I have arrived

Yes, I now exist in iconic form, thanks to the fabulous Stirrup Queen herself.

I’ve always admired the avatars of just about everyone who has one. In fact, I told Melissa I thought she should feature her cool creations on a gallery page somewhere.

One day, while looking over my shoulder while I was tweeting, M saw some of Mel’s creations and said to me, “so, what do you have to do get one of those?” Or maybe he said, “so who does a girl have to screw around here to get one of those?” I can’t remember which. (ETA: Actually, M doesn’t remember saying that last part. I suppose it’s possible that in my twisted mind, that’s just how I remembered it.)

Anyway. That was months ago.

So finally, after a little prompting, I just asked.

Mel recently wrote about the anniversary of her You Tube sensation and Infertility Film Festival hit, “My Aunt Jane knows more than my RE.” I remember when I first saw that video. I fell instantly in love with Melissa. I watched every one of her video creations, over and over. I laughed and cried. I thought, wow, this chick gets it. I loved her sense of humor, her creativity. I loved her innovative use of new media to promote understanding and community.

Most of all, I loved that with just one click, I had found a new home.

So, when Mel wrote about how much she’s learned about Microsoft Paint since creating the video, I was reminded of my quest.

Now I’m just tickled ferocious that Mel has created me! Behold, the new luna avatar:

I should note that Melissa asked me what I wanted to hold in my hands. Since mojitos and chocolate were already taken, I told her to just go with the celestial luna theme. She got my colors just right. And she made my hair so pretty!

Thanks, Mel. I love it!
