As for me, I'm Funny, fun, warm, outgoing, and ultra-friendly - really. Don't doubt it for a moment. If I watch it's usually a documentary and if i read it's probably non-fiction. I have passions. Cycling, gardening/permaculture, photography, hiking, camping, and live music. With a new puppy I'm devoting more time to running. I just can't help but love the Bern. I'm by nature extremely social and while I'm always happy to be a part of a larger group, I'm better at the small and intimate.
Some interesting things to know:
I spent my school years in western and northern new england
I spent my professional years in NYC and brought my job with me to AVL - i work from home
I moved here on August, 1st 2014 and just bought my first house in May. I'm here for good and I can't imagine ever leaving
I adopted a rescue puppy and I adore her more than just about anything ever anywhere anytime
My passport has lots of stamps. I've been to Machu Picchu 4 times and I may go back on an actual expedition to discover unknown (til now) ruins in April or May. Always a dream of mine and it may come true
I cycle and work out and this spring I buy my first kayak... maybe even get me a mountain bike so I can tire out my dog instead of the other way around. And, I have a set of passed-down golf clubs. They may be the casualty of not enough time. Never could get the damn ball in the clown's mouth
I love living outside of my comfort zone -- explore new territory I will always
I've entered the Amazon through five different countries and hate it
I am a huge fan of Richard Dawkins, Lawrence Krauss, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Bill Maher. This could be extremely important to anyone who appreciates organized religion
I drive an electric car
I kick butt in scrabble. Challenge me to a game!
Music -- Jamband and funk. Phish, Dead, Gov't Mule, WSP, Galactic, Soulive, Lettuce, Railroad Earth, Deep Banana Blackout, Turkuaz, Phil, Bob, etc. And jazz. Can never go wrong with Jazz
TV? I don't think talking about this makes anyone happy
