Mobileread.com Gang: Avatar for zelda_pinwheel, v.1, 28 April 2008.

imp conversion of Mobileread.com's thread of the best of the best avatars for zelda_pinwheel series (pictures only). I will do others as well. to avoid confusion in case of further revisions i have copied the title of the thread's post, including version number and date (they correspond to the mobi version i may convert at some time).

conversion notes : thanks to Nick's (that's me) brilliant conversion tool, i can make an .imp 1150 *and* a 1200 version with very little extra effort on my part, so i have included both here. the color illustrations make the 1200 particularly worthwhile.

i'm usually surprised when i wake up. "reality" (such as it is...) tends to be rather a shock after the splendor of my oneiric environment. well, i say splendor... other adjectives may apply. in this particular context i may add however that in addition to surprise my reaction is one of rare delight. (very rare.)

what can i say, there's just something about that sleek polished finish, that magnificient cranium, the flawless circuits, the faint gleam of diodes in a darkened room... i go all aquiver myself just thinking about it. someone open a window, the screen is getting all steamed up.

the avatar sticky should stay though ; you never know what else it might inspire.

(hmm, is there an echo in here ?... ) much appreciated. now i can peruse my collection of avatars from my bed, as i drop off to sleep. i can't wait to see what effect if will have on the nighttime activity of my subconscious. i expect it will be interesting, to say the least.

the avatars are starting to pile up (not that that is in any way a bad thing...) so i thought i'd best be moving along to the next one in line. we have the litterate and insightful RWood to thank for it. watch out, Zelda is not as sedate as she may appear in this photo...

To Zelda or not to Zelda, that is the question.
Still waters run deep.
Beneath the calm surface a torrent rages.
A bromide a day keeps the cops away.
Zelda, Zelda, my kingdom for a Zelda.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the most Zelda of all?

It probably says something profound (or profoundly twisted) about me that this is the post I found funny in the last twenty or so.

Yes, you said I can only use HD cameras if they've got a Streisand-filter over the lens. ([harrumph!] Kind of defeats the purpose of HD then, doesn't it?)

Really? I thought all females came with tentacles?

Oh dear. To quote an English playwright while alluding to a Japanese woodcut, "You are a fishwife" (Excellent, that's my favourite kind of wife!)
