Icon Meme

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than twenty icons, post them all. If you have between twenty and fifty icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, and what significance it has.

I drew this one! I had to, I couldn't find any bases I really liked and I like pixel by pixel drawn animated icons because the file sizes are so small and they are so neat and clean looking.
Well.. I love my ipod. Really really love my ipod, and I think it's fair to say I'm crafty, not like the girl in the song, but in a more general makes things with her hands sort of way.
But I have a lot more then 3149 songs on my ipod now.

Fruity Oaty Bars! Umm.. does it need explaining?
Fruity Oaty Bars from Serenity.

Tapestry crochet with glow in the dark beads alien purse. That's a whole bunch of my favorite things all wrapped into one. Purse. Alien. Beads. Crochet. Glow in the Dark. I did make the purse too little to use much now with all my electronics and glasses case.

A piece of a pink doily I crocheted. My own pattern but it's just simple pineapples. I was just really thrilled at the time I could design doilies as I went and didn't need patterns anymore.

HAH! I spotted that "Espresso machine is broken" at a local Starbucks counter in a store, and I had to get a picture. I don't like Starbucks. Not because they are evil McCoffee, but because the coffee is burnt. And not amount of caramel is covering that burnt bitter taste. Evil coffee I could understand, and might even support their right to be evil in America with our laws about capitalism and all that, but bad coffee is inexcusable. There is no reason to ruin perfectly innocent coffee beans.
Try Brainscan Coffee or Blue Bonsai. If you order Brainscan, Alex Wrekk likes to roast to first crack, and I actually asked her to roast it a bit darker for me, and it's not as dark as my Empress Blend from Blue Bonsai, more a medium roast, but wow.. I LIKED it. For myself, and as a "Dad is coming over" coffee it's amazing since he doesn't like dark roasts, but both of us can drink it happily.

Shrink plastic skull earrings, what more needs be said? They are very light, and very big, and feel very very 80's to me.

The idea came from a conversation Mike and I had one night after having Chinese for dinner. I found a good picture to edit, and created the animated gif. Is it terribly annoying?

You know, lately, a lot of people in the DCU have been talking about Dick's butt, but that's not what stands out to me about this character. As it was put in the recent Nightwing/Hawkman special issue, If there is anyone everyone trusts, after Superman, it's Dick Grayson. Yeah, more then his mentor, more then Wonder Woman. Dick Grayson, the kid they all saw grow up, or if they are younger then him, the one they all wanted to be when they grew up. But.. that's still not completely it. He's human. Just plain jane human, and hanging out and holding his own with the capes and tights set. He's managed to break free from his "father" and incorporate Bat's code into his own without losing balance. Batman is Batman all the time, and Bruce Wayne is his costume, but Dick is Dick all the time, even when he's being Nightwing. Hm.. it's hard for me to explain exactly why I like Dick so much, but just trust me.. Nightwing rocks, and there is a reason he's so popular with so many DCU readers.

Oh hey! Another obvious one. Feel free to snag if you like it.
Repurposing/upscaling is one of the best ways to recycle, because it doesn't change the form of the thing and cause pollution, plus the shipping costs and the pollution caused by shipping and moving products is also a big carbon drain. So before you throw your plastic bottle into the plastic recycling bin, see if you can use it as a bird feeder or loom parts or..

Pink calla. Sort of yonic, meant for posts about such things as cloth pads.

Potter's Marsh, it's a wetlands accidentally created when they built the railroad, it's got a boardwalk for wildlife viewing now.

Well.. back in a bit. Must go outside in the dark to try and find a dark messenger bag. Wish me luck.
