One of those rare female engineers...so I end up being equally handy with tools and household repairs as I am with the cooking and crafting. Also, I'm currently trying to obtain (used postage) stamps for a craft. Heh.
I generally prefer handmade (anything), but I have no problems with store bought.
I'm back and rating.
Well, favorite genre is sci-fi/fantasy. I can't think of any favorite books, presently. Favorite authors would include: Robert Lynn Asprin, Janny Wurts, David Eddings, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, Mercedes Lackey, Jasper Fforde...
I have developed a new obsession! COMICS! I've always liked comics, but I found some indie comics that have awakened some fangirl-like tendencies in me (it's a bit disturbing to realize that I even have such tendencies, latent as they were). Primarily, Axe Cop and Dr. McNinja. Girl Genius is also quite good. You should probably check them out too (they all have a webcomic base so you can Google them).
Final Fantasy OSTs, Soul Edge/Blade and Soul Calibur OSTs, pretty much any gaming OST.
Not a big movie person, but if it's animated, if it's directed by Brad Bird, or if it's Pixar there's a much greater chance that I'll watch it.
