About Me

I am a 34-year-old book, baking, and bunny lover. I spend my weekends puttering around my vegetable plot at the community garden, playing in my flowerbeds at home, whipping up a loaf of bread, and making cute mail. My favorite way to relax is with a cup of tea (Earl Grey, hot) and a good book in a bubble bath, because I live dangerously.

I am married to a videographer who is a lovely grump, and we have a disabled rescue rabbit named Rabbit Di Niro.

I steal toads. I am obsessed with frogs and toads and have three ponds. Whenever I go for a walk during the rainy times of year and spot a toad in the street or on the sidewalk, I snatch it up and take it home to live in my garden. I get loads of tadpoles and new lil toads every year. My garden is a registered wildlife habitat and I’m all about attracting wild creatures, but especially amphibians and hummingbirds.

Favorite Books

As a children's librarian, I read loads and loads of books. My happy place is re-reading Terry Pratchett's Discworld series or Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials.

Other favorite authors are Neil Gaiman, Barbara Kingsolver, Jason Reynolds, John Steinbeck, David Sedaris, Douglas Adams, Katherine Arden, Margaret Atwood, Elizabeth Acevedo, Tillie Walden, and Nneidi Okorafor.

I could read the poetry of Wallace Stevens and Gerard Manley Hopkins forever.

I love fantasy, dystopian sci-fi, and anything with a good dose of humor. Mostly I read middle grade novels and hoardes of children's and teen graphic novels, especially queer/GNC ones.

Favorite Television

I live for cozy television--Great British Bake Off, Queer Eye, Call the Midwife, and Downton Abbey.

Guilty pleasures are atrocious CW teen dramas that I rarely finish, including the recently discontinued ones. Think shows where the guys seem to be allergic to wearing shirts and the world is nearly ending (Supernatural, Arrow, etc).

Currently watching: Superstore, The Magicians, Outlander, and Brooklyn 99, eagerly awaiting the return of Archer and The Orville.

My fandoms are Downton Abbey, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Archer (I'm a Pam), Bob's Burgers (Louise) and Adventure Time (PB).

Favorite Movies

The Princess Bride is certainly the greatest movie ever made, and I've watched it hundreds of times. I have the soundtrack, had posters when I was a teen, included it in my wedding vows, and proudly sport some novelty buttons on my work lanyard.

Beyond that, I'm here for pretty much any Wes Anderson film (except for Life Aquatic).

I host tea parties where we watch period costume dramas, and boozy parties during the holidays where we gently mock terrible Hallmark-style Christmas romances.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy making cutesy mail art with washi tape and stickers and all that stuff.

Sometimes I get a bee in my bonnet about doing my fancy planner, and I've just started dabbling in watercolor.

I'm enthusiastically inept at lots of crafts, and I do enjoy but rarely pick up my embroidery and candle-making stuff.

Tea

I am a passionate fan of tea, especially flavored tea that’s dessert-inspired. I only drink tea, not herbal tea/tisanes, so any sent my way will be kindly re-homed. I prefer black tea most of all, but also enjoy green and white teas as well as pur-eh and oolong. I enjoy chai, matcha, single estate, and flavored-full leaf teas.

My favorite tea companies are Bird and Blend (UK), Murchie’s (Canada), Tea Embassy (US), and Savoy Tea Co (US). I mostly buy loose leaf for myself.

Mail!

I adore long letters, decorated envelopes, and handmade cards/postcards. My aesthetic is watercolor or ultra-realistic nature with metallic and holo accents. I enjoy rabbit, frog/toad, plant/wildflower, forest, orchid, butterfly, and dinosaur things. I love stickers (paper and puffy) and washi. Green is my favorite color!

Dislikes--please no Disney, Hello Kitty, Americana/patriotic, or religious/scripture.

Comment: Thank you! This one didn’t survive it’s journey well, but I did get the sturdy backer you made it on with just a corner smudged!
Response: Oh no! I debated covering the whole thing with packing tape, but decided against it. I am so sorry.

Comment: Thanks for the "sweet" postcard. I'm not a huge fan of donuts. I prefer cookies and ice cream.
Response: Sorry--I misinterpreted your like for Dunkin' Donuts--perhaps you just like their coffee?

Comment: Congrats on your first list. :) Your book stack does look a bit dangerous. Hopefully they won't fall on you as you read. :) I have had that happen to me a few times and it's just not fun. :) There are some really amazing YA books out there right now - I get so jealous of my kiddos for the awesome books they get to choose from. I read them, too, but I am a bit too old. :) Thanks for sharing your list :)
