Hi, everyone, my name is Emily. I'm a graphic designer and (of course) aspiring writer living in Virginia Beach, VA. I found AW through a friend's website and signed up hoping to make new friends and find some inspiration. I'm interested in technical writing as a new direction on my career path, and I love writing essays and fiction in my spare time.

Funner things to know about me:
- I make KILLER mac-n-cheese and chocolate chip cookies
- I have four weirdly awesome cats: an elderly, deaf Siamese; a very effeminate bobtail; a rude and selfish long-haired calico; and a heavy-set, not-so-bright orange tabby
- I use netspeak in everyday conversation, greatly confusing my friends and family members who don't know what WTF or OMG means.
- My favorite "guilty pleasure" movie is The Hot Chick with Rob Schneider. It's campy and corny, but it's also a sweet "best friends for life" story.
- My boyfriend's nickname for me is Dorcas. Cuz I'm, well, a dork.

It's a pleasure to meet you all!

You, are my friend for life, if I had to be killed I'd want it to be by mac n cheese and cc cookies!
Wow, four feline muses, lucky you! I am now severely allergic to cat saliva and cannot have another cat:cry:.

Welcome to the Cooler. You seem delightfully eccentric and, thus, I'm sure you'll fit in well here.

Welcome Emily!

If your elderly siamese has arthritis, ask your vet re: glucosamine to help the joints or remedil if s/he has trouble with stiffness. (had a 19.5 yr old cat)
