Name Meme (As a time waster.)

My online name is GaanEden. It comes from one of my author pseudonym being Eden Blackthorn. Since there were too many people trying to be "Eden" online, I added the "Gaan" which makes my name mean "Garden of Eden" in Hebrew - though, Gan as an extra "a" in it. There is, in fact, a Jewish winery named Gan Eden

My real name is Jennifer. I was named after the lead female love interest in the movie Love Story. If you were born in 1970-1972 and your name is Jennifer, this movie is probably the reason why.

My LJ is called "Apocalypse Girl" with the subtitle "Dreamer Interrupted" because of two things - I have a complete and total fascination (bordering on obsession) with apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction. Also because, as an author, I always have my head in the clouds. I live worlds inside my head. I am a Dreamer. When I have to deal with the real world, my dreams are interrupted - but are often inspired by what I see.

My F-Page is called "West of Eden" because it is a play on my nickname and the phrase "East of Eden". Really. That's it. Nothing more interesting.

My default icon is usually the latest picture of me so people know who they are reading. Occasionally, I will have the icon of just my lips because I often feel like I am sitting next to someone, whispering in their ear, when I type out an LJ entry. In my mind's eye, I see my lips whispering into someone's ear. You can't see either of our faces. Just parts because when I write, you only see part of what I'm thinking.

It strikes me that in Zen tradition, heaven is to the west of Earth. So West of Eden would clearly be Heaven... :P
