eruthros: Delenn building the crystal machine in season 1  of B5, captioned "foreshadowing" (B5 - Delenn incredible foreshadowing)
[personal profile] eruthros
1. Friday night, I didn't have anything to watch after dinner, and [personal profile] cereta has been posting about mid-season-three B5 and making me nostalgic, so I put on 3x09, Point of No Return.

... yeah, I should know better. Especially since this happens every time I watch an episode between the middle of season two and the middle of season three. *claws up from underneath like five episodes in a row* Well, except I skipped Late Delivery from Avalon, because really, jms.

2. Favorite typo seen today: "... and untied the red silk chords."

3. This picture is for [personal profile] thingswithwings, who didn't really believe me when I told her how tall the tomatoes were. The tomatoes are this tall:

the top of a tomato plant next to a measuring stick with pictures of dinosaurs on it; the top leaf hits the 151 cm mark

So there you go. The tomatoes have reached the Jurassic period on my Prehistoric Life Folding Ruler! And they only have 8 cm to go to make it to the Cretaceous! So they've got to be pretty big. And to think that when we planted they they were barely working on the Ordovician!

Or, if you prefer, they are currently 151 cm tall, which makes them just about an inch shy of five feet.

Also, we spaced them according to the size that tomatoes got here last year, but we forgot one important thing: last year all the tomatoes here were attacked by fungus. So they are already a couple feet taller than last years' tomatoes, and there haven't even been any ripe tomatoes yet. Whoops.

4. I have now given out eight hundred [community profile] kink_bingo cards, and T'wings has given some out, too, which is just ... wow. Now I have to make some more (using [personal profile] chagrined's lovely program! zie is still kb mvp!) which is kind of hilarious, because it takes the program like three minutes to make a thousand bingo cards ... but it does them in huge 744 kb bmp files. So then I put them through a photoshop batch processor to convert them to smaller jpgs, which takes like forty-five minutes. This never ceases to amuse me.

That is a pretty awesome typo! It sort of makes me want some kind of interesting synesthesia fic where it could not be a typo. :3

okay, WOW. I'm still sort of having trouble conceptualizing the height of the tomatoes, but . . . I guess I'll see them when I get home! And then I too will eat MANY tomatoes.
