They say the 3rd times the charm. I have had penpals twice before; but one abandoned LJ and the other has been super busy, so…here we go

Name: Machelle

Age: 27 - it was a painful reality check to realize after this year I would be closer to 30 than 20…sigh…wrinkles are eminent…

Location: Oklahoma

How do you identify? (sexuality/gender) I don't see the point in labels, but if I did it would be bisexual

Interests/hobbies: I love to read, write, doodle, watch my favorite old TV shows on dvd *cough*Golden Girls*cough*, and listen to music. I also go through crafty phases every now and then; I can crochet, knit, sew, and make bead jewelry. I love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have its own bullet point.

Favorite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. I love to read and the listing is crazy long, so here are a few that are in my “To Read” or “Reread” pile: Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; Perks of Being a Wallflower; Pride & Prejudice; Lover At Last; Prince of Thorns; Game of Thrones; Born in Fire; House of Leaves; City of Bones; Cinder; the Replacements; Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea; I, Robot; Odd Brother; Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; Wicked; White Queen. You can imagine my bedside table…lol. I read just about everything; and the invention of smart phones and tablets have saved me considerable money in chiropractor bills…lol.

Favorite films: Well, to start out, I collect lots of Disney or animated movies from when I was younger. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast; and then the list goes to Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia, so on and so forth…

My non animated movies favorites include: Noises OFF! <--best movie ever... Avengers; Skyfall; Iron Man 3; the Fast & Furious series; Last Holiday; Red Eye; Batman trilogy; LOTRs; Matrix movies; the Rush Hours; Sister Act; all Star Trek movies, old and new; Two Weeks Notice; The Holiday; Secret Garden; Little Princess; Murder by Death; Clue; Ten Inch Hero; Ocean's 11…the list continues

I love old school movies: Gidget; any Doris Day movie; Yours Mine and Ours, the one with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda; White Christmas; Movies with Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Cary Grant, or Rock Hudson; All of the Three Stooges episodes

I will quickly say that Sherlock and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows; and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men. So other TV shows I like: Charmed; Buffy; Angel; Fraiser; House; Law & Order, all variations; the Good Wife; Lost Girl (omg!); Glee; Chicago Fire; Switched at Birth; NCIS; Supernatural; Smallville; Xena; Hercules; Will & Grace; Reba; Sons of Anarchy; White Collar; Bones, Dick Van Dyke show, I Love Lucy, the Monkeys, Bewitched…la la la

Favorite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything, no really…Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals. Soundtracks. Also note that I need new music from the following: Florence & the Machine, Drake, Adele, Bullet for my Valentine, and the last one escapes me…but if you are in touch with any of these people, or their agents, please let them know of my need for new CDs ASAP. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

What would you like to send/receive? Emails. Letters. Postcards. Pictures. fun stuff.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from? Pretty much anyone 18+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to? Oh anywhere would be exciting as long as you speak English; unless you also speak French because I'm trying to learn...lol.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive? (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I am opposed to pretty much any food stuff.

What would be in your dream letter or package? The getting of a letter or email just makes me smile; so consistent responses would be awesome. I’m not talking about every day, though we can do that if we go the digital route; but I would like to keep this going for a while. I miss the daily, weekly, or monthly doses of happiness I get just from knowing someone took the time to reach out to me.

Anything else you'd like to add?: On my last post I had a random rant here about Youtube not having a repeat button; but that has since been fixed by someone who is unknown to me, but to whom I am forever indebted. If you type the word repeat inside the URL like this --> www."repeat"youtube.com/url without the " " it should repeat the video for you! Genius, huh?

Also, I'm a ginger. I thought I would give you fair warning in case you were worried about your soul.

Name: Rachel

Age: 21 (22 next month!)

Location: Salem, Oregon, USA

How do you identify?: I've been known to identify as a lesbian and as bisexual over the years but have recently concluded that I am, in fact, a bi-romantic asexual.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, photography, Minecraft, watching shows and documentaries on Netflix, anthropology, history (particularly WWII), and cooking.

Favourite books: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, Night by Elie Wiesel, Back Roads by Tawni O'Dell, Lamb by Christopher Moore, American Gods by Niel Gaiman, and The Hunger Games. I'm not a huge reader so discussions here might fall short.

Favourite films/shows: Pirates of the Caribbean, The Bourne Trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia series.. I'm honestly not much for films. I mean, I'll watch them, but I don't go nuts over them or anything. TV shows on the other hand? Supernatural, United States of Tara, Battlestar Galactica, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Twilight Zone, Unsolved Mysteries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Big Bang Theory, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, Roseanne, Dexter, Star Trek: TOS, Veronica Mars, and Downton Abbey. =D

Favourite music: My music taste is pretty boring since I'm not the type of person who needs music to live. But I do enjoy some indie/alternative, pop (mostly 80s and 90s), and classic rock.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, pictures, creative writing, journal entries, music/movie/show recs, music mixes, recipe exchanges, etc... I would prefer this would all be done via email for convenience and writing by hand kills my carpal tunnel.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I'm open to anyone, but I would especially appreciate asexuals and anyone within the 19 - 25 age range. All I ask is that they are consistent, open-minded, and that we have at least two things in common (always need a backup!)

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere is fine by me so long as their English is understandable. I'd especially enjoy a German or Scot. 

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Preferably nothing via snail mail.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Random discussions about anything and everything, recipe exchanges, creative writing or journal entries, music mixes, movie/show/music recommendations, rants, reviews, pretty much anything!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I do suffer from ADHD, depression, and anxiety and I am in therapy so I might talk about these things on occasion. If this makes you uncomfortable than please let me know beforehand. I don't want to be a downer for anybody!

Interests/hobbies: Coffee-making, coffee chemistry, coffee nerdery. Photography, in particular self-portraiture. Going to see lots of live music and gathering gumption to make my own. Riding my bike as much as possible. Learning the ins and outs of opening a business opening someone else's place, because I plan to open my own in the next year. Also, scouring thrift stores and flea markets for that lovely thing I can't pass up. Collecting: Raggedy Ann and Andy things, dead things, old things with charm, jewels of the costume variety, and records that are scratched but have fabulous album art.

Favourite books: How about authors instead? Jeffrey Eugenides, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Thisbe Nissen, sometimes Augusten Burroughs, Tom Robbins, Carson McCullers, Henrik Ibsen, Zadie Smith, Anita Diamant. I collect books impulsively, mostly from flea markets and thrift stores, mostly about art and artists, photography, essay collections, historical collections, feminist collections from the 90's (awesomely hilarious at times), classics that I should have read in high school or college but only skimmed to write the assignment. I love books. I would trade books, actually, if someone wanted to do that.

Favourite films: The Royal Tenenabaums (ok, all of Wes Anderson), Shortbus + Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Love Actually, all the Nova specials on Netflix, all the historical documentaries on Netflix, all of the bad crime dramas on Netflix. Revenge of the Nerds, the Harry Potters, Clerks, terrible 80s films starring John Cusack, Joan Cusack, or Jeff Goldblum, Weird Science, Labyrinth, Doctor Who (I have a problem).

Never too much.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from? Radical human beings... Probably 25+ in age, but I am not a stringent person.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to? Wherever, whenever.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive? That which might get me arrested?

What would be in your dream letter or package? Taxidermy, an awesome letter, a hand-crafted piece of jewelry utilizing found objects, a map of a town I've never been to, or basically anything. I get excited to get mail. Period. End of subject.

Anything else you'd like to add? I have a cat; her name is Booker.



This is at a work function two days ago, and no, I don't wear glasses. They were photobooth props...?

Favourite films: Hot Fuzz, Shawn of the Dead, Star Trek, O! Brother Where Art Thou, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Little Miss Sunshine, Spirited Away...This is actually a bit of a hard list because I don't really watch movies/like-like movies. I'm more of a television girl.

Ok, let's get this going. I had set something up with a would be pen pal several months ago, but she has since abandoned LJ. Sad days. Here's hoping this time goes better.

Name: Machelle

Age: Turned 25 in April

Location: Oklahoma

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) I don't see the point in labels, but if I did it would be bisexual

Interests/hobbies: I love to read, write, doodle, watch my favorite old tv shows on dvd *cough*Golden Girls*cough*, and listen to music. I also go through crafty phases every now and then. I can crochet, knit, sew, and my Mom is teaching me to quilt...though we may kill each other before it's all over... I also love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have it's own bullet point. Tattoos, I have three and have several more planned.

Favourite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. Anything by Amy Tan. I like pretty much all of Kim Harrison's and Laurell K. Hamilton's stuff. Gone with the Wind and Scarlett. I just bought Full Dark No Stars by Steven King, and the Game of Thrones. I'm in the middle of an amazing biography on Cleopatra by someone Schiff...I think. Love it. Also, I have the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks next to my laptop. I read just about everything and almost always have at least one book within reaching distance, even if it's just on my phone...Because let's be for real. Smart phones that double as e-readers? Best Thing EVER.

Favourite films: Oh. This is going to be all sort of trouble I can tell. Well, to start out, I love and collect almost any Disney movie from my childhood. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast, I was beside myself when it was re released this year. Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia! My non animated movies favorites consist of several trilogies : LOTR, Matrix, the Rush Hours. I also love old school movies. Gidget, any Doris Day movie, Yours Mine and Ours, the one with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda. White Christmas. Movies with Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin. And who doesn't love a good comedy or romcom? Sister Act. Two Weeks Notice. Last Holiday. The Holiday. Pretty much anything Sandra Bullock or Queen Latifah have done. This is getting ridiculous. Lets just say I love movies and leave it at that. I will quickly say that Supernatural and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows, and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men...'nough said. Oh! And don't forget musicals! Never could! Producers. Wicked. Cats. Rent. those are my favorites.

Favourite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything. No really. Lol. I used to qualify that with the statement that I didn't listen to rap, but my bf has decided that as a ginger, and the only white best friend she has ever had that I need some swag lessons...which are failing spectacularly, in case you were curious. So now I own and like a couple cds by Nikki Minaj, Drake, Chris Brown, and some other people that I just can't remember. Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals, I lump this in here because I have listened to more soundtracks than plays I have actually seen live, but I love them all. Fabulous stuff, this music that sings to our souls.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters. Postcards. Pictures. fun stuff.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Pretty much anyone 19+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Oh anywhere would be exciting.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I opposed to pretty much any food stuff. It tends not to make it to its destinations. I only know this because I sent a few care packages home from England when I spent a semester in the UK, and some of the candy didn't make it home. So, that means someone in Customs on the UK or US side grabbed a snack, bloody thieves. Just sayin'.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A letter that makes me smile and is full of heart felt words and empty of judgments.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Yup. Can anyone tell me why Youtube doesn't have a repeat button? Seriously. It would make my life sooooo much easier...no lie. Also, I should apologize for the ellipsis in advance...lol.

Name: Alice, legally - a thousand other things, informally. Most often, lately, it's been spaceman or simply E [for Eric, if it matters].

Age: Twenty.

Location: United States. New Jersey, to be specific.

How do you identify?: This will be a mouthful - homoromantic asexual genderqueer. I am a girl who prefers male pronouns [I am also partial to being referred to as 'dude' and 'bro'], but I'm not and never will be FTM. I like girls. That's about it.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, editing, drawing, roleplaying, playing w0w sometimes, studying astronomy - I work at a planetarium. I'm also partial to psychology and sociology, and languages; I'm currently learning Japanese. With editing, I'm the editor-in-chief of my college's student newspaper.

Favourite books: Anything by Poppy Z. Brite, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' [Wilde], 'After Dark,' 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' [Murakami]; there is a tonne more that I cannot remember for the life of me right now. Uh.. the current book that I'm re-reading is 'The Way of Shadows,' by Brent Weeks. I have a hard time putting it down when I need to.

Favourite films: Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, How to Train Your Dragon, Breakfast on Pluto, The Royal Tenenbaums, Watching the Detectives, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Johns, But I'm a Cheerleader!, Mysterious Skin, Let The Right One In.

Favourite music: Oh, god. Basically - Radiohead, Andrew Bird, deadman, Merry, The Decemberists, Rodrigo y Gabriela, The Mars Volta, deadmau5, Caviar, Paganini, Blockhead, and Gorillaz are some of my favourites. I also love Flight of the Conchords. However, the list goes on for ages and ages.. I'll listen to just about anything. I have a very eclectic library.

What would you like to send/receive?: Snail mail, e-mail, anything. Handwritten letters make me the happiest, however.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Everyone!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Everywhere! Bear in mind that my primary language is English, and while I'm going to be in Japanese III in the fall, I am nowhere near fluent enough to have confidence in my letter-writing skills. If anyone wants to help me, though.. :'D

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Uhh.. y'know, illegal stuff, dead things, etc. The usual. I'm allergic to coconut, in case we wind up sending each other care packages.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Long letters, drawings, mix CDs, little trinkets, uhh.. candy?? idk, man. Rainbows and giraffes and awesome things.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Stuff and things. I'm painfully awkward. It's nothing against you, if I'm shy for a long time. I really, really like giraffes. I also really like owls and crows. I adore This American Life. I'm interested in BDSM and kind-of-sort-of looking for a Dom. I am very good at doing what I'm told. I don't really like anime, but Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of my most favourite things in this universe. I have the worst sleeping habits ever. I can be pedantic and a bit of a jerk. My boss is my best friend. Elliot Smith makes me cry.

 Name: Jazzi

Age: 19 and 1/2

Location: Indiana

How do you identify?: I haven't quite figured this out yet.  I am female and closer to femme than to butch.  I am attracted to people who are intelligent, kind, and share my social and political values with little regard to outward appearance.

Interests/hobbies:  I like to knit, write, read (obviously), send obnoxiously full envelopes, record myself reading poems and poetry onto cassette tapes, draw badly, stare at the cute girl in my feminism class, and cuddle with people who are having a bad day.

Favourite books:  Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire; A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray; Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce; Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling; The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood; Possession by A. S. Bayatt; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova; Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; Full-Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti; Yes Means Yes by Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti; The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir; ... A lot of other things ...

Favourite films:  I haven't seen as many movies as I wish I had.  I love children's movies because I believe that the relationships are so much more believable, the humor is more light-hearted, and because I very rarely leave feeling badly about myself.

Favourite music:  I like music that is light-hearted and upbeat, generally speaking, especially folk.  Again, I am not as well-versed in music as I would like to be.  Some of the bands I listen to frequently include Mumford and Sons, Sunset Rubdown, Iron & Wine, Josh Ritter, Kimya Dawson, The Bird and the Bee, and Andrea Gibson.  (Does spoken word poetry count?  It has lyrics ...)

What would you like to send/receive?: I can knit hats and scarves, I write stories and poems for people, I make awful paintings, I tear things out of magazines, and I can record myself reading stories for you.  I'd like to send tangible letters and gifts, but I would also be okay with e-mail, since it's faster and more convenient for some people.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who is kind, has an interest in arts and/or politics, and wants to send and receive mail from me, naturally.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Any at all

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything with animal products:  I'm vegan

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Tea bags, lovely stories about someone's life, colorful photographs or paintings, small perfume samples, and genuine affection

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm very shy at first.  Please don't let that scare you off.

Picture: Yay, belly dancing!

:]

I'm kinda bored, so I figured I'd run through this again :D I'm really not big on letter-writing, since I'm kind of swamped with schoolwork and I'm really bad about sending things out in a timely manner (seriously, the only way we get rent in on time is because we send it in online XD), so I'm mainly just looking for email buddies and/or LJ friends :)
