1. What does your LJ nickname mean?
It was actually more or less chosen at random. I couldn't come up with anything good, someone (welcomerain) pulled it off Google (I think) and I fell for it.
2. Elaborate on your icon photo.
I'm a Scorpio. It's a scorpion.
To elaborate, it's also from Legend of the Five Rings, an awesome game and setting I used to be heavily into. And Clan Scorpion ruled.
3. Did you lie about your age anywhere on the net?
No, but I'm vague a couple places.
4. How many LJ friends do you have?
...A lot? Like, around 100, not including communities and duplicates or what have you. Some chattier than others.
5. What is your current status?
6. What are you wearing right now?
Invader Zim T-shirt, jeans. No socks.
7. What is life to you?
"If bread is the first necessity of life, recreation is a close second."
"Life is short. Live it up."
-Nikita S. Khrushchev
8. What is love to you?
"The supreme happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves."
9. What kind of people do you hate most?
"We do not usually look for allies when we love. Indeed, we often look on those who love with us as rivals and trespassers. But we always look for allies when we hate."
10. What type of people do you like most?
"The good people sleep much better at night than the bad people. Of course, the bad people enjoy the waking hours much more."
11. What makes you happy?
Spending time with friends. Good comic books. Going to the movies.
12. Are you musically-inclined?
I enjoy singing, hence the karaoke. I can't play a single musical instrument (though I'd like to.)
13. What would you do if you woke up one morning and found out that the person you love most didn't exist, or was killed?
...What an odd question. I got nothing.
14. If you could go back in time and change ONE thing, what would you do?
...Convince whoever wrote Star Trek: the Next Generation that the Holodeck is a terrible idea.
15. If you MUST be an animal for ONE day, what will you be?
...Uh, a cat. Whatever.
16. Ever had a near-death experience?
No more than the "OMG that truck almost swerved into my lane" driving experience.
17. Name ONE obvious personality quality you have.
18. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now?
Joy Division, "Love Will Tear Us Apart"
19. Are you happy today?
20. Who will cut and paste this next?
Hmmm. I'm gambling on gelfling. Who might not, just to spite me.
