I find it so very difficult to talk about myself but I will attempt to overcome my fears. I am a wicked smart, funny, multi-talented ISTP, and despite my personality profile, quite creative. Maybe they intend artsy. I'm not. I do not enjoy opera or ballet even though I look fantastic in tights. Perhaps I confuse clever with creative.
I can in fact talk the hind leg off of a donkey, fix your computer,
build a rock wall, proofread your thesis, prepare a gourmet meal from soup to nuts, comfort the dying, fight efficiently and love you until you can't stand the thought of another man.
I enjoy skiing (alpine only, cross country is more exhausting than soccer, "My god, are we there yet!? What do you mean by 'we have to ski back now?' "), basketball, paddling my OC-2, scuba diving, lifting weights, cardio, and curling up with a good impact wrench to work on my lawn tractor. Yes ladies, I own a lawn tractor.
I like to serve a full bodied Cabernet with most of the meals I cook. White wine in a glass is not a favorite. White wine seems better paired with some sort of sea creature, scallions, garlic, and butter for my own tastes.
I know the difference between 'effect' and 'affect' and can properly use them both in the same sentence. Similarly, "your", "you're", and "yore" do not represent a challenge to me.
'Geography', 'History', 'Science & Nature', and 'Sports &
Leisure' are my better Trivial Pursuit categories. If we collaborate on those and you carry the load in 'Entertainment' and 'Arts & Literature' then we may be unstoppable. Otherwise, we shall both live our lives in ignominy.
I'm a huge fan of taking care of each other. Not as an obligation, but as a way of showing that you care, that you want to make each others lives happier. Small kindnesses every day mean a great deal.
I seek neither to control nor to be controlled.
