Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ice cream eater, tiny cat petter, Solid Gold dancer.
As of August, I'm moving here to Florida, to downtown Delray Beach;
I come from far away and yet close.
UPDATE: I'm here! I'm living in Delray Beach! Waka waka waka! I'm
here due to a pleasant family situation which leaves me open to
dating, or whatever one calls "new friends for the occasional
cocktail/trip to the mall/boudoir/Steak -n-Shake" but without a lot
of time and with a need for some advance planning, which is a bit
of a drag but for y'all in your 40s you're probably used to it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Bundling up, teaching English, reading long novels, writing
horrible poetry. UPDATE: lately I'm reading vitamin labels. It is
really boring and I'm looking forward to getting through the thirty
books on my nightstand (I'm actually not kidding about the piles of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastination of a higher order.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ineffable beauty, so I've heard. Oh, who am I kidding.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Moby Dick, An Excellent Woman, Dead Souls, maybe some others
which were fat and good. I am a scattered reader nowadays (I blame
the internet and life, but that can be overcome, I know) but I've
managed to read a lot of books about 50s New York this year,
perhaps lamenting my long gone childhood. Or would that be my
Shows: the late and sadly lamented All My Children. Since it was
cancelled I can't turn the TV on. I also like stupid comedies.
Haven't watched hour long dramas since I was a kid, I don't have
the time or patience or something.
Music: I am almost articulate about music and can name all the
Beatles' sides. Side 2 of Abbey Road, yum. And solo George really
gets me. I also like The Strawbs, The Stranglers, X, The Kinks-
well, I'm already bored of this question, but I do like
Food: I like food. I don't really care for nice food- I have more
of an appetite for pizza and burritos, probably because I'm often
out of the U.S. At home I usually cook vegetarian food, a bit
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Nothing. It's all in my head, except for my kid. Whose head takes
up about half her body weight.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Plotting gothic romances.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading vitamin labels, maybe dancing on the patio.
UPDATE: If you come by, I can add "biking down Artist's Alley" to
that list. Or "watching movies on the wall".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's not private, but there's no need to leave this little poem
without reading the words next to "Offspring". Yup!
