I went a little OTT, pt1

It started with this thought: how can I possibly leave a comment like "I'm so sorry your gerbil died, I know how painful it is to lose a pet" and look like I am not taking the piss because my icon has some vapid actor's face and a dorky quote from The Birdy Song on it. ("oooooh, with a little bit of this and a little bit of that and Shake. Your. Arse. La la la." A great wedding classic) I wanted something more neutral.

So I thought -- well, what do I like that's serious? I like deserts, mountains, sea, fish and arctic landscapes. Also cake. I do not like flowers or teddy bears.

I once should have had this conversation with my former boyfriend. He was a big, old romantic and I am really, really very much not. He would insist on buying teddy bears and flowers when he came to visit even though he was perpetually skint because he was using his degree in physics to work at a printers. I tried to tell him not to do it without sounding like an ungrateful trollop but mostly failed. I was earning about four times as much as he was at the time (though he didn't tell me this until we'd broken up. I thought the differential was about half. He always lied about his wages before that and I was hurt that he would have thought I gave a damn.)

I once almost cried when he *finally* got the message that I didn't need all that hearts and flowers nonsense and he should save his money -- he made me a mix CD and a strawberry trifle. I cannot believe that's not stitched on a sampler anywhere: "love is trifle"

I just looked up his name on the internet. He has his own website. He's incredibly talented (which I knew five years ago) and he's finally doing what he should have done instead of physics, which is a course in animation. *Very* good looking now.

I hate the internet. Feh. :::Spits on tiny, newly glowing torch and resists urge to commit seppuku via email.:::


Anyway. Moving on in all senses of the words...

I got a couple of BBC DVDs for Christmas, The Blue Planet and Life in the Freezer and, after rewatching, made some icons. I got somewhat carried away, so if anyone would like to use any of these, have at it. As always, should xsabx wish for an image in her chosen dimensions, just say the word. (Also, some still have ridiculous words on them. Cope.)
