Return of the Jedi Hobbit

I'm back from a day trip to Topeka, Kansas, our state capital. Some years ago, Topeka was overrun by a historical reenactment Confederate army, but they have rebuilt nicely. I've even visited some seven or eight times since I came to Kansas. (For those of you who are... untenured: do the math!)

A light for when all others go out: the HardwareQuest

The parentals took me to Red Lobster to celebrate a recent promotion, and afterwards, we headed over to Lowe's Home Improvement (yet another store we don't have in the Little Apple). A guy could really get used to having a real, honest-to-goodness hardware store around, you know. (Yes, I'm trolling. Local men do not comment enough in this heah journal! Respect mah authoritah! I hate you gahs... so much... *ahem*)

I had a $20 gift card courtesy of a web promotion, which I decided to use on:

  • 1. A new wire cutting and crimping tool: $4.95
    Gardner Bender GS-66
    (Agh burzum-ishi krimping tûl!)

  • 2. A 6-lb box of Miracle-Grô: $8.47
    (It's the closest thing this Banazîr can have to a box marked 'G')

  • 3. A wearable, hands-free LED light: extra bright, lithium battery-operated, and the bulb never burns out: $5.97
    (A light for when all others go out...)

Total plus tax: $20.83
Getting started on The ProjektTM: PRICELESS

Cute kitty. Watercolor. What's not to like?

Now this video from chunkygoat is just adorable. About 35-40 seconds into it, watch the "model" appear and become interested in the evolving watercolor.

Doubtless the LOTR where a CHOKLIT-crazy Denethor is played by Alfred Molina. Coming to theatres, Lenten season, 2025.

The Ship Meme

From havocthecat:

  • 1. Comment with any 'ship from a fandom that you know I like, or at least have some knowledge about.

  • 2. I will ramble for 100 words about aforementioned 'ship. This may be incoherent gushing or exclamations of disgust, depending on what it is.

  • 3. Put this on your LJ, if you are so inclined.

Y'know, now that I think about it, I am not very big on ship from SF fandoms. I have a few pet ones, though, and will reward you with exclamations about how well you know me if you guess one.
