I'm having trouble writing today. Nervous about my interview tomorrow. I did get about 5 pages done before my brain decided to shut down mid-sentence. I don't have the attention span to post icons right now, either. So. Pet peeves.

1. "Alright". It's NOT a word! "All right" is two words. This has driven me crazy for years. You don't see people write "alwrong"'s the same thing.

2. Fanfic writers who turn Vala into a charicature. She is not shallow. She is not amoral. She is interested in other things besides a quick tumble, and she CARES about people. If she was shallow and amoral, Daniel wouldn't think twice about her. At all. And just once I'd like to see a fic where she doesn't burn the meal. Just once. Not that I haven't written "Vala ruins the meal" too...but just once. Someone. Please.

3. "Alot". See #1; replace "alwrong" with "alittle".

4. Five BILLION selective color tutorials on LJ, most of which do exactly the same thing, and almost none of which provide anything other than a list of settings, no explanation of concept whatsover.

5. That is all. Thank you for your attention.

Okay, random inspiration. Alex's poem for Hope. Thanks go to [ profile] lady_draco2005 for help with the restructuring.

For someone with the username [ profile] so_out_of_ideas, I sure have a lot of plot bunnies. I got attacked by new ones this morning. So, I've decided to make a list. It's mostly for my own reference, including the plot summary stuff, as I tend to be forgetful, but feel free to look if you're bored. This encompasses WIPs as well. One shot ideas are stealable if they're not marked WIP. Follow up stories to my own fics, obviously, aren't up for grabs. (Unless I know you well enough. Just ask first.) Anything crossed out has been finished.

Under here for those who don't care )

This man deserves a round of applause, people. I hate politics in general. You'll rarely ever see me post anything political here, but I couldn't resist this.

In Limbaugh's world, "there never was a surplus" under President Clinton. AIDS "hasn't made that jump to the heterosexual community," and cutting food stamps is harmless because recipients "aren't using them." Two years ago, Limbaugh said the minimum wage was $6 or $7 an hour. Last year, he said gas was $1.29 a gallon.

So, last night my net died, came back up for a few minutes, then died again, came back, died. Then this morning it's fine again. It's like Daniel.

The weird thing was that it happened at like exactly the same time as it happened the night before. I'm sensing the typoteers...consider this my possible-vuss in case it happens tonight. I probably won't mess around with it again if it does; I'll just go to bed and wait for it to be fine in the morning. Again.

OMGOSH!!! My net randomly died last night. I was online talking to James, got up to get yogurt (Bryers blueberry fruit on the bottom, if anyone cares) got back and had no connection. Spent like two hours doing everything I knew to make it work and figured I'd have to call tech support in the morning. Seems to be working now...thank GOD...but if I suddenly disappear and no one sees me over the weekend, that would be why.

Okay, I'm just reposting this from [ profile] graculus post on [ profile] danielpix for the benefit of any community maintaners on my flist who haven't seen this...

LJ has a feed for the latest images posted publicly here and now someone has set up a community with an automatic script to scrape off any image that is posted publicly that meets LJ icon requirements and post them to that community ([ profile] iconscraper). Posts there hotlink the original source of the images.

However, you can opt out your journal, and prevent images you post publicly in your journal from being included in [ profile] iconscraper and similar scripts that are scraping from the latest-img LJ feature. All you have to do is opt out of the latest-img thing. Make sure you're logged into LJ as your journal. Go to the Admin Console, input the following:

set latest_optout yes

and click on the 'execute' button.

If you are also a community maintainer, you can do the same to protect the members of your communities. To protect a community, go to the admin console link above and type the following:

set for communityname latest_optout yes

and click on the 'execute' button.

If you maintain more than one community, you will need to do this for each community, replacing communityname each time.

[ profile] aruna7, by the time you see this, I will have opted out for [ profile] shipper_asylum

Oh...addendum... I don't really care who uses my icons. They're a dime a dozen; I can always make more anyway. So big whoop. I do know other people don't feel that way, but it's my opinion. I would, however, prefer not to have my bandwith wasted by people who have nothing better to do than see if they can. So...

Help. I apparently have to make Adama icons this weekend or else I will never get that Nickelback song out of my head. Can anyone give me some recommendations of what eps to use? I've missed chunks of both seasons, so I kinda only have vague ideas of the scenes I could use. Icon text I have in mind atm is like "hero" "the old man", song lyrics, or "faith in you". I'd like to do some with him and Tigh, some alone, and some with Lee or Kara. Nothing shippy this time.

Whee! Anyone rememeber doing this with crayons when you were a kid?

Take a bunch of crayons. Make blocks or stripes of various sizes and colors until you fill the page. Take a black crayon. (Preferably the big fat baby sized ones, because it's easier) Cover the whole page. Then take a pair of safety scissors and scrape off bits of the black coating to make a picture.

Well, I recommend doing it in your image program. Takes far less effort and makes no mess to clean up after. Take this texture (by me) or any one you want.

Add a new layer and fill black.

Now take your eraser and whatever brush tips you feel like using and go to town.

Here's mine!

Feel free to snag as a wallpaper or texture or whatever you want. It's neat if you set it to screen and erase the bits you don't want.

I have none. :( Need some. Mainly for Rediscovered Hearts. Once I get done with what I'm doing, all I need is the apartment thing, the wedding, and one final closing story to finish the series. Of course THIS is when the muse goes on vacation.

On a brighter note, today is my mom's birthday. Yay. Happy Birthday, Mom!

Icons and fic sometime over the weekend. I'm too tired now, but couldn't resist this.

Stolen from [Bad username or site: @].


We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found
out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I
want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I
bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother
because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system
grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive
partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to
turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up
afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a
fag everyday
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother
that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a
transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful,
tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not
let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken
away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever
had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before
graduating high school.

I am the woman who died when the EMTs stopped treating me as soon as
they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much
better person if I didnt have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't
believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

I am the person ashamed to tell my own friends im a lesbian, because
they constantly make fun of them.

I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to
die because two straight men wanted to "teach me a lesson"

But I think it is. A couple of people have commented on [ profile] daniel_vala to say that they're interested in my complete D/V playlist, so here it is. Some are related to my fic, so folks may not get how they relate to Daniel and Vala, but this is the COMPLETE list. Also, be warned. I am a country fan. If you aren't, you're not going to get a lot of these anyway. I'm sure it will get longer since I seem to find more every week, but here's my current DV play list.

Under Here because it's long )

So not in the mood to do art today, either. I might work on some fic later, but it's been a long day in the real world, so...yeah. I'd like to thank my LJ friends for reminding me of how much time can be utterly wasted taking quizzes! You guys rock!
