One of the first things suggested to me in regard to blogging was to have my picture taken and start plastering that along side my name as my avatar. Branding… bla bla bla.
As good as this idea was I have an aversion to having my picture taken. I hate it! I’m much like my father in this way. In fact, the last time I had my picture taken (that I know of) was for my 20 year old driver’s license. We all know how ‘good’ those pictures can be.
My fake smile comes off as ‘creepy’ every time, in my opinion. So instead of creeping out the entire blogosphere, I’ve decided to go the mascot route.
Allow me to introduce you to Kaffy – The Kaffeinated Kitty. Kaffy’s been with me for a number of years now and we’ve been through thick and thin together. He’s appeared with such slogans as ‘Coffee Addict’, ‘More Coffee’ and ‘Juan Valdez is my buddy’ and currently sits beside several thousand forum posts across the web. He’s associated with my forum nickname of StarLab.
If you see Kaffy now, the first thing you should think is: ‘OMG! It’s Larry!’ The second thing you should think is: ‘I Need Coffee!’
