In the meantime, a couple of random linkies. Neither an April Fool's joke, honest -- well, maybe the mermaid is, but I just thought it was kinda cool.

Speaking of April Fool's, I found it very gratifying that after I re-posted sushispook's link about the "new web security feature" to the nonbiz list at work, one of the product managers from the web security product line re-re-posted it to a couple of the serious product-related lists. I was oddly tickled that he liked it -- plus it was much funnier with his straight-face intro (along the line of "we don't usually have much trouble with this competitor, but this time they've really come up with an amazing feature"). *grin*

Therefore, a collection of random linkies:

In case you feel the need for a little rube goldberg.

On my way to remembering the phrase "rube goldberg machine", I came across this dictionary with word-network-mappy goodness. I'm generally sceptical about the utility of this kind of viz, but it's fun to play with.

I <3 this rather macabre series of paintings: freak parade. Especially love the way each connects to the next...

I'm not usually that excited about Legos, but this post-apocalyptic eco-punk crawler town is pretty cool.

Rest your eyes on some rather splendid nature photos.

On the idolatry side, we have the most utterly fabulous Obama action figure. Be sure to scroll down to see the poses with the samurai sword and the light saber.

To even the scale, here's some snark.

OK, so I took the day off work in order to stave off panic about holiday preparations (or lack thereof). But that doesn't mean I can't waste a little time )

This morning at the farmer's market I bought three different kind of cherries. Yum! Greed is fun!

For the crafty types: Surely we all *need* Cthulhu ski masks

Especially for past residents of Pittsburgh, Cleveland, or Detroit (or any reasonable equivalent):

My dream home will have space for these bookcases, and these tables, and will be in one of these buildings (especially love #18).

I enjoyed this little new yorker essay about conservative vs progressive family values. Although of course, it seems kind of wildly oversimplified, relative to, um, the actual families of actual people I know? Still, it is interesting.

via a link in this sfgate blog entry, which was one of the first places I saw the understandably bitter comparison between the improving rights of chickens and the reduced rights of gays in our beautiful state of CA
