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!
This came to me years ago from one of my sisters-in-law. It was one of those email jokes captioned something like "When pumpkins drink too much!" Call it the juvenile side of me, but it just made me giggle madly. I never delete emails. Ever. I had messages from when Mark and I shared an account back in 2003 on my computer before its most recent episode of going tits up. I guess I was getting short on memory, so I decided to go through and delete old messages finally and this picture was still buried way back in the archives. It made me laugh all over again and I could not resist the chance to inflict it on everyone.
This was a present from Leo_the_Lop. I honestly can't remember the occasion. I think this was her reply to one of those 'make me an icon that reminds me of you' memes. I do remember she posted it with a nice note about how it was done because I work with kids.
Okay, I'll admit it. I'm still addicted to on-line role-playing. I mainly play Changelings in the Old World of Darkness setting in chat rooms and this is the symbol of the kith I play most often.
This is another picture I got in an email from my sister-in-law. I really wanted an icon of it but I suck at making video icons. Hell, I can't even figure out how to save them half the time. I spotted in on captainsblog's journal one day and claimed it as my own.
I'm a fan of get Fuzzy most of the time. It's not often that one is both not that funny and so funny I almost stopped breathing. I don't know what it is about this one, but a lot of people on my friends list had the same reaction. As I remember it was just Satchel and Bucky sitting at the window looking at birds in a tree and Satchel asks "Bucky, where do little birds go when they die?" This icon is the answer.
