I love Morrissey! my life goal is to watch the man in concert and to meet him. only then will i be able to die happy.

i love Syrian Hamsters! XD i like making crafts, random baking (but i'm not any good), listening to people talk, enjoying good food and good company, watching tons of tv series', being with my twin, bjds, photography, reading magazines, listening to heavy music, going for gigs, looking for old things at flea markets, visiting thrift stores, keeping memories and keepsakes, traveling, doctor who, playing around with photoshop and illustrator and just hanging out with my friends.

and i also love the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s (way more than now.. ) and i enjoy learning about their subcultures as well.

[a note about my ratings 15/01/10 i didn't mean to flake on any of the swaps. i do apologise for any inconvenience i've caused. Everything fell apart for me at that point of time, my friends abandoned me and i really didn't have the time to do anything other than work and family. BUT! now i'm back. and i don't want to make the same mistakes, so i will try to do my best to send the swaps out on time, i'll understand if you want to ban me from a swap but please let me know why. thanks! i hope we'll all have a great time on swapbot!]

Rating/Sending Policy

I will always try to send out my swaps on time but in the unlikely event that i do not/am not able to send out my swap in time, i will send you a msg. i am sending the packages from singapore and we have very strict customs so it usually takes about 2 weeks to reach the U.S.

if you do not receive a package from me, it is most likely still travelling, please msg/email me before rating! i will rate everyone as soon as possible which is usually in 1 or 2 days of recieving the swap items. if you do not get a rating from me after a very long time, please msg me so that i can rate you again.

if there is anything at all, please feel free to msg me and i will definitely try to reply you a.s.a.p! i promise i don't bite!

mommaviv on Sep 21, 2010:

Hi Marlz,
Just went through your list for the make love no war swap. Your list was great! Ironically We both had the same first song. Checking your profile we have loads in common perhaps that means we will be "seeing" each other in other swaps. I have my fingers crossed for a Torchwood swap.

Jbenn on Sep 19, 2010:

I'm your 60's bands -- mamas & papas partner -- Jbenn & I forgot to: Thank you 'sew' much for the retro needles. They remind me of the pack my Grandma gave me!

DeniseN10ec on Sep 19, 2010:

Hello, You had just rated me on a swap and I came here to read your profile. The 1st thing that struck me was that you live in Singapore. A very good friend of mine for years lives in Singapore and I just mentioned Swap Bot to her and she was afraid there would not be enough for her to join. I hope you don't mind but I would like to send her the link to your profile.

I do understand the shipping from or to Singapore. I think 2 weeks is great because I have seen packages take up to 4 weeks to arrive or get here (USA) and we have had a couple packages get lost. Seems like the larger the package the longer it takes.

2 thumbs up for being Hippie at heart. I have a friend who is Hippie if I have ever seen one. I love her to death and her style.

Really enjoyed reading your profile and maybe we will be paired up again for a swap.

melodia on Sep 18, 2010:

Hello Marilyn! :)

I'm Ezgi from Turkey.I suppose you had given a break to swapping,so welcome back! :) I see there are quite a few bands we both like such as Linkin Park,Green Day,Red Hot Chili Peppers,Pink Floyd,Travis and Nightwish.Do you like Tarja or Anette? xD I'm a big Tarja fan :D I haven't seen most of the movies in your list but I've recently watched The Breakfast Club.One of my friends is like the biggest fan of the band Travis and I believe she learnt the lead vocalist Fran Healy said that movie was one that describes what it was like in his childhood.So we watched it :D It was quite an interesting movie.I sometimes watch Doctor Who,like today.People who write the scenario are so imaginative,aren't they?The monster in the episode I've seen today was so disgusting though :P

It's nice to hear you're so into crafts! I wish I were a try-every-craft-once kinda crafter as well haha xD but I totally suck at these stuff.Anyway,it was nice writing you.And this was for "read and comment on your parther's profile" swap ;) Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

Take care!

Ezgi

darcilena on Sep 17, 2010:

From Darcilena: Swap ~ Read and Comment on your partners profile! Wow! That is a one "great" profile! Mine is too long ,I think, but at least I have ideas coming out everywhere! LOl! It's really hard to send a great swap when people don't write a detailed profile. I think I've been back 3 times to add stuff otheres have reminded me of! So what is tartan?, is that a pattern or a color? I also do not like the 2 pc ATC's or just getting 1 item in the mail. You mine as well fill to the accepted grams, I say!..... what's the point of doing a swap when it took you less than 3 minutes to cut the C/St and paste a sticker! Some of mine take hours and I know the receiver is bound to like something on it. I just got 3 w/c painted ATC's of Bermuda and I was so "over-joyed" with the time and effort she made! You sound very crafty and artistically ambitious. I want to find someone who makes fabric mini dolls...but not Dotee ones, the ones I've seen look a little scary and I'm into the more prettier type dolls! LOL! Funny tho, I really thought the movie Coraline was intriging but I generally would never watch a movie like that. I'm going to lightly tape Big Buttons on my little Emily and have her dress like Coraline. It will be the cutest Scrapbook page ever! Speaking of Johnny Depp, it seems like almost every profile on here loves that guy. I went to Bermuda to see my brother and I was on the Ferry boat sitting only 2 spots away from where Johnny and his whole family were sitting only 24 hours earlier!! Ahhhh! I was so miffed! I would have just loved a picture (preferrably with him!) I guess he quite enjoys the little Island and visits there often. He's the only guy I know that actually owns his own island! But my brother moved back to Canada so I doubt I'll be going there again! So close yet so far!!! Thanx for the Fun read and all the Very Best on swap bot! I have an "Around the World shelf if you ever want to send me a softie doll or other small treasure from your counrty. Have a mini Komono I could frame?? w/s Darc

mirabean on Sep 17, 2010:

Read and Comment on your partner's profile ! - swap

Hey! It was nice to read your profile, I found so many things that we relate! Lists are awesome (and you did your lists very well XD) so I'm gonna list some great hilights from your lists...

All the cartoons!, softies, ATCs, tea tea and tea, noodles, the Beatles, Spice girls, Donnie Darko, Amelie, Fight Club, Trainspotting, Little Miss Sunshine, James Franco, Adrien Brody, HUGH JACKMAN, Robert Downey Jr, Draco/Harry ship <3<3, Sirius... There was something more, but those are what kicked ass!

Oh, I have a drug-themed movie for you! Just watched a finnish movie "Reindeer Spotting – Escape from Santaland". It may sound funny parody of Trainspotting, but it's really.... Disturbing. Things are 100% real happening in this film, the "hero" of the film found dead just few months back in Kambodza. But if you find it somewhere with subtitles, you should check it out! I had another drug-movie in my mind but just forget it's name...

Anyway, have a happy swapping and hang in there ! Hope you got some friends to turst on <3

Best wishes,
Mira-Pauliina

PreciousPunk on Sep 17, 2010:

Read and Comment on Your Partner's Profile! Swap From: Natalie a.k.a. PreciousPunk I really enjoyed ready your profile! It sounds like we have a lot in common and I am also a hippie at heart! Incubus was one of the best concerts I've been to and I loved Hedwig and the Angry Inch. I had to look up what a Syrian Hamster was and discovered I had one for many years when I was little named Prince. He traveled all around with me and my family in the camper! Thank you for sharing so much about your self!

mum2boys82 on Sep 16, 2010:

Hiya, this is my comment related to the swap 'Read and comment on your parner's profile'...I'm new to this so I hope this all makes sense! I really enjoyed reading through your profile you have included so much I feel like almost know you already! I see we share a love of baking (however, I am not very good but do enjoy what ever I make!), we also share a few bands/artists such as Green Day and Red Hot Chilli Peppers! I also craft but am quite new to it and am also happy to try anything once, I'd love to learn to do origami but I don't have the patience and really need someone sat next to me to show me how to do something! It sounds like you have had great fun using swap bot and I hope to be in another swap with you at some point! Rebecca Xx
