Ahaha, one of my favorite scenes from the Gravitation anime. novatierre made this for me (that's the name Ani's going by now, right? It was youko_astarael at the time) because I was so enamoured of the scene and couldn't make icons at the time, being exceedingly new to LJ. I don't use this icon quite so much anymore, but generally when I'm really excited about something, usually something fannish.
This one is all my fault. andmydog and I (I think it was Grim?) were talking about Hakkai and Gojyo, specifically the two we were playing at the time over at sages_of_chaos and how that Gojyo was too scared to push Hakkai to tell him anything and he just let Hakkai keep everything all bottled up like a giant emo turtle. So... yes. For some reason that seemed insanely hilarious to me. Like, completely fall off my chair hilarious. I tend to use this icon for things that I'm being melodramatic about and I know it but don't care quite enough not to be melodramatic.
It's Uri, man. That should be Uri's catchphrase or something. I just use that one whenever I feel like it, honestly, ha. I think Uri might be my favorite character from Reborn.
Made this one for hold_nothing and liked it so much I kept it for myself, too. ^^; It's Boo from Megatokyo. I forget what his sign originally said. Help or something, probably. I edited that out and added the text that's there now, cause... well, he's fucking adorable. I generally use this one for cute things, because it's cute.
I... honestly can't remember where I got this icon and I'm too lazy to look at my tags to find out. Eep? Anyway, it's a quote from... I want to say Mark Hamill on the original reaction to Star Wars by critics and censers and how they were so concerned about Chewbacca being 'naked.' I use this for insanely stupid things worrying about insanely stupid things, much like the lack of wookiepants.
Ah, Hyperbole and a Half. If you haven't ever seen this blog, you should google it right now. It's amazing. And you can always tell when she posts a new entry because icons from it pop up across the intarwebz. Well, this one is mine. Hell of a time getting it to all fit, too. Had to cut up all the text and move it around and just... agh. But worth it. The uses for this icon are totally apparent, I hope? I mean, it says right there in the icon. Whenever things go epically wrong, this icon is my go-to.
Also, working Big Red Welcome tomorrow. Going to be hot and horrible, but yay overtime? Really going to need it in the coming couple months. About a week and a half till the New Orleans vacation. Janel's uber excited and I want to be excited, but... well... scary. Which it doesn't seem fair of me to be scared when I dragged Janel up here and it's not like she gets to leave in five days after meeting MY family. She's stuck here. But it's still scary. But it'll be time away from work no matter what happens. So yay.
Cosplay is... coming along. Very slowly. So very slowly. Really don't know if we'll finish any of these costumes before November, but it's kind of fun anyway. And I'm making chainmaille. How cool is that? Chainmaille! Me! Making my very own! Out of real links and everything! Also trying to work on my fics for hc_bingo but mostly failing so far. We'll see. I'll get at least one bingo if it kills me, but it's frustrating, wanting to write and not finding the time for that and rp and everything else ever and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
Man, this is a longer post than I've made in months. Damn. Um... Also watching Protect the Boss. Oh, lord, this show will be the death of me. It's cute and heartbreaking and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah it needs to get subbed faster, fersrs.
Anyway. Flist. What's up with you?
