My Top Songs of 2016!

About Me

Hey! I'm Mary Rose. I'm 27 and live in a cool old (not haunted, as far as I can tell!) house (built in 1839!) in Pennsylvania with my husband, our roommates, and our pets. :)

I work as a receptionist in an animal hospital! I love it a lot.

I have a bunch of neat pets! There's a weird, shy beagle named Earl, a sweet old cat named Basil, a goofy guinea pig named Chichi, a grumpy old rat named Possum,a geriatric gerbil named LaBeouf, and a cool little betta fish with a really long name.

Favorite Stuff

I'm happy with anything you send me, as long as there's some love put into it!

General likes are: Dogs, feminism, McElroy stuff, tattoos, spooky stuff, yoga, trying to eat healthier, essential oils, libraries, walking around town, trying new food (I really love to eat!), mindfulness/EFT, libraries, & DIY.

I'm always happy to receive tea, any kind is good, but earthy greens are my favorite!

I'm kinda witchy, I like reading/learning Tarot, crystals, and lovingly gazing at the moon!

Favorite Books

I'm an avid reader!

I love magical realism, stories about troubled people doing troubled things, and YA

Some of my favorites: The Raven Cycle (really anything by Maggie Stiefvater!), Charlie Higson's The Enemy Series, Lila Bowen's The Shadow series, & True Grit.

I love comics too! Especially: Saga, The Walking Dead, Paper Girls, Harrow County, Rat Queens, Lumberjanes, & Animosity.

Favorite Television

My very favorites are: The Office and The Walking Dead.

Other things I like a lot are: Hannibal, The Handmaid's Tale, Terrace House, Rectify, Chewing Gum, The Path, OITNB, Law and Order: SVU, & Broad City.

I watch a lot of Youtube too! Monster Factory and makeup tutorials!

Favorite Movies

Hooray for movies, the scarier the better!

I like: the Paranormal Activity series, No Country For Old Men, Guardians of The Galaxy, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Thing (1982), True Grit (2010), & It Follows.

Favorite Crafts

Cross stitching is my current favorite! I like hand lettering, weaving, drawing, and zines.

I also like knitting, crocheting, and embroidery, but can really only do the basics!

Favorite Music

Cheesy answer, but I'll listen to any kind of music. I linked my top songs of 2016 above, if that helps. :)

I listen to podcasts a TON.

I love: The Adventure Zone, Book Club Shmook Club, MBMBAM, Who? Weekly, Last Podcast on the Left, Another Round, Page 7, Sex and Other Human Activities, SYSK, Stuff Mom Never Told You, See Something Say Something, Sawbones, Lore, Sleep With Me, & Internet Explorer.

Favorite Games

I play a lot of board games with my roommates and friends! We also have a fun D&D campaign going!

I play video games too, right now I'm mostly playing Overwatch, Skyrim, and hanging out with my ghoul boyfriend Hancock in Fallout 4.

Comment: Great zines! I <3 Basil! Give him a hug from one of his fans, if you will. Also, are you caught up on WtNV?!? I can't wait for the 15th!
Response: Aw, thank you so much! I'm glad you like it, I will definitely give Basil a hug! And I'm really, really far behind on it! I've been listening to a lot of Stuff You Should Know, and that's distracting me! I do need to catch up on my drives to work!

Comment: Thank you for the little extras you included with your package, the book page sounded really interesting that I've started to wonder if I should go on to find it.
Response: Ahh, you should! It's one of my favorites! I can't remember if I wrote it in the letter, but I just got a big True Grit tattoo! :)

I am not sure about the 'ghost cat' in the book but I have one in my house. Kitten died a little over 2 years ago and visits me in my room (where he died) as long as other cats aren't with me (because he didn't really like sharing me). Some nights he lays against my back and purrs
