A brief update: I got a few of the things on my to do list done. Sort of. Laundry. Well, I have clean clothes for the week.  That counts, doesn't it? Posted pics of Worldcon, but still no real post about it. Hmm. Maybe later this week. Falcon Ridge pics? Ha! Still way too many to sort through. Maybe in a few weeks. Household chores? Don't make me laugh. I did get a big chunk of the yard work done though with a lot of help from my housemate.  There's still one corner that needs to be dealt with, but I think it can wait until this heatwave breaks.  So I feel like I accomplished something, but there is still lots more to do.

Now, off to the gym and then ruining it all by eating wings and drinking beer with a friend later tonight.

Here's some random stuff that entertained me today. Maybe it will amuse you too.

Encyclopedia Dramatica. Wikipedia with snark. From the ED's About page: "Encyclopedia Dramatica's purpose is to provide a central catalog for the e-public to view parody and satire of drama, memes, e-pals and other interesting happenings on the internets. The goal is to provide comprehensive, reference-style parody, to poke fun at everyone and everything on the internet."

Lightsaber Chopsticks! I totally want these, just because they are so utterly geeky.




















You're still here? It's over! ...Go home.

In an interesting bout of synchronicity, today I ran into an old friend I hadn't seen in several years, and was told that she and her husband were in the process of selling their house, and intending to use the proceeds to make a zombie movie. Clearly, something is afoot here...

...I think it can wait until this heatwave breaks.

We're having one here too. After having a pleasantly mild summer for the most part, during the last week or two we've finally hit what I think of as typical Toronto summer weather -- hot, humid, and smoggy. Bleh. Fall can't come soon enough for me...

Sounds like typical Albany weather. Hazy, hot and humid with a 98% chance of construction delays.

Same here! It's been like this for what, two weeks? I'm already over it. Next season please.

Well, she did say the one film they'd made thus far was a documentary - I should have put two and two together! Maybe they're secretly in league with the zombies, and will document the invasion in exchange for having their brains eaten last.

Well, it's started to slightly cool off here, and there's more rain and thunderstorms and whatnot predicted for the rest of the week, so maybe relief is in sight.. Albany and Toronto seem to be close enough together to get more or less the same weather patterns, so hopefully it will happen for you too.
