About Me

I am Wiccan and love to collect Tarot decks. I enjoy fairy art as long as it isn't too cutesy (think Brain Froud). I currently work as a vet tech at the city animal shelter; I really enjoy what I do so anything animal related would be fun for me. I like to ride my bike around the city and go exploring. I also enjoy bird/bat watching with my husband. I live with my husband, one chinchilla, and three cats. I don't like political items; I feel like that's a personal thing and should be left as such. Other than that, I am very easy to please. Especially if it involves cats, the creepier ( think Halloween) the better.

Favorite Music

I like almost everything, from bagpipes (yay Tartanic!) to classical to indie pop: Freelance Whales, Imogen Heap, Fascinoma. I also confess a liking for goth music: Siouxsie and the Banshees, Sisters of Mercy, Dead Can Dance, Concrete Blonde, and Echo and the Bunnymen. Recently in love with Lana del Rey, She Wants Revenge, and The Editors. Guess you can tell I used to be goth; okay, I might still be, just a little;)

Favorite Books

I could go on and on here: Peter S. Beagle, Terry Pratchett, A. Lee Martinez, John Steinbeck, Neil Gaiman, Morgan Llewellyn, Edgar Allan Poe, H.G. Wells, Lovecraft... I tend to lean towards fantasy and horror. One day, I will have a library to live in. Until then, I just have one (small) in my house.

Favorite Movies

I am really big on fantasy here: The Last Unicorn, Legend, Willow, Labyrinth, The Lord of the Rings, etc. I also enjoy a good scary flick (not gory), ones that really get in your head and stick there. Such as The Others, Rec, Mama. The gory ones aren't scary to me, just either campy (which can be good, thank you Evil Dead) or gross. If you haven't watched Requiem for a Dream, don't! Why would you do that to yourself?

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, Firefly, American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Supernatural. Anything that can be accessed through Netflix since I don't usually have time each week to watch tv. I love watching it while crafting or playing with my 'chilla; she likes the Doctor Who credits. Update: Hulu now has the Doctor (squee!) I can finally catch up and not miss the 50th Anniversary! (happy dance, happy dance)

Favorite Crafts

I have always enjoyed cross-stitch and sewing by hand. I've started getting into origami which the cats have been thrilled about, since everything is a cat toy. My bike is always a work in progress as I add things to it and take away others. I am also trying to learn calligraphy so I can explain my strange obsession with pens of all kinds. I also love stamping; I've been eyeing heat embossing recently. I also like making little books and journals.

Collections

-Pens (still not sure why I like those) -Tarot cards I would like: Stick Figure Tarot -Bookmarks -Fairy art -Buttons -Wine bottles (interesting labels are always welcome) -Stickers -Anything vintage -Naked unusual postcards (tee hee, nekkid) -Books I'm starting to sound like a deranged magpie so I think I'll stop there

Odd Interests

I've always loved garb of all kind, from medieval to 50's housewife. Recently I have gotten into steampunk, I think because it combines shiny bits with lots of corsetry and skirts in dark colors. I also love learning new things, especially if it involves science or medicine. My goal in life is to eventually become a mad scientist. I already have the lab coat and goggles, now I just need the lab. I also enjoy learning about people's day to day lives. Mine has always been a bit...odd, so someone who lives a so called average life is fascinating to me.

Comment: Hi Courteney - Thank you for the beautiful bookmark - I love it. The design/colours are beautiful. Glad to hear your drought has ended (as you said for now). We are fortunate in our area that we have recently had quite a bit of rain which has helped, but other areas of the state or in a very bad way. I agree about curling up with a great book and a cat/3 and rain outside - bliss. All the best and happy swapping Jane x jep1068

Comment: Haha, living in the Bible belt and I too had to go out & get a Pagan tattoo....some of us never learn (shame on us for wanting to express out beliefs) ; )
Response: After seeing my tattoo, a coworker confessed to me that he, too, was pagan. He then went and got his own :) Thanks for the heart!

Glad you like the magnet. I love my local Wild Birds Unlimited store. Just bought a 20-pound bag of Choice Plus feed on Friday. They were open and had a huge sale going on. The store had a steady stream of customers on the holiday!

Thanks for sending my PC back from the NYUP group tag! We've had cold, snow and 60 degrees this winter, so sounds kind of like your winters :)
