Stolen from an old post of cadhla's

1. Your LiveJournal username:

2. Explain what it means:
"Ravenclawed" means indoctrinated into Ravenclaw House. I'm absolutely convinced that if I were a Hogwarts student, I'd be in Ravenclaw House. While I'm not the world's greatest student, I love to read and learn on my own time. I tried different variations of "ravenclaw" when I created this account. Ravenclaw+ed was the first one that wasn't already taken.

3. Explain how you picked / why you selected the user picture(s) that you have?

I have like 111 userpics, so it'd take forever to explain each one. I'll just say that they all appealed to me for one reason or another. My default userpic, for example, was my first lj userpic. firelion made it just for me -- it's me as a Hogwarts student.
