Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with your picture.

Take the FM 100 Hue Test. I scored: You have perfect color vision!. Sweet :D (via [ profile] katkel)

I'm not a Harry Potter fan. Just saw the movies and really have no interest in the books. However, I kind of want the Collector's Edition of The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I like the design of the book and I'm just a packaging h0r, so I totally love the binding and the larger engraved book that goes with it.

Ugh. Rooming fiasco for October shoot. I thought I had it worked out, but apparently not. Now I'm stuck. And annoyed.

Today was [ profile] seijitataki's birthday, so after work we went to Dakota's for dinner. Came home, watched Transformers, which I totally forgot I loved lots. Then we had birthday cake. Well, birthday fruit tart. It was good :)

Okay, so I did this silly meme thing. MASH game )

amezri: (h2o ;; cleo ;; dive)
gacked from [ profile] larissa_j, who picked my six.

1) Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2) Make a post 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. Whoo!

1. anti drug ;; mcshep
[ profile] cassiejamie made this icon. It was pretty true for about a year, that all things McKay/Sheppard were my crack. I think they still are, but my attention keeps being diverted elsewhere.

2. kitcon ;; because i'm asian
From Kitchen Confidential. Seth makes some comment to Teddy (good at math.. or something? I forget now), who just snaps and spews this line. I like to use it when I'm talking about Asian-y things.

3. d'oh! ;; salsa pantsed
[ profile] thebigfatman made this for me. After... an incident. It was particularly embarrassing and stupid and the resulting explanation was salsa on my pants. Right. Yeah. *cough* So. Salsa pantsed :x

4. iharthdarth ;; i can't feel my legs
This comic make me smirk a lot. When I saw this icon, I knew it was perfect because man, do I ever feel like poor, legless Anakin often :-P

5. sga ;; mcshep ;; bears
I have a sick Build A Bear addiction. Seriously. I've just made my NINTH bear. ShepBear and RodneyBear were my two firsts and yes, they were modeled after John Sheppard and Rodney McKay. I'm a dork, I know. Actually, that reminds me, now that I have a TenBear and a RoseBear, they should be getting some iconage too...

6. amezri ;; geek code 3.12
Just an icon of my Geek Code. It needs an update, though, as now my age is wrong.

Updated Code: GFA/O d+(--) s-:- a-26 C+++$ !U P-- L E? W+++$ N o-- K? w O-- M(+ V PS+ PE Y+ PGP- t++@* 5++ X(+) R tv+(--) b+ DI+ D+ G e++ h! !r !x [decode]
