About Me

Back from an extended break while I got my life in order and my husband a job!

I'm nuri. I'm awesome. I don't like salad that much. I do however, like acorns and peacocks. I'm not very crafty myself but I love little crafts that others do. I'm a bath product junkie, enjoy dressing up funny (medieval and fantasy mostly -- urge to do victorian is rising) and I'm a bellydancer, leaning towards tribal style.

In more mundane matters, I work for a very large Insurance company as a Replacement Services Assistant. Which means, I get to quote and get discounts for peoples products. Before this, I worked for the bank associated with the same company.

Things I really enjoy: Peacocks Acorns Art Nouveau (particularly Mucha) Art Notecards and Postcards Recipes! Ribbon and Lace and feathers and shells Vintage and Steampunk inspired anything.

I'm not really a scrapbooker, but papercrafts seem sort of neat. I am gradually learning to have some artistic ability. It is a slow process.

I'm also a Dionysos and Hestia-oriented Hellenic Polytheist. I do not mind receiving Christian-oriented items, but they will be reswapped or found a home that will enjoy them more.

Favorite Books

The Sparrow by Maria Doria Russell, Dies the Fire by S. M. Stirling (and assorted sequels), Pride and Prejudice (with and without zombies), and the Temeraire series.

I also collect pre-1940s books and treasury collections.

Favorite Music

I don't have a favorite music type. I have random music that I listen to obsessively for weeks at a time. And then it changes. Recently: Bellydance Superstars compilations, Glee soundtracks, Great Big Sea, Medieval Baebes.

My favorite song, evidenced by my itunes playlist is Sarah Fimm and Beauty's Confusion: Be Like Water (Isolation Mix)

Otherwise, I listen to podcasts: Savage Love and a variety of NPR broadcasts. I love Wait Wait Don't Tell and have seen it live.

Favorite Movies

I can't sit through movies, I don't have an attention span.

Favorite Television

So You Think You Can Dance, The Big Bang Theory, Stargate and Stargate Atlantis, West Wing

The TV isn't usually on, but I have netflix and I'm not afraid to use it. Currently Watching through Netflix: all of Star Trek

Comment: What an unusual and interesting book! This is probably one of the most unique gifts I've ever received, and I love it!
Response: Thank you! I picked it up at a used book fair this year, and while I liked it a lot, I thought that it could use more love.

Comment: Thank you for everything!! Where did you get the pencil it is really cute? And just out of curiosity what exactly is the silver ribon attatched to the floral wire? I'm sure I can use it, just not sure what it is? Thank you again!!!
Response: I got the pencils years ago at a "Too Cool" store which was FULL of Japanese and Korean character items. The ribbons are technically tassels, but I think they'd be neat in all sorts of things.
Comment: I'm so jealous of the kawaii shop ! We have nothing even like it on the whole continent.
Comment: Thank you! This is a wonderful and I LOVE the bread recipe. So very yummy!
Comment: Thank you for the comment.

Hello Nuri!

Welcome to swapbot! I, too, love bath products and dressing up. I like experimenting with styles (: And I have always been intrigued with bellydancing but never had the guts to try it haha.

Have a wonderful day!

Welcome to Swapbot! I used to do Egyptian bellydancing. I love watching tribal and tribal fusion too - the dancers have so much control :-) My younger brother is in insurance too. He's an underwriter. Hope to see you around the 'bot >-<
