they're coming to take me away. haha!

*bounces around*

My brother sent me the following IM last night:
"we have a laser pointer and we were messsing around with drunk poeple pointing it around their feet one kid yells out SNIPER! and starts running away lol"

I think that sums up the extent of Spring Weekend at UCONN. Lots of drunk people. Lots of stupid shenanigans. I need to remember to recommend that he climb the North Parking Garage to look out over the masses and chaos.

Before I left for work I was going to post about how I got my shipping confirmation for the wig I ordered. But then I walked outside to leave and there was my nice package from China containing one wig for me! That was... a lot quicker than I was led to expect. I have Monday off so I think I will take the early afternoon to go to Jo-ann's for the rest of the fabric I need. Pictures of the wig will be... maybe tomorrow, depending on when I'm back from work. The plastic is very crinkly and as it is now just about 2am.. I don't want to be making tons of noise.

OMG FMA. I did my real-time rambling.. but I won't post it tonight. I just need a second to say OMG NINA IS IN THE PREVIEW FOR THIS WEEK AND I AM JUST NOT EMOTIONALLY PREPARED FOR THIS.

Oh a calmer note, signed up for another icon meme.

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five 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 - allegedly - create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.


1.
[ppl] paramore. hayley with glasses
Hayley is the lead singer of Paramore, which is a band I like. (although I haven't listened to them in a while now.) I liked that hair color on her and she is making a funny face that made me giggle. Basically it's just a good icon to use when I'm feeling a bit silly!

2.
[wall-e] wall-e. space extinguisher
I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I saw it twice in theatres and cried both times. The other day my sister told me that when she watched it a second time, that she thought it was a bit boring. I almost cried again. The Wall-E/Eve love story is almost like a Simon and Nia sort of situation for me. They were silly cute little robots.. but the emotion was just.. THERE. And this one scene was just so much fun! So.. cute silly Wall-E it is.

[ppl] legwarmers
I want to say I found this on the egl community, being used in posts there. At the time I didn't have a lot of not-anime/fandom icons and felt I could really use a more generic one without text. Stripes also make me happy, and there are many stripes on this icon. *shrug* I tend to use it when I just need something neutral.

4.
[bunny] flying
This is actually one of my older icons remaining in rotation. Bunny is from Bunny Comic which I have loved for years. One panel comic starring 3 different colored bunnies. Sometimes it is funny, sometimes it makes you think, and sometimes it makes no sense. Everyone I link to it seems to just be confused, but I love it! The artist and creator has signed both the books he's published and in the second one he drew me a bat bunny on a banana. Anyway, this icon is text and art from one comic that I think just.. says a lot. People like to say that you can't do this or that.. and sometimes you just need to not care and do it anyway.

5.
[baru] bunny. stars
Once upon a time I downloaded a .rar file of dozens of cute little colorful icons like this. It sat on my harddrive for ages until one day I sat down and narrowed them down to three I would use. Stars are one of my favorite shapes and the poor bunny is too cute all squished like that. This is one of those icons I use when I need something textless and not fandom related. :)
Now let me know if you want me to pick 5 of yours!!
