I try to be positive when I can, but I've been known to have "moods" and the occasional blah day, when I'd rather curl up with my son and some cartoons than deal with anyone else. I also tend to use sarcasm rather liberally, which puts some people off. Aside from that, though, I'm generally a fun person to be around.
I am perfectionistic, stubborn, and determined, and I tend to value those characteristics in others as well. Although, it's nice to have people who want to be the Robin to my Batman, nobody likes a pushover. Happy mediums are good, but not when you strive so hard to fit in, you're suddenly "medium" all over and lose all the little eccentricities that make you, you.
I'm excellent at decorating cakes, as well as an amazing cook in general. I'm available to cater small parties, but would much rather make a romantic dinner for two (hint, hint).
I love to fish, swim, hike, camp, BBQ, ride horses and snowmobiles, read, and play in my garden. Favorite indoor activities are poker, shopping, karaoke, sex, Scrabble,and video games, in no particular order of favorites.
I'm 420 friendly (Dr says so!), but it doesn't matter one way or the other to me if you partake, so long as you don't pass judgment on me. Life's too short to spend time around judgmental people!
2. Working. When I get let loose on a project, I'm tireless.
3. Listening and giving good/honest advice and opinions.
4. Making people around me happy. Usually happier than I am, lately.
5. Other activities which, being somewhat ladylike, I decline to mention publicly!
"Are you a natural redhead?" (Wouldn't YOU like to know!?)
"Wow, you have nice breasts!" Someone actually said this to me Tuesday night at the bar. And he wasn't trying to hit on me, either.
"Your shoes are untied!" This is why I prefer sandals or heels.
"You smell good! Is that Chance?" Yes, yes it is.
"Wow, that's a cool tattoo!" Why thank you!
b. Kevin Smith movies (Chasing Amy, Mallrats, etc.), Pretty Woman, There's Something About Mary, Desperado, Once Upon a time in Mexico, Interview with the Vampire, 28 Days Later, Trainspotting... and the list goes on.
c. Punk, Alternative, Metal, Classic Rock, R&B, Country, and a little bit of OLD SCHOOL hip hop. I have varied tastes depending on my mood, but I can't stomach most of the hip hop/crap music that's come out in the last five years. Sorry.
d. Indian, Thai, Sushi, Mexican, Chinese, and Italian are my six food groups.
2. A little bit of pampering. Rub my back and I start to purr.
3. Humor: Adult Swim cartoons. South Park. Webcomics. Stand-up comedy.
4. Coffee, tea, beer, and diet Pepsi. (not all at once) And vodka. Gotta love vodka.
5. Romance...but I've been surviving without it lately.
6. I used to have "hope" here, but I'm going to change this one:
Poker. Because it's fun and gives me some "grown-up" time out of the house, and it's nice to interact with people who don't take me for granted.
...What I'll do with my life if it doesn't.
...When I'll next get to go fishing/riding/gambling/karaoke-ing/debauching.
...How to juggle all my projects and still have time to sleep.
And I used to own a pair of purple Disco Stu underwear. (Why do they call it a pair when it's only one piece of fabric?) It recently went the way of the often-washed T-shirt, and the picture started wearing off.
Oh, and... I'm rather shamelessly addicted to online Scrabble. And Starbucks. If you bring me a white mocha frappuccino with a splash of hazelnut, I'm yours.
