My self-summary
I'm what has been affectionately termed 'left of center'. People either love me or hate me, and usually can't say why. It took me a while, but I kind of like it. Before you sigh and roll your eyes, people had to explain this to me over and over again before I got it. It's not something I try to 'impress' folks with. In fact, I don't really try to impress anyone ever.

I am feisty, somewhat loud, I can be unintentionally abrasive, but really I'm pretty squishy.

I dig on being honest, hate passive-aggression, and while I can field a confrontation if I have to, I'd rather not. I am barefoot a lot, kind of squirrelly, and my brain-to-mouth filter is not so great. I also swear like a dockworker once I'm comfortable. Or tired. Or excited. I'm pretty excitable.

I am not a cynic. I may have a sardonic sense of humor sometimes, but I also like slapstick, and this dichotomous equation holds throughout my entire personality. I love celebration and holidays, I think Valentine's Day is great, I love St. Patrick's Day and I'm not Irish (mostly Dutch actually), I love Cinco de Mayo because screw the French (I don't really hate the French), and Dia de los Muertos is celebrated in my home (again, no Latin blood here). I take what I like in the world around me and I adhere it to my own. What fits I keep, what doesn't I let go of.
What I’m doing with my life
Raising my two small boys, keeping more than busy with whatever odd things I pick up to do, trying to get out of the city and acquire some land. That's the long term goal. The short term? Laundry.
I’m really good at
Putting one foot in front of the other until I get to where I'm going. Also, I make rad pinatas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I have 'presence', that people notice my sheer existence. Since I don't like being the center of attention for any length of time (not that I don't like attention, just not a whore about it) it is often awkward.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a-books)I am going to be more elaborate here all of a sudden; I don't have a lot of chances to read with the way my life is constructed at the moment, but I do love stories more than nearly anything. I'm not a big fan of nonfiction, to read anyway. I read many genres, but I have always had a soft spot for folktales. I love zen stories so very very much, and mythologies, faerietales, legends, all of the short simple things that convey so much intense meaning, morals, and deep thought in a compact form make me very happy. I love how different places create different styles of stories, how the pictures can be richly painted in just a few words, how emotion can be pulled out of a person in an intense fashion that stays with them the rest of their lives. It's my favorite. The rest of my tastes are all over the place. I'm picky, but like most things, I'll enjoy it if it's good.

b-movies)The kind you watch that don't suck,(cult, B-rated, bizarre, and poorly funded movies do not necessarily suck)

c-music)Disco isn't music. Other than that, I seem to find something in every genre that I like. I grew up on John Prine, ZZtop, the Oldies station, various folk music, and euro trash. My parents ruined me to being able to stick with a single taste.

d-foods)The kind you eat...mmm....foood... Sadly, I can no longer have gluten. But if you want to know what really turns my foodie crank, I love food that is made with really good ingredients, no preservatives or crappy dyes, from decadent to light and airy. I love it all.
Six things I could never do without
Water, air, gravity, an electrical charge in my brain, the cacao bean, and stories.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of stuff. And escaping to the not-city.
On a typical Friday night I am
Collapsing from a busy week and gearing up for weekend plans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really hate clowns.
You should message me if
You're not creepy, you're genuine and can hold a decent conversation. I'm not picky, just be who you really are from the get-go because its a waste of time to be anything else.
The two of us
