I don't know what the "I love turtles" voice is Kitkat?

Tiggerman, nope but I do have lots of my own pictures, mainly with me in them (as some members of the board have seen on the chat function before) haha!

I just love animals really, especially farm animals, they're funny, I especially like goats because they are clever, inquisitive, naughty and cheeky, just like me :D

My favourites thus far in this thread are kate's, vicky's and bex's.

I chose my avatar as on all other forums it's a twilight picture and I thought that was too immature for clinpsy :wink: :roll:

I think I asked this question of the forum during my research... I'll see if I can dig it out.

My avatar is me (albeit in weeble form). I do wear a bowler hat, I have a fine muskateer moustache and the Irish and British flags behind denote my historical nationalities. The monocle is a personal semiotic representation to remind me when I am posting that I need to keep both eyes open (and hence not be so one-eyed).

It is a picture of a Blue Cat. The third such I think. The name I stole from someone else on another forum when I changed my user name for anonymity purposes.

Mines a print by Chris Bourke called 'storm in a teacup' unsurprisingly! I just love his art and have a few pieces at home. I also LOVE TEA so this was vaguely related...?

1) I love Betty. Not sure why.
2) Betty's hair sticks out in mad directions with little kinks at the end, like mine.
3) From neck to toes, I exactly resemble Betty.
4) She's singing (see username... I'm sure we have a similar "tell me about your username" thread hanging around here somewhere).

One of the above statements is not, actually, true. No prizes will be given...

This thread is excellent!

My avatar is a lotus flower because they are my lucky symbol and remind me of yoga, which is very important to me (I am a yoga teacher). They represent the idea of good things coming from bad (flowers growing out of the mud) - for me that means doing my psychology degree and changing career after a soul destroying period of time working in academic publishing.

Lotuses flowers are also associated with Buddhism where the flower represents the purity of body, spirit and mind floating above the desires of attachment and desire, something I aspire to but mostly fall short of (damn you new shiny things that I want like red glittery shoes and all the books).

Also they are most pretty :)

I liked the wit in mine. I also love telling people "YOOOU'VE CHANGED!" for comic value!

gelb = yellow (in German)
Though no real thought went into it. Typed yellow into google images and viola! :D
