PS Miss Aetherly, I feel it only proper to warn you that your avatar appears not to be wearing any trousers!
I was rather disappointed with the available options, save for the tights.

If that is the nearest facial likeness available on the site, one cannot help but be reminded of a certain memorial in a certain cematery.

Indeed. Said resemblance had been noted many years ago, such that I used a photograph of St Marx* as my avatar in a number of fora before the persona of OldProfessorBear had fully formed.
You may judge for yourself (with difficulty I fear) from the photograph below (courtesy of Comrade stubornson of the mass_steam brigade). Look to the left (from the subjects' point of view - your right). I'm afraid my gawthesque shirt was at the cleaner's so that the blue proley work-type shirt had to be substituted. My semi-annual beard trim had recently been applied, so it is not as full as usual. My apologies.
*St Marx - an allusion that will only be apparent to East Village hippies from the 60s.
