About Me

Group founders and officers: DO NOT BOTHER INVITING ME TO GROUPS WITH QUESTIONABLE SWAPPERS!!! I will not join and I am getting tired of being invited to groups with bad/questionable swappers.

I have a butt ton (technical term) of kawaii/Japanese/Korean stationery. If you would prefer my letters to you are NOT on that type of stationery please let me know. I know not everyone enjoys cutesy crap so I can use some other stationery to suit the taste of all my pals.

I am not very good at intros and 'about me' type stuff, I always feel so mechanical writing about myself unless it's directed to a specific person.

I work as a computer network technician for a local high school district. My little family is pretty much my husband, step-son (14), and 3 older dogs. Our favorite is 'artsy crafty' time, which I to use for writing and paper crafts. I have a quirky and sometimes dark sense of humor. I enjoy going to dinner or on dates with my sisters and brothers. We like getting together for family dinners when our schedules permit.

Hobbies: running, swimming, cooking, writing, anime, manga, K-dramas, listening to music, pottery wheel and traveling.

Pets: two awesome chiweenies that I would die with out, and one Catahoula Leopard mix that is my shadow he thinks he is a lap dog.

LIKES: snail mail, tea, music, fruity scented lotion, laughing, trying new things, my family, robots, unicorns, rainbows, space, stickers, stuffed/vinyl toys, candy, food, good beer, theme parks, music, meeting new people, learning about other cultures.

DISLIKES: die-cut memos and die-cut letter sets (unless Kogepan), kawaii with real people or animals, rootbeer, black licorice, ephemera, heavy floral perfume smells, dirty work stations (I am a computer technician, nothing worse than food/finger crust on equipment I have to touch), not being able to find ingredients to try out new recipes, unattended children, dry skin, getting sick, stuff that smells like animal waste (I have a sensitive nose and I have gotten stuff from swaps that STINK of cat urine/litter box), religion, politics, cleaning (no I am not messy, I just hate cleaning), country music, Ranchera/Tex-Mex music.

No inmates please.

No folded letter sets please. I collect letter sets and like them undamaged.

Please no bath salts or bubble bath. My lady parts do not agree with those items and alas I don't get to enjoy the relaxation of bath times :( But I would be more than happy to send you those items if you chose. My lady parts thank you in advance.

Favorite Television

I don't have cable at home so what I watch is from Netflix. My current long time series is Naruto (I read the manga as well). I recently got into K-Dramas.

Currently watching: Once Upon A Time

If you watch anime (or K-dramas) and want to suggest me something, feel free to leave me a comment with your suggestion.

Favorite Movies

I am a big John Hughes fan so pretty much all of his movies I am in love with. I love 16 Candles.

Dune is my favorite movie of all time, I think because I was so young when it came out and I have great memories of that time in my life. I enjoy reading other Frank Herbert books as well.

I am a big fan of Miyazaki, I think I like Castle in the Sky the best. I mainly enjoy animated movies, not necessarily Dream Works or Pixar more foreign based animated works.

I also enjoy Psychological Thrillers, movies that get you thinking but are not overly gory like the unending dribble of Saw movies.

I like indie films and foreign films too, subtitles do not deter me.

I am a huge fan of 80's movies too. Princess Bride will always be a classic 80's flick that I can watch over and over.

Wish List

*Kawaii Stickers (non-brand and non-Japanese ok)

*Nyanko, Kogepan, Domo, Awachan and Mameshiba Kogepan

*Tea

*Unico the Unicorn (and all related characters, Kuruku and Beezle are my faves)

*Snacks

*TokiDoki

*Pens that have anime or manga related theme or are scented or cute colored

*Cell phone charms

*Stationery (Korea/Japan only)

*Kawaii, prefer letter sets, large/small memos, sticker flakes. I also enjoy extra large memo pads.

*Robots

*Unicorns

*Geek/Nerd Humor

*Anything space or alien related

*Regional snacks: sweet/salty/savory/spicy.

I could do without anymore Sanrio unless it is Kerropi and I am a bit fatigued of Rilakkuma as well unless space themed. I have more than I care to admit at the moment. I am okay with Korean Kawaii.

I am not affiliated with any religious or political organization so I politely request that any of those types of items are not sent to me. Also I do not participate in any religious holidays with the exception of Christmas and I only celebrate it as a secular holiday due to family obligations.

Flaked on or not rated by...

No one likes to be flaked on. I will always send out my packages on time and if for whatever reason there is an issue let me know.

@Delfin36 flaked for Stationary Swap! my awesome coordinator @msadanaga was able to angel the swap for me.

@Pancakes flaked for 5 Partner Sticker Swap #5 my swap coordinator @piglet59645 was able to angel the swap for me.

I always rate and hope that others are kind enough to do so. If you ever miss a rating from me please let me know so I may rate accordingly. I don't mean to but sometimes in my haste I forget to hit save. -_-

@Physis did not rate for Kawaii Letter! USA #10 ^^ seems to have just racked up 1's and dropped off the face of SB.

@veronicadelvalle did not rate for Pets and Tea had extensive communication with her, she also racked up some low ratings and dropped of the face of SB.

Favorite Music

I absolutely love music I have two exceptions: Country music I simply can not stand the twangy, whining endless romantic songs being sung by what sounds like Larry the Cable Guy. Tex-Mex/Ranchera style music, my father was in a Mexican Polka band and I have heard more crappy music than one should be expected to withstand in a lifetime.

That being said I actually do enjoy music from classical to techno, from black metal to experimental. I am always looking for new music to listen to and the music has to really wow me or the lyrics really have to reach me for me to make the music a repeat on my list.

Currently on my Pandora Shuffle Mix: Rabbit In The Moon, HIM, Korsakoff, Snake River Conspiracy, Babyland, Moka, The Black Keys, Royksopp, Soulwax, Legend Of Zelda, The Pillows, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, Asian Kung-Fu Generation, Prodigy, Boom Bip, Shiny Toy Guns, Metric, I Monster, Ratatat, Crystal Method, Big Bang, The Chemical Brothers, Babymetal, Fischerspooner, Simon & Garfunkle, Dimmu Borgir, Paul Oakenfold, Apoptygma Berzerk, Front 242, Q Lazzarus & Garvey, Echo & The Bunnymen, Venetian Snares, Danger, Die Antwoord, A Flock of Seagulls, Pixies, She Wants Revenge, Mindless Self Indulgence, Christian Death, Freezepop, Radiohead, OMD, Ladytron, The Advantage, E Nomine, 2ne1, Kraftwerk, Wumpscut, Ween, Clint Mansell, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Coal Chamber, Belly, Autechre, Aphex Twin, Black Sun Empire, Infected Mushroom, Ima Robot, Skinny Puppy
