The Kim is a creature of rather pathetic and diminutive stature, standing under five feet tall, a height that she claims is average in Japan. She has been the postmodernist’s answer to Emily the Strange since 1973. Naturally black of hair and pale of skin, the Kim is has the night-loving tendencies of a vampire but the culinary preferences of a gorilla, eschewing all animal products including the ever-so-innocuous Cheese family and its diabolical cousin, Ice Cream.
The Kim holds a mysterious attraction for spiteful cats, young children, cows, face-eating butterflies, and wild turkeys and is therefore unable to enjoy long walks in the forest without being attacked.
CARE AND FEEDING OF YOUR KIM
While awake, the Kim needs to be fed dead plants at intervals of every three hours, preferably in situations where hot tea is provided.
The Kim requires the near-constant companionship of her familiar, a feline of similar coloring named after a 1989 anime film by Hayao Miyazaki called Kiki’s Delivery Service.
The Kim, being largely antisocial, is known for turning down party invitations. She can be found in her apartment on most weekend nights with the aforementioned familiar, Kiki. It is not advised to allow your Kim outside after one a.m. as she quickly becomes miserable.
THE MUSICAL KIM
The Kim has far more unnecessary musical training than most circus monkeys. The Kim has invented more than 20,000 original songs, a handful of which are published; the whopping remainder are directed at the unfortunately large ears of her familiar. The Kim is the author of her own illustrated Guitar Method Book. A Piano Method Book is also planned for the distant future. The Kim is very fond of Music Theory and has designed a t-shirt line to raise awareness for Music Theoryphilia.
THE WRITING KIM
The Kim, like the small dark Leprechaun she resembles, attracts an inordinate and unexpected amount of luck. Nowhere else is this more highly evidenced than the enormous popularity of her first novel, Forever Fifteen. Released independently as a free audiobook in 2005, Forever Fifteen has an obscene number of wonderful, intelligent, delightfully twisted fans. The Kim tries to maintain a writing schedule of 1000 words a day, an activity about which she tweets, as a form of appeasement to the fanship.
If you would like to interact more with the Kim, you are invited to friend her on Facebook or to ferret her out in any of her many habitats:
