Oh noes! icon meme

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it's interesting to you, what significance does it have.

I have 107, my current max. I really like userpics. I could probably write something on every icon I have, and all the icons I've used in the past.

open shirt Current default, to go with my current layout. Cropped from a manip by the amazing wickedfox. TEA evil can wait By dwg, keywords "TEA evil can wait". 'Cause that's what the icon says. For beverage-related posts, or posts where I am advising that people put creature comforts before angst.
excited By ruuger, keyword "excited". I use this one a lot. I like the raised-eyebrows happy look on Giles' face. Passion By marina_angel_, "Passion". I use this rarely, but I need to have an icon of Giles with flaming baseball bat handy.
Holmes By artintheblood, "Holmes". By random chance, one of my least favorite of the icons by this excellent icon-maker. I have several of Wimsey and Watson. This one of Watson I use for all writing craft posts. Oh dear By lostgirlslair, "oh dear". Very handy icon. I use it a lot.
research By me, "research". Used to tag posts and comments where I'm doing research. Watcher light By snowdrifted, from the set of icons done for last year's summer_of_giles, one per episode. Keywords are "Watcher light", in part because I re-use keywords as much as possible so posts and comments from the past don't dengerate down to my default icon eventually. I use this when I wish to imply that the burdens of Watcher-hood (or other) are isolating. Isolation in general.
prophecy From the same set by snowdrifted, "prophecy". In preparation for when I'll use it posting part 1 of "Thusia". Yeah, I put it up a couple of months ago, and yes, planning ahead for the story. Mock me if you will. Xander sexy By 10000_pixels, "Xander sexy". Bare chest, "take me now". Because I have been writing a bunch of Xandery things recently.
Giles/Buffy library By 10000_pixels, "Giles/Buffy library". I'm not entirely satisfied with this one. I've had several icons using this tag. Still looking for the perfect image for it. Giles/Xander 2 By 10000_pixels, "Giles/Xander 2". I know, brilliant tag, but it means I can cycle icons in and out without fussing too much about precise content. I like the text on this one. Makes me giggle.
