Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Overall, I greatly prefer life in overalls.
(though I do love--and look good in--a shirtwaist dress!)
I love capers...
...the pickled kind AND the adventure kind.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Book slinger, history uncover-er, teacher of simple stop
Also: Carrying rocks in my pockets. Pouring wine. Attempting cross
word puzzles. Re-reading books I read when I was 10. Studying
sashiko designs. Knitting on very small needles.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Knitting socks, quilting, writing zines, paper correspondence (real
letters!!!!), canning food, making pies, conversation... I'm a
pretty old fashioned lady in a lot of ways. Not so old fashioned in
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically? My long legs, big hair, and other top heavy
Other than that, people probably notice that I'm not very shy and
that I talk a lot.
I'm almost always really colorful. Like, REALLY colorful. I usually
have on about 14 colors at once. Some have described me as a
tropical bird. I was born this way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I mostly read nonfiction, but I love a lot of kinds other books,
too (cook books, trashy Amish romance, French comics). I have spent
most of my professional career working in libraries so I have been
bombarded by lots of great reading material.
Food? Oh, I like food. I have been a quasi-vegetarian
(pescatarian/fishitarian) for about 15 years. I eat pretty much
anything else. I love sweet and salty snacks, green vegetables,
pickled things, fruit pies, cheeses, and unusual carbonated soft
drinks. And booze and coffee. I like those a lot. ALSO BOILED
PEANUTS. I am somewhat of a connoisseur of them.
I could rattle off bands that would impress you if you are
impressed by such things. Let me know if i should do that.
Typically I like music that is older than me. If I am a snob about
any genre it's bluegrass. Lately I have been really in to Motown.
Makes me feel good all over.
George Harrison is my favorite Beatle. So much so that sometimes I
forget he was a Beatle.
My top 5 favorite movies are:
Smokey and the Bandit
All the Real Girls
I also reeeeally love spaghetti westerns and have a pretty good
collection of them.
Oh. And The Walton's. Uh-may-ziiiiing. Like, my most fav.
WALKING DEAD! Are you my Daryl?!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides family and friends and food and water and shelter and stuff
Office supplies, knitting needles, my worn out overalls, new books,
a record player/records, and postage stamps.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Growing plants, thunderstorms, travel, new crushes, gas prices,
typewritter ribbons, sparkly stuff, running, Twang in light piss
beer, properly worn in quilts, carbonated water, Peychaud bitters,
making out, and fast cars going in circles on a dirt track.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Some combination of the following:
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have really sharp teeth and I'm not afraid to use them.
I have a friend on OKC who said I pop up on lists as being "more
messy" and "less interested in sex" than women my age. WTF? Those
are both patently untrue. I assure you, I am a tidy, if raging sex
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have kids and/or want to have kids. I don't have baby fever but
I know what I want for my eventual future and kids have a place
there. That said, maybe we should make out to see if we should
progress to reproduction.
You are not intimidated by a tall girl with sass.
If big scars don't scare you. (Not emotional scars but literal
ones. This lady has some seams.)
If I have messaged you first, you should totally message me back.
It means I think you sound cute, endearing, fun, and worth my time.
At least "on paper." So do it already!
