What's the meaning of...

The other night, I started putting cute animal icons next to the links I actively visit. It was more a personal experiment for me since I like fooling around with creating graphics. Unfortunately, some bloggers who have my msn as well, kept insisting, 'Noooooo, you don't normally do things without reason... There must be a hidden meaning why you put these icons'.

One word.... sigh.... so it appears I must explain the course of my actions:

  • I started out with only blue flies for everybody. They are easy to draw. Originally, I only pasted this icon to everybody's link.
  • Then I got bored. (Yes, you've heard these first two lines before). OK, let's differentiate the guys and the girls. I'll give the guys some flies. I think I'll use a cat for the girls. I thought a cat is easy to draw. A few circles and some triangles. As for the colors, I used a stereotype. Pink for the girls. So a pink pussycat. And for your information when I think of pussycat, I do NOT think of the modern day butchered twisted obscene meaning associated with the word 'pussy'. I was thinking more of the innocent days of nursery rhymes, remember poetry lines such as 'Pussycat, Pussycat, where have you been'.
  • Hmm, looking at it, I thought, 'Still not enough color'. Here I had my first mischievous thought. I must apologize to those names I have 'chickenified' - . In online games, we usually have a chick icon to represent the noobs or inexperienced players. He he, I have played online games with both of them: DOTA and Ragnarok Online. They are hardly noobs. It's just a fun gesture to add more color to my blog. : - P
  • Being the naturally demanding person I was, I was still unsatisfied with the amount of color on my blog. Hmm, let's give the older... *cough*, let me rephrase that... more 'matured' guys on my blog a different icon. Hmm, two doctors, a PhD candidate and a mountain man... Doctor = Doc ..., what graphic.... After playing around, I was wondering can I actually draw a dog's face that small. Well, it is actually quite possible... or a pig for that matter. (Thanks for the pun, Jimbo)
LOL.. so that was it. No elaborately contrived meanings... Disappointed? Well, I like to make fellow bloggers happy. Everybody is a winner. So slowly, I'm gonna be customizing icons for everyone here. And it's not going to be that miserable small animal face thingy you see there. Ahh, so many icons, so little time... *rubbing hands in glee*

Thanks for the explanation Jonzz. You're a good man Charlie Brown. It was gettin' to be seriously ugly in the room people wanting to be pink kitty cats and all. I also noticed IAN has a black eye. I'm assuming somebody punched IAN and the reason the flies EYES are so big is they're stoned out of their minds? I'm so tilted, I feel like I need a V8. LOL!

annie: Ha, ha, ha, so what kind of icon would you like? I can't really think of one. Hey, it's hard to draw but it's fun.

Annie said...

Oh NOoooo,I like being a cute pink kitty cat :D .. better than being a ms. piggy pig. Mmmm... How about little orphan annie? with big afro curly red air and white eyeballs..LOL! That sounds scary! LOL! Nobody will ever visit my blog!

I like what you chose. You like your guitar guy on mine? I figured since you say you like playing. I'd find a grand piano for Monty, but don't have one of those smilies.

Annie said...

Oh, you gonna get another tagboard? I miss leaving you vulgar comments and cussing and making fun of Monty (aka LM) and his wild ways.

Jonzz: I want a poohbear icon.

ian said...

Yeah now that Annie mentioned it, are you insinuating that I ought to get my left eye punched by others? That's very mean of you, Jon... Hahaha!

Jonzz said...

ian: lol, that's Annie, not me. I wouldn't dream of it.

poohbearee: seriously, don't be so pooh-shy.

annie: mission accomplished.
