I was away from Swap-Bot for a while, but now I am back!
I am a nerdy, obsessive, crafty, tea guzzling, gaming nut. Yeah, that about sums me up! Ok, you want something more informative....
I am a Geek, hardcore fan-girl Geek. It shapes my life. I spend a lot of time making things out of perler beads and I bet you can guess what inspires them. I hoard dice, get obsessed with games, and will talk about whatever fandom, game, etc that I am obsessed over until I am blue in the face. I am not just a gamer girl type Geek, I also fit in the collecting knowledge and spending way too much time reading category of Geek.
But there is more to me than just being a giant nerd. I love tea, always have and have just gotten more and more obsessed as I get older. I love trying new teas and then writing lengthy descriptions about them, I love reading and researching the history and culture of tea, I love collecting tea pots and fancy tea tools.
When the weather allows it, I love to go mushroom hunting. I don't eat them, instead I use them for photography and spore prints. It is my dream to one day become a Mycologist studying slime molds.
I have Fibromyalgia and RA, it sucks, but I feel people who are going to interact with me should know since I tend to vanish because of it. So fair warning!!
I also have cats, love the ocean and all aquatic life, love cheese, and collect hats.
Ghost Adventures, Suvivorman, Good Eats, Bizarre Foods, Mythbusters, The Daily Show, Futurama, Bleach, Trigun, Cowboy Bebob, Ghost in the Shell, and most shows on the Travel Channel, History, Science or Discovery
I admit, I do not watch a lot of TV (what with the lack of cable) I just catch my favorites online or on netflix.
Repo! The genetic Opera, The Fifth Element, Labyrinth, Legend, The Dark Crystal, Marie Antoinette, Kill Bill, Fight Club, Hero, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Lord of the Rings, Ink,
I love movies with lots of action, beautiful graphics or animation, great soundtracks, and fascinating visuals.
I should list the books I like...but really I would be typing all day! I love reading a good sci-fi or fantasy novel...but my real love is sponging knowledge, no matter how useless! I have a tendency to sponge mythology, nature, science, and history the most.
Feel free to visit my goodreads account for my rather ridiculous reading history.
Miniature painting (like wargame painting, not painting tiny portraits) origami, nature photography, cross stitch, and recently sewing. I just like making stuff.
Things I like:
Anything sea or fish related (octopuses especially)
unusual cat things, plushies
mushrooms, moss, odd leaves
anything involving myths or history
Religious stuff (any religion, unless requested)
most kids stuff
any bath products that are not organic (skin issues, sad since I love so many smells)
bright pink things (pale pink is fine)

Also two cats...both were rescues. Tao my black and white little pudgeball loves to sleep in the window, watching the world go by. She has a mothering streak that is wonderful, anytime anyone is in any form of distress she comes and tries to make it all better. Tao has the most awesome marking, on her shoulder is a perfectly formed black heart! She loves strings, feathers, the laser and lots of catnip!
Espeon. My little ball of Chaos!! I think I should have named her tempest because she is like a little storm (plus she looks like Pietersite) She is a kitten Tortoise shell German Rex and is one of the most affectionate cats I have ever known. She will play with anything, seriously nothing is safe from her. Her favorite toy is her collection of straws
Yeah, my video games get a section. My favorites would be: MINECRAFT!!!!! Katamari (all of them!) Mortal Kombat (all of them) Grandia, Spyro, Mario (classic SNES 1,2,3) Mass Effect, Maximo, Kingdom Hearts, Kirby All Stars, Bleach Shattered Blade, FFX, FFVII, FFVIII, Batman Arkham Asylum and City, Asura's Wrath, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, War for Cybertron
Since most the swaps I do are tea related I might as well talk about my favorites and dislikes.
I am not a huge fan of: Lemon teas, Mint teas (unless mixed with other flavors) and fruit/herbal teas (again, unless mixed with other things...like Blueberry green or Apple Chamomile)
I am not really picky and love to try anything new! Tasting new teas is one of my favorite hobbies and frequent subjects of my blog posts, and if you send me something I cannot use, no worries it will find a good home ^_^
