I am reasonably intelligent, social, sarcastic, passionate,
considerate, curious and so much more. You too? I love the outdoors
as much as time indoors. I adore learning about people, and I have
a head full of utterly random information with no real practical
application (trivia night?!) I love a good bonfire (is there a bad
one?), singing in the rain... or shine, and I am grateful that I
enjoy my work - every day.
Family is important to me, and hopefully to you too.
Do you understand the word "pique" and can you use it
I am a whole person, complex and varied. I'm polite and considerate
to a fault, enjoy making people feel connected to each other, and I
love to laugh. Laughter is important!
I like good conversations and learning new things (I'd like to
learn why you chose to read this whole spiel! As these things go, I
find mine fairly unimaginative.)
What I’m doing with my life
A separated then divorced mother of two (23 & 25)... Currently
I spend most of my time working, slowly updating my recently
purchased home. I adore (make that 'crave') having my hands in the
dirt. I enjoy singing, adventuring (road trip?), entertaining (not
with my singing), and enjoying time with good people (family,
friends... you?) doing a variety of things. Concerts, museums, just
walking hand in hand makes me happy. I really want a partner to
share life with.
One day I want to take a long road trip and see all the odd little
out of the way places the US has to offer. I want to talk to
strangers and make them new friends, sing along to the radio at the
top of my lungs, see the worlds largest ball of twine, and touch a
giant redwood. Sound interesting?
I’m really good at
Paying attention. See? So are you.
Hearing. Listening isn't enough when the meanings are often found
in the silences.
I'm told that kissing is a strong suit of mine.
The first things people usually notice about me
On the phone, my voice. That's not to be 'smart'. I have a nice
voice and excellent phone manners. Speaking to people is one aspect
of my work, so I take it seriously.
In person... I guess my homework is to ask someone, or a few
someones and find out!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I don't read much fiction but there are a few: Stranger in a
Strange Land, Earth Path, The Accidental Buddhist, When God was a
Movies: My Fair Lady, West Side Story, Prelude to a Kiss, Steel
Magnolias, Secretary, Hysterical, The Guild, Yentl, Yes Man, Beauty
and the Beast... kind of all over the map!
Music: Don't get me started! Too many and too varied to even begin
to create a list!
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order...
My kids & Granddaughter
My family & friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to improve processes. Details. What ifs. Why do I really
dislike packing a lunch on work days?
Often, I wonder what others are thinking, and I wonder if they
wonder about my thoughts.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't think I have a "typical" Friday night! Could be anything
from staying home, to... working on/around the home, hosting a
gathering of friends, heading out for a concert, movie or dinner,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I pay my bills by paper check, with real envelopes and stamps.
You should message me if
You love a good laugh and know when it's appropriate.
You're truly, fully, completely Single.
You take "no thank you" at face value. You're friendly, social,
intelligent, fun... and you might enjoy getting to know someone as
varied and interesting as moi!
