The six things I could never do without
1. Coffee
2. Wine/pizza (the perfect marriage)
3. Dogs
4. Writing and my ability to do so
5. My feet. I couldn't stand being without them. (Get it? Thanks, I'm here all week. Tip your waitress)
6. Some guy I haven't met yet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I will meet anyone and fall in love on OKCupid before Mike Pence makes us all turn straight.

Why every INstagram page I look at has at least one pic of the person's feet stretched out on a beach.

PUPPIES!!!

Getting my musical "Miss Humanity" to Broadway

Why the men I get in Quickmatch are either 7000 miles away, look like they fell off a wanted poster, or are wearing a dress.

why OKcupid 'friends' and 'enemy' percentage never adds up to 100%
On a typical Friday night I am
writing and/or drinking wine and/or and/or seeing a show
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once attended a nudist Tony Award viewing party.

You want to know a smart, fun, interesting guy who is not mentally unbalanced or will steal your identity
