Good to hear from you, Gordon. It's been quite a while. (Almost five years, I think...)

Uncle Hyena
Yeah, this place is kind of a desert for actual content. I suppose I should feel sort of shameful about that, but I suppose I haven't felt like I've had much to say. I need to get over that, because I really need to start recording things for myself. Doing it for anyone else is sort of pointless, I'm thinking.

I was happy to stumble upon your livejournal. Google is occasionally a miracle worker.

My answers today:

1. Your Middle Name: Lin
2. Age: 38
3. Single or Taken: Single
If polyamorous, room on your dance card or is it full? Card is empty.
4. Favorite Movie: Empire Records, just because of the memories associated with watching it.
5. Favorite Song or Album: Minstrels of Mayhem: Now.Later, it will probably be something else.
6. Favorite Band/Artist: changes too frequently for any real answer
7. Dirty or Clean: Entirely more clean than I would like to be.
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: None of the above
9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Discussions on an off MKRealms, and one meeting at GenCon.
10. What's your philosophy on life? I should probably work on figuring that out, haven't yet in 38 years.
11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? Bottle, I don't see any bottle.
12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? I hate questions like these, so vague and meaningless.
13. What is your favorite memory of us? Defending Orcish society from the ignorant masses on MKRealms.
14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? I am not someone who is guilty about my pleasure.
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: My level 70 Orc Hunter in World of Warcraft is named for the main character in "Under the Wolf's Head".
16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the "world peace, etc." malarkey) - what are they? Enough money to live comfortably, a companion, and the ability to travel to see friends all over the world.
17. Can we get together and make a cake? It is possible, but unlikely.
18. Which country (or place outside any country) is your spiritual home? The Internet
19. What is your big weakness? Boobs, definitely boobs.
20. Do you think I'm a good person? I think 'good' is entirely too simple a term to describe you.
21. What was your best/favorite subject at school?
22. Describe your accent. American standard, unless I'm trying to do a voice.
23. If you could change anything about me, would you? Nope, you're Uncle Hyena.
24. What do you wear to sleep? Nothing.
25. Trousers or skirts? Me: shorts; her: skirts
26. Cigarettes or alcohol? If I had to choose, I'd go with the booze. I haven't drank since I split with Leslie.
27. Time travel: past or future? Future, because the past shouldn't be altered, imo.
28. Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you? Not applicable.
Oops, forgot one.

21. What was your best/favorite subject at school? Creative Writing, though you wouldn't know it from the last 20 years or so. One more thing that I really should work on, I suppose.
And in that vein... I haven't written any more Tagrath stories, or orc stories at all, but I have been writing gnoll stories; it's a hyena thing...
