    So, what does your avatar mean and why did you choose it?

    Not sure mine has a deeper meaning other than being the drink that sustains life itself. I chose it because I love coffee......A LOT!

    So, how's 'bout you and your avatar?

    Thanks readsalot for the good idea.

    This was asked and answered in the other avatar thread already, but lets see what the response is.

    Well, since our avatars are liable to change eventually, I'll just say I chose this pic of the little blonde kid with an attitude because he/she reminds me of myself when I was little.

    Mine is a painting I made fifteen years ago, it still hangs in my son's room. Why did I choose it? I'd used it on one of my book covers, 'Dearie, the Deer' so while promoting the book, I changed my avatar pic to match and kept it on because I like it. Truly. No narcissism involved.

    I don't think mine needs any explaining, really.

    I have always wanted goldfish, I set up tanks multiple times, of all sizes and have never been able to keep them alive. I can keep any other type of fish, cichlids are now mostly what I keep. Even made a koi pond but the raccoons ate the koi :( so I have decided to keep a gold fish avatar instead.

    Er. Ok. I used to use the word 'bananas' a lot. In my high-school and college days. Sorta a way to stand out at the time, being the funny guy, as way to blend in, I guess, and to get cheap giggles from the girls. I found that it's really an easy way to get people to ease up, so I sorta stuck to the shtick. I don't use the word 'bananas' as often now (but I do, oh yes, even in client meetings), but I notice I do like the word 'banananize'.

    Early forum years here (and when I actually had more discretionary time), I used to dress up my avatar too here in this forum, according to the big movie of the time. I've been a Batnana, a Geisha-nana, a Willy-Wonkanana, a Supernana, Santanana. Hmm... maybe I should recycle these avatars again someday soon.

    My kids have all gone to the same church camp, and they have a song for you: The Banana Song. Dont bother asking me what the Banana Song has to do with church, the Bible, or anything else; it's just something fun they do..

    Is it another name for Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl, where she goes 'B-A-N-A-N-A-S' for no apparent reason in a song that did not at any other time allude to any sort of fruit at all?

    p.s. And how can I forget, I was Harry Potternana too!

    My current avatar relates to Hunter S. Thompson and was taken from an image I created. Here it is.
