. Comment to propogate meme or if you'd like me to talk about one of my other icons
My userpics represent the topics, contexts or moods of my posts.
My cat, Racky. Used for posts talking mostly about him. From a photo I gave my Grandma one Xmas after she'd moved and he'd stayed here, and is now on top of my bookcase.
Originally used to flag meme posts (flying frivilously free) I also use it occasionally for joyful, uplifting posts or KAOS Expeditionary Army related posts.
I'd rather have the kea than the kiwi as our national bird, to be honest.
This is one of my miseryguts icons, used when I'm feeling particularly gloomy or angstful. Instantly recognisable to most of my friends as being from the Sisters of Mercy. I cropped the icon out of a favorite computer wallpaper :)
Currently my default LJ icon, taking over from the blue knight as that developed a more 'professional' connotation for me. I've had it just as long (clipart preloaded on my first computer), and I regard it as a friendly, inquisitive sort of picture.
I've used this image tiled as a wallpaper in the past. It's a step up from the SoM icon on the miseryguts scale, representing 'a little depressed/unhappy over here' rather than straight-up angst or bitching.
This is my "Evil DM" icon, usually associated with posts about games I'm running/planning or ideas I'm throwing out there from a DM perspective. I actually did an LJ poll to finalise the choice.
I may occasionally use it for other posts involving conspiracy or manipulation.
