Gratuitous Icon Post [Aug. 2nd, 2010|09:03 pm]

I am not much for Gratuitous Icon Posts, but after I said the line in this icon in frustration in a private discussion, marydell made the icon, and I just have to show it off in delight.

Yay! Glad you like it.

Now if only I could actually do math...that part of my brain seems to be full of other stuff.

An icon made from a graphic rendering of an ASCII kitty is...weird.

And cool!

You're not the only one who said that line in frustration this week! (Hint: 6', size 12 feet, shopping for bridesmaid wear.)

I've been known to say it myself. (And that is indeed a splendid icon, well worth showing off.)

Though I confess my challenge is more along the lines of *not* shopping.

May I snag that? (I don't have an icon, and that one's great. ;-) )

As far as I'm concerned you can, but ask marydell, as she's the one who put in the hard work and creativity to make the thing an icon rather than a rose-colored girlish dream.

Excellent icon! (My version would probably say, "Shopping is hard -- let's edit.")

Reasonable enough, but the original Barbie quote didn't say, "Editing is hard, let's go shopping," so that's why I went the way I did.

I must now relink this for nonelvis, who is STILL annoyed by that Barbie line lo these many years later.

I like the colorful slide rules particularly.

They are from the cover of an Isaac Asimov book--"An Easy Introduction to the Slide Rule"--for extra geekiness. :)

Shopping is definitely harder than math - it involves math and logic, decision trees, supply and demand, a constant balancing of wants and needs and scarcity, strategy, and a healthy gift of dumb luck. Not for the faint of heart.
