I love statistics, reading, cross stitch, embroidery and crochet (and collecting things to do with all of those).
I have recently returned to the site after a long hiatus, but I think that celebrating 2 years out of the hospital plus 1 year of full time employment means I am ready to send beautiful things out into the world again!
It's probably easier to list music I'm not fond of: country, hard rock, punk and anything with screaming.
This means I quite enjoy: classical, jazz, techno, drum and bass, ambient, swing, pop, rap, classic rock, adult contemporary...
My favourite artists include Eminem, Clay Aiken and anything composed by Gershwin.
My absolute favourite book is Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card (more people are familiar with Ender's Game). I love science fiction/fantasy and am currently re-reading the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, so that I can read the last book. I own pretty much every Orson Scott Card book/writing published, along with most of Jeffery Deaver's books.
I also enjoy "classics", particularly from Russia. I have read War and Peace and Anna Karenina, both of which I count among my favourite books and will readily recommend them to anyone! Other "classics" that I've enjoyed include Lolita (although I found it disturbing) and Catch-22.
I have completely worn out my set of The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S Lewis). My favourite is The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I'm not sure I want to see the movie though!
This spring I plan on reading Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. My favourite children's authors are Beverly Cleary, Madeline L'Engle, Phillip Pullman, Shel Silverstein, and Dr. Suess!
All time favourite: 10 Things I Hate About You. Runner up: Traffic
Others in random order: Lord of the Rings trilogy, Muppet Treasure Island, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Full Metal Jacket, The Great Escape, The Dark Knight, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Space Jam, Cruel Intentions I and II.
What's a television? I can't say I've watched that much television in the last couple years, but I've always enjoyed Law & Order and CSI: Las Vegas. I secretly watch America's Next Top Model on my computer.
I am a newly minted Trekkie. I have just finished watching the Original Series and am on the The Next Generation currently. I have a cute little Tribble and am planning my first Trek cosplay!
I love crafting. Mainly I stick to cross stitch, embroidery and crochet, although I am trying to learn how to sew. I finally managed to get my sewing machine out and on to my desk. Now I just need to plug it in and learn how to use it!
I love ATCs, so I've been picking up all sorts of papers, markers, pencil crayons, ink, ribbon, tape, embellishments, etc. Soon I will need to find a new apartment just to hold all of my ATC materials! I have a silhouette machine that I am still trying to master to help me get the designs I envision on to paper without me mangling it with my sub par scissor skills!
Aside from swapping, I lead a fairly quiet life. I am definitely an introverted person (in the "my personal batteries recharge when I am not in a crowd" meaning).
I am addicted to my cell phone, but I am trying to break that habit by getting back into my crafty hobbies.
I occasionally LARP with my boyfriend, but I truly just enjoy the costuming and role playing aspects and hate the combat. Luckily, he is always in need of new costuming so that keeps me busy. i am trying to improve my sewing skills so I can make all the fantasy costumes my imagination can devise!
I am a doting cat mom. My little guy lights up my life. I do understand that he may not have such a positive impact on your life, so I do my best to ensure my crafts and items are cat hair free.
I'm never any good at coming up with lists of things I want (drives my Mom crazy for Christmas and my birthday!), but I'll give it a shot since one can never have too much swappy stuff!
I love tea. My go to favourite is Earl Grey, but I enjoy green tea, white tea, rooibos, chai, black, herbal etc. Basically, if it's a tea type drink, I will drink it, so don't be afraid to send me something you don't like!
Postcards: I like them cute, please no adverstising ones unless they are nerdy/comic booky/superhero-y.
