Jerkass, I hope you're not implying that attractive strawberry blondes are unlikely to be productive members of society!

I was only implying that I think I'd spend a lot of time with myself if I were an attractive strawberry blonde.

There, you've only made me say it out loud!

But don't you do a lot of that already, even though... oh, never mind.

Yes, that's right kumquat, but don't worry, you're still my favourite small-day-outer!

K7 - I'm sure I won't usurp your favoured status, JD is being very kind and showing me the sights tomorrow as part of the next installment in my Saturday Cities of Culture tour.

Being an attractive strawberry blonde myself, I can tell you that it doesn't quite work that way, Jerkass (if, indeed, that is what you jerk).

I've never been crazy about my avatar but chose it in a hurry in order to stop pissing people off by choosing THEIR avatars by mistake, not realising they had already been taken.

I think my sulky blue-faced friend over there has the opposite effect of JS's benign yellow-phizogued avatar: it makes my comments seem more mean-spirited than I intend. Some avatars are just plain scary. For instance, Grendel, I'm sure you're a lovely person but somehow that growling monster who represents your words makes them seem aggressive somehow (to me anyway). The power of pictures, huh?

So there I was, all ready to take my first steps into the big wide palimpworld, when I discovered my treasured and carefully crafted Flickr icon wouldn't work! Gah! Without such a carefully crafted and honed identity surely my online life will end! Please! Help me! (gurgle, splutter, cough...)



----------

...Five seconds later...

Dang, that was quick! Thanks! Now to go out and spread the fear...
