About Me

I'm 29 and live with my boyfriend in the DC metro area. I am overly sarcastic and have a relatively sick and twisted sense of humor, therefore I am not easily offended. I can find the humor in any situation. Don't be scared to send me something avant garde and risque.

I spend a lot of time reading, playing video games, working out with my wii or practicing to be a ninja.

I'm a scientist. I won't bore you with details. Needless to say I will appreciate math and nerd/geek jokes.

I try and screw netflix by watching as many movies as possible, I'm below 100 movies in my queue now.

I'm up for private swaps. If you're interested shoot me a message!

Collectibles: metal lunchboxes, Potatoheads, sailor moon stuff, Edward Gorey books

Video Games: Plants vs Zombies, Mario Kart, Dance dance revolution, Super Mario (all games), Sims 2 and Sims 3, Kingdom Hearts, wii fit, brain games and fitness games like Zumba and cardio boxing on my wii and nintendo ds, Professor Layton and his magical adventures, any Legend of Zelda games

Things I like: books, earrings, crafts (including supplies), interesting coffee and espresso, creepy dolls, cool art, music, movies, magazines, fabric, anything purple, polymer clay and jewelry findings that I can use in my craft projects

Things I DON'T like: candles, people who park their shopping carts in the middle of the aisle, licorice

Allergies: None

Favorite Crafts

-Beading (including kumihumo) -Making Jewelry -Polymer Clay -Painting (I'm not very good, but I try) -Sewing (still in beginner project stages) -Renovating thrift store finds -Decoupage -Mix CDs

I try and be more crafty and expand my list. Sometimes a crafty mess occurs but sometimes a new hobby is found.

Favorite Music

The Donnas, Cake, Nightwish, Enya, Fall Out Boy, Flogging Molly, The Killers, Ledo, Matchbook Romance, OK Go, Ace of Base, Poe, Nickelback, Regina Spektor, Taking Back Sunday, Bon Jovi, The White Stripes, Avril Lavigne, Within Temptation, Linkin Park, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, ACDC, Lady Sovereign, Evanescence, Princess Superstar, Shakira, Apocalyptica, Ladytron, Metallica, Nickel Creek, Micheal Buble, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Muse, Offspring, Barenaked Ladies, My Chemical Romance, Superchick, Lily Allen, Alien Ant Farm, Aqua, Beethoven, Charlotte Church, The Bird and the Bee, Damone, The Afters, Hole, Bree Sharp, Nelly Furtado

There's a good mix there, I love a lot of good and bad stuff!

I like the 90s, pop and musicals!

Music I don't like: r&b or country

Favorite Books

Books: Pride and Prejudice, Good Omen, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, Anita Blake vampire Hunter series, Stephanie Plum bounty hunter series (apparently hunters are a big thing), Blink, The Sex Lives of Cannibals, The Geography of Bliss, Harry Potter series

Authors: Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, Julie Garwood, Carl Hiaasen, Janet Evanovich, Laurell Hamilton, Christine Feehan

I collect Edward Gorey books.

Magazines: Bust, ReadyMade (so sad it's gone!), Wired

I love trashy romance novels, young adult fiction (like the Iron King), trivia books, and generally ridiculous funny novels.

Favorite Movies

Movies: Amelie, Pride and Prejudice (BBC version), Underworld (1 and 2), The Holiday, The Dark Crystal, Star Wars (original), Batman (Michael Keaton and Christian Bale), Connie and Carla, anything involving Victorian England, Phantom of the Opera, Saved!, V for Vendetta, Sliding Doors

Daria, Project Runway, Clean House, The Oblongs, Dexter, True Blood, Sailor Moon, Witch Hunter Robin, Mystery Science Theater, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time

I don't watch a lot of prime time

Wish List

My favorite colors are red and purple....so of course anything with those colors

I would love to receive anything hand crafted/ homemade - especially jewelry

I'm a HUGE fan of earrings (I'll wear posts but the dangly is great!!)

I am always looking for:

sewing patterns for clothing/crafty type projects

recipes for any type of food (no blank recipe cards)

Anything Sailor Moon/Daria related (I have a deep obsession for Sailor Moon and will collect any items related to it although I do have most of the barbies)

Mr/Mrs Potatoheads ( I collect all kinds of potatoheads even the babies and I have a Dr. Potatohead but would love the other themed potatoheads like star wars and superhero spuds)

I love trashy romance novels with ridiculous covers with romantic staged poses

Mixed CDs

I really dig werewolves and vampires (not Twilight but watch True Blood, read Anne Rice, Anita Blake series and anything else I can get my hands on)

interesting stickers (funny/cute is good)

I like receiving funny cards and ridiculous pictures/photos

I drink coffee and hot chocolate but not tea.

I love anything relating to fairy tales and that includes Disney (I do not like Winnie the Pooh or Lilo and Stitch but all Pixar movies are great and my favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast)

Anything related to Pride and Prejudice (I have read the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and will read all spinoffs of that genre and have read already Mr Darcy's Daughters/Darcy and Elizabeth/Mr Darcy Takes a Wife and love to read other people's interpretations)

Comment: It was you!! One of my favorite tote bags is a reversible blue/floral one. I knew I got it in a swap, but couldn't remember when or from whom. When I opened the big box today, I pulled out a tote and did the happy dance! I always get compliments on the boho bag and now I have another! Thank you. P.S. I think the fox notebook is going to be my NaNo 2016 notebook.

Comment: Thank you for your writing about orange. You know it is a happy color. Related to sunshine and wanting to be noticed. I am wearing the beads, which were visible when envelope arrived. Envelope was torn at the corner.I like butterflies and never know what to do with sticky notes. You may be too young to remember when orange was favorite color for decorating your home. I had orange upholstered chairs for a time in the 70s. Dining room wallpaper was orange and black when we bought our house. I changed that to a soothing blue.

Comment: Hurray for you, wearing orange is not for the faint of heart. In fact people wearing what they feel like is pretty unusual. Thanks too for the articles and the necklace.
