My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If I were to imagine my perfect match … she is funny, happy, always laughing, and keeps up with my joking and I keep up with hers. She is down to Earth, sincere, and not afraid to take a chance. Someone who is your best pal sharing life’s experiences with a complementary outlook on life and love, interested in the same things but not always. Someone who knows her own mind.

There are so many great things to do in the SF Bay Area and Northern California. I would love to get out and explore – museums, parks, restaurants, theater and music, restaurants, sporting events, did I mention restaurants.

I am quite spontaneous and love to do things at the drop of a hat. Planning is good but spur of the moment is more fun.

So, my skiing story. It was Super Bowl weekend, January 1984. I decided that I wanted to learn how to ski ... now. So my brother and I and a couple of friends went to Killington in Vermont. It's a beautiful place. It was really cold - really, really cold. My brother and one of my friends knew how to ski so they took off. I signed up for lessons with my other friend.

My friend took to it like a duck to water; I did not. They loaded us in the back of an open truck and took us up to the top of the mountain, a bunny slope really. We were wearing our ski boots and carrying the skis and poles. I was the first one out of the truck. Actually I fell out of the truck. Boom. The two ladies in their sixties (I was only 26) right behind me managed just fine. "Be careful Marge. Don't step on him." It was quite humiliating.

So finally I'm out on the slope. I fell more often than anyone else. I spent a good part of the day lying on my back looking up at the sky. You know how they say every cloud looks like something, a chicken, a bear, a man on a bicycle. To me every cloud looked like an orthopedic surgeon.

At one point I was standing there trying not to fall and this kid about five schusses up next to me and then takes off. His father was right behind him. "Is that your kid?" "Yea, no fear. Bye." Nice.

So if you're a skier, I'll wait for you in the lodge :)

I’m more inclined to think with my heart than my head and would like to meet someone with same point of view. And I like to cook.

Here's my cooking story. The first time I cooked a Thanksgiving turkey on my own - about 9 lbs - I put it in the oven at 400 degrees and left it in for 6 hours just to make sure it was done thoroughly. I killed every salmonella bacterium within 50 miles, and in the process discovered accelerated fossilization. I could barely cut it and simply could not chew it. The next year I bought a meat thermometer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently joined a new gym and have been going every other day to get myself back into shape. I am taking swim classes to get back into the pool. I learned to swim when I was about 7 but am essentially starting over. It's really been great fun. I have this wacky idea that I'd like to do a triathlon next spring or summer. Next, let's see if I can run without too much protest from my creaky old knees!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a stupendous and mostly irreverent sense of humor and can laugh about most things. I'm pretty good at making other people laugh and am quite excellent at making someone feel relaxed, calm and the center of the universe when in my presence. You have the whole of my attention.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
At first I appear to be very polite and somewhat quiet. After a relatively short time people realize that I'm not at all quiet. In fact it’s much more like stealth extroversion. I am always polite though. Oh, and they also notice that I don't look at all like George Clooney.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am currently reading Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. It makes me want to be a secret agent. I have recently read The Hunger Games, the story of a totalitarian and dysfunctional society and the triumph of the individual. I was quite surprised at the quality and depth of the story. It reminded me of Brave New World.

Movie favorites include American Graffiti (my all-time favorite movie), Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Shakespeare In Love, Man for all Seasons, Dark Passage (Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall), Breaker Morant.

Food? I'll eat anything but deviled eggs. I make an awesome seafood gumbo even though I'm not from Louisiana. I've even gotten pretty good at cooking turkey.

And I want to go see Les Miserables. I know all the words.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, my bike, SF Giants; winter is long; spring training is good, my job (I've grown accustomed to eating and living inside), my running shoes, all my books (lots and lots of books)!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. I have always been intrigued by possibilities. Always wondering what is the next great experience or adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the gym. Really love that place.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Even though most people find this hard to believe, my basic nature is quiet and somewhat shy. I have worked hard to overcome this so that I now appear to world as an extrovert. Never crude or boorish though.
