Comment and I'll give you three of your icons and three of your interests to explain.

Here's what silsbee329 asked about.
Icons
single rose - Is there a story behind it?
I found this icon, made by x__conniieee, one day when I was wandering around LJ. I thought it was absolutely lovely and have kept it ever since. I use it for posts of a more personal nature.

john adams - I love 1776!
This icon, made by roadstergal, tickled my fancy as I, too, am a huge fan of 1776! I love William Daniels, who I first was introduced to with St. Elsewhere, and I thought he was a totally wonderful John Adams. I bought the DVD and watch it every few months. What fun music!

jeeves ties bertie's shoe - does this one make you as insanely happy as it makes me? ;D
Ohhhh, yesss! I made this icon, and every time I use it I think of the quote where one of them mentioned how odd it was to have Stephen waiting on Hugh like this; particularly things like taking off shoes, helping in the bath, etc. Also, I'm a sucker for any shot that shows one of them touching the other one. Hee!

Interests
Fanfic: What got you interested, and when?
I'm a newcomer to fanfic! I started watching House last summer and quickly became a H/W shipper! I got obsessed with Hugh Laurie from there, and I stumbled onto fanfic as I was doing Internet searches to learn more about him. Then I found LJ and saw that it was a good source for a wide variety of fanfic; from there I found J/W fic, and the rest is squee-ish history! :)

Hugh Laurie: What's the first role you noticed him in?
House! I've only been a card-carrying Hugh!girl for about 9 months, but I am rabid! :) It wasn't long before I found Stephen Fry (where have these two been all my life?), and the obsession just went crazier from there.

The Gimp: Tell me why you like it so much. :)
1. It's FREE! :)
2. It wasn't incredibly hard to learn, and there are a lot of good tutorials and information on LJ and the Internet to help you learn it.
3. It's fun to use; I've really been impressed at some of the graphics I've been able to create! I know it's not quite as fancy-schmancy as Photoshop and some other programs, but I like it! *huggles GIMP* (although a different name would have been more preferred!)

You! A 1776 fan! Yayness! I don't believe I knew that! *boing*

And I'll take a comment and interest as well...

Yay! Yep, I've been a 1776 for *years*! PBS used to show it every July 4, but I don't think they've done that for a long time. So I wound up buying the DVD so I could have my own freedom celebration whenever I wanted. :)

I love "Cool, Cool Considerate Men" and all of the John/Abby interactions the best. And the Richard Henry Lee song makes me laugh.. uproarious-LEE!

OK, for icons, I want to know about Kipper Kirk, Fascintating, and Courting. For interests, tell me about Alan Moore, Ed Exley, and Naraku/Kagome. I've never heard of any of those!

Yay! Great answers!

1776: I just saw this for the first time last winter for some reason, and I fell in love with it immediately. So funny! And William Daniels is delightful.

Fanfic: I have almost the same story, but I started watching in earnest last spring (around the time that "House vs. God" aired - that's when I first noticed the H/W yumminess).

Hugh: Same here, except for the Stephen part. I've been a fan of Stephen's since "Peter's Friends" (I never really noticed Hugh in that until after "House". Silly me.) and then "Wilde". I was completely intrigued to find out that the two of them were best friends. Now, like you, I can't get enough of them! (I can't believe I just bought that Jeeves clock!)

GIMP: Oy, that name! Hee. I'm all for free stuff, though! If I'd known it existed before I got PSP, I might be a GIMP person, too.

Yeah, I can see how you'd kind of miss out on Hugh in "Peter's Friends" over Stephen. He was lovely in that movie (as he is always!). And "Wilde"... *swoon*! What a fabulous piece of work.

So for interests, I'd like to know more about hindi films, harlem renaissance, and old movies... how did you get interested in all of them? :)

For icons, tell me more about Toys Rock, Amy, and SV Tasty.

Yay! I love for people to play along!

For icons: What are you doing?, walking in a scent of loveliness, and teddy one. I'd like to know why you like them and how you got some of the effects.

For interests: icon making (how did you get interested?), the boondock saints (never heard of them!), and typing (typing??)

PS... I LOVE your new Kingdom icons. Mmmmmmmmm

For icons: the two rainbow ones and, OK, I'll bite... the rodent erotica one. Hee!

For interests: blue whale, homosexual whistling (I'm almost afraid to ask!), and custard socks (again, there's a bit of fear in picking that one )

Hallo there! :)

First off, is Stephen taking applications for a new lady friend? If so, where do I sign up???? :D

Icons: Bunny sex (hee!), SP/NF OTP (who are they?), and Hugh's Wrists Tied (*gulp* ZOMG! What is that from??)

Interests: askewniverse, fried gold, and roadside prophets. I've got no idea what any of those are!

NOTE: I had the oddest problems posting this! I hope your email isn't being spammed with it!

where do I sign up
Right after me, darling.

Actually, it would seem that he was taking those applications 20 years ago. I wonder if all the positions have been filled. ;D

..... No wonder Hugh started cross-dressing.

Icons:

Bunny Sex - Someone posted that photo with a Happy Easter message a few years ago, so I made an icon out of it. Er, I keep it because people seem to like it... and I especially like to use it when posting/commenting about sex-stuff.

SP/NF OTP - That's Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from such films as Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz and the greatest sitcom ever Spaced. That icon was made from a screen cap I made of them kissing in the zombie episode of Danger! 50000 Volts!.

Hugh's Wrists Tied - is a screen cap I made from the cinematic masterpiece Girl From Rio. I'm pretty sure I made it just to use with one of my fics that featured Hugh with his hands tied behind his back.

Interests:

Askewniverse - Kevin Smith's company is called View Askew. All (almost?) of the movies made by View Askew exist in the same universe (sharing characters, references to each other, actors, and locations).... the View Askew Universe aka The Askewniverse.

Fried Gold - I'll give you the Urban Dictionary's definition of this one:
Fried Gold, meaning 'great' or 'perfect' replaced the phrase 'Textbook' in the Spaced DVD commentry and also appeared in Shaun of the Dead. The phrase was invented by Nick Frost, who is also a firm believer that dogs can't look up.

Roadside Prophets - One of my favorite movies of all time. One in which, I might add, that I've never met another living soul in real life nor on the interwebs who has ever seen it. However, I very obscurely referenced it several times in my Dogma fics, so there's one person on my f-list who always gets it when I include it in a 'guess the movie' quiz. I think I love this movie mostly for the dialogue.

RE NOTE: I only got it twice. ^^
