My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I find self-summaries difficult to compose. Nonetheless, here are some traits I believe (hopefully) I possess:
Easy-going, intelligent, active, positive, fun, sensible yet daring, conscientious, concerned about the environment, reasonably attractive and physically fit.
I am a city person, but I love the outdoors, I'm politically liberal, and not religious.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I am between careers, having retired from 26 years of working for state gov't. I love to travel and in 2011 spent 3 weeks in South America where I helped rescue endangered sea turtles in Uruguay. That was quite an experience, the sort of which I plan to seek out more of in the future. [update] In fact, I went to Thailand in 2013 and volunteered on a project that helps captive elephants. I've traveled quite a bit as a tourist, to Europe, South America and the U.S. and I love exploring big cities and cultural sites. I could spend all day roaming in art museums.
I've recently taken up vegetable gardening and have been finding out how much hard work is involved! I do some volunteer work, but need to find something fulfilling to spend my time on. I work out regularly at the Y and value being fit and active.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Parallel parking
Getting dressed and ready in a hurry
Screaming out the answers on Jeopardy
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea. I've been told I am fidgety. I have trouble sitting still for long periods. And I walk fast.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Woody Allen movies, some foreign films, independent films, but I hate gore, horror and vampires.[Top Five Favorite Films: Annie Hall; The Apartment; Au Revoir Les Enfants; Nashville; Groundhog Day---don't laugh, it's very deep.] I just saw "The Last Mountain" and was appalled at what is going on in Appalachia. I went to the "I Love Mountains" Day last year and had the best time protesting.
I read a lot, usually modern fiction, memoirs, and some non-fiction, like "The Lost City of Z" which I recently finished and books by Erik Larson and Nathaniel Philbrick. I recently read "State of Wonder" by Ann Patchett, and loved it. Just finished "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt and it's one of the best novels I've ever read. I love books.
I also love Van Morrison and jazz, but I enjoy new music too, even Maroon 5 and Train that they are always playing on the radio. I was more into music when I was younger---I loved punk and New Wave in the 70's and 80's. I can't get used to the idea of I-pods and downloading music; I hate listening through headphones or earplugs for some reason. I enjoy going to the opera and the orchestra---I like live music of nearly all types.
I like to try new restaurants, preferably locally run joints like El Mundo or Thai Taste, although I love to visit Jack Fry's and Lilly's when I can afford it. I am a fairly good cook, although with a limited repertoire; I always thought I would like to cook for a large family, but that never happened.
I admit I watch too much tv, such as the Daily Show (I went to a taping recently when I was in NY---really fun), and Mad Men and Downton Abbey. Stephen Colbert makes me laugh every night. For some reason, Suze Orman's show fascinates me and I often wind up watching it on Saturday nights if I'm not out painting the town.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The New York Times
Having a cat around
My morning orange juice
Books, real books, not e-books
A porch swing in summer
Live jazz and a glass of wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Peak oil---what if it's real? Read J.H. Kunstler's "The Long Emergency" and his blog; very anxiety-producing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably out with friends for drinks and dinner, maybe a show at Actor's Theatre, or maybe the trolley hop; might be at home alone watching The McLaughlin Group.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I watch "Jersey Shore" and have no idea why I find it interesting.
I think karaoke is one of the most horrible things ever invented.

I've been on this site for a while with no photo and decided to post one even though I really don't like the idea of on-line dating!
