About Me

12/26: Just got a message from a partner that I did a resend to, she finally just got the original postmarked a month to the day from when she actually received it. I believe the issue is when the mail hits the North Houston distribution center, as it is where all my package issues have happened and where mail seems to take forever to be sorted. If it seems like it's taking a long time for something to arrive, please let me know and I will resend!! I always send on time, just know it can take up to two weeks for my letters to get from Texas to my sister and grandmother in Virginia! I have also noticed my postal carriers pick up times range from 10am to literally 10:30pm. I have NO idea why, so my send date is always the date I place it in the mailbox, not necessarily when she picks it up if it's a day late on the postmark!!!

If you ever don't receive a swap from me in a timely manner and I haven't messaged you, let me know and I will resend immediately!!!!

If I haven't rated you and it seems like an inordinate amount of time has passed, please please contact me! I'm usually in the maximum amount of swaps at all times, so one may get overlooked every now and then, but I do my best to keep my unrated in a separate folder!

I am a 31 year old living with lots of health issues, I love talking to other people who have chronic pain and health issues as well! Spoonies unite!

I am called "unique" all the time. I have 10 piercings, 10 tattoos and pastel pink, mint and purple hair, but am Christian (but not preachy)! Being disabled there's only so many forms of exercise I can do, so I love aerial yoga and swimming, it makes my body feel like it's free to move for once in my life. I eventually want to be strong enough to do aerial silks and lyra, as well as learning poi, tightrope, juggling, circus arts, as it were!

I love volunteering in my free time. I am involved two faith based ministries, one is a therapeutic equestrianriding program built specifically for children with special needs to help work on their PT/OT/conversation skills, multi-tasking, etc. The second is a pet therapy ministry where we take our certified therapy dogs to facilities like nursing homes, a teen psychiatric facility, hospitals and have several reading mentor programs as well!

I'm alsp an animal lover, I have two cats, Pepper (passed away his birthday, 10/31/18) and Cinna, a leopard gecko, Luna Rose Khaleesi Lovegood and Thackery Binx and Raven Darkholme my two sugar gliders!

Angels and flakers.

Angels:

@ksperline90 Angeled for We love Washi!

@art3osb due to my partner not sending swap requirements angeled me some street art photos!

Flakers: @katiedid flaked on We love Washi and lied twice about it.

Had to angel two packages for Stocking Stuffers #1, not going to tag these girls, because I think they may both be legitimately ill, they're both rated nothing but 5's when they joined and then dropped off swap-bot.

@SaffyDuckSW flaked on Disney Princess Postcard International on 3/31/17 as a newbie.

Ultimate Wishlist

My Tiny House wishlist! There are lots of reasonably priced items on it!

https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1U0BKWXL5DB2H?ref=wlshare

Dislikes

Please don't send candy (unless its Thorntons or Cotton Candy) or food, tea is just fine, just no solids please! I almost exclusively eat only meat and cheese and am in ketosis, so it's best I just not have it near me!

Circuses, I hate the forcing of endangered animals to perform for people.

Anything that smells like cigarette smoke!!!! I am extremely sensitive.

Anything demonic/Satanism related (unless it's a really funny joke about hell or if hell is being used in a sentence I don't mind that, I am Catholic and curse like a sailor after all), anything with REAL gore, (cartoon zombies and things like that are fine), anything anti-religious (i.e. something that's making fun of someone's religion or being disrespectful), anything that makes fun of anyone else, especially people with special needs.

I also really dislike Rick and Morty and South Park. Sorry, it's just not my kind of humor. I do enjoy Archer and Family Guy every now and then.

Comment: Your party GoT weekend sounds like a blast. Here a local B&B has a monthly passport dinner series. They pick a destination and cook a meal inspired by the foods and culture of that destination. This month the destination is Westeros! It is a fancy four course with cocktail pairings but my favorite course is Arya's Meat Pie (not human meat) lol
Response: That sounds awesome!!!
