My name is Denise.
My goal in life is to move back to my hometown of Lawrence KS. GO KU!!
I'm one of those annoying, happy, cheery morning people that non-morning people love to hate.
People tell me that I am pretty optimistic. One of those the-glass-is-half-full kind of people. I think the grass is always greener just means I have to mow less!!
I love science fiction (especially Star Trek), astronomy, books and the great outdoors.
I read all the time. That may be a little exaggeration, because I have to sleep sometime. My favorite authors are Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, Richard Kadrey, Connie Willis and Sherri S. Tepper. I read mostly science fiction, and non-fiction history.
I love movies. I could live in a movie theater and be happy. I can never pick just one when someone asks for my favorite.
I love old monster, B-movies from the 50s and 60s, like The Crawling Hand or The Thing with 1000 Eyes.
I like old musicals.
I re-watch 80's movies all the time.
Two movies I never get tired of watching, no matter how many times I have seen them: Dogma and Spaceballs.
And, I will watch anything with Simon Pegg.
My grandmother taught me to do ribbon embroidery. My mom taught me to crochet. I used to do cross stitch, but my eyes have gotten too bad.
My favorite is recording memories in my smash journal. I've been keeping one since my teenage years, I didn't realize there was a name for it until recently. I use all kinds of printed papers, die cuts, stickers, ephemera, photos, and more. I like using watercolors, pastels (chalk and oils) and charcoal. It's like journaling, but with a little art and collecting thrown in.
Favorite Animals: turtles, pink flamingos, penguins, bugs and insects
Favorite Comics: Tank Girl, Fables, X-Men
Favorite Colors: orange, pink and green
Favorite Flowers: Shasta daisies and black eyed susans. Any daisies really.
Other stuff I like:
Sailboats and hot air balloons
Plaids, polka dots and paisley
robots, aliens, spaceships and rockets
Old barns, silos and windmills
Colorful, antique, strange, fanciful or unique doors
mythical creatures ie: dragons, Bigfoot, sphinx, banshees....
I can always use die cuts and ephemera for my journals.
I hand draw mazes.
I hate the cold, so late spring to early fall is my favorite time of the year. I try to spend as much time outdoors as I can.
One day I would really love to go to Russia.
I have a fascination for conspiracy theories. The weirder the better. I just like to figure out how they got started, where they came from and other random information.
I am "totally" in love with Simon Pegg. If I were a teenage girl my walls would be covered with posters.
Do you ever get a really great rating with a wonderful comment, then wonder, wait, what did I send? I'm pretty forgetful. Maybe I should write this stuff down.
