Fall is a mysteriously lovely time of year, especially when the light wanders somewhere between summer and twilight. I don't care what people say, the leaves do change color here in Northern California!

Sophia showed me this awesome frozen yogurt place this afternoon. It's almost as good as the one near Harvard. [ profile] lacesilkvinyl, I want to get boba with you, Danielle, and Sophia right now! (I'm really sorry about being lousy and unreliable, but I can't call you until this weekend because I'm low on cell phone minutes until November. And I have a really nasty feeling that the birthday card and CD that I sent you never did show up. Damn the post office.) And wander around Cambridge until beautifully absurd hours of the morning and stare at the stars from the foot of the Lamont Library steps. The Harvard reps came to visit the IHL this afternoon, and I kept wanting them to hurry up through all of the obvious stuff about concentrations instead of majors and reading periods and whatnot. But of course, they ended up saying everything I already knew about the place, although with a little more PR enhancement. They never even mentioned how fabulous Cambridge is for uni students. And now I have just made my uber-pretentious quota for the day.

'Tis the ringing season again during which hapless junior ringees find creative ways to woo their senior ringers into giving the juniors the seniors' class rings. Apparently there are a lot of all-girls' institutions with similar traditions (including Banquet), according to Ellie, who spent her senior year of high school at an American all-girls boarding school. I am quite delighted with mine; I wasn't expecting anything this morning when I found that adorable Snoopy stuffed animal holding the jack-o-lantern and the cute black cat mug with the Halloween candy. And then there was the inspirational "you can get through college apps" card. Huzzah! Must think of something nice to do for whoever it is-I've narrowed it down to two people.

And now for my totally bizarre output of boredom )

Yay for finally having a working internet connection on my laptop in my dorm room! I just randomly wandered around Cambridge for the past few hours with Danielle and Mekkhi (friend who lives just down the hall), so if I'm more incomprehensible than usual then I apologize in advance. We just randomly talked about ourselves and explored the area around Annenberg (the freshman cafeteria housed inside a cathedral) and jumped on the stones by the fountain spray thing outside the Science Center. We walked over to this hotel where my parents will be staying when they're visiting me on Sunday, and we went out for some really yummy bubble milk tea. And earlier this evening I met a bunch of fairly nice guys on the fifth floor, so I finally know some guys in my dorm. I quite enjoyed myself; perhaps I'll take some pictures of Harvard Yard and the various buildings because they're really all very stately (too many adverbs there!). Sometime in the afternoon tomorrow if I ever wake up, Mekkhi, Danielle, and I will wander into Boston and roam around some more.

So in honor of having my lovely internet connection, I can finally share all of those random icons that I made yesterday. There are more to be posted later. Pity that I can't make animated GIFS on my computer, argh...

Edit: all icons have been moved to my icon journal, [ profile] retro_activity. Find more retro and spy-related icons there!

Diana Rigg icons from the Avengers and OHMSS, plus 2 semi-related ones that look cool )

I need to get Photoshop onto Karen, my laptop, because I am really starting to get sick of the limited editing functions of Microsoft paint. Yeah, so maybe it's easier to shrink things (sort of) in sizes of perfect squares. That's about it. Even trying to add simple text is a pain, let alone color touchups and basic GIF animation. I can always use the library computers to further edit, but the whole transferring of files from one computer to another is getting tiresome.

But I finally got around to doing all of those Vertigo icons, and they don't seem to be too bad.

My not so shining masterpieces, now with the touched up versions )
