My self-summary

My MA is in TESOL, so I get to teach English to students from all over the world mostly at community colleges. I know some sign language, some Spanish and some German. I go to the theatre sort of a lot.
I am good with my money. I am ex-military. I still have my hair. I can stand on my head.
I spent most of January '14 in India. This January I'm going to Thailand.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach English. I own a small investment property. I volunteer my time. I write short stories. I have spare time. However, this does not mean I will always pick up your dry cleaning. I spent most of January in India. (Did I say that already?) Right now, it's like 100° in Mumbai.
I’m really good at
(nothing practical; no vacuum cleaner or toaster repair.) Writing short paragraphs and telling stories. Making you laugh. Stuff like that.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I have really cool glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies - just about everything: Lawrence of Arabia, Heavenly Creatures, Strictly Ballroom, Fido, To Kill a Mockingbird,... No kiddie or animated stuff, but lots and lots of mysteries and detective stuff.
TV: The Killing, Breaking Bad, Pasta (Korean), Top of the Lake, The Wire, Spiral, Rectify, Justify.
Books - nothing "pop." I read The New Yorker. I like classics; I read Crime and Punishment, War and Peace, and The Brothers Karamazov over a three year period, and I won't do it again. I don't read the newspaper.
Music - again everything, pretty much, but I'm not a connoisseur: George Clinton, Dave Brubeck,
John Digweed, R&B Girl Groups... No Country, except for The Mavericks; no Metal, nothing wrenching or grating.

Food - once again, all. I will not eat licorice or cilantro, but I'll try anything else. I have eaten things that were moving. (ocean minnows)
Birthday cake and BBQ'ed ribs are big favorites. (I'm eating barbecue now.)
Six things I could never do without
There aren't six things I couldn't do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's for lunch?
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not afraid of ghosts.
You should message me if
My profile is a reflection of who I am. If my profile fits what you're looking for, you won't be disappointed.
Pretty women - I like pretty women on the thin side (everyone has preferences.)
I enjoy funny, chatty, smart women.
