My self-summary
Before I get into the "meat" of my profile, let me say one thing. If you look at my profile and don't message me, I'll assume you are not interested. So if I'm wrong on that, then message me. Plain, pure and simple.

Second, I pretty much consider myself atheist. Don't express interest in me if you can't handle that. If we can agree to disagree and be respectful of each other's beliefs (I can do that, can you?) then we can deal with anything. And don't think you can change me. At some point you either accept someone as they are, or you move on.

And now, we return you to your regularly scheduled profile...

I moved to Olympia the end of September and have been telling myself to rewrite my profile. So now I'm here, and I'm not really sure what to say... I see this a lot in profiles, it's almost cliché, and now I'm part of the cliché!

I love it here, I knew I wanted to be here when I went through the peninsula on vacation July 2013. It just suits me, and I'm here to stay. I take a walk downtown almost every day during lunch, and I just wander around with a shit-eating grin, I can't remember ever being this happy to be someplace.

Prior to coming here, I hadn't dated in a few years. Why? Well, I was either travelling for work, or I was living in a place that was not "permanent" for me. I'm not the type to start something I have no intention of finishing, and I'm not a user of people. I also didn't want to be in a position that I, or someone I was interested in, might have to make career and/or living location decisions based on a job change. It didn't seem fair to me. So that's the type of person I am.
What I’m doing with my life
is enjoying it. Walking every day, going for long walks / hikes on the weekend. I am very at ease in my life now.
I’m really good at
what I do for a living. I work for the state of Washington and get told daily by my boss how great I am and how happy she is that I am there. I'm still trying to get used to her calling me a whiz kid, I mean she's not that much older than me, so yeah, it feels kind of weird.
The first things people usually notice about me
is the kindness in my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Wheel of Time series, Edgar Rice Burroughs. I've also read a lot of Anne McCaffrey, Katherine Kurtz, Isaac Asimov, Piers Anthony and other authors. I recently read Conn Iggulden’s Genghis Kahn series and his Julius Caesar series. I am an avid reader of history and used to have an extensive collection of history books until I got tired of lugging them around every time I moved. I ended up doing the eBay thing, and those I couldn’t sell, I donated to the library. I also subscribe to several different magazine.

Movies: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Tarzan, old horror classics, Clint Eastwood, Errol Flynn, The Princess Bride, Ferris Bueller, The Die Hard series, Back to the Future series, Star Trek, Star Wars, James Bond.

Shows: I used to subscribe to the Cleveland Playhouse when I lived in Cleveland. They also had the “Children’s Playhouse” where young actors would give performances for children. I found the performances by the young actors hired for these to be refreshing. I'd love to enjoy some local theater with someone special.

Music: I'm eclectic. With 30 days of music on my iPod if you ask for it, there's a good chance I have it (except for Opera). Robert Palmer is playing right now. Next on tap: Old Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Mozart, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Jethro Tull, The Zombies, Blondie, Eve Moon, The Cranberries, Bob Marley, The Diamond Head Boys, Bon Jovi Loreena, McKennitt, Enya... Get the picture?

Food: Almost anything with Chicken. Pizza. Mexican. Italian. Chinese.

Beverages: I drink lots of milk, doesn’t help the glucose level, but at least it’s healthy. I used to be a Pepsi person until I had to unload of the sugar. I now drink Coke with Splenda. Sometimes, I “fortify” the Coke with Meyer’s Dark Rum (Dad claimed that Meyer’s is the only alcohol that didn’t raise his blood sugar level. I didn’t have the heart to tell him it’s not true, but to honor his memory, I drink it on occasion).
The six things I could never do without
My legs.
My arms.
My hands.
My eyes.
My feet.
My brain.

Everything else in life is nice to have.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the fact that sometimes I think too much! :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
being a nerd. If I'm not playing D&D, I'm out LARPing. Great ways to meet crazy people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I hate tear-jerker movies. Yeah, that's right girls, I might cry...
You should message me if
- you're serious about starting something and you can finish what you start.
- you can have a relationship without discussing religion or politics. I personally have no issues with being with someone who's religious, or someone whose politics are contrary to mine, but it'll only work if we agree to disagree.
- you live within an hour of me. If you're somewhere outside of Washington, I'm assuming you're probably a dating scammer.
- you have a picture. If you don't have a picture, I'm assuming you're probably a dating scammer.
