Last week, Seneca Doane posted the DK4 Roll Call , which is a diary that takes a roll call of everyone here, and where you can tell us a little about yourself. This morning, wxorknot posted a diary inquiring about the history behind your username.
I love diaries like that. I've always loved finding out who is behind the keyboard, because it humanizes us. If you interact with someone online as a person, instead of just text on a screen, it enables you to carry an actual discussion, and (hopefully) a factual debate that doesn't devolve into meta falmewarz all the time.
This time, instead of knowing hard facts about you (Name, DOB, SSN, Blood Type, etc), I want to know about your experiences and history. Consider this diary the Lockup of DailyKos -- no real purpose, just filler because the world obviously doesn't produce news during the American weekend.
Feel free to answer as much or as little as you want. If a question hits a sore spot or you don't want to share, no worries, just skip it. :) If there's stuff not here that you'd like to share (say, a groundbreaking story that would put me on the map for having such a revelation in my diary?), please do so!
Jump the Soros Squiggle for the questionnaire.
