WILL THE REAL LIZARDEK PLEASE STAND UP?

Apropos of contemplations about my self-image and my mirror image and the evil twin that only appears in photographs, I wonder how many other people out there are addicted to avatar-makers? Am I the only one? I think they're great fun, and an absorbing time-suck. Only I realize that all the little lizardek's I have created, with the exception of only a few, adhere to a standard ideal of beauty that includes high cheekbones, heart-shaped faces, round and doll-like eyes, and skinnyness. They're little mini-me's without the freckles and barky hair and untidy eyebrows. It's like being a virtual Barbie Make-Up Head!...without the impossible measurements and the permanently high-heeled feet. :P
