Yep, as in the good old days. Here's a thread where you post the story behind your avatar. Why do you use it? Are you really as sexy as your avatar? Etc, etc.

I'm rather boring*. My avatar is me, quite frankly. I don't have such a hat, and my sunglasses are way cooler, but apart from that, that's me.

(the sunglasses and hat where borrowed)

*for a given value of boring. The value in this case is, of course, "cool". Or possibly "sexy".

Mine is, well... it's Arnold Schwartzenegger, from a Japanese commercial of some sort.

I like it, because he looks so totally freaky. Weird commercial, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOjEFOViUHE
<@Torp> I have seen your melted pussy!

It's me drunk and on hallucenegenics, i don't know why i have a chicken flying in the background, or why it looks like outside, i was inside and have no pets :/
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

I generally hate avatars. Which goes some way to explain my current one.

Well, my current one is just a llama, he looks funny, made me laugh, and still makes me laugh. I mean, is there anything better than a llama with afro? Thats pretty much why I have the "I'd hit it" under it, cause its just that darn sexy :O.

But but, usually I use one other picture, http://img98.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dreamingthecosmosiz9.jpg I dont know why that picture hit me, but I think I feel like that person, just staring at the world going on, dreaming about what I am going to do. I really am that kind of person, and sometimes it sucks cause I cant stop dreaming and actually do something about the things, but lately I have been trying to act more and dream less o_O. But yeah, thats me and thats how things are and thats how it has always been I guess :o.

And by the way, dont like that picture that much in that form, I like it more in the avatar size :/

During my stay at these fine forums I noticed that some of you seemed to have difficulty telling when I was being sarcastic. So to compensate for your stupidity I decided to take it upon myself to create a way to convey sarcasm on the internet despite what I saw as obvious clues pre-dating the avatar. And after a whole 2 minutes in Fireworks, this wonderful little sign was born to let you all know that, despite the fact that it should have been blindingly obvious that I was being sarcastic, what I was saying was in a sarcastic tone and in no way meant to be taken seriously.

I have such a high opinion of you all :P
