My journal is called _____ because _____.
My subtitle is _____ because _____.
My friends page is called _____ because _____.
And, just for the hell of it: My username is ____ because _____.

My journal is called It's Raining Zen because I try to surround myself with people who are working toward their own enlightenment. Or are at least funny.

My subtitle is hallelujah because that's the second line of the song. I'm too busy most of the time to be all clever.

BTW, I change my titles often. It used to be that my title was "Sapere Aude" (Latin for "Dare to be wise") and my subtitle was "Because if you don't nobody else will." I changed it because it seemed really presumptuous.

My friends page is called Witness My Dharma because I tend to have fewer drama queens and more dharma queens on my list. Dharma is right action. It's figuring out your place. It's doing what you're supposed to do. It's being a good person. My friends are mostly that.

My username is Junglemonkee because that's been my username all over the web since forever. I love monkeys because they look like people and react to certain stimuli in a very human-seeming way, leading EVERYONE to anthropomorphize them. In reality, nobody knows what the fuck monkeys are thinking at any given time. People often tend to think that they know what's going on when really, they're just pulling it out of their ass.
