Strange you should bring up the subject of avatars, your's is most definitely my favorite on ATS, I remember when we first exchanged words some time
last year, actually in a thread about avatars! Aha.
I loved your post, as you've a very captivating mind, and yet your avatar at the time got over looked, it was a bunch of smiley faces... If everybody
else thought the same as me, the lack of comment was due to the simple fact, there wasn't a lot to say apart from you really like smiley faces! Lol.
I noticed a short while after that, you changed to your current avatar, and I was full of envy (and still am!) Cuz its so darn awesome! For all the
reasons you have stated, it represents you are a straong, bold woman, with style, I might add!
Which of my avatars did you prefer? Evil looking "Nemi" with the sharp eyes or this one?
My avatar stories simple, and some are familiar with it, the character is from one of my favorite news paper comics, she's quite hilarious if
stoopidy, sarcasm, dorkism, and cynicism are your thing...
I changed from my "evil eyes" one, to this current one, as the staff thought I was being to "acerbic" in my posts, I thought maybe the avatar was
influencing my posts, so I opted in a for a "softer" one. Although I completely agree, my posting styles all round the place at the moment, too many
people excerpting pressure from different sides to influence how I type... I've quite forgotten how to say things naturally now, which is a shame.
Its caused me all sorts of grief having the "illuminati hand sign" and the pentagon included within it! Lol... Alas, I don't want to change them to
I did have an avatar of the real me for a brief period, simply because many people wanted to know who was behind the screen, even a few confused
fellows thought I was a man! Aha.
As you can see, I've quite quickly reverted back, as I got far more attention than makes me comfortable.
I wish I'd remained a mistery!
Anyway, quite enough rambling, another thought provoking thread Smylee!
