Lazy Sunday?

I didn't do any of the photo stuff yesterday, and now I'm not sure if I'm going to do any of it today. I think part of me was saying, "Dude. this is a 3- or 4-day project, minimum!" so I was inhibited from starting...or maybe I was just more in the mood to laze around. Still, it's been nice treating Mom and Dad's Dundee place as kind of a vacation house. I'll stay long enough to watch the Seahawks on the folks' hella-big TV (not quite "Frank's 2000-inch TV," but substantial) then head home.

Maybe the Dundee Farmer's Market is still on; I'll go over midday and check [Edited to Add: I checked online. It ran through last month. So, no side trip.]. The husband of my former company supervisor (as opposed to the OHSU supervisors I report to on-site) helps to run the market, so I might run into one or both of them. If, course, it's still running into the fall.

Last night I didn't watch the library DVD of Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai because it refused to play properly, so I watched the extras disc for The Incredibles. Wow; I already boggled at how much work and anal-retentiveness is needed to make an animated movie. Now I boggle more boggling-ly (a seamstress brought in to help the animators simulate fabric?). And Samuel L. Jackson's rave-out on the "Mr. Incredible and Pals" extra is still priceless ("Oh, I get caught! The black superhero gets caught! Oh, I'm sorry: the tan superhero gets caught!").
