"You're all different!"

My avatar is something I came up with a goodish while ago to fit my nickname. I got dubbed Jinx by university friends because when they were on a roll on a fruit machine I'd walk in and their luck would change.

The image is something I use a lot, originally I was gonna print a T-Shirt with it, but now it's on everything. My avatars, icons for programs I write I've even been working on a small watermark to put in the corner of graphics I make now.

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.

When you hear a man shouting "Forward, brave comrades!" you'll see he's the one behind the bloody big rock and wearing the only really arrow-proof helmet!

I don't have an Avatar as none of my pics are small enough but my signature is my life :lol:

By the way forgive me for using blue Typing and bold, but I have poor eyesight and that combination works best for me.
When I was young I was called a rugged individualist
When I was in my fifties I was considered eccentric
Here I am doing and saying the same things I did back then and now I'm labelled senile

It has been commented on before that the standard font size is a little small on this forum - I know I have trouble with it. The blue and bold is a little easier to read, so sure, go ahead. IT'S NOT LIKE YOU WERE POSTING IN BLOCK CAPS OR ANYTHING!






I COULD MURDER A CURRY! :lol:
