In the interest of keeping my journal up to date:
cap, captain miss america
Yesterday, I went to my mother's. We had sushi and watched Private Practice and Dirty Sexy Money together.

Private Practice was okay. It had promise, but it seemed kinda uneven and I would rather watch House or Gray's if I'm going to watch doctor shows.

Dirty Sexy Money? WAS AWESOME. It reminded me of like a completely updated version of My Man Godfrey in terms of the zany over-the-top super-rich characters, and it was a crackup a second. And the only reason we even watched it is because Billy Baldwin was one of my parents' neighbors when they lived upstate and my mom talked to him a few times about the possibility of his kids being able to go to her school and my mom really liked him and his wife. So we were like, oh, cool, he has a new show, we ought to watch it. And it was much better than I expected it would be from the ads or the title. I'm going to have to watch it again next week.

I am going to miss Ugly Betty tonight because I am going to see Obama speak! I finally got my fastpass for the rally so yay! He starts speaking at 7. The gates open at 5. So I am trying to decide when to run down there.

The day before yesterday, quizzicalsphinx killed my RPG character's adorable fake adopted child. This is a tragic tragic time for all of us. I am mostly upset because we will never get to see what it would have been like if he had married his thirteen-years-older fake-mommy/fiancee and had serious oedipal issues.

Today, I made a present for liret that is four years in the making. While I have made many, many icons for many, many people, somehow I had never remade her old, crappy James icon. This clearly means I am an insufficient friend.

Here is old, crappy James:

Here is new, hot James:

Isn't it kinda awesome when you can put two things next to each other and compare and be like, yup, I improved!?

Does anyone else want a character icon? I like making them and would be happy to make a few more. I will do original characters or characters from books, but I don't think I can manage to do realistic likenesses of real people or fake people portrayed by actors unless you don't really want them to look like the actor! Sound good? Yes? Let me know if you want one. This is because coldwriter offered free fic and pinkheartsunset offered free art, and I took both of them up on it, so I feel like I should do my part and pitch in! I don't know how many I have time to do, so I'm not going to put a limit on it-- I'm just going to do first-come, first-served.

Ooh, can I have an icon please?

Of course you can! Who do you want?

(Deleted comment)
I know! There are people who never got their icons when I started on the iconning spree.

Also, new James does not look so much like my long lost twin brother!

Oh man! YOU'RE RIGHT. Old!James totally had your mouth and nose and kinda face shape.

I should totally be taking advantage of this, shouldn't I.

Who do you want? If it's someone I don't know, just describe.

I would love to ask for an icon, but I have no idea who it would be of if I did. This is a fun idea, though! :) And your art is great.

Agreed, I really liked Dirty Sexy Money.

I never got a charrie icon :(

I'd be up for anything that you'd like to do, as long as it's either Jack or Tucker because they are my babies. Or if you have a better idea for someone else, by all means!

(Deleted comment)
Oh me please! And whichever character of mine you think you could do!

I would rather if you picked? Just because I don't know who you're more attached to these days!

You have definitely improved! The new icon looks awesome :)
If you ever feel the need, you can make an icon of any of my shiver characters. ;)

Ah, you don't need to make me anything. Your fic will probably be the last one I write (only cause I've never written Moody before and it'll be challenging and I haven't come up with an idea yet). I'll finish it before Christmas though (or I'll try to).


It's cool! It's more that I was tempted to do something nice for people because of your offer-- a kind of pay it forward, if you will! Thanks!

Aw, if I'm not waaaay too late, may I please have a character icon, too? I miss Shiver! Oh gosh, Gilly, Jack, Mala, Christopher or Conrad. HOW TO DECIDE???

I too liked Dirty Sexy Money.

All the papers were giving it bad reviews, but when I saw it had the guy from Six Feet Under and Donald Sutherland, I had to watch it.

Totally awesome show. XD

Re: I too liked Dirty Sexy Money.

I never saw Six Feet Under. But I really like Donald Sutherland too! I thought it was hilarious; I'm glad someone else liked it.
