Dear LJ:

Yes. I realize I'm using the old version of the friends page. That's because I like it. Your new one-size-fits-all "friends feed" is fugly and non-functional.

Seriously, I tried to customize it, using the (very very limited, and boring) new colors for the header things. And it didn't work.

I might be more reconciled to this thing you're inflicting on us if I could have a banner rather than a background image. Considering the fact that a background image will be almost completely covered by content, it's friggin' useless. Let me have a pretty picture at the top and I may consider not jumping ship to DW when you make this trainwreck permanent.

In even more silly news, now that I've customized it, it's giving me the old version of the friends page and telling me that I'm using the new one. So, way to go, guys. That's awesome. Idiots.

No love,
[livejournal.com profile] agilebrit, who has two paid accounts and extra userpics on a third and will not renew if you keep up this ridiculousness. Not that you care because I am old and have been here for years, so that's apparently not the demographic you're shooting for.

In other news, I have a new icon. *points* And I really need to sit down and outline this new story. Also, I realized that Boy has a Scout thing this weekend and so going to Colorado is... problematic. *sigh*

I feel like a Bad Mommy. We've got a midnight showing. And I seriously considered (a) leaving my nine-year-old child alone while I go see it, or (b) waking him up and taking him with me. Neither of which is a viable option. But GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaah.

However, Robert's been doing interviews and photoshoots and whatnot, and he's in this month's Rolling Stone looking OMGSOHAWT. And in honor of that, I come bearing wallpaper. Also, a new OMNOMNOM icon. I debated putting text on it and decided that it speaks for itself, really.



The lyric is from "Broken" by RDJ.



Why does everyone hate on ScarJo? I think she's cute.

Snagged from the lovely and effulgent [livejournal.com profile] luxuria_oceanus.

ONE. How do you feel right now?

It's been a day.

TWO. What's your favorite pastime?


THREE. Do you consider yourself a strange person?


And the other nine questions are under the bouncing lj-cut... )

I think, for the moment, that the not!Iron Man is going to be in limbo for a bit. The submission guidelines for places that publish such lengthy works are esoteric at best and a pain in the ass at worst (seriously: pick a consistent format for all you publishing people and stick with it. I am not a typesetter, and if you're not even going to pay me for the thing, then why make it such a convoluted process?). I am not so desperate to be published that I'm going to jump through innumerable and ridiculous-to-me hoops to do so--I'll put it up here with a tip jar first, dammit. Probably make more money that way, to be honest.

What I'm going to do instead is work my hiney off on the query for the novelthing, and mention in the letter that I have a novella sequel of sorts that resolves the issue of Alex and Megan's relationship (while whumping Alex, because, hey, why should Ben have all the fun, right?).

Anyway. This day can pretty much die in a fire too, as far as I'm concerned. Nothing overtly horrid has happened yet, but the day is young, right?

*eyes icon* I really should add some blood and bruises to that. Because, yes, that's Alex and Megan. EDIT: is done, and here's the original for your perusal:

So. Yeah.

I hunted high and low for an image that I wanted to make a "sad" icon with, because sometimes I just don't have a suitable icon for whatever depressing thing has happened lately. And then I found an image that I actually already had hiding on my hard drive, and now I've got one. Go, me.



Because sometimes things happen and all we want to do is squish our stuffed lion.

Totally gankable if anyone wants the thing.

*squints*

I can't decide which one I like better:









What say ye, flist?

Ninja ETA: I made these in light of the last scenes I wrote. *evil laughter*

Another ETA: Third icon. ;)

But the Muses have gone into hiding. Again.

Therefore, I'm making graphics. Sam Merlotte wallpaper (how much did he rock in that season finale, y'all? OMG. Also, Bill, who usually bores me stiff unless Jessica's in the room). And an icon of Janni (who is played in my head by the lovely Sophina Brown) to go with the one of Ben. Which gives me three icons for this 'verse.

Narcissistic? Moi?

Janni:

She's in the dog's crate with an IV of lactated Ringer's in her leg, and I've got the raw numbers.

Her BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) level is 270. It's supposed to be between fourteen and thirty-six.

So. Yeah. If this works, I'll be amazed. But we're trying, right?

To keep my mind occupied (rather than running around like a rat in a maze), have an icon meme:

1. Comment to this entry saying 'ICONS!' and I will pick 6 of your icons.

2. Make an entry in your own journal and talk about the icons I picked!


The lovely and effulgent [livejournal.com profile] fenchurche picked these:

The artwork is from the brilliant and amazing Schlock Mercenary, by the handsome and talented hard-working [livejournal.com profile] howardtayler (if he sees this, he'll get the joke). It's one I've been known to use when I'm angry about something.


Sam Merlotte from "True Blood." He's a shapeshifter whose preferred form is a border collie on the show (a regular collie in the books). For awhile he replaced Robert Downey Jr as the guy playing Ben in my head, but then I saw the pic of Robert that I'm using for my default icon and now it's back to him. I use this one when talking about True Blood.


Sam again. I use this one when I'm really frustrated about something. This is more my "angry facepalm" than the other facepalm I have, which is more of a sad one.


A nerdy grammar quote from the movie "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang." But it's also apropos when I feel bad about something. Or when the mechanism that allows me to feel is broken and I'm benumbed by something instead. So many uses for one single icon--it multitasks!


Robert Downey Jr taking a polaroid in a weird little Volvo Promo called "The Route V50." You can watch Part One here and Part Two here--and I highly recommend you do. I have yet to show this to anyone at a Con who didn't immediately ask me to stick it on their thumb drive. I use this one when I post pictures.


You've all seen the quote "One by one, the penguins steal my sanity," right? Well, this is me. And therefore I substitute anteaters. Usually the anteaters stealing my sanity are Antubis and Flaubert, whom I have adopted as Muses. On occasion I'll use this one if something doesn't make sense. As a bonus, this one is (very) subtly animated. Watch his eyebrows.

Icon meme yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] luxuria_oceanus. Cutting the table because I'm kind like that.

MY ICONS, LET ME SHOW YOU THEM. )
HOW MANY ICONS DO YOU HAVE: 29
OUT OF HOW MANY AVAILABLE ICONS SPACES: 35
IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: Not right now.
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: Most of the time.
WHAT FANDOM DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Robert Downey, Jr, who has five of his own, two of my original things, four Iron Man, five KKBB, and two Sherlock Holmes. Obsessed? Moi?
AND THE SECOND MOST: I've got two each of True Blood, Firefly, and Chuck. Um.
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: *snerk* Alex/Megan and Tony/Pepper. One of each.
ARE YOUR ICONS MADE MOSTLY BY OTHER PEOPLE: Nope.
DO YOU MAKE ICONS: Why, yes, yes I do.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: I like them.
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Very very cool when the transitions work well.

DO THE MEME.
Coding can be found here


Except the coding on the "sexiest" icon is a little borked, there's an extra > in there that you'll need to excise.

Some of those just beg for commentary. My "animated" icon is very subtle, which is why I like it. And seriously, the "sexiest" is a no-brainer--cigarette, gun, shirtless, and he's been in a fight? Yes, please. I REALIZE THIS MAKES ME STRANGE. Really, I do.
