Love to laugh, love to travel, love to hang out with friends and
family...life is way too fun to sit still or settle for less!! I'm
outgoing and energetic, spontaneous and smart. I love an adventure
and often invent them just to have one! I am crazy sarcastic and
dauntingly informed...my kids wear flack jackets at home in order
to survive the wit.
What I’m doing with my life
Thinking about how to make the most out of every day! I get to the
gym, teach singing, enjoy cooking, watch British detective shows
and try to find a good wine. Time with family and friends is
precious to me, and I make sure to find it. At mid-life, it's time
to put quality first in all things.
I’m really good at
Making any situation fun... really, ANY situation. Any topic is
interesting to me (except gun control -- just kidding, yes it is).
Challenge me to find a good restaurant or the best recipe for
ginger snaps -- I'm all over it. While it's hard for me to watch
action movies (i'll do it for a reward...), I love the sappy
British movies where the guys wear puffy shirts. Give me a good
Scrabble game any evening, as long as there is plenty of Cabernet
Sauvignon on hand.
The first things people usually notice about me
I hate camping. Yes, it's true, that always comes up first. And I
have a smile on my face all day every day -- it's hard to find me
down and out. No one is a stranger, because I can make small talk
with a lamp post -- got that from my dad. And I could sell freezers
to the Aleuts (Eskimo is not a PC term anymore, right?).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm crazy for British drama TV and period movies. Current faves are
Downton Abbey, Sherlock Holmes, Island at War, and Doc Martin.
Books -- who has time anymore? I used to love to read historical
fiction... now I am one.
The six things I could never do without
The Telephone in any form
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I wonder if I am making the most of my life... there are so many
great things to enjoy -- am I missing anything?
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to figure out better answers to these questions....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmmmmmmm.... that's a tough one. Is that private enough?
