Iconic Meme
gacked from just about everyone...
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.

passion flower This is a photo I took in my back garden of my passion flower, the one year when it carried on producing flowers long after the fruit had ripened. It's pretty unusual to see pictures that show both, and I have authorised various commercial uses of this photo. I've never asked for money though. The actual photo is a tiny cheat in that I couldn't contrive to get the flower in just the right place by mere winding of the plant, so I picked it and fastened it on before taking the shot. I took several shots but this was the best, and was the best photograph I took that year. This is my default.
wobbly gif of coffee beans This is a 'wobble gif' (viewer-free 3d picture) of some coffee beans. Actual coffee beans, it's a cha-cha picture taken with my Pentax OptioS, which has excellent macro. I did several wobbly icons for people; this one was for me but I rarely use it.
JJ from the Oysterband and me with badly drawn Santa Hats This is quite complicated. The original icon is a photo of me and John Jones, the lead singer from Oysterband, taken after one of the Bush Hall gigs at which The Big Session Vol 1 was recorded. I'm being a bit of a groupie here [Greek chorus: No Shit, Sherlock]. But it then got defaced as part of the Santa Hats meme, where badly drawn santa hats are added to existing icons, and this icon is the result.
The Sultan's Elephant This is a photo of the Sultan's Elephant, the giant mechanical elephant that delighted London earlier this year. My tag for this is oliphaunt.
Alison getting dunked This is a photo of me taken at <plokta.con> 2, which happened over the Queen's Golden Jubilee weekend. The hotel had a fair on the bank holiday, and dunked the hotel manager. When they were done with him, I got dunked several times in aid of, I imagine, fan funds. The first two times were pretty good fun but eventually I got very cold and had to be revived with brandy.
Alison with a scary looking hook This is a photo of me with pirate hat and hook from <plokta.con> 3. I don't use it often; I thought I'd use it when irritated but it's just too scary.
Bush:the US's greatest natural disaster I did this for, I think, supergee. I do think it's a terribly funny found image (I didn't find the image, I just shrank it legibly), but I doubt I'd ever use this myself.
chiyogami design Detail from my first attempt at a chiyogami design using traditional elements but with my own art. I was actually pretty pleased with the way it came out. I do have plans both to do more chiyogami, but also to print this off and then touch it up with a gold gel pen before using it on ATCs; which was the original plan for DIY chiyogami in the first place.

I think there's something dodgy in your entry that is breaking friends lists.

I don't load images onto the Friends view, and I'm fine.

sorry, cut tag added now.

I've used that Bush image - thanks - and I personally suspect that it was done entirely intentionally by the caption writer :-)

I'm also getting a broken Friends page.

I am also getting a broken Friends page....

an LJ cut would probably help.

It was indeed for me. Thanks again.

This post buggers up my friends page too.

Oh, so it's Alison has broken the Friends(tm)(not real friends; don't use these as substitutes for Quakers) page and Alison who will have to fix it?

Wanders off then...

Yes, the quick way to spot who broke your Friends page is usually, when it's buggered, there will be a "comments" link at the very top of your FP, seemingly unattached to anything else. If you click that link to comment, it will take you to the culprit whose entry is doing the deed. I don't know why it always works out that way, but it's been totally consistent in my experience.
