*trenchant, but not mordant*
*Photo: Parasailing over Lahaina Bay, being towed by speedboat.* NB. My legs are not fat. The harness pushed the soft yielding flesh forward. LMAO.
I pledge allegiance to the Scientific Method and the Grandmother Earth. I like wearing makeup every day. I will always have more shoes than you think I should reasonably own. I spend more time reading than you do, and I love Steely Dan more than you do. I value my personal autonomy, and yours, too. I am a political writer and an involuntary "information sponge." I soak up everything in any environment I enter.
You too are an information sponge, and share new ideas with me. You are busy, but our times together are filled with interaction, intense conversation and passionate intellectual and sensual adventure. We may read some of the same books and analyze them. We cook, clean, and entertain well together. We are also good at cuddling!
T'was OKCUPID that indicated that I was intellectually sexy, so I decided to adopt the label.
I tend to hit it off with programmers and other scientists ("boffins" in the UK...I love that), econ geeks, as well as artists, humanities people and social scientists. I have library cards from nine different California counties.
I work all the time for social, economic, and environmental justice. So, I am seeking divine silliness and friends who enjoy the same.
(Come out! Let’s play!) Is now replaced by "I can't come out to play now" due to arthritis needing special treatment. I am getting better but still sorer than you are on your worst day.
If you are looking for the B11chy types, I'm not your kinda woman. Although I am happy to do theatre, I don't do drama. I do not want to fight. I just want to have play and have fun.
I can also talk construction talk.
"Phillips or straight?" (In the UK they ask + or -; brilliant!)
"Hey, throw me a cold one."
I have a chop saw in my apartment. I used to have my own woodshop complete with table saw.
That makes some people hot and some people uncomfortable. You should know that I still have all my fingers.
Finished 7 years of college and top-tier law school, graduating in 2004. That was fun!!!!
I am a sole proprietor tax practitioner serving families, domestic partners, small business owners, artists, healers, and musicians. I specialize in helping people who are behind in filing their tax returns.
I do not have a license to practice law. Not because I was a bad girl, but because I didn't want it bad enough.
My son helped move me to college, and then law school. What a cool kid :) That's him in one of my pictures. He decided to get tattoos. I couldn't dissuade him, so I helped with the design. They turned out nicely!
My attitude towards life? Let's Face the Music and Dance! Diana Krall.
I am a socialist libertarian, which is not the same as a capitalist libertarian. I don't believe the fairy-tales about the "Invisible Hand" of the market.
Find out where you sit by taking the fun little quiz at PoliticalCompass.org. If you are in the lower left, let's talk!
I don't hate dogs, but I get fleas, and dogs bring fleas home from the park, even if they don't have their own! Please do not make me explain any more about the the dogs, the indoor/outdoor cats, or fleas. Please see my Journal entry here.
An old flame described me as "imaginative, sometimes to the point of annoyance." We giggled madly.
An old flame said, "I worry about you." I said, "Which thing?" He replied, "All of them." We giggled madly.
I am about Marilyn Monroe size: 14. Abbondanza. Always working to stay as healthy as possible.
