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. (:
