How I feel about it all: coldcold

aingeal8c tagged me for this one.

1. Go to your desktop and press the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).
2.Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and doing a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image before saving it.
3. Post the picture on your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop if you want. You can explain why you prefer such a look or why it is full of icons. Things like that.
4. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktops as well.


I can never get the Print Scrn key method to work for me, but I found freeware that does ths same thing.



I tag, hmm. This part's hard! aphephobia, naadi, bjohan57, scriggle, eltonroo.

Also anyone else who wants to do it. More fun than you'd ever thought you'd have with your monitor!

This is true. I mean, if you're breathing and all.

Mmm, mature Paul. He is delicious. And WOW, your desktop is tidy.

Yes, yes he is. :) I've had this picture as my desktop since I discovered it. I probably should change it. Eventually.


And WOW, your desktop is tidy.
The neatness of my desktop is inversely proportional to that of my house. It's a sad, sad thing. The folders look a lot less organized inside them.

My only complaint is that it's rather distracting. *stares*

I love that photo for the lines and creases and lived-in-ness.

What was the freeware that you found, because the prnt scrn thing doesn't work for me either?

*whimpers* Oh, yes. Paul is just a lovely, lovely man, no caveat needed.

The freeware is MegaCap. It's ridiculously easy to use.

Hee I suspected yours might have a certain pretty person on it. And very nice it is too. :-)

How is it that he just keeps getting more beautiful? He is not human. He can't be.

You know that slogan "You're not getting older, you're getting better"? It's actually true in his case. It's like a violation of some law of nature or something.

Well yeah, but a really good violation. LOL.

Here's my pic:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


Background picture: I think I stole it from Andrea Scher's site. Or perhaps a site which I visited as a result of Andrea. I like it because it's so colourful and I like orange. I'm deep like that.
I have many icons and folders - mostly fandom related on the desktop as otherwise I file things away and never find them again. 'Real life' is in folders, which is where I prefer to put things like that as I think of my home computer only as escapism. At the moment, I have the three passchen. clips, some The North This Week files which I put on my mp3 player as I commute, and a few episodes of My Favourite Husband.

...and see, I could never have a picture of Paul as my desktop - particularly those from the passchendaele set - as my husband can always tell when I've licked the screen.

Ooh, pretty! I don't know Andrea, or even of her. Enlighten?

I like orange in nature. Human-made orange, not so much, with exceptions. My friend Sandra has these glorious deep, rich orange sheer drapes. *covets*

otherwise I file things away and never find them again.

That's my problem. My desktop is neat and tidy but my folders are like Fibber McGee's closet. I just hate clutter on my desktop. Which is strange because my house is in a constant state of OMG CLEAN IT NOW.

I usually change my desktop picture like I change my mind (sometimes several times a day) but this one's been up for weeks because it's so pretty.

The next one will also be pretty, when I get around to changing it:

That's also very pretty!


Andrea is Andrea Scher - superhero, jewellery maker, photographer and artist extraordinaire, and one of the most inspiring people I have ever come across.

Here is her main site: http://www.superherodesigns.com/index.html

and here is her journal: http://www.superherodesigns.com/journal/
(Ben is her little boy who came along after many years of trying).

I have one of her neckalaces. I wear it every day and it always makes me feel better.

I'm beginning to think my OTP is Centre Block/me. I've been known to sit and stare at these pictures. When I was actually in the building I'm surprised they didn't cart me off to the nearest Crazy Person's Home.

And oh, pretty jewellery! I'll have to look through the site when I get back from my fiddle class. :)
