    Default Caving to the pressure

    OK folks,

    Due to overwhelming demand, Smeagol/Gollum is back as my avatar. It seems the Jackal just didn't go over as well as good ole Gollum. Keep those cards and letters coming.

    Cheers,

    Oskaar
    Is it tasty . . . precious?

    Oskaar,

    While I have no idea what you look like in person, to me you will always look like Gollum until I meet you. The return to his picture is welcome even though I resisted the urge to lobby for it. I just couldn't relate to the other one...

    It is good to see your familiar avatar face again.

    Along the lines of speculation as to your actual resemblence to Smeagol, I have only one comment.

    I do not in ANY way resemble my own avatar!!!!

    Both of Oscaar's avatars have one thing in common, that same rascally smile. I associate him with that!

    My last girlfriend said that whenever I got that rascally smile on my face, she wondered what kind of trouble we were going to get into next.

    Hmmm . . . as a red headed nymph, this may have been mutual.

    BTW -- my 7 year old daughter thanks you for the avatar change. She was looking over my shoulder as I was scrolling through GotMead posts, saw the vampire face and said she didn't like it.

    I keep her away whenever I'm looking at Dave Baldwin's posts.

    Heh, yeah I try to stay away from David's posts at work. Though I was never outright told it was inappropriate I did get a somewhat shocked () look from my managers face when you came over to ask a question and I was on one of his posts.

    Since I don't have a meadery to fall back on I figure at work at least I had better play it safe. And now since I can't seem to connect from work that problem is solved!

    Having read the recent posts, I decided to change my avatar. I really don't want anyone to have to worry about their wife, daughter, boss, etc seeing something less than appropriate on screen.

    Thanks for the honest input. I really don't want to offend anyone with the "warrior babe" avatar.


    No need to stay away from my posts anymore Maybe now I can let my wife see what I'm posting.

    Oskaar,
    I think a picture of Fredd would make a good Avatar for you. LOL
    After all, a man and his dog share much in common in looks.

    JMat,

    I'd agree with you but I doubt that Fredd druels as much as Oskaar does...

    With a grin,

    Isn't that bordering on animal cruelty Joe? I mean come on he is just a poor defenseless dog!

    :P :P :P

    Sorry Oskaar!
