What's your avatar of?
And why did you choose it?

Me: I created this colage-mix-msn displaypicture of Lindsay Armaou because I had the tools to, and I wanted an avatar for the Lindsay boards  ;D Plus, she's really cool.. she was in B*Witched, after all!

My avatar is the second picture on my computer of Jora Domoslai. I have about 15 more, but this is one of the few in colour, and it's just so wonderful.. *nods*

I might change the picture sometime soon to a more recent one, though.

My avatar is of the powerful Ultimate Warrior who was in the World Wrestling Federation from 1988 to 1992. He made an impact on the sport with his psychopathic high energy style. Beating Hulk Hogan for the WWF title at Wrestlemania 6 was the highlight of his career.

He came back at Wrestlemania 12 and beat HHH in under a minute. He then left the federation again. He went to WCW for a one time match with Hogan at Halloween Havoc and now, because he commands such huge fees to wrestle, federations with little cash are reluctant to purchase his services.

Ah. I wondered who was in your avatar, Meli. I remember B*Witched but I don't know whether they are still going as a group. 'C'est la vie' and 'Jesse hold on' are my favourite songs of theirs.

I have been using photos I have taken myself as my avatar.  I played with the colors a bit on my current photo to make it more dramatic.

Great pics.


Mine is (of course) Julie Newmar-the original Catwoman as a way to pay homage to my namesake (and besides, some people say that I look a little like her that I take as a compliment).

I like to change mine a lot so next time this is read it may be different. But as of right now it's a picture of lloyd dobler from the 80's movie "say anything".

I chose this avatar because #1 I love the movie and #2 it's one of my favorite quotes from the movie.

I chose the Shakira avatar because 1) I like her music (especially the Laundry Service album, which I purchased almost two years ago, and 2) when I was browsing through the Avatars to select a pic, I thought it was a good picture. :)

Mine is the ever popular Rubik's Cube.
I wanted something I loved from the 80s and that would represent my life from then.

I was a competition cubist, I traveled to the various contests in my state to compete.
My personal best record Time was: 49.3 seconds a long way actually from the current record of 16.5 seconds. hehe

Have you girls watched Hamish and Andy?  Each night they have the "Lee Lin Chin Wag" (a send up of SBS's Lee Lin Chin).  She was interviewing Molly Meldrum and had a outfit decorated heavily around the collar with mirror balls.  ;D  Very stylish ;D  I was thinking BMG next big night out an outfit with mirror balls would make quite an impact!  I think it's a funny show.

For those of you who still don't know, or are new

The Lucy avatar at left, is Lucy Van Pelt, from Peanuts.  Linus' sister, tormenter of Charlie Brown (hence the "blockheads" reference under neath the avatar)  :)

The FussBudget part refers to a way she once described her crabbiness in one of the comic strips

Therefore, FussBudget + VanPelt  :)

Hey Pennsygirl,

Being from PA and a teenager in the 80s, the local radio station I listened to played the hell out of Robert Hazard and the Heroes! We're riding on that escalator of life!

Well before I moved house they were all hung in my bedroom which was painted a dark but bright purple - all of it - walls, ceilings, windows, glass, wardrobe - all of it.  And at night the moonlight would come in thru a high window and I would lay there in my own little glittery world !!  It was heavenly.  But right now they are packed up in 3 big boxes awaiting a new fate.  I was thinking of cutting them in half and glueing them to  sheets of pretty painted mdf - creating a 3d wall hanging ??

Mine is of Adam Ant, the pic was taken at a gig in around 77 or78. I had a simialar one a couple days ago, but he has a much better facial expression in the new one I think!!! I chose it b/c I love him and I love his look in the late 70s. But mostly because I love him!!

    If I really used what my nickname (that I'm not sharing) indicates,  I would be searching high and low for kermit the frog in the swamp.  AAWWWW! 
Is Pikachu killing anyone?  I just think it's the cutest "electric rodent" I've ever seen.
Anyone ready to string me up or slap me as the case may be...(thank you very much i do read previous posts.)  Even tho' Pokemon took over America, I am in the club that thinks there are redeeming qualities in these shows. There's Cooperation, competition, a clear goal that is going to be hard to attain.    Maybe i'll change it to the "Ponyta" (the flaming tailed horse). 
If I could download a picture maybe i'd consider using one of the girls on the
X-men "Evolution" team. Well, the cartoon had female characters, so I only assumed they were put into the comicbooks at some point.
