Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Fanfic and icons and manips, oh my!

I can't believe what a productive day I had yesterday. I felt lousy, so I actually stayed home from work . . . I figured I'd sleep since I watched tennis all night, but instead I started playing with graphics again. Now whenever I get the urge, I've usually forgotten everything Charlie taught me. And it's frustrating as all hell.

But this time I just played around until I got annoyed. Then I 'walked away,' took a little time to do other things (like lots of screencapping), went back and tried again. And I had a blast! I even made a little Arthur kissing Arthur manip.

I also decided to write a 500-word drabble, then was inspired to write another ficlet. This is the first fan-based stuff I've written all year, and it was so much fun!

There was tennis all night again. I finally fell asleep after watching Djokovic running around without his shirt, wrapped in the Serbian flag. (No, I didn't have any good dreams that I remember . . .) I missed the men's doubles final, but I woke up in time to see Roger jump on the ground and roll around on top of Wawrinka. I knew those pictures would be all over the tennis slash communities this morning, logged on to LJ and VOILA!, even animated icons! Lovely.

I'm glad Roger got his gold. How perfect if both he and Rafa can get one . . . and I almost felt sorry for Blake, since this will be his only Olympics. I say almost because his whining about Gonzalez and his questionable sportsmanship was just another example of how petulant he can be. JB, you lost the match. Get over it.

Playing with graphics always counts as productive!

You're doing a GREAT job with the icons! That Alfred/Alfred icon ROCKS.

And your fic is always FANTASTIC. The two new ones are no exception.

That Roger slashy stuff is a hoot. (grin)

Yeah, I'm glad Roger got gold, too. And really hope Rafa does. But I'm not in the LEAST bit sorry for James Blake. He was an ASS after the match. It made me cringe to listen to him...

I think you seriously grasp web graphics and will only improve over time. Go, YOU!

What a blast you had!
Do you ever sleep??
