Whose Avatar do you stop for?

OK, is there anyone else who stops halfway through a thread just to wait for Raven VII's avatar to do its thing, then laugh and carry on?

First time I saw it, I thought, "now there's a naff looking 'tar", then, after looking shifty for a moment it .. (I'll leave this out so newbies can experience for themselves)... and I fell over laughing.

So - who elses Avatar do you stop for.

edesignuk's ever changing, ever the same fixation?

Who else?

Yeah, much the same here. I love edesign's, Raven VII's and Mr Andersons'. But where's yours CanadaRAM? ;) How about a maple leaf made out of memory chips?

Heh, working on it. But I just got home after working since 8AM and it's just gone midnight... soon, real soon.
Problem is, the bar is set so high already...

Well as most people probably do, I usually check edesignuk's avatar for the weekly photo of Keira, that and wdlove's animated finder icon with OS X genie effect.

I remember a lot of people's avatars, but those are the one's I like to watch :D

Yeah, I'm quite a fan of yours. It's from Shrek II, right? I'm always interested in what makes someone decide what their 'tar is, because it's kind of like their self-assigned face for MacRumors. So is there any reason for Puss-in-boots, just out of interest?

i love avatars. i stop for mr anderson's, nermal's, i used to get confused by wdlove's when it would be at the bottom of the page near my dock but now that my dock is tiny that doesn't happen anymore :p i also used to love stoid's back when it was tony the tiger and errm....who used to have the avatar with the storm trooper dancing in a parking lot? loved that one. i must admit i really like my own :eek: but my favorite is prolly iGary's ever-changing Jobs avatar. :D

edit: w00t! 1000 posts! *parties*
double edit: actually it's 1004 but i just now noticed im a 65816
edit x3: my 'tar lost some awesomeness for the 65816 edition but that's ok

OK, I've got a temporary one up.

Actually, a mountain goat is pretty accurate: dumb as a sack of hammers but willing to butt heads with anyone, anytime.

Yup, that's me. :p

Because he's cute, and that was the cutest look of the movie.

And there are several that I like, but I can't remember whom they belong to.

I always look at edesign's to see which Keira is up, I spent months trying to figure out who the guy was in Homer's, I LOVE Raven's.... :D

Now that is the really interesting question... some just look nice, but others tell a little story.

Damn, I always thought it was some red-head guy with cute eyes.

Maybe I'm not really a queer bent fool after all. :p
Isabella definitely looks a little androgynous in that shot. But she proved beyond any doubt that she's a woman in that movie...

I don't really "stop" for anyone's 'tar. I just use them to quickly identify people. I've found that if you get used to a person with a certain 'tar, when they change it, their posts just don't seem the same. Ya, I'm weird like that...

But on another note... I chose my avatar because, well, it's CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS!!!!

I hope that's not the case, otherwise I may need to re-think mine. :p :D

They're like mini-brands. You mess them with at your peril... :eek: :D
