Take the Blue Circle Test to learn more about the risk of getting Diabetes!
Please don't send any sweets/food! As much as I love them, I am diabetic and have to watch my blood sugar! Thank you! :-)
Heya, my name is Moni. Well actually Monika, but since most of the people wrote Monica and all of my friends and family call me Moni anyway, I decided to change it in my address-box too. :-)
I work in a library and enjoy it, although I don't read as much as I used to read. Being together (since February 14th 2006) with the love of my life @LillyLupin formerly DarthD and I'm really happy! :-) We share the same address of course, but it's all sorted out with Rachel Johnson!
We don't have any pets (would love to live with a dog someday!), but our balcony totally belongs to the birds! :D We feed them all year round: blue and great tits, eurasian jays and magpies are visiting the whole day. We love to watch them, when we're sitting in our living-room, or working in the kittchen. :-)
Me in a nutshell: Introvert philanthrop with misanthropic tendencies.
“On some days I think it would be better if there were no religions. All religions and all scriptures conceal the potential for violence. That is why we need secular ethics beyond all religions. It is more important for schools to have classes on ethics than religion. Why? Because it’s more important for humanity’s survival to be aware of our commonalities than to constantly emphasize what divides us.”
― Dalai Lama XIV, An Appeal by the Dalai Lama to the World: Ethics Are More Important Than Religion
♫ And now for something completely different. ♫
♫ Your highness, when I said that you are like a stream of bat's piss, I only mean that you shine out like a shaft of gold when all around it is dark. ♫
packages and re-swapping:
I recycle envies. Means, if they are not torn I use them again to protect the environment. You can do this too when you send to me. :-)
I also don't wrap the swaps I send, in nice papers. They may look nice, but I think, this is not necessary. Another way to protect the environment. So you don't have to do that either in the swaps you send me! That doesn't mean, that I don't wrap them up carefully if necessary!
If you don't like/or can't use something I've sent, you can reswap/regift it. I too will give things away, that I can't use or don't need. With that said, I will never claim that I created something, that I didn't!!! When I pass handmade things to someone else, that are not mine, I will say so and I will never send them as a replacement of my part of the swap, but as an extra!
♫ The BBC would like to apologize for the next announcement.♫
I'll angel all of my swaps I host myself.
♫ One day, lad, all this will be yours. What, the curtains? ♫
War, weapons of all kinds, cats, circus, clowns, Diddl, dottees, food-items, Horror/splatter, Inchies, sock monkeys, scented items.
Please don't send me any paper bits and bops!!! I have so many papers for crafting, I could open a store! No scrapbooking-supplies too, please!!!
I hate tests on animals!!! So I try to avoid those products!
'Stolen' from my sweetie's @LillyLupin profile:
•I don't like scary stuff, so no zombies, evil clowns (or clowns in general actually), horror, splatter or anything else that gives me nightmares
•I don't like brutality. Neither in real life nor in fiction. My mind cannot comprehend what people do to each other (or animals) for absurd or no reason! And I find nothing entertaining about it to watch it

♫ I'm afraid I'm not personally qualified to confuse cats, but I can recommend an extremely good service. ♫
I believe some people like them sent naked and some, like me and many others, unwritten in an envie. I will respect and send both ways. I always take a look at my partner's profile or ask and I don't judge anyone about the way she/he likes it. :-)
I'm not into handmade-pcs!
I prefer to get my postcards unwritten in an envie (unless the swap-description says otherwise). Thank you! :-)
I'm not very fond of oversized postcards!
I would love to get a quokka-pc for my collection. =D
I would love to get any US-state bird-postcard! Thank you for helping! :-)
