Regarding the "work" photo... I have two degrees (in other fields) but work in an oil refinery in order to pay the bills and manage a comfortable lifestyle.
FYI - I cannot see if you "like" my profile so please send a message if you like what you see or are looking for a response. :-)
Tried getting back into the "gym thing". It didn't last. Have a treadmill now and it's working out great! Also tracking my steps. Goal is 10K minimum per day.
My latest endeavor is learning to play the bagpipes. Lessons started in July of 2015 and totally enjoying them plus the people I'm meeting through them! Just started learning to play the actual bagpipe itself. That involves a whole different set of techniques than the practice chanter. Lord, what did I get myself into?!?! LOL!
Movies: My favorite movies follow suit but with comedies and musicals added in the mix. I also love the old black and white movies on TCM channel (especially comedies with Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, etc.) Oh, and some "chick flicks" too (like "Under the Tuscan Sun", "Nights in Rodanthe" [Gear is to-die-for!], "The Holiday", "The Bucket List"...)
Shows: My DVR list is as follows... NCIS (DC & NOLA), Elementary, Grimm, Blue Bloods, Madam Secretary, Lost Girl, The Librarians, Haven, Perception, Defiance. Still trying to decide if Supergirl stays or goes. NOVA is a great show and usually the Science channel has something interesting on. Don't think I spend my life in front of the TV tho. The DVR is set for new releases only and I usually catch up on them just before bed or when I take a "couch-potato day". I would TOTALLY be taping "Game Of Thrones" if I had HBO. LOVED the books!
Hoping to see some stage shows in the city in 2016. Rumor has it that we will finally be getting our scheduled days off instead of overtime that year. Would like to do an overnight in NYC sometime, also.
Music: Rock/Southern Rock, Blues, Zydeco, Classical, Alternative, and Country are all music I like to listen to depending on my mood. No rap! Limited Jazz. Some local groups I enjoy going out to see are Blackthorn and Dr. Ben's Backbone Blues Band. I also enjoy dressing up and going out to listen to the Philadelphia Orchestra on occasion. I especially enjoy them at the Mann Center when they accompany movies with the music track!
Food is in a state of flux at the moment. My favorites are steak, crab legs, prime rib, turkey, and generally whatever is bad for me. LOL! Not usually a picky eater and open to trying ethnic foods. I've been exploring Thai food for a while. Exercising and watching what I eat now to avoid going on cholesterol lowering meds (It's hell getting old!) and to get ready for my youngest daughter's wedding in August 2016.
