About Me

I'm a thirty-something Army wife, married 13 years, "in the Army" for 6 of those. It's been an interesting experience following my husband around the country as he serves.

I'm "fur-mom" to one little fuzz of 17. (!) She is still quite a spitfire, even in her golden years - I provide the cat food and catnipmouse, and she continues to tolerate me.

I am a distance-ed graduate student in library science, and am looking forward to becoming a librarian.

I love photography, scrapbooking, crocheting, and books, and I play far too much World of Warcraft: Horde-side on Runetotem, for those reading this who play too much World of Warcraft too.

Visually, I'm drawn to clean lines and geometrical patterns. I never met a color I didn't like, but am particularly drawn to greens, blues and purples.

To my swap partners: I am horribly allergic to chamomile, even though I love tea. If you're in a tea swap with me, please let me know whether or not what you send me has chamomile, so that I can share it with my husband if necessary. Thanks! :)

Favorite Diversions

Music: I like most anything except country and rap (and even then, there are exceptions). Favorites: Sting, Franz Ferdinand, U2, Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban.

Books: The Harry Potter series, the Mageworlds series, anything by Austen or Shakespeare, Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, The Red Book.

Generally: science fiction, and well-written biographies of interesting characters from history.

Television: I don't watch much television, but I do love most science fiction shows - Torchwood, Doctor Who, Stargate: Universe. I'm a bit of a BBC nut, and grew up on watching Are You Being Served? with my mum.


Likes

  • yarn. LOVE yarn. Always welcoming opportunities to grow my stash to an even more ridiculous size. Any colors, any fibers, if I can crochet something with it I WILL find something to crochet with it.
  • Asian-themed items
  • starry/celestial/astronomy themed items
  • ANYTHING purple
  • patriotic scrapbooking papers and embellishments
  • I have an unholy love of office supplies: post it notes, pens and pencils, funky paperclips and push pins, etc.
  • I also have an unholy love of Dunkin Donuts. Their coffee is my number-one must, and their hash browns are the best available.
  • Handwritten notes. This is fast becoming a lost art, and it makes me a little sad.
  • Recipes! Especially tried-and-true crockpot recipes, but I love to learn new ways of making food, crockpot or not.
  • Cat themed items for scrapbooking, or new toys for She Who Must Be Fed
  • Willow Tree figurines
  • Alabama football. Roll Tide!

Dislikes

  • Items of a religious nature
  • Bugs/spiders/bees

Comment: Thanks for the fun winter packages...the last was late but all the others were mailed early so I still gave a 5...I do want to tell you to label your swap packages better...the last one came with no name due to it had been written on the packing tape and had rubbed off...the inside of the package had no note or no indication that it was even a swap-bot package. The only part of the return address was the city and state so I did some digging and found one of your other envelopes to verify it was from you...it was a mystery for a few days though :) All that said...thanks again..enjoyed the swap!!! Merry Christmas!!

Comment: Thanks for the pretty card!! (Don't forget the swap name - it took me a bit to find which swap this was for!)
Response: Yes, I realized the moment I heard the postcard hit the bottom of the mailbox that I'd probably forgotten to put the swap name on there. I usually remember. Sorry.
