What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

Pallas Athena is an ancient Greek goddess, patroness of war, wisdom and the household arts, among other things. The owl and the olive tree are among her attributes.

She has long been one of my favourite goddesses, and when I develop an interest, it always seems to connect back to her in some way. (I fence, I sew, I love good olive oil, I've petted an owl. And so on.)

Other things about me: I'm fond of animals, wild green places, Shakespeare and good cheese. And people who employ singers-- I love them.
