If you make or use mood themes you might wanna read this: Clicky!

1) This is going to just about all of my communities, except a very small number of them. I've invited people that make icons to any number of my communities but haven't always gotten as many icon posts as I'd like; often cuz other members discouraged such posts. So, from now on, those of you that make icons are encouraged to join and post your work at Lots and lots of IconsIconnage·Art...

...which isn't to say you can't keep posting what you do here, but I'd like you to post it there as well. Especially as it's specifically just an icon community I'd love for you to post there more than you do here and as often as possible.

This doesn't count icon posts or icon dumps of stuff you didn't make yourself, as some of my communities allow for.

2) Changing one of my standard rules: If you want to advertise any kind of community please do so at Livejournal OverdoseWe·Need·a·Life and not here. I used to allow advertising in any of my communities if it kept to the theme of that community but I'd like to cut down on that a bit...until it dwindles to nothing.

oh the weather outside was frightfulMuch as I know you guys like pictures, I regret to say that between Mom, KevinniveK, SuziSuzi, and I the cake didn't survive long enough to actually take any shots of it. Cake part was dryer than usual, due to a little upset in preparation, but the icing was to die for!

As I got enough requests for a followup, here's the recipe for it. Top part is the cake, bottom part is the icing. Sadly you'll have to work out translating Mom's writing as best you can...



...don't worry, it gets bigger once you click it.

This post was originally intended for food_porn but in case it didn't meet with approval, I wanted to make sure I had a copy of it somewhere.

This year was the 1st time I was actually around when it was being made. I can't tell you much about it though as my brain sort of switched off when the scent of the icing cooking reached me. All I can say for sure is that I was vibrating in the kitchen for a fairly long stretch.

Make of that what you will.

Thanksgiving is almost here in the U.S., heralding the start of the holiday season and the first of many meals where you might be confronted with a traditional dish that you happen to find disgusting. What holiday food do you hate to see on the table?


I'm the only one in the family, so far as I'm aware, that doesn't drink...

...how messed up is it that "drinking" fundamentally refers just to alcohol and not other fluids?

While there'sany number of things in the usual Thanksgiving spread that aren't overly appealing to me it's really just the things with extral alcohol in them that bug me. A little dab of bourbon is in the sweet potatoes and enough of that is burnt off in the cooking process that other than a slight flavor, I barely notice it. however, most Southern recipes call for a more heavy soaking and there's a couple things on the table that hit me like they're +100 proof

Thanks devi!

In all my communities I allow for advertising so long as it fits the theme of the place. However, what a lot of people tend to miss is that I have an actual advertising community that they can advertise absolutely anything in.

Livejournal OverdoseCommunity·Crack

So I'm only posting this to my own comms...because it would be silly to advertise this in itself and to make sure you all know.
We use tags!

...though I may not outright delete it.

10:18 PM 8/1/08 · Let's face facts, this comm has never done all that well. Postings are sporadic and usually the only time anyone else posts here is in response to whenever I posted something here. I post something here and there'd be a brif flurry of activity from a couple others...and then it all died right after until the next time I posted something.

Sometimes no activity from anyone else in months.

So, I'm going to use the mood for here and slap it onto GOBBLE GOBBLETurkey·Day, a themed community to what I'd like to think is fairly obvious.

It's one of my favorite holidays and there's seriously a lack of celebration of it in my humble opinion. The fact it occasionally falls square on my birthday has nothing to do with this.

I'd like to think some of you, if not all, would hop on over to there. Odds are it will largely only be active roundabout one time a year...but that's okay by me.
