I have always loved mail (sending and receiving), but I've only recently found all the amazing ways online to connect with other mail lovers.
I'm a member of:
The Letter Writers Alliance
League of Extraordinary Penpals
Order of the Envelope
The Postal Society
I have also participated in The Month of Letters and The Elevated Envelope.
I'm fairly new to swap bot, but I'm getting my feet wet with a few swaps. Yay for mail!
I am happy with whatever you decide to send me in a swap. Part of the fun for me is getting an idea of who you are through what you send. If you want to read more about me below, though, feel free!
I have a wide taste in music and LOVE finding and sharing new music with people.
Some of my all-time favorite bands are: The Beatles, Radiohead, XTC, Guster, Fatboy Slim...
Newer favorites are Imagine Dragons and Benjamin Dunn & the Animal Orchestra.
Beyond those, though, I like indie music, some rap/hip hop, electronic. As I said, I have a pretty wide range of tastes. Tell me about your favorite music!
All time favorite authors: C.S. Lewis, Elisabeth Elliot, Jane Austen, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (the Sherlock Holmes stories), other classics (Little Women)
Been reading recently: Trying to work my way through all the Jane Austen books! I've read Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, Sanditon and am currently reading Sense & Sensibility.
I love movies in general and probably have too many to name here. 12 Monkeys is my all time favorite. I also like movies with twists or that make you think (Fight Club, Fallen, Usual Suspects), comedies, girl movies (i.e. Troop Beverly Hills, Clueless), etc. I like new movie recommendations.
Gilmore girls, My So-Called Life, Alias, Veronica Mars
The Amazing Race, Psych, Burn Notice, Top Gear, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Project Runway, Face Off
Spy stuff/espionage/secret codes
British things (If you have Doctor Who, Jane Austen, British Fashion or even Roald Dahl stamps, you would make my day!)
