Creative, smart and funny but I can also be serious. I enjoy witty
banter, silliness and serious conversation. Wow. It's much easier
writing a summary on a resume than on here.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm enjoying my life, reading, dancing, cooking, going to museums, spending time with family and friends, taking pictures to remind myself how beautiful San Francisco is, pretending I make jewelry, thinking about drawing and painting, recording, and not getting enough sleep. I am so interested at night I just don't want to go to sleep. I've been like this since I was five years old. You'd think I'd get over it by now.
I’m really good at
Writing, though not always good at staying on point; my job;
cooking; baking; being positive; seeing both sides of an issue or
situation; staying up late; logic; calming people down,
conversation and being funny.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm in a book club so I read a wide variety of material that I wouldn't necessarily pick up on my own. My favorite political book was Under the Banner of Heaven, a gripping tale of the history of Mormonism, which made me realize everything in the Mormon episode of South Park (and apparently The Book of Mormon) was true!
I love movies and my taste ranges more towards the critics than the people. Though I do enjoy some shoot-em-up movies, I prefer character-driven wordy films. I'm a big disliker of musicals, except West Side Story and The Producers. The most painful moments of my life were seeing Mama Mia with a group of friends who all loved it, and Camelot starring Richard Harris prancing around in tights in his 60s. Puhleaze. Okay, I have had more painful moments but they just aren't amusing.
I love all types of music. I used to say except rap and country but I do like some of each now. Wow. I know that's rare for someone my age.
I love food, particular spicy Asian food, but I detest guts. Yuck.
I like watching TV shows through Netflix. Right now I'm watching House of Cards, How to Get Away with Murder and Girls. I'm a big fan of Downton Abbey and recently finished watching Louis, Maron and Mad Men.
I also enjoy radio and podcasts including Serial and Undisclosed. I love This American Life, Snap Judgment, and The Moth Radio Hour. I'm a big fan of NPR.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, reading, chocolate, computers, fresh air and garlic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My son graduating from high school, going to college and my new life without a live-in teen!
On a typical Friday night I am
happy that it's Friday and enjoying the space and time in front of
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I probably would not reveal on a web site. Sheesh
You should message me if
You live in the Bay Area, our friendship numbers are high and
Christianity and right wing politics are NOT the most important
things to you.
