Check out this awesomeness:
A drawing of my avatar from my deliciously unstable friend rockopossum.Thanks!
I find it amusing how long it took for the following thoughts to sink into my brain and click with me:
1) Somepony drew my avatar (and did a damn good job).
2) I have a pony!
The first took about 15 minutes, the second took about three hours.
I tend to be rather slow on the uptake when it comes to social concepts.
