The manga/chibi avatar craze is sweeping UU! If you have changed your avatar, post in this thread so we can ooh and ahhhhh!

I made mine years ago. Never used it on UU until I saw everyone going crazy with them. This is really what I look like. Sour expression and everything... I think it's' great. Gives us a sense of who we all are... A picture speaks a thousand words... I like Mouthy1's too. As long as it looks like you?

I was wondering what was going on, maybe you should explain. Is it just some program you guy sfound or somethin?

You can do it here. I have made several and they never email them to me, so after the final step I just click and move it to my desktop. Not sure it that's right, but it works.

I didn't want to admit it earlier, but I did give that avatar thing a try. All I ended up with were these weird dancing lemons you see above. Now that I'm stuck with them, I don't know what to do.

Just kidding!

:rotfl:
I should have been at least a little more clear about what I wrote. I should have made obvious that I'm a merchant seaman, and that I'm currently looking to ship-out again.

BTW, my union isn't contracted with any vessels that sail to Indiana. Too bad, that.

Totoro. It is from Studio Ghibli in Japan. Here (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096283/) is the imdb link. Highly recommended.

My uncle was a Merchant Marine (USA) for years and years. I think the only place he never managed to get to was Australia. He used to bring us all kinds of souvenirs and such!
