Name: Emilly Orr. (Emily is often seen; Em, Emmie, Emmy, one DJ insists on referring to me as Emmy-Lou, but he is from Texas; Emi is generally just for close friends. But in general, I won't mind making the short name shorter.)
SL Rez Day: July 10, 2006
Blog: Welcome to the Train-Wreck Love Life (Warning: Drama alert!)
Occupation: Event host at large, perky shopgirl in Caledon Penzance, barkeep of der Hut des Jaegers in Winterfell Absinthe, Europa Consulate staff (and, apparently, at least temporary keeper of the Wulfenbach Naval Fleet), translator (for a fee, please, I am revealing Girl Secrets!) of Girlspeak into Guyspeak.
Favorite Music: It's easier to list what I don't like. Noisecore, I can't stand noisecore. I dislike in the extreme thug rap (barring Ice T). I don't like really whiny/twangy country (think George Strait, Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard) (though I'm fine with the new stuph--think Dixie Chicks, Kane, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt). And I'm not crazy about heavy metal/death metal groups that can't sing (think Cannibal Corpse and Napalm Death, not Cradle of Filth or Opeth).
Favorite TV Shows: House. Bones. CSI. Law & Order: SVU. Burn Notice. Dirty Jobs. MythBusters. And StarGate, Angel, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer repeats.
Favorite Movies Listed on my profile. 🙂 But I'll mention Sweeney Todd, Nightmare Before Christmas, Arsenic & Old Lace, Desk Set, The Piano, Reefer Madness, Rent, and Victor/Victoria. You might detect an unabashed love of musicals, there. In addition: unrepentant horror fan, unrepentant fan of stop-motion animation.
Favorite Books: Unrepentant reader, too. But I'd toss in Mindplayers by Pat Cadigan, Falcon, Finder and Bone Dance by Emma Bull, the Terre d'Ange series by Jacqueline Carey, the Samaria series by Sharon Shinn, and just about anything Marion Zimmer Bradley, Zenna Henderson, William Gibson and Jim Butcher have written.
Favorite Quote: "I have a vested interest in being confrontative." (Richard Dreyfus)
Can Frequently Be Found: In Caledon Penzance, Victoria City, Rivula, Avaria, or in trouble.
Quirky facts: According to Duchess Gabi, I have my own entourage. I can't entirely say she's wrong. My forté in building seems to be prim puns, at present. I can't stand sugar, in nearly all forms. I have a somewhat known love for challenge foods--think durian and haggis--and a very well known love for bad movies (think Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things and Slashers). Shapeshifter and Unseelie Sidhe, though neko most of the time. (In other words, if you don't recognize the person under the name tag, trust me, you're not alone.)
[4:55] Dannyboy Lightfoot: nice to see you can still say something that clearly makes complete sense in the world you inhabit, but is brilliantly meaningless to me
[0:08] sachi Vixen: do you ever sleep?
[0:08] Emilly Orr: Why does everyone keep asking me that?
[12:24] Stiv Kaczmarek: Wonder what sanity tastes like?
Usually, I wouldn't know. 🙂
