About Me

My day job is code monkey, but my favorite hobbies are low-tech.
I love postcards! Six-year-old me would be so. proud. of my collection. Sometimes when I need to feel quiet and calm I sort my postcards into different subcollections based on theme.
I crochet off and on and I've been at it again lately, working on a bunch of Star Wars amigurumi. I tried knitting but it was wayyyy too difficult for me. At least with crochet it's easy to rip out my mistakes.
Mail in my town can be really stupid. My neighbors and I often have to redeliver to each other. I got tax documents for two other houses this year, and one night I had someone's medication who lived three blocks away! O_O;;;;; We complain to the post office but nothing ever happens. So, if you feel like it's taking too long for me to receive your swap, please let me know. I try to rate in the evenings after dinner most nights, and I do a Saturday afternoon catchup at the very latest.

Favorite Books

I'd like to write something that makes me look smart, but the truth is that I'm working my way through all the Star Wars new canon novels and graphic novels.

Favorite manga: Space Brothers, Attack on Titan, Saturn Apartments, Hetalia, Neko Rahmen, Ojisama to Neko

Favorite Television

Game of Thrones, The Blacklist, The Walking Dead, The X-Files, Firefly, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Into the Badlands, My Cat From Hell.

I also like anime, although I don't watch as often as I'd like. My favorites are Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Uchuu Kyoudai, Attack on Titan, and Panty & Stocking.

Comment: Thank you for the nice swap! I enjoyed your note!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard and your list. I'm glad I only had one partner you did not put your name on it.
Response: Ack sorry! I wasn't sure whether I had, so I thought I sent you a message about it with a description of the card, but I must have told myself to send a message when I didn't have a note-taking device near me. *facepalm* i think need one of those notebook necklaces istg.
Comment: Thank you for the post card. Guess I need to get out and look at the stars more often. Glad to hear the you quiche turned out okay and you enjoyed it.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard neighbor! A good place to see the Milky Way is Florissant Fossil Beds. I work at the North Pole which is a cool place to visit if you like Christmas, have kids, or are a child at heart.

FemShep is the BEST rolemodel ever. EVER. I mean, in the Crucible at the end, she hears Hackett and it's all "What do you need me to do?" I mean, she's already done everything! cough Anyway, yeah, who wouldn't want to be FemShep? I think even my husband would want to be FemShep. Hence why my next tattoo is going to be the N7. Also, looking at your profile, I think we might be kindred spirits.
