UPDATE: I am currently working on trying to get out all of the swaps that I have that are past due. After getting most of them ready with just a bit of shopping left to do, I had to have emergency surgery because of a massive infection throughout my lower jaw bone. I'm still in a large amount of pain, and have been unable to finish my shopping or go to the post office, as I cannot drive while taking the medications that I am on for the pain. I do fully intent do complete all of the swaps that I have signed up for. I have dropped all of the swaps that did not have partners assigned yet, and will not be signing up for anything new until those that I have to send out are sent. I hope everyone can understand this.
FURTHER UPDATE - 11/3/2008 I thought I was getting better when my infection came back stronger, involving the other side of my jaw as well. I'm back on tons of antibiotics and a constant stream of narcotic painkillers. I'm scheduled for surgery again at the end of the week.
Hmm...what's there to say about me? I work at an outdoor education facility where I'm the assistant director. I take care of all of our animals (owls, a hawk, an iguana, snakes, turtles, etc.) as part of my job. I love all things that have to do with the outdoors, boating, swimming, camping, hiking, etc.
I tend to like pretty much anything, I listen to most radio stations, but not anything really loud or hard. My favorite artist right now is Matt Nathanson.
I like to read non-fiction outdoor adventure books, as well as mysteries. I also love any educational book about nature or science.
I don't really like to watch movies - my attention span is too short, but my favorite movie is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - the original version.
Anything educational, I like the history channel, cooking shows, science shows, but I also enjoy Grey's Anatomy and The Office.
I spend most of my crafting time crocheting, but I also like collage, pressing leaves/flowers, beading, and trying new things.
I guess my allergies could potentially be relevant. I'm allergic to:
Note: Most of these allergies are to things that I would eat/put on my face. If it is something that doesn't go there, the only things that absolutely must be avoided are apples and hemp...those things make me die, and I kind of like being alive.
The basic plants, grass, trees, mold, and then some other weird ones: Hemp, Jute, Dust, Bell Peppers, Apples, Pears, Nectarines, Peaches, Lettuce, Cucumbers, Floral Fragrances
These things give me asthma - smoke, perfume, incense
Other random things I like:
Anything with owls
Craft/Crochet Pattern Books
The color blue
and CHEESE...I love cheese.
I wouldn't call me picky, more just particular. Don't fret too much, if you send me something that I can't use, I'll just find someone to pass it along to. There are however, a few things that most people like that I don't. I'm weird like that.
I don't like:
Chocolate bars - I like candy that only has a little bit of chocolate, like peanut butter m&ms or snicker bars, but other than that, I really don't like the taste or smell of chocolate.
Caffeine - This means no coffee or teas with caffeine. I have a heart condition, and caffeine makes my heart beat irregularly, and you know, I've heard that your heart is pretty important to your continued existence, so...
Cookies - I just don't like them. I don't know why, I'm strange, ok?
Chewing gum - I have TMJ, and that just ends in pain and badness.
Scrapbooking things besides stickers - I love love love stickers, but I don't scrapbook besides that, and don't really have any use for other things.
