Emily, if you don't know who I am, why are you reading my journal?

I'm reading it because you were listed as one of the people who had me listed as a friend. Still no clue as to who you are.

There's a full bio of me available at my website or you can ask around to the other people that have me listed as friends. I think you know most of them in person.

What a lovely dragon border! That's great! With a scroll too! *boggles*

I prefer my posts to be shortish but every so often I end up in a verbose mood, looking back with horror at the monstrosity I just typed...
