About Me

My name is Robin, and so far I've been alive for somewhat over half a century.

Born and raised in Indiana, USA, I lived the first 20+ years of my adult life in Mexico City, Mexico, then in Costa Rica (Central America) for a couple of years. I now reside in South Florida, where I delight in the mix of cultures and cuisines (Cuban, Dominican, Haitian, South American, New York/Jersey, and more). I´m female, 100% bilingual English-Spanish, joyfully Roman Catholic, happily married to a man born and raised in South America. This is all pretty exotic for an introvert who grew up in a monolingual Midwestern milieu! [chuckle]

I´ve worked at quite a variety of jobs in my lifetime, including teacher of English as a foreign language at a college for many years, airline reservations agent, direct in-home support to adults with developmental disabilities, big-box store cashier, clerk at a thrift store, and call center agent. I would love to retire from a day job someday, but unless a major miracle occurs, that will not be possible.

In addition to the usual 9-to-5, I spent 5 years developing recipes and writing (in Spanish) about authentic Mexican food for About.com. Now I contribute similar content in English to the food & cooking section at thespruce.com

Languages

Fluent in English and Spanish. Have studied some Italian, Portuguese, German, and Polish. I love language, languages, and linguistics! However, I am not usually very talkative at all -- go figure. I do tend to be more loquacious in writing, as evidenced by the length of this profile! lol

Miscellaneous LIkes

Likes/loves include

--FOLKLORE, popular culture and festivals, local history and quirky local places, the history and traditions of HOLIDAYS of all sorts (I adore Groundhog Day!)

--Cooking, BAKING, cookbooks; reading, talking about, trying and developing recipes.

--TURTLES (freshwater), llamas, cats, lizards, otters, fireflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, butterflies, groundhogs, and robin birds (especially since my name is Robin); now learning to love all kinds of tropical wildlife. My husband is an enthusiast of sloths, pandas, and bears in general.

--SUNFLOWERS, suns, smiley faces, the color yellow and cheerful things in general

--crosswords, mazes, jigsaw puzzles, kaleidoscopes, board GAMES

--visiting MUSEUMS of all kinds, also botanical gardens, conservatories, etc; also birdwatching and simple gardening, especially succulents (currently just in containers—we live in an apartment)

--ART and artistic and artsy craftsy stuff in general; ancient art, cave art, folk art, "primitive" art, and outsider / visionary art are particular favorites

--artistic ATCs and all sorts of snail mail postal joy

--Americana (USA) and anything Latin American and/or Caribbean

Occasional creative endeavors

Linoleum print carving, mini-zine making, drawing, painting, cross stitch, creative writing, adult coloring, zendoodling, woodburning, very simple sewing, papercrafts, floral arranging; would love to try a lot more things.

Not particularly into ...

I am totally not cool. On most days I'm pretty much okay with that, though I do apologize for any discomfort my dorkiness may cause. [winsome smile]

Sorry, but I am not into gothic/dark, tattoos/piercings, Disney, video games, cynicism, polical bashing, anime, manga, feminism, new age, erotica, vampies or zombies, kawaii, or gourmet coffee. I´m not big on shopping (except for groceries, I do enjoy grocery shopping! oh, and thrift stores) and I am working on being less sarcastic.

However, I'm really not at all as crochety and dour as I know that last paragraph makes me sound. :-) While I do strive to be the best me that I can be, I do not believe that perfectionism is healthy.

Rating, Flakers, and Flaking

I will always rate you for a swap I received. It might not happen the very same day that I receive your item (I can sometimes go a few days between visits to the site), but it will be within a week.

I've been a member here at Swap-Bot pretty much since the beginning of the site. My level/intensity of swapping activity has varied widely through the years. I've seen many trends come and go, as you might imagine.

In recent years it has become quite popular here to maintain a "wall of shame" or list of people who have flaked. I choose not to do that. There have been quite a few who have "done me wrong," and, yes, of course it´s unpleasant, but I consider this an issue only between my partner and myself. I have given people low ratings when warranted -- and I consider that sufficient "punishment." If your views differ on this, I respect that. Please also respect mine.

As for my own (few and long ago) 1s and 3s: I am not proud of them, and I accept them without argument as fair consequences for my actions at the time. However, I don´t usually discuss those ratings with anyone besides the people directly involved.

I Can Always Use

--address labels

--stickers (no reward or tiny)

--zines or mini zines (relatively clean, please)

--large blank unused notecards or greeting cards, blank inside or with a general cheery message (5x7 inches is ideal)

--small denomination banknotes or coins from anywhere in the world

--your very own tried and true favorite recipes

--recipe pamphlets (like the ones given out for free with a food product)

--cookbooks with recipes from real people (like those made for fundraising by churches and civic groups)

--bookmarks, epecially handmade or the freebie ones given out by libraries, museums, bookstores, etc.

--lip balm in interesting flavors (not strawberry, bubble gum, or dill pickle flavored)

--plant cuttings or seeds for succulent plants (with growing instructions)

-Catholic miscellany (rosaries, images of saints, etc.)

--"discarded" pieces of cross stitch/embroidery or old crocheted doilies/dresser scarves—It always kills me when I see a stitched picture for sale at a thrift store, because some poor woman worked hard and long on it only for someone else to go and throw it out/donate it. I do understand downsizing and all, but this is the type of valuable piece that can be used to create something else (pillow, pin cushion, greeting card, whatever), so I try to "rescue" these precious items when I can and the price is reasonable.

Comment: Just when I start thinking about taking a break from swapping I get your envelope and I am blown away! Thank you so so much for the tea and taking the time to write to me! This recipe looks absolutely amazing and I actually put some eggs on to boil tonight to try them out! lol I have not watched the last season of Grimm yet but my husband did watch it without me and said it was good. I'm rebelling because I don't want it to be over! lol As for Criminal Minds....I have to say that Spencer is my favorite. However Penelope is a very close second ;) So...I guess we share common likes in characters also! ha! I agree The Good Doctor is pretty good also. He makes me smile! I have really gotten into Outlander and Star Trek Discovery lately...oh! and 911. Not all at once though ha! Thank you so much for an awesome swap!

Ground Hog Day profile decorations

Hello, Happy Ground Hog Day and thank you for joining my swap, personally I follow NY Staten Island Chuck and I am hoping he doesn't see his shadow and we get an early spring!
