We've had a bad scare with my hubby the last few months. His immune system is attacking and destroying his platelets. The doctors have diagnosed him with ITP. But the months of worrying triggered MY disease (I'm bipolar type II) and so I've been very out of it all year. If I owe anyone anything please PM and lemme know. Goddess bless.
happy hippy pagan mom, aggressively fighting the stigmas associated with being bi-polar.
I'm 25, married, and mothering. My partner and I have been together for 7 years now, married almost 5. He's 36, and brings with him 2 pretty awesome kids from a previous marriage. They're good kids. We have one child together, a 4 yr old boy I affectionally call "Killer" (abbreviation of his name). I have a Boston terrier named Molly, of an indeterminate age. She's got grays in her eyebrows and a few grays on her stub. She's neat.
I love animals, but don't collect them. I did keep fish for a while but I ended up crying everytime they ate each other which ended up being about every day. So no more fish. I bought 2 finches before halloween, and "my" finch died on halloween. Killer's finch is still alive and peeping.
I have been a vegetarian my whole life. If I ate a piece of meat it would make me sick, I lack enzymes to digest it properly (having never eaten it, except on accident). I was raised vegan, but until they make a good soy cheese I am just a lowly vegetarian. I come from a large family, I am the oldest of 8.
Yadda yadda yadda. Thats the good stuff.
love you elvis! (costello)

greys anatomy, passions, reaper, chuck, house, ace of cakes, iron chef, desperate housewives, lost, heroes, la ink, pushing daisies, the L word,sex in the city,
elephants, tegan and sara, tori amos, tofu, vegetarianism, your favorite cheesecake recipe, stamps from foreign places, PANDAS, bento, old circus photos, cupcakes, bees and boston terriers.
any of that pretty much equals a million hearts to me.
I always appreciate little stickers and things for my son. He's 4. He loves most everything. Cars, Spongebob, dogs, etc. Anything that has wheels or challanges his brain. He adores hot wheels too.
As far as candy (if its a candy swap or something) I do enjoy: swedish fish, raisenettes, gummy bears, peach rings, nestle crunch, etc. Chocolate isnt good to send in the summer tho, I live in a hot climate and it melts. :( I also love cracker jacks. Who doesnt love a prize?
I prefer people not to spend a whole lot, unless the swap specifically calls for it. We try to live frugally and I would feel guilty if someone spent a lot on a swap for me just to get a heart. I award hearts by how much thought and love was put into the swap, not by how much stuff was sent.
IF these things happen to come up: I wear a size medium shirt. I dont eat meat (please dont send leather or shells or feathers). I'm afraid of bugs (mainly spiders) I'm genderqueer, so if that bothers you dont swap with me. I promise not to hit on you through the post.
I smoke but not inside my house and not very often at that.
I play guitar (left handed), new picks are always cool, especially if they are neat looking. I love photobooths, and if my partner ever sent a strip of them it would be instant love! I also like polaroids! Show me something interesting!
A few things I wouldnt like much: *americana memorabilia (flags, etc) *anything disney. I cringe when I see Disney * any religous stuff based on Christianity (unless it is gloriously tacky like a glow in the dark jesus or something) *vanilla scented stuff *tea (my mom sends me like a box a week, no kidding) * lipgloss (I have drawers full of lip stuff)
I'm really easy to please. I'm here to have fun. Check out my myspace, and if you have one please add me as a friend!
ps. if you send me a picture of a sunset from your house, i will reciprocate!
