Pick a member and tell us what you think they look like


This may not be directly on topic, but recently we had a thread about music and movies and I found it to be great fun and also a great way to connect a bit more with other members. And the more we are connected as a group, the better the group can be.

So I thought it would be nice to do a little bit of a group building game. I hope this is ok with the moderators.

If you know someone on a forum, you don't know what they look like. Some people automatically create a mental image associated to that person. Some people have to think about it. But at some point, you get an image of that person.

Now, the game is: pick one member and describe what you think they look like.

I pick: Dee.

My perception of Dee is that he has a tanned skin. Short hair. A bit of grey. About 5 feet 9. Strong build. Very friendly. Like one of those people that walk by and you think: "Hey, that seems like a nice guy."

I hope others will play!

You can have reasons, or you can have results, but you can't have both.

I think MikeM is sandy blonde, full head of hear, blue or gray eyed, smooth-skinned, and about 5'10." A naturally athletic build carrying about 20 lbs of beer weight which is quickly dropping of its own accord, no diet necessary.

John Lennon and Jerry Garcia both look really cool, so that's not bad at all.

I had to use a conversion program, metric system over here. Height is pretty accurate. According to the conversion program, I am 5 feet and 11,46 inches.

Not blonde though, I have brown hair. Blue eyes, so that was a good call. My skin is smooth. My weight is also accurate. I don't gain weight easily, so about 20 lbs of beer weight which is quickly dropping is also correct.

I have a relatively skinny body type and when my body is in it's natural state, I'm pretty athletic, given that I get enough movement.

So, pretty close!

Red is a becoming a common theme when it comes to Dee. Does that fit Dee?

Btw, let's go for the other well-respected and awesome moderator Anna too. No Bunny221, it's not a man. :P

I picture Anna as having fairly long, brown hair. He hair is beautiful. She's sitting by a window with some plants and is looking out while petting her cat. Brown eyes. A bit of a pale skin-type, but not too much. She seems peaceful. A calm person. Like someone who is content in life. She's thin, healthy.

That's my perception. I wonder what others think and what is actually true.

I think so. Red is passionate, and Dee is passionate about sobriety and SR.
