Artsy aging hipster mom who loves random mail. Kawaii/kitschy aesthetic, but I'm not into pristine collecting requirements. I believe in using the good china, so feel free to write on postcards or send a homemade whatever!
I have a home daycare and I enjoy crafting, cooking and gardening with kids as well as learning about educational issues and how we can get kids outside as much as possible.
I like to read, garden, run & be outside as much as I can. I'm a tea drinker by nature, coffee drinker by necessity. I keep an art journal and dabble in knitting, sewing and whatever other crafts come my way.
The Pogues, Cole Porter, Brandi Carlisle, They Might Be Giants, Sinatra, Moby, Squirrel Nut Zippers.
Little Women. I was an English nerd in a prior life. I've read the classics, love the classics, but postmodern criticism drove me away and I could never find the perfect job that would pay me to read for pleasure all day. I enjoy the occasional Maeve Binchy novel and I read the New Yorker every week. But nowadays I read how to books - crafts, cooking, gardening, teaching.
Amelie and It's a Wonderful Life
Mad Men, 6 Feet Under, Pushing Daisies, 30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Gilmore Girls. Quirky shows with lots of dialogue and a high probability of being cancelled.
Colors and flowers. Birds - peacocks, flamingos & owls. Elephants and pandas. Old advertisements. Humor of the sarcastic/satiric variety. I collect plastic snowglobes, teatowels, & Christmas ornaments.
I'll try anything once, but I don't like licorice, anise, or peppers.
