Quasi Hatrack has asked me to step in while he has a weekend away. Happy to do so. I'm going to put two people up each day, hopefully polar opposite from each other in some respects, but still geeky to many of us.

Megan Fox turns 28 today. Known for being hot, mostly, but also from her roles in Michael Bay's Transformers and Ninja Turtles movies.

And one of my favourite actresses, fellow kiwi Melanie Lynskey turns 37 today. Aside from her recurring role on Two and a Half Men, she's known for the Peter Jackson film Heavenly Creatures, one of my favourite films Ever After, and she also dated a friend of mine for a while. Now she's marred to Jimmi Simpson, though.
