Proud, bustin' my buttons, 66 y.y. (years young) grandmother to my 6 y.o. rascal of a granddaughter, Asha. Have one daughter, one sister, 2 loyal friends,and many acquaintances. In the past have done prison outreach, mentoring for a homeless family, been activity aide at a hospital, have contacted lots of servicemen/servicewomen as a member of Soldiers' Angels, Adopt a US Soldier and Camo Angels. Retired as of 10/16/2009 -- YAY! Love cruising -- only to the Mexican Riviera so far 3x. Quirky sense of humor. I'll always laugh with you, never at you. Judgment's not a big part of my vocabulary. Trust? You've got it right off the bat; your actions determine whether or not you keep it.
Love thrift shops, journalling, adding to intention board; not necessarily in that order. Also, have a real jones for the Internet.
Adele rules. The Dunwells are a wonderful rock/acoustic group from "across the pond." Diana Krall, Los Temerarios (Si Tu Te Vas), Kumbia Kings (Los Duetos); Soul, R&B, Alternative, Classical, Rock and Roll, Il Divo (not sure what category they fit into, but they can be my boytoys anytime). Cannot abide chants of any type, scatting or really loud head-banging stuff.
Non-Fiction (Self-Help, Women's Health), Fiction (no Romance please). Iris Johansen's suspense novels are my guilty pleasure and, currently, the 4 books of The Twilight Saga -- still haven't read "Breaking Dawn" only 'cause I don't want to be done with these just yet.
Anything with Johnny Depp or Cate Blanchett. Slumdog Millionaire, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Atonement, Brokeback Mountain, The Duchess, Leaving Las Vegas, Dark Knight, Passage to India, Enchanted April, Pride and Prejudice, Howard's End.
True Blood FANATIC -- Bill = yum. Weeds, Dexter, Nurse Jackie, Survivor, Amazing Race, The Biggest Loser, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, PBS, Tyra Banks, America's Top Model, Gordon Ramsay, Cold Case, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Dancing with the Stars, Saving Grace.
Scrapbooking, ATC's, and whimsey jars.
POSTCARDS: State-wise, I need the following -- Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan, New York, West Virginia and Wyoming. For others, your choice.
Hummingbirds: No, not the critter. Already have several ornaments, a desk clock, framed pictures, windchimes (3) and that's what my screensaver is currently. There's a story behind this which I'll save for another time.
Cat and ocean-related Figurines: Ceramic, glass and wood.
Chicano/Brown Pride items: No, I'm not Chicana but this is an homage to my bf. I'm pretty much open to ideas on this.
Stickers: No Kawaii or Hello Kitty please, as I'm really maxed out on these. Really like anything Mrs. Grossman or Disney-related.
Bollywood (Anything): I was a fan even before "Slumdog Millionaire" kicked butt at the Academy Awards. Have sat through many a 2-3 hour Hindi movie (with subtitles, of course).
Twilight stuff: Edward and Bella give forever an even better twist.
Dragonflies now intrigue me, so I guess I'll start collecting almost anything related to them.
Love most hues of most colors but especially burgundy, deep blue, teal. Cannot abide orange in any shade or neons.
I would appreciate not receiving any #1 ratings unless you've first checked with me as to whether or not the item is on the way. In case of items that "disappear" en route (which happened on something I sent) I'd like a chance to make things right. Thanks so much.
