Good morning!

Sorry, LiveJournal. I know I've been mostly ignoring you recently. As a result, I've been missing actual major things going on it people's lives. So. No more. I'm going to try to start posting daily in hopes that it makes me remember to actually read my flist.

Not that I have anything really interesting to say. Let's see. A list!

* I met kiss_me_cassie yesterday. She's awesome. In case you were wondering.

* Honey Vanilla Creme CoffeeMate is gross, which in retrospect seems self-evident, but apparently I felt the need to try.

* I need new sandals. Work-appropriate, comfortable, preferably inexpensive. Ideas?

* I finally picked a new layout. Partially based on what looked good with my orange gun icon.

* If you don't know what the orange gun is about, you should read my new blog here and then join my new comm goodguysfans.

Okay. I suppose I should go to work.

Oh. THIS is the icon. Ok. I was gonna be jealous if I saw that you had an actual screencap from the promo of him holding the gun. That's what I thought the icon was about.

If you know of a good place to find icons for West Wing, I'm on the hunt for some. :)

Aha! Now it makes sense why we weren't understanding each other, since we were talking about different things. :)

Try tww_icons.

Sorry if you already know any of this, but I know you're new to LJ so I'm going to pretend you don't. :)

How icons generally work:
1. If anything is posted in an icon community or on an icon post in someone's journal, you can take it. It's polite to leave a comment on the post and to give credit in the comment line on your userpic page.
2. If you just see an icon that someone is using, check their userpic page (like this). If they credit someone else, I usually try to track it down to that person to make sure it's okay to use. If it says something like "DO NOT SNAG" (like on the orange gun one on coloneljack's page, that means you can't use it, but most other icons are up for grabs.

Hope that all makes sense and is helpful! :)

yes I noticed she marked some "do not snag" so I made sure to not save/use any of those.. but I still get nervous, haha. I'd make my own if I had access to tons of West Wing screencaps.. but I don't!

haha, yeah. I usually try to take things mostly from actual icon posts. Sometimes I'll send people messages asking if it's okay if I use things. I am so not a graphics person - the one on this comment is practically the only one I've made myself. (Oh, and a Code 58 one.)

I can make basic ones without any sort of photo editing or text. I can try to make text ones look decent, but I usually fail.

Ahh. I can do it - I've done photo editing at work for years - I just don't enjoy it, so I leave it to those who do!

Ok. I replied to this but LJ ate it. Fail. What I said was I hope your friend coloneljack doesn't mind- I credited her in the comment line- but I absolutely adore this icon because this part of that episode is like, my favorite ever.

Might not have looked there, thanks!

Yay! Even though I already know what's going on with you via Twitter, it'll be nice to have you back on LJ. Love the new layout, and the icon!
