Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(try and overlook my awkward writing style)
I am a tad simple and not an extroverted sort of person.... but
still.. I wouldn't say I get troden over easily ;)
It could be Canadian politeness that masks a dangerous Greek low
boiling point. (there must be a better way. am working on that last
bit.. that's why I'm trying to understand Buddhism see?), the
'euro' streak covers about 43% of me, at least. PS. I am here on a
VISA, so please marry me. ;)
If I don't have a partner I fill my free time with sports,
sometimes involving a bicycle, running shorts, a frisbee, swim
goggles and a yodeling elephant. I have also recently been
converted to rock climbing.... the East Bay religion... although
this is something I'm still not that good at. and of course film,
music, literature and food and all the ramifications of living in
But I would like to improve with age, and try to be more mindful
and think of the bottom half first, who slip away in the
enjoy-yourself-to-the-max-attitude. I would like to want more than
just wineries, Tahoe, surfing and constant traveling etc... and it
is something I'm working on again..
I am idealistically drawn to the radical fringe. I do NOT want to
be part of any 'bewildered herd' (Walter Lippman, may he rot, sorry
Buddha)... even though you couldn't guess it: no tats, bike with
carrier or recent dumpster diving. I think I can sense a Heritage
of Social Struggle in me, but I over-romanticize that a bit. When I
do hear about people sacrificing selflessly for others I get a
baseball sized lump of emotion in my gullet though.
I have a strange fascination for the Spanish Civil War and the
Brigadas Internacionales. Otherwise... I am olive, sea, and coffee
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My career is in research science, doing some very nitpicky and
focused tinkering. I'm still trying to make it work for me. But I
would like to be able to come out and think bigger too.
Trying to stay fit, go outside and camp in the forest, climb or
cycle or run or swim and stay involved in all this wonderful social
justice work in the Bay area.
I can also be a single-speed-cycling thrift-store-trashing hipster
and/or movie snob.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Breakfast. Fixing things, extravaGANDAsizing projects. Putting
blinders on to avoid sleep and food. I'm also good at being a lazy
turd and rolling out of bed at one. Funny that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am *polite* and *quiet*. No one would ever know I grew up yelling
my head off! Mitera, SKASMOS! the second thing would be that I can
be a little judgemental, which is why I am trying to learn about
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
1. BOOK: well... "The Great War for Civilization" by Robert Fisk.
It's heavy, you can defend yourself with it. FEEL the force of
2. MOVIE: "The Third Man". Why? well.. for things like Vienna,
Double 'X' R-au-nch and CU-ckoo clocks
3. MUSIC: Music is for heathens. I listen to it all and
4. Animals rock! but not as FOOD.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stop! Buddhists also find a ridiculous amount of things to number.
It's getting intolerable!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what was I here for, what did I want?
(yes yes a red-hot soulmate)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
if luck is with me? packing all my camping gear.
if not... still at work.. then going home to clean up cat-ate-grass
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that is a bit of an oxymoron.

Who I'm looking for????
Other than Compassion there aren't many things I need in you.
Thinking about someone to be with, hmmm, someone that...
- doesn't mind being athletic
- is childishly curious (we have a lot of playtime ahead of
- she doesn't think she's already gotten 'somewhere' and knows
enough ('En ida oti ouden ida' or I can see that I've seen nothing,
said by some ol Mediterranean so and so).
- is antsy. Jah, some choatic energy now and then!
- ...but outwardly people would still always think that she is:
- is thinking about starting a family (a likeminded childish
(maybe she describes herself as a renaissance woman? a fit mind in
a fit body?)
