I'm using this fancy little snowman thingie because RobinNGabster was nice enough to send it to me. But I don't normally use these things for this reason: I don't do frills. I'm plain vanilla, and what you see is what you get.
I prefer to use photographs and words, because those tell you something about the real me. Fancy graphics have nothing to do with who I am.
But Robin, I do appreciate the gifts in my e-mail. That's why I used this one.
Here's the type of graphic I enjoy:
