Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a highly educated, self-sufficient elitist snob, divorced with
two grown daughters, looking for an intellectual sparring partner
with an occasional time-out in le sack.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
looking for world peace free from suffocating religious intolerance

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a former Marine officer who gave up a promising career
teaching high school history/social studies when I insanely
voluntarily enlisted to take advantage of the USMC's THEN-tacit
policy of not separating married officers (AND women were not
deployed to combat zones and were discharged if found to be
pregnant...yawn) - a move that kept my now ex-husband (a draftee
and also a promising history/social studies high school teacher)
from being deployed to Vietnam and having his ass shot
off...yawn...While hurriedly answering this question last night - I
was drinking champagne. One of my proudest political moves is
voting for Jimmy Carter - AND, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are
international war criminals.
