Hey there! I'm taking a break from the 'Bot for a while. I'll be on occasionally, but if you need anything, drop me a line.

❤ I am a proud co-owner of the Super Nerds group. Come share in the nerdy fun! ❤

Hi there, I'm Manda. I love foreign language, literature, anything nerdy, and technology. I enjoy illustrating and animation. I'm now at that point in my life where I've no idea what my future holds or what I want to do. :S I would love to be an editor or something of that nature. Who knows?

I have 2 bunbabies that are my world: Rorschach, who I've raised from 3 months old, and his wifey Ramona Flowers. Aside from Craisins and rose petals, their favorite thing in the world is willow branches.

I'm mostly a shy nerd who has a lot of random interests and an adaptable personality. In some ways, I'm a typical girly-girl; in others, I'm not. I spend a lot of time dreaming up new crafty things I want to make or imaginging crazy things I want to capture on paper. I adore cute things, especially cute animals and tiny things with faces that typically don't have faces. I'm passionately addicted to collecting stuffed animals and I really love food. All food. I'm also a huge gamer, though I don't have as much time for it anymore. But, don't be fooled - I also like the darker side of things as well. >:]

I am fond of intelligent discussions and debates, especially about philosophy or theology, and enjoy learning about almost everything. In general, I love having fun and being silly, though I spend most of my time alone, usually reading, listening to music or playing video games. Satire is my favorite genre of literature, but I'm also ridiculously addicted to British humor. I don't think a life without dry wit would be bearable.

☆ Random: I'm not picky about swaps. I have a twisted/dark sense of humor and am not easily offended. Also, while I am not very religious, religious themes & images are not unwelcome, as long as it is respectful. This goes for all religions.
☆ Jewelry: Love chunky costume jewelry rings. I have 5 piercings (ears, navel, lip) & a nickel allergy and sensitive skin. Nickel-free & stainless steel earring backings work for me.
☆ Makeup/Beauty Products: I prefer simple things like lip gloss or lotion.
☆ Food: No known food allergies. I eat/drink almost everything & am not picky.

I like many different crafts, but I mostly prefer to draw/illustrate and sculpt with polymer clay. I do digital art and photo-manipulation, too. I love making ATCs. Mine are almost always illustrated.

I make charms, pendants, jewelry, and figures with polymer clay (mainly tiny food for my Etsy). I dabble in plushie making and sewing and am trying to learn how to crochet.

I don't do any papercrafting, but I hoard ephemera & scrapbook paper to use for other things.

Oh yeah, and I love to write.

I'm kind of picky. Just a few of my favorite authors: Anne Rice and Douglas Adams, Chuck Palahniuk, Margaret Atwood, Amy Tan, Isabel Allende, Jeffrey Eugenides, & Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

I love so many specific books & authors - it's easier to break it up into genres.

☆ Satire!
☆ British humor. (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Terry Pratchett...) Dry wit and I are BFF.
☆ Magical realism
☆ Interesting memoirs or pseudo-memoirs. Realistic life.
☆ Theology
☆ Science research & things about technology
☆ Studies in pop culture
☆ Sci-fi & fantasy
☆ Paranormal romance
☆ Teen Fiction/YA

I devour all sorts of music so here's the bare minimum. I grew up loving classical and played clarinet for 8 years. I enjoy a large variety of genres: metal, rock, pop, dance, vocal trance, house, alternative, punk.

My favorite rock bands are Blue October and NIN. I listen to a lot of electronica...some of my favorite DJs: BT, ATB, Deadmau5, Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Daniel Kandi, Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin

I am a total concert & rave junkie. Live performances are one of my favorite things in the world.

Comment: Thank you for resending these two swaps darling. The necklaces are very sweet. i would suggest you reinforce the pendant hook with superglue though. My favourite is the blue cupcake, but that's like choosing your favourite piece of cake from a cake-buffet :) Great work - I cannot wait to wear them out.
Response: Aww, I do reinforce them but I may have forgotten to do so with some of them. I really liked the blue cupcake, too! It was quite fun (and a challenge) to ice. I bet you will look absolutely fabulous wearing them. Thank you so much, dear!
Comment: Thank you for a great swap Manda. I absolutely love the voodoo gingerbread dude. The soap has been sniffed and left in the bathroom and the Nerd lipbalm has been hubby-approved :)
Response: Yayayaya! I thought the gingerbread was your style. :) Glad you like the goodies!

Comment: Thank you so much for your journal! It arrived today, and I've just finished reading it. It was so fun to read! I liked your memories, random facts, and thoughts. I'm going to write the rest of my comments in a PM.
Response: Oh, gosh, I can't believe I never responded to your rating (and probably never updated mine, either). I'm so glad you liked your journal! I had a fun time putting everything together, and I'm glad you enjoyed reading it! Thank you again for agreeing to do the swap!
Comment: Thank you for the halloween ATC and happy halloween

Comment: Hi, I really liked this package. :-) While super heroes aren't exactly "my thing", the wolverine figurine is super cute and will be given a worthy place in my home (so, maybe I should read more super hero stuff). I love the Halloween treat bag and the Peanuts post-its & journal. The journal was a little bent during postage, I think, but it's definitely usable. (just letting you know!)
