About Me

There was an accident involving a tractor trailer of mail heading east toward Richmond, in Virginia, in the early hours of November 17. I know all local mail from Harrisonburg goes to Richmond for processing. I do not know if any recent swaps were on that truck or if anyone else's swaps may now be scattered in the ice or destroyed in this incident. I do have pictures of all sent swaps before I dispatch them at the post. If something does not arrive, please let me know. There may be resends required! There was a lot of ice, and it closed the interstate in both directions for hours on Afton Mountain. The postal inspector was called to the scene after a tour bus hit the fallen mail tractor trailer, slicing it in half.

I restarted my blog, Hungry Like the Wolfe. It only has a few entries right now, but I'm setting a goal of doing 1 a week! Please check it out and follow me.

Yes, I received a 3 on 2 July 2019. I had an irresponsible streak. It is not a fixable 3, as in I can't go back into the past and send in a timely manner. I do take pictures of all of my swaps. I mark sent when the swap is ready to go to the post office. I do contact people when a swap is going to be late. I learned from my mistakes. Most people are accepting of that, but I also now have a 3 from someone who did not accept my explanation of why a swap is late. I contacted all of my partners as I had the swaps completed but had been carrying them around with me unable to get to the post office because of back to school meetings. I don't know how to fix that, as I was being as responsible as I could.

As for my most recent 3, I will in the future contact all swap partners if something will be EVEN 1 DAY LATE. I am currently trying to make sure to send swaps out before the swap date (and am on a streak where I am several days ahead!) If I am permitted to do any swaps in the future (I must recognize that at some point I will allowed to do nothing because I have failed to be timely 4 times in the past.), I will continue this streak. If not, I will contact my partner.

If a swap does not arrive, please contact me before rating me a 1. I will do all in my power to fix it.

I'm an English professor. I also enjoy reading, cross stitch, cooking, board games, Magic the gathering.

I love cats. I have one cat, Aspect, who has been my best friend for 13 years.

I also like owls.

I'm a big fan of coffee and tea. I like a wide variety of both. I'm very interested in trying new kinds of tea and coffee! I can use loose leaf and bagged teas.

I also really love hats and fascinators. I don't really do ball caps, but I have the look that allows me to wear Derby type hats or English facinators (basically tiny hats on a headband). I also enjoy tiaras and other fun headpieces. I find a lot of these sorts of things at Halloween at Michael's or at stores like Claire's at the mall.

I really like large mugs for all of my hot beverages. I think delicate little tea cups are cute, but I want to drink more than a tea sample :) Oversized mugs are my favorites.

I like stickers, and I've decided that I will once again join into some sticker swaps. I do get a lot of my stickers from Current which has HUGE sticker sheets, like 9x13, so those might be cut into smaller chunks and/or should count as more than one sheet. But they have gorgeous stickers!

Favorite Crafts

Baking (especially at midnight)

cross stitch (I'm working on a huge dragon writer piece right now)

I also enjoy making my own body products like bath bombs and shower cream and shampoo. I love to use my essential oils in all that I do.

Weird Jobs

I'm a mystery shopper, which means I go into stores and ask questions and write about what happens in the encounters.

This results in people asking me weird questions sometimes like how to use a prison credit card at the gas pumps. I also get asked if I would like to join the army.

I have photographed bathroom graffiti so I have picture proof that something isn't supposed to be there.

Favorite Music

They say that most people are nostalgic for the music of when they were young adults. I am no exception. I am a little stuck in the 90s and early 00s I love the Lilth Fair set (Tori Amos, Alanis Morrisette, Indigo Girls, etc)

I also listen to a community radio station that plays music you don't normally hear on other radio stations. Carbon Leaf, for example. Or blues or such a wide variety!

In tv, I really miss Firefly!

Favorite Books

I'm an English professor, so you might have guessed that I do love to read. I am usually reading 3 books at a time--one fiction or nonfiction, 1 romance or mystery, and 1 young adult, science fiction, or fantasy. I am also usually listening to an audiobook, which I download from the library app.

I also like to read and write about food. I'm a poet, so I also read and write poetry.

I love Harry Potter and think it's the sort of thing worth rereading.

Likes

Fuzzy socks

Things that smell good. Love scented items. Favorite scents include lavender, fall scents, mint, floral, woodsy

purple and orange are favorite colors

olive drab is a color that looks really good on me

trees, though I prefer non-evergreen

I'm addicted to lip balm. I make my own and I also buy lip balm all the time

bath products. I think the best .way to end the day is with a bath and good book. Baths are best with something scented in them--bombs, salts, bubbles, oils

I geek out over stationary and pens and stickers

I LOVE puns and wordplay!

Glitter. I know it gets everywhere, but I still love it!

Please Don't Send

Recipes that require zucchini (I'm allergic). I am allergic to all kinds of squash, pumpkin, and zucchini. I have learned that pumpkin can usually be switched to sweet potato and turns out yum, but I don't know how to substitute for zucchini

Winnie the Pooh

Postcard Preferences

I like a wide variety of postcards. I enjoy the touristy ones, but I really like the non-touristy ones, too. I like pictures of owls, dragons, fantasy, some of the art cards, B/W photography. Things with sparkle and glitter are fine. I enjoy nature, particularly trees. Cats are wonderful on postcards.

Not a big fan of postcards with just a couple of words on a background, like "sweater weather" for fall. Would rather have a scene. That said, I got a postcard that said "Your sparkle has not gone unnoticed" in bright glittery colors, and I loved it. I like bright colors. Sometimes I love the random postcards. I like vintage ones, too, and I can get these at a local store, which is fun.

Aspect

My kitty, Aspect, is 13, but still has a lot of energy. Her favorite toys include those balls that look like soccer or golf balls and are made of Nerf/sponge material or ones that are like big pompoms.

When she was a kitten, she had a bat toy. It was her favorite ever, though it quickly became 2 toys: bat head and bat body. She LOVES bats. And glitter. I tell her all the time that it's ok to love glitter and Bojuka Bog (a magic card--it's ok to have a girly side and a competitive side) She also likes a catnip mouse now and again, especially the grey ones. She loves pipe cleaners and string and her laser toy. She'll run down the hall and jump to get that red dot!

Specti loves treats of most kinds.

She does not like hard plastic balls with bells in them or toys shaped like springs. I try to keep her away from too much catnip as she gets angry instead of mellow when she's had too much. She had a cactus once, as she loved to rub against it and use it a comb....until she tried to take it to bed. Then I had to confiscate the cactus.

Like most kitties, she'll love the box as much as if not more than the toy :)

Comment: I apologize for the very late rating, I have received the postcard much earlier - but I there were some mail issues back then, than I hadn't been at home and wasn't logging into swap-bot either. I would like to make it up to you and send mail to you if you would accept my apologies and send me a mailing address. Sincerely sorry and hope you understand.

Hi! I am one of your swap partners and was just reading over your profile... Yellow squash is a great alternative for zucchini! :) (That is, if you're not allergic to yellow squash!)
