They never cook evenly for me when I make them out of round lumps of meat which are then mashed on the countertop.
My mom used to have this hamburger-sized ring to put the meat in and a hand-powered piston-ey thing that you'd mash the ground meat flat with.

02:27 pm - I Swore I'd Not Pass This Up...
Several years ago I remember hearing about a movie theater somewhere that ran a LOTR marathon when the 3rd & final film was released... and I was seriously bummed out when I realized that the date had already passed.
Despite the fact it was two states away and on a work day, I half-seriously was calculating whether I could have gotten away with taking off only one day of work to attend.
Standing in the ruins of Tara, I swore that I would never be hungry again -- wait, no.... Sitting in front of my computer, what I said was "Crud. Now I'll never have the chance to see the extended versions in a theater marathon."
But now I do:
The Colonial Theatre in nearby Phoenixville, Pennsylvania is doing it with breaks between the films for lunch and dinner on Sunday 06/21.
