Gratuitous chatty journaling-about-my-journal post
I read in news today that paid users have been given five more icons. Five more icons, people! It's like Christmas. (Actually, it is kind of like Christmas outside, a Michigan Christmas at least -- very cold but no snow.) But I digress. I'm trying to talk about icons here. I have five more....and do you know what that means? (No it's okay, you don't have to try to guess. I'm not going to keep you in suspense. I'm going to tell you in the very next paragraph.)

It means my second place smiling icon gets to be used after all! All 16 of you who voted for it can have yourselves a little icon party now. Democracy is a beautiful thing, is it not?

Right now you're all probably wondering: "But Renniekins, what about the second-place thoughtful icon we voted for? Won't you be using that one now too?" Well... no. I mean come on, one can only take democracy so far. And really, between my thoughtful duke icon and my new somewhat-thoughtful rennie icon, I probably have more thinking-icons than I do actual thinking. (Feel free to disagree here, people....hey, stop nodding your heads!)

I haven't quite decided what the other 4 will be yet. (Suggestions are always welcome of course.) I'll definitely want to add some more Duke icons. For example, I'd like an angry frustrated icon. Maybe Duke shaking his fist. Or better yet, Duke throttling one of his coworkers! That would be satisfying. It's been a very long and rough couple of weeks at the office.

I told ya to add angry eyebrows to the frustrated icon :)

And maybe you could make an icon of Duke kicking the Windows logo.

I should look for you...

We have a library of Dukes and I could accidentally email one or more to you when I intended to be putting him in a presentation or something ;)

If you saw the wall of Dukes I had in my office in Oakland, you'd have been mighty impressed at all the things Duke gets up to! He even wears a hula skirt when he's in Hawaii! :)

Re: I should look for you...

ooh, that would be cool! I have one where I put ice skates on him, and another where he's wearing a santa hat, but that's about the limits of my artistic skills.

Duke in a hula skirt..too cute. Although I'm jealous: I wish I could go to Hawaii. I'd even wear a hula skirt if that would do the trick!

yay! I should really read the news. . . think of what I can do with 15 icons! XD

I'm going to have a little icon party, cos that's the one I voted for ;) I think. lol.

I am definitely in support of more Duke icons.

I made you an angry Duke -


Couldn't get "throttling coworker" to fit in 100x100 pixels, so I opted for an axe. Feel free to use or ignore. :)
