emothy: (gaku's sempai sincerity)
We went away for the week, it was fine! I bought myself two new mugs from evolution since mum keeps taking our ones to her workplace, and my favourite one appears to be wearing out now. And then a bunch of charms from Primark to make into earrings!

I was browsing all these 2010/2011 stock catalogues at work earlier; Ned had about eight or ten of them! And I saw this mask and it is so beautiful and I want it! :'(

This post is brought to you by one of my new sexy Gaku icons <3

Some stuff I made just before we moved: little charm bracelets with chocolates, and doughnut earrings.

Five pics under cut: )

And I'm just about to sort out pictures of the house so they'll be up sometime later (yeah right!). Uhm, in a couple of days, perhaps, if I get organised?

The Rules

1. Reply to this post, 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 squee.

I've never wanted to suffer adverts (or pay for my journal) and so I'm afraid the choices were limited for [livejournal.com profile] mlina picking from my icons. Although there's quite a clear divide: two K-Drama icons, two Criminal Minds icons, and two misc/artsy icons.

My default icon is three characters from the K-Drama Story of a Man looking very sharp in their lovely suits. I went into the drama wanting to see how Philip Lee's second Korean acting role turned out and came out of it with a drama I love second only to Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi (which I have no icons of ONLY because there's *too much* epicness to encompass in 100x100 pixels!). The main character of the drama is the one on the far right, Kim Shin (played by Park Yong Ha). Write-ups make it sound a lot less interesting than it is. I have a pimp post about it should anyone ever be swayed by the icon enough to want to watch it. It is after all, why I keep using it ;D

My other K-Drama icon is of the Princes of Coffee Prince. Princes only in that their service is supposed to be as good as royalty or something (Han Kyul's marketing ideas are beyond me). And after all, if you know the plot - and Coffee Prince must be one of the best known K-Dramas out there - you'll know that one of the princes is a girl anyway. She's up in front looking adorably homely (but just look at some of her photoshoots and HOT DAMN). There's also Hot Waffle Guy on the left, stupid Min Yeop up the back and sexually ambiguous Ha Rim on the right. I would have loved to have 'The Voice' Han Sung in there too, but it's another ensemble package for me. I love the relationships between the workers of the Coffee Prince shop. I suppose I should have included Manager Hong but he wasn't in the promotional pic :P

Both my CM icons are made by the same person. I think I remember not seeing a huge selection and just liking this person's style and choice of subject matter ;D I love the team for the TEAM but I love Emily best and really wanted an icon just of her.

The other one I believe is the scene with Reid showing off his science 'magic' to the girls and Hotch walks in... Ah, I have discovered a write-up of the scene:

JJ: Nothing's happening.
Reid: Shhh watch [the rocket launches, JJ and Garcia scream, and it hits Emily in the head]
Emily: Ooh ow, what was that?
Reid: Oh, I am so sorry Emily!
Garcia: Don't you recognize a rocket when you see one?
Reid: I was merely demonstrating a physics law. I didn't mean to...
Emily: Oh show me!
Reid: Turn around.
Emily: Turn around?
Reid: A magician never reaveals his secrets.
Emily: I thought you said this was physics?
Garcia: He wont show us either. Trust me, it will do you no good to argue with him.
[rocket launches and lands in front of Hotch]
Hotchner: Physics magic?
Reid: Yes, sir.
Hotchner: Reid, we talked about this.
Reid: I'm sorry, sir.
Hotchner: [smiling] You're really starting to get some distance on these things.

The way to win over the ladies of the FBI is PHYSICS MAGIC. Which Hotch can't condone as mother of the team, but finds it adorable nonetheless ;)

Now for some more abstract icons. I have to say I think all of [livejournal.com profile] tomycoffee's graphics work is beautiful and I surfed the posts for hours and hours trying to whittle down what I wanted to use for myself. I so often ended up collecting posts with flowers or scenery, nature and landscapes. But I knew I wanted an icon with books because I talk so often about reading (and writing) and it could be my icon-mascot or something. A lot of books icons are too plain, or included people which for this I specifically didn't want. I also like icons with stacks of books in them but they can be too colourful or positioned in ways I dislike, and in the end this was what I chose for the simplicity.

I love peacock feathers. It's the brightness of them, the flamboyance. To me this icon sort of represents my creative side. For the drawing and art and sewing I really don't indulge in anymore. My overdramatic nature and tendency to abuse smilies in chatspeak and comments to assure myself that people know my intentions (cheeky, sarcastic, enthusiastic), because so often in life I've been told by people that they can't tell when I'm serious and when I'm joking, whether I realise that what I say could be interpreted as hurtful. I also love colour in general and the ways colours can be combined to create different moods and themes and play with it a lot. I suppose right now it could speak a little to my jewellery making (and wearing, because especially for me earrings are my huge fashion statement. The quirkier, brighter and bolder the better).

Have been Watching:
Koshonin - completed
Long Love Letter - said to self "wth, self? When did you just stop watching this?" and picked up in the middle of episode six again. Watched the rest of six, and seven at work today during lunch break. Eight, nine, ten and eleven are going to be converted to hardsub and then to ipod ready to continue watching.
Akihabara@DEEP - picked up from the beginning of episode seven again, and watched eight too. THIS SHOW IS THE GOOD CRACK. Episode seven; ZOMBIES! Episode eight; SLUTTY MAID CAFE! Iamsoeasy.

In other news:
I put out some butterfly bag charm things at work today, and then decided to buy some to make earrings out of. There were green, purple and red/orange/purple mix, and I couldn't decide which I liked best, so I bought two of each colour. Then I showed Natalie and offered to make a pair of earrings for her, too. I also asked Sarah, who liked the charms. Now mum has decided I should make a business out of converting phone charms/bag charms/random beads and accessories into earrings. She even told me to check out selling them online. Now I have considered this before, but hundreds of people do it, and probably do it better than me. But we'll see. I'm going to make some up for now and maybe I'll post pictures and get some feedback, what do you guys think?

In MORE news:
I breathed life into [livejournal.com profile] shutupanddoeet! I posted up a set of image prompts. I plan to use it to attempt to write things I don't write often, or haven't written enough for my liking. As well as things I am more confident writing. Here's my list:

POT purgatory!verse
Peacemaker Kurogane
Criminal Minds
Nightrunner Series
Hobb!verse (Farseer, Liveship, Tawny Man)
Ace Wo Nerae
Yamada Taro Monogatari
Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi aka The Legend

Guys, if you want to take a look, please do! We created this comm originally to be for more than just us, we had competitions and everything. I'd love to see any and all fandoms that everyone on my friendslist likes represented. And maybe if we do get a few people joining in here and there we can have competitions again, and share around the prompting duties.
