So the avatars for Kingdoms of Camelot are handily lj icon size...

Yeah, went and uploaded some new icons. Needed the revamp. Have decided I really do rather adore my layout and colour scheme, have done so for over three years now, I believe.

It is a likely possibility I will be in Vancouver, BC in July next year. And that means a trip down to WA to see mum and Gary and show off Seattle to Alan.

This means I really, really need job to save up dosh and everything. And this is also remembering I still want a sea kayak by this summer. Because, yeah, I live by the beach!

Um, if you're curious, go have a look at the [livejournal.com profile] sg1_five_things latests posts after they're unscreened on September 14. I decided to write for a couple.

Banana choc chip muffins and Banana Cake are still made of win.

Joe and Heaven being back is made of fail.

Alan wants the computer, so I better stop all this now. I'll be happy when he gets his own box again.

Hmmm... approaching time to revamp my icons again, methinks. I can imagine how fun that will be on dial-up. I still swear it's got slower than it ever used to be. All the priority given to broadband and all that.

Funny how I went looking for Lorne-centric fic and got sucked in my John/Cam. Flyboy fic is my new crack.

Anyhow, Joe and Heaven left on Tuesday for.... Hastings I believe. Something about ice skating maybe? Left us kid-free for about five days I think. So... "The Whore" has come out to play. Good times have been had.

We rented a couple of movies last night, being a rent one get another free deal, so we got The Tale of Despereaux, and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. I enjoyed Tale of Despereaux, but unfortunately Rise of the Lycans skipped out on us and wouldn't work properly, so we've got credit on file for at least one free movie to make up for the free movie that didn't work this time.

Roast Lamb for dinner tonight. Mmmm...

So, I really wanted to show this icon to a friend of mine only to discover that I haven't got it archived on my photobucket account, so, I couldn't. But I thought I'd ask if any of you might have it?

It's a sort of crossover of Stargate Atlantis and some Firefly/Serenity dialogue, basically about Atlanis Re: the Wraith and Michael, and Mal's pretty speech about the Alliance shifting back to the idea that they could make people better. It's rather cool, if kinda disturbing, because one doesn't like to think of the good guys being kinda bad guys, and all that.

I thought I'd ask, anyhow. 'Salright if I get nothing.

Side note, obnoxious people should know better than to be obnoxious in a library. Most library patrons get very snotty towards inconsiderate fuckers, and books are handy weapons when it comes down to it.


The Mord-Sith glare is a good one for making them run, too.

I said, "If it needed me."

Switched in new icons again. I realised it had been a while, and some were being neglected. :( I'm covering more fandoms, now...

Cooking spaghetti bolognaise tonight. Should be interesting, with it being a larger group than I've ever cooked for before. Yay.

Amazing that I've received 3,500 comments exactly. That's pretty cool. It's my 891st post... and I've had my lj since November 2003. There's all sorts of other quirky little stats and stuff I could come up with concerning my lj, but, well, who cares? It would only really be fascinating to me.

Because I love bringing it up, someone linked me to the youtube video involving the elephant on the trampoline that led to that oh-so-hypnotic icon. It's pretty damn cool, although I kept expecting something horrible to happen to the elephant. Not because I wanted to, but because it would totally make me flinch.

I haven't been feeling that talkative lately, or in the mood to respond to emails... which is a bad thing. Because I really should at least acknowledge that yes, I got this or that text or email, and I'm fine/alive/what-have-you... but then whoever contacted me with be in the mood to chat and ask questions, and I don't fucking feel like sharing. It's not like there's anything going on. I'm simply in a non-social mood. Thing. I don't know how to explain it. Reclusive? Temporarily?

I just want to sit back and watch, for a while.

xans: Xans (Seabeck Hicks)
It's just a few days away and perhaps a few on my f-list who'd get them haven't seen these icons before and I've had a couple in my possession for some time... so anyway, I thought I'd share.

I caught myself staring at the bouncing elephant on a trampoline icon again. It's just so damned...hypnotic. I keep expecting it to jump higher, or maybe for the trampoline to finally break under it... or I get caught up in seeing how its trunk lifts and falls as well, but I can't see its tail doing the same. Weirdness.

It's my birthday in a couple months and once again, I'm not excited. I know [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t would love for me to come up and we'd do something to celebrate, but, really... I don't like celebrating my birthday. I mean, presents are nice, and all, but really I'd much prefer being able to buy for myself whatever it is I desire, not hoping for someone to pick up on my birthday wishes. And, yeah, okay, someone baking me a cake would be nice but it's not necessary.

I just... I mean, what's the point? Only a handful of people really care I'm getting older, and, yeah, there's just... no motivation to be all jubilant about yet another birthday. Meh.

From [livejournal.com profile] blue_raven: Oooh, okay. Interests: 'Brotherly hug my arse', 'fox terriers', 'Piglet' and for icons, 'Seabecks Hicks', 'Drunk guys', 'Rock on Dean'.

Brotherly hug my arse - In the third Harry Potter book, during that explosive scene in the Shrieking Shack, the text reads that when Remus realised Sirius was innocent, he "embraced him like a brother." It's sort of a shipper's denial about that, because I will always imagine they were together.

Fox terriers - My mum and her cousin both had foxies, and they were just adorable. Incredibly smart. Fly's nickname was Houdini, because he was notoriuos for finding ways out of the yard to wander off and explore. They have absolutely no road sense, and love to try choking themselves on the leash when taken for a walk, but they're awesome dogs. They're little, and clever, and cute:

Piglet - Everyone has their favourite Whinnie the Pooh character, right? Most people, it seems, like Tigger or Eeyore, although I'm sure there are others who adore some other character. An ex- of mine liked Kanga and Roo. For me, it's Piglet. He's the one that doesn't get the limelight very often. He's quiet, and shy, and smart, and the best of friends for Pooh. So I like him.

- Last place I lived in the States was this tiny little place called Seabeck, on the Olympic Peninsula, just outside of the town Silverdale. Anyway, when I went through my entries to tag them all, I found an old conversation I'd transcribed that I still remember, and still giggle about. So when I got in an icon making mood, I had to throw in the best part.

- This is another icon made from rereading old entries. It's a sort of motto I should try to live by, given some of the not so grand times I've had with drunk guys. It's not like any of it ever led to bad sex, exactly, but things could have been better, if they weren't drunk. Or I was more drunk, or something.

- Dean/Metallicar is my OTP. *snickers* Or possibly Sam/Dean/Metallicar, but anyway. I like this icon because, well, I adore Dean (and how much he loves the car) and rocking out to whatever music... And everyone's got those "Rock on!" moments, yeah?

Mmm, anyway, despite my efforts (ha!) I've been totally drawn into the McShep pairing and reading far more fic than I thought I would. It's kind of like my weakness for Daniel/Jack. It's like... I don't ship them, certainly not what I'd want as a canon pairing, but I keep reading fics where they're together anyway, because they're just so believable in the fic. I'm weird, I know. And I'm still going to read all sorts of fic. Heh.

Has anyone ever been surprised with sex? Like, you weren't expecting to get laid and weren't even feeling that desirable, but whoever has the job of satisfying those needs jumped you anyway? (Or at least tried to, and you figured what the hell anyway, despite the not knowing it was gonna happen.) Yeah. Also, this guy makes me feel like I weigh next to nothing when he picks me up and carries me to the bed.

xans: Xans (Naked vs. Nekkid)
So holy crap this post ended up with way more icons than expected! But still, they were fun to make, and I hope some of you want to run off with some of them. At the very least, it can't hurt to look, eh? Eh? I thought so.


What's your favourite sin? )

As if that's not enough, I went and played around with some other stuff, and thus...
Let there be orange )

Nope! Not done yet! There's MORE:
They are pretty, mmk? )

Please tell me you like 'em and are running off with a whole bunch. :D I have to go through all my old icon posts again, and fix the links because I got the grand idea to reorganise my files on photobucket. So those ones will be temporarily not there as I fix all that.

And because no entry of mine lately has been complete without a meme... here's another meme where I do most the work! Leave me a comment, and I will...

1. Tell you why I friended you
2. Associate you with something - a song, a color, a photo, etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Associate you with a character.
6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7. Tell you my favorite user picture of yours.
8. In return, I ask you to post this in your LJ.

The weather here is le shit, and I'm cold again. But happy.

I am so hypnotised by this icon:

I don't wanna take my eyes off it.

Clearly my body is out to get me since The Curse + Sex Dreams = Frustration on my part. I actually had a fairly fantastic night of sleeping with engaging dreams, I just didn't need them taking a sexual turn, or anything. But when I got up this morning, I was amazed to see the sky an amazing shade of pink before I remembered that old axiom about red in the morning being not such a good thing.

I finally heard from [livejournal.com profile] diea, which is grand, because I haven't seen her online in ages. I miss Our Conversation. But I also can't resent her having a life outside of the internet. I miss chatting with a lot of my friends actually, but it's like... I don't know what to talk about. I hate to talk just about fandom, although I have my many tv/movie/book loves and it is grand to squee over that stuff with someone--anyone.

But life itself has been nothing notable or exciting, so it's not like I have much about myself to discuss--and hey, who wants to talk to someone only concerned with talking about themselves? Of course asking a million questions interrogation style isn't the way to go, either. I'm just... not sure how to reach out to some people again.

Anyway, enough of my whining. *goes back to watching icon*

xans: Xans (Boo Brady)
My icons and interests to explain, from [livejournal.com profile] pink_faerie81:

rusty spoons - I had internet friend who, many years ago, once threatened to castrate his real life friend with a rusty spoon for daring to chat with me. Well that phrase, that form of punishment, really tickled me and I took it on as a personal motto of sorts... if a boy crossed me, he was going to get the rusty spoon treatment.

puddlejumpers - Puddlejumpers are ships that can travel through the Stargate and are capable of spaceflight as well as in the atmostphere. They don't hold up so well in deep water, though. :D I loved them from the first moment I saw one on Stargate Atlantis (although, of course, prerequisite would be me having the ATA gene, or John Sheppard to fly for me :P).

snarksexual - I came across this term in an icon, which said, "Snarksexual: because there is such a thing as too dumb to fuck." And I loved it. There's a community, even, [livejournal.com profile] snarksexual, but it's fairly quiet over there. Anyway, it's all about being attracted to sarcastic people, because sarcasm is hot.

- They say if you have to explain the joke... :P Okay, so there's the Borg saying, "Resistance is futile" when they're on their assimilation bent. Also, the resistance of an object opposing electric current passing through it is measured in ohms (Ω). Less than 1 ohm, and there's pretty much no resistance at all. I hated physics but I still love this joke.

- The dress is pretty. In fact, I want that dress. But also, I just like the colours and the girl, and the fact she's dancing--or about to dance--and I can see it just in the way she's posed.

- You know how there's those sayings like, "OMG racecar bling bling" or "im in ur [noun], [verb]in ur [noun}z" and the like? Well, this is the new internet fad. It comes from a metaquote involving a girl saying to Tim Curry, "That'll give you, er, bees." to her mortification and our amusement. Plus everytime I watch the icon I imagine his voice as he says, "Oh, indeed."

Now it's your turn, folks. Drop me a comment and I will give you 3 interests on your list and 3 of your icons to explain.

*giggles* I haven't played with the colorbar generator in ages, but look what it made:
beauty and the beast is love
brought to you by the isLove Generator

Tres sweet.

xans: Xans (Inner Squint)
Not the one I was planning to make, but I'll make it anyway.

I might have got a wee bit carried away. )

Comment. Take. Yarr.

Also, my last entry would like some comment-love, too. Hint, hink, wink, nudge, GO LEAVE ME COMMENTS 'CAUSE I AM A COMMENT & CAPSLOCK WHORE. Yes.

xans: Xans (Default)
Go look at my userpics. Ask me anything about any one of them--why I chose it, why that fandom, where the hell did I find it--anything at all.

An even bigger challenge: go look at said userpics, pick one, and write a drabble-length piece about it in the comments. It needn't be exactly 100 words. Could be more, could be less, but more than a sentence or two, if you please. If you do this, I will go look at your userpics, and return the favour.

xans: Xans (Default)
Amanda Tapping in only a flag + Same thing, wallpaper this time + Amanda Tapping sexy lingerie-type wallpaper + Daniel Jackson "Fallen" wallpaper + Teal'c, Daniel, and Sam: Charlie's Jack's Angels? + Fantasy-esque thing

Fanfic Links )

Because there's just a handful of them, I'm not bothering with a cut for these Daniel Jackson icons. *nods*

01. 02. 03. 04.

And thus ends this rather Stargate and Daniel heavy post, mostly made for the sake of [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t than anyone else, not that you're not allowed to enjoy it, too. If that is your desire. :)

xans: Xans (Default)
Zomg, yes, I am making an icon post. I just got sorta, bored, and inspired, and, hell, these are just the really fucking "simple text on simple base" style ones, anyhow. So... onwards!


A batch of em for the taking )

Soooo, comment, credit, enjoy... all that jazz, jah?
