My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just launched my own (very) small wine education company. I'm a sommelier. I'm generally attracted to all things unconventional. Relationships that draw peace and happiness through constant and exhaustive attempts to maximize utility hold absolutely no appeal.

"I trust you will forgive my friend. The wines were to various. It was neither the quality nor the quantity that was at fault - it was the mixture. Grasp that and you have the very root of the matter. To understand all is to forgive all."

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Again, I know that I've completed this not according to directions. I'm really good at that!! And writing. The J stroke!! Teaching people just like you (yes YOU!!) some neat things about wine that might just make you hard; even a little. This I guarantee! I'm good at tacking, not meeting deadlines, procrastinating, being in a moment and not looking for distractions. I'm also very good at gaining weight as well as losing weight, though never at the same time.

Show me Show me
How you do that trick,
The one that makes me scream she said,
The one that makes me laugh she said
And threw her arms around my neck

Show me how you do it, and I promise you, I promise that I'll run away with you, I'll run away with you.

Yeah, that's not an answer but the first thing that popped into my head. I'll revisit soon.

I have no idea where to begin.the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, Goodnight Moon.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) the knowledge that I have another adventure on the horizon.
2) Incandescent light bulbs
3) The ability to read, and read voraciously
4) the proximity to surround myself by those that know and love me most. Continuity really matters.
5) The sure knowledge that growth is happening - just don't peek to often. You are becoming more beautiful and wise and more impatient at the status quo then ever. And I gotta say, it looks pretty hot on you.
6) this is the "wheels fall off the cart moment;" but this is me - honest and unedited.
Number six is um...a/c. But only in the city!!!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You read something that made you smile and think "hey! Me too," or you read something that you really disagree with. Lets talk about it! Or perhaps you think I look like a very interesting young man, but that I was obviously in need of a poke. Do get back to me then, too!
