I am a writer, a reader, a poet, a photographer. I live in Kentucky. I'm liberal. I'm non-religious, but spiritual. I love setting goals. I am a night owl and love staying up late/sleeping in! I am a crafting junkie and uber-geeky. If you can teach me something I don't already know, I love it! I'm into eco-living to reduce waste. I just got my first sewing machine, and I love it. I'd love project ideas! I wish I had the money to hire someone to be my personal organizer. I can't keep things where they're supposed to be, let alone keep track of what needs to be done!
They Might Be Giants is my absolute favorite band. I also like the (now defunct) Dixie Chicks, Dan Fogleberg, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Indigo Girls, Barenaked Ladies
Madeleine L'Engle(my hero!) Anything by Jim Butcher. George R.R. Martin, Charlaine Harris. Jennifer Rardin is a current favorite. Laurel K. Hamilton, J.R. Ward, Cat Adams/CT Adams & Cathy Clamp, Phaedra Weldon, Patricia Briggs, Lilith St. Crow, Kim Harrison, Kelly Armstrong. Basically anything urban fantasy. I am a bookworm, and mostly I'll read just about anything.
current: Bones, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Castle, Shameless, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Psych, Game of Thrones, Rizzoli & Isles, The Closer, Doctor Who, Leverage, NCIS
Older: Farscape, Stargate SG-1, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, MacGyver, Scarecrow & Mrs. King, Firefly/Serenity
I lprefer TV over movies.

Anything gold or silver rocks, but I am anti-glitter! I love dark colors like hunter green, navy blue, and burgundy. Any shade of purple but again, I like dark colors. Reds are OK, with maroons preferred.
I dislike orange, pink, and I'm not terribly crazy about yellow.
I promise never to flake! I am unorganized and a bit ADD. I am absolutely horrible at meeting deadlines. I will ALWAYS get it to you. It may be a little late, but I try to make it within the 2 week deadline. I try to communicate with my partner when I am going to be late, but I'm not always great at that either. I do appreciate understanding in these situations. I try to make or send the best I can and I don't want to rush it and send something that you don't like.
As for rating, I may take a while to rate as well. It doesn't mean that I haven't received the swap, it just means that I've gotten behind in rating!
