About Me

NOTE (3/16/17): I will be visiting family overseas through the first week of April and am thus scaling back on swaps. I will be starting my Write_On 30 Letters in 30 Days Challenge abroad and look forward to resuming swapping in earnest when I return :)

UPDATE (4/12/17): I returned from my overseas adventure over the weekend and am still dealing with brutal jet lag (facepalms). I just received my withheld mail from the past 3+ weeks and am slowly but surely reading and rating the swell mail from my partners as well as catching up with my Write_On letterwriting.

UPDATE (5/25/17): I am still finding mail that was misplaced while I was out of the country last month, and I am doing my best to catch up with ratings while making sure to rate new receipts as soon as I find them in my mailbox. Thank you for your patience ♄ My darling girl Kuting has also been missing for over a month, and while I am grateful everyday for Uling, Kuting's absence has been palpable.

music student. singer. bookworm. paper aficionado. journaler. tea drinker. runner. Zumba! instructor. history buff. cat "meow-my" to two affectionate, amusing ladies (Kuting, or in Tagalog, "little cat," a grey and white shorthair and Uling, or "charcoal," her black cat daughter). Wanderlust-stricken!

My username references one of my favorite novels, Donna Tartt's tapestry-like The Goldfinch, and one of my favorite songs, "Meadowlark," introduced by Patti LuPone in Stephen Schwartz's ill-fated musical, The Baker's Wife.

I would be a Ravenclaw (or Thunderbird at Ilvermorny), and my Amortentia would smell like a library, freshly sharpened pencils, English breakfast tea, two-by-fours and stage make-up, and Quelques Fleurs.

I pledge...

I aim to send postcards the day (or day after) partners are assigned and certainly by the send-by date. I hit "send" once I drop my mail in my personal box -- pick-up is anytime between 10 AM-4 PM on weekdays and around 4 PM CST on Saturdays.

There is also a local postbox whose contents are collected at 1 PM weekdays and 12 PM Saturdays, but this does not guarantee a postmark from that day (especially if a swap send-by date is on the weekend). "Last call" at my local post office is 5 PM weekdays. I am not a flake, and in the event of tardiness, I will communicate.

I will never rate someone down if he/she/they take/s the time to let me know that the swap they're sending me will be late before the send-by date, and I hope others will do the same for me!

I love the "Aha!" moment when I think of just the right card/stamp/s to select based on a partner's profile, unless that member doesn't list interests/likes or requests a surprise.

If you do not receive something from me within a reasonable amount of time (please allow for seasonal delays and/or international transit, which, from my Postcrossing experience, can be between 1-3+ weeks), please let me know before giving me a poor rating; I would be happy to re-send. I seriously have had nightmares of receiving a 1. Thank you :)

I pride myself on taking time to ensure each swap has adequate (if not more, if I want to use a specific image/stamp) postage and hope my partners do the same.

If you have not been rated, I have not yet received your swap, and I look forward to reading/seeing/opening your happy mail!

Favorite Music

Favorite artists include (I understand that the following musicians could fit under multiple categories, but in the interest of organization... :)

Popular: Vampire Weekend (seen twice, met once; they were generous and gentlemanly), HAIM, Ra Ra Riot, The 1975, BØRNS, Grimes, Baio, St. Vincent, Flight of the Conchords (7/11/16 was one of the funniest, best concerts ever -- my face and throat hurt from smiling, laughing, and whooping so much!), Gotye, Kimbra, Clean Bandit, Lady Gaga, Nellie McKay, Jenny Lewis, Rilo Kiley, Goldfrapp, Jon Brion, Sara Bareilles (especially her What's Inside: Songs from Waitress), Ingrid Michaelson, Keane, Michelle Branch, Natalie Imbruglia, Garbage, Duncan Sheik, Lisa Loeb, Shania Twain, "Weird Al" Yankovic (one of the best concerts I've ever attended!), Kylie Minogue, Amy Grant, Kate Bush, David Bowie!!!, Olivia Newton John, The B-52s, Sérgio Mendes + Brasil '66, Carpenters, The Beatles, Hall & Oates, Ella Fitzgerald, and anything that I could teach in my Zumba class!

Favorite Books

I am usually into biography, history, and literary fiction, but I am making an effort to incorporate other genres, like short story, poetry, and drama. I do enjoy historical fiction, except I often find myself taking breaks to learn more about the real-life figures and/or eras as well as pick apart what is fact from dramatic license or speculation.

I usually like to read something completely different from my last book, but sometimes I read several books related to a specific period (like reading the intriguing Frederic Morton's Thunder at Twilight: Vienna 1913/1914 and Simon Winder's Danubia in succession when I was on a Habsburg empire kick last fall).

Favorite authors include Donna Tartt, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Edith Wharton, Margaret Mitchell, Anthony Doerr, Ray Bradbury, E.L. Konigsburg, Margaret Atwood, Aldous Huxley, Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game blew my mind, so very good and cautionary), Evelyn Waugh, Erik Larson, Amor Towles, and Frederic Morton.

I am obsessed with the iconic Penguin Classic paperback covers and well-designed covers in general.

Favorite Movies

Anything Wes Anderson, especially Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Grand Budapest Hotel; The Handmaiden (so artfully done, gripping, and surprising -- the 2.5 hours zipped past, and I was genuinely invested in both the titular handmaiden Tamako and her lady/mistress Hideko); The Lobster (wonderfully droll dystopian black comedy); Paterson; Carol (even though I was disappointed that certain details were altered/conflated/eliminated, it was a beautifully made, exquisite film that captured the spirit of Ms. Highsmith's The Price of Salt); Crimson Peak (more for the production/costume design and the cast than the plot); Populaire (I love the setting, colors, fashion, music, the chemistry between Romain Duris and Déborah François, and the dreamy vintage typewriters!); Mood Indigo (although it is tragic); Only Lovers Left Alive (so dreamily languid and just plain cool; I wish I had Tilda/Eve's ability to speedread and likely retain many languages); Star Trek Into Darkness; Black Swan (I just wish there had been more dancing featured -- I know it was more about Nina's psychological breakdown -- and behind-the-scenes content on the DVD/BluRay); The King's Speech; Enchanted; The Lake House; Bridget Jones's Diary: The Edge of Reason; Iron Jawed Angels; Bridget Jones's Diary; My Big Fat Greek Wedding; Amélie; Down With Love; Lost in Translation; Chicago; Center Stage; Zoolander (both of those two are guilty pleasures... I've seen them so many times I can recite the dialogue); You've Got Mail; The Parent Trap (1998 Nancy Meyers-directed remake); Home Alone 2: Lost in New York; Home Alone; Beauty and the Beast (the 1991 Oscar-nominated Disney animated version); When Harry Met Sally; Valmont; Moonstruck; Heathers; Labyrinth (I was aware of it as a child and only recently finally watched it in its entirety -- I probably would have acquiesced to Jareth, though, haha); 9 to 5; Star Wars (especially A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and Rogue One -- I hadn't expected that last one to be as heartrending and emotional, and I don't think I've cried as much during a Star Wars film!); The Slipper and the Rose; Young Frankenstein; The Sound of Music; Gypsy; Inside Daisy Clover; An Affair to Remember; An American in Paris; Singin' in the Rain; Gone With the Wind.

I also aspire to watch more of the Criterion Collection (and wish that more films came with such comprehensive extras :)

Favorite contemporary film actresses include Helen Mirren, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Anjelica Huston, Stockard Channing, Viola Davis, Alicia Vikander, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Rachel McAdams, Felicity Jones, Renée Zellweger, Amy Ryan, Amy Adams, Melissa McCarthy, Léa Seydoux, Sarah Paulson, and Tilda Swinton.

Favorite actors include Tom Hiddleston, Oscar Isaac, Diego Luna, Idris Elba, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zachary Quinto, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Ben Whishaw, Alan Tudyk (K-2SO!), Christian Bale, Kevin Spacey, Colin Firth, and Gene Wilder (rest in peace).

Favorite Television

Comedy: Who's the Boss? (for the palpable love among the cast/family, Angela's amazing wardrobe and coifs in and out of the office, and of course, the sweet, sexy, smart dynamic between Tony Danza and Judith Light)

Drama: Mad Men (on the surface, it's design porn, but I like its melodrama and intersection with history and Peggy Olson's ascent)

Other favorites: Bob's Burgers (recently finished binge-watching -- where has it been all my life?! I identify with Louise's feistiness, Linda's exuberance and tendency to break into song, and Tina's quiet, awkward intensity and proclivity for looking for love in all the wrong places XD), White Collar (I always knew about it but only recently finished the series for the first time -- wow! I love the father-son/brotherly dynamic between Neal and Peter, the chemistry of the cast, art-centric cases, NYC setting, the revolving door of Broadway familiar faces), Veep (ahhh, brilliant, if colorful fun... poor Jonah and Richard... but I am a little sad after this most recent season and eager to see how the gang will adapt in the next), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (I knew about this but am finally getting into it... the variety and quality of musical parodies as well as Rachel Bloom's versatility are amazing), Flight of the Conchords, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper and Tituss Burgess are comedic gold), Parks & Recreation, 30 Rock, Ugly Betty, The Office, Arrested Development, Crossing Jordan (excellent chemistry among the cast, and the re-enactments were mesmerizing), Legends of the Hidden Temple (bless Kirk Fogg's jokes and passive-aggressive shade-throwing and Dee Baker's voiceover work as Olmec and the historical figures in the legends), Clarissa Explains It All (her quirky, edgy fashion sense and hilarious video games), The Magic School Bus (the beginning of my admiration of Lily Tomlin), Bill Nye the Science Guy, Reading Rainbow, Designing Women (Julia "The Terminator" Sugarbaker forever! rest in peace, Ms. Carter), I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, I Love Lucy, Dancing with the Stars (American version -- Derek Hough and Witney Carson are my favorite pros for their innovative, imaginative choreography and ability to bring out the best in their partners), Smash (mostly because it featured many familiar musical theatre faces :), Castle, Sherlock (BBC), Endeavour, Grantchester, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Mr. Selfridge, House of Cards (American version; I am currently watching To Play the King, although Bob's Burgers has taken precedence :), Law & Order: SVU (especially back when Stephanie March, Judith Light, Diane Neal, Christopher Meloni, Richard Belzer, and Dann Florek were still part of the cast :)

Favorite Theatre

Musicals/operettas: Hamilton, Waitress, American Psycho (Broadway and London; I am still hoping for an Original Broadway Cast Recording), She Loves Me (2016 revival), Fun Home, Pippin (2013 revival), Nice Work If You Can Get it, Dogfight (I don't know why I didn't "discover" Pasek and Paul sooner... something tells me I will be shattered by Dear Evan Hansen), Spring Awakening (although the plot is quite depressing, the music is addictive), The Light in the Piazza, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (I played Marcy Park in grad school :), Hairspray, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Last Five Years (although I also despise the plot, the music is just so addictive), Nine, Evita, A Little Night Music, A Chorus Line, Company, Fiddler on the Roof, Kismet, Gypsy, Candide, The King and I, West Side Story, The Sound of Music, Kiss Me, Kate, Oklahoma!, Anything Goes

Plays: The Humans, The Assembled Parties, Other Desert Cities, Noises Off, Twelfth Night

Operas: Le nozze di Figaro (it was the first opera I saw in February 2001 at the Met, and it was magical -- I wanted to be Angelika Kirschlager's Cherubino or the elegant, statuesque Countess of Melanie Diener), Die Zauberflöte, Serse (Nicholas Hytner production but in original Italian ~HGO's impeccable 2010 revival), La Calisto, Rigoletto, Der Rosenkavalier

Ballet: Apollo (I am grateful to have seen it live at NYCB in the Fall 2013 season's Stravinsky & Balanchine Hear the Dance: Russia, which included Monumentum pro Gesualdo, Movements for Piano and Orchestra, Duo Concertant, and Agon, after having studied these ballets in seminar), Swan Lake, anything by Justin Peck

shirleyinCA on May 25, 2017:

Thank you for the very delightful mail for Postcard Roulette Unassigned! I adore the Hello Kitty gold embossed card, the classy flow mini postcards and your creatively addressed and fun handmade envelope! Thanks for checking my profile likes and making a quite happy mail day for me and my postman!

Moeshell on May 23, 2017:

I love receiving mail from you. It is such a delight. Thank you for the lovely card. I didn't realize there was a theater version of Amelie. Bet that would have been a joy to see. (WIYM: Postcard Roulette unassigned.)

calmond on May 22, 2017:

Hello Avi! Thank you for the great vintage camera postcard with great vintage mail stamps that I received today from you as a surprise via the PC Roulette Swap! Very sweet of you to choose to send me a postcard! <3

TriniH on May 22, 2017:

Another great postcard! Isn't this on "Fireflies"? My husband cries at this movie. Tear jerker for sure! I haven't seen Big Fish in awhile, I'm adding it to my list to watch again! (Roulette swap, unassigned)

sherba31 on Apr 26, 2017:

Hello. I've sent 2 messages about the Free-Ad Bookmark Swap. Please let me know if it was received and rate. Thank you.

Mellipenpal on Mar 31, 2017:

What a surprise! Oh my god thank you for the Pompompurin RAK, I loveeeeee the washi samples so much!! They're beautiful! And the envelope is so cute! <3 Thanks again!! Have a great day :)

theevidenceisme on Mar 25, 2017:

Thank you for the postcard from the SBPC forum! I had planned on seeing hidden figures with a girlfriend, but it fell through. So, I still haven't seen it. Probably will have to get to it on DVD at this point. I did hear it was rather enjoyable. I actually haven't watched a movie in a while. I can't think of the last good one I saw to tell you that truth. Anywho, thanks again!

Soph on Mar 1, 2017:

What a surprise! Today I received your bonus card from "Postcard Roulette - Round 2" which you mailed in December 2016! Thank you so much for the lovely card, various beautiful Christmas stamps and your good wishes. All the best to you, too.

simcoe54 on Feb 24, 2017:

Thanks for all the lovely items for the Pom Pom Purin Mini-Giveaway. You made my mail day.
