according to my friends, i have a Rare Aura of Weirdness. i'm not sure if that is true- i'm waiting for someone with a more objective viewpoint to come along and tell me. i am also interested in making new friends who will cocoon me in more sweet, sweet lies. i'm not a morning person or a night person- i'm a middle-of-the-day type. i enjoy museums, aquariums, libraries, zoos, and other places that are filled with animals and/or information. i also enjoy the GREAT outdoors. i grew up in the country (complete with chickens and goats) and i miss the sky terribly. in general, i would rather get together with friends to Do Something than to Sit Around, although i do enjoy the theater (live or movie) every once in awhile.
it says so several times on here, but i think it bears repeating: i'm here for friends. i don't really understand the concept of dating. is that like a job interview for marriage? a better way for people to get to know each other is to become friends without expectations or ulterior motives. friendships of all varieties are awesome and i'd rather have a whole bunch of special people than just one really special person. like kurt vonnegut said "When a couple has an argument nowadays they may think it is about money or power or sex or how to raise the kids or whatever. What they're really saying to each other, though without realizing it, is this: "You are not enough people!""
i'm a nomad, so i am ALWAYS new to the area even if i have been here before. i'm constantly trying to meet people who know where the best hiking trails are or can show me a good vegan restaurant that actually serves veggies (not soy) or who want to practice some yoga or meditation or finger paint or feed stale bread to ducks or do laundry-maths or go to IKEA (it's only fun going to IKEA with people who are really excited about IKEA) or show me where to volunteer with animals or hook me up with a quilting bee or help with kitchen experiments or discuss russian literature.... pretty much anything but drinking and dancing.
