Today is the fourth glorious day of earth_vexer’s birthday week celebration. Without her talent for graphic design and her entertaining posts, my LJ existence would be very drab. Honestly, I’ve written many a haiku just because I wanted to pair it with a particular E_V icon. Also? When I’m having a dull day, I covetously browse through her tiny works of art the way other women look at expensive shoes online. So much pretty. Sorry I missed the actual day, E_V, and I hope you had a very good one.

I left the laptop open while looking for birthday post inspiration, and apparently, doll!Spike did a little searching through E_V’s icon archives himself. I fear that the experience has left him, if possible, even more full of himself than he was before. (He’s asked me to pass along a suggestion that Spike icons be tagged as "Spikons." *snort* Whatever, vampire!) We were going to try and re-create an icon pose together and do a little photographic homage, but once doll!Spike was overcome by art and the fumes of his own outsized plastic ego, I couldn’t do a damned thing with him. Maybe you’ll have more luck. ;)

how does she do it?!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EARTH VEXER! May the upcoming year bring you good things and lots of time to make art of any size you choose. :D

Poseable indeed! lol

And hey, in my house, birthdays should ALWAYS last at least a week.

I like the way you think, especially because it makes me look a lot less flaky. Yep, you don't want to go cold turkey on the birthday celebrations; it's best to taper down gradually so that you don't sugar crash. ;)

And bonus!birthday haiku!

Thank you! I was digging through his props and couldn't believe that I hadn't used the handcuffs yet. Truly, doll!Spike is prepared for every occasion. ;)

Icons are art. :) Long live earth_vexer!

Heeeeeeee cute! Thank you so much mere (I feel strange calling you that because of the bits of French in my head *g*) for the extended birthday celebration (heck, I'm still eating cake :D) and the kind words. And heh, I know I actually made it before you entered LJ-dom, but that poseable icon was meant for you. ;D

Aw, you're very welcome! (And hee! Philips is French and says that her mother would be scandalized to know that she's seeing another mere.) You make LJ a much prettier, funnier place to be.

*lol* The first time I saw the poseable icon, I almost fell out of my chair. There may have been gleeful hand-clapping, too. :)

Hee, this is great! And I do that too- both write stuffs after seeing her icons, and peek at her icons when I need a little eye-candy. Yay, Earth_Vexer!

Thanks, sweetie. *lol* You and E_V both have more visual-spatial sensibilities in your pinkies than I will ever have, but a low-quality photographic tribute seemed in order nonetheless. If LJ allowed 500 icons, I would have no trouble filling up my allowance with her little pretties. :D
