My real name is Michelle Dockrey, formerly Michelle Hansard. (Rhymes with 'answered.')
I'm thirty, but I'm told I look about fourteen.
My maiden name's British; a couple hundred years ago, a guy
named Hansard and his kids were in charge of Parliament's records. After a
few generations, the official House of Commons report was named for them--the
Weekly Hansard--and it's still called that today. I get a kick out of saying
that I come from a long line of secretaries. I've even got our coat of arms;
maybe one of these days I'll put it up.
I live in Seattle, where I'm currently trying to break into
children's illustration and possibly comics pencilling. I also do part-time
consulting work for my friend Erin, doing graphics and matainence for the
Lab at Purdue University (OWL).
I was briefly a teacher; I spent two years obtaining my Master
in Teaching at the University of Washington, about a year teaching sixth and
eigth grade special ed, and well... let's just say I decided that teaching
was not for me.
I live with my fiance GrendelFish,
our good friend Xia,
and two cats. We (the humans, not the animals) also form an amateur musical
group called Escape
I spend a whole lot of time on the internet, particularly
in places called MOOs, where I met my Fishy and most of my current friends.
Sometimes I have a webcam up. When it will be on is entirely
at my whim. You can view it here. No schedules,
no promises, no porn.
That's about it; anything else you need to know is covered
in the links. Or you can ask me.
