My self-summary
Please be aware that I am a coconut (brown outside, white inside). :-) A product of a mixed relations marriage that is still being celebrated today (40 years). Race is not terribly important to me, but I've found out the hard way that it sometimes is to others.

Currently looking for someone to play Monica to my Chandler. Someone to get to know. Someone to laugh together with. Someone to share the secrets of the universe and our infinitely insignificant place in it, in hushed & whispered tones.
What I’m doing with my life
Not sure, really. I want a serious relationship, but I NEED someone to simply hang out with. Someone to make plans with once or twice a month, time & $ willing and go DO something. While I am picky about what I do and where I go, I'm open to influence and suggestion when something doesn't "sound" fun. I need to have an out of country experience and I haven't yet accomplished the first step of preparation (passport).
I’m really good at
Listening. It really is a favorite thing to do; to conversationally explore someone else's viewpoints. To flesh out all perspectives of an issue (the dramatic, the realistic, the worst case scenario) and NOT excluding the wildly ridiculous (the funny), sort of like the pace of a Friends episode! :-) I opine that I'm good at listening because I enjoy it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I will default to honesty, because (if this question is supposed to be answered in a way that (attractively) markets oneself then my honesty is going to stab me in the back. I can be incredibly nervous the first time I meet with someone, so much so that I often get tongue-tied and come across far less intelligent & far more clumsy than I actually am. Well, just less intelligent. I'm STUCK with clumsy, comes with Murphy. I've also gotten used to the taste of shoe, I'll let you guess why. BUT I'm not afraid to be corrected, or (as I like to see it) given a different take on any given subject!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a serious movie (on dvd) buff. Currently into television series like Sons of Anarchy, Parenthood, House & Nurse Jackie. I'm not averse to reading but I don't feel I've read a lot to claim any "implied brownie points" for being cultured or well versed. Food? Don't know. Too many choices, not enough refined taste on my part. Music I enjoy doesn't fit in any one genre. Probably easier to say that I don't care for cajun, bluegrass, zydeco or tejano. Music is a universal tool of expression and any tune can find someone's attraction. Am an avid gamer, so define that however you will. I won't deny it and if I have to defend it, we're wasting your time.
The six things I could never do without
In an unidentifiable order...
Fall (Love)
Winter (Warcraft)
Spring (Euphoric awakening)
Summer (cheating with this whole category, yes, I know)
Air Conditioning (There's a reason God put me in THIS century)
My pets (Linus & Bouncer)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As I imagine "Sheldon" from "The Big Bang Theory" show could quite possibly articulate, "We spend an inordinate amount of time deluding ourselves to the stark reality of the laws as applied to large numbers."
On a typical Friday night I am
...filling out another silly essay/survey/questionnaire for a personals site in another vain attempt to connect with someone special. ...obviously. Okay, not really. A typical Friday nite will catch me relieved that the weekend is here and usually at the gym. Since everyone else has a Fiday night life, all that gym equipment is just sitting there, unused!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had my eyebrows plucked once. Why on earth women go through so much pain to look "gorgeous", I'll never understand. You DO know looks are fleeting, right? You're not gonna look the same at 50, 60, 70 or 80. Think on that for crying out loud. SOME pains just aren't worth it.
You should message me if
you're looking to meet that nice guy who consistently finishes last. ☺
