Icon meme - join the fun!  
First meme in forever but I HAD to do this one! :D

1. Reply to this post with "UNICORNS", 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.

I answered blue_icy_rose and got these awesome suggestions. It should be noted that a lot of my icons are chosen specifically to represent thoughts and state of mind when I comment and/or post entries. I don't do random icons much, I want them to relate to what I have to say.. But sometimes they do have more to do with the subject (fandom or otherwise) than my feelings.. it's all very confusing it seems *lol* anyways, here the choices are!

This one applies so many times it's almost too funny :) I often find myself confused about things, be it regarding things I post about or when I comment on others posts. Of course I gotta underline the fact that I'm all kinds of confused, wouldn't you? ;)

I've loved these two for years and I see way too little appreciation for them around the net. They have so many awesome moments and they can really get a thought through with just a facial expression (gotta love when Calvin is supposed to get photographed.. poor dad can't catch a break in the different faces his son makes ;)). And when something awesome happens, you just gotta dance - right?! And who better to do that when you can't virtually do it yourself than Calvin and Hobbes! :D

It's a fact!

I've begun appreciating stock-icons a lot more. If I've commented a lot in your journal or if you've kept an eye on my posts, they often feature a stock-icon instead of a fandom one. I guess I'm growing up? *lol* Sometimes they can be so much more connected to what you have to say than a "regular" fandom icon can be. And sometimes you don't really have any specific feeling you want to come across, it's more about the action in itself, this case writing in a journal. This icon is the closest you'll get to seeing me write in an actual journal, with a pen :) Also, it's beautiful, the way you have the scribbles, the rose and the dried and dark small flowers next to it, and end it all with a real pen. Not a regular ballpoint one, but a real one... Makes me want to be able to write in a beautiful style.. sadly I'm unable.. that part never did stuck with me since I grew up with computers. Hate that now! I want to be able to write they did in the past... 

Speaks for itself, doesn't it? It can apply to fun posts and sometimes it's just a nod to the fandom and the fun idea with Charlie's Angels.. and them not really being that :D

I totally agree with you about Calvin & Hobbs!!! That's why I have them as my mood theme. It means that no matter what my mood, I can always smile when I see the mood :P And I understand about the writing; I have very neat handwriting and I do use pens like the one in your icon but it is purely by choice. It's a shame that kids aren't taught to write properly and instead everything is about technology. May as well keep the skill as alive as possible :P

I gotta say I'm kind of jealous of you now and your writing, because I agree so much. It's sad that computers are killing the beautiful art of handwriting. Wish there was some kind of course I could take so I could learn how to write properly and pretty.

You don't even need a course - just pick up a pen and some inks (usually you can find them in a stationary store or art store) and check out some tutorials online! You'd get way more help online and I=if I come across any particularly good ones, I'll send them your way! :D

You're right, of course you're right! I actually remembered I had a real pen at home, but there's no ink in it and I can't figure out if it's refillable. Should be, it's all shiny and fancy with my name on it. How could I forget I had that? *doh* So yeah, gotta pick up some ink for it! And then start hunting tutorials! And please do send them my way! I'd love to be able to write the way they did in the 1800s, but being able to write in cursive at all would be a WIN in my case! ;)
