Lanthorn found her name long ago during a WikiWalk through the HPLovecraft pages as an example of the archaic English words he loved to use (it means lantern; I like to think it refers to those giant spiky ones you see attached to really old buildings).

Lanthorn [[strike: talks]] writes like this as a shout-out to {{Zoofights}}'s bar-tending {{Toku}}-squid Gezora.

Lanthorn loves wikis, summer action movies, winter OscarBait movies, {{Pixar}} movies, StudioGhibli movies, the {{LawAndOrder}}s, the {{CSI}}s, ''TopGear'', ''GunnerkriggCourt'', ''UsagiYojimbo'', ''OnePiece'', {{youkai}} and obakemono, ''{{Digger}}'', '''''{{Homestuck}}''''', and playing RoleAssociation (perhaps [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife a bit too much]]... what's [[{{AI}} Gigolo Joe's]] real name again? Y'know, [[Film/SherlockHolmes Dr. Watson]]?).

Lanthorn is Japanese-American and speaks excellent GratuitousJapanese. Her family was once interviewed by a Japanese film crew who were shocked (''shocked!'') that no one past the third generation spoke any Japanese.

*Additionally, ''{{Digger}}''.

Lanthorn wishes that she could get BBC America HD, and that it would show uncut episodes; at least they aired ''James May On The Moon'' (once), and ''Charles Darwin And The Tree Of Life'' (twice). Also, Animal Planet aired ''South Pacific AKA Wild Pacific'' (with [[DirtyJobs Mike Rowe]] narrating!) and Universal HD aired ''StephenFry In America''.

Two of Lanthorn's ''[[CtrlAltDel CAD]]'' entries (ExtremeDoormat and "{{Wangst}} Dissonance") were mentioned on SomethingAwful's [[{{Hatedom}} "CAD Mock Thread"]] megathread! As a long-time reader I'm honored! I'm also amused whenever someone brings up TV Tropes the quote posts are usually some variation of "[[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife DAMN YOU]], I should be studying/eating/sleeping/working right now!" or "[[TheSimpsons I want the last 8 hours of my life back!]]"

HAHAHAHA, I {{Squick}}ed-out someone with [[DirtyJobs Barsky's]] unusual choice of alternative medicine!

Oh... My... GOD... Someone compiled all my ''CodeBreaker'' entries into one page! Whoever you are I don't know how to thank you.
