#76. "Slap A Squirrel"

Debuted: 9/3/09


Fanny brought up the old Mini Putt computer game that was once a Bored time waster, and I used the opportunity to present the Bored's favorite unanswered problem "33 g. of s. on p. and d.". Tgirl asked that I be signed up for a flogging, so I drew this avatar of her slapping ES.

Characters: ES, tgirl

#77. "Don't Drink The Bowl Fresh!"

Debuted: 9/4/09


I noted that there was an odd warning on the back of the package of Bowl Fresh toilet bowl tabs I bought that said, "Safe to use around pets and children, although it is not recommended that either be permitted to drink from the toilet." I found it hilarious that the back of the package had to warn people not to let their kids drink from the toilet, so I posted it to the Bored, and included this avatar in the deal.

Characters: ES

#78. "Insert ES Here"

Debuted: 9/5/09


After I gave heels girlfriend Kristin an ES tattoo after one measly post, and merely to mock him over his frustration at never getting a piece of ES art, heelsrule put up an avatar that just read "Insert tattoo from ES here". I took the avatar and drew ES in front of it laughing his butt off, then used it for myself. It was the very first time I inserted ES into a pre-existing picture for avatar use... i.e., hijacked an avatar.

Characters: ES

#79. "Hiya, Plasma Partner!"

Debuted: 9/8/09


Ranked 5th in the 2009 ES Avatar Countdown

After NE1410S posted a story about someone who had just donated their 40th gallon of blood (not at one time!), Sprots replied that she'd never make it to that level. ES offered that he has donated a lot of blood in his lifetime, and I upped the ante with this avatar of ES giving Sprots a transfusion. This wound up being one of the most beloved avatars I had drawn, garnering a huge positive reaction from many not named Sprots. Fanny gave it the title, pointing to the wave as the best thing about this one. Interestingly enough, the wave was added by me at the last minute as an afterthought, and the seemingly gleefully cheerful look on ES's face is actually a bad rendition of a big shit-eating grin. No matter what went on behind the scenes, this avatar was a huge winner.

Characters: ES, Sprots

#80. "Dang Intrusive Squirrels!"

Debuted: 9/10/09


Rexer posted a link to the infamous family vacation photo that was crashed by a squirrel, and that gave me an idea that opened up a whole new avenue for ES's humor. Doing the same thing I did to heels' avatar a few days earlier, I grabbed the avatar Sprots was using of baby Matias floating in the pool, and added a ES on an inflatable lounger lurking right in front of him. The result was priceless in the way ES was almost seamlessly worked into the picture, not everyone noticing what was going on right away. Although I awarded all of my Matias avatars from 2009 a "joint win" in the countdown, I was chastised heavily, and perhaps rightfully so, for not making this one the showcase avatar for that win.

Characters: ES, Matias (real-life)

#81. "I Hate Coffee!"

Debuted: 9/16/09


KT posted a question he got while playing trivia which was reminiscent of uly's infamous Greed question, dealing with the most recognizable smell, the answer being coffee. Dave observed that he'd bet this would inspire an avatar change (from uly), but of course, I used it as an excuse for a new ES avatar of ES showing his dislike for coffee.

Characters: ES. MBRS

#82. "Ody and Spilly"

Debuted: 9/17/09


After finally caving in and getting a pair of kittens from a co-worker who happened to have some that needed homes, I posted the announcement thread with this avatar of ES enjoying his two new friends... who would go on to be named Ody and Spilly. This is the avatar I used when I set up an account at Cheezburger to make lols of their antics.

Characters: ES, Ody, Spilly

#83. "The Burning Squirrel"

Debuted: 9/20/09


This avatar was inspired by a story Ellen told in chat about her husband once setting a squirrel on fire. I can't remember the specifics (it wasn't intentional), but it was funny enough for me to immortalize with this avatar of her character lighting ES up. Ellen liked it enough to use it as an avatar for herself for a long time. I believe this is the only ES avatar ever used by me that another BB later used on their account.

Characters: ES, Ellen

#84. "Ride 'Em Cowboy!!!"

Debuted: 9/21/09


Another ES hijacking of one of Sprots' avatars, this time putting ES on the back of Matias in a picture of him trying to lift himself up on the beach. The "Yeehaw!!!" completes the cowboy theme.

Characters: ES, Matias (real-life)

#85. "Artist's Block"

Debuted: 9/28/09


After a week without being inspired to draw a new avatar, I drew this one capturing ES's artist's block.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: None

#86. "Ping Pong Diplomacy"

Debuted: 9/30/09


After finally picking up the ping pong table I didn't really want, but was part of the bargain in being allowed to stock up on furniture for my new house from a co-worker's garage, I drew this avatar to go along with the announcement of its arrival. I like any avatar that gives a unique perspective of one of my characters, and enjoy the view of MBRS from the rear in this one.

Characters: ES, MBRS

#87. "Rocktober!!!!"

Debuted: 10/6/09


The official rally squirrels avatar of the Colorado Rockies 2009 postseason run, which lasted all of one series which they lost to the Phillies.

Characters: ES, MBRS

#88. "Matias' Birthday Surprise"

Debuted: 10/13/09


Another hijacking of a Matias avatar posted by Sprots. This one a pic of Matias' first birthday, where I put ES jumping out of the Broncos cake.

Characters: ES, Matias (real-life)

#89. "Think Pink"

Debuted: 10/14/09


A re-working of The Bidet avatar from over the summer where ES is changed from gray to pink. Christie was talking about her son's football team wearing pink jerseys for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in chat, and since I was on the laptop, and I was inspired to turn ES pink in an old avatar.... but being on my laptop at the time, I had only a few avatars created and stored there. The Bidet avatar was the easiest to switch, so it got the honor. This was a very short-lived avatar, surviving all of about 5 hours in the late evening/overnight.

Characters: ES, MBRS

#90. "From Me and ES!"

Debuted: 10/15/09


An avatar drawn for Esto's birthday, having MBRS jumping out of the cake and planting one on his lips. This otherwise mundane birthday avatar is actually quite historic, as it was the first avatar I drew in solid black outline instead of dark gray. I liked the look so much that I never went back to the dark gray, although upon doing this retrospective, I have come to appreciate the look the dark gray tracing gave the older avatars.... there's a certain quality of cuteness that the darker outlined ones just can't match.

Characters: MBRS, Esto

#91. "ES & Uly"

Debuted: 10/17/09


Ranked 13th in the 2009 ES Avatar Countdown

I decided to expand my avatar hijacking beyond just the Matias avatars Sprots would post, and ripped one from the king of the avatars, uly. He had an avatar up of himself with Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits, so I took it to Paint and drew ES over Noone. The result was a huge ES (or a small uly), and such a great bestest buddies avatar.

Characters: ES, Uly (real-life)

#92. "Send Me An Angel"

Debuted: 10/20/09


Rexer posted a picture on the Bored, sent to him by his sister, of an all-white squirrel that had been spotted in Geneseo, IL. I drew this avatar to counter Rexer's assumption that the squirrel may be male, but the story behind this avatar actually extends into the next day. Saucy later asked who the new squirrel was, so I decided the following morning to draw her out in more detail. The result was the character everyone knows and loves as Angel (named by Saucy in that same thread). I made her somewhat different than how I first drew her in this avatar, in particular, I changed her hair color from light gray to light blue.

Characters: ES, MBRS, Angel

#93. "I'd Like To Buy An Avatar"

Debuted: 10/25/09


Ranked 6th in the 2009 ES Avatar Countdown

Heels proudly announced to the Bored that he did not attend the Wheel of Fortune auditions that came to his area, expressing his general negative attitude towards the show. Esto, playing off his want of an ES avatar told him it was too bad since ES was a huge fan of Wheel. That was an easy set up for this avatar, with MBRS as Vanna White revealing to heels that there is still no tat in his future.

Characters: MBRS

#94. "Pumpkin Sweetie Pie"

Debuted: 10/29/09


Ultra cute avatar of ES poking his head out of a pumpkin Sprots is attempting to carve, inspired by my own "squirrel o'lantern" I created and posted that day.

Characters: ES, Sprots

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=22966

#95. "Matias Loves ES!"

Debuted: 11/1/09


Ranked 1st in the 2009 ES Avatar Countdown

The idea for hijacking this avatar was PM'ed to my by secondchance, and the result was my absolute favorite of the ES/Matias picture. When I basically awarded the Matias avatars the top spot in my year end countdown collectively, this was my showcase avatar... though I found out most preferred the original of ES and Matias in the pool. The look on Matias' face as well as ES's tail draped around the kid are this avatar's highlights.

Characters: ES, Matias (real-life)

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=23019

#96. "The Squirrel Hula"

Debuted: 11/6/09


Ranked 3rd in the 2009 ES Avatar Countdown

Christie posted an update on her sister SwampyTurtles being named among the finalists for Honolulu police chief. When squirrels came up in the thread, christie mentioned that there are no squirrels in Hawaii, and I said that had to change and drew this avatar of the gang enjoying the day on a Hawaiian beach. This was the first avatar to contain Angel in her modern form, and is one of the prettier and more colorful avatars I have done. It is also the genesis of Sprots' pleading for ES to go to Hawaii.

Characters: ES, MBRS, Angel

#97. "All My Rowdy Friends"

Debuted: 11/9/09


Sprots got tickets to the Monday Night Football game between the Broncos and the Steelers, and got tgirl and Peacock to go along with her. ES had been begging to go along for a long time, and thsi avatar briefly interrupted their Hawaiian excursion. Sprots appears to have been kind enough to buy ES a beer since he's not old enough to get his own.

Characters: ES, MBRS, Angel, Sprots, tgirl, Peacock

#98. "Basement Cat"

Debuted: 11/18/09


Another grumbling post by Ody about the demonic qualities of his brother Spilly possessed me to draw this avatar of Spilly doing his spaz routine by ES. Spilly was in full psycho mode the first few months I had him.

Characters: ES, Spilly

#99. "Kiki's Kool Kondo Kouch"

Debuted: 11/24/09


Kiki sent me some pictures of her new furniture from the condo she has, and after I joked that ES wanted to come down, I took the one of the couch and drew ES lounging on it. ES probably preferred Kiki's couch to the one I salvaged from an alley and brought into my home a few weeks earlier.

Characters: ES

#100. "Merry Christmas"

Debuted: 11/28/09


BiT posted a Christmas card of him and his family, and challenged others to do the same in that thread. Only ES took him up on the offer, posting a holiday card drawn of my three main characters. Since BiT made his card his avatar, I did the same with mine.
