Uncia Uncia, Himalayan?
Scribblenauts, gotta look it up!
Many thanks to all of you who replied!
Was there some confusion re Acadians - French Lousianians and Atticus (Finch), the role Gregory Peck played in To Kill a Mockingbird?
merci, mon cher le duc!
Mine is a pansy because I love their little faces. Gardening is a major hobby of mine, especially fragrant flowers...which is also responsible for bringing me to BN.
Mine is a bottle I "designed" on Paint
If I could launch a fragrance one day, I would use this bottle !
I had been thinking actis as in "actus reus" (I missed the 'a', and I guess I don't spell Latin so good) and "luna" as in moon or lunacy = crazy, impulsive acts. I'm starting to feel a little actus luna myself after some of these recent purchases...

On the other hand, the Luna moth is well... one gorgeous, amazing moth. I finally saw one "in person" a few years ago and it was bigger than my hand. Elusive, lovely.
(oh, and coincidentally, one of my other handles is moonlunasea as in lunacy, but some Japanese kiddie rock band called themselves moonlunasea and I glommed onto it for myself.)

I love mice and my Fracas..."musse" is slang for "mouse" in Swedish.
(besides, I call my daughter Musse, have always done).

Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
I love the musse-on-a-razor piccie!
Mine is a picture of my daughter and myself. This is the first time that I show my face. When I was at fragrantica; I didn't. At basenotes I thought, why not? I like to see a face on an avatar and I should do the same for others.
Mine is a crop of The Shrine by J.W. Waterhouse. I've had this print on a door in the house for about ten years and thought that it would make a great avatar for Basenotes.
When I look at it, I wonder if she's going up into the house or down into the garden ... though, one thing is for sure. She's stopped to smell the roses.
I like that old chestnut.
My avatar is of Giancarlo Antognoni, former regista, fantasista, and captain of Fiorentina; also a World Cup winner in 1982 with Italy.
At the peak of his powers, he fractured his skull in a collision with the opposing goalkeeper that also stopped his heart on the pitch for half a minute but he was revived and eventually recovered to play another five seasons for i Gigliati.
Classy player and one of the club's greatest-ever servants.
EDIT: That absolutely gorgeous home shirt is also quite possibly the best in the club's history.
