Meme: talking about my user icons

The rules (nom nom copypasta):
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six 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.

These six were picked by eilonwy:



Sylvia Poggioli is the senior European correspondent for NPR; she could read the phone book and I'd still tune in. The icon is from a Zippy the Pinhead strip where Zippy visits the NPR website and repeats various NPR people's names. I use this icon when I talk about public radio, particularly when I post or comment in npr_junkie.




This is one of the color plates from Norman Ault's Dreamland Shores, a book of verse for children published in 1920. It's a lovely book. I don't really have any rhyme or reason for when I use this icon, I just think it's pretty.




I find this hilariously funny -- and true, should I ever find an appropriate venue to do so.




It's Teeny Little Super Guy! He's at the right hand of Mr. Rogers in my pantheon of Good Things. I like to use this icon when I dispense useful information or advice.




This is actually a photo of my grandmother during World War II (full size photo). Family legend has it that she painted the artwork on the car, but I don't have any supporting documentation either way. I use this icon mostly when I talk about military-related topics, and as my icon when I belonged to militaryspouses.




I found this delightful character while I was looking for a flying helmet. (I still don't have one, but someday I'll acquire a shearling flying helmet from Pop's. They have a store near Incirlik if any of you find yourselves there and have some time to spend looking at nice custom-fit leather goods.) You can read the first Aviatrix story, The Mystery of the Phantom Ace for free online. I use this icon for waxing pathetic about my obsession with mid-century aircraft, the local flight museum, and related topics. If I ever get around to posting more about hats, it will probably become my hat icon too. (:

If you get a flying helmet, then you could become like Swinger Girl! And maybe Swing on through to the Other Side!

Ah, but Swinger Girl left on vacation. Poor confused Spinelli.

Hi, my name is Melissa and I have watched too many cartoons. (:

and the one without any keywords of Pepe the King Prawn with the word "sexy baby".

This meme confuses me ...

But maybe that's because I only have one icon.

Re: ...
I understand.

I have a ridiculous number of available icons to use (197!) and of the 54 I am using now, I only use about five or six of them with any frequency. Vogon teases me that I use my icons in a very utilitarian way, but I told him before we even met that I read too much John Stuart Mill as a child. (And holy crap, Mill's wife was beautiful.)

I can't figure out if I know who Teeny Little Super Guy is or not. Vaguely familiar... I shall have to Google.

He's from a series of shorts run on Sesame Street. There's about a dozen of them, a couple are on YouTube. I only have eight in my personal collection on VHS.
