So [info] - personalparadisecity and [info] - personalaurora were both doing icon meme's, here are my responses. But first, the rules:

1. Comment that you'd like to play and I will pick four 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.

Ahh, my brain bitch icon. This was one of my really early SGA icons, and the only SGA icon that I use that I made myself. The text came from a conversation I had with [info]raxhel about how Rodney is the one who always has to save the day. I guess I was proud of the fact that I could make an icon, so made it my default, also, in my early days, I wanted to have a distinctive icon so that people would recognize it was me when I used it. That plan kind of fell to the wayside, since I'm a massive lurker. :P
Made by [info] - personalkaaatie this is one of my few icons that's a .gif. It's also one of my few McSheppy icons. For all that I ship them so hard, I don't have a lot of icons of the boys together. Still, the look they're sharing is just so *them*.
A thinky Don icon by [info]angeliksmall. I don't have much of a story for this one. I don't even think I've used it all that often. I have a ton of Numb3rs icons uploaded, but I'm not all that active in the fandom, and actually, haven't even been watching this season (I plan to catch up soon though!).
Icon by [info]spiffydaze. I love this icon, so much. It's got such pretty colours and can be used in so many different situations.

Ha, my gnome icon. Everyone always wonders about the gnome. Actually, there was a story behind this picture, I just don't actually remember it. It was first year university, and I'm sure I was over tired at the time. Also, there were a lot of random stories from first year university. This one however, had a picture to immortalize it. In the original size picture, I had added the caption "Gardens will never be the same again." Also, that was a hard manip to do, I did it all in *paint* and at some points drew it pixel by pixel. Damn, I wish I could remember the story behind this.
My sleepy cheeta icon. This is yet another one that I made, and it's actually from a picture I took too. That was from my trip to the Wuxi zoo. When I got back from China, I went through a bunch of my pictures and tried touching them up, and somehow icons happened. I have a couple different China icons uploaded, and actually use them.
Icon by [info]kukalaka. Oh pretty, angsty Don. That was pretty much my entire reasoning in uploading it. :P
Icon by [info]wearmyhat. Rodney with a pancake on his head. It's a surprisingly useful icon. It says so much with no actual text. Actually, I think I originally saw this icon when [info] - personalaurora was using it and I asked if it was shareable and ran with it.

Meme #2: The Desktop Meme
01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

This was a wallpaper I made, based off of [info]tasha_neko's beautiful pictures she had taken. They are actual dolls she has, that she dressed up to look like Snape and Harry. I got into a real Harry Potter kick a while back and changed my desktop to this pic (which I've used in the past, but not for years), I hardly ever change my desktop pic. Actually, I hardly ever look at my desktop, so it's easy for pics to stay the same for forever.

Meme #3?
While I was poking through my files, and getting ready to upload these pictures, I saw some pictures from a meme I originally did back in, like 2004. Basically, you leave a comment and I'll check out your interests and draw you a picture based on what I read. It probably won't be pretty (I'm not all that artistically inclined) but it will likely be funny :P (You can see some of the pics I drew the first time 'round here in amongst some other random pics). The porn one? Was totally for [info]scatteredheart :P)
