.// about the author hey there, hi there, ho there! most people call me mori-chan ( or mori ), though a few call me by various other names. i am eighteen years of age and an ardent fan of comics, broadway musicals, pre-eisner disney products, comedy and action movies. i am a former anime and manga junkie, but now i indulge myself in american comics. my other hobbies include reading ( preferences: historical fiction, sci-fi and fantasy ), acting, writing and singing. i have attended private schools all my life, but try not to hold that against me. i think for myself and believe what i believe, not because someone told me to, but through my own experience, searching and information gathering. i am a protestant, and do not attend church very often, however i do know my way around the Good Book. i base my opinions and ideas upon it, however i am quite open-minded and do not condemn those that believe differently than i do—even if i do know that i am always right. if you want to argue with me, fine, however i am quite stubborn and often arguements end in an 'agree to disagree' type deal. also, because i know you care, i will be attending texas christian university in the fall. how exciting. go horned frogs. :D
.// about the journal within the entries of this journal are controversial opinions that are slanted to a conservative judeochristian view, as well as rants about my lame exsistence, updates about my misadventures aaaaaand the random survey or personality quiz, but i generally keep those under an lj-cut so people don't whine at me. if you don't care for that sort of thing, then you don't have to bother reading. if you want to argue my views, go ahead, just keep it educated. i may only have a high school diploma at this juncture, but i am not an idiot--i may lack a little common sense now and again, but i am not stupid. i also do not believe in most of the post-modern philosophy that is spouted out at me. live and let live is fine, but it ceases to be relevent when you start a debate as the whole point of an argument is usually to find out which way actually can properly coexist with reality, which means someone must be right and anothe wrong ... or, if both are wrong, one must be ‘closer’ to being correct than the other. i believe a lot of the things the greeks said about philosophy, ethics and all sorts of other things. aristotle is my ‘homeboy.’
Also, this journal is currently FRIENDS ONLY. For the longest time I detested the idea of having my life ( how boring it is ) and my opinions ( how strong they are ) censored and barred from viewing ( especially since some readers aren’t apart of livejournal ), but due to recent circumstances I have decided to fall in line and go friends only. However, if you wish to join me, you may. Simply reply tothis entry, telling me that you are adding me. If you have a reason, share it ... please just don’t add me to make your friends list longer.
.// about the layout Yes, this is my eighteenth layout ... that may sound like a lot, but, hey. I have had this baby for over five years now and sometimes a little change can be a good thing. Anyway, as you may be able to tell I have a PhD in geekiness with an emphasis in Batman. The current layout depicts my favorite character, Miss Helena Rosa Bertinelli aka The Huntress. The layout is based on a Mara Jade on by khallandra. All the HTML is hers, all graphics containing images of the Huntress, however, are mine. They were created in Adobe Photoshop of Awesome. The artwork is by Mr. Ed Benes during his art run on the comic book Birds of Prey. I love his work like a fat kid loves cake. Seriously.
