About Me

Fair warning: Since I've been doing this, I notice that I am not at all good about remembering to check in when I send stuff. I guess it's too much postcrossing! I'm working on getting better at it, but I apologize in advance for any confusion.

I'm a sci-fi buff from way back. I remember Starlost and Space 1999 and a truly horrible show called Quark from the 70's. That would be prior to the original Battlestar Galactica or Buck Rogers. I saw original Star Wars and Close Encounters in the movie theater as first-runs, both with my dad. These days I like Dr Who best. I like the attitude, that human beings are "brilliant!" and that guns are bad. She wins everything with brains and a sonic screwdriver. How cool is that?

I used to be into all kinds of events like renaissance faires and sci fi cons but these days not so much. My interests have instead taken me into the world of social services with an eye to mental health. I am working on a degree in human services. I own a 16 year old cat who I dote on, and I have one grown daughter who lives nearby.

I've been tentatively involved in mail art since the 80's. I just completed some zines for the first time. I'm pretty adventurous which scares a lot of people and I like cities.

I am a Scorpio and a Dragon, depending on which astrology you use. I'm interested in crystals, chakras, cognitive science, astrology, herbalism, knitting and crocheting, assemblage, mental health biographies, art in general, alchemy, anime, travel, japanese culture, yoga, zines, other cultures, lots of stuff. I own cats but I don't collect cat-themed items; with 2 exceptions: I like Hello Kitty esp. Chococat, and I like those vintage Halloween black cats that somehow look insane. I collect rabbits, dragons, lions, owls and seahorses. And yarn! but that's common for knitters. Stones talk to me sometimes.

Comment: I have an aunt who had a similar job as you do; she had to "toss" a 16 year old boy across the room one time, no more acting up from the boys since!

I had sent my swap to you, on time, for "Send Anything: September -USA-." Did you receive it? I don't see your rating on my profile.

I meant....that way when, not that when when........lol....It is getting late. Your profile info looks good. :)

piglet59645 on Nov 11, 2010:

What really helps in filling out profiles, is favorites for me. That when when I am picking something profile based for a swap I know what color or theme ect to choose. :) That way I can choose something my swap partner likes. You telling what you collect is a great help in itself!
