I am equally at ease screaming on a roller coaster (preferably wooden) or cuddling and quitely watching a sunset.
I'm also terminally curious and unceasingly optimistic. Weekend spontaneity is also a hallmark of my existence. It's extremely enjoyable to hop in a car for the day (or entire weekend) with no plan in mind other than a likely destination.
I laugh easily and frequently and my good mood is usually contagious. I skip daily just because. One of my favorite quotes is from Oscar Wilde "Life is too important to be taken seriously".
That said, I love my job and believe that our work (and more importantly our attitude towards our work) is crucial to a healthy outlook on life.
I enjoy festivals and events. I get to the Renaissance Festival every year (no I don't have period clothes), Arts Festivals, leaf-peeping, and many other activities.
My only true addiction is films. My favorite of all time is "Mary Poppins". Kind of like revisiting childhood.
I travel when I can and the photo is from Alaska in September, 2008. Yes, the photo is a bit dated, but I still look pretty much the same. A little more gray (still the same amount of hair) and a few more pounds.
I neither hunt nor fish, although I have been known to shoot things with a camera. Walking in the woods is rejuvinating and I have been swimming in all five Great Lakes.
Mostly I eat healthy (primarily vegetarian) and am a competent cook with most things, and excellent with a few. There is always pizza when results are inedible. Kitchen chores are a wonderful shared activity.
I firmly believe that attraction lies between the ears and everything else is frosting.
I value differences, and have taken to heart the quote, "If two people agree on everything, one of them isn't necessary".
I am honest, courteous, and intelligent
