About Me

Hello from BC, Canada! What to put here... I'm Alan, I'm a trans guy in my 20s, and I work as an accounting clerk. My main hobby is reading - I enjoy mystery/detective stories, scifi/fantasy, romance, and anything with a good sense of humour. I ride the bus everywhere and do a lot of reading there. Thank goodness for e-readers, otherwise I'd be lugging paperbacks around everywhere! Other than that I like cross stitching, doing jigsaw puzzles, and have recently been trying to learn to crochet. So far I have made two very lumpy hats. Any type of textile work fascinates me, and I love hearing about what projects people are working on. If you're working on something, feel free to write about it to me! I have a sweet calico cat named Good Kitty who loves laser pointers and warm spots, and have a definite soft spot for anybody else's pets. GK's sleeping on my legs as I type this. My love of post comes from when I would send cards to my grandmas, but since we all live in the same city now, we don't write as much. I joined swap-bot because I missed the feeling of checking the mailbox and seeing personal mail. I live with a good friend and her partner in a coastal city. There's quite a few parks and beach walks nearby, which is quite nice. Mail-wise, I love vintage or thrifted cards, nature themes, artwork, homemade cards, stamps and stickers of all types, and local or tourist-y postcards. I really do enjoy receiving any mail though, so don't feel you need to only send something that fits that list! My only request is please don't send me any religious-themed mail.

Comment: Hi Alan, I got your notecard on a dismal day and it made me very happy. I love Ursula K le Guin and to find her in your card was amazing. I have not heard about the other author. I think we get a certain perspective when we revisit a childhood story that we once read. I hope you are having a great time. Thank you for your card.

Comment: Thank you so much for your nice card and stickers. You have a way of writing that makes me feel like I was there. I love watching the cooking shows, too. My grandkids have fun doing their own 'Chopped' competitions and their creations do represent their personalities. Thank you for making my day so much brighter!

Comment: Thanks for the ugly postcard. Love the happy stickers! Fungi are fascinating. The only thing interesting I've seen this summer are cicadas, lots of cicadas and lots of cicada shells. They fall out of the trees onto your head!

Comment: Sounds like it was a lovely week! I would totally be excited about carpet cleaning, myself. Celebrate the small stuff, I say! Thanks for the beautiful card and sunglasses sticker(!) I have only heard of Nanaimo because of nanaimo bars, which I have not tried yet but is on my list. Have fun and enjoy your lemony carpets! :):)

Comment: Lovely postcard-the picture is beautiful. I did a double take on the poem because I instantly thought of the season as I read the title. It was a simply beautiful poem. I am going to look up more by Catherine Carter.

Comment: Your hometown looks and sounds wonderful! I understand the heatwave thing... here in Florida, that would be like us getting your Canadian winter weather. I love the sound of the ornament you are making for your aunt - she will love it! Right now, I'm just working on ATCs and other swaps. The recipe you sent, Nanaimo Bars, must be delicious! Not sure I can find custard powder here... but I will try. Have you ever made Millionaire's Shortbread Bars? My recipe is from YouTube,, but there are a lot out there.. make sure to get one that uses sweetened condensed milk for the caramel layer.. The two are similar recipes, but the bottom layer of this one is shortbread... the middle, homemade soft caramel. You should try baking some of those sometime!! Thanks for the lovely note and the brilliant recipe 😀 Cheers! Hope we swap again soon!
