Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I believe that laughter is one of the great joys of life. Having
someone to share that laughter with gives it more meaning. I have a
very sarcastic, dry (sometimes inappropriate, okay, mostly
inappropriate) sense of humor tempered with compassion. I am open
and honest and expect the same from those closest to me.
When I'm not working I like to keep myself creative by taking
photographs (okay, I take a lot of them while I'm working, too) and
I like to frame them myself. Mostly photos of rusty metal, graffiti
and unique perspectives of architecture. I also like to refinish
and distress old furniture ( It's a lot of fun even if it does
leave me covered head to toe in dust :)
My kids are all grown up so my parenting days are behind me (well,
I will always be a parent but they can all fend for themselves
now). Which leaves me free to take on any adventure that comes my
I grew up camping, climbing trees, riding bicycles and running
around barefoot. We also had dirt bikes and went swimming in
creeks. I'm no stranger to petting deer in the wild and love
nature. I want to get out hiking and camping more. (I'm a great
cook over the campfire :) And I'm still trying to go
But I do like my quiet moments, too. And cuddling on the couch
watching a movie is much nicer with someone to cuddle with.

I have always been an avid reader. My favorite genres are
mysteries, sci-fi and fantasy. I read most of the classics as a
child. It's hard for me to lock down just one favorite book but the
one that stands out the most to me is called The Bright Forever by
I love movies and if the story is good then it doesn't matter what
genre it is. Although, I am a huge fan of sci-fi and fantasy and
that includes campy "B" movies. I've gotten into quirky foreign
films lately, too. I'd have to say my all-time favorite movie is
The Princess Bride.
I love most kinds of music. But if it's from the 80's I will
definitely be singing along! And dancing!
I'm an omnivore. There are very few foods that I don't like.
Television; I hate commercials so I record everything. Current
shows; Vikings, Black Sails, Castle, Archer, Legit, Wilfred,
Scandal, Hell On Wheels.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Laughter. In all aspects of my life. And sometimes at
2. A sense of wonder. To remember what it was like to look at the
world as a child.
3. Experience. Trying (and sometimes failing at) new things.
Pushing my limits. Facing fears. Accomplishing goals that I never
knew I had.
4. Emotion. Allowing myself to experience whatever I'm

6. My contacts or glasses. Because I really want to see where I'm

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is typical? Depends on the Friday. Could be a film screening,
could be laundry. Maybe it's happy hour or maybe I'm prepping for
work the next day.
