Right-o. It's July 5, 2009 now. I turn 30 in a few weeks. Thought I might do a swap or two, just for fun. It's been quite a while.
I'm back. (Sort of.) And I'm looking for sweet love. (Totally.)
And I'm totally updating my profile!
I am a 27-year old (I'm 28 now) single woman who is so busy discovering herself that she hardly has time to discover a significant other. But all I really want is to fall in love. Which is why I continue to date (hopelessly). (Actually, it hasn't been so hopeless lately. Eharmony is wicked and I've been dating the same person for a month and a half and he hasn't pissed me off yet.)
I LOVE napping. And slurpees. I am known at work for having naps under my desk on my lunch hour. And having a slurpee for breakfast. I'm a fed and it greatly upsets me that my job does not allow me to utilize either my sweet dance moves or my knitting skills. (I've started listening to knitting podcasts while I work. I'm not so upset now.)
Instead of a significant other, I have two cats named Jesus & Mohammed. They're Scottish Fold so they look quite odd. Jesus likes to pee on my things when he's mad at me. Mohammed is momma's boy and sounds like a wookie on helium. It was their third birthday on June 20! I'm a big freak and I bought them a big climbing tree and sang "Happy Birthday To You" while I brought it into the apartment.
When I get home, the first thing I do is TEAR OFF MY PANTS and put on PJs. Then I read cheesy teen novels or knit/craft while watching movies on my computer. Every Thursday night is girls night. HOLLA. But I generally wear pants there. Well, okay, I'm a big liar. I wear pajama pants. Unless it's at the pub. You never know when you might meet a sexy beast MRAWR!
I believe in a higher power or "Creator", but I hesitate to assign a name or practice or particular relgion to it. I do, however, have an absolute fascination with all religions and would have no problem with receiving items relating to them. WADDUP, RELIGION.
I'm a little bit of a psycho environmentalist. I nag my friends a lot about recycling and I only flush my toiilet once a day. I never feel more at home than when I'm in nature. However, I live in a large city because they have wicked public transit and I don't have a driver's license. (And we have lots of trees.) My work is making me get my license, but that's ok because I'm going to buy an electric motorcycle. (I still don't have my license! But my test is in 3 months?)
I love postcards. I'm currently in the process of planning out a mural using my extensive postcard collection. But I like slurpees most of all. It's not an addiction. It's TRUE LOVE.
(If I was given the choice between a nap or a slurpee, I do not know which I would choose.)
(It would totally be a slurpee. Or a nap. ARGH I STILL CAN'T DECIDE.)
Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Eat World, Imogen Heap, Mike Schmid, also love Celtic music! I'm a big 'ol music whore. I love everything. Mostly.
50 First Dates, FUBAR, Swing Kids, Encino Man, Love Comes Softly, Narnia, Wonderboys, Along Came Polly... and I have a sick obsession with Bring It On. I watch a LOT of movies.
I don't own a TV. I do however, own a computer with a DVD player and downloading capabilities. So I do watch TV shows. Just without the advertising. (WOOHOO.) Dead Like Me, Firefly, Roswell, Wonderfalls, Heroes, and Jeremiah.
Paper crafts, knitting, carving rubber stamps, drawing, painting, about to start a sewing class. I have a seriously bad habit for yarn. I also like stickers and charms and yarn. I am GREEDY.
Sea otters, turtles, weird-looking cats, monkeys, owls, and horses.
Slurpees. Cookies. Candy. Seriously spicy food. Cookies. I am well renknowned on swap-bot for my love of the cookies. Chocolate. Watermelons and strawberries! AND MORE COOKIES.
Hairbands. Peek-a-pooh cell phone charms! T-shirts that say obnoxious things. Hand creams. Sweet, sweet love is my favourite thing of all though. Mrrrawr. Also, I love art Nouveau (Alphonse Mucha is my favourite).
Red is my favourite colour. Particularly of the dark wine variety. However, I have recently found a love of BLUE. And natural colours like greens and browns. And I look really good in magenta. (Pastels make me look like crap though. I know, you care.)
Please no kawaii stuff for me! I don't hate it, I just don't have a use for it. Or boogers. I hate boogers. Nor do I have any use for them. Unless I want to BARF.
What else do I hate? Oh, you know, the regular things... climate change and global warming... global warrrring... people who shove at the Skytrain... an itchy bum crack...
