Change of image

As you may have noticed, I have decided to change my avatar from the somewhat grotesque picture of Christoper Lee's bloodstained visage to something a bit more family-friendly.

Nice to see a proper photo of you for a change. Perhaps I should update my own picture to something that has not been shamelessly - and illegally - stolen from online library comic Unshelved.

I haven't even learnt how to pronounce Avatar yet (always want to call it Atavar which seems a more natural word to me), and managing one (with the help of Mike A, I think) is as much as I can manage.  Might be stuck with a slightly blurred kiwi forever.

I may take some time to get used to your new image, Himadri.  And Gareth, yours has a nice whimsical feel that seems just right for you somehow.

Cheers, Caro.

Well Himadri and Gareth I think you are both very well represented by your avatars. Wink

Am loving that H!! It reminds me of something...I know it looks a bit like the Southpark animated characters

It s intended to be a South park type figure of myself. There are quite a few sites where you can create one of yourself - e.g. http://www.southparkstudios.com/avatar/

I do rather miss the dripping fangs and the sneer, Himadri. Sad

Don't worry Ann. I'll start a thread about Virginia Woolf and the dripping fangs will soon be back - at least in print!

Very Happy

Reactionary that I am, I preferred the old avatar.  Why does it have to be family friendly anyway?  How many nine year olds use this site? Shocked

I wish I could download (upload?) an avatar of me, but I keep failing.  
Something goes wrong every time. I suspect my PC is getting its own back for something I can't remember doing.  Michael

Mike - the photo you have is that the Winter Gardens in Blackpool in the background?
Mikeharvey

Hello Apple, Yes it's the Winter Gardens.

If Himadri has a new Avatar, why am I still seeing Christopher Lee? Smile

The avatar I had changed to was too nice, and given what a vicious, nasty person I am, I thought Sir Christopher as Count Dracula was more apprpriate.

You forgot to mention you're also a vampire.

I have come to identify Himadri with his avatar to such an extent that last Sunday when I opened The Telegraph's magazine section and saw the above photo (linked to a feature on Christopher Lee getting his BAFTA lifetime award), I thought for a split second:  "Oh, an interview with Himadri."  That's the truth.

That's great, Sandra!   Very Happy

Oh - that's brilliant!

It really is one of the greaticonic images, isn't it?
