About Me

I'm currently working full time and going to school part time, trying to make my life easier by saving money and bringing my lunch every day to work, and now also by bringing dinner to eat before class as well. I have two dogs (a Pekingese-Shih tzu and a Beagle/French bulldog) that I adore. AND I LOVE FOOD!!!

Favorite Music

The Beatles are the all time greatest band ever. I also like classical music, anything with a good beat, pop music, and though I tend to avoid heavy metal/headbanging music and country, I've been known to get "a little country" every now and again or pop on some Metallica/Nirvana ;)

Favorite Books

Currently, I read for enjoyment (aside from schoolbooks), so I prefer light and fluffy novels, like chick-lit and the like. I also like historical fiction, cookbooks, fantasy/sci-fi... anything that has a great plot. I'm open minded. Oh and I like comic books :)

Favorite Movies

Love comedies and chick-flicks for that escape from reality, but I also like horror/psychological thrillers and really, again, anything that has a good plot and can keep me interested.

Favorite Television

HIMYM, Big Bang Theory, Scrubs, The Office, Kath & Kim, South Park

Random bits

I don't drink coffee and while I LOVE a good cup of hot chocolate every now and again, I'm not a big chocolate (to eat) person. I like tea - but I have a ton of Earl Grey from well-meaning friends, but wouldn't mind other kinds to try new things. I'm caffeine-sensitive so if you can, please keep that in mind. If not, no big deal! Also, my current favorite style of tea is Japanese green tea (genmai or junmai or some alternative spelling of that), but I'm not a fan of fruit-flavored teas. Something about hot fruit doesn't appeal to me. (Besides hot apple pie with ice cream... hehe) My favorite color is pink - light, not hot - soft baby pink. I love learning new things, being exposed to new cultures and/or cuisines, and trying new things. I am effusively friendly and incredibly talkative... (see this profile?!) And here's the part that I feel like I'm asking for stuff, but oh well, I'd rather not deal with... yeah... So, I'm allergic to coconut and raspberries. I prefer savory items to sweets. I don't bake at all but love to cook. I have tons of body lotions and scented soaps and all of those bath items that girls love and give each other, so if at all possible, please don't send me any of those (I've been giving away all of mine). I adore pillar candles and pretty much any pretty scented candles (I like cherry blossom as a scent, to give you an idea of what I like, not so much on the heavy or musky scents). I'm a size medium... Um, I think that's it! Thanks for reading :)

PS And sorry because this is probably against the very nature of this site... but I am not crafty at all. AT. ALL. I don't have the patience to sit down and cut fiddly things and I don't have the artistic side to draw or anything, though I can write you a beautiful story if you like, I can't make anything :( Sorry...

PPS I appreciate everything and anything sent to me, even if it falls under the categories that I can't or won't be using/enjoying them! I generally pass along those things because I firmly believe that just because it isn't to my taste, doesn't mean someone else won't like it, so please don't be offended if you discover I've passed along one of your goodies to someone else in another swap! Spread the love!!!

Comment: I will be more than willing to re-rate if you would like to send. I am very sad as this was an email swap and should have been easy to complete. This is the second time that I have ever left a 1 rate on swapbot and I really do not like doing it

Comment: I see you marked your package as sent, but nothing has arrived, and you've not responded to my PMs. I see you haven't logged into the site since April 8th, so I will re-rate if/when I ever receive anything.

Comment: April 27th: It is now 2.5 weeks after the swap deadline, and you marked that you sent this swap April 1st...that was 27 days ago. I still have not received anything which is very disappointing given the nature of the swap and very surprising given the perfect 5 rating you have going so far. I have messaged you and not heard anything back. I also see that you have not logged into Swap-bot since the 8th which is troublesome as well. If I receive anything from you I will change the rating. Please please write me back and let me know what's going on, if there was a problem with the package or anything. I don't want to have give you a 1, but no package = 1. UPDATE: Aug. 2nd - I've been in tough with this swapper several times since the send date and she says she mailed the swap at her work, and even mailed me a replacement swap at her work, but I never received either of these and it's about 2 months since she told me she mailed the replacement, so the 1 stands. How disappointing!

Comment: thanks for the super great treats..I think one the toys are a little bit big ..since Freeda is a mini-weenie, but she loves the tug rope! Thanks for a really great swap.
Response: So glad you like them and thanks again for being so understanding about the mixup at the post office! I wasn't sure if that one was too big for her but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway - glad she likes the rope, seems like most dogs like rope toys :)

Comment: Thank you so much for the package! The bag is wonderful(it was used in its first shopping trip today!) I loved everything(especially the set of pencils/pens/highlighters/eraser/lead/post its!) You went way above and beyond and i am so grateful. It was wonderful because i had a really bad day and i came home and got to open this amazing package! Thank you so much!!
Response: I am SO glad you liked everything! I really tried to go by your profile and what the swap was meant to be :) And yes- that bag is larger than most of the reuseable grocery totes I've come across which is why I try to spread the love with them as much as possible! :) Hooray and I'm glad I could turn your bad day around even a little bit :)

Comment: Above and beyond! Thank you so much! I just got your package yesterday, and I love the peach one best! I'd love to know where you found those flavors!
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I'll be perfectly honest with you, someone actually sent me those from another swap... I'm not a big fruit-tea person but I thought someone else might enjoy them and I guess you did :)

I received the package I sent you for the newbie profile swap back from the post office as unclaimed. I hope everything is okay. Please let me know if you want me to re-send it.

Hello from a fellow foodie! I have abook recomendation for you! If you haven't yet, you should read "Belle in the Big Apple" by Brooke Parkhurst. It seems like it would be your thing.
