I have the best job in the world and terrific friends. But I am looking for someone special to share thoughts, adventures and the simple things with. I am home and hearth oriented and looking for someone who is the same. I am drama and baggage free. However, I don't mind if you aren't. I like single mothers because I think they are very brave. But I also like women without children.
The thing I like most-besides my job and the people I care about-is learning and reading. I like intellectual stuff like philosophy and history and I prefer literature to spy thrillers and sports biographies, etc... But I know that's just me. I'm not a snob, because I watch Three's Company when it's on so I have no business making fun of anyone else's pleasures.
I also like trying new things. I recently went to a Malaysian restaurant because they had a chicken foot casserole on them menu they said was not for Americans. They were right, but at least I tried it. I am also planning to take up hiking.
But I also enjoy all the committee work and writing manuals and the rest because it gives me the chance to be creative. I am up for tenure next year, so I am a little jumpy but still having a great time.
It sure beats being chained to a desk from 9-5!
I really don't like when people say their taste in music is eclectic, but I guess that cliche really is me. I love rock (Sonic Youth, Led Zeppelin, etc...), Jazz (Coltrane, Miles and Co.) and many other types. Basically, since my parents first gave me an allowance when I was eleven I have looked for new musical kicks to the great delight of U-Haul where I have my storage locker. The first album I bought was Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road because Jodie Foster recommended it to me (that's actually true). The most recent CD I bought is the new Lily Allen.
My favorite food is pizza. I highly recommend, when you are in the supermarket, that you pick up Tree Tavern frozen pizza.
My favorite movie is Ghost World--not a horror movie! But I have to admit that, although I really don't care for Star Trek or science fiction (corny), when I am down, I like to watch Star Trek 4. I love watching those guys running around in hairpieces acting heroic.
You believe that friendship is the key part of any romantic relation ship.
But most importantly, message me if you are not looking for a pen pal. I am looking for the right person and the only way to really know is to meet. No pressure. If there is chemistry, we will know pretty quickly. If there isn't chemistry, I'm sure you are still wonderful and I wish you luck finding the right man for you.
