My self-summary
I was born and raised in Arizona. Ultimately speaking, I'd love to live there when I retire unless a nicer place comes along in my travels. So far, there's no place like home.

I just got back from a year in South Korea. When I got back, I realized just how amazing our dry heat is, whereas South Korea is so humid in the summer you simply have to live covered in a thin layer of sweat, and when you take a shower in the morning, your towel is still wet that evening. Foreign concepts, the both. Finally, I also didn't understand how much I appreciated our clean air here in the states, when over there on even a rainy day or a cold wintery blizzard day, the air still smelled like farm fields and whatever they're pumping into their air. Keep in mind, every city there is surrounded by farms, and they use the real stuff for their fertilizer

I went to school at Arizona where I picked up a bachelors and a masters and then discovered the disconnect between the idealists in academia and the realists in the outside world. I also found out that my degrees were immaterial towards finding either a good job or a richer life. I am now employed by a large organization and kicking myself for not joining sooner. They pay for my life, unlike the myriad of jobs and work that preceded in my prior life. The kicker? I did not need a college degree to get my present position, and yet I will make more than I ever could with a degree when I part ways with my current company. Perplexing, indeed...

I love the crossword...and Sudoku...and I always have a project going, somewhere.
What I’m doing with my life
Anything and everything that strikes my fancy. and eagerly awaiting the point in my life called RETIREMENT! 14 more years to go! :P
I’m really good at
Finding the silver lining and laughing about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm attentive, and I listen, and I love a good joke.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All time favorite list: Watership Down, The Hobbit, Catch-22, The Education of Little Tree, Calvin & Hobbes, Shel Silverstein, Roald Dahl...

Movies: anything, though I generally avoid horror.

I am an omnivore.

Unless I am what I eat, and since cows are vegetarians, I am a vegetarian.

I can listen to almost anything, within reason. When it sounds like a dying cat bemoaning it's dreadful wasted existence while raking its claws against a chalk board, I generally avoid it.
The six things I could never do without
Arizona
Good People
Good Food
My Family
My Truck
The Movies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. I haven't known boredom since the Reagan Administration. I said I was bored one day around 1987 and they made me do chores until I wasn't bored any more.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing anything but work unless its a project at home!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may be deathly ascared of the poisonous types of snakes, but I have no fear of spiders.
You should message me if
You are a strong, confident, independent woman, you know what you want out of life, and you aren't above going out and getting it yourself if you know it's what you want. And you have patience, for patience is the finest virtue I have learned in this life.
