Hey Emily, don’t worry. I’ve been reading your blog for a while and I like what you write. Your blog is part of the few blogs that I read fully. I don’t skim.
As for your friend, she’s just jealous of your talents. The more successful you become, the more hater you’ll have. Don’t worry about your tattoo. I find it fetching.
Personally, I can’t stand people writing in caps. That should be banned.
I think of you as Ladytron-like for no other reason that you’ve spent some time in Russia and Ladytron has a few songs in Bulgarian.
I really like your Mind Googling concept.
Oh, and remember Susannah? Well, you can get your fix of Schadenfreude by reading this.
