I like politics, reading, movies, teaching, my kids, walks, bicycling, swimming, eating & cooking, talking, and listening to music. I try to exercise every day. The elliptical and iPad work well together. I love to travel, especially to Europe and California....I can't see "likes." Please send a short note if you do like....And for some reason OK Cupid doesn't forward my mail so please be patient if I don't answer immediately.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a professor... I help raise two teen-age daughters.
I’m really good at
watching t.v. and movies...I'm okay at writing, cooking, teaching, talking, thinking, and friendship....I'm great at modesty, if I say so myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. I am simultaneously shy and gregarious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like ethnic food, from soul food to Chinese, Indian, Thai, and Ethiopian. I tend to listen to Gershwin, Cole Porter, singers & standards. Favorite shows: "Broadchurch" and "Foley's War." Not sure yet about "Wolf Hall." I like foreign & independent movies, including the documentary about Amy Winehouse. I also liked "Trainwreck."
The six things I could never do without
This sounds so superficial. I rely on my phone, iPad, fountain pen (how pretentious), bicycle, and coffee maker. The world would be worse without wine, bourbon, gin, vermouth, and a lemon peel. Am I up to six yet?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I'm inside on such a nice day? Will texting and t.v. ruin civilization?...If Hillary Clinton's campaign falls apart who should get the Democratic presidential nomination?...Please, Lord, don't let Donald Trump, Ben Carson, or Ted Cruz get near the White House, even for a visit.
On a typical Friday night I am
I usually have a candle-lit dinner with my celebrity friends and then go to a jazz or dance club. I pride myself in being called up to the front of the line to get into the club and then sit in the VIP section. Meryl Streep is more fun than you might think and she sure can hold her liquor...Once in a blue moon, just for a change, I go out for Chinese.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not sure I was totally honest about my typical Friday night. I didn't answer too many questions on-line, but let's look at the list on our first date.
You should message me if
