About Me

Fortyish eastern NC native now living in metro Atlanta. Yes, I have an accent; no, I'm not a redneck -- but don't get me started on the topic of barbecue unless you have a while. (It's not beef and it's not red..)

By day, I'm an employee benefits specialist; I currently work as an account manager for a small group benefits brokerage. Yes, I do have knowledge of (and an opinion about) the Affordable Care Act and health care reform in general; no, I'm not interested in discussing it here.

At night, I'm a semi-crazy cat lady who likes:

  • Creative Writing (primarily chick-lit, "soft" sci-fi and fan fiction)
  • Photography (especially buildings and landscapes)
  • Walking and hiking
  • Traveling
  • Cross-stitching
  • Reading

My profile is currently a work in progress, so it is subject to change frequently and without warning.

The Latest

I just (re-) joined the homeownership club in June 2016 when I bought a little condo in the northeast metro area. So I'm spending a lot of time setting it up the way I like it; I'm determined to do things right this time.

The move also means I've gone back to having a kitchen I can actually cook in, after several years of basic apartment kitchens. So I've been spending a lot of time re-familiarizing myself with that, and re-creating my recipe collection.

I'll be starting the cat volunteering again in January 2017! Check out Half the Way...Home!

Postcards

I'm on Swap-Bot primarily because I love postcards. But in my case, it's not the postcard itself; it's the story. I've always been a writer in my heart, and I love collecting stories.

I love naked (stamped/written) postcard swaps within the United States as well as International. All postcards are welcome except ads and adult-themed ones, but the ones that will make me the happiest will be store-bought and feature something local to you along with a story about it.

Favorite Television

I'm a die-hard media fan and there was recently a fun meme that went around where you list the ships you'd go down with. Here are mine, and they might give you an idea of what I like to watch:

  • Battlestar Galactica (2003): Roslin/Adama
  • Castle: Castle/Beckett, Javier/Lanie
  • Earth 2: Devon/Danziger
  • Firefly: Mal/Inara, Simon/Kaylee
  • Star Trek: Enterprise: Trip/T'Pol, Archer/Sato
  • Star Trek: Voyager: Janeway/Chakotay, Doctor/Seven
  • Star Wars: Han/Leia, Luke/Mara

Response: Would you send me a picture of it? I could've sworn it had a cat - and if I made a mistake, I want to rectify!

It would be nice if you rate my PC apparently... you are a flaker!

TC on Mar 16, 2017:

You're tweeting, so you're alive and well, and apparently just intentionally flaking. You've been removed from Newbie Helpers.

DarkSkullMistress42 on Mar 4, 2017:
