Mondocognito, Avatar?

Mechanical Operational Neohuman Designed for Observation

The term "Avatar" is a bit of a mystery to me. I suspect it comes, as used here, from the world of anime. The choice of avatar may open me up to a bit of Freudian analysis by some of my friends. The description, however, does seem to be fairly accurate. (Hat tip to The Last Amazon.)

Update: Muzzy, of Blogizdat, corrects me in the comments. (I should note that he - a friend of 20+ years - didn't start his comment with his usual "Mondo, you ignorant slut, . . .)
