Pick three of your icons and explain the significance of each. Pick ones that aren't obvious in their meaning; feel free to go off on tangents, let your head spin and your fingers type. Of course, if all of your icons are obvious in their meaning, then this meme is obviously not for you.


This image is for irritation. It's one of the first icons I made myself (for welcomerain, who didn't seem to actually want it). It seems to quite successfully convey a teeth-gritting irritation, which I didn't plan that it would. These are dentures- they are from a National Geographic article on Lichtenstein, from the late 70s (did you know that the #1 product of Lichtenstein is dental hardware? Well, you do, now).


Nutria Alley (which used to be in New York, and is smack-dab-in-the-middle of this graphic) no longer exists. This one is meant to signify digging things up that have fallen off the map; it seems that the icon generally gets used for things off-the-beaten-path which I know, which is another sense it works well for.


It pleases me to no end to have a cute widdwe vampiwe bat to use for posts where I feel especially cosy, at home, &c. If you dig through my memories you can find out a bit more about this little beastie's story- it's actually quite an impressive tale.
