Time-Sucks for a Monday

Lots of folks have been doing the Simpson avatars lately. Well, I confess, I did one too… a few weeks ago and it was HIDEOUS! Ridiculously unflattering, so I didn’t post it. (Yes, I am that vain.) It sounds like a great, fun idea but the truth is no one looks good as a Simpson. They’re all bug-eyed, after all, with some serious cirrhosis going on.  Even the “attractive” Simpsons aren’t all that.  (I feel it’s our duty as responsible adults to spread the truth.)

Fantasying how great it would be to have a superhero avatar instead… great boobs, tiny waist, (this might be a post-Pregnancy sag-induced fantasy but I can’t think I’m the only one)… I found this: Hero Machine

And wait it gets better… there’s a rock star edition! (I know you all don’t really want to be working on a Monday anyway and I am happy to provide some lovely time-sucking entertainment for your pleasure. You can thank me later.)

Actually I already have a superhero avatar (not that that stopped me from messing around on the site)… simply because I am privileged to have fantastically talented graphic artist friends.  My buddy who made my fabulous blog logo also drew me as a superhero.  I swear, I didn’t ask him to make me one… but I am kind of a nerd so it worked out. And I have to say it makes feel good on those days where my clothes decide to not fit. (Damn those temperamental clothes!)



Because I can’t resist procrastinating my workload any better than the next person, here’s my rock star avatar.  (I'm SO gonna learn to play drums!  I'm all badass like that.)



Last but not least, I know there are certain pop culture myths that haunt our generation. Subjects such as how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop, and can you really bake cookies in your car? Go read this and this to answer those burning questions.

Happy Monday!

I totally love this. And frankly, these do remind me of you! It's uncanny.


I love the spandex unitard. Why didn't you wear that to Blogher?

I think that's totally the outfit to wear next time you're heading off to the playground.


The superhero one is really cool!
