Of course anyone may try it if they have a mind to.

No, I don't want your sympathy
The fugitives say that the streets aren't for dreaming now
Manslaughter dragnets and the ghosts that sell memories
They want a piece of the action anyhow
Go, waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me

You have done well, my dear! And yes, I still want to be your friend. ^_^

You know, your icon, at certain moments, reminds me of a pair of pants I have (which I'm wearing today, no less) - a grey/black/white leopard print.

1. Elaborate on your default icon.

My current icon is Marjane Satrapi's drawing of herself from her graphic novel series. I have her up there in celebration of the full length animated film based on this series coming to the US on December 25th. I wish there were more women comic artists like Marjane Satrapi; she is strong minded and gets a lot of emotional mileage out of a neat, simple way of drawing.
