Do Tell -- What Does Your Username or Avatar Mean? Can't Post

Sometimes our profile choices hold a special significance, sometimes not. That meaning can be clear as a bell to our community or utterly obscure. If anyone is interested in sharing the origins of their username/avatar and helping other TORn members get to know you better, please post here!

As the OP, I guess I'm obligated to get the thread going which is ironic because I have nothing of much interest to share but here goes ... "The Grey Elf" was pretty random. I just wanted something simple. I struggled a bit coming up with an avatar pic until I came across a black & white (& "grey") photo of Audrey Hepburn. I've been told I look like her since before I even knew who she was. And she did win a Tony award for playing Undine, a water sprite. 'Kay, not an elf but close enough! And that pretty much sums it up for me. Smile
