I have been away from Swapbot for over a year now. Crazy times at the moment, the world needs more happy mail.
I have moved to a new house, but at the moment I am having my mail sent to the work PO address as the postal service is running behind due to the lockdown and the lack of international flights bringing and taking mail. I would love to start swapping right away, but I honestly dont know how long the mail will take to get to overseas.
Now onto the serious stuff:
Hello my name is Cindy and I am addicted to postcards.
I am in my 40s. I moved to New Zealand 13 years ago from South Africa with my now hubby Dominick, we married on 20st April 2011. My husband has Multiple Sclerosis, which he manages very well (fingers crossed). We have no children by choice. We have a male cat called Kwali and as from 2 Dec 2016 a little black female cat I have named Poppy. I don't smoke or drink alcohol (just don't have a taste for either). I try to eat healthy, eg: gluten free, sugar free, preservativefree. But when the body needs chocolate who can say no.
I also love science fiction and fantasy books and movies. And I enjoy getting into good Victorian era murder mysteries. As well as Agatha Christie and that era. good old fashioned stuff.
Spring is my favourite time of the year, just between the cold of winter and the heat of summer, where all the pretty flowers start to bloom and baby animals are being born.
I love tea, black being my favourite, Especially Earl Grey. I dont drink Camomile, for some reason it gives me stomach cramps when I drink it. I LOVE cinnemon!
My favourite movies / tv are: Equilibrium, Avatar, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Appleseed, Witchblade (the anime version), Ghost in the Shell, The Hobbit, Kungfu Panda, Pirates of the Carribean series, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Matrix Trilogy, all the Riddick's, Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries, Midsommer Murders, Ancient Aliens, Downton Abbey, Poirot, Miss Marple, Vera..... just to name a few.
Im a bit of a Harry Potter fan, I have all the books and one day hope to have extended versions of the movies on DVD and to also go visit Harry Potter world (either UK or US I don't mind).
My favourite colours are: Dark blues, dark purples, dark pinks, dark greens, reds and black.
I would love to do private PC swaps and am always looking for postcard pals.
I like to host swaps, should you not receive your swap from your partner even after you may have managed to get hold of them for a resend, I will happily Angel just let me know.
I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.
I love good old fashioned murder mysteries and period dramas.
Bumblebees and bees and ladybugs. Im always rescuing bumblebees and bees in the garden with sugar water.
Belly dancing, I haven't done it for years, but I would still love to someday.
Dita Von Teese or any Burlesque for that matter.
Deftones is my most favourite favourite band.
I love kung fu movies, I have seen so many that I love that it would take forever to list them.
I dont like receiving PCs that are a cut out from a cereal box or some other random thing. I only send out store bought PCs so I kind of expect to receive store bought or very nicely hand made/art PCs. I will give a 3 if I get a PC cut out from some random box you got out of your kitchen cupboard.
I do not mind handmade, but only if the swap allows them.
I am not religeous, so please don't sent me religeous or spiritual stuff.
I prefer my postcards sent stamped and naked, or naked and stamped (that is sent not in an envelope). I have this thing that a postcard is not complete unless it has been written on.
I have decided to collect a postcard of each an every animal in the world. A momentous task you say! Yes it is! Challenge accepted :)
I am looking for the following (I will update this list regularly), I have a folder with all my animail postcards in the "My collections" link at the top of the page here, just in case you want to double check what I have, or just out of curiosity. I will update it regularly.
Here is what I am looking for:
Bats, yes the flying kind.
Indian or Benghal Fox
Tiger or Bull Shark (depending on where you are in the world)
Any dolphin except common dolphin.
Comic book covers
City View PCs with the name on the front.
Space or science fiction
Dramatic weather scenes
Lord of the Rings
Halloween (we don't get any Halloween stuff here in NZ)
Goth or Gothic scenes
Dracula / Vampires (but the scary ones- please NOT Edward, or True Blood, I like the old school vampires)
Vintage comics / movies like Bride of Frankenstein and Vampirella
Froy & Dind (I received one in a tag and I absolutely love it!)
Postcard with cut-outs
