Icon meme

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!

These are the icons of mine that miraxcorran picked.

This was a photo of Diesel, sitting on the living room carpet. I tried out the psychadelic filter on photoshop or paint or whatever, and played around until I got a result I liked. I titled it 60's cat because the effect is classically 60's, and because that's the decade I was born in.

This is a 'Local Hero' icon, made by Raptorguts. It shows Denis Lawson, as Gordon Urquart, dancing with his wife in  the dining room of their hotel. I like Denis, I like the movie and I like dancing. And I would like to dance with Denis.

  This is one of redscharlach 's fabulous mini icons. Most are Dr Who/Torchwood icons, but she does others, including some fab 'The Good Life' mini icons. She did a batch of Top Gear icons not long ago, and I took this one of James May, with characteristic comment. Her journal is well worth reading and the icons are great.

All my own work, this one. This is my cat, Skiffle, lying sprawled on the carpet, yawning. You can't see it in the icon, but in the original picture you can see the black splodge on the roof of her mouth. The caption seemed to suit her pose, and is a useful one to have on an icon :)

Saw this one on a comment by Penny-Anne in the ms-support community and asked about it. She couldn't remember where she got it from so I took it from her to use in other places. I don't have loo paper on a roll like that, which is probably just as well. Diesel was fond of turning tissues into doilies when she was a kitten, and I bet she would have done much the same as the cat in this icon, if she'd had the chance.

I adore that cat one, with the toilet paper; the irony of the dancing icon is that it reminds me of two completely different characters played by completely different actors. But it makes me happy.

Also, feel free to pick icons. :)

Hmm. Not sure I can post images in comments with the style sheet I have. I'll use your tags to indicate the ones I mean.

I choose:

sw: sister
ww:drop kick into fjords
ww.out to brunch
buffy:marry me
house: House (sceptical)

I'll reply here, since I already did the meme.

The "Dude, you just kissed your sister" one just makes me lol. I mean, it's the perfect caption to that moment, because that moment grosses me out just a bit. Sometimes more than that.

"Do you have any idea how much I'd like to dress you up in lederhosen and drop-kick you into the fjords right now?" CJ Cregg = awesome. Fjords = awesome. Jed Bartlet = awesome. CJ giving it back to the president = awesome to the bazillionth power.

"How about this? We drop out of the UN entirely and use the 926 million to take everyone in the country out to brunch?" See, the deal is that I love Ainsley, even if her political views are totally wrong sorely misguided. And she's the perfect foil for Sam, so ... (she says this to Sam).

Oh god. That Buffy icon. That just makes me laugh so hard. It takes the canonically incongruous elements of omgXanderlurvesBuffy and omgBuffy'sdoingSpike and puts them into one icon. Complete with "what if I bleach my hair?"

And Hugh Laurie is amazing. I'm so totally in love with House. And the scene that icon comes from is wonderful, too. Because Wilson kidnapped House's guitar.

I too feel love for the toilet roll cat. Thankfully our cat has not yet discovered the joys of toilet roll! Please pic some of my icons. I shall bore you with their stories in return (really, none of them have interesting stories!)
