I did not know this but Charm City Cakes sells more than just t-shirts and beanies, they also have drumsticks with the bakery's logo. ZOMG it would be super awesome for the friends who love Food Network AND own the Rock Band drum controller.
After seeing ziggybecket's awesome Chinese New Year photos, I totally want a new qipao. I really like this one but I think it's because it looks so much like my Grandmother's when I see pictures of her from the seventies. And this one looks a lot like my prom dress. Shhhh! I know I already have a gorgeous red qipao in my closet.
Somewhere along the line I graduated from being an eyeshadow whore to a cream eyeliner whore. I can't stop coveting this liner in Black Honey and these liners in Espresso Ink and Black Plum Ink.
The new Ace Attorney game isn't out until February 20 and I've already hit a plateau with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Fucking Temple of the Ocean King. I finished Eternal Sonata a few days ago, and I'm debating whether or not to replay it in Encore Mode to get all the remaining score pieces, and possible gaming achievements.
I am intrigued by Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I'm a total sucker for these mystery/puzzle games and it comes out 10 days before Apollo Justice which might help me savor my lawyer adventures a little longer.
Karrie's picked up on a cute meme: just post a cap of your desktop.
( Read more... )
I snagged the desktop icons here and the wallpaper from this person. I really didn't like the Cowboy Bebop movie but that was a very pretty scene, and there's enough contrast for me to actually read what my icons say. I've also learned it's very hard to find desktop wallpapers for 1680x1050 screens.
Snagged from mognetcentral, who thinks of Snape in the dress when she thinks of me.
*goes into corner to be emo and hate on those meanies from high school*
eta: my google-fu is weak today, I needs my DVD screencaps
So, teapotgirl, your LiveJournal reveals...
You are... 2% unique (blame, for example, your interest in world news now polka) and 13% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy sushi). When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is simplistic.
Your overall weirdness is: 4
(The average level of weirdness is: 27.
You are weirder than 3% of other LJers.)
Find out what your weirdness level is!
Leave me an anon comment with five (5) clues about yourself. My task is to guess your identity. Please try to make the clues not *too* obscure.
What type of clues can you leave?
* What's your country of residence?
* How did we meet? On or off LJ? Through which fandom?
* What are your pairings/OTPs of choice?
* Describe one of your favorite icons.
* Describe something that recently happened to you.
* Give me the first letter of your username or nickname.
Think of something, ANYTHING.
I just want to see how many people I can't guess and realize I am a very bad friend.
In knitting news, there's a meme for the Socktoberfest participants:
When did you start making socks? Did you teach yourself or were you taught by a friend or relative? or in a class?
I was inspired by all the sock knitting going on in my knitting group, so I cast on my first pair back in October 2005, using the pattern (cuff down with heel flap) from Sally Melville's The Purl Stitch *waves at B*.
What was your first pair? How have they "held up" over time?
The saga has been recorded here. I finished them a few weeks ago and they fit fine so I'm hoping they last a long while.
What would you have done differently?
Everything except the yarn.
What yarns have you particularly enjoyed?
I really like softness and the colors of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn and the striping of the Regia yarns. Knitpicks colors are nice too but they're not as soft as the Shepherd Sock Yarn.
Do you like to crochet your socks? or knit them on DPNs, 2 circulars, or using the Magic Loop method?
I just knit them on 5 DPNs. I would like to know the Magic Loop method but I'm very content in my ways.
Which kind of heel do you prefer? (flap? or short-row?)
How many pairs have you made?
Four pairs so far though I am working on a pair right now.
eta: Damn you! DC Minimates will be resolicited at a later date.

1) Comment and I'll pick one of your LJ interests and make you an icon.
2) You have no say in what I make.
3) Put this in your journal so I can do the same. (unless you're unable to make 'em)
I don't promise good icons! ;p
