About Me

Lifelong nerd, geek

Single, no children, live with my rescue dog Dora the Adorable

Love fountain pens, nice paper, writing

Have an embarrassingly large collection of wax letter seals

Video games, tabletop RPGs

The first game I remember playing till the max score is pac-man. Currently playing Skyrim, Mario kart

Read a lot of books, minimum one a day if I can

Enjoy SciFi, fantasy, and mystery genres in book, film, and TV shows

Anime, manga from way back

Sagittarius, born in the year of the rabbit

Currently working in a technical field. I have worked as an IT network tech, NOC tech, call center operator, dog walker, various retail

Prefer black tea, but drink coffee as well. Prefer unflavored teas and coffee. Love rose and hibiscus teas, blended herbals but not Chai blends, love love love Chai but they give me migraines, same for ginger teas, like them but they don't agree with me

Like a good latte, if it's really good, plain, if it's Starbucks, it has to be vanilla to cover the burned taste

I am not religious and while I respect your religious beliefs, I have no patience for evangelism. Please refrain.

No Disney please, I have philosophical issues with their business practices. I don't even watch star wars shows now etc because of disney.

I'm sensitive to scented stuff, sometimes it's fine, sometimes it gives me a migraine.

Love stickers, have appreciation for the goth aesthetic but it's not for me, same for Sanrio

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Wizard (7th Level)

Ability Scores:







Alignment:Neutral Good

I've visited all but 2 of the states in the US, and all but 2 provinces in Canada.

I cook and bake, have even paid my way as a roommate by cooking instead of paying rent.

My best girl, Dora the Adorable

Favorite Crafts

Crafts so far: knitting/crochet: origami/kirigami, cooking, baking, drawing, painting, spinning, weaving, card weaving, beading, tatting, wood carving, metal smithing, plastic clay, cross stitch, felting, dyeing, sewing, quilting, sashiko, embroidery, ribbon embroidery, macrame, kumihimo

Currently mostly sashiko, crochet, and knitting

Favorite Music

I like just about any genre of music, obviously not all music is great but the only genre I don't like at all is polka.

Currently listening mostly to alternative, punk, and hard rock

Favorite Television

I watch TV but I also lived without one for 15 years.

Watch a lot of police procedurals:

  • Silent Witness
  • Columbo
  • Matlock
  • Elementary
  • CSI
  • NCIS
  • Sherlock
  • Endeavor
  • Midsomer murders
  • Criminal minds

Also anime, classic and current

Love Studio Ghibli and just discovered Molang

Favorite Books

Books. I read a lot. Switched to ebooks in 2000 after a move and hurt my back moving book boxes.

Mostly read scifi, fantasy, and mystery, but I really will read just about anything including the back of the shampoo bottle

Favorite book, The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley (my favorite since I was 12 years old)

Another book I read once a year is Dune, by Frank Herbert. I enjoy the themes, and even more so now, what the dangers of a charismatic leader can present, even with good intentions.

I'll read just about anything, although some horror I can't handle. I'm able to immerse myself into a book and it can get too real

Not a big fan of rape, either. Had to stop reading GoT and Outlander series because of this.

debbiespoms rated for Talk About Your Pets Letter Swap on Feb 22, 2023
Comment: Wow, What a wonderful pet letter you sent me! I really and truly loved every word you wrote about Dora the Adorable! It is just so heart warming, that man's best friend is a blessing and can get you through to the next day. That is how it is for me, with my male Chihuahua Jasper. He's my savior in every way and listens to me even if he can't understand some of the words. But just to know he does listen and that I can go on to another day without so many worries. And, Yet another "Wow" and thank you, for brightening my day with these gifts of teas, book magnet, and washi tape. Truly you didn't have to do that for me. But I appreciate you being so thoughtful and caring. Bless you! Please take care and have a wonderful day.
Response: Thank you :D :D :D Somehow I knew you would 'get' it, and please take care of yourself.
