Last Updated 1 JULY 2022

Hello, welcome to my profile! I am so glad you stopped by! My name is ROOK.

I am autistic and live and work in Hollywood. I am married (9/13/2019) to my best friend Tennyson and we have a chihuahua named Lu (short for Luna).

My husband and I live a cozy minimalist lifestyle. It isn’t that I don’t like stuff, I just have to control my environment more, as it becomes overwhelming. I try to only create and join swaps with things I would enjoy bringing into my home. There are exceptions of course. If I receive anything I do not find useful, I donate or reswap it. I will always leave feedback according to guidelines regardless.


Wishes

  • Postalettes or Stationery Sets- blank ones to send
  • Postcard stamps - my post office has been out of them for months.
  • JELLYFISH anything
  • Anything from the Worlds Smallest Toy Brand
  • LEGO Minifig accessories and animals - cups, swords, books, anything a Minifig would hold
  • Nintendo DS Lite - Lego games. This is the only console I have and I lost my game wallet that I had all my Lego games in it. I am devastated and heartbroken as this was a complete collection and now I have only the one that was in my console (Lego Harry Potter years 1-4) Used is fine
  • Hanayama Puzzles - I am obsessed!
  • anything from or inspired by my wishlists above, I love second hand things.
  • Tchochkes with EVAN on them
  • Disney Trading Pins
  • Forever stamps, International Stamps and Postcard Stamps

Things that make me happy

My main special interest right now is Jellyfish I love everything about them!! books, photos, collectibles, toys….anything with jellyfish on them! Special interests are more than a collection or hobby they are kind of a self regulating adventure for most autistics. They help bring order, joy, and peace to my world. I just can’t seem to get enough of them!

Other things I enjoy are:

  • My American Girl Doll, Junior. She is custom made and looks just like me!
  • Movies - I love the whole process of making movies. Some of my favorite movies are Everything Everywhere All at Once, Legally Blonde, Penelope, Practical Magic, Marie Antoinette, Meet Joe Black, Tomorrowland
  • Disneyland - I go about once a week, when work allows. It is also a special interest, but it is mainly the history of the park. I love any Disney ephemera (old, new, used, a corner….anything)!! I do like Disney in general, so I will never say no anything Disney. My favorite characters are Snow White, Merida, Elsa (specifically Frozen 2), Mabel Pines, Captain Marvel, and of course Mickey Mouse and the Fab Five!
  • Archery - I love archery! I shoot as often as I can. I am hoping to compete someday. Artemis, Merida, Robin Hood are favorites for this reason.
  • Anthropomorphic Animals - Especially MICE or any woodland animals! I also like Chickadees, Swans, Pegasuses
  • Slytherin, Luna Lovegood, Thestrals, Queenie Goldstein. Specifically.
  • Always Peter Pan
  • Reading - THIS YEAR I am trying to read a new books by a POC, disabled, LGBTQA+ authors, so I am always up for suggestions!! Brian Jacques Mossflower series is a favorite.
  • Collections - Keys (Modern, skeleton, big, small…all keys. But actual keys, not stickers and such), Whiskies, Rooks (chess pieces), Glassybaby

IYKYK

If you know what any of the following means…We should be friends. (Also they are things I really love)

  • “Crimson, Eleven, Delight, Petrichor.”
  • Xana and Aelita
  • “Saving people, killing things, Family Business.”
  • Roll for Initiative
  • The Mystery Shack
  • AOC
  • The Lazy Egg
  • “Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.”

🛸 My husband wrote a TTRPG game. It’s called Jump Rangers and it’s about Kid Space Commandos fighting alien dinosaurs and robots, click the link and check it out!


Swap-bot is something I do because I enjoy sending mail and receiving mail. Simple as that. I try to check-in as often as possible. I used to be a lot more involved but it really started becoming not fun, so I backed off a little. Swap-bot is for fun, not a job, I have a life outside of Swap-bot.


If there is something missing that you saw before…I still like those things. I just like to change up my incoming mail once in awhile.


Postcards for My Husband

I am always looking for postcards for my husband.

I send a postcard to my husband nearly EVERY Friday since the day we got married. I write a little about what we did that week and why I love him. He keeps them keepsake box. I am always looking for 4X6 or smaller postcards (so they fit in his box) with his interests.

His Interests:

  • Animals: Dragons, Lions, Chickadees,
  • Norse Mythology, Egyptian Mythology and Chinese Mythology
  • Star Wars: A wings, Han Solo, any Droids, Jedi items
  • Coffee
  • The Last Airbender cartoon
  • Movie Posters, Movie making, Director things
  • Romantic quotes and pictures of couples
  • Doctor Who
  • Boston: Bruins, UMass, The Cape, Andover
  • Things that remind him of Me: Alaska, Archery, Teddy Bears, Foxes, Mice, Disney Couples

Please Do Not Send

🚫ALLERGIES: Gluten & Walnuts (other nuts are okay)

🚫Anything musty, strong perfume/incense or smoky smelling - it kills my senses and overwhelms me and goes in the garbage.

🚫Books unless they are on my Amazon Wishlist. It isnt that I dont like books. I am just very specific about the books I keep as most of my library is digital. I will just donate them, but I would like to get swaps I want to keep.

🚫 Propaganda of any kind

🚫 Random toss ins not based on my profile. That is of course unless it is a random item or blind swap.

Comment: Everything you sent in this swap is so thoughtful, Rook! I legit got emotional about the jellyfish cards 😭 I want to put one in every single envelope I send out, now! Ahhh, and I can't wait to use this cute travel mug! 💜 Also, if you don't mind me saying: People who try to police your identity can go suck an egg! Labels are supposed to make us feel more comfortable with ourselves~
Response: So happy you enjoyed it all!! Thanks for participating!
