About Me

I am 42 and am a fan of music, writing, reading, dance and history. Currently I write journals and am working on a fantasy novel. I own an Edwardian era home that I am remodeling and enjoy home decor. I am a musician and write songs. I have 3 cats and love animals in general, especially birds.

I also like fitness and yoga for relaxation

Christmas and Valentine's Day are my favorite holidays. Lemon, Fruit punch and sour cherry are favorite flavors.

I am currently interested in Geology and gemology - love learning about it. I am also getting more into gardening and appreciate flower themed swaps.

Favorite Music

All kinds. From any country including my home here in the U.S

Here's a handful from my collection: Blondie, David Bowie, Brandy, D'vorak, Bukka White, Bob Seger, Jay Z, Prince, The Monkees, Shaggy, Blind Faith, Jack Radics, Dwight Yoakam, The Doors, Destiny's Child, Lee Brice, Jason Derulo, JD McPherson, Turbulence, The Levellers, Starlight Mints, Bill Callahan, Cab Calloway, Silk, Missy Elliot, Gary Allan, Joan Armatrading, Sade, The Smithereens, The Pentangle

I have a large cd collection, a moderate vinyl collection and a growing online collection. I love Itunes and lovelovelove Bollywood music!

Favorite Movies

Disney's Alice in Wonderland, In the heat of the night, After Hours, The color purple, Who's that knocking on my door, Hair, Performance, Any Lum movie, The Last Unicorn, Lolita, Lady Jane, Smooth Talk, Scarecrow, Patch of Blue, Grand Hotel, Harold and Maude, Greed

I am not a big Horror Movie fan but some I like are Let the right one in, Halloween, It came without warning, The Shining

Sidney Poitier is my favorite actor. Shah Rukh Khan is my favorite Bollywood actor. It's difficult to pick a favorite actress - I like Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Merle Oberon and Patty Duke to name a few.

Favorite Television

Currently I watch Motive, lots of Bravo! shows, Judge Judy and Dr. Drew, Vikings, Game of Thrones, The Nightly Show, Hoarders, The Muppets, Biggest Loser and Broad City

All time favorites of the past would be WKRP, The Patty Duke Show, The Office, Cinematech, Starting Over, Rome, The Avengers and The Monkees

I love anime and some of my favorites are/were Revolutionary Girl Utena, Maison Ikkoku, Black Butler, RahXephon, Angel Links and Lum

As a child favorite shows were The Incredible Hulk, Silly symphony cartoons from Disney, Family Ties, Felix the cat, Heckyll and Jeckyll, The Muppets, Good Times, tons of Mtv and Remington Steele

Favorite Crafts

Beaded jewelry

Art journals

cd mixes





About soap

I really have sensitive skin and unless it's rose or lily of the valley scented, please do not send any kind of bath gel or bubble bath. Only bar soap or products specifically made for sensitive skin. I love natural soaps so oatmeal and goat milk soaps are my favorite. Also no bath beads/confetti please.

Wishlist items

Fountain/roller ball pens

Assam tea (bagged or loose)

Blank books

A word about beads.....

Yes you can send me beads!! I will try to keep this section updated on my current needs.

Clasps of the toggle variety would be greatly appreciated. I do enjoy jade lately, so any beads of that variety. Please, no briolette beads.

Favorite Books

Paul Zindel was the first author I really enjoyed, I have all of his books. Lewis Carroll is also another favorite. Robert Holdstock is a favorite fantasy writer. I enjoy classic literature and history books the most, but anything well written will get my interest. I like manga and graphic novels and some comics. Los Hernandez Bros. are my favorite comic creators.

I also love comics with female leads and collect them.

So I'll be back to amend the rating after yea :) Blessed Christmas! UPDATE: Thanks for the awesome gifts! They were perfect!! :D Especially loved the makeup brush & recipe cards! :)
Comment: Thanks for the really nice package! :) Too bad it seems that someone had dropped the package (one of the corners was ''smashed'') so the other coffee cup was broken. :(
Response: Oh no :( Hope everything else is ok!

Nastasi rated for Daily Find Journal on May 4, 2012
Comment: For some reason, I marked this as received and gave you a rating (mixed it up with a different swap). OOPS!! I actually just got your box TODAY, in fact and Oh...My...Goodness...... You deserve a hundred hearts for this thing. You went WAAAY above and beyond what the swap called for. I love everything that you picked out. Probably the best package I've ever received in the mail. Thank you SO MUCH <3 <3 <3!!
PJ rated for letters and beads on May 3, 2012
Comment: Thank you so much ... I'm a bit late in rating, but have received both the original swap AND the additional items we agreed on. I'm sure my sister is going to love the bracelets (have to hold onto them until June!) and I'm once again faced with the difficult decision about whether to keep the necklace for myself or give it to my mother for *her* birthday, which is also in June. Thank you for another great swap!

Hey Freedom, I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

Hi there! Thank you so very much for the "Diabolo" manga books. I received them earlier today; I can't wait to read them. Thanks for thinking of me. Please let me know if you would like be pen pals or swap different things in the future. If so, I'm definitely up for making new friends. I checked out your cooking site - looks quite fascinating. Maybe we could trade recipes in the future? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks again for reaching out, I truly appreciate it!

Respectfully, Linsey A. Daman
