Lindaithiel, which in Tolkien's elvish language means Singing Laughing Maiden. I got this nickname from my boyfriend when we were still friends. We were driving back from visiting someone and we were laughing and singing to the radio. So he gave me the nickname and it's stuck ever since.

ehhh......mine doesn't really make sense when you break it down, which makes it more like slang.

Pent up - enclosed, restrained from willful movement
Entropy - A study of chaos as related to the amount of heat in a vacuum or it can be as simple as two reactions canceling each other such as an ice cube melting in a glass of water.
So, slangly - restrained chaos. Not that I'm chaotic, just that we lack control, or only have the illusion thereof. So my nickname really kind of suits all of us.
I think I got it from reading too much, but if anyone wants a good list and you haven't checked them out yet... Check out Lee Smolin - 3 roads to quantum gravity, Henri Bergson - Time and Free Will - a Collective Essay on the Immediate Data of Consciousness (good for qualitative v quantitative thinking), My new personal fav : A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines - DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVE BEEN SUICIDAL AT ALL LATELY. I swear to god it was the most depressing thing I have ever read. Also check out: Anything by Sartre, though I would recommend Existentialism and Human Emotion first, and Nausea if you would like to follow it with "Being and Nothingness" (also depressing, but not nearly as much), Steven Pinker, Bertrand Russell, Pappineau - a good book for beginner consiousness... Introductino to Consciousness (high school level stuff). Anyway, if you already read most of that stuff, now you have a good idea for what I'm mostly about.
