1. Reply to this post with "UNICORNS", 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 create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Icons selected by [livejournal.com profile] aadarshinah 

My IE is acting up, and so it's giving me difficulty with pics today, so I'm just going with their names until I figure out WTF is going on.

1. flansquee!
2. lesigh
3. flyboy
4. Josh victory is mine
5. Captain My Captain


1.    I picked this up from [livejournal.com profile] graphicalrum.  It's Joe Flanigan (obv.), and every fangirl (or fanboy) needs a squee icon.

2.    This is a cap from the A&E miniseries Pride and Prejudice (the only real one!).  It's Lydia Bennett, and that pose is just so perfect for a bored/exasperated sigh.  The text and flower thing were done with GIMP.

3.    I picked this one up from someone, not sure who.  It's one of the SGA promo shots with the totally hot leather jackets that they really should have kept wearing.  I use this kind of on a random basis, just when I feel like looking at the Flan.

4.    I got this from either [personal profile] scrollgirl  or [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash.  It's a quote from The West Wing, which Josh says after they get their Supreme Court nominee to agree.  It's part of a silly monologue, which also contains the lines, "Bring me the finest muffins and bagels in the land," and "It is done, and I have done it."  This is my "yay, me" icon.

5.    I got this from [livejournal.com profile] donutsweeper .  It's Jack Harkness saluting the Tenth Doctor as he's returning to Torchwood after the Year that Never Was.  That scene always got me, and this is one of my leftover TW icons, even though I'm not really in that fandom anymore.

I'm sitting here waiting for my morning class to start, and I look over to check the time on the wall clock.  My thought?  Huh, those always look the exact same no matter what classroom you go in.  I wonder if they're like, the bulk classroom-standard clock?  Maybe there's a classroom clock company.  Yes.  I clearly need caffeine.  Or something.  This building is kind of old, but I've noticed that all of them seem to be that way.  It still has an honest-to-God chalkboard and manual pencil sharpener.  And a row of coathooks along the wall.  I kid you not.  It feels like grade-school.  Almost done with classes for the summer.  I have another week.  I've registered for three classes in the fall; two history and one poli-sci. 

Has anyone seen the new movie Inception?  I really want to see it, but I kind of feel like a loser going to a movie by myself.  Waah, you guys all moved away!  Someone in my geoscience class said the movie was really good, and the previews Jen and I saw looked neat.  Nothing on the job front, sadly, but one thing at a time.

Two tests tomorrow.  Need to study tonight.

I'm feeling really nostalgic for The West Wing today.  Oh, show.  I miss your idealism, your snappy dialogue, your smart, dorky, funny, passionate characters, and your political escapism.  In honour of my favourite show ever, a quote. 

Shallick: ...right to keep and bear arms...

Toby: It doesn't really say that.

Shallick: Toby!

Toby: In fact, it doesn't say that at all.  The only way it says that at all is if you remove some words from it...

Toby: It says a well-regulated militia, being necessary for the security of the free state...the government shall not infringe.  The words 'regulated' and militia are in the first sentence.  I don't think the framers were thinking of three guys in a Dodge Durango.

Shallick: Well, you don't really know what the framers were thinking, do you?

Toby: No.  But I do know that  if you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, and Australia, you've got a population roughly the size of the United States'.  We had 32,000 gun deaths last year and they had 112.  Do you think it's because Americans are more homicidal by nature?  Or do you think it's because those guys have gun control laws?

This is old news to just about anyone who on my flist who's known me since I started this journal, but strangely, I don't think it's ever been posted here.  To avoid spamming you all, I'll just put a cut here. )

rhia_starsong: (Josh victory is mine)
Aha! I knew I had this icon sitting around here somewhere! Except, really, victory is ours. And by ours, I mean all free-thinking people of the world. Because I'd like to think that this election represents a time when we Americans took stock of our cities and towns and then our country, and looked once again to the rest of the world for advice and perspective.

And you helped us; you prayed with us as we encouraged each other to turn aside from learned patterns of divisiveness, you kept hoping at each new unfolding of our minds back out on reality, and you kept all your extremely justifiable recriminations back as we surged together in true American fashion to elect two good men to the highest offices in the land, to widen the majority in our legislature of the party that must now tackle the problems facing us while helping us heal from that divisiveness, and through it all, world, you reached out your hands in friendship to us again and merely said, "What's next?"

meme from [livejournal.com profile] nentari

Make a list of five of your favourite series (no peeking at the questions first), then answer the questions behind the cut.

1. House
2. Doctor Who
3. Torchwood
4. The West Wing
5. Numb3rs

Here are my answers )
rhia_starsong: (Default)
ok, here we go with the answers to godlet's five questions meme.

Hmm, so for you, the questions be...

1) If you could live in any historical era, when and why?

2) Besides English, what is your favorite language (and don't say you don't have one, everyone's got one)? Can you speak this language? Why's it your favorite?

3) Who shot first, Han or Greedo?

4) What would you do if you were alone in a room with G. W. Bush, and there were no cameras, no witnesses, and no reprocussions to you for what you did?

5) When was the last time you watched West Wing? Which episode(s)?


1. Ooh, that's a toughie. For instance, by "you" does it mean that I remain a 22-yr-old white American female? Or am I allowed to specify who I want to be. 'Cause that influences the decision a lot. I suppose, taking the strictest possible interpretation of the question and remaining essentially unchanged, I would live in Britain in the 1960s, because there were so many interesting things coming together then--the Beatles, the Cold War viewed at a slight remove, Elizabeth II relatively new to the throne, etc. Plus, I really love Britain. And it was an important time in Ireland, as well.

2. It might be a toss-up between Spanish and Welsh. Spanish is so pretty, and I actually have some fluency in it. Welsh is just so darn cool, though. I'm working on the fluency thing there. I suppose I feel some sort of connection to my past in Welsh, and Spanish, well, it was the first foreign language I learned, so...

3. Old or new version?

4. Eek. Well, my first instinct is to run away, in case Mark Twain is right and stupidity is contagious. But then I must bravely consider the good of my fellow Americans, and assume that this is somewhere along the campaign trail last election, and bonk him over the head until he concedes to Kerry-Edwards and agrees to get us the hell out of Iraq. In writing. On camera. With a lie detector. And dropping that horrible fake Texas accent.

5. That time I came over after work and we all watched in your room. I think you told me we last watched 'Stirred.'

December 16. When you see this, quote Leo McGarry.

Leo: The President's personal aide, they're looking at a kid. Do you have any problem with a young black man waiting on the President?
Fitz: I'm an old black man and I wait on the President.
Leo: The kid's gotta carry his bags...
Fitz: You gonna pay him a decent wage?
Leo: Yeah.
Fitz: You gonna treat him with respect in the workplace?
Leo: Yeah.
Fitz: Then what the hell should I care?
Leo: That's what I thought.
Fitz: I've got some real honest-to-God battles to fight, Leo. I don't have time for the cosmetic ones.
Leo: Thanks, Admiral. Good luck.

Well, my grandmother passed over to the other side yesterday around seven pm. She went out to the song Angel Band, which if any of you know it, was so appropriate. I'm back here in Davidson for the week; I'll leave Friday to go back for the memorial service Saturday. Godlet, if you wanna come watch some West Wing, I'm here.
rhia_starsong: (Default)
::sheepish look:: Yeah, so I found another one. This one is where when you see this on your flist, you quote Leo. So, here goes. Cookies to the first person to know which episode this is from (yes, godlet, you've seen it).

All right, shut the hell up, everybody. I’ve fired more people than you before breakfast.

ok. it's very important to know that I resisted this meme for months.
The meme is that when you see someone else answer it on your flist, you answer it with another West Wing Quote. The person on my flist couldn't pick just one, either. Hmmmn...

Donna: How many words in the Gettysburg Address?
Toby: 266.
Donna: And the Ten Commandments?
Toby: 173.
Donna: So you really wouldn't think you'd need 6,000 to discover how a plane ticket gets reimbursed.
Toby: No.
Donna: No.

Bartlet [reading Sam's words]: The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels tonight.


Those are just two of the many thousands of wonderful quotes this show has spawned. And now Supernatural is getting up there. (Jerk. Bitch.)
