[ profile] backtodragonfly - a Gilmore Girls rewatch community. JOIN TODAY!

So I would suggest joining to all of my fellow Gilmore Girl friends. We're watching 3 eps a week with discussions on Wednesday and graphics (i.e. icons, banners, wallpapers, etc.) on Saturdays. All Gilmore Girl fans are welcome to join. Keep in mind, this is a rewatch community which means that there will be spoilers. Lots of spoilers. We will discuss EVERYTHING about the show and that will include spoilers because we'll probably end up discussing future episodes. Also, we respectfully request that everyone be polite. Ship to Ship Combat is prohibited, as is flaming, trolling and general rude behavior. Asshattery will not be tolerated.

In other news, I finally made some Mercy Thompson icons. When I officially post them in my graphics community, I'll let everyone know here and probably post a link to them in the official Mercy Thompson Comm.

As Sunday's go, today has been pretty laid back. [ profile] forgotten_relic came up to visit (again) because her niece was born yesterday morning. Since the family wasn't expecting the baby until some time today, her early arrival meant that Relic ended up coming down to spend the day here yesterday when she had originally not been planning on it. Once she finished visiting with her brother and the new baby, she came to my place to crash (natch). We were up until 2:30 this morning gabbing, because it had been almost a year since we'd had some time to girl talk.

At any rate, she left shortly before lunch today (she was going to be lunching with her family), so I took a quick shower before starting in on the cleaning. When that was done, I opted to just chill for the rest of the day, though I'm probably going to dig out some fabric scraps here before too long to piece together to make a banner. Said banner will be to display my growing collection of pins (kind of like [ profile] travellyr's, if you know what I'm talking about) that are currently living in a plastic bag in the guest room closet. I'd like to display them, and I'll probably hang them up on the empty hook in the living room. My husband can just deal with it. X3

Further more, I've found all of the official cover art for the Mercy Thompson books online. I have downloaded it and now I shall make icons. I also have some stills from various Harry Potter movies as well as Doctor Who with the intent of making icons for that. I do have an icon journal ([ profile] angelrelic_icon that only have Fire Emblem 9/10 icons. Ultimately I need to just sit down and make the icons, which will also have me pulling out my tablet (I find it much easier to do photo editing with my tablet than with a mouse, which is something that I thought I'd NEVER warm up to).

Lastly, my computer seems to have completely recovered. No sticky keys. It shuts off and STAYS off. No more jittery screen. All in all things seem to be working better - but I'm still gonna back up my music on the HTPC and then start backing up important documents, etc. onto CDs. (Though...theoretically I could just transfer them onto a flash drive and then insert the flash drive into the HTPC and put ALL of my files on to DVDs...but I think that's more work than I'm willing to put in, at the moment.

I did a chunk of my Christmas shopping today, however my step-dad's actual gift will not arrive until AFTER the holiday, so I'm gonna get him something small to get on actual Christmas and then when his gift arrives I'll get it to him. However, the rest of the items that were ordered online will arrive with plenty of time before the big holiday (including the gift for my mother's birthday, which is a week before Christmas). Both of my brothers are presenting problems, however my brother's love in Lego AND Indiana Jones means that I can get him one of the sets, but I may have to talk to my younger sister about which ones he has so I don't end up repeating. My other brother will probably get something for Wii or's kind of a pain in the butt to shop for him because he has no idea what he wants. Boys on the F-list, what does a 23 year old boy want?

I already know what my husband is getting, as does he. Two things for sure, and since we decided to spend no more than $100 on each other (or just a little bit over, if that was how it happened) he'll be getting something interesting and small. Not sure what, exactly (I think I'm only going to have about fifteen to twenty dollars to work with), but something. (Anyone have any ideas?)

Anyway, I also decided that I needed a new icon. Behold, Meeko from Pocahontas, slamming the compass against the rock. I felt that I needed icon that showed frustration and not necessarily anger (which is what Renge is fore) or confusion (Shigure). Besides, I love me some raccoon....

Dude, totally watched a squirrel fall about ten feet in the shrubs that separate the apartment complex from the houses behind them. Heh. Kamikaze squirrels!!! (Squirrel, where?)

Back on topic, Meeko is my buddy - I instantly attached myself to the little gluttonous trouble maker. The next Christmas my parents got me a HUGE Meeko plush, he's probably close to life size, granted he lives near people. X3 For over ten years Meeko has been my snuggle buddy and constant companion - and if there was enough room in the bed with me and my husband, he'd STILL be in bed with me. He never complains when I'm sick nor does he care if I snore. He's just the right size for me to wrap my arms around and snuggle tight. Meeko is my friend, and always will be. I fully expect my children to look at this well loved raccoon and ask why I love him so much, but the first time they hug him, they'll understand. (Quick anecdote: Whenever my younger siblings were sick, I'd lend them Meeko because for some reason, he always made them feel better.)

I may make a few more Pocahontas themed icons, or not. I have a bunch of screen shots that I can use but I don't think that I'll make a ton and post them for others to use. At this point I just don't feel like it. (Oh yes, I'm feeling lazy at the moment.) Besides, I have more important things to do (like make [ profile] chaosblue 's dress).

First of all, a meme snagged from [ profile] lukecanwaltz88

- Bold all of the following TV shows which you've ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode of it.

Oh God, I really need to find more productive ways to spend my time. )

In other news, I was getting started on the fabric for the dress for [ profile] chaosblue when I realized that the flimsy nature of the fabric meant that in order to get it into a position so that I could adequately cut it, I need another set of hands. Guess what hubby gets to help me with later. ^_^

I also finished Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn today. Since I couldn't do what I had originally planned (cut out the pieces for the dress) I had to settle with doing something else instead. I figured that by beating the game, I could then focus on sewing and not have that little voice whispering in my ear, "Finish the game! Finish the game!" Game finished, extra features unlocked (not everything, though, still have some music to get) and I can now replay at my leisure, and not have to worry about unlocking stuff. Ha.

Further more, I'm excited at the prospect of making some new LJ icons. First and foremost, I want to make an icon of Meeko (from Pocahontas) slamming the compass against the rock with the caption "Work, damn you!" I also want to make a few Fire Emblem icons - mainly of my boys, Ike, Haar, Tibarn, Ranulf, Shinon and Soren (the last two because they're both so bitchy I love them to pieces because of it), and my girls, Nailah and Titania. Nailah was a one wolf wrecking crew (and FAST so she was able to dodge a LOT of attacks) and Titania was a tank on a horse. I actually managed to cap her stats. XD

I've also come the rather amusing realization that most people dislike Micaiah, referring to her as one of the most useless lords EVAR (and giving her the nickname Failcaiah). While I understand the sentiment (she's a mage/sage/priestess, so her HP and other stats end to be crap) I do know that with a little bit of work (and a lot of bonus experience points) she can actually become very powerful. Of course, it really doesn't help that she is auto-promoted, meaning you can't force class changes, leaving her capped out in first or second tier until the story decides to bump her up. Bastards. Of course Ike is the same way - but at least Ike's got strength, speed and HP to spare so he can actually take the damn abuse that a game lord has to put up with. (For the record, the "hero" of the Fire Emblem games are known as Lords, often because they are of nobility - princes, kings, or lords and occasionally queens or princesses. Ike is the only lord in Fire Emblem's history to not be of noble birth.) Anyway, for all of Micaiah's Mary Sue tendencies and general fail, I don't feel that she's as bad as the rest of the fandom makes her out to be, but of course only one person on my F-list even known what I'm babbling about here, so Megan, if you want to sound off, go right ahead. I'd love to know what you think.

I think that about wraps up my thoughts for the day. I'm gearing up for the holidays, and all in all trying to keep warm because it decided that it's going to be BFC outside. Oh yeah, winter has officially started. We're even supposed to have snow this weekend.

For anyone on my F-List who is participating in NaNoWriMo this year, my dear friend [ profile] princessriku made some excellent icons, and you can find them in her journal, here.

They are funny, text based, and accurate. All she asks for is credit. ^^

Also, I have started up my very own NaNo journal: [ profile] penismighter

It was supposed to be penismightier....but I made a small typo and forgot the "i" in "mightier."

If you were wondering it's a send up to this classic SNL sketch.

Aaaaaaaand....that's that.  All future NaNo related entries will be in [ profile] penismighter with occasional thoughts working their way into my standard LJ.
