Yes, my lips are naturally that color. I despise lipstick. As a trumpet player, I never took to it. I'm not gonna wipe off my lips before playing. In fact, I don't like Chapstick. I prefer SoftLips by Mentholatum.
Travel both on and off the beaten path is fun sometimes! I like to explore and read a lot about where I'm going. I'm planning less these days and just trying things. I want to see the funky things. Visiting the Mustard Museum in Madison, Wisconsin to see thousands of jars of mustard from all over the world was incredible. Where else can you get a shirt that says "Poupon U"? Have you been to Spook Caves in Iowa? Or the IUFOMRC in Roswell, NM? The last one is laugh out loud funny.
I'm recently divorced. I'm not looking to dive in too fast. I like to get to know someone. Friends, companionship, fun.
Sold my house. Still moving into my place in Midtown.
If marriage is on your mind in the near future, please move on. It's just not where I'm at right now.
"YOU have body art?" Geez. I guess I don't look like "that" kind of girl. Whatever "that" kind of girl is. It can't be seen unless I wear a tank top.
Makeup. I own it. I wear it now and then. A hat graces my head every day.
Don't judge a book by its cover. Nice girls have shadows too. I'm just not a raging "bad girl" on the outside.
I feel there's a time and place for some things. Being real is very important. I'm authentic, genuinely kind. I don't care much for phony people.
I'm terrible at fast recall trivia games despite having a large handle on lots of seemingly useless info. Where can you get a great deal on tires consistently? If you guessed Tire Rack, you would be going my way.
I'm not very dogmatic on politics or religion. While I identify as an agnostic atheist, I find some of the Buddhist ideas interesting from a perspective on how to live a better life with less suffering.
If being religious is important in someone you date, that's good to know. I'm not that person. I respect your choice to be a believer. Also, I expect you'll respect mine to not be a non-believer. I don't need another toaster, so no worries about me attempting to convert you to being non-religious.
I pulled a few teats in my youth. Of the bovine variety. I grew up on a family dairy farm in Wisconsin.
I am wonderfully imperfect. I frustrate myself at times. I'm finding that giving myself space to 'just be' matters a lot these days. I don't do well with being rushed.
A proper car has three pedals: accelerator, brake and a clutch AKA (wo)man pedal. For non-gear heads: manual transmission vehicle or "stick". I like The Stig. Did you know that only 15% of drivers in the US know how to drive a manual transmission vehicle? Hopefully that will help you when you play fast recall trivia.
I am a "damn Yankee" living in the South. I'm really a Cheesehead melted in the South. If Salavador Dali had only melted cheese wedges and wheels rather than clocks in that painting.....
A few lines from some fave movies:
Have you seen my stapler?
Welcome to Costco. I love you.
Are you the Keymaster?
First you wanna kill me. Now you wanna kiss me. Blow.
So, what do you say you do here?
It's got electrolytes. It's what plants crave.
Okay you primitive screw heads.
This is my brother Ruprecht.
I'm on the Garth Brooks Juice Diet.
And as that old sage Weird Al says "Dare to be Stupid".
