    Oh wow, really? That's super weird, but I can assure you I'm not her.  I'm not even marginally Canadian, nor am I sassy. What I lack in sass, I make up for in... er... something else.

    Well, this is funny too) Every cat I've ever had was named Cat))) And my rats were named Rat, Pink, White and Blue. You see the tendency))

    Nah I know you're not her, she would have recognized my name immediatly, at least that's what I like to believe, we haven't spoken in years.

    Something else... Rancidiness?

    How could you name a cat just... Cat?  It's so impersonal...

    Well... I've never had more than one at a time))))

    My sister now has two. They are named Cat and Red

    I don't know seems fine to me. I've three cats back home and while they do have names I call them cat, all of them. With appropriate adjectives like fat, tiny, or nasty when I want to but most of the time it's just cat.

    Probably this has something to do with my lack of imagination)) I suck at naming animals even in my stories. The most original thing I have come up with is a cat named Ten Septims))

    Haha, to be honest, I don't call my cats by name very often (except a cat I had named Ezio - I couldn't help but use that one a lot xD). I usually just call them 'kitty' or 'baby' in really antagonising voices.

    Wow, I second Phil - you're even younger than me, man.  And definitely, definitely cooler than me. I can't even describe how much cooler you are than 15-year-old me.

    Phil, wait. Are you saying 15-year-olds aren't usually decent human beings?

    Well this looks like some fun!

    Even though I seem to be a bit late but why not!

     

    About You Off-Site:

    1.What be thy name? I generally go by Eli... (Which may be my real name)

    2.Where are ye from? A place that uses modern speech patterns!

    3.Where do ye reside? California... What can I say, I like drowning.

    4.Do you work? If so, where? Too lazy and "preoccupied"

    4.5.(I messed up and I'm too lazy to fix it...) How old are you? Sorry, but I'd rather not go into that...

    5.What do you look like? (Bonus points for a picture) Since I'd rather show you and I don't have even a half decent picture of myself currently, you'll have to go without!

    6.How tall are you? Last time I checked around 6 feet or so?

    7.What are five words to describe yourself? I'll do it tommorow... Maybe...

    8.What other hobbies do you have besides gaming? Reading, sleeping, day-dreaming, and hanging out with my pals.

    9.Do you have any pets? If so, how many and what are they? I have lots and they just can't be the same thing can they... Alright... Ready? Set. Go! Four dogs, one cat, the dogs are: a Golden Lab, a German Shepard, a Terrier, and a German pinscher while the cat is a Balinese mix I think...

     

    About You On-Site:

    1.What significance does your name have? Nothing really, just something me and a friend came up with a while back.

    2.What brought you here? The Elder Scrolls brought me here... They work in mysterious ways!

    3.How long have you been a member? Not long but I've already taken a liking to it and I plan on stikin' around!

    4.How long did you "lurk" before you joined, and what caused you to join? I had come to the site off and on for a while but didn't really "lurk" I suppose maybe, sorta... And as to what caused me to join? The Elder Scrolls! Didn't I explain this already?

    5.Why do you keep coming back? (Seriously, we've been trying to keep you away but you just. Keep. Coming. Back!) The tug of the power of an Elder Scroll is quite powerful... That and shacks (What a weird twist to such a simple game...)

    6.What's your favorite thing about the vault? The charm of the community in all honesty.

    7.Least favorite thing on the site? All the broken links! I've been dying to read Jo'ji and the Rogue but the links are all broken and I can't find the damn story anywhere!!!

    8.Do you prefer to stay in one group or branch out? While I'm planning on staying on the more Nirn side of things (I don't play much Fallout and don't know much lore...) I plan on delving as far as possible into the community that I can!

    9.Have you posted any original content on the site yet? I have some ideas for some builds and storys and what not but nothing physical yet... Or digital... You know what I mean!

    10.Have you made any freinds in the vault yet? I consider everyone I interact with to be a friend of some sort even if they're an ass, they just get my far more sarcastic side. The only way I wouldn't be they're friend is if they REALLY piss me off which I pride myself in being hard to piss off, but even then, I'll probably just go back to being cool with them after I've cooled off.

    Well, that's that, hopes this entertains to some extent!
