I read the NY Times but also peruse The Onion; I listen to NPR in one minute and switch to a country station to sing along in the next; I have no compunction about dropping a word like "compunction" in conversation if it's appropriate on the one hand, but use the expression "No way, dude" all too often on the other. Get the picture?
*This is where a super-smooth segue should go, but I got nuthin'!*
I am also family-oriented and care a lot about the people in my life.
Hmm...What else? I'm trying to live my life in a way that leaves each person I meet a little better off for having known me.
Putting myself in someone else's shoes before I react and having insight into why people may act the way that they do in a situation.
Shattering people's stereotypes about what it means to be on the north side of 40.
Making people laugh.
A Smattering of Movies: Inception, Garden State, Aliens, The Departed, Talladega Nights, Hi-Fidelity . . . the list is endless!
Music: I like a little bit of everything, except rap and speed
metal. I even like country, just not the twangy, redneck-patriotic,
we'll put a boot-in-your-ass kind. I am also disturbingly addicted to karaoke. =)
Food: I'm largely an "equal opportunity consumer" - pizza, pasta, real Southern-bbq, hamburgers, Thai, Indian, Chinese . . . Bring. It. On. I also like "fine dining" (one of my good friends is a professional chef).
- Ways to grow my business.
- Ways to create a sense of "community."
- My "future" life when I will learn to play the guitar and become a great salsa dancer. ;-)
I tend to be attracted to women that manage to seamlessly blend being a "girly girl," with being down to earth and having a good sense of humor.
I also value being with someone that is active and devoted to developing some common interests. We don't have to like ALL the same things, but part of a relationship is being open to bringing a few new things into each other's worlds!
Lots of people talk about loving to travel, and that's great, but honestly, I am WAAAAY more impressed by someone that has journeyed inward and gotten to know herself well.
Any of this sound like you? Well, what are you waiting for? Drop me a line!
