Quirky history, sea voyages and shipwrecks.
Scandinavian mysteries and good old fashioned ghost stories.
Folktales - especially those with unhappy endings.
Books with unreliable narrators.
Books I'm Currently reading - Murdle by G.T. Karber. It's a very fun, murder mystery , logic puzzle book that got me through too many hours sitting on a plane. But the long trip was worth it to see the majesty of the Norwegian Fjords.
Books on my shelf waiting to be read include:
Murder in the Family by Cara Hunter
To dance to - 1950's music.
To sing badly to - 1980's songs.
When I'm feeling wild - rockabilly.
When I'm feeling tired - mellow jazz.
When I'm in love - 1960's French pop.
In the dead of night - spooky murder ballads.
My public playlists on Spotify (by hauntedfondue-us):
Hearing Double - a wide array of cool covers
Killer Murder Ballads - just what the name says
Things I like:
Circus (going to them and their history). I've even tried the flying trapeze.
Eurovision - I've got a mini crush on Dadi Freyr
Artists: Edward Gorey, Michael Sowa, Else Bostelmann.
Recently I discovered the art of Ivar Rødningen on a trip to Norway (I plan to be incredibly annoying with references to my recent trip there). His troll pictures are magical.
Seeing movies in old cinemas.
Road trips and roadside attractions. I'm a big fan of Atlas Obscura.
Watching the birds in my backyard. We recently saw an owl in our birdbath which was very, very cool.
Antique stores and flea markets.
Old cemeteries - I spent many hours adding to the findagrave.com site.
Writing bad poetry.
Very basic astronomy. I know about 3 constellations at present. But am always up for watching a meteor shower.
The moon. Rabbits. Moon rabbit.
Watching lightning storms.
Forests and mountains.
Squids, octopi and other interesting sea creatures.
Trolls - not the cute ones with pink hair but the grumpy Scandinavian types.
Groovy mid century stuff - from furniture to jello molds to lava lamps. And don't get me started on casseroles!
Things I don't like: most sports, itchy sweaters and red beets.
black and white photos
book and music recommendations
folk art and folk tales
old maps and travel ephemera
patches - especially of places like parks or attractions
I enjoy when the sender adds their own personal touch to the card, however they feel inspired.

I like to create things for my garden. I've recently made a retaining wall and mosaic stepping stones. Growing things in the garden is another story. Cacti and weeds seem to do best. Recently I discovered a Christmas Cholla growing in the back depths of my yard. I've tried replanting it and am hoping it will take to its new home.
Currently I'm liking ...
Snap Judgement - Spooked
