A little snow, a plunger, a whisk, and a... turkey baster!?

RE-FRIG-ERATE!

RE-FRIG-ERATE! RE-FRIG-ERATE!

Ah, at last! It's that time of year when we're mostly glad we don't have snow yet, but we long for the chance to build a masterpiece like the Dalek above. Hopefully we'll see enough white stuff in Fairfax, Virginia to make a few Weeping Snow Angels of our own--but not enough to trap us in our cubes with dwindling food supplies.

In the meantime, here are our favorite links from the past week to distract you. Enjoy!
