Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Of my top five favorite words, you'd find that meaning and sound
appeal to me equally. The one that tops my list is "eclectic." I
like what it means. I like the way it kind of dances on the tongue.
My favorite classroom game as a kid was "Fruit Basket Upset." I
like a variety of stuff, quirky stuff, but mostly stuff takes on a
very special meaning if it has a story attached, for that's what I
truly like best, a good story..... it's what history, community,
family and culture is all about.
Another one is "Epiphany." I like its meaning and the "fffff"
sound, because it sounds like and feels like the wind. It puts me
in mind of the Chapter of Acts' Upper Room, where the Spirit comes
in like a Mighty Rushing Wind. Whether one calls it epiphany or
inspiration, it is the breath of life.... it invigorates my
soul..... Though I may not be of a religious bent, I do recognize
that humans are as much spiritual beings as they are physical,
mental and emotional.
In our American culture, we often identify ourselves to others by
what we "do." I am right-brain dominate, so the "creative" dictates
how I spend the majority of my time.
Yet, most of us ignore, don't even explore who we are.... from
inside. You know, our value system, our history, our relationships
and all the other things that are abstract. We identify ourselves
by the tangible. For me, the Glass is NEITHER Half Full or Half
Empty. It is ALL THE WAY FULL..... It is half full of the tangible
(Liquid) and half full of the intangible (Air). Just as Life.
Culture, Relationships, and Emotions are intangible, they're what
define us as individuals and as a culture. And they are the first
things that we refuse to acknowledge, that we deny are real.....
yet they are HALF THE GLASS.
Humans just make no sense.
How's your glass? Do you keep it in the fridge or prefer it at room
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What am I doing with my life? My dad asks me this all the time. I
suppose many parents measure their children's success and their own
success (in child-rearing) based on accomplishment and
acquisitions. I'm quite happy, most of the time. I think that is
the true mark of success. I have all the STUFF that I think I need.
I never have enough friends... that is a very good feeling, not a
frustration. What I do contributes to my happiness and personal
satisfaction. I know it is the American Way to strive for some
measure of success.... I think, I'm okay with all the "trappings"
of success (debt is one). There has to be a very significant reason
that they call it that, ya think?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, and arguing. I like to argue with someone (playing the
"Devils Advocate," as it were), just to find out how convinced they
are of their own argument, their own opinion.
I'm also good at hugging... none of those "little old lady" hugs
with the little baby pats on the back. Uh-uh, no sirree-bob, I say,
"Put a little muscle in it."
I've been told that I am a good kisser, too. All I know is that I
enjoy doing it. It's very hard to practice alone, and not nearly as
I'm a good cook. I don't use recipes. I kind of "play by ear." I
guess you would say that I am kind of a jazzy, bluesy,
I'm a good storyteller, as well. I was born to it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My long hair and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Harold and Maude, Adam's Rib, Mars Attacks, Anything Roger
Corman, Movies where things blow up, but not necessarily
decapitated heads fly through the air. Not inappropriate blood and
gore. It should ad to the story... further the story or plot.
I find that musicals are generally lacking of any credibility. But
I have to say that I really enjoyed Sarafina, The Jersey Boys and
Little Shop of Horrors.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There aren't any. I adapt. There are plenty of things that any
given time in my life, I would rather not forgo, but I can't say
that I would give my life up for anyone "thing." Sorry to blow your
hard- thought question, okcupid.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
problem solving..... giving gifts, creating stuff, writing and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am kicked back, reading or vegging-out on a movie where things
are blowing up... preferably.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I go commando from time to time.
