Well, my avie isn't so much freaking me out as catching me unawares - I'll be skipping through a thread and all of a sudden I notice me from nearly twenty years ago looking straight at me....

That's it -- it's seeing oneself unexpectedly. It's disconcerting in a fun way.
Exactly. It's like suddenly spotting yourself in a reflection.

It is fun though - and since I'm having so much fun seeing everyone else, only fair that I share the pain

I was in a very dark and dismal place in the days where I walked the Earth with that haircut (and shave).

It's kind of good to see that things have changed.

Well, I guess I can understand that. It's definitely strange to see oneself in these threads, yeah. But I think I'm getting used to it. The thought of so many people participating now is rather encouraging, I might add.

Good, that's reassuring. I was afraid this could bother you too much. It's good to hear that you're having fun, too.

Ha, I meant to ask you about that haircut. Did you lose a bet or something?

Hmmm... I don't know. I kinda like my anonymity. Plus I like maintaining an air of mystery about me.

Maybe I'll meet you halfway -- perhaps I'll use a picture of myself incognito, i.e. one in which I'm wearing a costume I used when I was acting on-stage. Or maybe I'll give in and show the real me. I'm not sure. Convince me!

BTW, looking good everyone!

Nah, I wish!

I had been very depressed for a while when family and friends teamed up on me and tried to have me committed, which I was not ready for. Then they came one day and told me how things were going to go down.

I felt like ½ a man from the things they did to me back then so I thought it only natural that it showed...

It seemed most everyone did when I first joined -- they assumed the username was in reference to DS9's Quark. I still get it every once in a while.

I'm in. Can't let go of the sombrero, of course, but otherwise this is 100% real life.

BTW I'm trying to grow 80's Goth bang because I'm bored and I feel like it, also because I might have been listening to The Cure and Bauhaus quite often lately.
