minkhollow: (it's all about the information)
So that icon meme's going around again. Got some from [personal profile] gehayi; comment if you want me to give you some to talk about.
icon babble underneath! )
minkhollow: (anthill inside)
*LJ, I don't approve of this thing where clicking on the 'x comments' link bumps you all the way to the bottom of the page, as that's usually what I click on to try to read cut text. Also, why do you keep varnish-erroring my profile?
*Parents' computer is well and truly borked; it froze on me a couple times while they were out of town, and when Mom tried booting it up this evening it whitescreened and ran a bunch of 'DEFAULT blahblahblah.' My guess: hard drive.
*Meme time part one: 1. Give me a canon (or character from a canon)

2.And I will you FIVE things that, in my opinion, make that canon super special shiny and awesome. They may be characters, crowning moments of awesome/funny/heartwarming, particularly epic music or animation, or just things that make me out and out squee every time.

*Meme time part two: Four more icons courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] misslucyjane (who also wanted info on two from the last batch).
further pixellated shenanigans )
minkhollow: (what is this i don't even)
Meme time twice over. First, a writing one:
If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.
— Alfred Hitchcock

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

And then the 'explain your icons to people' one is going around again, and I've claimed so many that I'd best do a post this time. So!
mystery pixels explained! )
minkhollow: W13: Claudia playing guitar (doesn't remind us of musetta's waltz)
(my thread)

Who can't use a little pick-me-up?
(Also this is like the only icon I use anymore. XD But it's pretty! And, well, the keywords amuse me.)
minkhollow: (meet you in the next world)
One of these days, I will have an icon for an OTP that is not completely doomed; today is not that day.
I have not seen the now-infamous flow chart, and I don't think I want to, at this point. But for what it's worth, I will show off the awesome ladies in my icons:
there are not many at all, but there are a few. )
Also, places where I have written things lately: The Doomed Ship Ficathon and the Bechdel Test ficathon.
(Also also how is it Yuletide time already.)
Still need to check out that gaming shop; still need to write more Vincenia; finally came up with a character for the brainwave of a couple weeks ago, but only one does not a story make.
minkhollow: (leap of faith)
Meme time again, this time the one with the icons. [livejournal.com profile] jediknightmuse gave me a handful to talk about, and I thought I should actually post the meme to my own journal for a change. XD
in which I talk iconses )
Copy-editing gig continues apace, and has a way of making me think. Otherwise, things aren't terribly exciting here. Far as reading goes, I'm up to The Last Olympian and still very much loving the Percy.
minkhollow: (that other otp)
Hey, an icon meme! That'll distract me from the sore throat of ick. (I so hope this is gone by Wednesday...)
I don't have enough RP icons for any one character to go that route, so: we work from my own collection. )
minkhollow: (that other otp)
So there's the thing where I'm very, very tempted by [livejournal.com profile] jossverse_bb (and might have enough of the idea fleshed out to try to run with it). And there's the thing where I'm the last person to advocate premature holiday talk? But good God I've already got [livejournal.com profile] yuletide fever.
And my shoulder hurts like a lot. Not so fun, and possibly related to the two-fisted vacuum cleaner at work. (Thing's like fifty years old, or something. And it refuses to be pushed forward. Not Fun.)
Note to self: You have a phone call to make ASAP, if you want to go to that damn concert.
And GIP, courtesy of ye olde Free-For-All. (Why are all of the icons I call OTP icons for canonically doomed pairings? XD)
minkhollow: (leap of faith)
's funny, how most of my currently available icons are text-only. (She says, as she uses one of the ones that isn't.)
In other news, a meme that's been floating around:
Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.
minkhollow: (leap of faith)
So, I have some memes to answer (courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] gehayi), and one I'm just plain picking up.
Ask me about any character that I've RP'd as and I will tell you 5 things from my own personal head canon about them.
the list of the characters )
1. Reply to this post (putting up your hand), and I will pick six 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.

the one with the icons )
Reply to this post by yelling "Words". I'll pick five words that I associate with you. Post to your journal about those words and get your friends to do the same.
the one with the words )
minkhollow: (all designed to blow our minds)
*Crystal, Dad wants to talk to you; give him a call, if you have time?
*Alphabet meme is still open!
*Two interviews in one sitting, Tuesday. I'm waiting for them to go through the rest of the interview pool, but I was the best of the best so far (and... also the first) as of the other day. XD Here's hoping.
*I know what I want in a Dr. Horrible ringtone, now: the first chorus of So They Say. Bouncy, ear-catching, and with a lovely twist at the end if it's allowed to finish. XD
*Icon meme, via [livejournal.com profile] misslucyjane:
in which I talk about my icons )
minkhollow: Sputnik: In Soviet Russia, space races YOU! (space races you!)
I think it says something that I've practically memorised the work-history portion of my resume. What it says exactly, other than 'WILL SOMEONE GIVE ME A DAMN JOB ALREADY?!', I'm not exactly sure.
Mom found some photos from the time [livejournal.com profile] sunbruiseddream and I went to the antique car parade (Crystal: Trent's in a couple of these. Do you want them/think any other of his more immediate family might?). Including one of the car with the 'Al Smith for President' and 'Repeal 18th Amendment' things on the back. It's given me a plot bunny; this may require a trip to the library sometime soon.
answer-with-icons meme, stolen from misslucyjane )
Broke 70,000 words on the year last night. At least the writer's block seems to have abated.
minkhollow: view from below a copper birch at Mount Holyoke (look! up in the sky!)
::eyes previous version of iTunes, and loading OS X update:: The things I do just to try to get Dr. Horrible from my own iTunes store account. Hopefully, this time it won't completely incapacitate Hex; that would be rather upsetting.
(I need some Dr. Horrible icons. Anyone know a good source?)
(I also need a Dr. Horrible tag, at this rate. I'll grok it. XD)
to-do list: taxes (state left), loan thing (employment agency?), extend icons, book exchange thing, Look For A Job (ongoing), write things for Quin (ongoing), write original things (also ongoing)

With apologies to Frank Zappa: So since LJ's servers are in Montana, does that mean we should be on the lookout for Frank the Goat's dental floss empire?
Mom came down with the plague last weekend; I've been fighting it since Wednesday. It's mostly gone now, but... still. Not Fun. (And Dad, I know you're feeling it too, but you're the least sick of the three of us. So don't whine at me for not having the resources to go get you milk.)
On a lighter note, ICONS:
it was one of those things that had to be done. )
Meme forthcoming, possibly.
minkhollow: view from below a copper birch at Mount Holyoke (yes we can)
...So I have a thing for icons of people pointing. I don't know why.
But if MSNBC's projections are any indication, it's a good time to unveil this one. Picture's from [livejournal.com profile] adinfinitum's picspam.
I like this hope thing.

...And can I just say how nice it is to have an election wrapped up all in one night?

Vacation's been mostly good so far. And now: Help! icons! Only from a couple of scenes, but... well. Take if you'd like; comments are lovely, credit is also lovely but not necessary.
The Exciting Adventure of Paul on the Floor and Ticket to Ride )
minkhollow: view from below a copper birch at Mount Holyoke (my name is Steven)
So [livejournal.com profile] katmaxwell gave me some icons to explain. That shall follow; if anyone wants to hear about more, comment with them. Conversely, if you want me to ask about your icons, just comment. XD
my life in pictures, sort of )
Little else to report, other than I hope my midterms don't eat me alive, and my current music gave me a plot bunny like you wouldn't believe over the weekend.
minkhollow: view from below a copper birch at Mount Holyoke (exterminate!)
And now, the previously mentioned Time Crash icons. If you feel like they need text, go ahead and add it. Credit is nice, but hardly necessary; they're just screencaps. XD
...exactly the size of Belgium. Bit undramatic, isn't it? )
minkhollow: Robert Redford pointing, from Sneakers (sometimes i don't understand myself)
Methinks it's time for a new list.
and so, one shall happen. )
So yeah. Thanks to those who've weighed in on the grad school indecision so far; I'm thinking what might end up happening is I'll apply to my short list and see how I feel from there. (And my short list doesn't want answers until February, so it'll give me something to do over J-term! XD)
Also, I think I need to make a new Hogswatch sweatshirt. My current model was too big in the first place, but now it's just ridiculous. Something to attend to over break, I guess.
minkhollow: (anthill inside)
There's nothing quite like getting out of the shower and discovering a daddy-long-legs hiding in your towel. So glad (a) there's no arachnophobia here and (b) those things aren't poisonous.
I inadvertently gave myself a plot bunny via suggesting prompts for this thing; as there's other stuff on my plate already, I probably won't get to it until after the challenge's deadline, but that won't stop me poking at it. XD
I've got a start on my packing. Not a finish... but a start's better than nothing, and means I won't be trying to juggle my packing with this weekend's masses of running around. Even though said running around sort of starts tonight; I'm having dinner with my grandparents before I take of for parts known.
Meanwhile, I have committed icons. The color scheme... probably means exactly what you think it does. XD
