I enjoy my life, strive to live it stress free and mostly succeed. I have manners, a good sense of humor, an accurate moral compass, all of my hair and teeth, good credit, and I've never been read my rights! I'm smart enough to know how much I don't know. I value cooperation, respect, and loyalty. I feel good doing nice things for people, and am easy to please without being a pushover. I'm not afraid to make decisions, I have opinions and know how and when to use them, but usually find myself content with the way things develop. I like a good debate without getting to argumentative. I'm very patient with a long fuse and am good at not sweating the little things.
I'm sure that like most people I have too many interests and not enough free time to pursue them! Mostly I like to read, watch TV and movies. I don't think TV is evil, I think you do have to sift through a lot of mindless crap, but there is plenty of quality programming available. Actually, better to let others do the sifting for you! I love to cook and eat good food. I'll go see the occasional band I'm a lifelong Mariners and Seahawks fan, at the very least I get to a few M's games every year. I like road trips; eastern Washington, Idaho, Oregon. I'd get on a plane more often if I had someone to do it with! Probably my favorite hobby is genealogy and related endeavors. Collecting ancestors, their stories, old family photos, and exploring their historical context. I subscribed to Ancestry.com long before their insane marketing blitz started. I recently made my first foray into genetic genealogy, sending my DNA and that of some strategically placed family members for analysis.
I've started running every day and have been eating more sensibly the last few years. I've lost 25 lbs., and would like to lose another 10-15. I hiked a lot when I was younger, I would like to do more in the future.
