It just hit me that icons are basically pieces of flair. I paid $175 for extra flair.


And yet, I don't regret it. *goes back to digging up icons for near-future upload*

Oh, wait, in other news, I think I'm going to do yuletide next year. I subscribed to the comm to see exactly what it's all about, and when all the reccs started coming in, I was pleasantly surprised and quite impressed. I mean, there was Saved by the Bell fanfic -- and it was GOOD. (It's here, in case your curiosity gets the best of you.)

Other randomness: I wiki'ed my high school the other day and found out that Nora Roberts was one of the many celebrity alums. (Others include Goldie Hawn, Connie Chung, and Ben Stein.) I've never read any Nora Roberts -- romance isn't so much my genre -- but I thought a few of you might be amused by the news.

Life in Meghanland is a bit tumultuous right now. She's been sick with a fever for the past two days. It's nothing serious, no cough or sniffliness or upset stomach or anything, but she's been really whiny, cranky, and clingy because of it, and she hasn't eaten much in the way of non-breastmilk foods. I am also almost positive I feel a tooth starting to push up under her gums (it's about time -- homegirl is nine months old and toothless!), which I'm sure is not helping the situation. Her fever went up to 102.5 yesterday, but it didn't get nearly that high today, so I think she's getting better. Hopefully tonight won't be as bad as the last couple, where she was waking up every 2-3 hours -- and sometimes every 15 minutes! Poor girl....

ETA: GAH. I hate how you can't rename an icon without LJ changing every instance you've used that icon in the past to your default icon. I want to rename a bunch of icons so that there's more of a system to their names (which will make it easier for me to select from them), now that I can have nearly 200 of them, but all of my old uses of them will go to the default. Grrrr.

It's a sloppy way to do it, but you can always leave the old names and add new ones by using a comma. There were a few icons I REALLY didn't want to go and switchback, so some of mine have two keywords. It worked for me, at least, because my keywords all start with "[" instead of with a letter, so my old keywords are at the very bottom of the icon list.

That's exactly what I do. And if you want to use the same word to describe a few icons, the system is case sensitive. I have only distinguished them via initial caps. I wonder whether other orders would work, such as

Yuletide is so much fun. It's the thing I get most excited about at this time of the year.

I have no proof, but I've always been of the opinion that breastfed babies teethe later than bottlefed (thank bob!) I never minded being the 'bearer of food', but never wanted to be the 'teething ring'! My girls didn't cut their first tooth till around 10 months, and had the nipple pulled from their mouth post-haste the minute they started 'chewing' during the teething phase.
