My verdict - it's not t-shirt weather out there, and I found out the hard way. Anyhow, here's a survey, stolen from Frances:

1. Your LiveJournal Username: UnknownJ
Explain what it means: It's short for The Unknown James (a name I've had online for the last 5 years), first used when I needed an 8 character name for something.
2. The "name" that you chose to use (if not your USER name): Jamie
3. Explain how you picked / why you selected the user picture(s): Um, they're either pictures of me because I'm vain, or pictures of my guitar pics which I took when I was feeling especially ugly
