Hi, I'm Emily. These are the things that make me smile. I hope you do too.
These are some things that you might like to know…. I was not born in a hospital. I lived in a hotel in Denmark for third grade. I now live on a farm that “grows” paintballs, golf balls, blackberries and cherries. I work in a hippie health food store. I have never had a shot. I have matching scars on my ankles and knees because I am a rock star. I have never bought a Halloween costume. I collect keys, the majority of which are to the sewers of Spotsylvania, Virginia. I have been to both of my namesakes; one is a desert, the other - a city. I am German, Irish, Danish, Czech, Slovak, Norwegian, Russian, Australian, and Colombian. I have two beds. One is a racecar; it does not have a mattress, and is filled with fabric. I have never seen “Titanic.” I know my way around New York better than I know my way around my home town. I have jumped down an elevator shaft. I can operate power tools that should never be allowed in my hands. I have no pulse in my neck and my heartbeat is not rhythmic. I am allergic to the antibiotics that should make me better. I can make a cup out of 20 dollars. I was a Purdue cheerleader at the age of four. I own a sari and a kimono; and I know how to tie both properly. I have made a teapot, an iPod, a mermaid, a neuron, Clifford, a beer mug and a Blue-Eyes White Dragon out of cake. I was raised by hippies to be a hippie. Oh, and I lie a lot.
I bought some crappy baseball player Russian dolls at a flea market for $5 and repainted them to look like the Tardis, The Tenth Doctor, and Rose Tyler. My little sister is obsessed with Doctor Who and I’m going to give them to her for Christmas. Best Christmas present ever!
