Mine is a photo I found as part of a running joke in Ingrid's blog about a year or so ago. I did a google image search of "flying alpaca," and lo and behold I found one! I liked the flying alpaca so much that I adopted it as my own It was particularly cool when I was a mod and could 'swoop' in and fix things for forum members

The reason for mine is probably obvious by now. I've also considered, at various times, using an Auburn logo (as in Auburn University) since that's how I picked my username.

I decided to keep the cross because that's really the core of my identity.

Mine is my one and only favorite comic book character Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, or JTHM. This is the best spot I've seen for more info or pictures. Anyway, he was created by the same guy that created Invader Zim. Johnny is just a little more... dark....

I've had so many Avatars over the years though. Some of my favorites have been a "goth" Jessica Rabbit, my dog in the sink getting a bath, and me.

This is so interesting... I am a pretty curious person....

Sooo.. are there any rules as far as what a person can use? I found a little penguin (my collectable) named Pookie (my nickname by my best friend -- no, I don't know why.... never asked)... but wasn't sure if I could use him or if I would be violating some law and the Pookie gods would come slap some legal thing on me.... ??
