My Postcrossing Profile
Updated August 4, 2020
I always wear a mask when I'm not at home. Because I respect others' needs to stay safe as well as to take care of myself. It's for the herd.
With an abundance of caution, we take the incoming mail out of our mailbox, dump it in a pile in the front hall, and wash our hands. We open it a couple of days later. See also this free article in The New York Times: You’ve Got Mail. Will You Get the Coronavirus? and this one in The Washington Post: "How Fauci, 5 other health specialists deal with covid-19 risks in their everyday lives."
Swap-bot doesn't use HTTPS for secure communications over the internet. Because my Swap-bot profile is public, visible to everyone on the internet, I'm deleting most everything. It's a bit like latching the barn door after the horse is gone, but friends who are security experts tell me every little bit helps.
I'll leave a little information for swaps and wishes. For starters, my kitchen is my craft room. If you're a member of Postcrossing, you can see my Postcrossing profile for more information. Send me a pm if you want to know more about my preferences.
The upside is that my profile is a quick read!
I swap for blank postcards in envelopes and written, naked postcards. I send the blank postcards I receive to family and friends and people on Postcrossing; I set them aside so I won't send them for Swap-bot swaps. I don't mind gently bent corners; I lop them off with a corner rounder. Please send nice postcards that you'd happily send your family and friends.
If you're sending me naked postcard, please send one that's a favorite of yours, sender's choice or for a swap with a theme.
No thank you: Postcards to color, postcards for Christian holidays and legends, and Zazzle postcards won't get hearts from me. Most others will. I have many Pomegranate postcards because I buy their remaindered postcard books at Half Price Books for $3.
My favorite kawaii has a face. I love food with faces and anchovies with legs and animals in an unlikely milieu like cat servers at faux Starbucks.
I enjoy most characters, especially San-X. My favorite characters at the moment are Corocoro Coronya, gudetama lazy (or depressed or fatigued?) egg yolk, Kogepan Burnt Bread, and pastel Sentimental Circus.
I'm looking for kawaii books with faces. And puffins. How could all the kawaii artists have never thought to draw puffins?
I'm bingeing on Louise Penny's mysteries featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. I discovered our library has all the audio books and enjoy listening to them while I'm weeding the garden. My next book club book is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. The one after that is Nemesis by Philip Roth, a novel about the polio epidemic.
