I've just spent the past 5 minutes staring at Valier's avatar, it's very hypnotic! This is how my mind is now:

*swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly swirly*

I don't know if anyone else can see it, but there appears to be a dotty orange boarder around Valier's whirly doom thing. It's distracting.

Although, all this hypnosis could make an interesting article in The Downer.

I can see it too Hookbill, but you find that as you stare at the swirls, the outline disappears!

I'd like to bring up Elempi's Avator. I know that he's had it forever, but it's become something like a staple for me. It's kind of funny, really, that I shoud like it so. . . it's made up of quiet colors, almost nondescript, but I've really gotten to like it. It's Smith of Wooton Major coming into Faerie, illustrated by Pauline someone, the same person who illustared Chronicles of Narnia. Quite a nice, calming avator.

It is Joan of Arc. It really bums me that I can not find any other good pictures of her. This one is actually from a movie. I've never seen it, but I did read Mark Twain's book about her (Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc - you all should definitely read it) and it really moved me. She was an amazing girl and that book protrayed her and her life really well. I often wish I could be like her, but the funny thing is - Mom used to call me her little Joan. My name's not Joan, but evidently, I reminded her of Joan of Arc. At the time, it bothered me, because Joan died an awful death and I couldn't understand why, but now it makes me rather proud.

Anyway, there's a much longer explenation than you asked for about my avator.

Bananas in Pyjamas was a television show here back when we were young, Lhuna. They had a very cool theme tune:

"Bananas in pyjamas are coming down the stairs,
Bananas in pyjamas are coming down in pairs,
Bananas in pyjamas are chasing teddy bears,
'cos on Tuesdays they all try to catch them unawares
!"

"Bananer i pyjamas på trapperne er klar

I was to old to watch it. . . but I did get the impression that it was quite ridiculess.
I remember some people making a "show" called "narcotic addicts in pyjamas". . . It sounded better in Danish. "Narkomaner i pyjamas"

I must admit, I'm finding several of the very restless animated avatars so annoying to the eyes that it's hard to make myself read what those members have written. It can't be the purpose of an avatar to make others skip your post, can it?

Hahahaha, I love Strongbad!

Mine is totally the best though, because it's detail of Titania Sleeping by Kinuko Craft, and I used to love her when I was little. Actually, I still love her. She's so whimsical.

Believe it or not, Kath...I've actually watched that show when I was around 8 or so. Filipino version in the morning, original English in the afternoon.

"Sina B1 at B2 laging magkasama
Sa lahat ng oras sila ay masaya
Kaibigang oso and kalaro nila
Sila ay sama-sama kahit mayroong problema!"


That's very far from a direct translation of the English lyrics - for one it's more positive.

Also, that's probably where the whole daga thing in our family started, if you'll remember one of the characters.

*sigh* Memories...

EDIT: Haha, Valier, funny avvie! I've been wondering for the longest time whether Edd (yes, the one with two D's) is a boy or a girl.

Elf-Warrior's avator is excellent! When I first saw it, I just laughed, because when one read's 'elf-warrior' one really doesn't think Sam Gamgee. . .and it yet it is such an excellent reference to the book.

Oh, and I too like Valier's new avatar... It's actually cute...

It is for that reason (and others) that I got rid of my old changey coloury one. Not that I ever write anything interesting enough to cause annoyance with distraction.

I do not think that your avy was one of those annoying ones. . .at least I don't think so, I actually quite liked it. You hardly noticed the changing of colours and when you did, it was more like: "How neat" rather than "How annoying".

Well, I did also want to advertise the Downer Newspaper.
