Avatarrific!


Okay, people. I finally got enough complaints about my avatar to do something about it so I've posted a new one. The associated photo was taken on December 14, 2005. The previous avatar was a crop from the photo shown above, which was taken on July 18, 2004 in Pittsburgh. I still think the first avatar is more interesting as the expression on my face accurately depicts my general smirking attitude.

But I'm all for giving the people what they want, so there's good ol' smiley Erin for you.

Hey sexy.

Once the old picture was cropped, it looked as though you were peering down on some people you just ran down with your eighteen wheeler.

The new one is much better.

Damn you are sexy.

Yeah, I gotta go with Mr. Merk here. Both times. Although the Mini-Cooper rally (2006 Cooper S here, baby!) is a cool deal.

No digital image, cropped or otherwise, could compare to the full-frontal splendour of the organic Madame O'Brien who lives in my imagination.

hello smiley erin!

While I love your new avatar, I do still very much love the old one with your distinct smirk.

Eff it, just make your avatar with you naked. That will shut everyone up. No longer will you have to hear complaints from people to change your avatar.

There. Done.

I am the best problem solver around.

I see what you did there, pdd.

(nice job)

I'm with PDD. Make your avatar yourself in nudity.

That would be hotter than anyting that's really hot.

i like the old one better because it was taken on my birthday: july 18. but i agree, the new one is darn hot.

Yay! I didn't like the old one because it looked like a different person. This always made be vaguely worried that there were in fact two of you, and 'Erin O'Brien' was a composite personality, with Evil O'Brien living in the attic and coming down occasionally to switch places with Not-Evil But Merely Ballsy O'Brien and screw the unsuspecting Goat silly. This arrangement, my worried subconcious thought, would work for everyone, as Evil O'Brien would get a chance to come down and have a little sex and work her evil by cutting people off in traffic and flipping the bird at Baptists; Not-Evil But Merely Ballsy O'Brien would get an occasional rest from supporting YouTube and taunting barely-published Canadian spec-fic writers (not that I know any of those) and the Goat would have occasional nights where he'd wonder what hit him. In a good way, of course.

Both Evil O'Brien and Not-Evil But Merely Ballsy O'Brien would have fine cans, off course.

I am thus immensely relieved that this sordid little worry that was eating at the base of my skull can be dismissed.

Colour me thankful.

Any photo of you is great Erin. I adore you.

Yeah, what Bostick said.

I like the new avatar better if only because your old one looked remarkably like a cousin of mine, and I've said things here that I definitely wouldn't say to my cousin. So it's a great relief to me to know I'm not spilling naughty secrets to a family member.

Thank you, oh patron saint of Naked Couch Day!

MUCH better. I was one of the complainers. That previous pic made you look like a bitter old spinster -- nothing like the real you. Now you're flaunting your gorgeousity to the world.

I LOVE the new one.

Lovely. As always.

I love them both. The old one reminded of an old friend. In fact it looked more than Jane than you. The new one is much sexier.
