Koldie, bless his heart, gave me enough geek gold to get an avatar. I will have a picture by my name and will be a "real" geek.

But, now I have a dilemma. First, what to choose as my avatar? Any suggestions?

Second, does this mean I have to return the favor?

Please, do not define "favor" gulp

I can't believe it's taken so long for Koldie to give you the loot.

But choosing an Avatar isn't easy. Try a couple and see what looks good.

Take care Dame K.

Choosing an avatar may be the most important decision a young person makes in his or her life. It is recommended that you speak to a priest, a lawyer and a fishmonger - though not necessarily in that order - before you take the plunge.

Remember, you can always edit your Avatar in case you like something else better.

Well, I hope you won't be insulted if I suggest the basics. A common way to pick an avatar is to start with a favorite thing and then pick something interesting to represent that thing. Alot of avatars are bits of art from favorite games, but it certainly doesn't have to be a game.

Congratulations!

I did just have a random thought... since you said you're a vampire, how about one of the absolutely ADORABLE vampires from Dicke Luft in der Gruft, AKA Dawn Under?

Congratulations, DK! What a nice hubby you have.

I think a cuddly polar bear would be a good avatar, or one of those baby seals. Awwwww. Or maybe a picture of Koldfoot just to confuse people! laugh

I think a picture of a foot would be nice. Not necessarily a cold or kold one, or even any particular foot.

Not that I should be listened to based on my current twirling clock avatar meeple

Ah yes, the gaining of an avatar, it is such a wondrous feeling. Obviously, your avatar should be something Ohio State U. Buckeyes related. It would be really keen.

Avatar schmavatar. I was COMPLETELY CONVINCED that my Avatar would be something to do with Birmingham City (HenCe bluenose) and here I am with a mandelbrot fractal. Just pick something, try it, chuck it away and try something else. Keep going til until you
a) Find the one you like
b) Get bored
But as with a comment from another journal, please avoid animated ones, I just find them distracting.

Actually, if it's going to be a foot, it should be this one:

After much thought (and headache looking for my forum formerly known as a journal), I finally have my avatar. Thank you Koldfoot for the gold to make this happen. And thanks to Anye for the vampire suggestion. Who better than Vampira? A classic hottie in a kind of morbid way. Sorry to disappoint those hoping for an Alaskan "theme" (we sorta did the theme things with our kid's names). No warm and fuzzy stuff going on here.

Now what to change it too when the vampire thing wears off??

Torgo, from Manos: Hands of Fate. Stick with the B-movie thang.

Congrats.

Loved the Addams Family. Morticia was as hot as June Cleaver (per a previous perverse post). Show more cleavage? I'm more of a leg man myself but I didn't cough up the avatar money.
