My mom used to tell me, "You'll find the perfect woman." When I
turned 40 and she switched to "As long as you're happy" it freaked
me out. So I'm putting a little more effort into finding a woman to
spend the rest of my life with.
I'm a copy editor. I don't get to go crabbing enough. I would love
to take a cooking class to improve my uber-tasty
seafood/asparagus/mushroom risotto. And I love my nieces.
And my new favorite quote is, "I'm outdoorsy in that I like to
drink on patios."
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to the Northwest a few years ago. I'm still trying to catch
that first keeper salmon. It's out there somewhere, I just have to
keep looking for it.
Living in Olympia and working in Tacoma is not much fun, but I'm
starting to get used to it. I hope I won't have to do it forever.
I’m really good at
Scrabble and one-liners. And I'm a good cook. And I should add
something like I give good back rubs and e-mails. Also, I tend to
pick good gifts for family, but they're often ones I can't afford.
Guess I'd better work harder.
And my dental hygienist says I'm good at flossing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I both laugh and sneeze loud.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Christopher Moore, Tolkien, Bruce Feiler , Thich Nhat Hanh,
Peter Hessler, Frank Baldwin, Dean Koontz and whatever my family
Movies: Genres come and go. But I'm a big geek.
Music: Coletrane, Daddy Marsalis, Cure, Social Distortion,
Food: Whatever I can cook. And anything Asian. Or Mediterranean.
And it'd better come with a good glass of wine and decent
The six things I could never do without
Family, food, fresh air, music, something to do and someone to
share it with. (But in a manly, non-sappy way. 8^) )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe and everything. The brain never stops. Turning
things over in the middle of the night.
I'm sure there's some kind of psychological diagnosis I'm missing
here, but most of the time, I think I'm pretty sane.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late. And waiting patiently for my weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
No man or woman (if that's what they choose) will ever be good
enough for my nieces!
You should message me if
I'm good at useless trivia if you need something answered.
