Intros are so weird.

Yo, 'sup.

I'm AJ. You probably know me from my previous incarnation as the Toychest Snarker, or better as one of the founders and moderators of the American Girl Collectors Message Board, which I started with my friend Neth of American Girl Outsider. Life as a reviewer was fun, but it was time to move on.

So here I am! I am currently the owner of seven 18" dolls, and the title of the blog comes from the fact that one of them is green. No, I didn't dye her. No, she's not evil. She's just her. You'll get to know her, and that whole motley crew up there, as time goes on.

I only have a few rules.

- Don't be a dick.
- Don't be -phobic. No racist, homophobic, transphobic, cissexist, ableist, sizeist, violent rhetoric or bigoted speech is allowed in here. Period.
- You are welcome to disagree with me. But I expect you to have reasons, not just "You're wrong, NYAH NYAH!" You don't come into my house and piss on my floor and expect me to thank you for it.
- Opinions about turning historical dolls modern need not be expressed. I have my reasons, which will eventually be outlined, for doing so and you telling me how wrong you think it is isn't going to change them.
- And, just to repeat: Don't be a dick.
