My self-summary
I'm self-reflective, thoughtful, realistic, humorous (tending toward the self-deprecating kind), empathetic, forgiving, and laid-back.

I L-O-V-E food/wine. In fact, i may love it more than the average bear. I'll try any type of food once and will discuss the merits of the meal long after the experience until asked to stop (it's been known to happen).

I am a big traveler finding it increasingly rewarding as I get older. I love to experience other cultures which often helps to put life in perspective for me when I return home. Beyond a few traveling quirks, such as placing my shoes in plastic bags (just think about what the bottom of your shoes have seen) and repacking my bag several times during the trip (in the vain hope of making my bag smaller) I am an excellent travel companion with a "go with the flow" mentality. I've been blessed to not only visit many countries w/ family, friends and solo but also live abroad to work and study for an extended period of time. Current bucket list still includes: South America, Italy, Greece and Thailand.
I’m really good at
Listening, finding humor in all situations, cooking, remembering faces, names and birthdays of others, skiing and naming Jelly Belly flavors by sight.
The first things people usually notice about me
Best guess would be my humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books always include cookbooks/food magazines (of any kind) for some easy reading. As for books just read "Women Up!" for some good tips for ladies in biz.

Favorite TV shows - 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, Community, Strangers with Candy (oldie but goodie).
Favorite Movies - All over the place... There Will Be Blood, Goonies, Pretty in Pink, The Departed...there are too many.

Love all types of music (i.e., I am not a music snob). I have been listeing to Broken Bells on repeat as of late...

There is pretty much not a food I will not try. Good food/wine and cooking are a huge part of my life.
The six things I could never do without

Real friendship
Humor
Podcasts
Time alone
Great food & wine
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let's make that most private things (happen to feel like an open book today). Here we go...

Though the rest of the world seems to take offense when I admit this, I do NOT like watermelon, salmon, or chocolate milk (also in this milk category is the muddy sludge remaining at the bottom of a finished cereal bowl).

Non food-related, I cannot roll my "R's" making me hopeless at replicating accents, love re-runs of Three's Company and Bosom Buddies, and lastly, I'm hot for Dave Attell and Jeff Goldblum.

Ah, feels so good to get that all off my chest!

I excel at assigning nicknames to friends and remembering birthdays.
You should message me if
...you have a wicked sense of humor, empathy towards others and a generally positive attitude.
