About Me

I try everyday to be a decent human being.

I work as a logistics coordinator sending rail trains across North America, though my degree is in English literature. I planned to go into folklore studies in graduate school, but life got in the way. I may eventually find my way to graduate school but for now I read and collect.

I am engaged and have a 4 year old kiddo in my life who calls me stepmommy. He likes alligators and crafts. We have a project to work on each time he is with us.

Favorite Crafts

I love love love working in my visual journals, which are filled with written words (poetry, ideas, and thought entries) and visual representations of my current feelings and circumstances.

I make cards for loved ones and for pen pals, create yearly planners for friends and family, make jewelry, and practice very simple photography in everyday life.

I love folklore so if you have a local story you'd like to send, it would likely get you a heart!

I make and collect ATCs and inchies.

I love postcards with little messages on them. I like the strange ones best (no postcards of hotels, homes, or statues unless they are very odd, please). If you are able to, always send handmade cards! But please send naked and stamped.

Favorite Books

I love almost anything by Kurt Vonnegut, Neil Gaiman, Joseph Heller, or Tom Robbins. I've read enough of the classics to know that I enjoy the absurd situational humor of contemporary literature more than the dry dialogue based humor of canonical literature. When it comes to the classics, I like dystopian fiction such as Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, and 1984. I also truly enjoyed all of Anne Rice's books.

Favorite Movies

I'm a fan of action movies, especially cheesy ones from the 80s and 90s or the ones with actors from them. I especially like First Blood, Terminator, Predator, and Alien. I also like parody movies, such as those by Mel Brooks from around the same time. Examples are Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Dracula Dead and Loving It, and Men in Tights.

A Few of My Favorite Things

Natural gemstones (black tourmaline is my favorite but opal is my birthstone), Owls, Cats, Trains, Witches, Myths, Legends, Fairy tales, Flowers, Jewelry charms, Poetry, Skeletons/Skulls, Old photographs, Stencils, Lists, ATCs, Postcards, Handmade cards, Peppermint, Pinup style, Old floppy disks (the actual floppy kind), Vintage anything, Loteria (Mexican Bingo), Foreign coins, Candles, Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Milagros, Stars, Cool office supplies, Buttons (Badges), Coffee, Herbal teas, Washi tape, Planners, Blank notebooks, Maps, Glass or Wooden Beads, Dark chocolate, Scraps of other people's used paper, Anything interesting or unique, Something you made!

Things I Don't Care For

Black teas, angels, lip gloss, cigars, Disney characters or themes, anime, anything overly cutesy, plastic beads, fabric (I don't sew)

Favorite Colors

Purple! Blue, Black, Dark Brown, Red, Gray, Green... Mostly I just don't like pastels.

Favorite Television

Disenchantment on Netflix, Justified starring Timothy Olyphant, Succession on HBO, and shows like Real Time with Bill Maher and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

My all time favorite show will always be Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Comment: Thanks for the great PC. I have flown in a biplane like that one. You seem to be in a position to request a cab-ride on a freight train. I recommend it. I hope everything is okay with your test results.
