Icon meme post  
DIRECTIONS:
* reply to this post with the word MEME and I will pick six of your icons.
* make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
* other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
* this will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

  <-- My Princess Tutu phase, and my favourite Unspoken Ship--that is to say, the author said that Princess Tutu/Ahiru ends up being a princess with two princes (well...okay, Fakir is a knight...) and he totally takes away Mytho/the Prince's girl. It's all part of my appreciation for the symbolism of ballet in an anime.

  <-- This is one of my favourite stories, and I've just never found a way to use the icon. Amy Tan is a genius, coming up with a faery tale about why Siamese cats have dark faces, tails, etc. There was a short-lived series about it, but I never really got into it. Anyway, someday I'll find a way to put it to good use...

  <-- So, the same year that Andrew Lloyd Webber made a musical out of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, Edward Gorey had a version of it published with his own illustrations. This particular one is of The Rum Tum Tugger, (my favourite cat) and the lines He's always on the wrong side of every door / As soon as he comes home he likes to get about. Gorey is just another one of those amazing artists who Knows cats.

  <-- Interesting story, this: See, I ran into an RP blog for the Marauder's Era, and for the most part I looked at the PBs and thought, "eh, okay..." (Although I did like Mitch Hewer as Barty). However, I looked at "Regulus"--Shaun Haugh, that is--and thought "OH MY GOD, HE'S PERFECT!!!" Seriously, she found Regulus Black. Anyway, I've been obsessed with Shaun Haugh since I first found out about him, he's so beautiful! And he's now my own Regulus icon. (Now, if only he were an actor. Or British. Or both. I had a friend tell me she'd go to see the movie just for him, which is saying something, since she dislikes nearly everything about the movies.)

  <-- One day I just thought "I need a Monty Python icon." I was going to choose one either from The Life of Brian or Monty Python and the Holy Grail. However, I found this Flying Circus one and loved it. And I know we've all felt this way from time to time.

  <-- The first song by Rufus Wainwright I ever heard. Wouldn't it be a lovely headline / Life is beautiful / On the New York Times. Just one of those things I couldn't agree with more, That, and the Bolero is played in the background.
