Icon Tip of the Day

No matter how tempted you may be, do not EVER use this as your icon on MySpace™, Xanga, Blogger, IM, whatever. Do NOT.

Steph, do you think this is a cat ready to whack a pesty dog?

I think he could hold his own in a run-in with Pablo. :-)

Let me just say that when this icon pops up and one happens to be listening to "Loser" by Beck at the same time, and said song's beat happens to be timed amazingly well to the movement of said cat, the results are pretty funny. Next I'm going to try watching the cat to the tune of "Love is like a Butterfly" by Dolly Parton. Awesome.

OK, I'm jealous, because apparently said kitty is MOVING on everyone else's screen!

Yes, jMo, that is what it looks like, although he looks a little too happy for that!

Well, what can I say? "You can't write if you can't relate..."

Ok, that was hilarious. My kids liked it as well. This tip goes with the KISS philosophy of design - Keep It Simple Stupid!

Except I pray no designer ever uses that cat - simple as it may be - except as an object of ridicule.
