Jen and La made this look so fun, so I too went to Yahoo and made myself an ugly avatar- avert your eyes! (Note the beer can helmet. I initially went for the "Kwanzaa Porch" background but decided the 4th of July was even uglier.)
Edited to add Okay, so I had to go back for the Kwanzaa porch- it's just too bizarre. And I have a thing for pets in raincoats, apparently. And the ketchup, just like dripping blood.
