My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Midwestern transplant well rooted in New York. I can bait a hook and unhook the fish. I catch and release, so I don't know how to clean one. In the right area I can find porcini mushrooms in the woods and make a risotto with them. In other areas, I can find them in the store. I live in a neighborhood where you can hear the call to prayer and the sirens for Shabbos, as you walk by Haitian Pentecostal store front churches, to drink great cocktails and remind yourself to get Mexican conchas and cuernos tomorrow for breakfast. Who would want to live in any other place?

Warning: I am a sucker for a man wearing a bow tie. Please forgive me if you are not interested in me yet I keep going to your profile to stare at you wearing one.

I've had many occupations, sometimes two at the same time, from actress, pastry chef, nurse and waitress. Now I'm the head nurse in a family medicine residency program. I get to work with and train doctors who are dedicated to providing the best possible care to a population that is often overlooked and has challenging health issues.

I get weepy watching videos of solders coming home to their dogs and laugh at solders coming home to their cats.

I find smart men to be very, very sexy; I am a very happy brain and ethical slut. If you have or can fake a Scots accent I'm yours forever. I agree with the John Waters quote: If you go to someone's house and they don't have books; don't fuck them.

My children are happy, self supporting adults. The Lad still lives in Brooklyn but the Lass has run off to Kansas.

I love taking photos of street art, graffiti and cool stuff I see on my travels.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Having a marvelous time meeting really fascinating men on OKC.

With apologies to Lionel Bart:
I am reviewing my situation:
Can a good girl be a good girl all her life?
All those smiles and acquiescing;
I better hurry up and cause a bit of strife.

Well, maybe not a lot of strife but it rhymes.
I've been untethered from some big relationships/responsibilities/obligations. My husband and my dog died last year; if I had a pickup truck I'm sure it would have broken down. I am now examining how those events have changed my life; many options are open to me. It is really exciting and just a little scary. Picture a dirigible with several dangling cables. The idea of becoming someone's one and only is not what I'm desiring. I would be a good secondary, tertiary or quadrantary (not sure if this is a word- if you know the proper one please let me know) partner.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
bouncing back and making lemonade.
I am very good at receiving back and foot rubs, just try me. Some have said I'm not bad at giving them either.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not really sure. It might depend on what role I'm playing. For the most part, I try to put people at ease and make them feel welcome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:Nonfiction:Infections and Inequalities, The Great Influenza: An excellent explanation of America from 1870-1919, viruses and the history of medicine. I can depend on the following to keep me reading and thinking: most of John Irving, all of Garcia Marquez, Orwell, Douglas Adams, Dahl's books for children, Graham Greene, Elizabeth Gundy, Robert Hellenga, Helen De Witt (though she has only two published novels), and Life and Fate by Grossman.

Shows: Frank Snowden's lectures: Pandemics of the Western Hemisphere. They're on Youtube. Trust me, the dude is great. The Wire, House of Cards (Brit and USA: and oh my gosh the Yank version does have more sexy bits. For a woman who likes a bit of woman on man on man, it's quite refreshing), Fringe( though it had huge flaky parts) , Homeland, Orange is the New Black.
Radio: Most anything on NPR: Wait, Wait don't tell me, TAL, Radio Lab (lots of stuff from WNYC), and quiz shows on the BBC. Member of WNYC.

Music: Johnny and Rosanne Cash, Regina Spektor, King Pleasure, Little Jimmy Scott, Asleep at the Wheel, Shubert, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, murder ballads, Monk, Dizzy, Desmond, Tony Bennett (a very sexy singer and truly kind person), Fateh ali Khan, cool stuff I hear on Spinning on Air whose artists I can't remember.
My son has a hardcore band called To The End My Dear. I love his music because I'm his mom but I'm not a big hardcore fan.

Theater: New plays, old plays, new twists and circus. I wasn't too into Tony and Cleo at the Public, if you disagree tell me what I missed. Olivier's Lear is something I could watch again and again. I will always try to see productions of: Three Sisters, Uncle Vanya, Richard III, Henry V, Cymbeline,The Skin of Our Teeth, Fool for Love, Lie of the Mind, Cowboy Mouth (okay anything by Mr. Sheppard) Robber Bridegroom, Sweeny Todd.

Movies: Peter Greenaway or Spike Lee; anything that these two lads make is true art. All time faves: The Royal Tanenbaums, Magnolia, Pulp Fiction, Melancholia, Shadowlands, His Girl Friday, Philadelphia Story, Bringing up Baby, Double Indemnity ( such a sexy movie), Closetland, The Only Lovers Left Alive.

Food: Yet to meet a cuisine in which I couldn't find something I liked. Fresh tastes, spicy, citrus, earthy tones like beets are all appealing. That said, I'm not a great fan of Glatt Kosher or the Thai food you find in New York.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
eye glasses
spell check(forever) and The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 6thEd. (for the next year or so)
caffeine in all of its forms
my job- I really love it and it pays the bills
the ability to communicate (Locked in Syndrome is a living hell)
swear words-if they didn't exist I'd have to invent them
I have lived without sex but don't want to anymore.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Polio and how the poor get shafted again and again. I have a fascination with infectious disease. Viruses and bacteria are really amazing creatures.
Is April really the cruelest month? I'm so happy to have survived May.
How wonderful the pads on the paws of my cats feel.
That some agnostics "are pretty serious about it".
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to avoid doing homework. Want to distract me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not really private but truly sinful, bad and I would go to hell if I ate one:I would really like to try ortolan.
I am not monogamous.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are happy with your life but would like some company for the road. Life's scars have given you good stories and character. Your baggage, hey, it's inevitable, is either not so burdensome or you are happy to throw it overboard. Or you are Alan Rickman.
