    Avatars - Polls

    Really haven't worked much with avatars before, but have noticed that they make it much easier to remember who is who and what they typically react like.  It also helps skipping people if you don't feel much like hearing from them on one subject if they seem to be beleaguering it.  And I love some of your creative choices...as I mentioned before my favorite is the guinea pig...that is one cozy looking pig and I like the Poker Cake - could have used it for an event once.  Where did it come from, was that your wedding cake?
    So the Good Friday Poll is twofold-
    what would be your ideal avatar that best represents you
    what is the best part about havign avatars on this site.

    Thanks, something! This little guy is like my child :)

    I think the avatars make it easier to remember who's who and gives a little snapshot of their personality.

    My avatar is a picture of Lucy, so... this is it.  :)  Well, OK, to those of you who aren't Broadway freaks - it is a picture of Linda Eder, as Lucy, in Jekyll & Hyde, circa 1997.  There is no other picture I could have used.

    I think the best part is that it shows you a different side of people's personalities.  For example, I had no idea that so many people liked pigs!  And I didn't know WPP had one.

    Hi Northern - you "stole" mine - of course I am just kidding!!!  But I was indeed trying to find a proper penguin for mine - Pingo? Make sense? My nom is also because I just love penguins. In fact I have a piquing named after me at the Boston Aquarium. At least that is what they told me Pay money, we will name a penguin after you. Yeah - right! 
    Well, I am looking into some other possibilities. 
    Enjoy your avatar - it is lovely. - Pingo

    Btw - where are you from originally?

    Mine's my bridal bouquet.  I thought of having my wedding set, but thought it too gauche (no offense to anyone's whose is).

    The best part for me is being able to find my own posts more easily so that I can see if anyone responded directly to me afterwards.  Posters stand out; it's nice.

    Mine's Kuromi by Sanrio, the Hello Kitty people. She's always up to mischeif, but she's not evil. Plus, I like the little pink skull on her jester hat. I buy so many things just because they have skulls on them. If I was a cartoon character, I'd be her.
    I was going to have a picture of a pink cat, but that would be too literal.

    I like the avatars because you cal tell posters apart at a glance.

    Happy Easter!

    The poker cake is just a picture I took from our bakery's website, Damicis. BUT we are going to do a poker-themed cake for the rehearsal dinner. :-)

    My avatars will probably change a lot...I get bored easily. Or maybe I have multiple personalities. :-)

    Mine is a pic of the only flowers we've gotten from the 6 hydrangea bushes we planted in the backyard. One perfect bloom. I figured I better take a picture of it, in case we never get another bloom. Laughing

    Hi Woodie, we had the same problem with our Hydrangeas. Only one single flower, but it was gorgeous.
    Then I found out, that Hydrangeas only bloom on old wood - and I had cut mine down pretty well. Last fall I let them be, so I am hoping for better results this year. I already see buds. Just crossing my fingers - P

    I am a craft making person and find I use buttons a lot and purple.  I was going to go with a penguin but it was taken! The Horrors! (note that is said with sarcasm) :)  I might change mine up from time to time depends if it is worth the effort or not.

    And Fruit Salad grab an image from Google Images here is the result string for "fruit salad" it made me hungry.

    I very much like the avatars.  A few of the photographs people have used do not translate well, IMNSHO, to the small format, and I find them hard to see.
