About Me

I'm almost 40 years old and live on a small farm in western Massachusetts. I've lived here all my life. Rural life isn't very exciting, but it has its consolations for an old curmudgeon. I have two male cats, Ludwig and Mini. I work out of my home as a virtual assistant. As much as I like the computer, sitting in front of it for most of the day gets tedious.

Hobbies

BOARDGAMES: I love playing boardgames, but don't often get the chance to play. So I wind up playing a lot of Scrabble on Facebook. (If you're looking for games, look me up.)

READING: For fiction, a little of this, a little of that - fantasy, SF, horror once in a while, historical fiction, a few YA titles, the odd mystery. Favorites include George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire (and most of what Martin writes), John Mortimer's Rumpole series, Kurt Vonnegut, P. G. Wodehouse. For nonfiction, mostly historical and biographical stuff (especially related to Tudor, Renaissance, American colonial and revolutionary history, plus culinary, scientific, and medical history), but I'll read anything that looks interesting. Some favorites are The Knife Man by Wendy Moore, Bill Bryson, Paul Fussell.

COOKING AND BAKING: I spend a lot of time trolling FoodGawker for tasty things to make. But to be honest, I don't like the cooking part so much as devouring the results!

ASTRONOMY: I just got a telescope, after wanting one for years. But since I don't even know enough to be considered a novice, I feel stupid listing it here.

TRAVEL: Especially anywhere that involves museums and historical sites.

Likes and Dislikes

LIKES: The color orange. Tigers, rhinos, ocean life.

DISLIKES: Anything girly, cutesy, or country. Anything religious.

Comment: Thank you for the nice poem. I love how you made the envelope! That is so cool. I’ve never seen that before. And the little swap bot business card is such a cute idea I immediately went to zazzle to order me some.

Comment: Thank you for the unfunny card. At first I didn’t Get it, but after looking at it like 10 times it actually made me giggle. The storage containers hanging each had a special garment in it except for the last one that actually has Richard himself in it! I’m guessing he is dead.

Comment: Thanks for the great portrait of Einstein. I'd never seen that engraving. Love that you had the Einstein stamp to go with it. Unfortunately the #@*% USPS meanies slashed through the stamps with their vicious black marker. (one of my pet peeves.) Hadn't heard of Driving Mr. Albert, but it sounds like a book right up my alley. Heading right over to my library's website... Thanks.

Thanks for the angel waterfall PC. I love it! Are Niagara falls really so loud that you could hear it from miles away?

I saw a comment of yours on one of the "word" PC swaps - I should have gotten you as a partner! I have a ton of brain pictures in my stash. They are in the huge "other" pile though and not in an easy to find place! Happy creating.

PukeFacedFreak on Dec 17, 2013:

Would love to see something on your profile that lets me know what sort of swaps you plan to participate in here on SB, crafts you do or would like to try.

Board games, Rumpole and PG Wodehouse! Too bad we're a continent away from each other. You're my partner for Winter Solstice PC Swap - what fun...

AZmom875 on Nov 29, 2013:
