Just because it's random doesn't make it dumb.

Yes, Mimi! They're really disconcerting! I do the same thing, except I tend not to insult people.

Eh, for me, it depends who it's coming from. If it's from a member of my family I tend to say "Uh-huh. Sure." in a sarcastic tone and walk off. If it's from a non-member I tend to have a reaction very similar to Asa's.

I tend to flash a thin smile and say "Thank you" tersely. This usually discourages future compliments. If I'm in more formal settings, my smile is far more genuine in appearance, and my words are much more emotionally based (sounding).

... Er, right! On topic. New avatar.

Usual strategy for discouraging further compliments?

Laugh.

I think these are the only angel avatars I've used, they're all from Haibane Renmei.

Updated my signature with a recent photo of Fuggles... I'm about to update it again, since I don't like this one as much as the other.

Kay, so, which do you like better?

Innocent till proven teeth marks.
Vote number Two number one all the way. (This has been brought to you for the campaign to vote for innocent dogs, no dogs where hurt while typing this post.)
Both are great but I prefer.. well you can guess.

My new avvie is courtesy of a friend.

So I was texting my friend kellyVan while at work and I was bored so I told her to sketch me something. She asked what.
So I told her a unicorn.
She said it looked like a dog. To give her something else to sketch.

So I said, "a me."

I then added, "and a sword with fire!"

Apparently I wasn't too specific...

I need to change my avatar since it's a big ol' x now. Well it's been a while since I was posting actively in here (since before summer) so I don't know what happened to it. And sadly since some people have changed their avis since then and I can't make connections to who they are because I knew them by their avatars like it were their faces. ;.;

I even forget what my sig is. *reads* Oh. Well that's pretty unexciting. I need an exciting siggie!

Meh, when I get home.

Sorry, but I just have to point out that voila is spelled with the o before the i! It's my frenchness coming out. Actually I've seen some people spell voila as "wala" which gives me a chuckle. Or if you want to add the accents I usually see voila spelled with the accent pointing this way / instead of this way \ . If that makes sense. I don't have a french keyboard where I am right at this moment. So sue me.

Um, yeah. Here I go rambling on about silly stuff again.
