About Me

My watchword is whimsy. I'm a 39 year old newly married (June 2, 2018) Houston, TX resident. Recently lost my beloved Radar, Boston terrier on 7/31/18. He was a great friend and companion and my heart is broken. I am mostly here to swap postcards, but I may sometimes join other swaps if they capture my fancy.

Other things to know about me:

  • progressive politically
  • board game geek (perpetually in need of update)
  • reader, writer, editor, singer
  • rarely takes herself too seriously
  • some people call me a hipster, but it’s just a coincidence that I like what hipsters like

Things I’m Really Into For the Moment:

Red Bull Purple (any energy drink that's purple), The Myths and Legends Podcast, The History Chicks Podcast, True Crime Garage, Love Nikki clicky game, avoiding writing, Posh beauty products

Swapping Philosophy:

It is important to rate appropriately and follow through on one’s commitments, even if it’s just a postcard. It becomes less fun when those who feel differently somehow wiggle out of their obligation to which they chose to commit.

Swapping Preferences:

Postcards: Naked, stamped with real stamps, and non-tourist is preferred; handmade is always welcome unless prohibited in the swap details; if the swap requires multiple cards in an envelope then please send as per the swap requirements

I always include on items I sent out the date, the name of the swap, and my username. I recommend you do the same. I sometimes include weather, tunes, mood. LMK if those are important for me to write on a card I send to you.

Don’t Know What To Write?

I love to hear about unusual names you’ve heard/seen/read; tell me about what you would be patron saint of if you were beatified; write me a piece of flash fiction or haiku based on the front of the card; bullet journal your day; list what you ate/drank today; what is on your shopping list?; what are the last 5 songs you’ve listened to?; what podcasts are you really into?; what is your substitute cuss word when littles are around?; tell me a ghost story or legend from your area; if all else fails, copy out a quote or poem that you think might catch my interest.

Favorite Music

The Wailin' Jennys, Dar Williams, Brandi Carlile, Girlyman, The Nields, Fiona Apple, The Mavericks, musicals/showtunes, Amy Winehouse, Dave Matthews Band, The Decemberists, The Dresden Dolls, Fleetwood Mac, Fun, Garth Brooks, Guster, Jimmy Buffet, Justin Timberlake, Lily Allen, The Monkees, Pink, Regina Spektor, System of a Down, Tegan and Sara, some current pop music

Favorite Television

Star Trek, Firely, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, MASH, Lost Girl, House of Cards, Vikings, Survivor, Amazing Race, Orange is the New Black, Dual Survival, Naked and Afraid, Swamp People, and any survival show, Orphan Black, 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, DIY/fixing up houses TV shows

Comment: Sabrina, thanks so much for your amazing card!!! I loved Coco Too!! Such a colorful movie. I love Dias Dos Muerta. A much more friendly way to think of those who have passed on and Disney did a great job showing how spirits pass thru the land of the living to visit their family. Thanks for the vintage post cards

I hope your trip was awesome. I’d have definitely approached the smokers and gotten my point across one way or another. 😊😊 I’m in awe of the animals you saw. One day I hope to see a polar bear in the wild. Might be my last day on Earth, but hey... thanks for the PC, love. xoxox❤️🖤❤️🖤
