I live in the USA
SPECIAL NOTICE I am just coming back up to vertical after TWO WEEKS mostly in bed with an extreme sinus infection that tried (very hard) to be pneumonia. And now (today) they've decided to do some minor surgery tomorrow (12/04) morning. ERGH!!!
Rest assured, if I owe you something it will arrive. I'm putting 'em out as quickly as I can, WITHOUT SHARING my germs at the same time.
I work on a computer all day so I mostly avoid the one at home; however, if you send me a Swap-Bot message you'll get a really quick reply. If I owe you a rating, YELL AT ME. I have grey hair and I'm fine with admitting it doesn't hold in the memory that my brown hair did.
I am an old 50-something :) professional CADDmonkey, working in a large R&D lab. I have 3 indoor cats, a cockatiel, a spousal-unit, and a roommate. I am active in several clubs and like to travel. For fun, I keep up with the Atlanta Braves, read sci-fi novels, bowl on 3 leagues, play board games and cards, and enjoy exploring nature trails in our local parks. I collect old ceramic gravy boats. My favorite colors: Forest Green, Dark Brown, Bright Red. I like citrus-smells and images of dolphins.
I will listen to almost anything for a short time, but my passions are movie/show soundtracks (Matrix, XXX, Phantom, Cats), new age/alternative (Acoustic Alchemy), light jazz (Harry Connick, Jr.), classical (Bach), and current country (Toby Keith).
I adore movies. My "default DVDs" include The Bridges Over Madison County, For Love of the Game, Armageddon, Out of Africa, Twister, Children of a Lesser God, The Longest Day, The Matrix, I Dreamed of Africa, Dances with Wolves, The Fifth Element, Blade, LadyHawke, The Quiet Man, Meet Joe Black, and The Secretary
I don't watch much tv anymore. We usually tape CSI, NCIS, The Unit, and The Amazing Race during the week and watch them on Sat/Sun afternoons. We've also discovered the joy of ad-free tv (aka DVD season collections).
I love all kinds of things: scrap crafts, sewing (plus-size as a child, I learned early to make most anything), embroidery (not just x-stitch, but "fancy work" too), sketching/water colors, knitting (new to this!), crochet (even newer at this!!), writing (no talent, just desire), and learning new things
I'm pretty boring on the surface, but underneath, watch out! I have a blog where ALL those tales are told. So, don't be afraid to "test the edge" of your usual envelopes. I'm pretty cool about most topics/imagery/artforms. ;) My Guilty pleasure? office/school supplies!! I adore stationery.
I am a pagan, ordained, eclectic, and active water witch, locally and with several area circles of pagan-folk. I'm a flamekeeper for Brighid and I teach basic spirituality a couple of times a year for community groups who ask me to. I've been "outta the broomcloset" since I was 40 (yike! that long??) so sometimes I'm lucky and get invited to present topics at Pride events. (old ladies rule, y'know) I have a sacred circle 25ft across in my backyard that's always a favorite place to hang-out.
Ratings! Lots of people get my stuff; only the BEST SORTS remember to rate them. PLEASE rate it. I need the closure. :)
As I said above, if I owe you a rating, send me a PM. Sometimes I just forget because I'm ooh'ing and aah'ing so much.
Once there was a list here of swaps I never received. Now it's just too long and too hard to think about. :(
