I've been getting into dragon boating which means that with any luck by the end of the summer I will be able to kick some serious arm-wrestling ass, but for the present means I spend a couple days a week whining about my sore abs.
I'm an animal and plant lover. I have cats & snakes, 5 zillion houseplants and a garden. I have one tattoo, hopefully with more to follow. Volunteering is an important part of my life. I love the blog "Hyperbole and a Half". I'm a fundamentally chill gentle person who really enjoys her aggro side. My perfect summer day involves floating the river and then going for a giant burrito.
I should really admit, I'm a bit of a snob and dork. I really enjoy organizing my books, I get a weird sense of accomplishment when I completely finish reading an Economist, I will not drink that Budweiser, I completely judge people who order their steaks well done, I can tell you all manner of factual & completely useless datum about your cup of coffee and I have a really difficult time being tolerant of intolerance.
That said, I like getting dirty. In my group of girlfriends, I'm the one who gets called to change a flat tire or make the DVD player work, etc. I firmly believe that if I apply myself I can figure out most anything. I find confidence very sexy.
