I like all things antiquated, being nostalgic, and living vicariously through strangers and fictional characters. I hate mushrooms, my height, and when my thread gets tangled into knots during binding projects. I also spend a lot of time wishing blanket forts were practical. I want to get to know each and every one of you, so don't hesitate to send me a message.
Plain and simply put - I am a teen librarian, bookbinder, and not as funny as I think I am.
Beirut, Tender Forever, Bon Iver, Belle & Sebastian, Okkervil River, The Decemberists, St Vincent, The Weakerthans, Tilly and the Wall. Basically anything acoustic, literate, or twee.
Anything Young Adult
Project Runway/Catwalk, No Reservations, Amazing Race, and I'm a huge sucker for terrible reality television
Book arts, collage
I love foreign currency and that is the main thing I collect right now. Whenever I go out of the country I make sure to save a few notes and coins and I bother all my friends who go on trips to bring me back a few coins.
Maps: city and transit maps. I love subway maps.
I love anything fruit flavored or sour (and this lovely chocolate bar filled with pistachio cream I had in Prague). I wish paprika flavored chips were available in the US (along with lemon fanta and lemonaid+).
When it comes to tea, I prefer black tea, and anything that is cinnamon / spiced.
I don't have any food allergies.
