Very cool picture Sister J!

Mad, I always loved the buildings. Granny's cottage is my favorite. Never bought any because shipping them over added so much to the cost.

Chilli, Jose always makes me smile!

I don't know if I ever explained mine. It's cropped from a picture of Tracy Ullman on an advertisement for her U.S. show State of the Union. She always made me laugh (haven't seen her in anything in ages), she's British, and I just thought the picture was cute.

She also had a brief but very successful singing career over here in the eighties. :D

Didn't know that!

Reminds me that I just saw an article that Adam Ant is trying to make a comeback.

I used to love Adam Ant back in the day. He was so cool *lol*. I even tried a bit of similar warpaint myself, before I knew how make-up worked *blush*.

Ah of course, this topic is about avatars and signatures. The avatar is, of course, Susan with the Death of Rats as, I'm sure everyone knew.
The signature? As you might have noticed, I have been away for a while due to personal circumstances relating to a car accident so I'm not sure why I chose this specific quote. Probably because there are so many incredibly good ones, I could not make a choice and picked this one because it's said by Ridcully and hey, 'why not?'.

Well, ridicule is nothing to be scared of. Or Ridcully, even.

Welcome back! :)

Welcome back Ridcully, sorry to hear about the accident but I hope you're ok now. Here's a tune of Adam and the Ants before they became 'cool'. (Personally, I think they were at their coolest pre 'Kings of the Wild Frontier' album when they were more a punk group.) :D
