Awkward, but friendly!

Even if it's not always good to be me, it's better than being them.


Yes, I really am this silly... ; P

Suggestions/Ideas/Requests

Hey, folks!

I have just come into quite a bit of free time and I'm looking to get back into making icons. Actually, I'd also like to learn new things (I'm a relatively inexperienced self-taught icon-maker) and possibly try my hand at making banners, wallpapers and other stuff as well.

As such, I'm totally open to suggestions and requests! We don't have to be friends or even acquaintances; anyone who's interested is more than welcome to pitch in. Give me ideas, something to work with or to work from, a starting point; suggest characters, TV shows, episodes... Any and all contributions will be most appreciated! : )

I hope justice is served!

Is anyone out there following Renato Seabra's trial? He's the Portuguese dude who murdered a man (also Portuguese) in a hotel in New York City in January 2011.

If you're not aware of the case, here's an article I just found talking about it. Be advised that it has a really sickening description of the crime scene and what this guy did to the victim. The pictures may not help either:

I just need to get some things off my chest about this case.

Surprisingly, it actually WAS a happy birthday!

So my birthday was last Monday and I decided to give myself a present: TIME OFF!

The last couple of weeks have been kinda stressful, what with studying and some last minute problems with my thesis, but on Monday I decided to put everything on hold. The day went far, far better than I'd been expecting and I decided to go all out and spend it making icons! It's my favourite way to relax and I couldn't remember the last time I'd done it, so I figured there was no time like the present. : )
I'd planned to have these up before the end of my b-day, but Photobucket started being an ass again. I've lost track of how many times I've started uploading these, only to have Photobucket freeze my laptop and force me to reboot it, thus having to start uploading the icons all over again. I think it's finally, FINALLY working now!...

Anyway, this is a multi-fandom post:
- Doctor Who (10)
- Grey's Anatomy (8)
- NCIS (42)
- Stargate Atlantis (21)
- The Vampire Diaries (46)

The standard rules/info apply:
- I don't own any of the pictures used in the making of these icons. Some came from random websites that popped up on Google Images and others came from more specific websites. See the Resources Post here.
- If you think any of the aforementioned pictures belong to you, but your name/website isn't in the resources post, let me know and I'll be more than happy to give proper credit!
- Comments and credit would be most appreciated, but neither is mandatory! (Did I mention it was my birthday, though?) ; )

Here's my first ever attempt at teasers:
    



Enjoy! : )Collapse )



YAY Friday the 13th!

Just to clarify, I love the day, not the movie(s)...

I guess some people think Friday the 13th is unlucky, but I've never had any major complaints.
This January's was a little stressful, but that had to do with rushing out the door to catch a train, not actual bad luck... And I actually remember this one time when I was in middle school (can't remember what year) and I had a math test on a Friday the 13th. The potential for bad luck was ALL there, especially considering I'd even seen a black cat out the window before I left the apartment that morning! There was no bad luck, though. I got through the day just fine and aced my test!

I've loved Fridays the 13th ever since! : )

(While we're at it, I also love black cats. I grew up watching Sailor Moon and Luna was one of my favourite characters!) : )

Some people are just wickedly brilliant!

OK, I don't care about gossip, I have nothing against Tom Cruise and/or Katie Holmes, and I think it's sad that yet another marriage ends in divorce (though I'm sure they have their reasons and I'm not at all interested in speculating about what they might be).

That said, the sheer nerdiness of this made me crack up! : )

Katie Holmes_Harry Potter LOL

This quiz is actually surprisingly accurate... 



Your Personality Is Like Acid



A bit wacky, you're very difficult to predict.

One moment you're in your own little happy universe...

And the next, you're on a bad trip to your own personal hell!



At your best: You understand the world completely, and every ordinary experience is sublime.



What people like about being around you: You say and do the craziest things. You're very entertaining.



What people dislike about being around you: You're unpredictable. Your mood swings are quite intense.



How addicted people get to you: They pretty much don't get addicted to you.

Freaking unbelievable...

Hi there! Remember me? Probably not.

I moved to a new town a couple of weeks ago (this is my third week here) and since then my laptop has been infected with a virus TWICE... I say infected with a virus because it was the same virus on both occasions. I was at least able to identify where I got it, so I can now avoid that website like the plague for all eternity. Sadly, seeing as how my brother-in-law is the only person I know who fixes computers, and I only go to my home town on the weekends, that meant I had to spend two whole weeks without a laptop or internet access. Fun times!

And whoever made that virus probably wasn't even all that smart, although he or she surely knows how to be annoying... As long as I had my laptop on, I'd get a pop-up message every minute or so (no joke!), from a "security" program I'd never heard of before, saying that my computer was infected with 20 different types of virus and malware (again, no joke!). It also said that someone was trying to remotely access my credit card information on my laptop (even though I don't have a credit card and I was already offline) and that, in order to be "adequately protected", I should purchase a license to that extremely helpful program that was warning me about said infection. Of course, in order to buy said license, I'd have to - you guessed it - INPUT MY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION! Which, you know, is always a good idea when there's someone supposedly trying to remotely access your credit card information...

Anyway, my brother-in-law got rid of the virus the first time around, but he decided a massive re-installation would be in order the second time around, so now I'm trying to get all the settings back to normal. He did manage to salvage my C: drive, though, which combined with my beloved external hard drive meant that no files were lost. Cue a major sigh of relief! And, barring any more disasters, I'm back to the virtual world, so maybe now I can start catching up with folks.

So how's everyone been?


ICON POST
Bring it on!
vc_forever
Wow, LJ really is still on the fritz... Formatting? What is that?

Aaaanyway, here it is: new icon post! I meant to have posted this yesterday, but at the very last minute I discovered a new feature in Photoshop (new for me, anyway) and ended up retouching some of the icons that were all set to be uploaded... : P

This post is multi-fandom:
- Body of Proof (29)
- Doctor Who (30)
- Smallville (24)

Usual rules/infos apply:
- I don't own any of the pictures used to make these icons. Some came from random websites that popped up on Google Images and others came from more specific websites. (See the Resources Post here)
- If you think any of the aforementioned pictures belong to you, but your name/website isn't in the resources post, let me know and I will be more than happy to give proper credit!

ICON POST

vc_forever
As it turns out, it’s Photobucket that has been freezing and crashing my laptop, not LJ. Huh! Does anyone know of any other websites where I can store my icons? Because uploading these has taken waaaay longer than it usually does, and it usually already takes a while… :S
I had originally planned to post these icons in a mega multi-fandom icon post, but my patience is already wearing thin, so I’ll post the icons I made for mcgarrygirl78 right now, and maybe I’ll post the rest later.

Normal rules/infos apply:
- I don't own any of the pictures used to make these icons. mcgarrygirl78 supplied them and I have no idea where she got them;
- If you think any of the images used here belong to you, let me know and I will be more than happy to give you proper credit;
- Since these icons were made specifically for mcgarrygirl78, anyone else interested in using them will have to ask her for permission to do so;
- Comments and credit would be much appreciated, but neither is mandatory.


Enjoy!Collapse )
