About Me

I live in California, in a city named after an alcoholic beverage.

I'm a 29 year old in the middle of a career change...or maybe a midlife crisis, depending on how you look at it. But I'm the "glass is half full" type; or, following in the footsteps of my namesake: The sun will come out tomorrow...

I look young for my age, which can be a blessing in disguise...except when I'm carded purchasing lottery tickets. I used to be a dog person, until adopted by three cats (each cat came separately, so they're not getting along). I have pack-rat tendencies and cannot pack light.

I love office supplies but I really dislike being stuck in a cubicle or doing monotonous office paper work. I'm a Gemini AND a twin, and was born under the year of the horse.

Favorite Music

I'll listen to almost anything, but heavy rap and country in moderation only. I love contrasts, like having a full string orchestra in a rap song, or finding a mundane sound (fax machine, dial tone, clicking on the keyboard) incorporated into a melody. I love being able to enjoy sounds from different genres and songs that mix or cross genres.

Last purchased: A Good Day - Priscilla Ahn The Hotel Cafe Presents: Winter Songs (various artists)

Favorite Movies

FRIVOLOUS DANCE FLICKS (Strictly Ballroom, Mad Hot Ballroom, Shall We Dance - Japanese version, Billy Elliot, etc).

Shawshank Redemption, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Beat My Heart Skipped, Amelie, Abril Despedaçado, The Italian Job (remake), The Office, School of Rock, Babel

Favorite Television

Summer TV shows: Mad Men

Wish List

All sorts of paper/ paper goods / stationary, journals, handmade journals, scrapbook notions, Swedish Fish (candy), birds theme, green tea, patouchi oil, retro 50s images, food porn, red/black/white color pairing, postcards, postage stamps, rubber stamps, ribbons and yarn, stickers, compact pens, sakura pens, cat toys, butterflies, ladybugs, lip gloss, heart themed items, side of the road sunflowers

Comment: Loved the drawings, notes and everything, the swedish fish are really good too! I drink tea too, but thats because coffee is too bitter for me.

Comment: Annie-- Too bad there's only an option for 1 heart. Your package made my day. Your drawings were lovely and the notes were really nice! (Where did you get the coffee? It had some Asian characters on the label which might be my favorite part!)
Response: Thanks for the reply and the heart! The coffee is from my local Asian grocery store, hence the Asian characters on the label.

Comment: Thanks for the song! I definitely wouldn't have played that at my wedding unless there was some sort of heartbreak triangle that my fiance knew about... or something. Still weird.

Comment: Funny that the artist says people want him to play this at their weddings, when it is so clearly lyrics for a heartbreak song. That just shows that people don't listen to the words. Especially the "old friendships fade away and love falls apart".

Comment: What an amazing package you sent!!! The extras were totally not necessary as your box was so much fun to go through, but they are totally loved and appreciated:) I'm so envious of all the travel and adventures you've had over the last months. Congrats on finishing school soon and thank you so much for sharing some happiness with me!
