    She's Sherilyn Fenn. She's hot. Since she'll always be Audrey Horne from "Twin Peaks" to me, there are lots of great popcultural connotations with her. Now that she'll be joining another TV fave of mine, "Gilmore Girls", there'll be a whole new reason to have her as my avatar. And I've always wanted to look like her, but since I can't (wrong eyebrow shape, voluptuously challenged, let's not go there), having her as my avatar is the closest I'll get.

    Not likely that a balding, bearded, upper-middle-aged man has much interest in looking like a young soprano

    Not really, but I sure as heck wouldn't mind looking like Dean Martin did in his youth/prime, even as he got older up until the last four or five years he still looked pretty good.

    I always love your avatars, Marley. This latest one makes me chuckle almost every time I see it.
