Shu is gone for a week so I'm going to instigate the whole "Jyuu is going to earn that Rivendell elf-rep dress for Naomii on Lord of the Rings Online or else die trying".  I'm almost to Ally and then when I'm to Ally, then it's only another level until Kindred, then the pretty dress shall be MINE :insert evil laugh here:  No really, I really need to get started on that.. that just means that I get to spend an entire week in Goblin town until I get enough rep items.  It should take me a week I think.. approximately, I just need to figure out how much rep I need to collect each day.

Now I guess I will move on to subject number 2# that [personal profile] dancing_serpent tagged me with.

Icons!

Now, let's see.  I love to make icons and I find it incredibly relaxing.    Not to mention there is nothing more fufilling then to just turn out something amazingly good that just makes you go 'damn.. I have the skills".   Of course being an iconist, I also am beset with more then my fair share of FAIL.   Like icons that do not come out quite so right.    I have a few favorite resource-makers who make wonderful wonderful things that I seem to always use in my iconing, I also have my favorite crop (which is the side crop.. which leaves space for me to work around with at the side.)   And my subjects are usually reserved for muses.  Characters that I've RPed, could RP or other such things though Eshild (from the korean manhwa Princess) is my most iconed subject to date. -since I fucking love her-.   

But usually my best icons come from pictures that just smack me in the faec.  I will be browsing the internet for any little tidbits of win when I see a picture that just says "Hey, Jyuu.. wouldn't I make an AWESOME icon" and then I'll wipe the drool off my face and go.. "yes....."  then I save it for future molestations of the photoshop kind (which sometimes I barely peek into.. -don't ask how many Macross Frontier icons I STILL have left to do :sigh: )

Okay, I'm done now.  I seriously need to take a bath, that Amanda Quick book won't read itself and I have a whole week to enjoy such luxuries as long leisurely soaks (before Shu comes back and our time is once again monopolized by anime and RPing)

God damn it, just got a call saying there's going to be a house showing tomorrow at 12:30. Being on night shift, that is the kiss of death for me.

F-list!

I need more music. So recommend artists to me via comments (and if you can, recommend songs from those same artists). That way on my days off I can troll bittorrrent and actually get some music that I seriously want to listen to! Also within the next couple of days, I'm going to post five songs which I associate with five fandom characters. The list may be pretty random, but it'll be out there.

I'm going to go put on my make-up, pack my lunch and then head on to work for the night. And when I get home, I'm not allowed to be on the internet, I am going STRAIGHT to sleep so that I can wake up at noon.
