lady_sarai: (Addictive as crack pie)

In this post, talk with your icons, and *only* your icons. Post early, post often, and respond to whomever you want.
lady_sarai: (Fort Williams + purple sky)
Snagged from [ profile] alphabet26, who as always, has the best memes:

1. Reply to this post telling me to pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Icons, wee! )

...I really do have issues with brevity, don't I?

I might drag out some coloring books or do some reading. I need a pick-me-up tonight, I think. (Although 27 Dresses is on HBO and that movie makes me happy. Currently James Marsden is singing and dancing to "Bennie and the Jets." Does not get better than that.)

lady_sarai: (Hold my hand and we're halfway there)
Okay. I don't really know how this happened. Mainly, I was bored and went to Getty Images for a picture of people hugging or holding hands, thinking I might make an icon for myself, and then I thought "oh, I could crop this and use it for RP." And then--well, one pretty picture led to another, and the next thing I knew I had a folder full and then I opened Photoshop and started cropping and... well.

End result is that I have 109 icons, free to good homes. All from Getty Images, credit is nice but not necessary--basically I just cropped. (There are several that are the same picture, just cropped and sized differently.

Anywho! Examples:

We will one day dock at the same port / And give rest to our weary legs )
lady_sarai: (Claire Squee!)
[ profile] alphabet26 did this meme:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

My icons are under the cut! )

And later, regarding Pushing Daisies:

LadySarai55: It is not my new fandom!!! I am just watching it!
[ profile] xenokattz: That's what they all say at first. Next thing you know, you're planting daisies
LadySarai55: I kill plants.
LadySarai55: I have a black thumb.
LadySarai55: It would be horrifying!
[ profile] xenokattz: And your image of a perfect husband becomes lobersterman!Robin who gardens on his days off
LadySarai55: .....
LadySarai55: okay, sorry, I got distracted before I saw the gardening part.
[ profile] xenokattz: LMAO
LadySarai55: you can't just spring lobsterman!Robin on me and expect coherence!
LadySarai55: don't you know me at all?!
LadySarai55: (also--is farming considered gardening?)
lady_sarai: (This is the last straw! [Ron Stoppable])
Icon Meme from [ profile] blackrosebard!

Comment on this post. I will choose seven userpics from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are using them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

She got past my force field. My impregnable force field. I... I feel so... pregnable! )

I am, indeed, verbose. =P If you want to know about any of my other icons, go ahead and ask! :)

Note: Is everyone else not getting their comment notifications? Because I'm not getting any, which I do not approve of, and I see other mentions of this phenomenon on my f-list. Just saying.
lady_sarai: (Tim/Cissie: Tim is tiny. [YJ])
So what have I been up to this Friday night?

I made a masterpost of my fanfic, because it seemed like a handy thing to do. Organized by fandom. Hee. (I have more than I thought I did, actually.)

Shockingly, the most prolific fandom? DC. Considering I only started dipping my toes in back in February of this year? Yeah, I'm surprised too.

Although, the amount of unfinished, unposted fic [ profile] zoe_chan and I have? Obscene. Just wait.

Oh, my shiny almost-new fandom. I ♥ you.

Speaking of DC, I made some icons--just cropping, but. Have some.

All from Young Justice.

Yes, I know, they're all Tim and Cissie. I blame [ profile] zoe_chan. ;) (Although I really should take half the blame.)

Here, have a Bart:

Edit: Oh! Oh! I forgot! I was all productive and home-improvementish today!! =D

The banister (or railing, excuse me Home Depot employee who didn't know what a banister was) in our stairs fell down--fortunately while my brother was using it, not my mom. So today I removed all FIFTEEN screws from the wall, where they were stuck. And spackled the holes. Go me! (One of them was a big hole, will have to maybe do another coat.)

Also, I replaced the hinges on the cupboard doors under the sink.

In all, I unscrewed 28 screws and put in 16--which means I spent almost three hours wrestling with 44 screws, never mind the spackling.

I feel all handy. But my arms are DEAD and an electric screwdriver would have been nice. =P
lady_sarai: (Bart can kill you with his *brain.*)
Oh, I am so braindead. I taught all day and went straight from school to an interview and gah. My brain.

Got another one tomorrow morning, too, and that means the kids have a sub and oh, not necessarily looking forward to what I'll find.

I think I'll play with the icon meme everyone and their uncle is playing!!

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, what significance does it have.

Totally cheating and going with every 5th even if I do have 70 uploaded. ;)

Icons, icons, everywhere! )

And a bonus:
Vikings discovered America, which I gather is a quote from a Buffy episode although I don't remember it as such. It's more that I saw this, flailed massively and needed it. Because, being half Norwegian, I've always grumbled about Columbus Day. Columbus did not discover America, he made a mistake and got lucky. LEIF ERIKSON, anyone?

Pardon my rant. ;) This icon makes me happy.

And I feel it's worth noting that I'm using my very favoritest Bart icon for this post. Oh, BART. (And I sometimes think that I can kill people with MY brain, as well.)
lady_sarai: (Kon's soul)
I discovered this song thanks to [ profile] lunatunes and I can NOT stop listening to it. Guh.

The Downeaster "Alexa" by Billy Joel.

Like all the locals here I've had to sell my home
Too proud to leave I work my fingers to the bone
So I could own my Downeaster "Alexa"
And I go where the ocean is deep
There are giants out there in the canyons
And a good captain can't fall asleep

I got bills to pay and children who need clothes
I know there's fish out there, but where God only knows
They say these waters aren't what they used to be
But I got people back on land who count on me

So if you see my Downeaster "Alexa"
And if you work with the rod and the reel
Tell my wife I am trolling Atlantis
And I still have my hands on the wheel

Just... GUH. I can't live in Maine and not appreciate this song. For goodness sake, I pay the extra $15 for the lobster license plate because the money goes to the lobstering/fishing industry. It has been said more than once that what I need is to find me a lobsterman.

You know how some people romanticize farmers and farm life? Must be a side-effect of living in Maine, but I think I do that with fishing/lobstering/island life. That's not to say I don't understand just how HARD a life it is. Maybe that's part of it.

I don't know, but this song is ten kinds of GORGEOUS and kind of heartbreaking.

So, on that theme, some other songs I can't stop listening to this week )

And I made some icons that I figured I may as well upload and let you nab if you like--it was mainly just cropping, so if you want to change them, go ahead. Then show me. ;)

1. 2. 3.
Two more Kon icons, and then some more Roy and Lian icons )

And the continuing saga of The Tree.

Turns out that not only were the THREE trees all ONE tree, but the trunk? TOTALLY on the neighbor's lawn.

We're not holding our breath for him to come over and offer to help pay for the removal, though. Thank goodness for homeowner's insurance, I guess. But the fact that it only fell because the neighbor cut branches on his side? Makes us *oh* so happy.

Check out what the tree did to our house, and look how HUGE the stump is! )

And this is a total grab-bag of a post, isn't it? Something for everyone!

I like American Idol tonight; Jennifer Lopez is fun to watch with the contestants. I do NOT like Chris Richardson, though--he is no Rob Thomas. Hmph.

0_0 Although, WHOA SIMON, what he just said to Haley. I might agree with him, but WOW.

Now, to spend some quality time with Word.

ETA, 9:15: OMG I FLAIL SO DAMN MUCH!!!!!!!!! Dancing with the Stars, you totally just WON MY HEART!

DREW!!!!!! Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy and DREW!!! Oh! Oh! BEST SURPRISE EVER!
lady_sarai: (Vanilla Latte OTP)
So, I played in Photoshop this afternoon, before my computer was eaten by Satan. (It was possessed anyway, I swear!)

I have insane love for what I'm dubbing my Vanilla Latte OTP, and what [ profile] thistlerose has dubbed the HMS Vanilla Latte. Therefore, I present 3 George and Izzie icons, and 6 Alex/Addison icons. And a wallpaper. =D


georgeizzie alexaddie alexaddie

Because he was rude to you. )

And now I'm going to write, I swear.

But first, I was tagged by [ profile] thistlerose, so it's meme time. )

Okay, really done now. :)
lady_sarai: (Broody!Bruce)
There is no point to this post except to show off my Broody!Bruce icon, made for me by [ profile] aiken_4graphics.


Also, anyone feel like making me a Richard icon using this picture? )

::is angelic::

I'm shameless, if nothing else. ;) And not above begging.

lady_sarai: (Helga)
Okay, so today was okay. But!

I have found Helga Hufflepuff! =D

Thanks to [ profile] three_nails for the suggestion and terrific caps!

Julia Ormond, who played Guinevere in First Knight. I like it. She works for me.

And so, I made some icons! )

Now, am tired. =P And maybe now I can write. ;)

Also!!!! Got a phonecall and have an interview Wednesday morning at 8 for a long-term subbing job!!!!!! Eeeeek! =D
lady_sarai: (Salazar)
I only posted once today. Wow. And this post will count as tomorrow, so... huh. ;)

Everyone can (and should!) still contribute ideas for the Founders casting call!

This being said, I think I've fairly well decided on Gerard Butler as Salazar Slytherin.

Because he's sexy and he's not *quite* the Good Man that Eric Bana is. ;)

Even scruffy-looking, it works for me.

Now, the other Founders are yet to be determined. And now I want to find them so I can make icons and a header and fun manips.



Mind you, I should perhaps be WRITING about them before I start photoshopping them.

Anyway, lookit!

Salazar icons! (And Hector, just 'cause.) )

Okay, that's all I've got. Except a horrid backache I suspect comes from the insane cleaning I've been doing. Ugh, I hate getting the house appraised. =P

...I WANT to write. Why can't I seem to stop playing with photoshop long enough to do it? Now I should sleep. ::sigh::
lady_sarai: (Sunset on the water)
Oo, lookit, I made icons.


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Oo, prettiness! )
lady_sarai: (Phantom)
Uh, snagged from somewhere or other:

Comment with the name of a character or a pairing in a fandom I know (or ask me), and I will post you an instant mini-fanmix: 3-5 songs that remind me of them.

Also, from [ profile] _dundee_kisses because she made me two awesome icons (see! Lookit!):

1) Comment and I'll pick one of your LJ interests and make you an icon.
2) You have absolutely no say in what I make. Hints do not help you, mmhm.
3) If you do partake in it, please put this in your LJ so I can do the same to you.

=D Songs and icons. Can't go wrong, can you? ;)
lady_sarai: (Default)
So, made several icons a while ago, and here they are: take and credit, if you like!

1. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting 2. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

3. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting And a variation: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And just 'cause: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Now, in reference to the first two House icons (originally made for [ profile] aradiachiba and myself)... I think I want to make more. So!! Poll time! For I am not creative enough. =P ;)

[Poll #748107]
lady_sarai: (trout!)
Uh, yeah. So, I was chatting with [ profile] zoe_chan earlier today and we were discussing our love of Addison Montgomery Shepherd. So I was brilliant and said "I need an Addison icon!"

48 icons later... =P


(And I just lost this post and have to RE-DO it. >_< Ah well!)

A lot of these are variations on a theme, where I couldn't decide on text. (Or couldn't get the text to look right...) :) Feel free to take, just credit, please!


'What do McDreamy and McSteamy see in her?' 'She's McHot.' 'McYeah!' )

:) Enjoy!
lady_sarai: (Hufflepuff @ heart)
Everyone should go join [ profile] everyfiveyears right now and claim some characters. Because it looks like it'll be fun!

I've claimed Cedric Diggory, which makes me happy, because I'll finally have to write something with him in it. ;)

And the premise is great... a fic set every 5 years of a character's life. I already know what I'll do for my last one... or have an idea, anyway. ;)

Also, weeee!!!! My icon won 1st place at [ profile] theatreicontest!!

See! (I'm actually quite proud of this one, and I've been dying to show it off...)

So, I'm happy. Except it's been a fairly crappy day/night in Real Life. But what does Real Life matter? =P

My world film class was cancelled! Yippee!! I can watch LOST now!
lady_sarai: (Hufflepuff @ heart)
Well, I'm off to bed, but to make myself happy, I made a background for my computer and 2 icons.

So I'll share.

There has never been a time without unicorns. We live forever. We are as old as the sky; old as the moon... )

And now, good night.
lady_sarai: (Default)
Is it still Monday?

Damn, even by the clock it is. =P

Ah well.

Bitchy Rant. Damn the girl, anyway. )

Also, my right shoulder-blade *really* hurts. Ow. Where is a heating pad when I need it?

On the up-note, I won a TON over at the Last Unicorn icon community I belong to. They have 2 challenges every week, and I won 1st, 2nd and Mod's Choice for the image challenge and 2nd, 3rd and Mod's Choice for the Quote challenge!!

I feel awed by that.

I should make more icons! This would cheer me up.

I took Steph's "simply sleep" tylenol tonight. Hoping this knocks me out and I sleep well tonight.
lady_sarai: (HA!  (laughing The))
Yeah, so I have been a member of [ profile] ga_stillness, a Grey's Anatomy icon challenge community, for a long while. But I never entered any icons because the ones I kept voting for were so fantastic I didn't think I stood a chance.

But, on a whim, I entered this week, and...

I got second place!!!!

::leaps about in joy::


I feel good now.
