Icon meme

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.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

sharpiefan picked:

Edinburgh. My home city, and possibly the most beautiful city in the world (depending where you're standing).
Image from an old map of the area around the Firth of Forth, found online.
Used for Edinburgh stuff, and occasionally map or geography geekery.

Autumn leaves. Again, a picture I found online.
Autumn has a very definite feel for me - partly the start of the new academic and dancing year - and I tend to use this icon a lot then. The flower is to some extent a summer equivalent.

A hug. Rarely used now.
I do love Calvin and Hobbes, but that wasn't really the reason behind it - it was just for supportive-but-contentless comments.

One of my newest icons - the picture is Stephen Maturin from the Master and Commander film, the quote I think is from Desolation Island, and is supposed to refer to learning about people from what they write, not what they read, but never mind.
Mostly used for M&C community stuff, sometimes for bookworm type posts.
I'd never had icons which were pictures of other people until very lately, or icons not made by me.

This is my original default icon, from a picture I drew of myself dancing, possibly for seonaidh.
It's the first step of the highland fling, and I'm wearing the very short black skirt I used to wear to ceilidhs. That must have been shortly after the first time I cut my hair off - I chop it to that length every so often, then let it grow until it annoys me again, and repeat.
Very rarely used now.

The original bookworm icon. More often records of what books I'd bought or was reading than actual reviews or discussion.
