Icon meme!

We forgot to get the mail yesterday, and when we finally got it this morning, there was a check inside! It was from TokyoPop, and it had a slightly early payment for one book, and a super early payment for another book! Whoa! It kind of feels like TokyoPop is calling out to us, "Come... Come to Anime Expo..." But unfortunately, it's still not enough. Things are looking a little extra dire, actually (due to other developments that we'd rather not talk about). We're optimistic, but even if we get our check from Yen Press, Anime Expo isn't looking like a wise idea. Hrm.

In a complete change of subject, we're participating in a meme! From coastal_spirit.

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

And now! This meme gave us the push we needed to finish another icon we had in the works! We have no idea when we would use it, but the idea was just too funny to pass up! So! without further ado! Collapse )

Tadah! (I had to put it under a cut so as not to give it away too soon.)

Today I'm thankful for chances to ramble about our icons, getting that check in the mail, finishing that last icon, adorable chapters of Happy Cafe (as if any of them aren't), and getting a warning about the roadwork they're going to do on the parking lot tomorrow so we can figure out how we want to deal with it (waking up to jackhammers is never a pleasant experience).
