Misplaced hobbit loves the outdoors, is fanatical about books and
bookstores, devoted to her dogs and cats, passionate about Notre
Dame football, thinks Led Zeppelin is the greatest rock band that
ever existed, and is often found with fingernails painted five
different colors. Secretly worried that the nails are a sign of
some sort of psychosis, but does it anyway because pretty colors
make her happy...also there's no point in passing 50 if it doesn't
give you the guts to do your own thing.
I like to hear people's stories. I like to play with ideas. I like
to think about things that are bigger than my mind. I like to help
other people discern their best form of spirituality, and to work
on my own faith and philosophy of life. The helping other people
part is assuming the other person wants my help and asks for it, of
course. I'm not here to change you if you've already got it figured
I like anything that happens outside. I like to watch sports, but
not participate. I like to walk my dogs or work in the yard for
exercise. I can ride a bike, but don't currently own one, and I
enjoy being in the water and dog paddling around, but I'm not
actually a swimmer. I suppose I would like long walks on the beach,
but truthfully...I've never actually taken one. I'm in favor of the
idea if the opportunity arises, however. In the winter time,
sledding and learning to cross country ski would be fun activites
for me. And I actually like to shovel, so long as there is enough
time to not have to rush through it.
I lke to take the dogs out under the stars and star watch. Speical
friends are Orion and Cygnus and the Pleiades.
I am a life long learner. I'm curious about practically everything
and will read avidly or attend lectures on any subject that catches
What I’m doing with my life
UGH! 50 is a transitional state. Hoping to get back into some form
of education or social service job soon. Clerical/retail for the
I’m really good at
Teaching, rehabiliting dogs rescued from puppy mills, and
inadvertantly being a dork...
The first things people usually notice about me
I do look exactly like a hobbit. Those who don't know what hobbits
are don't notice this, however.

The six things I could never do without
My dogs and cats.
A house with a yard.
Audio visual entertainment in moderation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
hmm...what the next stage of my life wil look like, whatever I'm
reading, God/spirituality, and I just like playing with ideas in
general. Also, the more I use this site, the more I find myself
wondering, "Exactly How Many Of These Personality Questions Are
There?" One person whose profile I looked at has over 1500. I have
to admit, though, that they do tell me as much or more about the
person as the profile, so overall, I appreciate them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working..I work 2 jobs. Otherwise, movies, reading, hanging out at
bookstores, working in the yard..depends on the season.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nice try, but no way.
You should message me if
you think we could have interesting conversations.
