About Me

Greetings!

I've been in and out of swap-bot for the past couple years and have greatly enjoyed participating in it. It's such great fun! I'm looking forward to future swaps.

A bit about me. I'm an east coaster currently residing on the west coast. Some day I'll move back east... I have two cats who are the light of my life and am well on my way to being one of those crazy cat ladies... it may even be a goal of mine.

I work in a cupcake bakery frosting cupcakes (yes, really). However, I just got my massage license and am looking forward to putting that to good use soon. I'm thinking of going into oncology or hospice massage work as that area of life has long drawn on me.

I am getting into folk music (Girlyman!) and love most anything French or Finnish. I love classical as well as metal... most anything that has some substance to it. I play several instruments but have most skill in viola, piano, and guitar. I also adore cooking and baking and trying new foods. I'm not a fan of raw tomatoes or raw onions, but other than that anything goes.

I very rarely dabble in spinning (yarn, not cycling) and used to write a lot but don't do that so much anymore. I miss it. I practice two martial arts and would pretty much call them my religion.

I adore rain, fire, and the colour blue. I would love to be able to fly.

A Note on "Stuff"

I live in a crammed and bitsy apartment with two cats tearing the already cluttered place up. I choose swaps that won't create 'stuff' (and I am sorry if this comes across as rude, it is not my intention for it to). If you wish to include something extra a la heart rating, a recipe, bag of tea, or a music recommendation, favourite poem, favourite author, or even a quick note saying 'hi!' would be lovely. I'm not very crafty, so while I will look at stickers or yarn or scrapbook supplies and say 'shiny!' I have no use for them and feel bad that they end up sitting around... so that is my round about request for stuff-less extras if you are of that inclination. Thank you thank you. I appreciate all the generosity!

Comment: Ah, wonderful :) I’m your partner, and have expressed formal thanks in writing also, but I loved your reading and the way you tied the cards together - one of the trickier parts, for me, in a reading. The reading was accurate, but in particular, the advice is good and made me feel more positive about having made the right decision. I feel I will be consulting that piece of paper frequently :) I’m also really interested in Symbolon pack – partly because I found the reading intriguing, partly because on googling the pack is SO GORGEOUS and the artstyle speaks to me in a way that mine, basically, doesn’t. And I've totally just ordered one! Thanks, and have a fantastic week
Response: Yay! I am so glad to hear all of that. I don't do readings for others frequently so was curious how that might go. The Symbolon deck is gorgeous, no? I think I told you I call it my 'uncanny deck' as it has a habit if cutting right to the situation. May you enjoy it as much as I have. Also, I look forward to your letter. Thank you!

Comment: Hey, thanks so much for sharing your answers! Yeah, I've heard of Girlyman... they're on Amy Ray's label, and they're Atlanta-based, so they are definitely cool with me. I'm actually hoping they play at Pride this year! We have a ton of great LGBT artists around here like Kristy Lee, Doria Roberts, etc. I'm hoping I get to catch a lot of nice outdoor shows this summer! Hope you have a great day :)
Response: Thank you for reading! And yay for Girlyman! That's awesome! Thanks for the lovely comment and rating both^_^

Comment: I loved the fact that you are so honest in your responses.. Hugs...:-)
Response: One of my tai chi mentors once wrote that all those who follow their paths with honesty have benefited him in some way. I just loved the idea... to follow my path with honesty. So I try to. I'm so glad you appreciated that. Take care and thank you for the comment!

Comment: Leigh, I got your package today. Thank you so much! Some of the Thai tea had managed to leak from the bag but not too much and I just put it in a new bag so it'll keep well :) I'm sorry you had to spend so much on postage but I'm sure I'll enjoy everything you sent ^_^ Contact me about the CD's when you've moved or at any convenient time, I'm happy to help! You can also send that Finnish letter any time you want but I'm moving next weekend too so remember to check my new address :)
Response: Yay! Sorry to hear the tea leaked, but glad you think you'll like everything! Again, thanks so much for doing this swap with me! I'll be sure to get in touch once I move (tomorrow, eep!) and again thank you for being so very helpful! I hope your own move goes well and will talk to you soon-ish^_^ Thanks also for the wonderful rating and comment! All around I appreciate everything^_^ Thanks!

Hi - I just wanted to let you know that I did get your reading in the mail today! Keep me posted. Carmen

Hi! Hope your "summer of finishing" project is going well! I'm writing too, but for school, so it's not as much fun. Can't wait to hear about your progress!

badkitty1782 on Jul 9, 2008:

Sorry about accidentally sending the same blank message over and over again! Stupid technology! Anyhoo . . . I just wanted to make it "pubicly" known that your surprise package was really sweet and thoughtful and made a gloomy day much brighter! :o)

sunrooms on Jun 30, 2008:

just wanted to let you know that i received the first half of your summer of finishing letter. i wish you all the luck in finishing all of your projects this summer! :)

tamipal6 on Jun 28, 2008:

That's so interesting that my profile didn't influence your memoirs! I just re-read them and I realize that what made me think that was that you mentioned butterflies and dancing and being the change. :) You have some good ones that I enjoyed reading. I like your wording. I think you focused more on inner thoughts, characteristics, and aspirations and I was kind of giving an autobiography from the more boring "timeline/facts" standpoint. :)

tinkerbelljen on Jun 19, 2008:

Hey :] I really did enjoy doing the 'letter to your younger self' swap...but mine was nowhere near as good as yours!! I found yours SO interesting and SO well written!! You can tell you're a good writer :] and the stickers totally made my day, hehe! You're welcome for the heart..if I could have given you more I would have done <3 How are you? xxx
