<--- I picked the one where I look the most bald and intimidating. Also I'm smoking so everyone knows how cool I am.

I'll have to decide if I wish to inflict the horror of myself on this BBS again or not. I probably will, you all have it coming.

Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

I need to find a decent picture of myself somewhere... just imagine a cross between J. Allen and Emher and you're about 50% of the way there already.


But I can't simply part with Dancing Guy though... [Yes you can - everyone]

A cuddly bear in a starfleet uniform?

Sounds intriguing...

Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

Done. I'm bandwagoning.

That was more difficult than picking a normal avatar. It's hard to find a picture of me where I'm not wrestling, topless of rat arsed.

I narrowed it down to these and then picked the only picture I've seen of me smiling (whilst reasonably sober).

Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

Okay, my week starts now

For seven days - here's me (and my elephant, a mug of tea and a book). Since I don't ever look particularly good in photos, and never when I try to smile, here's one taken unawares by mr trampledamage testing his new camera. For the record, it's from about four months ago

Well I did it but I would rather have my cat butt avatar, I feel quite naked and vulnerable without it. So I will have to just place it in my posts.

You got the wrong 50% there,


Although intriguingly I have been described by some work colleagues as "cuddly". Even though they've clearly never cuddled me...

Oh, come on, you look fabulous, K'ehleyr!

The reason why I chose this image for my avatar is that it's one of the few pics where I don't completely hate my face. It was done by a friend of mine who's studying photography and did some photos of my band. I like the lighting on this one. But my face ... looks weird. I'm working on something different for the avatar.

Oh, I know just what you mean. But I'm glad you made the effort.

Honestly, that's a very nice pic. I'm so glad you did that. It's good to see all your faces. I will try to memorize them so that I can think of the face behind the post when this is over.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Please don't do it if you really feel uncomfortable. This is just for fun. I don't want you to feel bad, really.

Ok, I thought I'd join in too. It's a couple months old, I'm too stressed looking right now to take a new one.

Re: "That's Me!" Avatar Week? (Silly idea inside.)

I have used my cat butt avatar (or variations of it) for so long I now heavily idenify with it which is quite pathetic really

But I guess I can manage without it for a week.
