I read. All the time. I enjoy well-reasoned works on political and social issues, as well as quite a bit of sci-fi/fantasy genre fiction. I have excellent taste in music and tend to catch bands when they are still in their $10, playing in small clubs phase. I also know and enjoy classical music and art, so I'm not a complete philistine. I equally enjoy camping and fishing and drinking beer over the meal that was just cooked over a fire.
I'm a dog person. Fully and completely. I currently have a rescued Smooth Collie who is my lee in life. We're working on training for several performance events, including herding and agility.
I'm not squeamish or silly in the least (except when it comes to Palmetto bugs, which are giant, aggressive, flying cockroaches that live in the South, from whence I hail).
I have a master's degree in English, work in the non-profit field, am very progressive politically and am a feminist. Yes. A feminist. And fat. No, I am not afraid to declare myself as such.
I'm an odd combination of the sensual and the practical. I love touch and sex and physical sensation, but I don't harbor illusions of knights on horses come to make me a princess. I'd make a horrible princess. I don't believe in traditional romance or traditional relationships. In fact, tradition always gets my suspicious side going a bit.
However, if you do have a horse, I might consider riding him to rescue you and make you my princess. Complete with the frothy dress and silly shoes....
I am Introspective, Intense, and Internal
