I am me. I try not to be anyone else. I am multifaceted. Which means I usually can get along with most people and adapt to most situations. I like many different things. Some things that seem diametrically opposed to one another. For example, my idea of camping is tents and cooking on a fire. My idea of vacations are nice hotels and great restraunts. And never should one ever look like the other. KOA campgrounds in rv's or fifth wheels with all sorts of hook ups and people in slots next to one another ruins both camping and vacationing.
Of Life, Of Death, Of Decay, Of Time
Sometime during gradeschool, I read a description of life that has always remained with me.
Life is simply the process of death. The ultimate purpose of life is to grow, decay, and die. Life itself is decay. From the moment of birth, we begin to die.
Children, in the rush to grow up so they can do what they want don't realize they are trying to rush and skip over the best part of life. The growth before the obvious decay sets in.
I wonder just how much of how I view the world was influenced by reading this when in grade school.
Maybe this is why I don't wear a watch. Even though I have a couple I like. I hate having to live by a clock. It is like it is measuring out my life for me. I prefer to enjoy it as it happens. I prefer to drift through time. Not through life. Do you get the difference?
Life is active. Life is something we make happen. The living of it, that is. But Time is something that happens to us. Something imposed upon us.
I have a different view of time and what is important. I wonder where I get that from. All the native american legends and folklore I read in primary school? Who knows.
I removed the Filk lyrics that were here. Even with the note that I didn't write it, it was written and performed for a sci-fi con, people keep emailing me thinking I wrote it and that it is about me. So to end the confusion, I've deleted it.
I am loyal, unique, and curious
I'm short, curvy, need to lose about 40 lbs. But only because it makes the clothing I like most work better if I'm smaller. I love clothing. I love jewelry even more. I love shiny sparkly things. Even if it isn't jewerly.
Roomate tells me I'm a magpie.
PS. Because of the emails I got: I want to lose weight for fashion reasons. It has NOTHING to do with not loving myself enough. For crying out loud. Don't assume everyone who wants to lose some weight has low self esteem or doesn't like themselves enough. I adore great food. It is wasn't for clothing, I wouldn't care. I like myself the way I am. But I realize that the clothing I love doesn't work with my shape. So I want to lose weight so I can were the things I truly love. I also still have a mental image of me from when I was 120 pounds. I don't see myself this size. So I'm always surprized and shocked to see myself in mirrors and pictures. I just want the outside to reflect the real me.
Men going after ladies young enough to be thier daughters disgusts me. Men going after ladies young enough to be their daughters makes me think of pedifiles and makes me wonder about their mental and emotional stability. Men going after ladies young enough to be their daughters are more likely to be constantly going after a younger model and are not in it for the long haul. Men going after ladies young enough to be their daughters are more interested in trophy brides and want someone who makes them feel young are not interested in a relationship of equals. Men going after ladies who are young enough to be their daughters have a daddy complex and are not for me. I have a father thank you very much. And he is a great dad. I don't need another.
email me, I hate the new IM system. I tend to not notice them and miss them all the time.
And please, no IM's or messages that just say Hello, or hi or variations of that. If you want to get my attention, you have to say something of substance.
I don't answer woo's. There is nothing in there. Okay, I've answered one or two. But only because the person's profile impressed me enough to write back. Which means, don't woo if you have an empty profile.
If your screen name is an obvious sexual reference, I won't even open it up. Grow up.
And if you are my father's age, don't bother.
