Today is my First Official Sickday. Apparently, I should keep up the great Aussie Sickie tradition of nicking off to the beach, but a) the closest beach is a few hours away, and b) I really don't feel up to it. So I am updating my livejournal instead.

I said a few days ago that I was photoshopping a bunch of reminders for my sister. I'm quiet pleased with how they turned out, and since [profile] bob_ette also wanted to show them off, I thought I'd dump them up here. If nothing else, pictures of the SPN boys can always cheer up your day.

Two more under the cut )

I also made a shiny new icon. *points to icon*

OK, spent Saturday at [personal profile] necromage and [profile] pseudoskribe's place, with the rest of the gang. Mage played KH2 (awesome graphics) and I spent the day making icons.

01. 02. 03.

The rest are under here )

Phew. Got that lot out of the way

This is my hundredth entry. Plus, as of this moment, I have posted 666 comments. Huh.

Look! A header! And all it cost was twenty minutes on photoshop, 5 minutes figuring out the customisation thingy, thanks to a handy-dandy tutorial, and $25US. Yeah, that's right, I finally bit the bullet and bought a paid account. Figured the amount of time I spend on here, I probably should - and besides, I wanted more icon space. And a cool header (go check it out!)

During my morning's perusal of lj and other internet-type places, I found this link. It's an audio interview praising fanficion, but using the dubious example of Lori Jareo to do it. Blurb is under here )

Ok, I'm glad they like fanfic, it's nice to get some positive press for a change, but you think you could not praise the person who broke just about every unwritten fanfic rule there is? I thought it was an interesting article, mostly because they are praising fanfic writers for their dedication, and I get the feeling that they are just using the Jareo thing as an excuse to talk about fanfic, but still...

Remember a day or so ago, when I was saying I had all this stuff to watch? It just got worse. I went round to [profile] cloverfizz's place yesterday, and came back with the full series of Full Metal Alchemist. So far, I've only seen the first 9 episodes, but it's so cute, even with the random anime style things. Cut for anyone who hasn't seen it and wants too )

So yeah, if I've completely dropped out of sight in RL, it's only because I'm buried in a pile of DVDs. Feel free to come and join me, anytime :)

On other news, [profile] bob_ette just walked out of her bedroom, looking like a cockatoo. Seriously, any rooster would be proud of that comb :P

Made the mistake of wandering around some icon-making type places yesterday, and got all depressed at my lack of icon making ability. But then I figured, the only way to get better was to keep going, and since I feel guilty spending time making them and then not using them (I know - my brain is weird, but somehow, posting them on my lj is sufficient justification for it), I figured I'd put the next lot up anyway. Besides, some of these I'm actually moderately happy with.

So here goes - Supernatural, Battlestar Galatica, Bad Taste Bears, and a few odds and sods. Yes, I have eclectic tastes.

here be icons )

Also, does anyone know of any good Star Wars discussion comms?

Spent the majority of my time at work today trying to explain the concept of Mary Sues to people with little or no fandom experience, via email. Was probably the most interesting conversation I've had at work. I did back away from addressing the question of slash, though.

As promised, some Star Wars media for you. Icons and Wallpapers, Clone Wars and OT based.

The Icons )

The Wallpapers )

You were going to get some Supernatural and Battlestar Icons (points at userpic), but I think this post is about to sink under the weight of the images, so I'll put them up tomorrow.

Say what you will about christians, you gotta love Easter. 4 day weekend, and chocolate to boot.

To celebrate the end of the weekend, I bring you... Wallpapers. It's not chocolate, but it's the best I can do, over the internet.

Because I have yet to figure out how to do the small-image-linking-to-large-image thing, and I am still labouring under the deulsion that someone may want to use these, the full size images are under the cut. But because I don't want to overload people's internet connection, I've split these up into two posts. First up - Supernatural (Dean - 1280x854), Stargate (Sam as Repli-carter-1280x854), Dark Crystal (1024x768) and V for Vendetta (1280x854). If anyone wants different resolutions, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

Edit - Think I've fixed the size thing now. Seems that when photobucket decided to increase the max file size, it decreased mine. *sigh* Fingers crossed.

Warning - image heavy. But click anyway, you know you want too...  )

As always, opinions welcomed. Think they suck? Let me know. Think they don't suck? Let me know that too.

Star Wars wallpapers and miscellaneous icons coming tomorrow - photobucket seems to be currently unhappy with me.

OK, well if I'm going to continue on this icon making kick, I'd better start one of these.

Without further ado )

RL - I know what Wolfy did this summer )

While waiting for the guests to arrive, I decided to play with photoshop. Feeling moderately proud of myself, I then wanted to share the fruits of my labour on lj, which required me to learn how to stick pictures in a post. I think I have it sorted - I guess we'll find out :) Therefore, this entry will be a work in progress for the next few minutes (hours) until I figure out what I am doing. Be gentle with me - it's my first time :)

Photoshop Madness - Star Wars and Buffy (Giles) icons. And a wallpaper. )

Did that work? And can anyone tell me if I can make the wallpaper show up smaller?

Random Observation of the Day - I like photoshop.
