LJ Idol: Exhibit A: Week 0

"Animagi can only take on the form of one specific animal. This animal form is not chosen by the wizard, but determined by their personality and inner traits. Thus, one's Animagus form is a reflection of one's inner nature."

The Indian Grey Mongoose can often be found near human civilization, but tends to be just on the outskirts - an outsider with convenient access to everything it needs on the inside. You can usually find them either alone or with a partner.

What makes the Indian Grey Mongoose so unique is that it is an extremely bold, curious animal, but also has a certain sense of shyness that prevents it from doing anything too crazy. Because of this, our friend I.G. Mongoose rarely leaves its habitat unless it has to. It's probably very tired from working two jobs and doesn't want to go anywhere. It will eat anything it can get its hands on for the most part, though it does typically stick to a carnivorous diet. Speaking of carnivores, it should be noted here that, unlike me, the mongoose s also completely immune to snake venom.

Lastly, it is important to note that the mongoose makes a noise while flirting, appealing to the opposite sex or just plain doing the deed that is best described as "giggling." And really, what other information could you possibly need?

I am so much like this. :)

Also Pixel is a great name for a cat!
That right there is one adorable mongoose. Also, yay for wacky kitties!
The eraser incident is what I find most interesting about you. I can understand having an overactive conscience; it doesn't go well with an overactive imagination.
I once stole something tiny from a store without realizing that's what I was doing. It was a little paperclip type figurine thingum, I stuck it in my pocket and forgot about it and showed it to my mom when we got home. She was like, "You STOLE that!!" And I was so overwhelmed by her being upset because I thought she'd like it. So that was how I learned not to steal.
What a great. Kitty name! I work in education too. I piece-meal jobs also to stay in the biz. It sux, but its the work I love. I feel your work pain. AW
I wish I could say I had a Lab named Pixel. That would be too funny!

(alas... his name, while having a "P" and an "X" in it, is otherwise deficient in appropriate letters).

Nice to meet you. I've always enjoyed cats that act like dogs. Maybe because I like dogs, but I'm allergic to them (but not to cats).
It strikes me that actually owning a mongoose could be awkward. Plus, I think Pixel is much cuter than a mongoose.
Creative intro! I have no idea what my animagus would be, if I had one, but your description of the I.G. Mongoose sounds a lot like me, too. ;)
Oh man. Look at your cute little nose. *scratches you behind the ears*
Your final confession is amazing, and exactly the sort of thing I would feel bad about as well.
Haha! This was fun and unexpected!

Any self-respecting mongoose would be tired from working two jobs. And do you find yourself 'near but not in' groups or trends and whatnot?

I see you're also an SPN fan...

LOL - that's a nifty animal. I live in Central KY, so we're not too far away. I'm not immune to snake venom either, and have four cats. Howdy, neighbor!
I want a giggling mongoose now. I would be protected from snakes and have someone to laugh at my jokes.
I love your metaphor -- what a wonderful way to introduce yourself. :)
