Okay, who switched my avatar?

I have insider information that this had to be done by someone with lots of power.

While I admit that this looks a lot like me on some days (except my hair isn't quite that gray yet), I seriously resent someone hiring a private detective and hunting down people I used to attend high school with and finding out the hostile nickname I had back then. I had nicer nicknames. Couldn't you have used one of those?

Kitten comes to mind, but that might not be the best one to use here, given the connotation (The nickname had to do with my resemblance to a Comic Book character -- Kitty Pride? I think that was the name but I didn't read the X-men comics).

Is this code for lesbian sex?

I was granted the nickname Kitten by a group of roll-playing gamers where I was the only girl who played with them regularly (why do I feel ever so set up by my own words?). I don't think any of them had LESBIAN sex in mind when they changed Kitty to Kitten. But the expression 'jail bait' was also in use, so I was fairly safe. lol.

Oh, great: MORE nutty relatives. I married a military man so I could escape the nutty relatives. What on earth have I done? :)

My apartment isn't that big. Couldn't we just be COUSINS? Besides, I have been married for nearly 19 years so I am not used to so much emotional intimacy. ;)

LOL I shared that sentiment in a PM to her a bit ago.

Oh god, why don't you all just give yourselves a California-style group hug then hop in the hot tub and watch the sunset over the Marin Headlands.... ;) ;)

So, I was wondering: is that California group hug/ hot tub thing with or without clothes? Then that got me to thinking about the comment of all of us being 'brothers and sisters' and that gets back to my Georgia origins, not my California 'home', iykwim.;)

Hey cuz, can you spot me a C note?

Cool: More relatives = more places to stash ammo!

BTW - It was not I that changed your avatar. I miss seeing the "juggies" as I came to call them....

You know, requests for photos generally gets me into trouble. Is that any way to treat a friend?-- encouraging my bad habits?;)

Sheesh -- are you just determined to make sure that my 'acceptance' in cyburbia is short lived, or what? lol.

Oh, too funny! I actually do have a picture of me laughing with my tongue sticking out that I might post (if I could figure out HOW!!) just because it humorously reminds me of my new -- unwanted! -- avatar. But that photo, while funny, is not terribly flattering and then I would be compelled to post a more flattering pic to salve my ego. lol.

I have been debating what to do when I replace Einstein with something more ... acceptable. I like having an actual pic of me up there, even if it is utterly unrecognizable. Sigh. I wonder why so many of my friends tell me I am an egomaniac. I just can't figure it out. ;)

I think it is fair to say that those that played role playing games (NTTIAWWT) probably did not know what lesbian sex was. I on the other hand...
