Much as I'd like to live in Santa Barbara again, tonight I appreciated the low level of light pollution around here. I got to hang out on the deck for a while and watch the Perseid meteor shower. I saw around a dozen, one of which just blazed.
★Comment on this post and I will choose four icons for you to talk about in a post of your own. I got mine from velocigrandma
and more from hinkydoodle
That one, like many of my icons, was made by the lovely ancarett
. It's my reminiscing icon, whenever I think back on something that matters to me.
It was Battlestar Galactica that brought me to LJ in the first place, and of course Bill Adama is one of my favorite characters on the show. I rolled my eyes when I learned they were remaking BSG ... until I spotted Edward James Olmos' name on the cast list. As for this particular pose, Bill is sparring with his son Lee, so both Olmos and Bamber got to show off their guns.
I have several icons featuring quotes from one of my favorite authors, Lois McMaster Bujold. She's one of the most quotable writers I've ever read, and I kinda like this one as a motto.
Learned Kitteh! I found someone who had several icons that amused the heck out of me, so I asked permission and snabbled them. I use it when Making Pronouncements.
This pic is actually me, myself and I at age six or seven. I was on a camping trip with my family and a bunch of Girl Scouts at Morro Bay during the monarch migration, and someone got this picture when a butterfly sat on my arm. I could sit very quietly for a wee one.
This one came from the same snabbling session as Learned Kitteh. Don't we all have those days where we lose the plot? I sure do.
Ah yes, my smug icon. The gentleman is Marcus Cole from Babylon 5, played by Jason Carter. I ask you, who wouldn't be smug with hair like that?
Awwww, Bill and Laura's first kiss! Or, y'know, Bill and Nuria. >_> Yet another of my myriad BSG icons. <3
