About Me

Hi there,

I'm a supermarket chef. Basically, I'm a cooking show without cameras. I get paid to play with and talk about food. It's a pretty sweet gig.

I love to run, swim, ski, knit, cook, read, swim, swim, travel, swim, and swim. I love anything to do with the ocean.

I lived in Japan from 1997 to 2005. I moved back to Canada for about 9 months in that period, but I just couldn't stay away from Asia. I've traveled extensively throughout Southeast Asia and the Middle East, and I'd go back in a heartbeat.

I don't smoke and I don't have any pets, so the packages I send out are smoke and fuzz-free.

I am pretty easy to please. I love anything made by you for me. As for my Etsy favourites, many of them are sold the second I click 'favourite', but they are often relisted by the seller.

Smart Fokker

Favorite Music

Split Enz/Crowded House/Neil Finn, Johnny Cash, REM, Billy Bragg, Otis Redding, Steve Earle, Manic Street Preachers

Favorite Movies

Mallrats, Waiting for Guffman, The Princess Bride, Chinatown, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Roger and Me

Favorite Television

Cracker, Simpsons, King of the Hill, The Office, Arrested Development, Law and Order (I have a crush on Lupo, hahaha), CSI marathons (I'm useless when they're on).

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, learning to sew and quilt

How to make me happy

If you send me any of the following, I'll be a happy lady:

plain dark chocolate, Reese's Peanut Butter cups, (but not Reese's Pieces), anything vanilla, natural fibre (except for lovely alpaca, it makes me itch and gives me splotchy skin... sadness) yarn (in any colour), flavoured coffee (except Irish Creme or anything with coconut), post cards (especially Anne Taintor, or anything Anne Taintor), kitsch, retro anything, anything with stars (I love stars!!!), super-tacky Elvis souvenirs - especially of older, fatter, greasier Elvis (if it makes you want to scream and run away in terror, then you're close to what I'm looking for), books from my Amazon wishlist (used is all right!), anything Johnny Cash, bamboo knitting needles, and recipes.

Not really interested in

raisins (they make my tongue go numb), alpaca (again, sadness!!) coconut, fruit-flavoured chocolate, nuts in chocolate (I'm not allergic; I prefer nuts in savoury dishes), candy (except gummy bears and Starburst fruit chews), overtly religious material trying to convert me or save my heathen soul (I'm happy you've found enlightenment or have been saved, but please respect my beliefs or non-beliefs - my soul is just fine), overly cute stuff, etc... if you have any questions, just ask me.

tanjch rated for TPP: let's play a game on Oct 21, 2013
Comment: No!!!!!! The postcard arrived today and i didn't know if i should be more surprised or shocked what the post did to it! Honestly, i don't really know what they did... spilled it with something (smells like gas?! though it looks like it "ate" all the color on both sides of that half of the PC ) all over the side where you wrote (so i can basicly read "i hope i'm close, signed...etc"). I'm Sorry i can't tell you wether you were right or wrong though :/ but THANK YOU eventhough, as the the postcard is beautiful and you wrote a lot :D (it's such a shame i couldn't read it though - i tried really hard to though)
Response: Oh my gosh! I am so sad to hear that. I said you were tall and fabulous and everybody was jealous of your style. I said you had a smile that lights up a room, hair full of stars, and just general awesome. I'm so sad it got eaten (and lost from the length of time it took) in the post. It must have lost the other postcard. Next time we're paired, I'll put the postcard in an envelope when I send it to you. Thanks for rating! Thank you for rating so well regardless!
Comment: The PC is great. I have never been to Cape Breton but have always wanted to. It sounds like a great vacation place.
Response: It's such a lovely island! You really should come and visit. We're friendly! I'm glad you liked the card. Have a fabulous day! Thanks for rating so quickly!

Comment: I'm not kidding . . . this is the coolest PC I've ever seen! Thank you for going way above and beyond to make sure your end of this swap was done correctly. It's perfect, and I can't imagine being more pleased with a postcard. THANKS!

Response: You're welcome! I' was fully expecting to win the trip... next time!
chrissybaby rated for TPP: Postcard Scavenger Hunt on May 30, 2013
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful cards you sent me - I like both and really appreciate you sent me two cards :) Both go into my collections!
Response: Yay! I couldn't resist! I saw the lighthouse postcard, and it didn't really fit into the scavenger hunt. I love Peggy's Cove, and I wanted to share some of it with you!

Welcome to the Synesthesia Guild of Swap-bot!!

PinkLotus on Oct 22, 2013:

my pleasure :) xoxoxoxoxo Just in case you were wondering.. I thought the postcard was extra lesbiny - I know you like that :D

HoneyBadger on Sep 30, 2013:

Lol! What color would you like your headscarf to be? Mine is going to be red to match the Corvette we're driving. The really big groovy convertibles are such monstrous gas guzzlers. I think a '66 Corvette may be a 6-cylinder and much better on gas. More money for sushi, red vines and espressos! Road Trip!!

HoneyBadger on Sep 30, 2013:

He is a wonderful storyteller. He will always be one of my favorites.
For years I have had a picture in my head of a drawing, sort of like a map. It has a highway with a sign reading "Hillbilly Highway", with lots of roads going from it, named things like "Copperhead Road" and "Telephone Road" and "Nowhere Road"... all leading to GUITAR TOWN! Guitar town is like the Cadillac Ranch, only it's gigantic Stratacasters and Les Pauls stuck in the ground instead of cars! There's a giant 1950s Las Vegas-style sign with "Guitar Town" in old fashioned bulb neons that arches over the whole town. It's all out in the desert with mountains in the background. Yeah, I'm nuts. Hehe.. when I draw it I should put you and I in a big convertible with the top down, a la Thelma & Louise. Help.

HoneyBadger on Sep 30, 2013:

So I'm just sitting here at my craft table making stuff and watching Law and Order: SVU, and who do you think I see?? Steve Earle playing a teacher in Riker's juvenile facility! I really had to do a double take!

You never did tell me how that concert was 100 years ago...
