Happy to report that I met Lars here on OK cupid and no more am I a
bird in a cage of my own making, wanting to fly free..... Clarisse!
Broken dreams go down better with fava beans and a fine
I wish for everyone success in finding what you seek.
What I’m doing with my life
I aspired to be an artist until I decided that I didn't want to
starve in an attic, so I became a nurse.
A big part of my life involves taking care of my dog, Foster. He
loves his walks in the park, doggie day care, ribeye steaks on his
birthday, belly rubs and playing with other dogs, especially blond
Now that I have met Lars, I have also two Beagles named Molly and
Huck to love also.
I’m really good at
Making fresh, delicious soups which sing with life force energy,
good for whatever ails you. Red Bell Pepper, Watermelon Gazpacho,
Curried Cauliflower and Potato, Provençal Mussel, Brazilian Fish
Stew, to name a few.
The first things people usually notice about me
I hum, sing and dance when I'm happy. My singing karaoke has had my
family falling off their chairs laughing, and I have been advised
not to quit my day job innumerable times, but my speaking voice is
pleasant and soothing.
They also notice that I love to make healthy food for one and all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series, The Power of Now, and
the Ultimate Soup Bible. Just some of my favorites.
Movies: Silence of the Lambs, What Dreams May Come, The Sound of
Music, The Girl With Dragon Tattoo (The Hollywood version)
Shows: Love It or List It (I just love interior design), Downton
Abbey. I don't really watch a lot of TV. I don't even OWN a tv, I
Music: Van Morrison, Norah Jones, Jack Johnson, Adele, Vivaldi's
Food: Fresh, delicious, nutritious, organic, and very recently
gluten free (CURSES!)
The six things I could never do without
A beautiful, artistic, and welcoming home.
The support and love of my extended family.
Brushing my teeth.
Someone to share it all with, and now I have Lars!!!! Thank you OK
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
On call for emergency surgeries ....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm thinking about writing a book about my experiences with online
dating, but I need to have more experiences first. Chapter one sets
the stage. How on 'Singles Awareness Day' (also known as
Valentines) I succumbed to E harmony's fabulous marketing strategy
and signed up for a year's prepaid subscription.
I'm thinking its gonna be a romantic comedy, with Diane Keaton and
