About Me

If you happen to have any Boston terrier postcards or any talent to draw one, I'd be thrilled to receive them, especially since my buddy of 8 years just joined the throng on the Rainbow Bridge.

My watchword is whimsy. I'm a 38 year old newly married (June 2, 2018) Houston, TX resident. Recently lost my beloved Radar, Boston terrier on 7/31/18. He was a great friend and companion and my heart is broken. I am mostly here to swap postcards, but I may sometimes join other swaps if they capture my fancy.

Other things to know about me:

  • progressive politically
  • board game geek (perpetually in need of update)
  • reader, writer, editor, singer
  • rarely takes herself too seriously
  • some people call me a hipster, but it’s just a coincidence that I like what hipsters like

Things I’m Really Into For the Moment:

Red Bull Purple, The Myths and Legends Podcast, The History Chicks Podcast, Love Nikki clicky game, avoiding writing, Posh beauty products

Swapping Philosophy:

It is important to rate appropriately and follow through on one’s commitments, even if it’s just a postcard. It becomes less fun when those who feel differently somehow wiggle out of their obligation to which they chose to commit.

Swapping Preferences:

Postcards: Naked, stamped with real stamps, and non-tourist is preferred; handmade is always welcome unless prohibited in the swap details; if the swap requires multiple cards in an envelope then please send as per the swap requirements

I always include on items I sent out the date, the name of the swap, and my username. I recommend you do the same. I sometimes include weather, tunes, mood. LMK if those are important for me to write on a card I send to you.

Don’t Know What To Write?

I love to hear about unusual names you’ve heard/seen/read; tell me about what you would be patron saint of if you were beatified; write me a piece of flash fiction or haiku based on the front of the card; bullet journal your day; list what you ate/drank today; what is on your shopping list?; what are the last 5 songs you’ve listened to?; what podcasts are you really into?; what is your substitute cuss word when littles are around?; tell me a ghost story or legend from your area; if all else fails, copy out a quote or poem that you think might catch my interest.

Favorite Music

The Wailin' Jennys, Dar Williams, Brandi Carlile, Girlyman, The Nields, Fiona Apple, The Mavericks, musicals/showtunes, Amy Winehouse, Dave Matthews Band, The Decemberists, The Dresden Dolls, Fleetwood Mac, Fun, Garth Brooks, Guster, Jimmy Buffet, Justin Timberlake, Lily Allen, The Monkees, Pink, Regina Spektor, System of a Down, Tegan and Sara, some current pop music

Favorite Television

Star Trek, Firely, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, MASH, Lost Girl, House of Cards, Vikings, Survivor, Amazing Race, Orange is the New Black, Dual Survival, Naked and Afraid, Swamp People, and any survival show, Orphan Black, 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, DIY/fixing up houses TV shows

So sad to read about your pup. Dogs are one of life's greatest blessings.

VivaLaDiane on Aug 11, 2018:

But there aren’t many people I’d circle jerk with. 🖤🖤

VivaLaDiane on Aug 11, 2018:

YOU are one of the greatest humans ever on Earth. You’re kind, funny and talented. I am humble to be thought of so much and so lovingly. I am honored.

VivaLaDiane on Aug 8, 2018:

I'm so not worthy but I'm most definitely grateful. I wish I had a million dollars to give you every time you randomly make me smile. Sometimes lately, there aren't many of those days so I can't ever really thank you enough. ♥♥♥

kiddomerriweather on Aug 5, 2018:

Thanks for the PC. It was neat to see your invitation/creation that you used for your wedding. Super cute!

Whippet on Jul 29, 2018:

Urgh - August, Woof, the Dog Days of Summer here...we're chillin' with Whip-Whip-Whippet - Good! You helped to cheer me during my "down months" with great PC in my mail box. Shared it with my mom. We smiled. Then my sister's dogs asked for threats...they see me "Aunt Kathy," with treats, toys, hugs, walkies, yummy meals, & slurp of milk. Waggy tails happy.

VivaLaDiane on Jul 24, 2018:

Ever the risk taker, the belt weaver naked PC made it to me and is now on my desk at work. You are such a wonderful asset to this community and I am so lucky to have been paired with you as a partner and to benefit from your RAKs. You really have touched my heart more times than you'll know. Thanks just isn't enough to say, but it's a start. You're a doll. xoxoxoxo♥

laurieburkett17 on Jul 21, 2018:

Hey, the postcard was a "just because" surprise so no rating required and no you didn't forget anything. :)

squince on Jul 10, 2018:

Ahhhhhhhh I am obsessed with the Mister Rogers card. I'm going to hang it at my cubicle!

susieq11 on Jul 6, 2018:
