My self-summary
I decided to update my self summary from "Funny, likes Doritos, good income." to the following...

Funny, likes Sweet Chili Heat Doritos, good income. Still not detailed enough... Okay, how about this...

I have incredibly high expectations of myself, and the type of man I will be for my partner. Providing the best in every aspect of a relationship... Romance, passion, understanding, support, yum yum food, intimacy, curiosity, thoughtful tokens of love, and a connection above and beyond friendship, like a best friend on steroids, if steroids were not terrible... It's rare to find a women who appreciates these qualities and able to reciprocate in kind, while also maintaining her strength and independence. But I'm optimistic we will find each other! Do you believe in Unicorns? *smile*
What I’m doing with my life
Warping the young impressionable minds of teenagers when they are most vulnerable. Have taught Civics, Math, Drama Improv, Animation, Audio, Video, Graphic Design, Green Industries, and Sculpture. I have a wide variety of interests, and I've been fortunate to be able to share my experience with students and hopefully inspire creativity in their lives, either through art or nature. Other than that, I am currently studying ballet and writing my first of a series of novels. After 3 photography exhibitions in 3 years (which I admit might have been a bit much) I decided to focus on my other artistic love, writing. I've been told I'm a storyteller and I believe they are right. *smile* Who knows where it will take me? I'm also working on being carless to reduce my carbon footprint.
I’m really good at
Cooking... With or without a French accent. Giving tax advice to 1st graders. Being romantic and thoughtful. Art exploration, acquisition and creation. I'm pretty good at using a fisheye lens which isn't as easy as it may seem.
The first things people usually notice about me
The long stem rose I carry in my mouth and the look of seduction in my eyes. If only. But jeeze... that would be awesome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Mostly a wide variety of non-fiction books including how-to books on painting/drawing, gourmet cooking and planting. Getting lost in novels isn't as frequent as I'd like, but always cherished.

Movies: Anything but horror and war movies, with a particular love for documentaries.

TV: When I find time to watch TV, it's usually Reality TV shows. I think it's the voyeur in me. Enjoyed Narcos last year.

Shows: Love the theatre and Ballet. Pirouettes are awesome!

Music: It's a mixed bag... Mostly melodic catchy tunes that motivate hip shaking, but also deep cuts of prominent and established musical geniuses, of which many have evaded me. But I'm not done exploring.

Podcasts: Freakonomics and CBC Ideas. Wondering if I should start The Joe Rogan Experience. I heard it's great!

Food: I cook a wide variety of cuisines and constantly being creative and learning new skills in the kitchen. My ideal mate would love to cook with me so we could feed each other as we create. Because who doesn't love licking the spoon? I tend not to order civiche, Bloody Caesars, barbecue or steak when out as it's impossible not to compare it to my own.
The six things I could never do without
1. Sex Panther Cologne *laughs*
2. Super Hero Undies *I wish*
3. Art *I can be serious sometimes*
4. Dr Seuss *Because I'm often in the company of children*
5. Fisheye lens *both fun and challenging*
6. Pixie Dust *why not?*
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why raspberry Slush Puppies are blue. And Halloween costumes. It's my favourite day of the year! I enjoy dressing as concepts of the moment. I've dressed as a Carbon Footprint, Swine Flu, Alberta Tar Sands, the Gardiner Expessway, Hurricane Irene (I lived in NYC that summer) and First Past The Post. All scary things.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am always on the move, hitting art galleries and openings (more Thursday than Friday), going to cultural events, film festivals (All-Access Hot Docs Pass this year), sports venues on occasion for the live experience, restaurants when I want to be inspired, theatres (stage and films) and social venues. It's challenging to be devoted to culture while also working towards my goals and dreams. Time is precious, so I only sleep as much as my body requests.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm disappointed that OK Cupid rates me as less playful than other users. I fashion myself incredibly playful...ask any kid who has played with me! It's obviously a glitch. *smile*
You should message me if
You are ambitious and won't settle for less than an extraordinary life. You agree with the words of W. Scott Peck; "Love is the total commitment to the full development of the potential of the other." I'm also a sapiosexual, which is not to say physical attraction isn't important, but without depth of character, beauty alone won't get us very far... Beauty captures the attention, but character captures the heart. Most compatible with Monkeys and Dragons, if you believe that stuff.
