    I'm Too Lazy to Think of An Appropriate Title Right Now.

     My avatar changes (very rarely, but it does change), but it is usually of my current obsession or of a character I believe represents me. My first avatar was of Elphaba, from Wicked, because I identify with her and am odd, fierce, intelligent, not particularly popular, and...

    Well, Obviously.

    My avatar is Kim Pine from the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. The reason I chose it is because I have many times where I want to shape my fingers into a gun, hold it up to my head and go "BLAM!" Mostly because of stupid, ignorant people.

    I Know I Know...

    as much as all of you would love the idea of a hula dancing monkey tip-tapping away on the computer somewhere, it just isn't so... alas I am merely a woman... who likes monkeys... is from Hawaii and actually danced hula... so I thought it fit me... sorry to disappoint...

    Even If It Were My Picture

    I would still say this. It still would not be me, rather just an image of a very small part of me. A picture may be worth a thousand words but that is not very much when you think about it. We are many many times more than that. We are millions and millions if not billions of...

    I Am Not Pauley Perette

    More's the pity. Don't add me just because I 'look nice'. Have you ever used the Internet before? Hardly anyone uses their own photo for an avatar, especially on a mainly anonymous site.

    My Cartoon Buddy

    Hopefully that would've been slightly obvious. The little girl could be a cartoon version of me though, if she curled her hair and hacked it to her chin. Then, she'd look like me.

    I'm Not a Multi-colored Eye

    I am obviously not a multi-colored eye, nor is that multi-colored eye mine. It's just an eye I found while google-ing one day. I collect pictures of eyes, artistic looking eyes, anyway & this is my favorite. I just love it. I've recently considered putting up my picture, only...

    When I first came to EP, I used a picture of myself as my avatar and also had a screen-name that very much resembled a version of my own name. Yet, the pictures of me now remain in private albums that can only be viewed by my circle, as I was more interested in seeing...

    While my avatar is certainly not me, it does reflect my moods I spend a lot of time finding something that "speaks" to me. I could never use even a blurred image of me. It is not private enough and only those in my circle get that privilege.Another reason I am careful who I let...

    I Am Not A Sign.

    Although, I like my avatar and agree with it's message, no ,I am not a black and white billboard sign. I already tried putting my real pic here once. What a mistake that was! So, again in case you missed it I am not my avatar, but I am my avatar's message.

    No. It's Sylvia Plath. I don't claim a shred of her brilliance. I love her, of course, but I choose her image because I balance on a razor beam of self destruction.

    The Truth

    The truth is... I am not my avatar. My avatar's subject is actually this nice lil lion cub named Simba. He's had success in the acting field, I've heard. A nice kid. But not me.

    An Easy Mistake To Make.....but.....

    That isn't me. It's not even close. Ask yourself, honestly, how many 41-45 year old guys do you know that looks like that? If you look at the picture and juxtapose this against my profile, you'll notice the beautiful female face and amazing boobs. Bit of a give away. For...

    If You Look Real Hard You Won't See Me

    I just found this picture and liked it a lot.  It's pretty amazing riding on a two lane country rode and for as far as the eye can see there is a line of cyclist in both lanes.
