How's this for a 'bot av, by Winter Ventura? (Not available for purchase yet, but should be very soon. Be aware it's (almost) purely prim-based, not sculpties - so it weighs in at a bit over 400 prims. But just look at the loving detail in the full-size images!)


If a situation means you can't wear latex, the creative souls at Urban Apothecary can offer rubber fragrance. =:D (Curiously, they'll only deliver within the UK)

So, here's the teaser trailer for Sonic Unleashed. I'm not quite sure what to make of it, but I'm leaning towards thinking I'll enjoy the hell out of it, even if it'll tick off many. =:D

A potentially interesting development in the US hullabaloo in actually accepting gay marriage: Massachusetts may repeal a 1913 law that "prevents Massachusetts from sanctioning marriages that are not legal in the state where the couple lives. The law was enacted in part to prevent interracial couples from evading their own state's ban by traveling to Massachusetts to marry. It was a little-used and rarely enforced law until opponents used it to prevent out-of-state gay couples from getting married in Massachusetts after the state legalized same-sex marriage in 2004."

I can't really say much about it, but this analyzer display made me very happy on Friday. ^_^ We'd been encountering some odd discrepancies in talking to an SPI device, but I finally gained a clue and resolved the issue, which makes everyone here happy. That's good. ^_^

Hmm. Apparently there's a Babylon 5 roleplaying sim, at Epsilon 3.

What could have been.. apparently, at one point, Tom Baker was under consideration for providing K-9's voice. ^_^ (Though it's unclear whether they're talking about the original series, or a spinoff)

Could be fun.. a Harry Potter con - in San Francisco. ^_^ Azkatraz, July 18-21 2009. Hey, patch_bunny..

Call me domesticated, but there's a special pleasure in fresh laundry. ^_^ I ran one load on Saturday, but then remembered I hadn't put in my main leggings (easily washed, being lycra, but still) - but I obviously didn't want to use the machine again for a light load. Then I thought I'd try the heavy coat as well - very good against surprise summer rain, or even heavy winter storms, and see how it fared in the dryer. No problem at all. ^_^ So all the bedding, clothes, and towels (kitchen and bathroom) are perfectly fresh again. It's no special accomplishment, but it's still a pleasant note upon which to close out the weekend. All I'd really want now is a Westvleteren Abt.12, but I suppose that'll have to wait until I can get back there in person. Supremely wondrous.. =:9

Dinner: pizza! Here we see a pair of Before and After photos. ^_^ First, naked out of the box, and then, on the table, with nothing more than a few simple additions in between: a little (too little, really) garlic powder, herbes de provence, asafoetida, slices of ham, piri-piri marinated chicken, and thickly sliced mushrooms. Not, I think, quite as good as the M&S pizzas I'd tried a while back, but still well worth enjoying. ^_^ (The salad's a simple affair - romaine, plus a mixed rocket salad, and Sultan's Jewel tomatoes from Waitrose, which I'd especially recommend. Very tasty)

Okay, now to get this posted before I'm cast back into the salt mine. ^_^;
