My self-summary
War Eagle!

What am I looking for? Well, not exactly sure. In the end, I want a relationship, but I don't think that searching for a relationship works. And I am not really wanting to rush into anything serious at the moment. I just want to date and see where things go.

I am real, straight forward, honest. I am picky.

I seem to have a song lyric in my head for everything but the chances of me being able to sing it for you to identify are slim. I can't sing.

What do I want? Intelligence! Tall, rich and handsome are good too but not necessary. Well, tall is kind of important.

Me: I like to play outside - boats, beach, hiking, canoeing, walking around town even when I should probably get a taxi but I prefer the walk.., camping, finding festivals and parades - and also go to museums, plays, concerts, eating at hole in the wall type places.. the list goes on! I love nature.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, being MacGyver, being an unlicensed counselor, and being and unlicensed landscaper, plumber, and florist. Putting on magical displaces of usefulness when it is just a display and being super useful where no one sees. Doing whatever has to be done. Trying to not appear crazy in the process.
I’m really good at
Reviving sad looking plants.
Remembering useless facts.
Laughing at myself.
Forgetting what point I was trying to make halfway through.
Figuring out new ways to solve problems
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. I cannot remember the first thing I noticed about me. Someone would have to tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Atlas Shrugged, Clan of the Cave Bear, The Lorax, Dune
Currently - The Mind's Eye by Oliver Sacks
I love Oliver Sacks
I used to read constantly but since grad school have not been as much of a reader. I should read more, now I generally watch tv series.

Movies: Jeremiah Johnson, The Princess Bride, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Boondock Saints.

Music: Classic Rock, Top 40 of the 90's, Bluegrass, Old country(but NOT country pop), some gospel, a bit of Indie Rock.

I am a cord cutter when it comes to TV. I am currently still logged into someone else's Netflix, am doing the trial month of Amazon Prime, and finally bought one of those digital converter things which means I may watch Jeopardy. I binge on series. Right now I am loving The 100, liking The Riches, and wondering how best to catch up on Game of Thrones.
Six things I could never do without
Family and the friends that might as well be family.
Books- real ones, not electronic ones. It seems like the majority of worldly possessions are books. Makes for fun moving but I don't overload big boxes.
Red Wine
Time outside. I like taking walks by myself as a sort of meditation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
World Peace.

And how I would rather have Click and Clack on my voicemail than Carl Kasell.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am rarely typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd probably admit too much as opposed to too little. Not online though. What if I run for public office or something one day?
You should message me if
A friend told me that I talk about 'smart things' too much. I asked her that - assuming it is true - how would I stop? And what exactly are 'smart things'? She said I couldn't. So if you don't mind that it is a good start at least.

I am looking for a more long term relationship than I used to but don't want to go into a date analyzing whether or not it is a long term thing. A little fun and meeting new people is good too. But if it was long term I want someone who has a job, car, valid drivers license, probably at least a BS degree even though degrees are not everything.

You should probably not message me if our unfortunate genetic line up made you several inches shorter than me because I am weird, not your fault. If you have never listened to Car Talk on NPR or heard of NPR. Or I you cannot say anything about the number 42.

Bonus for Jeremiah Johnson quoting abilities and Princess Bride but the first is way better.
The two of us
