It can't be Monday again - can it? Apparently it is.

This time I am sharing an icon made by eyesthatslay. I have quite a few icons made by her, both in use and ones I haven't used yet and her icons were some of the first I came across that were available for use by any LJ user. It's a simple icon, but a lovely one.



Buffy is one of my favourite TV shows (in fact I have recently embarked on a rewatch of the entire series) and Rupert Giles is my favourite character. For me this sums him up perfectly as the 'British librarian surround by books'. He looks so perfectly British, so mild and well mannered, almost so easily shockable. But what lies behind that mind-mannered-British librarian is a will of steal, a level of darkness and knowledge of evil few of us could ever even dream of touching.

A few mornings ago, the Classic FM presenter (Tim Lihoreau) mentioned he had read that people who drink their coffee black without sugar are:

- Introverts
- Winter people
- Dog people
- Morning people
- People who aren't fond of change

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Guess how I take (and have always taken) my coffee *g*

I missed last week's IPP but hey, who's counting *g*

This time I am sharing an icon that I didn't make myself. It was made by the late probodie, a lovely lady whom I'm sure many Pros fans will remember. Zoe was a lovely lady, always helpful and multi-talented as she wrote as well as producing graphics. She is still missed.



The picture from which the icon has been made is a lovely one as Ray & Bodie gaze adoring at one another; it's a photo made for using in graphic making. And I think Zoe's choice of wording is spot on for the icon as is the colourisation.

Today is apparently 'Teddy Bear Day'. Thus, as I love teddy bears and have a nice collection of them, I thought it would be appropriate to choose a teddy bear icon for today.

I have chosen another icon I made myself. As with my first IPP icon, it is an icon from my 'early days' of icon making.



This one I didn't do anything more than resize the picture and put a suitable colour border around it. I found the picture when browsing the web for pictures of teddy bears and this one appealed to me because of it's simplicity and the fact it looks like a 'real' teddy bear - the type I love to own. He looks very soft & cuddlesome.

We've done books, albums, film posters, pictures with words, so I thought 'why not quotes'? I'm sure we all have quotes from our favourite TV shows, films, authors, philosophers, actors/actresses, family members, etc. Why not share them? To that end I am starting a 'Once a week quote post meme'.

The quote can be a few words or a longer piece of dialogue. It's entirely up to you. It can be done as a picture or typed out. Again, it's entirely up to you. It would be nice and useful if the source of the quote was included, so we all know from where it came.

As with the other above mentioned weekly things, I won't make any explanation about the quote (other than give it's source) I shall just post the quote.

Please feel free to join in, should you wish to, it would be lovely to see what quotes other people fine interesting and fun and share-worthy.

This week's quote is:

Jim Hacker: Bernard, Humphrey should have seen this coming and warned me.
Bernard Woolley: I don't think Sir Humphrey understands economics, Prime Minister; he did read Classics, you know.
Jim Hacker: What about Sir Frank? He's head of the Treasury!
Bernard Woolley: Well I'm afraid he's at an even greater disadvantage in understanding economics: he's an economist.

I saw this on paris7am's journal (Paris saw it on byslantedlight's journal) and I thought I might give it a go.

The Icon Posting Project was described by byslantedlight as: 'A post for every icon I've got on LJ! I'll use the icon, add it to my post, and write a bit about it and where it came from.'

Like Paris I shall add a few caveats to my 'project'.
- Firstly, I can't imagine for a moment I will use all of my icons as currently I have 456 (out of a possible 459). What can I say? I'm an icon addict *g* I don't want to bore people rigid, plus even if I posted an icon a day, it would still take me over a year to use them all. My current cunning plan is to share one icon from each category and/or pairing/fandom to begin with and then see how I go.
- Secondly, I have no idea which of my icons is my oldest; I know they appear on the 'manage user pics' page in the order in which I uploaded them. But I have in the past had a complete icon clear out and a re-upload.
- Thirdly, I don't know if the IPP is meant to be just your own icons, but I shall be using a mixture of mine and other people's, some of which were made for me and some of which I have snaggled.
- Fourthly, I am going to make it a weekly thing.

That's enough waffle; on with this weeks' icon.



This is one of the earliest icons I made for myself. It was also one of the first which I used text for. I had never experimented with any kind of photomanipulation until I discovered fandom and my early attempts show that. They were also made on a very old Microsoft's own photomanip program (PhotoDraw) and the quality of the finished results aren't that good. But we all have to experiment and learn. In all honesty, my later attempts aren't particularly good either (not when compared with true icon makers) but I had/have fun and that's what matters. 

I came across the picture I have used when browsing the web and immediately the word 'Ooops' came into my head as the dog had 'that' look that every dog owner will know. So I made it. I do remember it took quite a long time to do, even though all I did was crop the picture and add the words. It is quite a useful icon to use on any post that needs such a response. I don't get to use it that often (which is a good thing for more than one reason) but it sums things up nicely.

Day 30: Music related



Music



Finally, I have reached the end of this picture meme.

It's taken me a lot longer than I had originally intended, but that doesn't matter. What matters is I thoroughly enjoyed doing it - even if it was jolly challenging at times when it came to making decisions about what picture to use. I hope you have all enjoyed the pictures.

I said at one point I might do it again as I had so many gorgeous pictures I'd like to share. I still might do that, even if I tweak it a tad and see if I can make it more 'personal', use more of my own photos and ones that are related to the  areas I live/have lived in. Obviously, that wouldn't be possible for every question, but I could certainly manage quite a few. We'll see.

Anyway, for the final picture I have again gone for simplicity.

Day 29: Book related



Book



How on earth does one choose just one book related picture? It's just so very difficult - I had thought it would be one of the more straight-forward questions, but no.

After much deliberation and changing my mind multiple times, I decided to go with something a little different: a snow sculpture depicting Moby Dick (it is not, I must confess, a book I have read). I thought it was so very, very clever. To be able to do something like this must take an amazing amount of talent.

As an aside, I have just discovered there is a book on Snow Sculpting and Ice Carving (the version available in the UK doesn't have such a pretty cover *g*).

Day 23: Garden bird



Robin



I love garden birds and there are so many wonderful ones, we get quite a few different ones in our garden. Thus trying to decide which of the many garden birds I love to chose for this question was quite a tough one. Even when I decided to go with my favourite garden bird: the robin, the choice was still difficult as I had to decide which picture to go with.

As to my mind the robin is at its most beautiful in a winter setting due to its colouring (not to mention the fact I love winter pictures) I have gone with a robin in winter picture and I thought this one was a particularly splendid picture

Day 22: Mythological animal



Pegasus



I don't have many pictures of mythological animals so my choice was limited and even after doing a quick Google I decided this was the picture I was happiest with. A very simple picture of Pegasus.
