My self-summary
With a name like this chances are pretty good that I engage in tarantism. You gotta look up the meaning of this word and then you will find the humour in it.

Of course, I could write all sorts of things about how wonderful I am. These facts are probably all true. Of course, because I am prefect in every way. HEHEHE.

I know, I know. Bad joke.

Seriously now, who am I and what am I looking for on this site.

Who am I?

This is me in early May 2016. I am someone who is going through a lot of changes right now. I got laid off in March 2016 and just this past week I have sold my house. I am looking forward to a new adventure. I don't know where I am going, and I don't know how I am going to get there. But I will figure it out. I have always been very fortunate, and beautiful things happen to me, even though it may not always seem that way at the time. So I am going on an adventure and should happen to meet someone who is willing and able to join me, I would be happy. If not, I also will be happy to go on the adventure alone.

Here is what I am looking for.

I want someone who has a sense of fun and doesn't take herself overly seriously. It is my hope that she can see the humour in many things and together I want someone to laugh with. I want someone that is interested in others; is able and willing to compromise; is warm and caring; and is willing to talk openly about her needs and/or our differences of opinion in an environment of equality and mutual respect. The same will be returned.

If that interests and describes you - let's talk. Maybe even plan to meet.
What I’m doing with my life
I am at the cusp of a rapid, transitional state. It is a very exciting new chapter of my life. I am fortunate that have the opportunity to do this at a time when it is only a dream for others. I have a clean canvass with a pocket full of paints and brushes.

Now I just need to figure out what the picture will look like. Then make it happen.

Life has been very good to me. I cannot complain (well, I suppose I could, but who is listening and for that matter most people don't care). It is scary sometimes, but under it all, I have an incredible sense of peace and calm. I know that wherever I end up, it will be an incredible place. If the universe finds someone amazing who can assist in painting the canvass, I will find room for her to join me in the voyage.
I’m really good at
whole bunch of nothing!!! HEHEHE

I have no idea what I am really good at, as I just do what needs to be done to the best of my abilities and go from there.
The first things people usually notice about me
The superhero cape attached to my shoulders and the tights that I must wear as part of the costume.

After that, they usually notice my eyes and smile and often come across as being somewhat shy and take a while to open up at first meeting, because as you would know, superheros try to blend in with their surroundings until needed.

People often find I am easy to talk to and it is probably because I genuinely like other people and their company.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Historically I am a voracious reader, but currently have most of my books in storage. Most of these books are non-fiction. In some ways I feel like a part of me is lost without them. But then the internet is increasing the speed of real time information, but the downside is that I seem to be developing the attention span of a gnat. Who knows if that is a good thing or not.

I am not a big TV or movie type person maybe because I never converted my tv to digital or cable from rabbit ears when it went that way last summer - so I currently do not have tv right now. I enjoy dramas, crime and human interest and biographically-based stories. The TV shows I watch, when I watch, tend to be similar to the movies.

I very much enjoy music of all genres. Quite fond of classical, operas (on Saturday afternoons - it is an old tradition for me), jazz, classic rock, alternative, folk, blues - new music, old music to everything in between. My music interests are very, very (did I say very) broad. I am not particularly fond of mainstream top 40 country - and only allow myself to indulge in that genre during Stampede Week - because it is a losing cause to fight that battle.

Food? Yes please!!! I will try everything once, and more often than not more than once. If you put food in front of me I will eat it. I enjoy a wide assortment of world cuisine, and would like to know how to make some of it. I have a fantastic kitchen that is definitely under-utilized, but I only use it when I have time to do so.
The six things I could never do without
Obviously food and water and a place to rest my head.

This is a tough one, because there should be more than six things on this list. However, we are resilient people and we can do without a lot of things we think we could not do without. I want to be surrounded by beauty, respect, tolerance, good health, good food, friends and family. Oh and whirled peas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I should be thinking about!!! LOL

Oh and I am trying to figure out new ways to create whirled peas!! (I feel like I am in a Miss Universe pageant, just typing these two words out)

Oh and I guess I could add another thing, I wonder why this goofy site and all their analytics think that I am not very romantic. Obviously, I haven't answered the right questions, or they are just blowing smoke.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually do something, but more often than not I am shocked to realize it is Friday already and then try to figure out what to do on the weekend - or that night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I might not be as perfect as I think I am!!! I know it is hard to believe. Some might think it is shocking.
You should message me if
1.) You want to chat; 2.) you are interested; 3.) you just want to find out more about me; 4.) you saw something interesting that you want to ask about; 5.) you were testing out buttons to make sure they work and one of the buttons happened to be contact this person ... or 6.) you had your hand on the mouse which was hovering on top of the contact this user button as you sneezed - and it clicked by accident. LOL
