I'm also a bit of a bar fly. I'm not really a huge drinker--it's rare that I drink much at home--but I love going to a neighborhood dive to play a game of pool or pinball or meet/talk to an eclectic group of people, maybe even some wii bowling (watch out, I'm pretty good). I'm a recovering bartender, so I guess bars are a place that I'm accustomed to. I don't drink beer, but I love hard cider, Jameson...sometimes Captain Morgan if the mood strikes. Not a huge fan of trendy bars or clubs, but give me a neighborhood bar with my preferred whiskey, a pool table and a challenging opponent, and I'll be a happy camper.
I'm a big animal person. Its been a rough past couple of years, and I am finally getting back on my feet. Unfortunately my faith in humanity is still kinda shot, and with a background in customer service and bartending, well....my options have been kind of limited, seeing as I am trying to restore that faith and neither retail nor bartending are terribly conducive to that. So, I just started working at a doggie daycare. My theory is, since critters have gotten me this far, I may as well run with it and see where I can go with it.
I don't have any pets of my own at present (my ex got my kitty), but I have a god-dog, Cha-Cha, and her daughter Honey (they are my friend's dogs, but I helped raise Honey, and have spent more time with the 2 of them than I have people in the last couple of years). I was living in East Oakland for a while, and ended up fostering numerous pit bull puppies, as well. Besides 5 cats and 3 dogs (plus 2 god-dogs, raising 2 litters of pups, and fostering numerous other puppies), I've also had 13 rats (she was pregnant when I bought her....THAT was a surprise) 3 cockatiels, and numerous fish of various breeds (including one goldfish who enjoyed being held. I know, wtf, but there ya go) and hope someday to be able to get an African Grey parrot and another dog and cat. I would have a menagerie if I had the space and money! I have critter stories for days, so really--be an animal lover who can talk pets ad nauseum and will proudly show off pictures of your critters like they are your children too, otherwise you will likely find me to be utterly exhausting and boring.
Lastly, I'm on here just to get my feet wet. My last relationship really did a number on me, and my libido seems to have gotten lost somewhere in the chaos, but I figure I need to at least go out and meet people and try to be social again. Can't go on living in a tower forever, right? So, please, don't contact me if you are looking to get into a relationship right now, or are hoping to get laid immediately, cuz it ain't gonna happen here. Seriously. No, you can't "fix" my libido, no I won't "just fool around and see if it comes back" (yes, I really have had people say this to me). My trust issues have trust issues which have spawned little trust issues of their own, and the only thing that will fix it is time and patience. If, however, you are interested in some intelligent conversation and perhaps a new friend to be an ass with, play video games with, and share your pet with, well then you know what to do ;)
