I Like To Think It's Cleverer Than It Actually Is.

So, I've explained what my picture is, I suppose it's time to explain my name. Zul. Why Zul? Well, there's actually a little story behind that. And it's nerdy. Exceptionally nerdy. Like, uber-nerdy, even for me.

So if you don't want to hear me describe my incredibly nerdy alias, stop reading now.

Sooo... Zul. It's actually short for the full name, Zuldim, which would properly be written Zul'dim. You see, it's translated from Zandali, the language the Trolls in World of Warcraft. Yes, I told you it was extremely nerdy.

Zul (Rhymes with cool) is a prefix to a word that means great, or to a name that means great chieftain. Dim (As in the light is dim) is the word you get if you type "lol" into the chat speaking in Zandali, and a non-troll reads it. Therefore, Zul'dim would loosely translate into "Great chieftain of the lolz". I like it. I think it suits me. It sounds good if you don't know what it means, and it's kind of funny if you're nerdy enough to understand it.

Also Trolls are awesome, and I'm a freaking huge nerd about the lore for Trolls in that game. It's sad, I know. But Trolls are freaking awesome.
