I'm in several icon comms and have a few iconmakers friended so I'm always saving icons to my hard drive. Unfortunately, I have next to no icon space, so these lovely icons sit (unhappily, I would presume) in folders on my hard drive and Photobucket account. Therefore, I thought I'd do some icon "spring cleaning." Quite a few of the icons I'm using now were among my first attempts at icon-making and are overly-texty, so several of those will probably go. (This reminds me, I should really do an iconpost--I've had a few sitting in my Photobucket for a while.)
So . . . based on a meme seen on nentari's journal a while ago (but I'm not claiming it as my own idea because I'm sure someone's already done this): Comment with a few (say 4 or 5) icons of mine you rather like and tell me why you like them.
Also, the lovely diddakoi gifted me with a 1-month Netflix trial! (I've been meaning to sign up for Netflix for, oh, the past six months or so.) I have a list of movies I've not seen yet (mostly because the local movie rental place doesn't have them) and will be adding to said Netflix queue. Any suggestions of films I need to see?
And the second reason for getting Netflix: Classic Who!! Of course this brings me to another dilemma, namely where to start. ( slightly more detailed pondering under the cut )
Snagged from nentari:
Gather all your Rp journals, list the characters and any au versions you rp. Open the doors to the public side so even lurkers can ask the muses questions. Respond with that Rp account or if you don't have accounts just to the question given.
These RPGs are no longer active (the first one ended after we played the storyline out and the second was sadly closed due to inactivity), so I'm going to also list the "plot posts" we had so you can see what was going on story-wise. ^_^
From Magic War on GreatestJournal (plot post here):
* Lily Grey (aged 16)
(Fun fact: in this RPG, we chose cartoon/Disney OOC icons for our characters. Unfortunately, GJ changed their icon space numbers so quite a few of mine no longer show up.)
From Epilogs on GJ (plot post here):
* Lily Grey (aged 22)
(Sadly, this one only lasted a few months before it closed.)
I really should write a proper entry (especially since I have rather a few things to write about, including computer sadness and LYS squeeing), but I haven't done one of these in a while and they're fun to do occasionally.
( One of those '100 things about me' surveys )
It's sad when I leave the lab at 2:30 (yes, AM) and think, "Yay, early lab night!" (last week I left at around 3 on Monday and Wednesday) . . .
To-morrow I'm going to attempt to write a proper entry about this weekend. I know I always say that and then I never do, but this past weekend was the MALSM retreat and it was Fantastic.
Some meme fun taken from tinuvielberen:
lilyofshalott is blah. I've met prosthetic legs with more get-up-and-go than you. Could you be less melancholy and go out and do something? wanna know your lj's moodring color? enter your user name and hit the button. (discussion thread)
Hmm--I looked at the "How it Works" and it says it looks for the most commonly used LJ mood used on your journal . . . I haven't used "blah" recently at all. Curious.
And it's bedtime.
Wow, I haven't updated in a month. (Hence the icon--though I really wasn't watching ice melt. It's warm out, so that wouldn't have taken very long. ^_^)
Five questions o' randomness, courtesy of Erin:
If one of your friends conducted a hostile world take-over, which country/region would you want to puppet-rule?
I choose England, of course! With a sock puppet.
Bingley or Darcy? Ron or Harry? And why? (yay Seibert ^_^)
Hmm, okay. For the first, I'd have to say Darcy. Bingley is nice and all, but he's kind of a flat character and doesn't really do much or have much of a personality. And Darcy is well . . . Darcy. Do you want me to write an essay? For the second . . . this one is a little harder. Actually, neither of them is my favourite character--Remus is. But if I had to choose one, I suppose I'd say Harry.
If you could be a cowgirl, an astronaut, or a pirate, which would you choose?
Can I be a Jedi instead?
Which professor at this school would you most like to be?
Hmm, I don't know many of the professors . . . and of the ones that I do know, I don't think I'd want to be any of them.
If you could choose one magical power, what would it be?
I'd want to be an Animagus. Because that would be awesome. ^_^
That was fun! And if you reply, I'm supposed to give you 5 questions o' randomness of your own.
Ooh, tangent! This is actually somewhat related to question #2. For any of you that are fans of Pride and Prejudice, Bridget Jones's Diary, or both : Darcy vs Darcy. ^_^
(The original one is here but Colin-as-Darcy is pretty much pwning).
Okay, back to the joy and w00t-ness that is WebAssign. And then papering ::panics::
I realised I never posted the rest of the answers to the movie quote survey thing I posted earlier this month. Almost of the quotes were guessed (well done!), but here are the answers to the rest:
( I suppose a man may eat his own muffins in his own garden! )
lowc wins with eight correct answers and squeakars gets second with four--you may take your pick of Honeydukes chocolate, Wonka bars, or tea-cake (because Algy won't let you have any muffins).
And I've found there are actually quite a few Jane Austen quizzes on Quizilla, so I took several (only posting one, though).
( It is a truth universally acknowledged . . . )
Stolen from nentari (because it's fun):
The object of the game is to stump the person writing the journal. I've been writing in my live journal for over a year, and can't possibly remember all the topics I've talked about in that time.
Your job, if you choose to accept it, is to go into the archives of my journal and pull out a random quote from some time, some year, and then my job will be to see if I can remember what I was talking about. You tell me if I'm remotely right or wrong.
Nope, I can't peek, and you'll have to trust I won't. :)
Please don't pick a quote that's so random that it could apply to anything, like "meh" or "squee!" or something equally generally. Pick something that might actually be about something, but not so blatantly about something that I'll have to guess what I'm talking about.
And . . . go! :)
I was going to update daydream_icons to-night (since I've had an icon post for almost a week that hasn't been posted yet) but was distracted by stuffness. Oh well, I'll do it to-morrow. I can't believe I'm going to be 20 next week--or that the summer's almost over and I'm going back to SU in a little over a week . . .
Stolen from nentari :
One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind how great you are.
(Just because I'm curious. However, most of my shoes don't have shoelaces . . .)
I'm soo glad 'tis the weekend and everything's over (well, at least until our next project) . . . I think I shall actually update in a little bit, after I clean the room (because it really needs vacuuming) . . . Wow, that was a random change in song styles: Loreena McKennitt to "Good Morning, Starshine" (the Oliver version--I sadly don't have the Sarah Brightman one) . . .
I've had a parcel waiting for me in the mailroom since Thurs, but unfortunately 'twill have to wait until Monday because it's closed on weekends . . . 'tis probably a Valentine's parcel from my parents . . . . which reminds me, I really need to write my valentines and send them out . . .
Anyway, I should probably post the reason for my post, right? (and that was semi-redundant) . . . This is stolen from Erin, Erin, and Jess:
If you read this, even if I don't speak to you often, you must post a memory of me. It can be anything you want, it can be good or bad, just so long as it happened.
Then, post this to your journal. See what people remember about you.
Want to know something really pathetic? I've been procrastinating updating my LJ by making icons *hits self repeatedly with wet lasagna noodles* . . . 'tis sad, I know . . .
Stolen from both Erins, actually: Take the first sentence from the first entry for every month, and put them together together.
( notice a pattern? )
I found this on http://www.lunaestas.com/blog/
Choose a band/artist and answer only in song titles by that band: Sarah Brightman (I would use Josh, but Sarah has more albums = more song titles) . . . and since there were so many choices, I went song-title happy and used more than one for most questions, so I shall lj-cut this so 'tisn't huge:
( What You Never Know . . . or How Sweet the Answer )
And now it's O.Chem time again :(
