    tell me about it.
    what does it say? what does it mean? why did you choose it?

    and, if you have none, why not?




    mine, me, this morning, because i'm vain.

    The Fight Club is about penguins?

    Mine is a picture of my torso. I figure it is more memorable than a generic avatar (especially when the same avatar is used by several members) and may draw interest to my posts and to my gallery.

    Well, I chose it because it's me.

    That's pretty much it, lol.

    Because I like the Guyver :tongue:

    The subtext of the story is he is a pubescent boy who feels small and vulnerable/isn't confident etc. But when he transforms into the Guyver he is bigger and stronger and able to save the people he cares about which he might not be able to do if he was Sho.

    Such is what I gather. The Guyver looks really cool! :cool:

    My avatars are always pieces of me. Pretty straight forward.

    Mine is Aang, last of the Airbenders.

    I love his outlook on life. He has the fate of the world on his shoulders and yet he still finds time to be, and enjoy being, a goofy kid. His inner child is well cared for.

    I also love that the premise of his quest is that he must master all four elements (air, fire, water, earth) in order to bring peace to the world. It speaks to the idea of being balanced and well rounded. Whole.

    Plus he so cute!

    Always forced to make choices where either outcome usually ends up bad.

    I look like Ed Norton...especially his character in American History X. When that movie was still popular, strangers used to come up to me and ask if I was "him"....got me laid a couple times....I'll have to tell those stories sometime.

    Mine is just a pair of sexy jumping breasts, wich usually tends to distract some of the members here (I've gotten "complaints", lol).

    The reason for it? I like that gif., plain and simple (admit it, some, if not most, of you do too) =P

    With great thankns to Pecker!
    My avvy is a representation of my personality and is the common Woodlouse. Find one under some decaying wood, study it and you pretty much have summed it.

    As Halloween is approaching, I decided she would be an appropriate selection.

    I also like characters that are isolated and set apart from human beings, yet still feel tied to their humanity. And if I were ever to be a chick, I'd be a smokin'-hot redhead. :wink:


    Edit:
    Yay, my 15th post! :22:
