Okay, what's your favorite avatar, and who owns it, if you know?

MY WINNER: Tinkerbell, getting her butt stuck in a keyhole, owned by Glenda.

RUNNER UP: Worm with glasses, owned by Chunky.

HONORABLE MENTION: Howling Wolf under full moon, owned by Greenwolf. Because it was the very first one I saw when I joined so long ago--sentimental reasons.

Next!

What's the criteria here? Who are these self-appointed judges? I stole mine from somewhere, cropped it, enhanced the colors, and uploaded from PC. I demand extra points for effort. And for changing it plus my Location caption each month to avoid complacency. Next time give me more notice and I'll upload a semi-naked babe, that's always guaranteed a vote from the peanut gallery. Does no one reward innovation any more? That's what's wrong with this planet. Small wonder the smart people are pulling up stakes and moving to Mars!

She's definitely a hottie...er, it is to say, in addition to her many other attributes, her appearance is not unpleasant to look upon, but I would never objectify her by calling too much attention to the shape of her near-perfect face, with a smile that could melt even the coldest of hearts, and eyes whose depth can hypnotize...I better stop while I'm behind. :)
