    I had one before the crash. Looking for one currently.

    What does yours mean or why did you pick it?

    Did you change it since starting over?

    Hecule Poirot, as played by David Suchet. I'm not sure how much explanation is necessary, other than to say that I am a huge fan of the books (but not the Miss Marple ones) and find Suchet's to be the perfect version. Sartorially, of course, he is fastidious and more than a bit of a dandy--perhaps even for his time.

    My current one, and one that I've used before, is William Faulkner by the pool with socks and typewriter.

    Mine is a picture of my daughter. I took the opportunity to update my avatar to something a little more current.

    My avatar is Holmes -- the original Sydney Paget rendering, from 'The Noble Bachelor,' IMMSMC. I have always been a Holmes fan, and collect associated items that strike my fancy, especially original editions of the Strand magazine, wherein most of the stories were serialized.

    I have been told (even here) that I bear a resemblance -- somewhat hawkish, large nose, long neck, analytical bearing.

    We should include screenames as well -- as for mine, well I do, I also like the severity of the house style, and the name has a pleasing ring to my ear.

    Regards,
    Huntsman

    ps. Do you ever think, if only for a fleeting moment, that we've driven Manton a little 'round the bend?[​IMG]

    Mine was of Rubber Johnny, but I took it down due to creepy-ness.

    Ace Ventura: [has been trying to figure out a connection between Lt. Lois Einhorn and football player Ray Finkle, when he sees his dog's fur overlapping Finkle's hair in a photo] What the... That's it! Einhorn is Finkle! Finkle is Einhorn! Einhorn is a man!
    [Ace remembers how Einhorn kissed him and the pieces fall into place]
    Ace Ventura: Oh, my GOD! Einhorn is a man!
    [Ace heads to the bathroom to throw up]
