Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's interesting casting one's net out into the cloud isn't it? Met
some very cool people on this site so far and the ones that weren't
so great, well, they'll all be good stories one day eh?
ps I've been told that I appear to be online on this site a lot but
I'm actually only on here maybe once a week. So please disregard
whatever it says about when I've been on here last.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Professionally I help tune people's minds and pianos (I've two
separate careers/businesses), but I also occasionally get paid to
belly dance and play music (lead guitar, a little piano and
clarinet) which I guess means that someone somewhere thinks I'm
good at these things. I am also an avid open water swimmer here in
the bay and although there's no chance of getting paid for that, it
does suggest that I'm good at not heeding my natural instincts and
good judgement about cold water, chop, boats and marine creatures.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People usually say that they notice my smile, my eyes or my
dimples. Of course, if they get to know me better they end up
admitting to have actually been focused on parts farther south.
Guess we should all stop pretending that humans aren't actually
animals like all other creatures eh? But please, tell me it's my
face and not some other physical aspect and I'll give you more
points for that! ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

There isn't enough room! I'm very passionate about all these
things. I'd be a much richer woman if it weren't for my love of
eating out! I'm a typical San Franciscan in my foodie-ness, but I
like to think I keep the pretentiousness that can accompany it to a
minimum. Books: Always working on one, it's how I unwind before
going to sleep (now that I'm single anyway!). Currently halfway
through Infinite Jest. David Foster Wallace is a genius. Was a
genius. So sad he is gone. I will be working on this one for a
while given that it's 1000 pages, involves multiple story lines and
characters and requires looking up a word every third page or so
despite my feeling that I've got a fairly good vocabulary, he's
introduced me to a whole lot of new words! Music, ah music. My iPod
playlist, before it sadly got lost, had a lot of middle eastern
music, Arcade Fire, Radiohead, Leonard Cohen and Beats Antique. I
was, sadly, getting sick of all of it simply from overplay so we'll
see what ends up on my next iPod.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In a relationship:
someone who's genuinely interested in hearing about my day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I am to be honest, the pie chart would go something like this:
food 10%, swimming 10%, bills and other minutia 10%, what
appointments I have when 10%, my clients 10%, sex and relationships
25%, friends 15%, politics and social/environmental issues 5%,
where I left my keys/glasses/favorite top/marbles 5%. I'll do a
full power point for you with better graphics when I meet you. ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'd love to paint myself as the kind of gal that takes full
advantage of all the amazing live music, art, theatre, restaurants
etc. that this town has to offer, but the reality is I often get up
at 5 or 6 am Saturday morning for a club swim so Friday night often
finds me curled up in bed with a good book. Saturday night, ok,
take me out on the town!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I only got in trouble once in all my years of elementary school. It
was for chasing then pinning down a boy that my best friend had a
crush on so that she could kiss him. I thought I was being a good
friend! Good thing this didn't happen in the 'aughts as I probably
would have been suspended for sexual harassment!
