AVATARS

Morning Groovers,
I am slowly getting to know my way around blogger and yesterday I did two things. If you look to the left of my ramblings, you can now subscribe to my posts. so if all goes well, when I blog, you get an alert if you're that bothered of course!. Then it's just how it used to be on AOL.
I have also admired for a while now the little dancing Avatar over on Marty's blog http://marty-heardatstarbucks.blogspot.com/ (dunno how to put just the title yet!) 
So yesterday afternoon I put my own on. Ok, it's a little slimmer than me and the hairs darker, but as I still have a passion for Dance/Disco music I thought it was very me...... Now, the only problem is, he's not dancing properly. I've re loaded the poxy thing about 8 times and he just moves like some dilapidated bullfrog. He's supposed to be doing high kicks and spinning round, but he looks like he's just crapped his pants!

Oh well, back to the drawing board......... Have a good Sunday, PP xxxxx

Heh-heh-heh - love the 'dancer'. But how do you know what somebody dances like who's crapped their pants?

Happy New Year!
love, Angie, xx

well, you are way ahead of me, Saltydawg, in the animated sidebar additions! Happy New Year... I hope you get the disco dancer worked out. He is kind of cute. Maybe I'll go looking for an Avatar myself, one day. bea

He looks like David whats his face from the office ;) lol.......I know what you mean about getting used to blogger. I've found the subscription thing now so if someone wants to use it, it's there lol

Your new year sounds way too civilised .... what happened to dancing til dawn fuelled by vodka and cranberry huh? I'm back, have missed our little blog chats, and as for avatars, i thought they were people who flew planes....

Hi Gaz,
Congrats on the Avatar. You'll be pleased to know that you did everything right. For some reason, the animation on these "Meezes" doesn't translate completely into blogs, just a small part of it that repeats over and over like a broken record. In my case, unfortunately, my Meez does look like me but I like to think that in real life my "animation" isn't quite as "spastic."
Best,
Marty

I like to dance too, unfortunately I have to go around rearranging all the ornaments and pictures in the house afterwards! Nevermind, I have fun doing it anyways. LIke the others I am so damn happy to see you posting again! (yes, I did swear and it felt . . . um . . . good!)

Hello, my dear Gaz, I'm still hanging out in California. I am staying with a dear friend and her equally dear husband and having a marvelous time.

I love your dancing avatar and I'm delighted to see you posting again. BTW, maybe you should just add some baggy pants to make room for the crap. Just a suggestion!

It won't let me subscribe. I am sure it is some failing on my part, will try again.

Very Studio 54. I like the dancer, but yes, he could have better moves. I do like his insouciance though. ~Mary

Cathy said...

It looks great Gaz, he dances like all white boys do lol. And if you get creative you can always doctor up a nutty pic of you, huh? Glad you figured out that "Subscribe" thing, it's been great it's just another version of AOL Alerts ad so far in these few months I've had no problems. Stay sweet! :-))
