Sigh...I always hate this part...Kinda hard to describe oneself
succintly in 100 letters...I'm a teacher, I love animals of all
kinds...have a pet cat, though would LOVE a big dog...(hard with an
apartment, though)...HUGE Billy Bragg fan, who, sadly, most people
don't seem to be aware of...along those lines, I'm pretty
politically active...HUGE supporter of the current Nobel Peace
Prize winner...Love to travel, though, sadly, don't get to do it
much...love to ski, but ditto...Avid reader...favorite author is
Kurt Vonnegut...also Milan Kundera...favorite movies..."The
Shining"..."The Unbearable Lightness of Being"..."The English
Patient"..."Terminator"...(The FIRST one...) Gee, what else should
I say??? I'm anti-death penalty...VERY much so...(bet I lost a lot
of men right there!!!)
I am intelligent, quirky, and cuddly
What I’m doing with my life
uh...Teaching...reading...enjoying it!!! I like to cook, and do,
every night, with a new recipe every night...I never make the same
dish twice, the fun is in doing something new every time...during
baseball season (which, sadly, for my team, just ended) I go to A's
games a LOT...I care about politics a lot, and sometimes go to
community meetings involving political campaigns...but mostly I do
political things online...I get a lot of political emails to
support things that I respond to...
I’m really good at
spelling/writing/reading...I know the reading part sounds funny,
but, believe me, I've heard a LOT of teachers read stories to kids,
and they do it in a non-fluent way, like in a monotone!!! It
astounds me...they're supposed to be teaching kids how to read, how
to read with INTONATION, and they can't seem to do it
Making kids laugh and ENJOY learning...
Making people feel at ease...
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor
my sense of style
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
anything by Kurt Vonnegut or Milan Kundera...
I mentioned my movies earlier...
music: BILLY BRAGG...U2...The Police...SO much more, can't list it
all here...food too, too many favorites...Ethiopian, Indian, Thai,
The six things I could never do without
pets...ALL animals, really...
fires...(contained, of course, in fireplaces or firepits, or by
Hot tubs...(don't have one, but wouldn't want a world without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why some people are mean. And petty. I don't understand it. Why war
is apparently unavoidable. Why and how so many humans seem to have
no problem with killing other humans...I can't even kill bugs...I
save spiders from my shower...
On a typical Friday night I am
reading, cooking, watching movies...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
the first concert I went to was John Cougar Mellencamp...
You should message me if
you think you have something in common with me.
