About Me

Pittsburgh resident -- child-free, non-religious (but fascinated by religious artifacts, texts, and history)

Somewhat non-conformist, but somewhat traditional, multipotentialite, feminist, plant-based, essentialist with a touch of magpie.

If you didn't receive something from me, please contact. I do not flake on swaps. If life gets in the way, I will message you and post to the swap board that I'm mailing late.

Favorite Movies

Hollywood classics are a favorite! Dinner at Eight, His Girl Friday, Auntie Mame, Charade, Stalag 17, Rebecca, and Sunset Boulevard, etc.

When it comes to modern films, I like a bit of atmosphere. In fact, I can forgive a multitude of plot sins if there is ATMOSPHERE. (I am looking at you, Crimson Peak!).

I like horror films, but I prefer the atmospheric ones -- Swallow, I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House, Rosemary's Baby, Rear Window, Darling, etc.

Other favorites: Amelie, The Usual Suspects LA Confidential, Ghost (with Casey Affleck), The Crow, Cold Fever

Favorite Books

I tend to read non-fiction about yoga, fashion, capsule wardrobes, beauty, and mindful/simple living/minimalism.

Your Beauty Mark, Eccentric Glamour, Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui, Buddhist Bootcamp, Escape from Domestic Perfection, and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up had significant impact on my life.

Fiction is a mixed bag, but I almost always enjoy mysteries (especially the British ones) and thrillers.

Favorite Television

Call My Agent (FR), Luna Park (IT), Queen's Gambit, You, Hollywood, Ratchet, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Agatha Raisin, Poirot, Peaky Blinders, Marvelous Mrs. Maizel, House of Cards (US), The Servant, Game of Thrones, Penny Dreadful, The Killing, Deadwood, Hannibal, Orphan Black

Favorite Music

Goth, punk, and alternative music from the 1980s-1990s!
Ministry, The Smiths, Morrissey, Sinead O'Connor, The Sisters of Mercy, Ghost, Cocteau Twins, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Gogo's (it pains me to add that incorrect apostrophe!), etc.

Metal, rock, traditional folk music, and singer-songwriters with beautiful voices -- Sarah McLaughlin, The Chicks, etc.

When I need to relax and prep for sleep, I listen to Takashi Kokubo or other deep relaxation music.

Yoga & Fitness

Yoga: Kundalini, slower Hatha flows, and Yin

Fitness: Pilates, Barre, Bellydancing, Ballet Beautiful, walking, hiking, and low-impact workouts

Favorite Crafts

Knitting

I love stationery and pens, vintage-style prints, steampunk, illustrated botanicals, floral, dark, gothic, and minimalist styles. I am not keen on the cutesy stuff, but I wouldn't rate down.

I just started a bullet journal. I am investigating hand-lettering and art journalling.

Comment: What a lovely letter! Thanks so much for a peek into your world. As you say, AZ has been pretty poor at getting this pandemic under control, but my family and I have been doing well--vaccinated, still masking up and avoiding big crowds. Thanks for the mention of the Katy Bowman book! It sounds really interesting. I'll have to ask my son and his wife if they know this one. He's a personal trainer and she is a physical therapist specializing in women's health issues. I'm betting she knows this source. I spent much of my time the last 18 months learning to play the ukulele. It's been a blast, and I'm getting pretty good. Not performance level for sure, but not aiming for that anyway. Just having fun. Stay safe and thanks again for the letter.
Response: You're welcome, Carol. You're learning to play the ukulele! That is fantastic!

Comment: Thank you for the nice card. I have Michelle Obama's book on my to-read list. I'm sure it's very good! The body alignment one sounds interesting as well. We went to St. Pete Beach this past June. Your trip to Lake Erie sounds nice and relaxing :) Take care!

Fun Friend Message #3

Hi! I’m Leyna. I love eating sweets, watching anime, and playing video games. I have two chihuahuas. They’re both very old but still very energetic for their age! I’m still pretty new to Swapbot but my favorite thing about Swapbot is finding new pen pals. I love getting mail and reading letters! Hope you have a great rest of the week!
