WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND YOUR LJ USERNAME?

My previous one, Zombie, was too generic, I could never register anywhere with it without having to go through massive l33tification. I went with Harinezumi because it has overtones of both Japanese ("harinezumi" is Japanese for "hedgehog") and Russian (because hedgehogs are quite common in the woods around Moscow, and figure prominently in Russian folklore), is an anime reference (even though it turned out that the animal referenced in Evangelion's Hedgehog's Dilemma wasn't actually a harinezumi), and is a fairly accurate description of my own character. Plus hedgehogs are cute ^^

SO, WHAT'D YOU DO TODAY?

Woke up, read LJ, showered, went to work, loaded up the standard software on a laptop I formatted last night, did random tech support stuff, ordered software for the office, ate lunch with ketsugami and bluewasabi, browsed the web, hung around with my fellow staff and grad students at Thursday Tea, went home, took my car to the local Pep Boys to get a tire repaired, got back home and planted myself in front of the computer.

WHAT'S THE LONGEST TIME YOU'VE STAYED OUT OF THE COUNTRY/WHERE?

Depends on the country. ^^ I spent about 7 years in Russia/USSR, about 4 in Switzerland, and about 15 in the US, if you don't count the occasional month, week, or weekend I spent with my folks around Europe, Canada, Mexico, or Jamaica.

ONE THING YOU'RE GRATEFUL FOR, TODAY:

That my assistant knows more Unix than I do.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HIGH SCHOOL MEMORY?

Sitting in the school library's fiction section during free periods, reading through SF classic after SF classic.

WHAT IS YOUR WORST HIGH SCHOOL MEMORY?

The entirety of my 11th grade.

DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM WEDDING:

I'd rather avoid the custom altogether, but if I had to pick one, I'd have to go with a traditional Shinto wedding. There's a certain beauty to those that is entirely absent from the gaudy Christian weddings or the loud Russian ones.

READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

Not really, unless you count manga and online writings. The last truly good real book I read would probably have to be Haruki Murakami's "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World"

DOES SIZE MATTER:

Some things are too big, some things are too small, and some things are just right.

IS 15 MINUTES ENOUGH?

If you allow for Slavic punctuality.

WORST FASHION TREND:

Hip-hop

THE SCHOOL PICTURE YOU BURIED IN YOUR BOTTOM DRAWER?

Me and Ira Grishakova in our grade school uniforms and red Young Pioneer ties, together with our 3rd grade teacher on the last day of classes.

DO YOU HAVE ANY WEIRD FETISHES?

Let's just say that it's easier to list the things that don't turn me on than those that do.

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE OPPOSITE SEX?

Why more of them don't enjoy pr0n.

WHO IS YOUR BEST FRIEND?

ketsugami and kjpepper

WHO IS YOUR BOY/GIRL FRIEND?

Haven't had one since High School.

FOUR THINGS YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW:

3. Cozying up next to the radiator
4. Enjoying my evening dose of slack

GIVE YOURSELF A PORN STAR NAME:

Err, umm, Peter the Great? ^^

DO YOU HAVE ANY WEIRD SLEEPING HABITS?

Not really, just snore and have the ability to sleep through just about everything except the sound of a Casio wristwatch alarm.

WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO DO THIS SUMMER?

Go to Otakon, maybe visit my folks in Europe.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG RIGHT NOW?

Ария - С Кем Ты?

WRITE A LINE FROM ANY SONG:

Пепел падает медленно-медленно,
В голове - прямое включение,
Что-то поймано и потеряно.
Или жизнь или увлечение.

DO YOU KNOW AT LEAST ONE DISNEY SONG BY HEART? WHICH ONE?

Not really, was too old to watch Disney stuff obsessively by the time I learned English.

YOUR TYPICAL SLEEPWEAR:

Just my briefs.

WHAT'S IN YOUR WALLET?

My money wallet has bills, coins, and two platters from a disassembled laptop hard drive. My card wallet has 2 debit cards, 2 store discount cards, my CMU Staff ID, my CompTIA A+ Certificate card, my Driver's License/Registration/Insurance, and random cheat sheets with phone numbers, passwords, etc

HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR WALLET RIGHT NOW?

$99.41

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF SHOES?

My sneakers.

IF YOU COULD'VE GONE TO YOUR SENIOR PROM IN A DIFFERENT OUTFIT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

The rented tuxedo I went in.

Hope not ^^

Regular Pepsi or Bawls, depending on how badly I need caffeine.

5. An armored black Mercedes 600 with all the options ^^
