I'LL BE ON SWAP-BOT HIATUS, FOLKS.
As much as I wanted to join so many cool swaps in my groups, I don't have the time to commit to swapping. I thought it best to go on leave rather than find myself in over my head. I hope to be back soon. Thank you so much for the wonderful swaps I've received and most importantly for the swap partners I've met in the past year. You've helped me a lot in my grief journey.
(P.S. I realized I accidentally deleted most of my profile. ARGHHHHH!!! I should have previewed this message first. :( Anyway, I'll put it together again when I get a chance. I'll still be logging on here from time to time to check messages and check group updates I'm a member of. Peace!

I'm a fan of JRR Tolkien and his Lord of the Rings books. Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials Trilogy. C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. I also like Ray Bradbury, Roger Zelazny and Neil Gaiman. I read Umberto Eco, Italo Calvino and Salman Rushdie's works. I love women writers: Virginia Woolf, Maxine Hong-Kingston, Sandra Cisneros, Ursula LeGuin, A.S. Byatt, Joan Didion, Erica Jong, Harper Lee, E. Annie Proulx, Jeanette Winterson. As for poetry, I love Pablo Neruda and e.e. cummings' works. Right now, I'm exploring Sylvia Plath's poetry. I also read non-fiction I like the works of humorist David Sedaris. His essays make me laugh and I could use some laughter these days.

Some BBC series: Dr. Who. Being Human, The Inbetweeners, Survivor, Top Gear. But nowadays I don't watch TV (thanks to Netflix streaming videos).
My interest in music is eclectic. I don't have a favorite genre of music. But if you strong-arm me, I'd say I like Queen, The Beatles, and Frank Sinatra. I've been known to sing along to Japanese pop music, The Carpenters and ABBA. But I love playing bass for Metallica, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie and Lynyrd Skynyrd songs on Rock Band. I also listen to blues. Oh and I like music from certain musicals like Oliver!, My Fair Lady, Les Miserables, Wicked, Billy Elliot, Disney's Newsies, Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast. (I know I can be a closet Disney fangirl sometimes...;-) I like alternative and indie music. Barenaked Ladies, Gorillaz, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure and The Police are all-time favorites and some 80s new wave.
Alfred Hitchcock movies. Lord of the Rings. Neverending Story. Labyrinth. The Princess Bride. Legend. Back to the Future. Star Wars. 80s cartoon movies: Flight of Dragons, The Last Unicorn. Some Tim Burton movies: Bettlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Ed Wood, The Nightmare before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd. Some foreign films: A Clockwork Orange, Billy Elliot. La Dolce Vita, Luc Besson's Leon, Karakter, Antonia's Line, Amores Perros, Central do Brasil. David Lynch's Eraserhead. Fritz Lang's Metropolis. Akira Kurosawa films: Yojimbo, 7 Samurai, Rashomon, Dreams. Asian martial arts films. I also like Hayao Miyazaki's anime movies: Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, Totoro, Pompoko, Nausicaa, Spirited Away, Porco Rosso, The Cat Returns.
