About Me


I AM LOOKING FOR ANY AND ALL INFO, MAPS, PC'S, MENUS, ETC from STONY ISLAND, NY. I prefer things from the early '80's. I would take things from anywhere near here as well. There is an employee retreat for Phillip Oil (Conoco Oil) located on the island......my father worked there and I would love mementos of ALL KINDS.

I was born in Elmira, NY and have lived in many other locales. My parents brought me here to the flat, low-populated, and potentially deadly freezing state of North Dakota.

One of my 6 boys, Bailey, has crossed the rainbow bridge as of Dec. 20, 2015.

So now I am ruled by 5 cats who allow me very little "free" time to create. They are the of THE sweetest and friendliest felines...all male.

Cheeto is currently 15 (March 2000)....

Ocho is 14 (June 2001)....

Neko is 3 (March 2012)....

Dozer and (Baby) Bowser are 3 (Sept 2012)

Favorite Books

Normally, I read quite a lot. Though there are times where I have difficulty either starting or finishing a book even ones I have been waiting to read

Some authors I enjoy are: Juliet Blackwell ( 2 series), Mary Stanton (1 series), Jaye Wells (1 series), Lilith Saintcrow (1 series), Rogue Angel Series, HP Mallory, Ann Charles

I also like many mystery series...

DO NOT READ: Romance, Science-Fiction

Favorite Television

I do not have cable however I watch tons of stuff on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, Paranormal State, Ghost Hunters, Hot in Cleveland, Big Bang Theory, Survivor, Duck Dynasty, Downton Abbey, Ripper Street, Copper, Longmire, and Justified .......to name a few.

Also older series Barney Miller, Quincy, Rockford Files, Murder She Wrote, Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere, and more

BBC many

Favorite Movies

I do not consider myself a movie buff at all. I like comedies, horror, thrillers, and some action.

I do not like slap-stick or stupid comedies. Though oddly my favorite comedy is The Wedding Singer.

I rarely like American horror films. Some of my favorites directors are Italian: Fulci, Argento, and Bava.

Favorite Crafts

I am not really a crafty person. However, I love to create. I make/swap ATC's, scrapbook. I have done some collage arts including making a themed mirror for a gift

would like to try zines and zentangles-cannot find decent tutorials so far

**Could Do Without**..

Holidays....they are, for one overly commercialized......and I do not really get into many

Religion.....I enjoy learning about ALL religions (and cultures) however refrain from sending religious items/scenes/scriptures/etc---unless the swap calls for it

Please DO NOT send:

Tea or other drinks as I do not drink/use them

Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful envelopes. You did such an outstanding job making them! Apparently Sweet Home got it's name by a couple of settlers who woke up one glorious morning and exclaimed, "Oh, what a home, sweet home." Best wishes.

Megbomb rated for November Reading Challenge on Jan 2, 2017
Comment: Update- 1/2/17 I finally received the package over the holidays. Upgrading the rating to a 3 because it was sent weeks late. I read the two messages telling me about how you sent, but that doesn't change the fact that everything was sent and received weeks late with little communication so therefore doesn't change the 3 rating. 12/15/16I received a message on the last day of the swap to let me know that she had not had a chance to shop yet but would send out by the end of the week (which to be clear, would mean the swap was being sent about 5 days late). I responded and said thank you for letting me know and to please keep me posted. I have not heard anything else and have not received anything. This is quite disappointing as I really put a lot of effort and went over and beyond with my swap.
Response: I sent a couple messages that have not been read as of today. Thank you for chnaging the rating
