It brings me great joy to snatch a friend or coworker's phone when
they aren't looking and set Michael Jackson's mugshot as their
wallpaper (I do this on people's desktops as well). I love the
sound of the rain when I'm going to bed. I believe that most
experiences brings us closer to self-actualization. I once
convinced someone that Rick Moranis actually played the male lead
in Basic Instinct. You never have to guess what I'm thinking or
feeling as it usually is flying out of my mouth and painted all
over my face. My dog sleeps in bed with me and this is
non-negotiable. As I get older I find myself having very little
tolerance for bullshit; life is way too short to put on a show. I
figure we are all messed up and wonderful in our own special ways
and our job is to love each other as wholes. I am highly
inappropriate, yet can mingle in the most professional ways. I love
to create almost anything. This weekend I'll be converting an old
end table into a dog bed. I'm emotional and comfortable with my
extreme emotions. I've had the same best friend for 20 years; we
still talk on the phone every day on our ways to work. I celebrate
people's differences. I've been told I have a strong personality,
which I never know whether to take as a compliment or an insult. My
bedroom is my sanctuary. My life's quest is to find the perfect
pillow. I'm an open book; my heart is on my sleeve no matter how
many times I promise to hide it under my pant leg. I can and will
bring humor into almost any situation. I don't understand why
people like "Two and a Half Men". I absolutely do not NEED a man in
my life. My life is very full, however I would love to find a true,
unconditional partnership with the right person.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a certified Child Life specialist. Our goal is to ease any
negative psycho-social side effects of hospitalization on children
through preparation, distraction, education, support and
cultivation of positive coping skills. I love what I do. Earlier
this week I had an awkward 12 year old boy hug me and say, "I'm so
glad you were here. I couldn't have done this without you." At the
end of every day I know I've made the world a little bit better.
I'm in the process of starting my own business. In between patients
I'm bantering with doctors and nurses. Let me tell you, people who
choose to work in Pediatrics are the most fun, inappropriate and
compassionate people there are! When I'm not at work, I'm trying to
keep my dog from getting gang banged at the dog park, having meals
with friends, painting or making some kind of art, camping,
attempting to make people believe outlandish things or sleeping. I
love sleeping. Oh, and I'm a little obsessed with orcas. I know
everything about them and dream of doing a week long kayak trip in
the Johnstone Strait with the northern residents.

The six things I could never do without
Friends and Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think this is a weird question. I think about everything and I'm
pretty sure everyone does. I think that at least 80% of thinking is
repetitive and non-productive; therefore, I work on NOT thinking. I
do often think about the state of the world and human kind and what
has become of us and whether we are really evolving or actually
devolving. Ugh, now I need to stop thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
No Friday is the same. Sometimes I'm wild and unruly and
misbehaving. Sometimes I'm in bed at 8pm.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not a private person, so I don't know what to say here. Oh, ha
. . . I had a dream the other night that I got in trouble at work
for the Michael Jackson mugshot shenanigans. Last night I walked my
dog at midnight in gnome pajamas.
