About Me

9/17/17: I am more or less caught up on rating all swaps, my apologies for not rating immediately as is usually my practice, but Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent flooding has really impacted my area. The good news is swaps seem to be back to normal on both the sending and receiving ends. :)

About me:
- 37 years old
- Houston, TX resident
- one awesome live-in boyfriend
- one awesome Boston terrier, Radar
- Scorpio
- water sign
- loves to travel
- progressive politically
- board game geek
- singing fanatic
- Zentangler
- never takes herself too seriously
- sometime-writer: zines, poetry, journalling, non-fiction, personal experience pieces, now working on a novel - admires Mr. Rogers, Margaret Sanger, the suffragettes, the unnamed fighters for abortion rights and reproductive freedom through the ages, Carl Jung, and Alfred Kinsey
-colors I prefer: rainbow! I can't choose just one. I am more into jewel tones if you need a palette, but I love color, the more the better so as long as it looks cohesive and colorful, I will probably adore it.
-top 5 fandoms: Battlestar Galactica (reboot), Firefly, Doctor Who (reboot), Vikings (History Channel), and generic steampunk.
-I love musicals. Most years, I try to get at least 1 subscription to a season of our local troupe's musicals.

I prefer non-tourist cards. I shouldn’t have to say this but if the card has a naked penis on it, rethink whether you and I have the kind of relationship where that is OK to send. If in doubt, do not send such a card, or at LEAST ask me for permission first.

Comment: Thanks so much for this PC. I laughed after reading that you thought it had to do with Native Americans and am truly honored that you wanted to find one that would mean so much to me. I appreciate the care that you put into what is just a postcard. You're incredibly thoughtful. ♥♥

Comment: Hi, Sorry for some reason I was under the impression you're German (!). My apologies once again for the late rating. I sent an e-mail this morning because I suddenly woke in the middle of the night and knew I'd seen your piece. Please accept my apologies, if I could make it up somehow, do let me know.

Comment: Thank You! Interesting PC! Thanks for the spell. It is beautiful. NOW I get a bit of an idea what it means in these swaps! It's the first Godess/Pagan related swap I have received, I was always curious. I will look up more on Persephone, it sure is intriguing.
