Field notes on The Emma; a rare species of girl

The Emma is a very interesting individual, whom we have been very honored to have been able to study for the past couple years. With many peculiar habits, the weirdest being that she puts up with the antics of an even odder being, most commonly know as "The Jillian".

The Emma is a creature with a strong motherly instinct, and an excellent work ethic.

She is an extremely beautiful specimen of humanity, but fortunately for her, she has The Mr. T (I pity the fool who messes with his spawn) to fend off the arms of Mormon boys making their moves in libraries.

The Emma, while being thought by many as "emo" is in fact,
not. We feel greatly that in order to be classified as "emo" you must have a greater emotional range than The Emma possesses.
The Emma has 6 basic emotions which she flips through almost instantaneously. 
What are they, you might ask?
Happiness, Sadness, Indignation, Confusion, Remorse, and Apathy.

The Emma's diet consists mainly of Skippy, coffee, tomatoes and whatever she happens to be chewing on whilst trying to communicate to her peers.

The Emma's natural habitat, while sometimes quite nosy, is rather cheerful and relaxed.

The Emma is extremely talented at the art of dancing around in a way that is most lovely.
The Emma has a repulsion to doing jumping jacks to the beat of The Black Eyed Peas, much to her companion, The Jillian's amusement.
We are continuing our research. In fact, we may never know every angle of The Emma.
She is a very complex part of creation.

  4. Haha, this is really adorable. :)

  5. A very cool way of laying it all out about Emma

  6. Yes, my best friend is infinitely fascinating.

  7. I would have to say that this post makes me happy. But since the only emotions I could possibly have regarding this post are happiness, sadness, indignation, confusion, remorse or apathy, that's probably fairly obvious. :p

    Love it, Jace.
    I feel so honored.

  8. Ah, what it must feel like to have a friend! I bet it feels warm, satisfying, maybe a little sharp...I had a friend once. She didn't talk much except when I pushed a button on her hand and she told me he loved me. That was nice.

I love hearing things that aren't my own pathetic echoes.
