2. Elaborate on your icon photo? It's Gir from Invader Zim! He's dancin'! Weeee!!! I'm a fan almost to the point of obsession (almost?). Gir is also the name of my beloved PowerBook, and since I consider him to be an extension of me, it fits.
3. Did you lie about your age anywhere on the net? No
4. How many LJ friends do you have? 39
5. What is your current status? Short answer: married. Long answer: I'm 1/4 of a polyfidelitous quad, along with femetal, redheadlass, and zensidhe. We collectively refer to ourselves as "The Smoosh".
6. What are you wearing right now? Jeans, sneakers, and a Company t-shirt. I'm at work.
7. What is life to you? Potential. Life is the baseline requirement for everything else. It is what I crave in limitless quantities, both for myself and for all of humanity that wants it.
8. What is love to you? 1) A biochemical reaction relating to pair and group bonding- a mechanism created by evolution to promote the survival and reproduction of mammals in groups. 2) Reciprocated obsession 3) A source of tremendous happiness and security.
9. What kind of people do you hate most? Ones who are trying to kill me or those I care about, or any who seek to subjugate, censor, or restrict others.

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? Go (more) insane. I'm sure that eventually I could adjust and recover, but I can't imagine how I'd even begin. It makes me uncomfortable to even think about.
14. If you could go back in time and change ONE thing, what would you do? Go to bed at a reasonable hour last night. There are other things, but not that I'm willing to share with the world. Besides, too many of the good things in my life are the result of serendipity. I'd hate to risk losing them to chaos theory.
15. If you MUST be an animal for ONE day, what will you be? An eagle. I'm fascinated by flight, and birds of prey are awesome.
