About Me

My Name is Caitlin, but i prefer to go by Cate. I've not been on the site for a while due to life getting busy but realised i missed it a lot.

I love animals and have a 3 cats and 2 dogs right now, but i really love to collect elephants. Anything with elephants on it is awesome, pictures, stickers, figurines, whatever you can find.

I am 25 and lesbian, I live in South Australia.

I have a bachelor's degree in behavioural science with honours in sociology (i did a combination of psychology and sociology). I absolutely love sociology and would love to go back and do a phd in it.

My favourite colour is purple and the only colours i don't like are orange and brown. I love penpalling, and anyone who'd like to be either snail mail or email penpals with me is welcome to comment.

A few other random things... i love chocolate (currently attempting to go sugar free for a short time to remind my body that good food is good for you) but i don't like chocolate icecream or chocolate cake. I love glitter and anything sparkly. I also like all that tortured soul, depressive type stuff. I love history especially anything related to World War II. And i also love everything to do with the Titanic.

Favorite Music

I love my music and i'm always looking for new stuff to listen to. At the moment my music has been somewhat hijacked by my fiancee who doesn't listen to much except pop. The only things i'm not really interested in are rap, metal and screamo.

I've just deleted my entire favourite bands section because it turns out i don't listen to much of it anymore except for Missy Higgins... oh well.

Favorite Books

I wish i had more time to read but i'm so busy that i don't really get a chance anymore. Even so, i try to find time, and i usually read on the bus.

I am a Harry Potter fan through and through (my favourite character is Tonks). I also loves the Bones books by Kathy Reichs, the Tomorrow Series by John Marsden (actually anything by John Marsden), Obsession by Julia Lawrinson, Death's Daughter by Amber Benson. I love Michael Crichton, and a lot of lesbian authors especially Georgia Beers.

And heaps of standalone urban fantasy.

Favorite Movies

Hmm... bear with me, it could be a long list, but i'll try not to get too extensive. I love thrillers and horror (even though i mostly just find horror funny). But i love drama and romantic comedies just as much.

I still love my Disney movies, pretty much all of them. Absolutely fell in love with a lot of the new animated movies not just disney though.

Anything with Drew Barrymore, Amber Benson, Alyson Hannigan. Pretty much all of the Marvel movies. All the old romantic comedies (notting hill, pretty woman etc), the saw movies.

Favorite Television

I think i'm a bit of a tv nut. I love it. Most of the shows i like aren't even on anymore but i don't love them any less (i have pretty much all of them on dvd).

Hmm... let's see... Stargate SG-1 (Atlantis and Universe just don't compare), MASH, NCIS, Moonlight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel is okay too), Bones, Gilmore Girls, SVU, X-Files, Men in Trees,the Nanny, the L Word, Castle, Dollhouse, HIMYM, Modern Family, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, Agent Carter, Doctor Who (Amy Pond is still my favourite), Zombie Nation... plenty more i can't think of right now.

Comment: Sent later than promised so I took a minute to think about how I would rate this...but in the end you did send a creative package with some obvious thought put into it and you communicated with me early on, which I really appreciate. I absolutely LOVE the cross stitch (totally worth the wait by itself!), the newspaper and books will be fun to read, and I'm excited to finally have my own little sonic screwdriver :) Your note was awesome, very creative, and the custard mix cracked me up. One last small note, please skim your partner's profile (even if it's not a profile based swap) for "do not send" items, especially if you are sending extras. I had "please no food/candy" on my list and one of the snacks you sent was expired (which is the main reason I put no food on my please-don't-send lists lol, slip-ups happen, no harm, just something to consider).

Comment: Thanks for the story -- NEVER apologize that something is "depressing" -- well written pieces are always good whatever the theme. Thank for the tea, I've never had that flavor.
Comment: I got your swap and OMG I LOVE IT! Thankyou!! Your cross-stitch is amazing! And the short story whilst a little sad was really good! And the lil Cap itty Bitty! I loved all of it thankyou so much! :)
Comment: Thanks so much for a wonderful letter. I love that you used the little notebook. Great idea. I'm going to check out some of the books you recommended - I really like finding new authors to read. Thanks again and Happy Swapping!

AND just today when I was checking out a host to see if I wanted to join her swap I saw you rated her a 3 for not meeting swap requirements. However, when I looked at said swap the "requirements" you said she failed on were specifically listed in the swap description as not required. That is an incorrect rating and cruel.

removing you from beginner's cross stitch; too many recent 1s

Hi! Did my ATC for the A Little bit of love wishlist ever arrive? I sent out two envies that day (over four weeks ago) and haven't heard about either...I'm a bit worried something happened to them :-/
