I thought it'd be a great idea if everybody posts a picture of him or herself Smiler
We've got so many new members that we all should be hardly able to know how everybody looks like right now.

I'm the one in the middle with blonde hair and glasses - which I am not wearing anymore now because I got *yay* lenses.

You can only display a picture which is currently hosted somewhere on the internet...if you're simply 'copy and pasting' from your local hard drive, then it won't work.

You'll need to find an image-hosting website (but not Yahoo!, as they don't always seem to work on here) which will host your photos so that you can link to them...I'm sure that someone will be able to give you some good suggestions...I've not yet found one that I trust!

Well,I did it the same way I got my avatar to FINALLY work.I followed the advice of going to and uploading the photo there..then copying it's URL.Then all I did was click on "Image" on this page under Instant UBB Code and pasted the URL there.And voila! There was my photo.Hope that helps.


Oh,and no I don't mind you saying so Arlington.Thank you. Wink
ok.... it's one thing to have a go at me about posting 'crap' on the forum....but it's another bag of roasted cashews soaked in sweet sweet smooth caramel to pay me out about my appearance.

Just because i have little or no regard to any of you're feelings doesnt mean I should have to be ridiculed on a forum for posting a picture of myself in good faith.... just trying to be nice and participate in a place I considered to be family (in a way that's not really family but people on a computer i dont know)....and then just have shallow superficial comments based on my looks.

it hurts.

Donovan, I hope you weren't talking about me? I meant nothing of the sort about your looks. I just meant that you're thick skinned enough not to have anything phase you..

I think it's just fine that site posted your Vegas pic in their "mullets galore" forum - or that's at least where I see the link for your pic pointing to. Smiler

More power to ya, man.
Donovan, I don't believe that anyone was knocking the way you look. I think they were light-hearted comments which made reference to the fact that that (a) you had a beard and (b) that you were not the sort of person to be scared off by anything, based on reading your previous tenacious style of posting on this board over the years.

However, hypocrtitical comments like this one of yours..
Just because i have little or no regard to any of you're feelings doesnt mean I should have to be ridiculed
..are likely to take credibility away from any points you try to make on here. People who see you being offhand and deliberately trying to provoke an argument will, in turn, be less likely to consider your feelings when it comes to any discussion involving you in public. If you can't take it, don't dish it out.

However. All comments on here should be respectful and any personal bashing will be deleted by one of us Moderators. If you have a personal gripe with someone, get it onto email or PM and discuss it with them privately.
Thanks, Alison for the link, very useful and user-friendly. You can view my pic at:

[URL= x.html?]My pic[/URL]

Although after seeing what i look like, you will realise it wasn't worth the visit Confused
Arlington...what you've gotta do is: find your photo in the album and click on it. It should be the only photo on your screen. Now down the bottom left hand corner is a bit that says "link for auction". Click this. It will open a new window with the url for the photo...copy it & paste into your post using the image button below the posting area. Clear as mud? Wink

Oh BTW, little pic is Lady Penelope from The Thunderbirds. If you're a sixties baby (like me) you'll remember them. But if you're (a) young (& I think you are Big Grin ) or (b) American or (c) all of the above, then you probably have no hope of remembering them. Wink
Hey Joanna, I don't think your pictures look "fuzzy" at all, did you see mine?

I guess if I want a better picture next time I get pictures developed I'll have to go through Snapfish too. I need to get hip with all the modern devices, I'm so far behind! Oh well..... Smiler

More pictures please! This is so fun, I love seeing what people look like!! Wink
Gemini... I followed the link, went away and allowed it to download (okay so I have WAY slow dial-up) and came back and...

Gosh - you are amazing. You're lovely. Smiler

Don't you dare take that picture down! (I say this as a happily married heterosexual girl, I might add... Wink ) You have a wonderful smile, and lovely skin... AND I could go on but I'd sound kinda creepy so I'll just say you're a STUNNER girl... you go!
Wait - I found a photo on an internal site for my company - let's see if this works....

Yea! This was taken at my Bachlorette party the night before I got married in March of 2001 (and taken before too many cocktails, I might add, although there is a rose in my cheeks!). My hair is much shorter now, but you get the idea....

Anne Francis
jester and chester -
okay. now that's funny.

so i see from your pics you are both musicians.

jester - none of the music links on the acoustic brownbag link for mac charles was working and now i'm kinda dying to hear your stuff. does it exist anywhere else?

and chester - you were playing the guitar in one of your photos there. do you have any webbased tunes? i think i recall you e-mailed me saying you listened to a couple of mine. so now i'm curious to hear these other musicians on this forum!
like rain:
Iv'e had a lot of complaints about being scarce on the net,as for that acoustic brownbag show,I don't know why it's not working. that's okay though because I never liked that show anyway, I wasn't quite awake for that one. unfortunately a lot of people booted it and passed it around.blech!

I wish I had a faster connection so as to hear everyones music properly.
Overall, it has become clear to me that we, "the Frenz" are a very handsome bunch, a group of unique, cosmopolitan and actually very "presentable" fans any music group should be very proud to have! That said, get ready, because here comes an onslaught of my unsolicited opinions about all the piccies on this thread, so far!

Here goes:

Silke – You give the impression of being a VERY good friend. And cute, too!! My favorite is the pic of you at the playground.

Brandi – not that I need to point it out again, but wow what a smile! Your friend in the pic seems COOL ASS, too. Love her smile and the great silly wink. No wonder you smile so big and so genuinely around her!

Prplmeanie - That costume ROCKS! We should all look so good in silver mini dresses and go-go boots! (Including Geddy! LOL.)

Donovan, your fanciful ‘do’ is just divine! I think Anslem is just jealous. Wink He must suffer from frequent “bad hair days,” I guess. LOL. Kidding, Anslem! (also trying to goad a picture out of you!!)

Geddy, you have kind eyes and a pretty mouth. (Is it P.C. to say that a man’s mouth is pretty?)

Kill Eye, smooches to you, darling. Thanks for sharing! *kisses *

As for me, I like the "pre-rack" me best. I looked smarter then, didn't I? Let’s face it we were all cooler at nine, weren’t we?

Alison, another pretty smile! Who’s the bloke, BTW? (Or have we already established that?) I remember seeing that TV show with the “steroid Barbie” too! Hee hee.

Jenn: no fair! I always wanted to be a dazzling blondie with a perfect smile who looks good even in fuzzy pictures!! It seems to me that your teeth can hold their own, even compared with brandi’s beautiful choppers… Wink Also, it seems you picked out the perfect avatar to describe yourself, given the choices provided.

Arlington… that first link is “expired.” Bastards. Even picturetrail has now started requiring money… therefore all my piccies are soon to disappear! Oh well, no great loss.

Mabelle- You are a cutie-patootie. No other way to describe it. Cute smile, pretty toes, ooh, and a bit of leg, even! You go girl! Hee hee.

Missing Person: Might I say that your mouth is also quite pretty? LOL. I’ve been to Adelaide, too!! What brought you there from Seattle? Inquiring minds want to know!

Sacredcow: That’s not a bad picture, really. I can see that you have cute dimples on your cheeks and nice thick, long hair. The way you’re balanced in front of the water would make me want to toss you in, though, to see if I could get a laugh or a smile out of you. Wink

Joanna: You have what I like to describe as “sunshine face.” No CYBORG at all!!! My best friend from school had that kind of sweetness about her. Also, how cool to have such a nice shot of you and Neil!!!

Arlington: OMG what a sweet baby face you’ve got! I’m sure the girls go gaga over you!

Dorthonion: Yeah!!! That’s really cute! Each of you seems like a “good catch!” I like your haircut, too, BTW: just enough curl up top without looking like Tim in the Never Ceases to Amaze Me video. Hee hee.

Belle: Bummer! All I’m gettin’ is the little red X and a “Remote Linking Forbidden.” The Funky Evilness thing is kinda fun, though. And you picked a cute AV… so good on you, anyway!

Speaking of Avs, Brandi… is that a Chicken McNugget, or what? LOL.

Kia: Again, I’m amazed at how MUCH the first pic you posted looks like your avatar! Same “chin up,” classy features and attitude. Kewl! But your second picture is even better, because it is so natural looking…shows off your pretty blue eyes and wavy hair. And, oh yeah, “nice tat!”

Gemini: I’m with Kia! You have a very “Laura Ingalls” wholesome beauty! Cheers and another glass of champers to you! LOL.

Anne: Look at that! Another beauty! A bachelorette party, huh? Come to think of it I CAN see that very healthy rose in your cheeks… and is that a devilish gleam in your eye? LOL.

Chester and Jester… I had fun surfing up those pics of you two. Suddenly… now and forever!…the two of you will always be linked in my mind.

HINT: Go to likerain’s profile and you can surf onto a couple of pics of her, too. Quite a lovely musician.

Houser: VERY cool avatar, and I did get a look at that sweet pic of you and your son before it turned into a little red X. Quite charming!

Alright now, let's see everybody else!!

I am particularly curious about:

stepinmyshoes, Anslem, suenotsusan, Error Gorilla, Secret:God, grace0418, Caledonia, Pet Eunuch, Betty, Siren, Paul_G, Jaffaman, boarderGurl, kaysee, JuddFinn, blueballoon and of course the REAL Donovan!!!

Give us a look, eh?
Ok, well it KINDA worked! That's actually the link to see all the pics I posted there, which is OK. finally worked! I'm working on a web page. I'll post the URL to that when I'm done. Or maybe I'll even post it while it's still under construction. Smiler

BTW, Arlington.....I LOVE the crayon TIE Fighters on your wall in the background! Wink

SSP, PC or not PC- No one has ever said either of those to me before, so I'll Thank you, then take the compliments and run with them!! Smiler

I'll forgive ya the go go boots comment, although I feel a nightmare coming on tonight Razzer Wink

:Edit: Jenn, Thank you too. And no, I wasn't offended by the "pretty mouth" remark, but if it had been spelled "purty mouth" instead, and heard the banjo - that'd be another story! Eeker You'd see me running away for a totally different reason! Razzer

More Pics Please!!!!
Thanks Sweet Secret Peace..the woman in the first picture is my girlfriend and the second is my best friend.I usually smile myself silly around both of them (but for different reasons Wink )
And yes,my avatar is a Chicken Mcnugget..haha.The only reason is because at one point my friend and I had photoshopped her ex-husband's face onto it,so I thought the original would be cool to use.Yes,we have too much time on our hands. Big Grin


BTW..I love all the pictures too..keep 'em coming!
Thanks everybody for not choosing to ignore my long-ass post! (I get that a lot... hee hee.) And also for saying I'm sweet... *blush* Also, in case some of you are now thinking that I have no life, rest-assured that what you are experiencing is actually �the slow season� in my business, and since I�m my own boss I get to spend as much time on the Frenz board as I want. So there.

Originally posted by Silke: [qb]For the girls: There actually is a Jeremy Ansell aka Jaffaman fanclub at Yahoo because we think he's sooooooooo cute! Oh er.. and nice as well Wink [/qb]
Well �la de da!� you mean one of the Frenz is actually famous enough to have a SUB-fan club? LOL. Dude, you�re gonna have to post a better pic, cause I ain�t joinin� your fan club until after I decide if you�re cute enough! Plus, I agree with Silke you are a big ole braggart and a show off!!! * green with envy* (I'll forgive you, though, if you tell me you stuck out your foot and sent old "Holmer" flying across the floor for botching up the Enz anniversary webcast like he did�) Heh heh.

Hey Jenn�OMG, I must've missed that "purty mouth" line in Deliverance! Scaaaary! (Don�t worry Geddy I promise I would never tell you to squeal like a pig!!) Hey, I just noticed you�re a MinnesOtan! I�m originally from Wisconsin, so we�re practically neighbors, don�cha�know! Have some lutefisk for me this Christmas! *plugging nose*

Missing Person� I was an AFS exchange student to Adelaide in 1984. I lived in a suburb called �Paradise.� (Cool name, or what?!) When we�re all waiting in line in Seattle for a long ass time you can tell me and boarderGurl and all the rest of us the story behind your long distance move! Oh, and thanks for noticing my cute AV! I actually found it online somewhere�so I can�t take credit except for choosing it. Oh. And, yes, I suppose I do qualify as having a "mouth fetish" assuming such a thing exists outside of Deliverance. LOL.

Originally posted by boarderGurl: [qb] BTW, Arlington.....I LOVE the crayon TIE Fighters on your wall in the background! Wink [/qb]
HELL yeah! Hey, I like that: "Crayon TIE Fighters"... that would make a pretty good band name! Man, gurl, do those mountainy shots make me jealous! I�m stuck living in this flat, humid, petroleum-addicted concrete jungle for now� but I�ll be up your way SOON!! (We�re still on for that �aging groupie� thing, right? LOL.)

Brandi: forreal I thought those two were the same friend; just making different faces for the camera. So you have a girlfriend and a girlfriend, huh? This is saucy news, for sure! LOL. I suppose now all those guys who've looked at your gorgeous pics and fantasized about waking up next to you are now fantasizing about waking up between you and your girlfriend! Eeker Nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more. (Except maybe this: Good on you girl! And: She is one lucky girlfriend! That sort of thing. Smiler )

Sacred Cow: I knew it! Congrats on kickin' ass at the badminton thingie!! LOL.

Locked Out: ROFLMAO! That's a great picture!!

Pet Eunuch: Okay, now you really need to post a picture of yourself...if only to prove you're not a *ahem* pussy. Wink

Dr Thirsty: Hey, nice touque, eh?

Beatworld: Cool!! Cool

Cheers, all. This is really fun! Thanks so much for sharing who you are! Big Grin
Juicy juicy news indeed...haha,but thanks again for the compliments Sweet Secret Peace..and yes,the beautiful brown eyed woman in the first picture is my girlfriend girlfriend.But I'm the lucky one to have her..sometimes I don't know what I did to deserve her,she truly is the other half to my whole. Big Grin Okay..I'm done being sappy now.Come on,who's next?Who's the next brave soul to share a photo?

Sweet Secret Peace, you're SO right: Crayon TIE Fighters is a great band name!! If I ever find a drummer, I'll keep it in mind!!! Oh, and we are SO on for the AG thing! (Aging Groupie) In fact, I've just purchased my Seattle tickets, so I have tickets to all THREE shows now!!! YIPPEEEEE!!! Let me know when you want to meet up in the Emerald City!

LOL! Ya, fer sure!

Actually, Christimas Eve we are having Lasagna and I might make Heidi's Cheese Ball receipe.
Christmas day I'm not sure, have not had a Lutefisk warning yet so it will probably be something like ham....I've only eaten Lutefisk once in my whole life though, not a favorite of mine! Wink Smiler


VARIANT FORMS: also lut�fisk ( ltfsk)

NOUN: A traditional Scandinavian dish prepared
by soaking air-dried cod in a lye solution
for several weeks before skinning, boning, and boiling it, a process that gives the dish
its characteristic gelatinous consistency.
ETYMOLOGY: Norwegian : lut, lye (from Swedish,
from Old Norse laudhr, soap, foam; see leu()- in Appendix I) + fisk, fish (from Old Norse fiskr).

MMMMMM, sounds good huh?!!!!

Sorry,couldn't resist adding this.
So many of my Christmases were taken
up with this lovely carol, brings
a tear to my eye!! Wink Wink

[May be sung to the tune of 'O Tannunbaum]

Lutefisk... 0 Lutefisk... how fragrant your aroma
0 Lutefisk... 0 Lutefisk... You put me, in a coma
You smell so strong... You look like glue
You taste yust like an overshoe
Put Lutefisk ... come Saturday
I tink I'll eat you anyway.
Lutefisk ... 0 Lutefisk ... I put you by the doorway
I vanted you to ripen up ... yust like dey do in Norway
A dog came by and sprinkled you ... I hit him vit an army shoe
0 Lutefisk ... now I suppose
I'll eat you as I hold my nose.

Lutefisk ... 0 Lutefisk ... how well I do remember
On Christmas Eve how we'd receive ... our big treat of December
It vasn't turkey or fried ham ... it vasn't even pickled spam
My mudder knew dere vas no risk ...
In serving buttered lutefisk.

Lutefisk ... 0 Lutefisk ... now everyone discovers
Dat Lutefisk and lefse makes-Norweigians better lovers
Now all da vorld can have a ball ... you're better dan dat Yeritol
0 Lutefisk ... vit brennevin
You make me feel like Errol Flynn.

Lutefisk ... O lutefisk ... You have a special flavor
Lutefisk ... O lutefisk ... All good Norwegians savor.
That slimy slab we know so well ... Identified by ghastky smell
Lutefisk ... O lutefisk ... Our loyalty won't waver.

Actually, it does bring back fond memories of my grandparents, I miss them...
Sorry for getting off topic...

re: Lutefisk

I tried this one Christmas at my now-ex-boyfriend�s family's house.

It wasn�t as bad as I thought. My mother�s family is from Newfoundland and salt cod is a traditional food there (it used to be the foundation of the whole economy of Newfoundland) so it reminds me of that quite a bit.

Of course, the Newfoundland salt cod is not soaked in lye, so maybe that makes it a bit more palatable and less gelatinous than lutefisk.

Salt cod is also popular in Portuguese and Italian cuisine (known as bacalhau or baccala) and I think some Caribbean cultures too.
I found a far more recent picture of me on the's a photo of me and the hubby with a friend's baby Clara...the photo won't link up, so here's the link.

Auntie Anne and Craig on the web

Notice I am quite inept at holding said baby....and how the caption mentions my Dad always giving Clara beer. We're a strange bunch, my family...

Sweet Secret Peace - thanks for the compliment! Big Grin You are a sweetie - glad you're making the trek to the NW for the concerts in February.
Alright drT! YOu are now officially on my list of favorite Canucks. (What a bunch of goof-balls you Canadians are!) I love it!!

Cute again, Anne! Will Miss Clara be joining us at the show? LOL. Hope to see you there, anyway! NOw I know who to look for! Hee hee.

bG Well, I checked it out, but I'm still pretty much of a "dyed in the wool chicken" where team sports are concerned. You, however, GO gurl!! Big Grin
Originally posted by Sweet Secret Peace:
[qb]Cute again, Anne! Will Miss Clara be joining us at the show? LOL. Big Grin [/qb]
Thanks, SSP! Aren't you living up to the Sweetness of your name!

I must clarify for everyone who looked at the Auntie Anne pic - Miss Clara is not my baby. She lives in Austin, Texas and belongs to my friends Nancy and Rodney - Don't make me a mother before my time Wink I thought it would be obvious that I am the least likely to have a baby - look at how I am holding her in the picture! Awkward City!

However, if Miss Clara were in Seattle, I am sure she would join us - she's quite the concert-goer. She's already seen Brave Combo 3 times (if you don't know who Brave Combo is - they are only the hardest working Polka band in the world)

Dr. Thirsty - nice pic - what a handsome couple you two make (although I am fond of the previous zombie photo myself! Does your other half know about that side of you?)

Yeah. And she still married me in spite of it all. She truly is special.

Big Grin
Geddy - Yeh,that's pretty much the expression I'd have if that happened..which it BETTER not BTW.Thankfully Neil usually sells out the 9.30 Club,so I don't have to worry about cancellation due to poor ticket right now all is good. Big Grin And I've never been told I look like Buffy before..or anyone famous for that matter.Cool beans!

Ok guys, I was inspired by all these pics.......I've FINALLY got my new website off the ground! Not too many pics yet.......ok, there's only ONE so far, and it's of my b/f! But as you can tell, I'll have my own page of Neil-stuff.....including pics from the Tower Records show in Seattle last year! The design is taking WAY more time than I'd anticipated, so I'll post again when I've got new pics up. Have fun all!

You know Jenn, seeing your pictures made me think - you look so much like your avatar! Big Grin
(Sort of like what Sweet Secret Peace said about me, with one of my poses apparently looking like my avatar... hmmm well I don't know, but I always find it helps to lift up your chin while being photographed! Unless you have boogers, LOL...)
Thanks Jenn,

You do look like your avatar. So glamorous!! It is fun seeing everyone's pictures. I feel so homely compared to all you gorgeous folks.

Anyway, I added a second picture of me with some members of my family taken in October. It's the same link,, and from left to right it's my niece Nia, my brother Tom, my sister-in-law Beth Ann (she's married to my brother Paul but Paul isn't in the picture), my husband Noel, my mom, my brother John, and his wife Barbara.

It's not a much better picture of me, but you might recognize us at the next concert anyway.

On a party, me and Dan and fellow moderator Krowdie (the one with the beer)

The morning after the party I think. Had far too less sleep and that's how I look like.. Red Face
Will be visiting Debs and Mark again on Thursday Big Grin YAY, they are so lovely! Mark took these photos btw! So I don't have any copyright there! Just to make that sure in case you want posters or the like, hehe Big Grin
Fiona, I'm not sure about the avatar thing, whether it was subconcious choosing it or not. I know I was looking at all of them and I picked it because I really liked the bright colors. I would have something more original if I could but I can't figure out how to reduce the size so, I've just kept it.

Grace, I think you are cute. Smiler

The girl is called Rachel and the boy on the right is Jelmer aka Zwarte Piet (in case of: Confused ;it's a long story) They are two of my way too sweet children. I'm studying to be a teacher and one day a week I have my own class along wth their regular teacher. Next week is my last day and I'm really going to miss them. I'm the headless one in the back btw.
