About Me

I'm pretty much a workaholic. That and kendo practice (Japanese fencing) keep me busy. I love swapping because it helps me to slow down and because the connections make the world feel smaller and nicer.

Please forgive any "is it there yet? is it there yet?" messages. I get so excited to send people stuff, but sometimes turning it over to the postal service feels like putting a message in a bottle! :P

Thank You, but I'd Rather Not

Although I'm thankful for everything I receive, I would pass these items on to someone who would enjoy them more: * scents
* tea
* fish/marine life (cartoony is OK, but anything more realistic than Finding Nemo gives me the creeps)
* religious items (although I respect others' practices, I myself am a committed skeptic)
* ribbon
* friendship books

Postcards

I've always enjoyed touristy postcards, it's so much fun to see where people have been. I also love weird/funny/strange/inappropriate postcards. (I have a notoriously bawdy sense of humor, so don't worry about offending me!)

States I'm looking for:
* Arkansas
* Connecticut
* Delaware
* Indiana
* Louisiana
* Maryland
* Massachusetts
* Missouri
* Nevada
* New Jersey
* South Dakota
* Utah

Comment: Thank you for the cards. The native art is really nice. I will look up the artist soon to learn more about her. It is nice that you are able to get a grab bag at the market. I would enjoy the surprise of a good find :O)

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.
