About Me

I live in NJ with my husband and 2 cats, and have a stepson in college down south. I'm an ecommerce copywriter and a singer-songwriter playing locally. I love ALL animals, especially kitties as you can see from my username, but will work hard to keep cat hair out of everything!! I have always loved drawing and making homemade cards and the like but am now branching into other things…

Favorite Music

Music is pretty much my favorite thing on earth. I am a huge country music fan, especially of female artists. Miranda Lambert is my favorite. I also love classical music, classic rock, indie pop, and folk.

Favorite Books

Love, Nina and Man at the Helm by Nina Stibbe; Bridget Jones' Diary by Helen Fielding; The Country Life by Rachel Cusk (another hilarious British book); I'm With The Band by Pamela Des Barres (story of a groupie in the 70s, and it's a very LA book…I grew up there and miss it a bit); anything by Lorrie Moore (my favorite writer, hands down), Self Help & Like Life being my two favorites; anything by Elinor Lipman (funny, smart romances); the Iowa Marilynne Robinson books (Gilead, Home, Lila); Patti Smith's Just Kids and M Train.

Favorite Movies

Nashville (1975), Romance on the High Seas (1948), I'm Not There (2007), Begin Again (2014), Roman Holiday (1953), The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (2004), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Lost in Translation (2003)

Favorite Television

Nashville (it's my favorite movie and my fave TV show); Orange is the New Black; 30 Rock; the IT Crowd (I love Moss!!); Dr. Who. My fave TV show EVER is China Beach, a drama about a nurse in the Viet Nam war, which was on in the 90s. I've watched a decent amount of anime with my stepson who is really into it.

Favorite stuff in general

Colors I love are pink in all its forms, ditto blue, and anything floral, especially mod oversized 60s florals. I adore any and all animals, especially CATS. I love anything having to do with music, as well as books and reading. I also love movies, and fashion, and anything at all that's vintage, especially old books and magazines. I love food and cooking (adore my slow cooker). Since I love to travel I also like travel-related stuff, like old maps. Favorite cites are London, Paris, and Amsterdam. I want to go to Japan and Hawaii but have never been...

Comment: Spinach poetry and hair entanglement always win a heart. Such metaphors for life are dear to my withered heart and give wings for my tormented soul. Glad I wrote that down somewhere for my dear friends to ponder.

Comment: Sweet kitty. I used to have a cat that looked just like that. Her name was Bunny and one day she just up and moved in with the neighbors across the street. Of course that was after she left me with four kittens: one I found a home for and three that became my babies. Some mom, huh? Thanks for the great card and the memories it brought back!

Comment: I missed your email at first, as I was searching for your username. Sorry about that. I don't read a lot from this genre, so great to get a good recommendation from someone more familiar with it (Sci Fi Chick Lit? I had no idea that even existed!). I love British culture and this seems right up my alley! Thanks for sharing.
