My favorite music would be anything that gets me up and dancing. It can be from any genre as long as it has a great rhythm, great beat, great groove, etc. A few of my favorites to dance to are: George Clinton - Atomic Dog, Enur - Calabria 2007, Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music White Boy, LL Cool J - Headsprung, Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines, & Sage the Gemini/IamSu - Gas Pedal.
I was "late bloomer" in my discovery of radio. Most of my friends like mid 80's music, but I got hooked on early 90's Rap; Run D.M.C., Beastie Boys, Mc Hammer, Ice Cube.
On the other spectrum, the music that relaxes me is 40's Big Band; Glenn Miller, Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald,
I live in Illinois, in a far suburb of Chicagoland with my husband and our two dogs. We have over an acre of property with a lot of trees. I've tried my hand at flower and vegetable gardening in small areas where there is a bit of sun. Every year is a learning experience. My job is at a small electrical contractor's office as the office manager. I do almost everything that's not field work. But my favorite is working with Auto CAD laying out the systems we install on drawings/blueprints.
Right now I'm hooked on watching Austenland. It's one of the romantic comedies I can watch over and over again. I also like action adventure movies and science fiction. My watch over and over again list also includes: Practical Magic, Big Hero 6, Guardians of the Galaxy, Bring it On, Hackers, The Other Woman, Zombieland, Warm Bodies, Iron Man, Avengers.
My favorite craft is making greeting cards with rubber stamps. I've always liked to draw and color with colored pencils, so some of my recent cards have included that. Lately I've been also making cards with just paper cuts.
butterflies, crickets, spiders, actually all types of bugs,
retro/vintage cars, trains and planes
Alice in Wonderland,
Wizard of Oz,
Supernatural creatures and traditional movie monsters,
gothic and steampunk styles,
colors in dusty vintage and gemstone tones, especially purples, blues, greens
I collect money, especially coins. I also like tokens.
I used to collect comic books and stamps. I don't any more but I still enjoy them.
cutesy toy like animals; the ones that have patches and stitching,
cutesy Halloween designs; like a teddy bear with a cape, that's not Halloween enough to me, (cute monsters are ok)
very girly things,
main stream religious items.
I like tea, especially green. I used to drink black tea a lot but after becoming lactose intolerant it now upsets my stomach, so I don't drink it too often. Flavors of green tea I know I like are lemon, mixed berry, honey, and mint.
I don't like licorice, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple and watermelon flavors. Also I don't like anything with artificial sweeteners.
I love chocolate but not being able to have dairy has limited me to dark chocolate. There are also some chocolates made with chocolate liquor instead of dairy.
Postcards; especially birthday and holiday
Coins; old US or any foreign coins even metal tokens
Rubber stamps; store bought or handmade
Playing cards in interesting designs, new or used but in complete sets
Vintage and/or vintage style paper goods
Anything you think I would like will be appreciated.
