[livejournal.com profile] minervas_eule chose these icons for me to talk about. Here is the meme:

- Reply to this post with the word ICONS! and I will pick six of your icons
- Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts
- This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

I love the text on this one. 'Compact and Portable Giant' is such an awesome way to describe Judi - she is such a powerhouse of acting, and energy, and awesome, all in this very convenient compact and portable size :D (she really is absolutely tiny, which you can see in scenes like the one in 'Mrs Henderson Presents' when Bob Hoskins puts her on top of a cupboard omg, but which isn't especially obvious when she's filling up scenes with her commanding presence).

I love Petunia - dysfunctional fictional people are a favourite of mine - and this just sums her up beautifully, I think. The Other Sister, who wasn't beautiful, or magical, and who has spent her life being regretful and bitter.

Reminds me of a wonderful time in my life, and a place I long to go back to.

by me.

Endora really does look wicked in the full version of this picture. Unfortunately, shrunk to icon size, the expression was lost, so I decided to crop it in a way that showed off Agnes' fabulous legs. They seem to convey the wickedness well enough ;).

by me

Well, sarcasm is awesome, y/y? This is LJ. We need icons like this from time to time *g*.

Because Lucius Malfoy is a sexy bastard (with the emphasis on bastard), and his long blonde hair tied back with a velvet ribbon makes me horny happy. I have a bit of a thing for long-haired men :D.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] velmaneuwirth,

I don't really know how to tell you this, but our romance is over. I think I realized it when I tripped on sesame seeds with George Bush and his wife and I saw you sit on my John F. Kennedy-statue. I'm sure you're ashamed enough to understand how awful I've felt. I'm returning the cut toenails to you, but I'll keep your photo as a memory. You should also know that I will tell the authorities about a new life as a clone.

Good luck on your short-term leave from jail,

The Letter meme: Comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. Afterwards, post this in your journal and give out some letters of your own.

[livejournal.com profile] ancientgirl gave me 'R'.

1. Rita Skeeter - bitchy, audacious, impossible. My favourite HP character and my fannish obsession.

2. Richardson, Miranda (does that count? It does if I say so, yeah?) ;) - a talented actress, a beautiful woman, eccentric and individual and blunt. Love.

3. RP - the communal writing experience. When I want to craft a scene and be in control of the situation, I write fiction. When I want to explore a character, throw her in a situation with characters written by other writers, I RP. No one who doesn't will quite understand the joy of RP. I imagine, in the 'real world', the idea of it would be enough to break most people's geek-o-meter. But I love it. So much.

4. Reading - losing myself in another world, being absorbed by letters on a page and my own imagination. It's one of the simplest pleasures out there, but also one of the best.

5. Renting movies - these days I use Quickflix, but online or off, I love browsing films and picking up random things that I'd never have thought to see at the cinema.

6. Rain - Especially storms. And especially when I don't have to go anywhere in them. I love hearing the patter against the tin roof of our carport, I love watching it fall in the pool. I love that cozy feeling of being inside when it is wet and cold outside. I love the smell of summer rain on hot concrete. I love watching lightening.

7. Ripping and uploading - I love sharing my favourite things with others who also enjoy them.

8. Rice - it's so versatile, and the best carb ever. I like it both sweet and savoury. I like that it is bland and goes well with rich sauce - and dammit, I like things on a bed of rice and not all mixed together (with the exception of risotto). I like getting the bits of plain boiled rice along with the sauce on top. Yes, there is a difference. I do not know if this makes me weird.

9. Red - one of my favourite colours. Usually in darker shades, rather than postbox.

10. Really loud music - I was trying to think of a way to get music in here, and I found it. Soft music is okay, when it's the only option. But Really Loud is the best option for almost all music, and I will turn the volume up and let it carry me away whenever I have the chance.

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] mme_giry_phan. Fun. Lol it asked me a lot of questions about how much I masturbate. I can't believe how honest I was. lol.

The two words in meme are 'me' and 'me', hence why this gratuitous time-waster is going behind a cut )

Also, sign #2 you're far too obsessed with Rita Skeeter: you don't like tequila, but you buy a tequila based cocktail simply because it is called a 'Rose Rita'. No, really. Thankfully, said cocktail is good. And you also win $18 on pokies a little later, which pays for it :D.


Dear Customers,

We close at 4:30pm on Sunday. That means I am rostered until 5. When you don't LEAVE until 5:15pm, do you even consider the fact that I want to go home? Why must you skank in the exit doors after close? Why do your children need toys 2 weeks after Christmas? What is with your overwhelming need to consume?

No love,


That is all.
featherxquill: (WTF)
Gacked from virtually everyone:

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc.

Some of these are crack pairings of doom, and some are matches made in heaven. Some are downright wrong.
