3.6.19: Shuttering the ol' profile for awhile; got some life-livin' to do.
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:
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
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.
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.
