I used to be a minimalist, a side effect from moving frequently in
school. Now that I intend to stay put for a while, I’ve accumulated
stuff (including a light-bulb changing system). Things I’m addicted
to: books (my bookshelves reside in public libraries); jokes (I
have one and a half reliable sources, but could use a couple
backups); lists (even read a book called “Ten Fun Things to Do
before You Die”, written by a nun. Should have stopped at #6, when
‘thinking about nuns’ was suggested); sweets (two thirds of my food
pyramid, and the rest is caffeine); NPR (have 5 radios at home all
tuned to FM90. 9/89. 7. The 5th is a portable.); Podcast.
I'm looking for someone who is: witty, neat, reasonably fit, does
not count on winning the lottery as part of the life-improving
