About Me

I'm a physics student with plenty of unconnected hobbies. At the moment I'm obsessed with 1930's, especially music, commedies and style of living altogether. Don't ask me how, but I am trying to combine it with minimalist living :) I like participating in cipher-games, enjoy nature and outdoor activities (except for things where snow in hugely involved), yoga-like excercising and I get very good rest by craftwork of many kind: drawing, sewing (that is a new hobby of mine, since I got my mother's old sewing machine), creating things from paper, baking sweets, doing new hairstyles for my friends... I am always eager to try something new.

Favorite Music

My favourite music has always been "clasical" rock like Beatles, John Lennon, Led Zeppelin etc., but I love plenty of styles. Well... Joan Baez, BSP, Rolling Stones, Jethro Tull... Recently I have discovered jazz and blues and many good musicians (Billie Holliday, Melody Makers, Benny Goodman...)

I play keyboard since childhood, guitar (like play that tramp stuff by fire), started with harmonic, flute and darbuka.

For two years I've danced belly dances, used to do Israeli dances and salsa. And with jazz, here comes the swing to dance.

Favorite Movies

As for movies, I always liked commedies, but not those American crazy ones. I like black-and-white stuff from my country, British humor... My favourite movies are Rosencrantz and Guilderstern Are Dead, Chocolate, Hard Day's Night, movies by Miyazaki and many others. I love to laugh.

Choosing from series... Doctor Who (my Doctor is the fourth one - Tom Baker), Torchwood (I fell in love with Jack :)) , Mash, Hercule Poirot, Četnické humoresky, Addams Family, X-Files... I enjoy being fan of these series, so anything so themed may be nice :)

Favorite Books

Now something about my favourite books. I've always been a great reader, so there are many. I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter (but never saw movies - and not going to), Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Jane Austen's books, Asterix, Wodehouse's books, Saturnin, When the Rains Came, Alice in Wonderland...

Generally yes to humorous books, adventures and classics, no to romantic or books about dying.

I like

  • chocolate (preferably dark - 60%)

  • tea (especially from China and India)

  • robots, droids (R2D2 or C3PO from Star Wars, K-9 from Doctor Who)

  • wolves, werewolves

  • useful things in miniature size

  • notepads, because I'm writing maniac :) A5 is my size ;) But I use practically anything at school.

  • I prefer green or natural colors; black and silver are ok too

  • above-knee socks, size EU 38/UK 5.

  • stationery with green ink, something natural decorated...

  • hair-stuff (I have reeeally long hair, so I'm always happy to get something new to do them)

  • 20'S, 30's or 40's retro or vintage

  • anything oriental or exotic

  • hats, berets

  • minerals

  • pantomime

  • earrings (I have pierced ears) and jewellery (homemade as well)

  • costumes (mostly just specific detail of some character than all the appearance; like John Lennon's glases)

  • recipes from every place in the Universe. I would prefer them on A6 format (portrait-oriented) card, so I can easily add them to my cook-book. That means 14,8x10,5 cm maximum; it can be smaller, but not bigger.

  • music sheets. Show me what music you like to play! :)

I don't like

  • anything too cute or romantic, kawai

  • angel-decorations

  • white chocolate

  • coffee

  • alcohol or anything so flavoured

  • smoke

  • peppermint, eucalyptus... well anything minty. Smell or taste, doesn't matter.

  • gold, shiny and sparkling colors - but I like silver

  • plastic materials

Languages

And to contact me: I speak Czech (therefore understand similar languages), English, German (if German is your mother-language, I would appreciate you writing me in German so I could learn) and I started with French. Working on more.

Last thing: I you think you should have received a package from me and you didn't, please contact me so we can work it out. Also I really appreciate ratings. I send most of swaps overseas, so there is quite lots of chances for mail to get lost - by a rating I can see that I don't have to worry anymore. Thanks!

Tea

I love tea. Especially white and green tea from India and China. I prefer unflavoured loose tea, but I'm always happy to try some new flavours, when I get a teabag to test, so basically anything is OK.

Herbal and fruit teas are quite common in our country, so I am used to drink them as water, unless it is something really special. I like camomile tea. Just no minty stuff, no peppermint at all and also no liquorice, that makes me sick. And that goes for flavours too. I love orange-flavoured tea :) And vanilla, mmm. And oranges with vanilla...!

I got some seasonal tea mixtures from America (Christmas tea, autumn tea...), it was sweet and good (Bigelow brand), I would love to try some more :)

Comment: Those are fantastic! I'm such a Night Vale geek.....Last month, my husband and I went to Jacksonville, Fl (about 2 hours north of where we live) to see a live presentation of Night Vale. It was GREAT! Thanks also for hosting the swap. It was a lot of fun. I did miss the line that it was two ATCs to be sent, but got that resolved with my swap partner. What a dope I am. Anyhow, thanks again. This was a blast!
