Icon Meme

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', 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.

These are the five that azewewish picked out:

makeawish -- I think I picked this one up from the eddieizzard community. piperredfern made it originally. I use it a lot for "good luck!" type replies to posts, or when I'm making a wish myself.

snakes -- One of my early crude attempts at icon-making, this is a still frame from the MST3K episode "Cave Dwellers" (Miles O'Keeffe wresting a giant snake puppet) combined with a memorable line from another MST3K episode, "Eegah!" (The line is dubbed in weirdly, which adds to the surrealism of it, and thus became one of those catchphrases among MSTies.) Obviously, I use this one a lot in the mst3k community.

sylvian -- because if I'm going to worship at the altar of David Sylvian, I should at least have an icon of the man, right? I put this one together myself.

boobies -- this lovely pair of boobies comes from a picture that my dad took. (Wow, that sounds really bad without the proper context.)

cookie monster abc -- I have no idea who made this icon originally (I swiped it from the collection of one ruby_stevens) but I am eternally grateful. This is a still from a classic (and clearly unscripted) bit on Sesame Street where the little girl reciting the ABCs with Kermit blurts out "Cookie Monster!" and starts giggling. Kermit goes all crumpleface and objects that "Cookie Monster is not a letter of the alphabet!" So they try again, and, as small children do when they find something that amuses them, she does it again. Kermit gets frustrated and walks off. "I love you!" the girl calls after him. Kermit comes back and says "I love you, too." I learned to read because of Sesame Street, so this little moment warms my little Gen-X nostalgic heart.

(Yay! YouTube knows all!)

Today I took pleasure in laughing my ass off at the "Put Down The Ducky" sequence that was one link away on YouTube.

Today I learned that a four-pound chicken will, indeed, fit in my crock pot.
