    Well the Avatar I came across and thought it was just a wicked photo, usually my avatar is a pic of one of my own livestock ! Muz is a nickname I picked up in the 80's, interestingly only my very close family and friends call me Muz but now so do reefers !

    (really nice thread )

    I'll have a go, my two closest buddies in the UK reefer gang are both well over 6foot (2metres) and neither are particularly slim:whistling:.....leaving me around 5ft9inches and slim the "wee-man":) (i am actually average height and weight)
    The reason i have Kermit, all the reefers in Kent (the south eastern corner of England) decided to have characters from the muppet show on the forum i use in the UK - so there you are, i'm neither a midget or a frog:lol:

    Had a Siberian Wolfhound (Malamut) that sometimes acted like a bloody Kanga. So my first online name in the MSN Chatrooms was Kangawolf, progressed from there to Kanga.

    The avatar is just the K in my nick.

    (ok dont ask me what a Kanga acts like or what it is besides a head garment I have no idea):lol:

    I'm a red head, so my avatar usually depicts a red headed lady. Then I'm a sucker for comic book super hero's... Unlike other girls who read Archie and the like, I LOVED DC and Marvel Comics! :blushing: "Kryofrozen" sounds like a super hero's name... Sooo there ya go!

    Galibore is a valey in India. I can't remember why I chose it seeing as I am neither Indian or have ever been in India. It was very long ago when I chose it. Back in varsity days when i was playing a lot of computer games.

    I was doing graphics for a web site once and I was bored so I made my avatar. I chose predominently yellow because it's one of the few colours I can identify (I'm a bit colour blind).
