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...)
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.

The Ship Meme
- 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.
