member of Swap-Bot since March 3, 2007!
Hello and Welcome to my profile! If you are here just to have a look around, enjoy! My profile is an almost constant state of change! profile updated 5/19/2018
My name is Mikki!
I am a 41 yr old married mom of 3 kids and married for 17yrs. I am a S@HM. Currently living in Montgomery, Alabama but I am originally from a small town in Louisiana. I moved here in 1992 with my parents and 3 siblings.
As a person, I am very eclectic. I like a lot of shit. I cuss a lot. I like to wear tshirts and jeans. I'm a HUGE geek. I can be very sarcastic and snarky. I can be your best friend or your worst enemy. I have many different obsessions. I love coffee and drink it black. I also love tea. My favorites are Earl Grey and Tazo Zen. I recently purchased Vulcan Spice from Adagio Tea and it's great. I love sushi and could eat it everyday. I have a few health issues (hypothyroidism, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, anxiety, insomnia, depression, high blood pressure and cholesterol) but I don't let it get in my way. I used to be a heavy weight lifter (I could once squat and deadlift close to 200 lbs). But I also suffer from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, degenerating disc and bone spurs in my spine, so I had to stop. I still do some weight lifting though and I'm very slowly going to work back into heavier lifting. Edited to add that I am once again doing some heavy lifting!! My current deadlift is 175 lbs and I hit a PR of 185 on the squat rack!!!
I've been collecting stamps and postcards since I'm 8 or 9. My biggest philatelic accomplishment is filling the small stamp book I got from a school book order (Troll I think) in the 3rd grade. Took me over 20 yrs to complete it. I last counted my postcards about 3 yrs ago and at the time, I had a little over 3000. The count is probably closer to 4000 now.
I love swapping here. I started on Yahoo groups around 2002, then moved to Live Journal, which is where i found out about Swap-Bot. I mainly swap postcards now, but I will occasionally do other swaps. I believe in rating as required and will do it. After being on this site for 11 yrs, I'm trying to learn to be less worried about what other swappers do and say in the forums and more concerned with my swaps. But sometimes it's not that easy to do. Sometimes I let my current mood get the best of me and let the snark out. I know there are some people here who don't like me, but meh...I'm not here for you nor can I please everyone.
I am a devotee of Hekate for close to 15 yrs now. I am a Witch. I walk with the Goddess and I honor Her on a daily basis. I walk a fine line between the dark and the light. I've been a Pagan for 30+, practicing for well over 20. I consider myself Eclectic. I will not and do not hesitate to do what some consider darker magic.
Random, specific things that I love: my husband and kids, Star Trek, horror movies, Vincent Price, black cats, bats, thunderstorms, Star Trek, the smell of patchouli, Star Trek candles and incense, fabric, the color black, the smell of old books, Ancient Egypt, old cemeteries....
My geek girl randomness:
* Star Trek
* Doctor Who
* Sherlock BBC
* The Golden Girls
* The Avengers
* Star Wars
* Mars Attacks
* The Walking Dead
* Leonard Nimoy
* Brent Spiner
* Sir Patrick Stewart
* Benedict Cumberbatch
* David Tennant
More about my favorite fandom, Star Trek. For those who don't know me, I am a HUGE Trekkie. So basically anything Star Trek sent to me is a HUGE plus. I was lucky enough to meet Brent Spiner and LaVar Burton in 2016. While I have no favorite episodes, I do have favorite characters. And here is a list:
TOS: Bones and Spock
TNG: Picard, Data and Q
VOY: Capt Janeway and The Doctor
DS9: Quark and Odo
ENT: T'Pol and Tucker
DIS: Burnham and Staments
I am always looking to do private swaps for Star Trek stuff.
PLEASE do not send any extras in swaps. I appreciate the thought. I do not have the space for storing extra bits and bobs which will most likely be tossed out. Please save your money on me and send them to someone who may use them. I also, I rate on the swap itself, not on extras sent. I always have and I always will.
Also, if I have not rated you for a swap, please do not hesitate to message me about it. I usually put my swaps (which are mainly postcards for now) stacked on the counter near my laptop. Sometimes, my hubby will move them without letting me know, so I will forget to rate them. I usually try to rate them right away, but I can forget.
Disclaimer: This is not a shopping list. If you have me as a partner in a swap, I am not at all expecting you to send me any of these things. (If you choose to it will obviously be much appreciated.) This is more of a guide of things I like and would like to have!!
aside from things on my dislike list at the bottom of my profile, there are few things I would prefer not to receive.
