By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    I needed something cheerful for my navator, and this colorful Minnie Mouse is a bit my likeness with the same big glasses on her nose! When I look at her I'm immediately happy. :);)

    My avatar shows what I love doing every single day - studying English or something interesting, just it!

    @Baho26 to change yor avator you need two stars but I think when you are engaged on the forum you get soon a new star from @Lynne. Try to participate in the discussions.

    My nickname, Yui, is inspired by a character called 'Hirasawa Yui' in 'K-On!' anime. Because of that, I chose the random picture having her. This picture is known as 'chibi'. The pic was drawn in a cute way.
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 36,026 mod
    @yui_2000 what a nice avatar, the picture is indeed very cute and gives an idea of a funny girl. By the way, I have a granddaughter who is born on the same date as you and she eats very often rice waffles. ;)
  • yui_2000yui_2000 Posts: 37 ✭✭
    @Paulette Oops... Because this is my clone account, I fake my birthday. I don't remember why I chose that birthday. Maybe I just took the birthday of the character.
    However, there are some snacks look like rice waffles in my country.
    They're kind of sweet and crunchy. Does it sound like rice waffle?
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 36,026 mod
    @yui_2000 indeed the picture that you showed are rice waffles.
  • MichouxeMichouxe Posts: 12,502 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @yul_2000 @Paulette ;) We eat rice waffles every evening at the TV, but not with chocolate or something others. We likes rice waffles and a glass of red wine.

    K-On! is my favorite anime too. You made me remember that I was once very into it.

  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 36,026 mod

  • BellBell Posts: 47 ✭✭
    Well, my first avatar was Belle from the movie, 'The beauty and the beast', and that's how I chose the screen name but I missed the 'e' at the end. Lol. That's why I thought it's better to change the avatar! This time I choose a little girl reading as I do love reading and I long to have a hard copy book in my hand rather than the Ebook!!
