My name's Meredith. I've got three cats, a rabbit, an insane parakeet, and a little orange rooster with a major napoleon complex.
I'm currently without a computer and will be checking swap-bot from the library. So, if I don't respond to you right away, please be patient!
Here are a few of the things that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside... Bikes, long bicycle rides, things that are green (particularly that radioactive shade of neon green), squid, cephalopods in general, Tank Girl, writing, small chickens, acrylic paint, spray paint, paint pens, graffiti, making stencils, lovely and outlandish eye make-up (only the brightest of colors!), Dr. Seuss, the strange and paranormal, Andy Warhol, dumpster diving, parasites, Douglas Adams, squid, zombies, John Travolta, hawking big fat loogies, gore, rodents, Bela Lugosi, ugly art, gnomes, animal print, bunnies, skulls, chewing my nails, loud obnoxious music, mermaids, Banksy, trains, sunflowers, adventures, crows, and last but not least, making ridiculously awesome finds on e-bay. Oh, and did I mention squid?
I don't dig monkeys, cleaning, clowns, pale/pastel colors, dogs, landscape paintings, driving, angels/cupids, large groups of people (unless of course I'm at a show), eggplants (an adorable vegetable with an appalling taste), clothesline art, and that "I forgot to do something important, but I'm positive I didn't have anything important to do" feeling. Oh, and I also don't dig it when people give me elaborate and outlandish excuses as to why their swap is running late. Your postman didn't die, you didn't sporadically win a three week trip to Hawaii, it didn't get lost in the mail four times, and I really don't think you've had to tend to your neighbor's cancerous cat. If you fall behind, well, it happens to the best of us. Just tell me the truth. As long as you keep in contact and actually do send it out, I won't be too irked :)
