Voyager - J/C
Wow, 2 icon posts in one day ... but as the month is running away, I needed to take time out of my cleaning to get this set done and posted. They are for round 9 of [community profile] icons10in20 and as I have been reading some Star Trek Voyager fan-fic, I decided to use that show for the post

I suddenly realised the month is getting away from me and although I have made the icons I hadn't posted them!!  So, here they are.  They were made for round 24  of monthlyinspo ... and the theme is, "opposites"

24th-May-2019 07:23 pm - Where Has The Week Gone?
James - buzz cut & name.
No photos to share, yet.

However I have got my car serviced and MOT'd (it's first), as well as doing 40 lenghts of my sponsored swim.

So good .... and bad!

Anyway, here are a couple more days of the meme ....

16 Have you ever planned what you would do in the event of a zombie apocalypse?


Simple, but true!!

17 If your house was on fire what three things would you definitely leave behind or even surreptitiously throw into the flames when no one was looking?

I used to say photos. Now I have "cloud" I do have lots of photos from 2002 ... so would lose everything pre that! However I would want Mum & Dad's wedding photo album.

My jewellery. I love jewellery, but I have Mum's and items from both Grandmas, and one of my Grandads.

As to the third item ... very hard. I have art work that both Mum & Dad made at different times. So if I can stretch it, then it would be a painting of Mum's, an embroidery Mum designed and made for me, and the sketched Dad made during the war.

As to throwing something on ... one of my brother/sister-in-laws has ne idea of my taste, so some of the things they have bought me!!
20th-May-2019 07:21 pm - I'm Back
I had an amazing trip - short, but very intense.

I will post some photos in a few days - but am only on an old lap-top typing this.

We spent Day 1 at the British & Canadian beaches, Day 2 at the American beaches, and then Day 3 inland, seeing how the battle for Normandy progressed.  I took loads of notes, and over the next few days I will write up the notes into my normal holiday journal.

Jiffy had a fun time - I have a few photos of him sleeping in various seats in the house ... and of him walking in a park


So, thought I would do a couple of days of catch-up for the meme.

14 What is your most impressive party trick?

Nothing I can think of - although I am pretty good at hiding away in a corner out of the way!!

15 Which supposedly attractive film star do you think is a bit ugly?

Dare I say??

George Clooney

Spuffy - End of days (asleep)
 If you are reading this on LJ you will know that I have been good at posting recently ... both the 365 meme, as well as entries to seasonal_spuffy

If you are reading this on DW and are at all interested, then it's all been sent over, so just go to my journal to find what I am talking about!

But, any/either way ... I won't be around for about a week.  I am going for a coach trip to The Normandy Landing Beaches.  We are only there 3 days, but travel, and sorting out Jiffy, and doing some more of my sponsored swim will account for some extra time.

So - see you on the flip side

11th-May-2019 04:40 pm - Sorry - A Boring Answer
13 Is there something you once abhorred that you now adore?

I have looked at the question and thought about the answer ... and I think it's a simple "No".

I tend to not change my mind about things, and if it's something I do dislike I tend to avoid it in future days.

Spuffy - Mine/Champion
As I said in my last post, banners are new for me, but icons are something I am happier with.  These are all made for seasonal_spuffy ... enjoy

12 What subject were you worse at at school?

LOL - on a day when I post art work, there are 2 answers to the question. My second worse subject was art. For one thing I am colourblind, which teachers found weird (in a day when our main medium was the basic 5 paint colours and a mixing palette), however, my art teacher also said that I found it impossible to draw a straight line, even using a ruler!

However, my worst subject, by far, which I actually had a teacher refuse to have me in her class I was so bad, was English.

So, yet again, I have to thank BtVS, Spike, Spuffy, and ultimately James for getting me writing, yes my first way to LJ was in writing an alternate end to BtVS, and ... as they say ... the rest is history. Sorry, Miss Bodmin, but I do enjoy writing (even if it's ages since I have done any.

Yep, English and Art teachers go and look at my 2 other journals, d4s_icons and d4s_fic
10th-May-2019 11:46 am - Some Spuffy Banners
Spuffy - Burning Hands (animated)
I have only ever attempted a banner once, and wasn't happy.  However I decided I would give it a go for this seasons entry into seasonal_spuffy ... so hope you find them OK.  As I transferred them to LJ I could see mistakes, but am out of time, so sorry about those ... Enjoy

Peep, if you dareCollapse )

I would like to thank the Mods for all their hard work, again ... and also for all the other contributors who share the Spuffy Love ... long may it continue

Tea + Hope
11 Do you prefer coffee or aeroplanes? If you had to choose to eradicate one of the two from all human history which would go?

Well I am a tea drinker, who loves travelling ... so think that's an easy question ... "Goodbye Coffee"
6th-May-2019 05:30 pm - Just Proving How "Normal" I Am
Sanity - overated!
10 Which children's story, song or TV programme do you think is most fundamentally flawed, plot-wise?

No, none of them at all!

They are all true stories ... all well written, and totally believable.

For any who question this statement, just look at this -

.. or this, both shows I grew up watching, and showing how true to life kids TV was in those days ... although I can't speak for what's on now!

James - actoring theories
8 When you are watching films do you Google the actors to find out if they are still alive and/or what else they have been in?

Since having a lap-top I tend to often head to the Wikepedia page of the film ... and then often look at the links as well - so, yes, I do.  However until I had to answer this question I hadn't realised how often I did it!!

B7 - Going to live forever
7 If you were guaranteed that you would be unkillable, indestructible and uninjurable for the next ten years, but you would die once the decade was up, would you go for it?

No ... as my icon states, I plan to live forever ... I haven't annoyed my brothers enough yet!!

Although I suppose if you had those 10 years I could sell the house and travel ... spending my nephew's inheritance!

6 What is your favourite keyboard shortcut?

I do like the Ctrl C & Ctrl V ...  Copy & Paste

The only trouble is, the main computer programme that is being used at present at the hospital doesn't let it work ... so frustrating!
