This is cool: The equivalent of an ASCII-art map of Lake Michigan, done with a typewriter.
Having one of those days...

This is the most snow #LAX ever sees!
Seriously, it hasn't snowed in the Los Angeles basin since 1962.
We get snow in the mountains most years. And the San Fernando Valley apparently got a snowstorm in 1989. But the coast? Basically never.
Two years ago today, I tried to beat the stress by driving around the coast of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and found myself at Point Vicente. I posted this video the following Tuesday morning, captioned, "Because we can all use 18 seconds of calm today."
It seems like a good time to post it again.
US politics, advice from The Hulk Show more
As Kurt Busiek puts it, "Listen to the Hulk"
US politics, voting Show more
The polling place was full this morning. I had to drive all the way around the block to find parking (notice the line of cars), and wondered if I should have walked there and back instead of stopping by on my way to work.
But they had just enough voting booths to handle everyone, and I was in and out in about 10 minutes.
While looking up importers that I could use to move various third-party archives into a self-hosted WordPress site, I found one that supports a bunch of services...
Hey, I used to have a ton of stuff on Del.icio.us! I don't know what percent of the links still *work*, but I should at least export it.
Yeah, I'm guessing that's not gonna happen:
I went back to the same restaurant last night. 2.5 months later* the door still isn't fixed, and the sign has another handwritten addition!
*I took the original photo in early August & kept forgetting to post it until earlier this month.

It's not a very visually exciting, informative, or interesting poster in itself...
But what *is* interesting is that it's a clean break from the look of the Harry Potter movie posters. Heck, you have to look hard even to find the words "Fantastic Beasts."
And yet the sign of the Deathly Hallows looms over everyone, unmistakably linking it to the wizarding world we've come to know.
An actual notification I received a few minutes ago. I had been planning to check in sometime this weekend, but now I wonder if I should just declare Facebook notification bankruptcy instead...
Every time I go back to this restaurant I remember that I still haven't posted this photo, and by the time I have a chance to post it, I've forgotten again.
Well, I finally remembered!
The really funny thing is that I momentarily reached for this door handle after taking the photo...

Cosplay: Professor Trelawney Show more
My wife has been talking about cosplaying Professor Trelawney for a while now. She put together the pieces for a costume over the last couple of weeks, and wore them on Saturday at Long Beach Comic Con.
It was a huge success! Lots of people recognized the character and wanted photos. We even ran into "Mad-Eye" Moody on the way into the convention!

R2-D2 is looking extra boxy. Maybe it's the Minecraft version? ;-)
Spotted in San Diego last week.
By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.
