Yoinked from nqn (haha, I, too, have loads of icons! Sorry!!).

1.Reply to this post, and I will pick three 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 squee. Whoo!

In Charge of the Monkey. . A few years ago I had a dream about reddheaded and disbandedtoastr. In my dream Redd’s husband had searched the state over for the perfect barn for their dream wedding and he was showing it to her, Toaster, and me so we could see it. We were discussing wedding setup, running through the rehearsal, decorating etc. and Redd turned to me and said something like “Are you okay about not being one of the bridesmaids” and I cheerily replied “that’s okay! You put me in charge of the monkey!” Then I picked up the reigns of one of the horses, helped the monkey to get on its back, and started putting the monkey through his paces for riding circles inside the barn during that part of the ceremony. So ever since that dream there’s been a running joke between the three of us that I’m in charge of the monkeys and I get cool monkey-themed presents every Christmas.

Banana Jr is Oliver Wendell Holmes’s computer from Bloom County. I’ve loved Bloom County since the 80’s. I married a Mac fundamentalist and since learned the Banana Jr was a play on Apple Computers so I made that icon to do posts about my husband, his podcast, and computer stuff in general. I’m really proud of that one because it was the first time I used the lasso tool and cut around things and moved the position of images to actually manipulate a photo instead of just crop it.

Soot Sprites Spirited Away is my favorite Hayao Miyazaki movie (though everything I’ve seen by him I have loved). In addition to being a great story it is visually beautiful; I would have a million icons from that movie if I could. But my favorite part of the movie was the soot sprites that carried the coal into the furnace for the spider guy so that he could heat the bath water. They are so cute I wish I could have a house full of them!! That image is when he was throwing what looked like candy sprinkles down to them on their lunch break. That’s the second version of that particular icon; I redid it to make the candy look brighter using some color alteration tool in Photoshop. We have a lot of parties and gatherings at our house so I wanted a “party” icon. I have a non-text version of it, too, and also one that says “Sprites” on my other account plus I have a Soot Sprites icon of them throwing coal into the fire for rough days at work.

Hey! I was waiting for the strike to end - sorry for the delay in responding :)

I don't know how to make the pictures appear here so I'm just going to list the titles! I have already asked you about a few of your icons so I'm picking different ones.

1) Cousin Marty
2) Random dude shaving in the park
3) Cownose (your main picture)

Can't wait to read the stories :)
