Aimee Bender Hello there visitor-- thanks for stopping by.
Just so you know-- I'm not accepting friend requests at this time, just because I'm trying to streamline/limit my internet worlds a bit. But, I can be reached via my website: flammableskirt.com, or through the USC English Dept.

All the best,
Aimee
