I adore and revere all books, most notably Sci-fi and historical romances, but anything humorous as well.Stephen King, when I'm in the mood, but prefer the earlier stuff. The works of Robert Heinlein and Spider Robinson enjoy a special place with me.
Dr Strangelove, Princess Bride, Nightmare Before Christmas, Serenity, and most sci-fi. The Lord of the Rings, (for being just beautiful to watch) Wallace and Gromit.The Pixar animated movies like Finding Nemo.
Firefly, Bones, Criminal Minds, CSI(the original),Heroes.God,The Devil, and Bob. Alien Nation. Pushing Daisies - most shows I like tend to get cancelled.Cartoons, the Disney-Pixar shorts and the later Bugs Bunny/ Looney Tunes.The single best piece of television was in a miniseries,Nightmares&Dreamscapes, a piece called Battleground. It's what I watch when nothing else grabs my attention. I also love the BBC specials, Walking with Dinosaurs, Walking with Prehistoric Beasts, and Walking with Monsters. Pretty much anything from the Discovery Channel. Also Forensic Files and similar shows like Murder by the Book.
I absolutely LOVE Batman:The Animated Series, Darkwing Duck, Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited. These are the shows I watch when I don't want to watch anything else.
I just recently became interested in the old Twilight Zone episodes and was recently introduced to Doctor Who, whom I love! (I prefer the Tenth Doctor to this new guy, though.)
Compulsive doodler, love drawing strong monochromic patterns,Egyptian-style eyes. My first love is sculpture but I've tried most other crafts. Quilting and sewing mostly, recently became interested in ATCs,stenciling, and papercraft.Mediocre crocheter, never had the paitence for knitting but I recently learned how. Haven't progressed past the dishcloth stage yet, but I'm hoping to start my first pair of socks.
Ok, about my username- Yes, I know it's a guy name. Simon is my cat.
(That's his picture) I am personally a girl, my name is Sara Jean. Native Southerner, youngest of two girls with two nieces and one nephew that I adore and shamelessly spoil.Owned by one mostly Russian Blue tomcat, a Norwegian Forest cat, and a tortie who all treat me like their favorite piece of self-heating furniture. Long time Wiccan, everyday I try to learn something new. Thrifty to almost Scrooge-like proportions.Self-taught, I tend to be overly critical of my own work. I write constantly, almost obsessively(can you tell?) but my handwriting is nearly illegible(fair warning!). I have a bit of magpie in me, I can't walk by something interesting without stopping to look or touch.I make my own envies and notecards. I love pretty things;finding them, making them, learning how to make them. I enjoy yard sales, thrift shops, and flea markets. My sense of humor is seriously skewed towards the sarcastic side and I LOVE black comedies.
Bento stuff, accessories(dividers,the cute little bottles and cups)(If you live near a Daiso store,I'll be your best friend!) No more rice or egg molds, please- I'm looking for the little sausage cutters now♥

Anything to do with the Portal games
Fanfiction - the stuff that's so bad it's funny
A note for swap partners -
I love getting partial balls of yarn, especially fine yarn like sock yarn or thinner. I do a lot of small crafts that use just small amounts of yarn, so if you have a little bit left from a project feel free to send it my way.
I also do a lot of papercrafting using odd materials, like candy wrappers, empty boxes, or the thick mylar that coffee "bricks" come in. If you have any of this (clean, please!) valuable "trash", I would love to have it - especially if it's in a language other than English or from something not available in the US.
Country mostly, but anything that grabs me. Songs that have stories to them and a good melody - Brad Paisley, Johnny Cash, Everclear,Emerald Rose, Taylor Swift, Jonathan Coulton, Abney Park
overly cutesy things(except as noted in Likes)
makeup(itches and I am prone to exzema)
pastel or florescent colors(esp. pink)
fake vanilla scents
anything really strongly scented
chamomile ( I am allergic)
In November I do the nanowrimo, so I won't be doing many swaps from late October to early December. Unless by some miracle I finish early.
