Weather / Snake / Room / Mood Icons

Weather / Snake / Room / Mood Icons
It's a beautiful day today. I finally get to gloat about the weather here to someone who actually has shittier weather! \o/


This morning, I thought there was a big rubber band on the kitchen floor and Spot was sniffing at it. I shoo'd her away to make sure she didn't eat it, because, y'know... But, no! It wasn't a rubber band, but a small grass snake! Eee! (That's "Eee!" in delight; I'm not afraid of snakes.) The snake wasn't injured at all, so I think it found its own way into the house. I picked it up by the tail, and Patti told me to put it outside. I asked if I could keep it; the reply was a resounding "NO!" I was j/k anyway. It would surely die in my care. It was about 10" long. I released it in the leaves and grass and it quickly disappeared.


I've also taken some pix of my messy, messy room. I did say that I was going to post before and after pix, but after looking at these, I may not do the before. It's so embarrassing! *blush* I'm afraid of what this might do to the local landfill capacity... :[ Oh, I'd better get going on it again. :6 "We're gonna need a bigger dustbin."


Mood Icons
Oh, also, I'm thinking of switching my mood icon set, as this little grey kitty doesn't have a lot of variety. Later, tho.

I like little grass snakes, but that's about the only kind of snake I can deal with. I think they're cute! I remember we had them in the backyard behind 10th Ave., where there's apparently a dorm now. :(

Actually, I think it was Butch who brought in that snake, because Patti saw her bring in another, bigger one unscathed a little later. I guess she doesn't like the taste, just the hunt.

The li'l snake was very cute! All swayin' side t' side, 'n' stickin' its li'l tongue out to smell me. Awww...

You know, I originally thought I was going to try and make my own mood icon set out of my Spidey pictures. My ambition left me, though. I still think it's a fun idea...but the whole process of posing Spidey, just right, and getting the camera just so...is incredibly taxing. Much more than I thought.

Still, I'll have to find motivation and finish that, some time in the near future.

I think you need a paid account to make custom moods. It's another reason I've considered getting a PA. Pay for the privilege to DIY.

Not if you host your journal on your own server! *evils*

I'm sure your weather is better than ours. Ours is crappy. Blizzard conditions for much of the day, but only 7.5 inches of snow.

I like snakes.

I always wanted to take the little foxy I use, and change it around for more mood icons. But a) I would need a paid account and b) I would need to have some skill at altering images and c) I would need to care more. Since I don't, it won't happen.

I still like the foxy, as limited as she is.

Butch evidently brought in all the snakes. A total of three we found. The second was about 2' and the third about 2½'. She's a great hunter for such a little skittish thing.

Ditto, ditto, and ditto.
