It is good but also strange, as I have gotten used to just seeing comic cartoons for avatars on here. Also, some people look different than I imagined (not in a better or worse way, just different; isn't it strange how you build up a mental pic of what the person may look like based on their posts)

*Random thought of the day*

Ironic, considering you look nothing like you do on Facebook

True!

The pic on my facebook fan page was taken a while back when I was about 24 (pre-beard lol)

Current pics include the beard - I will post a current one up so people can compare

Naah, I'll pass. If you want to see me, my husband, and Smoky the Cat, we are in my profile pic.

I'd noticed that, people's avatars maybe being themselves ... Is that announced somewhere? I actually haven't updated mine since 1865 and as it happens I don't wear such a full beard these days. Course in those days you had to pay a photographer you couldn't do daguerreotype selfies.

It's a thread in the lounge.

I don't recognise my avatar now I've changed it - I find myself reading my own posts and thinking "He seems like a sensible fellow, thinks just like me" ... I really am losing my marbles.

My profile picture has always been of myself. Wasn't it obvious?

I keep forgetting to do mine because I've not been near my computer and I can't be arsed figuring out how to change it from a phone.

Meh - nicked from my arsebook profile. Most recent picture of me as the only way I will tolerate a selfie is with my own camera, timed on a tripod and I can't be arsed doing that right now
