About Me

I participated in InCoWriMo in 2019 but only managed to send out a dozen letters. I'm hoping that I can do better in 2020; if you would like to receive one from me during the 2020 event, PM me with your address!

I always appreciate tuck-ins on swaps, but if you’re my partner don't feel it's necessary or expected to send any.

A few things about me

  • 46yo, female, married w/ 4 kids (2 grownups, 2 teens)
  • atheist homeschooler--no denim jumpers here!
  • I cook several hours a day--all gluten-free and vegan
  • paper addict, esp unusual writing paper
  • washi paper addict as well
  • constantly reading, don’t leave home without my kindle or a book
  • unrepentant potty mouth
  • I love coffee!
  • allergic to nature IRL but gravitate toward colors found in nature, especially autumnal colors
  • after 5pm you WILL find me drinking white wine every day
  • NPR is my jam
  • Most of the day I listen to podcasts while working, driving, etc.--I'm always looking for recommendations, so feel free to suggest. There are about 70 podcasts on rotation in my ears.
  • I like to write and receive long, newsy letters. Usually I write longhand because I'm at a cafe or coffee shop, but occasionally I type (well, on the computer) because it is soooo much faster and my fingers can follow my brain easier that way.

LIKES:

  • books! Fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, thrillers, classics, poetry...I will read pretty much anything except fantasy/sci-fi. I like there to be at least some semblance of realism
  • pen-pal letters
  • sarcasm
  • white wine
  • coffee
  • Indigo Girls
  • washi tape
  • colors: olive/jade green is favorite, followed by purple, silver, mustard, burnt umber, brown, gray, teal, turquoise
  • kilts
  • podcasts, especially humorous or political
  • vintage/retro
  • writing/receiving letters
  • art nouveau
  • art deco
  • mandalas
  • daisies, sunflowers, bonsai
  • botanical

DISLIKES:

  • hair
  • rodents
  • housework
  • stereotypical "girly" stuff
  • animal prints
  • camel toe
  • fantasy/sci-fi
  • traditional holiday stuff; it just seems so artificial, especially xmas
  • GLITTER IS THE WORST. CONFETTI IS HER BITCH STEP-SISTER
  • anything containing lavender (I'm allergic). Love the color, not the plant
  • sweets/candy
  • ribbon/fabric
  • religious or faith-based ANYTHING
  • “cute” or kawaii
  • kiddie/juvenile stuff

WOULD LIKE TO SWAP (I.E., MSG ME AND I WILL RESPOND):

  • shared journals
  • letter-writing paper/sets
  • decorated/homemade envelopes
  • ATC
  • flip/envelope books/tags, etc.
  • unusual images
  • typography
  • old book pages, any language
  • images of: maps, clocks, keys/locks, dragonflies/butterflies, celestial, artistic nudes, goddesses, collage elements, foreign language text
  • tags
  • vintage writing

Postcards:

  • out-of-the-ordinary
  • artsy
  • funny
  • eccentric
  • vintage
  • non-touristy

Comment: Wow, you made a lot of progress! That's great. We just started watching the Netflix series, The Stranger, which I think is based on the book? I haven't read any of his yet. Thanks for sharing. :)

Comment: You are one of the first who reads ebooks more than paper books that I've heard from in a long time. Mostly I just hear how 'wrong' it feels and so on. I'm still on the fence - I love paper books, but like you said, the ebooks are so handy - borrowing an ebook, downloading and starting to read all without leaving the couch is very handy! I don't carry my kindle with me, but I use the kindle app on my phone, so I do have those with me when I leave the house. And I read a few pages of a book while in line or waiting all the time. Thanks for sharing. :)

Comment: Thank you for your letter, I will absolutely be writing back, whether it ends up as a swap or just bonus happy mail for your mail box. Your comment about the current resident of the White House made me laugh out loud, my husband thought I found something online that was freaking hilarious but nope it was just your honest to goodness opinion of Mr. Trump.
Response: Oh, I guarantee you that I will never not say out loud what is happening in this country. I am ASHAMED AND EMBARRASSED for us. That fuckwit needs to contract the coronavirus and just GO. He was democrat until it wasn’t profitable for him. He is on record being FOR Hillary Clinton! Dingleberry!

Comment: What a fun swap. I've tried a cinnamon herbal tea. It was just O.K. But cinnamon black tea sounds wonderful. I love anything cinnamon. Questions: My favorite Anne Rice book is Cry To Heaven. I read it quite a few years ago. I'm now into the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Chokin dishes are from Japan. Chokin is the ancient art of metal engravings with gold and silver gilt. Originally used to decorate the armor of Samurai warriors. Beautiful but always not the easiest to find. Thanks again.
Response: OMG. Outlander is my favorite series; I've read every book at least 5 times, met her in person, went to see her speak, can't WAIT for book 9 to be released, hopefully later this year! I need to look up those dishes now. Thanks for responding!
