Cuddly Okami (link roundup)

Okami "mochi" by Bobbin4apples on sale at Etsy.

Okami by Lori Russo, who has various cute plush creations on sale at Etsy. Via.

And a few more links:

1. Funny comic strip about printers. Although, aside from the cost of ink, I've been pretty happy with my HP 5510xi all in one. Via.

2. ID Magazine used to ask actors to attend press parties. The actors didn't get paid, but they got free food at the parties and got to act and meet people. ID didn't have to pay employees, still got the press packets courtesy of the actors attending the parties, and got a reputation for having charming and attractive employees - - all for the cost of a few "associate editor" business cards. Via.

3. Supposedly a study shows that ski resorts were overestimating snowfall by "23 per cent on Saturdays and Sundays" to trick people into coming to the slopes. Apparently a new iPhone app about snowfall has defeated the practice. Somewhere there must be a class action lawyer putting together a lawsuit right now.
