Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Busy professional with a goofy sense of humor and even goofier
family hoping to find someone to share it all with.
With my last little birdie graduating and leaving the nest in June,
I am exploring several options to relocate south in the coming
months, so don't let my current location be a concern. And in the
meantime, no, you don't need a passport to get here.
I try to do all of the good Boy Scout character traits. I have kind
and loyal down pretty well, but I have no idea why thrifty and
reverent are even on the list. And why funny and goofy aren't.
Maybe that's why I never earned very many merit badges.
For some reason this "personality" section says I'm "more
aggressive." Don't know where they got that: I certainly don't see
myself that way. I'm an INFP without much doubt!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Raising kids (half time) ... one out of college and on his own, one
in college and a third not far behind. The nest is emptying out.
Time to think more about myself again!
I refuse to call it a mid-life crisis, and I am enjoying thinking
about what comes next. Maybe it's to continue what I'm doing now,
maybe it isn't. Maybe it's where I live now, maybe it's elsewhere.
There are infinite possibilities!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
my work. parenting. reading, writing and arithmetic. and crossword
puzzles. My pie crust needs improvement, but otherwise I'm very
handy in the kitchen. I like to do the entire Thanksgiving dinner
for my extended family, fills me of memories of Thanksgiving as a
kid. My peanut sauce rocks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm clueless. I have no idea. People tell me I've been shrinking,
which is true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Adventurous about food; willing to try about anything except organ
meats. Ick. Steamers and mussels out on a deck with beer and good
bread makes for a terrific summer afternoon. I prefer red wine to
white, and dark beers. I love rustic breads, I only wish I could
make them well. I love pig.
Books: Chabon, Bourdain, King, Franzen, something with a good
story. My work has enough drama, so I prefer to read to be
entertained, not educated.
Movies: I admit, I cannot be a cinema snob. I didn't understand
what all the excitement was about Grand Budapest Hotel. Best films
I've seen lately are Pride and Birdman. I usually prefer comedies
to dramas. I think sometimes Adam Sandler and Will Farrell need to
be reminded that not every idea they have is actually funny, but
sometimes they get it right. I usually like Aaron Sorkin scripts
and Judd Apatow movies. Alexander Payne is a genius. And every once
in a while I have to watch My Favorite Year.
Music: must have a beat. No rap, twangy country or trilly opera. I
haven't found a radio station that matches me completely, so I'm
usually bouncing around the dial, or playing music from my phone.
Tho I am an old soul, I like Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Cake, Green
Day, Mumford and Sons and some other stuff my kids listen to. The
hip hop blended with 80's music? Not so much.
TV: I am totally bummed Friday Night Lights and No Reservations
have ended. I like Modern Family, but it's starting to get stale.
House of Cards is good. I try not to miss Big Bang Theory: I
identify with Raj's struggles.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. pics and momentos
4. my kids' laughter
5. a gentle touch
6. used to be diet pepsi, but I'm off it. lost weight, too. A lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future: mine, my kids' and the world's generally.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Until now, I have been in a stadium or gym somewhere watchin' the
kiddos. That's ending with this spring's softball season, so I've
been exploring new things. I love our local improv club or hitting
some live local music. If I'm feeling particularly adventurous I'm
in Seattle or Vancouver exploring the night life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have my share of funny stories. Later.
