My self-summary
It brings me great joy to snatch a friend or coworker's phone when they aren't looking and set Michael Jackson's mugshot as their wallpaper (I do this on people's desktops as well). I love the sound of the rain when I'm going to bed. I believe that most experiences brings us closer to self-actualization. I once convinced someone that Rick Moranis actually played the male lead in Basic Instinct. You never have to guess what I'm thinking or feeling as it usually is flying out of my mouth and painted all over my face. My dog sleeps in bed with me and this is non-negotiable. As I get older I find myself having very little tolerance for bullshit; life is way too short to put on a show. I figure we are all messed up and wonderful in our own special ways and our job is to love each other as wholes. I am highly inappropriate, yet can mingle in the most professional ways. I love to create almost anything. This weekend I'll be converting an old end table into a dog bed. I'm emotional and comfortable with my extreme emotions. I've had the same best friend for 20 years; we still talk on the phone every day on our ways to work. I celebrate people's differences. I've been told I have a strong personality, which I never know whether to take as a compliment or an insult. My bedroom is my sanctuary. My life's quest is to find the perfect pillow. I'm an open book; my heart is on my sleeve no matter how many times I promise to hide it under my pant leg. I can and will bring humor into almost any situation. I don't understand why people like "Two and a Half Men". I absolutely do not NEED a man in my life. My life is very full, however I would love to find a true, unconditional partnership with the right person.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a certified Child Life specialist. Our goal is to ease any negative psycho-social side effects of hospitalization on children through preparation, distraction, education, support and cultivation of positive coping skills. I love what I do. Earlier this week I had an awkward 12 year old boy hug me and say, "I'm so glad you were here. I couldn't have done this without you." At the end of every day I know I've made the world a little bit better. I'm in the process of starting my own business. In between patients I'm bantering with doctors and nurses. Let me tell you, people who choose to work in Pediatrics are the most fun, inappropriate and compassionate people there are! When I'm not at work, I'm trying to keep my dog from getting gang banged at the dog park, having meals with friends, painting or making some kind of art, camping, attempting to make people believe outlandish things or sleeping. I love sleeping. Oh, and I'm a little obsessed with orcas. I know everything about them and dream of doing a week long kayak trip in the Johnstone Strait with the northern residents.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think this is a weird question. I think about everything and I'm pretty sure everyone does. I think that at least 80% of thinking is repetitive and non-productive; therefore, I work on NOT thinking. I do often think about the state of the world and human kind and what has become of us and whether we are really evolving or actually devolving. Ugh, now I need to stop thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
No Friday is the same. Sometimes I'm wild and unruly and misbehaving. Sometimes I'm in bed at 8pm.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not a private person, so I don't know what to say here. Oh, ha . . . I had a dream the other night that I got in trouble at work for the Michael Jackson mugshot shenanigans. Last night I walked my dog at midnight in gnome pajamas.
You should message me if
Humor is a MUST. You must be able to laugh at yourself; not take yourself too seriously and be cleverly ridiculous. You should also be able to laugh at me; I'm silly.

You think we could have fun together.

You know that Nick Cage is a fraud, posing as an action hero.

You understand that West Seattle is the Promise Land.

You can help me keep my dog from getting gang banged at the dog park.

You live in the Seattle city limits.
