I am soooo tempted by this. Kenny should probably make it a requirement to sign up for journalscape.
Reminder: the following is a bunch of narcissistic malarkey.
1. WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND YOUR USER NAME?
God, this is a great lead in question. I first started using piscis about the time I got on the internet, somewhere in the murkiness of 1993. I've routinely used it since, though there was a time back in prehistoric email when I went by the Venerable Cat. My name has a twofold meaning. First, I was born in March, so I am a pisces. Secondly, it is the singular, nominative form of the latin, so the fish or the sign of the fish, i.e. sign of a christian.
2. NAME FIVE  OF YOUR FAVORITE FOODS.
3. HAVE YOU EVER HAD A MAKEOVER?
Am I female? Did I grow up in the 80's? Yeah. I had a makeover.
4. HAVE YOU EVER WITNESSED DEATH?
Of hamsters, fish, dogs, birds, distance relatives, a grandparent here and there, bosses, high school bullies....that is as close as death has come to me.
5. WHAT'S THE LONGEST TIME YOU'VE
STAYED OUT OF THE COUNTRY/WHERE?
I lived in Rome, Italy for 4 months in an ex-convent rented out to these people. While I was there I traveled to Germany, Switerland, Belgium, and France. It was great except I was working through issues with what to do about guru then, so I missed some of the entertainment. I was lucky enough to read tolken for the first time, mainly on the train from Rome to Bonn, Germany. It was astounding.
6. ONE THING YOU'RE GRATEFUL FOR, TODAY.
I'm home! I'm thankful that god lead us to this great house and that all the ends are still being met.
Oh, and that Star of India does take out!
7. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HIGH SCHOOL MEMORY?
Getting a 92 Superior Rating for Marching Band my senior year, my 1st year on the mellophone. (long long dull dull story involving musical insturments and KY)
Band trip to Virginia Beach and the poetry that insued.
Designing and Painting a full size backdrop on my own, in my own zone.
Seeing Hair the Musical in Lexington with BS when I was suppose to be in 5th Period English, 2 hours away.
8. WHAT IS THE MOST INSANE THING YOU'VE DONE FOR/TO YOUR LOVE?

Every craft and artsy-fartsy activity I can get my hands on. Swiming. Playing cards over at our friends houses, playing viola in a ametur group for the fun of it. Traveling to museums, basically what I'm doing now, sans the work. Oh, and plus a dog.
