since neither of my lj's are conducive to either personal information or meme's, you get the pleasure of both - in one! - here at whysper. granted, whysper isn't such a meme place either, but since this is along the lines of 100 things, 5 questions, either/or, or in fives, i figured it was okay for whysper.
1. First name?
if you know me, you know my name. if you don't, it's easy to find. either way, i don't much answer to it unless you're my mother.
2. Were you named after anyone?
not to my knowledge.
3. Do you wish on stars?
on rare occasion.
4. When did you last cry?
watching the tribute of those who passed away this year on the sag awards, especialli when jerry orbach came up. i don't think any actor's death has affected me so deeply.

sometimes. since the pc, it's gotten a little less neat and tends to fall apart quite quickly, but i think it's neat and unique when it works.

12. How do you release anger?
