Avatar diversion

Yahoo! Avatars

Here is the picture of what I've come up with for my Yahoo Avatar. The pig and the spider represent the two main characters from Charlotte's Web, by E.B. White. The backpack holds many of my nifty finger-puppets, books and other props. Unfortunately, there was no tiara option.

I'mSO happy you made your avatar! I was just telling Ladyhearteater the other day that I really wanted to see what yours would look like. To bad they don't have a "primate" option so that Brad could participate.

That is totally how I would have pictured you! And I LOVE the references to Charlotte's Web, one of my all-time favorite children's books. Good job, Akelda! And I agree with Nonny, it would be really cool if they had a primate option.

Ho ho. Now you've done it. I have just created an avatar of Brad the Gorilla as a human. I'm not quite as handsome as I am in real life, but I couldn't find a "total body fur" option.

Thanks so much, Nonny and LH! I like your avatars, too. I just wish that there was more variety to choose from in terms of the faces and body types. I love having the wasp waist of my late twenties, but I think I'd like something with a few more curves that would look good, too.

Brad has been throwing temper tantrums over the popularity of the Monkey blog. He always claimed he didn't care a jot about popularity, so I wonder what's gotten into him. You'd think he was 5 years old, and not 40 something.

I don't know what a yahoo avatar is, but it looks great. I love Charlotte's Web.
