About Me

My day job is code monkey, but my favorite hobbies are low-tech.
 
I love postcards! Six-year-old me would be so. proud. of my collection. Sometimes when I need to feel quiet and calm I sort my postcards into different subcollections based on theme.
 
I crochet off and on and I've been at it again lately, working on a bunch of Star Wars amigurumi. I tried knitting but it was wayyyy too difficult for me. At least with crochet it's easy to rip out my mistakes.

Favorite Books

I'd like to write something that makes me look smart, but the truth is that I'm working my way through all the Star Wars new canon novels and graphic novels.

Favorite manga: Space Brothers, Attack on Titan, Saturn Apartments, Neko Rahmen, Ojisama to Neko, Bread & Butter

Favorite Television

The Handmaid's Tale, Game of Thrones, The Blacklist, The Walking Dead, The X-Files, Firefly, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Into the Badlands, My Cat From Hell.

I also like anime, although I don't watch as often as I'd like. My favorites are Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Uchuu Kyoudai, Attack on Titan, and Panty & Stocking.

Comment: Thank you. The postage stamps mix was/is cool. I looked up Poky. I want to try it. I am crazy about pecan pie. Maple fudge sounds yummy. I have to resist buying gummy candies every time I see them. Not a big fan of sour though. Happy healthy holidays.

FemShep is the BEST rolemodel ever. EVER. I mean, in the Crucible at the end, she hears Hackett and it's all "What do you need me to do?" I mean, she's already done everything! cough Anyway, yeah, who wouldn't want to be FemShep? I think even my husband would want to be FemShep. Hence why my next tattoo is going to be the N7. Also, looking at your profile, I think we might be kindred spirits.
