stranger to the sun, you've seen the light

So yesterday, I told you I was sick, right?  It must be an Irish cold, since I started it feeling it the day I left Ireland.  Irish colds are weird!  I'm sniffly, but I'm not stuffed up!  My head hurts, and I feel so, so tired, and last night I kept BURPING!!  Man, Irish cold!  Burping??

So yeah, yesterday I continued to feel worser and worser.  I took a nap during lunch, but that did the opposite of helping, and for most of the afternoon I was convinced that I was dying.  I went home and took a four hour nap, and then sat dazedly on my couch and watched some Bolympics, and then fell asleep.  I told myself that if I felt worse the next morning I would stay home from work, and I was convinced that I would, but dammit, this morning I felt better!  I mean I suppose I'm happy that I'm getting better already, but I was already looking forward to sleeping late and watching Star Trek.  Oh well.

So a few weeks ago, I decided that I wanted a Kirk icon for LiveJournal.  I went to this site that has screencaps from TOS episodes, and started saving a bunch, and when I looked at my collection, I realized that I had a few beauties.  I mean, this is William Shatner here, renowned for his overacting, the type of guy who, when someone else does an impression of his Jim Kirk, you say to yourself, Haha, that's pretty funny, but it's a little over-the-top and unrealistic and then you watch an episode of Star Trek and realize, Good lord, that actually is how he acted! Amazing!  So here is an icon set that I made, entitled The many emotions of Captain James T. Kirk:

James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
exhausted
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
my eyeliner is smudged
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
stumped
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
heartbroken
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
surprised
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
what the
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
panicked
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk
can't breathe!
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
suspicious
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
wary
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
not Khaaan
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
jocular
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
more wary
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
I don't think so, buddy
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
inviting
James T. Kirk James T. Kirk -
"this guy"


I dunno, I thought they were really funny a few weeks ago, now I think they're just okay. Also, I think some of the comedic value is lost because of the way the table is breaking up the captions, but I've been messing with it and can't get it work right so fuckit. Fixed it. Any lack of comedic value is now entirely my fault.

Also, if you have a favorite one, tell me which one it is.

No way -- all of this is worth it as long as you've got the "this guy" icon. Amazing.

lame, i was hoping i could be the first person to vote for the "this guy" icon. i'd never heard that joke until maybe a year ago, and i can't get enough of it.

I don't know shit about Star Trek, but these are awesome! I'm with Heather on "this guy," but I also like "surprised," even if his foundation scares me.

Wait, so who do you think should share the blame for this shit not being funny?

I like the "Inviting" one, and "not Khaaaaaan." They're arty!

feel better soon!
Stumped has to be my favorite, though I lurve all of them TO DEATH.

P.S. I went to IKEA and saw the leaf thing you mentioned in person. Man oh man, I sure want one!

thanks, I will try!
You should get one! They're only fifteen bucks! You can pretend you are a tiny bug, asleep in the woods! I have two, actually, but I only put one up and I want to move it. I hung it too low, and I don't want a boy to hit his head on it whilst he's doing me doggy-style.



Also, I just realized I don't have a picture of Kirk being charming! This must be remedied.

Re: on the subject of icons
Hm. I think I like the comic, but does the site really have that ridiculous wide layout, or is it just my problem?

Re: on the subject of icons
Hmm. I'm pretty sure that's your problem! The layout seems to me to be no wider than most . . . why, do you have to scroll side-to-side?
