Sati's Human?

28Jan20 - Sati crossed the rainbow bridge today, just a few weeks shy of her 18th birthday. We had been together for nearly 16 years and I love her more than words can say. I will miss her everyday.

I'm really, really interested in acquiring/trading foreign currency.

Sati is my cat. I am her human. That's her in my profile picture. I also have four other kitties, Gravy Boat, Isis, Peta and Elliot. Yes, I am a crazy cat lady and I love my animals more than absolutely anything else on this planet.

After cats, my other favorite animals are flamingos, hedgehogs, frogs, penguins, turtles, llamas, geese, snakes...pretty much anything that isn't a spider is cool with me.

I love foreign things - languages, people, cars and alcohol. If you speak a foreign language and want to tickle my fancy just write something in it. I don't even care if you translate it for me, I just like the way it looks! I also collect foreign currency and am interested in trading.

My favorite color is purple. I'm also fond of green, orange and silver.

I love Jon Bon Jovi.

I am an athiest, child-free by choice, pro-choice, vehemently liberal, pro-LGBTQ rights, an avid reader, into body modification, and a letterboxer.


  • Alice in Wonderland is my passion. I am primarily interested in items with the original illustrations by John Tenniel, but I also like the Disney and Tim Burton versions. The Cheshire Cat is my favorite character.
  • Harry Potter (Hufflepuff)
  • Coca-Cola
  • Jagermeister
  • Foreign currency
  • Canada
  • I letterbox as well. I am Sati's Human on Atlas Quest.


  • dark chocolate
  • caramel
  • chai tea latte
  • coffee
  • Toffifee/Toffifay (depending on which country you're in)
  • Maple Nut Goodies
  • anything from Trader Joe's
  • Yuengling
  • Magic Hat #9


Eurotrip, Dodgeball, The Usual Suspects, The Wedding Singer, Miss Congeniality, Dangerous Beauty, Shrek, The Princess Bride, The Crow


nip/tuck, Dirty Jobs, Scrubs, Family Guy, Intervention, The Office (US version), Weeds, Breaking Bad, The Big Bang Theory, Tosh.0, The Daily Show, Ren and Stimpy, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black


80s! Bon Jovi, Poison, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Guns N Roses, Duran Duran, Firehouse, Nelson, Cinderella, etc.

And of course the music that characterized my angst-ridden teenage years - Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Korn, Tool

The last concert I attended was Bon Jovi (of course).

Since there aren't any strictly 80's or angst-ridden stations around here, I listen to classic rock during the day. My favorite morning show is 2GNC.

The Christmas Contradiction

I love Christmas but I am not religious. For me it is all about sensory indulgence. I love the lights, the smells, decorations, ornaments, cards, trees, presents and carols. I love the commercial hype, not the proselytizing.


I will read anything you put in front of me. I like fiction, erotica, autobiographies, murder mysteries and feminist literature. David Sedaris, Anne Rice and Jeanette Winterson are just a few of the authors I enjoy.



  • chapstick
  • It's Happy Bunny
  • Flying Spaghetti Monster
  • Harry Potter (especially the Weasley twins and Hufflepuff)
  • Luxo Jr. (the Pixar lamp)
  • mermaids
  • She-ra Princess of Power
  • long, dangly earrings
  • silver jewelry
  • Duke Blue Devils basketball
  • Appalachian State University (my alma mater)
  • anything ostentatious


I'm very easy to please. I like all kinds of postcards; the weirder, the better. If you have a postcard you don't know what to do with or that you think no one will like, then send it to me. And if you really want to make me scream like a little girl, I love to receive cards with:

  • flamingos

  • pelicans

  • penguins

  • chinchillas

  • cats

  • emus

  • llamas

  • spoons

  • mermaids

  • Harry Potter

  • Alice in Wonderland

  • cupcakes

  • hedgehogs


  • grape or cherry flavored candy
  • gummy candy (bears, worms, etc.)
  • powder based things like Jell-O or Koolaid
  • overtly religious stuff
  • anything child related (Anne Geddes, Precious Moments, etc.)

Swap Policy

I promise to send and rate on time. If you don't receive something, please let me know.

However, I am not a Swap-zi. I am not going to count the days between the deadline and the postmark. We are all here to have fun and I understand that life happens. If there is an issue, just let me know. That being said, I mark my items as sent when I click send or put them in the post. If it is after the collection time or a holiday, the mail will be picked up the next day.

Comment: I'm guessing the lie is that you won a supply of Pepsi???
Response: Ha, ha! That is actually true. In third grade I wrote an essay for a contest in a barbeque festival and the prize was a year's supply of Pepsi. The lie is that I have a twin brother. I have a brother who is three years younger..
