About Me

** I have the horrible habit of procrastination. I also work full-time, so sometimes it is difficult for me to get to the post office when they are open. I may send your package a little late, but I will send it. **

I am vegan and I love being creative in any form. I love reading and music. I'm currently learning how to play the violin! And I'm just starting to explore buddhism.

Favorite Music

I enjoy a broad spectrum of music. The Mountain Goats, Ethel, Arcade Fire, Cat Power, The Smiths, Crass, Bon Iver, Kaki King, Neutral Milk Hotel, Klezmer, Radiohead, Joanna Newsom, Spoon, Johnny Cash, Tom Leher, Neko Case, Bob Rozman...The list goes on, but you get the idea.

Favorite Movies

I am a Netflix fiend!

Amelie, Into The Wild, Spirited Away, Shaun of the Dead, The Parrots of Telegraph Hill, Andy Goldsworthy: Rivers and Tides, Wholphin quarterly from McSweeney's, Harvie Krumpet, Fido, Phantom Tollbooth, etc.

Favorite Television

I try not to watch too much TV, but PBS is always a good choice.

Favorite Crafts

ATCs and paper crafts mostly, although I long to paint and sew.

Favorite Books

Anything by Dave Eggers: 'What is the What' is heartbreaking. Vonnegut, Marjane Satrapi, Pynchon, Mark Haddon, Johnathan Safran Foer are some of my favorites. I got a subscription to both Mc Sweeney's and the Believer for my birthday and I love them! Best American Norequired Reading is one of my perenial favorites.

I like...


bold colors, natural colors, love green and blue and rich browns and reds;

I'm not very fond of pastels or the color pink


birds, words, quotes, music, vintage, books, nature, poppies, veggies, tofu, anything vegan, zombies, robots, monsters, dinosaurs, religious icons, grammar and punctuation


vegan, organic, AVOCADO!, broccoli, tofu, potatoes, dark chocolate, Mambas, coffee, tea, beer, wine, chai tea, Indian curries, naan bread, Thai curries, rice noodles, rice, quinoa, cupcakes, pumpkin bread, zucchini bread

I don't really like...

kawaii, meat, new punk culture, pop music, mainstream country music, Celine Dion, Disney, commercials, John Grisham, new wave Christianity, Mitt Romney or Rudy Giulianni Hey, just being honest!


Comment: I will gladly change this if I get anything.
Comment: boy I'm sick of getting flaked on.
Comment: It has been a month since you marked your swap as 'sent.' I have given you the benefit of the doubt in that last month, but I can't help but feel flaked on. I also sent you 2 messages, and you haven't responded. I know it says in your profile that you "procrastinate," but you also don't "communicate." I'm bored with being flaked on.

This is a great swap idea, thanks for hosting it. I've got my friends on the beer drinking - they're happy to help - so I should have lots of great swapping material.
