icon contest results

con Contest Results

After considering all of the wonderful icons submitted for the contest, I have chosen the three winners.

First Place

created by c_rob

This is my favorite primarily because I had something similar in mind with concern to the animation when thinking of what I'd like for an icon dealing with this subject, that of someone typing something then correcting it. I was just too lazy to do it myself or to think of what those words should actually be. Thanks for reading my mind, Charlie.

This is my second favorite because I think the general concept is cute. Nice job. You now are responsible for two of my userpics, Shala.

Popular Vote Winner

Rob's submission to the contest was the most popular amongst the voters in the poll. I think it's clear that my f-list is comprised largely of a bunch of pottymouths. God bless y'all.

The three winners above will be receiving a month of paid LiveJournal time, which I will take care-of before week's end when I have a moment or two. The other four submissions in the contest came via a post I made in iconrequests last week.

The first two were created by malleteery_one. The "You're Mohter" icon makes me giggle and I'll probably keep that one in addition to the winners above.

The other two icons were submitted by peach_megumi.

This was fun. I might have to do it again sometime. Thanks everyone for your submissions and for taking the time to vote in the poll.

I'd still like to see a lot more participation in the the SHOW US YOUR GAMS! challenge. Then again, maybe it was a boneheaded idea.

i'm too sexy for this motel room

his afternoon, while traveling through southern Mississippi en route to Houston I discovered that the clutch on the truck needed a lot more than a simple adjustment. The clutch is completely shot. I pulled it into a shop here in Hattiesburg and discovered that I will be sitting here until Friday morning until it can be replaced. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the hotels in the area have been essentially booked non-stop since the storm, but the shop managed to find me a room for the next two nights. Sadly, it's a non-smoking room and there are no others available. Tomorrow I'll see if one is becoming vacant I can snag for the rest of my time here. You can expect to see the long-delayed second part of the Rochester Subway entry.

nother thing I decided to do since I have a lot of extra time on my hands, not to mention a great deal of privacy and wide-open space, is take some pictures of MY legs.

You are so not ready for this

I told you you weren't ready for this. Now let's see YOURS.
