Explain your LiveJournal name and its meaning. When you're done, tag as many people as there are letters in your name.
"Selenite" means "of the moon" (derived from the Greek). It's the name of a gypsum crystal, and sometimes of aliens living on the moon. I picked it in the days before the World Wide Web to reflect my career goal: being the Chief Engineer of a lunar base. This was also the pre-Challenger disaster days when that looked doable. Now I write RPG articles about lunar settlements instead of trying to build one myself.
I tag: carbonelle, dryaunda, kd5mdk, noumignon, phoenixsinger, telophase, thegameiam, and tinymammoth.
