About Me

10/23/17-Everything is caught up! I am back to swapping.

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.

Comment: Thank you for researching and typing out all those local stories for me! Very interesting! I had heard of La Llorona and wrote a little about her in my graduate thesis that compared old stories with urban legends. I have also heard another Latin legend about someone at a dance who later saw that their partner had hooves and they had actually danced with the Devil. Cool stories, thanks again!

Comment: It is always so good to find you at my mailbox! Thanks so much for the great PCs you chose for the wacky holidays of October. I really like the One Great Leap for Mankind - I remember that very well when it was televised on TV. I was living in Boston and watching TV on a little B&W TV when the show was interrupted - what a big accomplishment that was!! Thanks again for the great PCs ~~
