holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] aurora_novarum asked me about five of my icons, which I will blather on about below.

If you want to play,

1. Reply to this post with "tattoine", and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.


Icons Ahoy! )

In the aftermath of the jello deathmatch, [livejournal.com profile] annerbhp and I were talking about how really, although I am a very formiddable opponent (really!), cats do tend to trump fish in general. She said that what I needed was some laser beams to help even the score... and then she made me icons!



*bounces*

Aren't they brilliant?

[livejournal.com profile] annerbhp told me to be in bed no later than 38 minutes ago, but I'm risking her wrath to bring you the icon I used for this post (made by me, and yes, shareable) and a list of the things I did today:

  • Went to the opera (Tosca, and actually a satellite feed of a live opera from the Met).
  • shopped and bought myself an amazing new jacket, deep blue (almost purple) velveteen-y fabric, with the double buttons. It was LOVE, people.
  • Made quinoa.
  • Made cinnamon rolls.
  • Watched SGU (needs more sauce (no, I don't know what that means, either)), Sanctuary (YAY!), and CSI (OMG WHERE IS MY GEEK LOVE???).
  • Did laundry.
  • Swept kitchen.
  • Stayed up past my bedtime.


In the order of cool, I bring you: In B Flat, which is a youtube interactive experiment thing, and it's awesome. VERY video heavy.

Do Something Scary fic update: Back from beta, with many flaws pointed out to me, some of which I can probably solve rather quickly. Maybe. May I just say, people, that you guys are awesome about this whole beta thing? I mean, [livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 pointed out all the things I couldn't see that were just not working, and I know the fic will be hundreds of times better for it.

Also, I am fairly sure I won't make the deadline (tomorrow), so I was telling [livejournal.com profile] ultranos_fic that I clearly needed an icon to express my lateness, and so she made the one currently gracing this entry. I'm delighted that she thinks the only thing that would keep me from a deadline is the apocalypse. (She clearly didn't know me during the Pirate ficathon, or Apocalypse_kree.)

Debrief, on the other hand, is coded and more or less ready to roll. Woot!

I have something every night of the week this week. Except Saturday, which I shall devote to writing and/or sleeping.

I also made two new icons myself today, in between creating and utilizing many more subfolders to organize my computer. I really needed something to show my love for Alexandra Cabot from SVU. (Gazer, you know that icon we both liked? It's too big for lj. *facepalm*)

I'm working on getting better at this, so if you have any critiques, go ahead. *g*

Here are three icons I made for those of us who can't turn on the news without hearing "Stormwatch 2008!" or that the "Snowmagedden!" is nearly upon us.

A couple of very brief thoughts on the last two episodes of Atlantis. Keep in mind that I am sick and my sense of humor is whacked.

Travelers )

And now that I've stated the obvious:

Tabula Rasa )

Oh, and I'm sick, and I'm trying to remind myself to work on NaNo instead of makes icons. Which, you know, I suck at. But it's awfully fun! And if anyone can point me to a couple good places to get caps...or maybe a site that's called "iconing for complete dummies"? Yeah.
