1. Reply to this post, 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.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.


This is me from a private project where I started taking pictures of myself in order to properly give my looks (in terms of photos) credit. Like, what do I look like in photographs? Do I hate pictures because I'm not as good looking as I think I am? I found that I have gorgeous eyes in my estimation. And, in that photo, I'm feeling good. (Thank you, creator!) I think everyone should have a mosaic icon of themselves.

Oh, I wish I remembered the name of this model. I'm not sure or not if it's Noemie Lenoir or Chrishell Stubbs. It's one of my wtf icon for posts and comments that range from ORLY to WTFMANG (suitable for honkeyshines, familiar entitlement stuff that hasn't enraged me and oh, that again, nice).

Mmmhm. I love this icon. It reminds me of Venice. A cleaner, pinker, imaginary spring-time Venice. It puts me in mind of flying buttresses, the most beautiful (white) man I ever saw (I followed him around the Louvre along with thirty other school girls), those rose windows at Notre Dame, why I like Fibonacci sequences, and that pink is a power. I made it from a some pyzam graphics. It also reminds me of wombs.

That's Jesse L. Martin. He's so pretty and smug here. But harmless. He also reminds me of Bill Cosby in the Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids aspects. I use it when I'm feeling particularly satisfied. Or happy. Or gleeful about being pretty, witty, or wise (and wiseass). 'Tis a general purpse HEE and 'it's good to be me/black/pretty/smart" icon.

Oh, isn't that lovely? I wish I remembered from where I got that graphic. Maybe zandz. It reminds me of life and power and love and divinity and creation and responsibility. And hope. As in: I am in good hands. I have good hands. You are in good hands. You have good hands. I am so grateful for you. Thank you for your gift of self. Yay deserved blessings. Grace is right now, etc. I could go on and on about it. It's my, yes I believe in you/me/God/us/the blessings of the Lord make rich and bring no sorrow.

That's a really lovely icon of you - has a lot of personality in it with the focus on the eyes :)

Interesting choices ;)

I'll do the meme on my next update. I'm afraid at least one of them will involve World of Warcraft explanations, heh.

Hmm. Interesting that you chose mostly non-figural icons rather than the pretty for which you're so famous.

For what it's worth, I think you're stunningly beautiful, but your eyes ARE definitely most excellent.

The chick being shaved icon always disturbed me a little. I think it's the fact that someone has their hands on her head and a sharp blade. Still, it's very good for dramatic effect.

Jesse L. Martin is a great actor. He has huge charisma and a good acting range. He's more leading man conventionally handsome than some of my personal favorite black male TV actors (Andre Braugher, Yaphet Kotto, Steve Harris) but definitely a great and under-utilized talent.

ANd the globe is beautiful too. Yay deserved blessings.

Thank you. :D

Oh, cool. And what a neat reason for that too. :D Thanks for that explanation.

I think all of the men you list are good, but Jesse L. Martin makes me smile. Don't know why. It just happens. :)

You have gorgeous eyes by any estimation, not just your own. :-)
