We went for lunch at Pizza Express on Friday - the atmosphere's not actually as nice during the day as it is in the evening, too many wee children, but we still had a nice lunch :) After that we headed back up to the house via Sainbury's as I'd failed to find some of the food I needed on Thursday - and not long after we got home marble and pyc arrived. J went off out to karate, and the rest of us sat and played push-the-button-to-the-music games (for pyc's benefit) - first VibRibbon, which we got Justin addicted to (much to sagima's disgust). Oh, yeah, Justin came and hung around till sagima got out of work. Then Amplitude, which we got pyc addicted to, although marble didn't seem quite as disgusted.

Later we went out to Furry, which was fun :) We didn't dance till about 2am, but then we danced till the end of the night - Ed played several 'classic Furry' songs in a row, so we just had to keep dancing :) On the way home afterwards we had to go via a kebab shop for pyc (though we all ate, but it was still her fault :P ) ... having goggled at the rhino with the denim gas mask on (someone took a photo, I think, but it wasn't me) and subsequently goggling at the pieces of car next to the park railings.

Slightly too much to drink meant somewhat hungover to start with on Saturday, but we had bread & cheese & spicy sausage for lunch and life was made happy once more :) We wandered round town a little (someone had put the rhino back upright), mostly via Maplins for marble, collapsed in Vagabonds with coffees of various degress of sweetness before succumbing to the lure of Amplitude again. Once pyc & marble had left J & I kinda collapsed ... tooooo tired.

Yesterday I mostly vegetated infront of the computer - reading my way back through some of limyaael's rants, mostly. I did do the last icons for the current 100contest competition and managed to enter them by the deadline, but voting hasn't materialised yet. Nor have the winners from the last contest - they weren't me though. I entered:

bag icon sepia face icon 1

But I did quite a few others too:



icon1 shoe icon icon3 icon4 icon7 which I nearly entered icon8 icon 9 which is far too large for an icon



iconartistic also closed voting over the weekend, winners here. The theme was african art and I entered:

secrets icon africa icon

I also made another one, but I didn't like it as much as those two:

other africa icon

This week will have fewer icons - 100contest isn't doing a contest, randomchallenge seems a little more sporadic than the rest, so likely won't have a contest and the iconstillness hasn't set a new one yet, either - though that'll likely happen today, along with close of voting (god my icon sucks in that one). But I need to find suitable pics of marble and pyc as I have ideas about doctoring them :) I'm pretty sure we'll have something that'll do ;)

raaah that is so random

I opted not to post them late last night, as I'm knackered, and I'm doing a little something for members who entered. *grin* Two last minute</strike>second entrants, only one of which was anticipated (yours) means I'm one behind. However, voting will be going up this afternoon, and my next challenge will be posted as normal.

I'll probably offer to do the banners for retrodefect's last challenge - she's a bit BLEH with lj at the moment I think!

What tools do you use for making icons?

Just The Gimp.

Yes, I shall take blame for VibRibbon and the Kebab shop. After all, I did get hooked to the game and I did get fed. But what's this about doctoring pics of marble and me?? I thought we were only going to doctor pics of marble! :)

Margaretpling on September 6th, 2005 06:25 am (UTC)
Yeah? That wasn't what I thought ... ;) Yours was actually the easy one, I've not got one of marble that I'm happy with yet :)

Eep! Scheming pling! What? You mean you've already started doctoring a photo of me? Where'd you get it? I don't remember you taking any photos. Wah! :p
