New Avatar

Blogger and reader Nomad has drawn a rendering of how she imagines me . I am so pleased with it that I would like to thank her and post her image of Highlander and use it as my new avatar from now on (until she makes another one :P ) . If any of you are as talented and would like to make one of how you imagine I look, do email it to me please :)

Oh Highlander, the hottest of all Libyan hotties, my favourite blog hostess, the Libyan Queen (copyright Twosret) etc. etc. etc.!

By arranging the first International Highlander Drawing Contest I believe you are giving a new definition to both modesty and interaction between bloggers and their readers/fans ;-).

Could you please reveal to all your fans, me included, who enjoy arts but are not artistically talented themselves, whether the old Libyan flag flying avatar or Nomad's version is closer to the real Highlander?

Also, on behalf of all your fans, may I kindly ask whether the potential participants in the contest are allowed to imagine and draw your toes despite the lack of an official fan picture of Highlander's shebsheb zanouba and feet?

Last but not least, would you be insulted or flattered if any of the participants draw scars on your face caused by the heroic climbing of fences during the attempts of saving the legendary cat from her night runs?

Twosret said...

yeah NB better acknowledge the copyright lol! I have another one but I will say it to you in private :)

I linked to Nomad as a french artist and I think she is very much so. This is so nice of her Highlander and I think she does look like you no? except for few corrections.

I can't stop laughing at the toes and shebsheb zanouba lol Libyan queen should torture her male fans indeed :)

Non-Blogging said...

Highlander, oh you Libyan Queen etc. etc. etc., how can you tolerate that the Egyptian-Canadian-American Female Pharaoh above openly advocates the torture of all your male readers ;-)?

AngloLibyan said...

its good but I like the flag carrying pic.

Leilouta said...

I never really tried to put a face on you, but the drawing is really nice. The only thing that I thought you might have is long hair, am I right?

shlemazl said...

What? Nomad is a girl??? I am not going imagine anyone; I even can't get the gender right.

Nomad said...

yeah, with a masculine mind though !

Shlemazl, you aren't serious, are you? You never knew Nomad was female?

Sacrebleu!

programmer craig said...

Beautiful drawing! Highlnader looks so urbane and civilized compared to my "Nomad" avatars! Wait until I display the "pervert" one she did :)

Nomad, did she tell you how close you got?

PS-I volunteer to do an avatar for Non-Blogging! ButI can't guarantee it won't look like Mister Potatohead :D

red_enclave: From Behind Closed Doors said...

Nomad must be some artist, I can never imagine myself drawing such a beautiful portrait of you or anyone, even myself!

Ahaha, i thought the toes thingie has vanished from the face of the earth, somehow, NB seems to be very attached to "toes".

I have to visit Nomad's blog. I didn't know she's a girl! Yikes.

red_enclave: From Behind Closed Doors said...

flag vs portrait

I'd go for the portrait as it has got personal touch. An identity, your identity according to her interpretation (whether she may or may not have met you). I don't know how close it describes @ potrays you in her drawing but I find it very captivating. Was it the eyes, cheek @ gold? ;P I don't think you'd put on that much jewellery but I may be wrong. I think you're more of the outdoorsy type!

Twosret said...

Don't worry Craig I just asked her to draw you naked or making out so it will be scandelous.

NB,

Watch out the curse of the Pharoah's might follow you :) they too had foot fetish lol!

Shelmzal,

For the first time we agree on ONE thing, I too thought Nomad is a guy, thanks to highlander she corrected me.

Leilouta,

It is amazing how similiar it is to Highlander's features and you guessed right, long hair indeed!.

Non-Blogging said...

Craig,

Drawings of Mr Non-Blogging Potatohead are most welcome ;-).

Then we can start bragging about not who here has the smartest comments and most supporters but who's got most drawings done of him/her by like-minded bloggers and opponents ;-).

Red,

*blushing* In fact if the talk is on which female organs I find attractive when they're beautiful, no. 1, far above the rest, is certainly a female's heart. However, I couldn't quite imagine HL posting a picture of that here. No. 2 are beautiful eyes but once again the likelihood HL would be posting her toes here is higher than her posting a picture of her eyes. So, this is the strategy (oooops, now I'm making it open...).

I have to admit, though, that the strategy has completely failed so far. Me playing either Bad Cop or Good Cop doesn't help. Fresh confidential tactical hints are welcome in my e-mail ;-).

Highlander & Nomad,

What about combining the old and new avatars? I mean drawing Libyan flags on HL's cheeks like football fans do in the places where she blushes now.

Nomad said...

I am sorry that two american bastards find out before everyone else, does that imply they are french lovers, and won't admit it :lol:

Nomad said...

NB, I don't see H as a Lybian but as a fair lady

programmer craig said...

Nomad, Americans are smarter and more perceptive than other people, that's all :D

Nomad said...

unless we are blind and deaf, we can get their smart feeling :lol:

programmer craig said...

This is my recomendation for your avatar, Non-Blogging!

Fishing

:D

khadijateri said...

I like it - I wouldn't change a thing. I've always thought of you as having short hair... and you have mentioned you like your gold.

Sereeb said...

Holy Ramadan! That is sooo cute Highlander. I love it.

Highlander, I bet someone who’s got a sexy voice like yours would be Very hot, right? Umm!

Girl, post a picture and put 'em out of their misery, ok! hehe

Girl, post a picture and put 'em out of their misery, ok! hehe

Right to the point, Sereeb ;-).

Sereeb said...

NB, maybe we should write a petition for her majesty HL to post her picture.

We the undersigned followers plea with her majesty to post a recent photo….
Signed
Sereeb

Non-Blogging said...

Signed NB as well ;-).

Or somebody should leak a tape with HL's voice to YouTube for all her male fans. ***hint hint hint***

maiuna said...

nice earings!!! I really liked your new avatar, but i can imagine you with long hair,though ;)

programmer craig said...

Me too on petition! At least she should post a pic of her eyes like her character did on Adam's blog :P

Who are we kidding though,, she didn't even post her feet picture yet :)

A.Adam said...

is that you covered with gold,I can't imagine how do you look but Nomad helps me with this and I must thank her for the nice avatar.

Highlander said...

Non-blogging :P are you trying to compete with Programmer_Craig for the no.1 fan place ?
To answer your question ( and that of the others I guess ),Nomad's painting is quite reminescent of me. I was shocked and suspected that she somehow knows me.

The Libyan flag avatar was not like me at all as the girl has blondish hair.Potential participants are allowed to imagine anything about me as long as it is kept within the boundaries of decency - i.e. shebsheb and scars are OK , bikinis are not :P

By the way I am relinshing the torture of my male fans ( if there are any :P ).

Twosret :) you flatter me so much by calling me the Libyan Queen ( Copyright) , but then I like it I must admit he he he.
I think Nomad is incredibly talented, and can never thank her enough for such a lovely present!

AngloLibyan - I agree I like the flag carrying one too so much and it is still Highlander , but that one was not for me it was found on a website for avatars and there are identical ones for all countries - so it is not unique . Nomad's painting is made for me - that makes my ego go up up up LOL


Leilouta you are absolutely correct, my hair is probably as long as yours .:)

Shlemazl yes Nomad is female - don't tell me you could not figure that out from her comments over at Sandmonkey's ? he he he wink @ Nomad and Tommy.

Programmer_Craig - LOL @ 'pervert avatar' I have an idea which I will discuss with Nomad :P

Red :) yes Nomad's blog is cool go check it , as for toes I can see NB blushing ....
By the way I like Nomad's attention to detail , she even got the gold part right.

As for female hearts NB I think my heart is posted all over my blog in my writings if someone was still in doubt :)

Nomad thank you again for the compliment ! de tout mon coeur xxx ( kisses )

NB how do you like P-Craig's avatar suggestion to you ?

Khadijateri - thanks :) yes I mentioned I liked my gold , can't remmember where though- must be getting senile.

Sereeb - 'Holy Ramadan' Ya binti , now I'm getting requests in my email for voice recordings in addition to toes, now that you have revealed my secret weapon. I may post my eyes when I become published like you inshallah ( by the way congrats on that - we could not leave a message on your blog "hint)

So how's the petition going ?

Maiuna :) thank you sweetie- yes my hair is really long but I'm thinking of cutting it to match the avatar - what do you say ? shall we have a vote on that ? hmmm I may post a photo of my hair instead of toes of eyes LOL.

A.Adam ;) yes it really is me, I'm a big shlaftiya walahi , you should see me with the gold absolutely eccentric and totally gypsy like ( no offense but I love the gypsies).

Can someone please translate 'shlaftiya' for our non-Libyan readers ? Help sereeb ?

Non-Blogging said...

Your Highness,

May I humbly drop some comments on your imperial blog..?

Non-blogging :P are you trying to compete with Programmer_Craig for the no.1 fan place ?

Craig's lost that competition already and by a large margin as you can see in an earlier post of yours ;-):

http://lonehighlander.blogspot.com/2006/08/top-3-highlander-fans-while-80-of.html

Potential participants are allowed to imagine anything about me as long as it is kept within the boundaries of decency - i.e. shebsheb and scars are OK , bikinis are not :P

You really mean scars not scarves LOL?

Hehehehe what a Freudian slip. I know you've climbed fences and more to save your cat but... hehehe...

By the way I am relinshing the torture of my male fans ( if there are any :P ).

Soon I need to refer to the much discussed Geneva convention here. Craig, want to assist me? We might disagree on their application in currently ongoing wars but I guess this time we wouldn't disagree neither on the goal nor the methods ;-).

NB how do you like P-Craig's avatar suggestion to you ?

Not bad though I prefer fish on a plate to fish in a river or lake :-).

Nomad said...

It was a pleasure for me , I like drawing, and imagine people ; as I am optimist , I saw the sunny part of you

(sorry for Craig, but he deserved sometimes a cold shower !)

programmer craig said...

NBA,

Craig's lost that competition already and by a large margin as you can see in an earlier post of yours ;-)

Hah... if you only knew :P

(sorry for Craig, but he deserved sometimes a cold shower !)

I'm quite happy with the avatars you did for me, Nomad... they aren't as far off as I might want to believe.

I guess the nearest English translation of Shlaftiya or Shlafti is Chav.

Highlander said...

Thanks Anglo Libyan :)

Nomad , in praise of your talent you will be surprised to hear the remark my cousin and aunts made today when they saw the avatar. No one knows I have a blog but I had the photo open to rename and file somewhere and they happened to see it . They all said in unison " oh how pretty - this is you ! " .
I had to deny of course LOL
So once again you are fantastic :)

Nomad said...

Be careful, I'll get a big Melon !
