I was gonna go with "Jinx" under a ladder, but then changed my mind and settled on a black cat because of the debate about whether a black cat crossing your path is good luck or bad luck.
Jinx, I think that with a tiny amount of tweaking, your avatar could be made to look both like a black cat, and the silhouette of an old lady sitting in a rocking chair, depending on your frame of mind when looking at it. You know, like that picture of an old lady, who at the same time is a picture of a young woman turning her head away. Actually, at first glance, I really thought your avatar was
the silhouette of an old lady in a rocking chair.
Not that an old lady in a rocking chair has anything to do with you
... I just think it's a fun idea.
Do you have the program Paint? If so, you can shrink your pictures. It's easy, you just choose "change size" somewhere in the top panel, if I remember correctly.

Actually, that's not a bad idea. That's a really good idea. Would you mind if I stole it?
After I watched the movie Sin City, I really felt like drawing a black-and-white picture of myself, similar in style to the classical Che Guevara t-shirt. For this, however, I needed a relly high-contrast picture of myself - preferably one where I looked cool. After some search, I found a great spot in the town at night under a bright light and in front of a reflective window, and took a picture with my camera phone. This was easily traced into what is now my avatar, which is actually made by hand, in acrylic paint, I think. I guess it would be easier to do in Photoshop. I certainly would if I could.
My signature is my entire CV.
