it takes me a little time to warm up to folks usually. i am outgoing, dependable, loyal, happy, energetic, communicative, utilitarian, sassy. after many years and many interactions, i have come to the conclusion that my perception of the world around me is more comprehensive/holistic than most.
i've grown quite fond of riding my bicycle in the last many years. i like to wear outrageous/garish/cute knee-high socks when i cycle; i have lost count of how many people laugh/smile at me when i go by. :D i have completed the STP 3 times. Bikram yoga is a must for me, and makes me feel great! it is very important to me that my partner have a compatible lifestyle. you know what they say: "the couple that plays together, stays together". if you don't want to go cycling or backpacking, you will be lonely in the summer; if you don't want to ski or snowboard, you will be lonely in the winter. i want a playmate who can keep up and even challenge me. ;)
i cook. i recycle. love being with the bugs/dirt/plants in my garden and in the woods. i am passionate about Mother Nature; i love what i cannot control. DIY, sewing, snowboarding, hiking, backpacking to a nice spot with nobody for miles, camping, rock climbing (beginner, have shoes/harness), kayaking, rollerblading... i am not one of those folks that just says they like these things; i actually get up and get on out and do them. the second bedroom in my house has become a damn gear closet fer chrissakes... :P
i have no TV. occasionally i watch Netflix on my laptop. i have a big sweet kitty who has been with me for about 17 years, but he's still spry! i hope you're not allergic...
