Be nice. In looking around, I notice some very interesting ones.

What my Avatar says about me? For one, it's the only age appropriate picture I could find. The person who drew mine for me I never met, but he read my stories. That was 30 years ago. I'm still trying to decide if that was his impression of me, or my characters.

From left to right (That's what they all say. It doesn't apply here) Floo, the 8 foot Dodo bird is the one in the middle. The fly is the one in the air. That's why they call him the fly. The one on the ground is my alter-ego, the flea. the 23rd generational flea, who skipped school the day they taught evolution and became the world's smartest flea.

But what does my Avatar say about me? It says - let me statter and stummer for a minute or two. It says I have no imagination of my own. how about you?

What does your Avatar say about you?

I adore Assassin's Creed, am addicted to the Revelations trailer and can't wait 'til November.

I'm pretty basic.

That the makeover 'reality' shows still have at least one more challenge that they'll never overcome.


That I'm finally old enough to scrap some of the rules


That I might still be looking for some gold

Mine, too!

And that I'm sexy!

Unless you count the signature avatar. And then I attend cosplay events and wonder why I can't get a date.

My friend drew mine for me.

She did it in green, as it's my favorite color.

I think the blonde woman is supposed to be me. Like her, I'm blonde and wear my hair up most of the time. I'm a little worried that she looks fairly snotty, but I probably am, too, so that's OK. ;)

She's reclining on a fractal. I'm an engineer, IRL, so I guess that's appropriate. ;)

So I guess it says, "I'm a snotty, blonde engineer who likes green". ;)

Button is a good "handle" for a girl. It is not a sexual remark. I remember Red Buttons, the actor. It suited him.

Who writes all that stuff on television anyway. Must be a bunch of screen writers. Most of my friends are funnier than that and it's not in your face either. I really identified with Mork from Ork. By the time Robin Williams grew up, I realized how disturbed he really was. (There's a joke in there somewhere)

Let's all pitch in and get some help over here. Not having an avatar is like being homeless. Doesn't matter if you're Democrat or Republican, Labor Party, Tea Party, or Green Party - Let's all throw a party and get some help so this person can have his very own Avatar.

As any right thinking individual should.

Your Avatar says that? I even looked at the third sparkle on the left and . . . I need an interpreter.

If you grin a thin grin from your chin again, it'll only be a while before you smile a mile awhile and I'd rather see you smile a mile awhile than see you grin a thin grin again anyday, anytime. (Say that thee times fast - You'll be exhausted. but say it front of a mirror - [make sure it's private or people will think you need a white gown] and you just might even see a grin slowly spreading somewhere between your ears.

My avatar is a phallic symbol. It wasn't meant to be, but that's what I have been told, over and over, until I've come to believe it myself.

Here is a bigger, harder, thrusting version so you can determine its relevance for yourself:
