I do plan to start iconing again soon. It will be season 13 of ER as soon as I can get the entire thing downloaded. Yep, I'm behind. I've had serious real life issues from health stuff to financial turmoil, but I've just recently gotten back into playing with PS and PSP. I now remember how much I truly love it. Sort of in a state of bliss when creating :-)

Unfortunately, my hard drive died around this time last year and I ended up losing all seasons of ER except for 12. So any prior seasons will have to wait. I'm not sure if I'll be doing icons of Season 14. Probably only the episodes featuring Goran Visnjic.

Also look for House and Six Feet Under icons. I already have all of Six Feet Under, and seasons 1 & 2 of House.

Just wanted to let everyone know why I've once again disappeared. This summer has been tough. Recent tests show I'm having liver problems, and my potassium and iron levels are low. I've been pretty sick, and we are currently trying to find out why.

So I won't be around for awhile. Health stuff sucks.

Just a little note to say I haven't disappeared again. A few things have been keeping me away. My old graphics card died (blah) and had to be replaced, I'm having some issues with memory in my computer as well and on top of all that I've been feeling pretty yucky from allergies and health stuff.

Good news is graphics card is replaced, memory is on the way and I'm feeling a tiny bit better. I really do hope to get some icons up soon. I figure I have all summer to work on season 13, right? ;)

Alrighty, I should probably mention where I've been for so long. Most of you already know, I have lupus as well as some other health problems. It's been one hell of a year with my health. I've also had quite a lot of drama in that world they call "real life". Nothing good, I might add. Struggling financially and under A LOT of stress right now.

That said, other things have been more important than icons and ER. Still are, but I'm trying to come back at least a bit. Still under an insane amount of stress and therefore, I'm moody. So be warned. I'm also probably a bit more opinionated and a lot more likely to speak my mind. If you don't like what I have to say then you are more than welcome to take a hike. This is, after all, my journal. :P

I do plan on making icons, although I know for a fact to start they will not be as good as my old ones and probably never as good as the ones you see in some other people's journals. It's been a long time and I've been through a hell of a lot. I don't remember all of my old techniques. I'll be doing a lot of experimenting and hopefully can come up with some that people will at least somewhat enjoy. Sometimes I prefer just plain old icons myself rather than the fancier ones you see about. So expect some fairly plain ones.

I will be doing icons of ALL season 13 characters - even if I don't particularly care for them. That means you will even be able to find Gates icons here. Yep - Gates. I can't stand the man myself, but that never stopped me from doing Clemente during season 12. I also know a lot of my old friends are roomies, and I will really try not to disappoint. I will be definitely doing quite a few Ray/Neela icons. I'm not a huge roomie fan myself, but I do like the pair and agree that these two belong together. :)

And of course, Luby.. lots and lots of Luby. As I said, my icons may not compare to others, but as long as at least one person out there enjoys them - that's all that matters to me. :)

Now that I'm done generally bitching, I should also say thank you to those of you who stayed friends with me even though I've been away so very long. Even more thank you's to those of you who left me messages checking on me while I've been gone. I am very sorry I didn't return those messages sooner, but I cannot express how much I appreciate them. Good friends make the icons worth making! :D

Just a few icons to get me started again. After all, it has been a long time! These are pretty plain, but I like them just the same. Hope you will too. :) More to come soon.

I'm baaackkk! The luby wedding brought me out of hiding! Not sure how quickly I'll be making more icons, but there will definitely be some. It's been almost a year though and I'm pretty rusty. You've been warned.

I've also had to downgrade to a free account. Financial problems making it pretty much impossible to keep paying for Live Journal.

Sorry all. Things are crazy right now. I'm dealing with health issues, flooding (yeah - the basement's still a mess), financial problems and a whole mess of other crapola. I don't have much time to be online anymore. Hope to be back to icon making real soon.

I have a new nephew :). He was born June 29th and is the first child of my brother and his wife.

Again, hope to be back soon.

Ok, I should go off the computer now to deal with said-flooding, but I couldn't help but notice Jenn's jensucks dungeon adventures so I had to try it out myself. I just got this...

You are in an enormous arena. The mosaic floor shows taylor hicks.
You quaff the potion marked 'LIBERTINE1977'. It tastes like luka kovac.


MMMMMMMMMMM - luka goodness!

I'll post the whole thing shortly...

Well, that was quick. Thanks, Andy :P I didn't even get a chance to worship my figurine of Ash. It's official... I suck.

I died in the Dungeon of Autumnfoxx

I was killed in a cobwebbed corridor by Andy2301 the giant spider, whilst carrying...

a Figurine of Shadow Diva, the Shield of Lovely Obsessed, the Amulet of Theresajean and 10 gold pieces.

Score: 42

I'm one of the lucky folks who lives in the eastern part of the US and was hit by terrible flooding. As most of you may already know, my basement leaks. Well right now it's a friggin swimming pool.. for real. I'm in Pennsylvania, only a few short hours from Wilkesbarrel which was slammed and is making national news, and only thirty minutes away from the Susquehanna River. The house isn't under water (thank God), but the basement is such a mess it's scary. Because of this, I will not be online for awhile. I need to try and get this mess sorted out.

I hope everyone else on the east coast is ok. I know some places have their entire homes under water, and I'm grateful it hasn't come to that here. I doubt that it will since we don't live near any creeks or streams, but we can't afford to have the basement fixed so right now it's horrible. It's a lot to deal with, and I'm trying my best. I'll be back with icons as soon as I can be.

Just a quick up-date to let you all know I've been off-line for awhile due to real life drama. I'm doing better with the migraines though so when I can get some of this other stuff settled, I'll be back with more icons. Sorry again for my absence.

Yet another batch of icons from "The Gallant Soldier..." Lots of Neela and roomies in here. Also a little of everyone else including a couple of luby I couldn't help but create. (I may never get finished iconing that scene - it was just too perfect.) More to come soon.

Ok, so it's finally summer and ER is on break. So... it's time for me to start thinking about my character series once again. Remember way back in.. err, March, I said I was going to do a series of ER icons for every character? Well, as soon as I'm finished with "The Gallant Soldier..." and "21 Guns", I will finally be doing them.

Now I am still sick and having problems so I can't guarantee I'll be as fast with them as I used to be, but I've discovered that if I work on an empty stomach, I usually don't get real sick. (Weird, I know.) So I plan on making lots of icons despite these damn migraines, and I really hope you enjoy.

Here is the list of characters I will be making icons for. If you have any new requests, please let me know. (The only ship I will not do is Carby so please don't ask.) Also please note, I can only do icons for characters from seasons 6 - 12. However, I've had a request to do some Carol/Doug icons, and I will be looking for screencaps so I can make them for her. As I don't have seasons 1 -5 myself, I can't make too many, but I'll try my best. I also do not have season 9... yet.

Also I would like to do some icons of "House" and Taylor Hicks, Clay Aiken, and "The X-Files". If I can find time, I'll try those as well. I'm starting to fall for Jesse Spencer of "House". (I have a thing for tv doctors with great hair and sexy accents... I can't help it.)

Today I absolutely couldn't stay away from the computer.. migraines or not. I've been dying to make icons, and once I got started, well, I was having tons of fun! At the moment I'm both dizzy as hell and sick to my stomach, but if I can get the nausea under control I will probably continue to make more.

Anyway here is batch # 2 from the ER episode "The Gallant Soldier...". Why this one and not the finale? Well, obviously I want to cover all episodes of season 12, but my main reason is I absolutely love iconing Neela. Parminder is such an amazing actress, and in this episode she just blew me away. So I felt the need to capture Neela's many emotions in icons. There will be plenty more from this episode and, yes, I will be making icons of the finale as well. However, right now, here you be. I'll probably be posting more over the next couple of days.

Migraines are keeping me off the computer lately. Usually my health is better in the summer, but I'm under quite a bit of stress right now. I was watching tv about a week ago and it just hit me. I've tried making icons since, but if I stare at the computer screen for any serious amount of time they get worse and then I find myself sick to my stomach and dizzy as hell. I'm going to the doctor and will hopefully get some medicine to control them. When I'm feeling better, I absolutely promise to get to work on some new icons. Right now I'm just too sick. :( However, I will be back and I will be making icons. I'm going through serious withdrawl here.

I've reuploaded the screencap zip files to YouSendIt.com for the episodes "21 Guns" and "The Gallant Hero and the Tragic Victor". They are now available for download once again.

Just to let you all know I've been busy playing The Sims 2 (I'm addicted again), and also dealing with real life crapola. That's why I haven't made a whole lot of icons. I plan on making a whole bunch from the finale and The Gallant Hero very soon, I swear. I figure I have all summer to do my character series (which I did not forget about) so I'm not too hurried. Hopefully you can all hang in there and wait. There's already tons of great icons out there so I'm not sure mine will be very in demand, but I'll do the best I can. :)

I will probably skip around between this episode and the finale rather than do them one at a time.. just to keep things interesting for myself. However, the first batch is from "The Gallant Hero". Hope you like them. :)

I finally feel like making graphics again. I apologize to everyone for my departure. Sometimes I just need a break or I burn out. This is true with everything I do, unfortunately.

Need to do some work for the_triage right now, but when I'm finished with that, I'll start doing some icons. Look for ones from "The Gallant Soldier" and "21 Guns" as well as some Taylor Hicks (the new American Idol) and Clay Aiken (I was so inspired seeing him perform on the finale.. and his new look made me want to icon him more than ever.)

Over the next few months I will also be doing "House" icons. :)

Thanks to everyone who gives me such positive feedback. I know I'm not the most talented icon maker out there, but you all make me feel like I'm doing a good job. I really appreciate your comments more than you could ever know.
