01:35 pm - Bottle cap icon?


I was looking around and realized I never put anything in the interests section of this journal, so I added a few things. Nothing fantastic, just that the space is no longer empty. Then I realized there are 300 icon spaces and I use only 14 of them so far. Adding one or two for hobbies won't cause trouble. Deciding on them is another matter.

One hobby or mild interest of mine is collecting bottle caps. I am not all that serious about it. I haven't been looking for any special cap, not gotten involved with trading. Just that if I happen across a crown cap, I save it. Sometimes it's something someone saved, and occasionally I'll see one left as litter, but mostly the caps are off of things I've tried. Some things I only try once, and not just for the cap!

What all this adds up to is that I think I ought to have an icon that is a picture of a bottle cap. But which one? I'd rather it be of something I'd be willing to drink, and not just to get the cap. Something I wouldn't mind trying again. There are few possibilities. It could be from water or soda, thus non-alcoholic. Or it could be a plain color cap which would be rather generic, or it be plainly from some beer.

And those have more choices: Which one? Which color? And again which one? I think I'd like something with some pattern or image, but not much text. That seems to leave out the water and sodas. Acme Ale caps might seem obvious, and don't get me wrong, Acme ales are good. I drink them occasionally when I feel like a change of pace. I just prefer porters.

Of course all the icons I have so far are bovine (most are pictures of me, after all) and maybe I should stay with that. Yet the only bovine bottle caps I know about are for Schlitz. I've never tried that, so I don't have that cap. Evidently there are a couple different colors. I only know of one fellow who says he likes Schlitz, which isn't exactly encouraging. Just how is it?

I am not being very decisive. Perhaps you can help:

I think something resembling Bert's bottle cap collection from Sesame Street would be awesome. That's all I can think of when I hear the words "Bottlecap Collection" and I loved the look his collection had.

An image of a bunch of colorful caps, none of which can be clearly seen? That might work. I wouldn't need to worry about what the caps were from that way.
