I am a visual artist in many ways -- graphic designer and photographer professionally. (Just started my own business!! Eek!) I used to do pottery, and still make jewelry & have a lot of interest in interior decorating & in general just making my life visually interesting.
I'm a pretty accomplished cyclist -- I'm not super fast racing material, but I can ride for long distances & generally do pass most people on the bike trail.
I tend to read fiction mostly -- some favorite authors are Barbara Kingsolver, Christopher Moore, Bill Bryson, etc. A few all-time favorite novels:
The Bean Trees - Barbara Kingsolver
The Princess Bride - William Goldman (yep, the book, though I adore the movie too)
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer
The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell
The Harry Potter books (Yep, really. Read them three times. If you have a problem with that, we probably won't get each other. :} )
Favorite movies -- Pixar can do no wrong, I love them ALL. Other faves include Field of Dreams, The Guru, Waking Ned Devine, Cinema Paradiso, Sound of Music (hey, it's a classic! and I'm a singer!). I like everything from comedies, to drama, to foreign films -- not big on slashers & violent films in general are tough for me.
TV - lately, into How I Met Your Mother. Also a fan of Project Runway (my only reality tv vice, although I occasionally get sucked into the singing shows). And of course I love Glee! Because, duh, I'm a singer! :) The Firefly series was awesome, and loved Star Trek TNG back in the day. Will & Grace, Ugly Betty, Friends...etc.
Food -- I was a vegetarian for 20 years, but recently started eating meat again for health reasons. Particularly love ethnic foods -- sometimes I think I could almost live on Indian & Thai alone.
Great food (I'm not a total foodie, but love to cook, entertain, & eat)
My amazing family and friends
My beautiful, spunky daughter
I've also been thinking lately about how I really don't fit into any boxes. I have blue hair, but I'm not a punk rocker. I'm not a geek or a nerd, but I'm not a hipster, either. I'm bubbly, but also down to earth. Sometimes I feel like I don't fit in anywhere, and sometimes I feel like I fit in everywhere. I guess I just defy definition. :)
You consider yourself to be adventurous, optimistic, and fun.
You are artistic or musical.
You love bicycling -- I need somebody to go riding with! (I mostly do road biking myself, but will consider mountain bikers, also. ;} )
You love all sorts of cuisines & trying new restaurants. (Bonus points if you're a vegetarian and/or love chocolate.)
You are affectionate, sensual, and passionate. (Ideally, in combination with some of the above features.)
If you are a Renaissance man, and/or defy definition. :)
