I'm thoughtful, considerate, honest and playful, always engaging people with humor hoping to create a joyful interaction. This doesn't mean I can't be serious because I can and very often am. I can be playfully mischievous. If you're interested in an example you can see my KQED story at the end of my profile. I've been accused more than once of being very romantic. I have a black belt in snuggling and I've won two international kissing contests. OK, I'm kidding again, but it could happen!
"Balance" is probably my favorite word. I love animals: my first job was in a pet shop and I spent 5 summers on a ranch camp riding horses. I love the high Sierra back country. I am blown away by nature! Little kids make me smile and laugh. I make occasional donations to organizations such as the S.P.C.A, The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, Save the Children, Greenpeace and others.
I listen to a variety of music--jazz, classical, rock--but I'm not big on opera or rap. Likewise I enjoy a diverse selection of movies from the mindless action flick to documentaries and foreign films.
My four modes of transportation include my car, bicycle, motorcycle and feet. I'm thinking about getting a RV.
I think we should probably live within a 30 minute commute of each other. Seeing each other several times a week might quickly become tiresome if it meant spending endless hours commuting.
Oh, and one more thing: CHOCOLATE RULES!
I really hope to find a fun-loving, playful, serious partner with good communication skills, a woman who understands that it's by revealing oneself that connection is formed. Small talk is OK, but I'm more interested in big talk.
FYI: I love animals but I can be allergic to cats. Also, if your age as stated in your profile isn't true, or your photo makes you look 20 years younger or 20 lbs. thinner please let me know now.
I was volunteering at KQED--the local PBS TV station--during a pledge drive. They gave all the volunteers who were taking phone calls a little card on a stick, a placard I guess they call it. One one side was written "Call Me" and the other side was blank. They provided a marker so the volunteers could write their own message on the cards. The idea was to hold these up and wave them around when the TV camera panned around to the volunteers.
So, Mr. Smartypants here takes the marker and crosses out the word "Call" and writes in "Do", so now the placard says "Do Me" which had quite obviously been edited from Call Me. Of course--you know it just had to happen--just as I'm waving my placard around the camera pans onto me and a woman calling in to pledge gets connected to my extension. It was a slow day and only a few of us were on the phone. The rest of the volunteers were watching the monitors and they all saw my Do Me card and started laughing hysterically. The woman whose pledge I'm taking sees it too on TV and asks me playfully "is that included?", and now I'm stammering and turning a rather crimson shade, just a wee bit embarrassed as a result of my own mischievousness.
