About Me

badge

Hi everyone, I'm Jenn.

I'm 29, married, and a mom to a cat.

I spend most of my free time exercising, reading, blogging, and gaming. My big passions are music, food, fashion, art, history, foreign languages, travel and snorkeling. Feel free to friend me and give me a shout if you have similar interests.

Note: I send all packages, letters, emails, etc on time. Please let me know if you don't receive your swap from me so I can take the appropriate steps.

Also, if for some reason I receive something I have no use for, I will either re-swap it, or give it to someone who will use it. I encourage you to do the same with my items, I won't take offense :)

Swap-bot member since April 2008!

Favorite Music

My favourite music genres is rock/alternative and punk. Especially J-Rock, I can't live without it!

A couple examples of music I love: Robyn, Alice Nine, Dir En Grey, Incubus, Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, The GazettE, SuG, An Cafe, Phantasmagoria, Miyavi...I mainly listen to Asian rock and pop. I also DJ online from time to time, but these stints are few and far between these days.

Favorite Books

I love books related to travel and food, especially cookbooks. I also like anything related to Japan and the Japanese culture, especially fashion. My fave book of all time is Night by Elie Weisel (thanks Oprah!) although The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath is a close second. For novels, I adore Stephen King, Margaret Atwood but will try any book once.

I collect cookbooks obsessively, I have tons of them. New, Old, Used, Ethnic...I love them all!

Favorite Movies

I don't have one favourite movie, or even a genre, because there are just so many that I like. I like horror of all kinds, including foreign. Some quick examples: Saw, The Ring (US and Japan), The Grudge (US and Japan). My favourite comedies are written by Seth Rogan, his sense of humour is right on, ie: Superbad, 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up.

Favorite Television

My television preferences are all over the place, I like British shows like Coronation Street (huge fan!) and The Office. Generally, I prefer reality-type shows and anime over pretty much anything else.

Fave anime: Deadman Wonderland, Death Note, Fairy Tail...too many.

Favorite Crafts

I have come to the realization that I may like crafts, but I'm not that crafty of a person. I get bouts of creativeness and then I go blank for a while. I don't think I'll be doing many craft swaps but if I do join one, it will be one that I'm really passionate about and will put my heart into. One of my grandmothers used to say, "Any job worth doing is worth doing well" and I take this approach to anything I create.

Likes/Dislikes

Likes: Anything kawaii, especially Hello Kitty and all her Sanrio friends, glitter and glam, leopard print, plaid print, retro prints, and 60's decor kitsch.

I love holidays, all the holidays! I celebrate Christian and Jewish holidays (for a number of reasons ), as well as the secular ones! Personally, I am more a Buddhist and am getting into that more recently. I love receiving holiday items though, so feel free to send any kind.

Favorite scents: vanilla, fresh linens, most fruity scents (except kiwi). I like "clean" scents a lot. Food related scents rock too!

My favourite colors are: pink, purple, turquoise, red and lime green. Color combos: hot pink/lime green and black with anything.

Dislikes: Food wise, I do not like: walnuts or black licorice flavored/scented things. I only chew certain gums so I prefer not to receive any bubble or chewing gum, thanks!

Music is almost wide open except honky tonk style country and Celine Dion, honestly. Otherwise, I ask that you don't send me things that can be easily damaged in shipping.

Some items I prefer not to get: wooden pencils, pins/buttons, anything for kids, things you wouldn't want to receive :)

Important: I am very allergic to kiwi and anything kiwi scented makes me sick too!

Things I Am Looking For

  • Official Hello Kitty and Sanrio products, Q-Lia, San-X. Anything Hello Kitty to add to my collection is good, I like anything big or small, kawaii stuff just rocks me!
  • Candy and snacks from all over the world: I especially love new flavor pairing and things not so common in North America. Japanese Pocky and Kit Kats in new flavors are always appreciated. I also love English crisps which are rather hard to find. I'm a big fan of local specialties and sweet/salty or sweet/spicy combos.
  • International recipes in English (or French), either on cards, from magazines, books, etc.
  • Fashion magazines from any country, even if I can't read them.
  • I collect: chopsticks in cases, Barbie and Coca-Cola brand items, as well as Marilyn Monroe items (and cookbooks as previously mentioned).
  • Cell phone straps/charms.
  • I love coffee, tea (love chai), cider, hot chocolate...and all forms of fancy coffee drinks :) (prefer sugar-free though)
  • Anything related to astrology (Scorpio)
  • Anything Buddhist or with Buddha on it

Flakers!

KuroNeko on Dec 3, 2009:

Thanks! I use mysoju.com (that's the first site I ever found for dramas, I have memories with it, lol) but I haven't heard about the other too...I'ma definitely check 'em out :) YES! I'm so sad - I loved 2PM :( Is the song good though?? Ahh, Dir en grey. Can't live without 'em <3 I don't blame you...if I had to list 'em all, I'd never finish X)

KuroNeko on Nov 26, 2009:

That's so convenient! I'm too lazy to read the block of text on all the Asian celeb sites, so I'm usually totally out of the loop on the latest news & gossip, lol. Anything I should know? :x

I love the music! I love both soo much, I'm not sure which I love more. I guess both equally. :x Any particular fave bands of yours? And you DJ online? That's awesome :o

KuroNeko on Nov 26, 2009:

Is it any good? I've never heard of tv-links.cc before :o Aw, what happened with Crunchyroll? I only use it to keep track of everything, but I don't really trust it enough to actually watch 'em, lol. That's cute, how fun :) No one in my family's into that stuff, so I've got to throw "asian sleepovers" with friends every now and then, and we'll all be fangirls and pull all-nighters watching nothing but dramas and the movies, lol. Ooh, I love that movie! The leads are suchhh good actors. And I find it so cute how he talks in English and her in Korean :)

KuroNeko on Nov 24, 2009:

Same! I thought the hotness was only limited to Japanese guys, but when I started watching the Taiwanese and Korean dramas I found out I was so wrong. :P Like Lee Min Hoo~ Of course...Me and Veoh have become very good friends. LOL XP What sites do ya use? :P

KuroNeko on Nov 20, 2009:

Yay, another fangirl! Lol, I love Mizushima Hiro too <33 Now I'm tempted to stick him in the list...but pictures don't do him justice :x Did you watch Hana Kimi? He was so hot in it! And np, you have awesome taste in everything, I had to ^-^
