Nah, you had dark hair and looked sort of eastern-european. I remember thinking in the dream: "Hey that's Zhuanyong! He looks just like I expected!" :lol:

(For the record, I've never had a clear mental image of you.)

To be honest, unless I've seen their picture, I can't help but perceive people as their avatars. You can imagine how this screws with my head. For example, I see DZ as a somber, sober individual just because his avatar doesn't smile. And any time he uses an exclamation mark, I get surprised, like abandoning the stiff upper lip is supposed to be totally out of character. His being English just makes it worse.


Generally, I end up thinking of them as sort of "floating personality traits" instead of visual images. Dong Zhou, for example, I imagine as a quiet, polite, fellow with a sly sense of humor and a self-deprecating manner. Never really stopped to think about what he might look like.

Why does this sound familiar....not that I got told I wasn't a newbie....
If becoming enlightened or an intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life!!

196. Your account is old enough to read chapter books.
197. You refer to it as your "home forum."
198. You remember the glorious days of the Purple-Hair Rebellion.
199. Your one April Fool's Day tradition is to swing by to see the joke of the year, no matter how long you've been inactive.
200. "Carol of the Bells" makes you think of Gan Ning.

...not that any of these apply to me or anything... :roll:
