My name is Denise
I haven't been swapping for a while now. My mother had a host of medical issues that I had to deal with, then I had to put her in assisted living. It has been a struggle.
After that, I switched jobs. I am much happier in my new position. I no longer have the most boring job ever. I am loving the new challenge and experience.
Now that I have the time, I am really looking forward to swapping again.
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.
