A tomboy in childhood, I can be ladylike and un-ladylike, depending on what is appropriate at the time.
I am originally a Midwesterner, earned honorary citizenship in Oregon, then moved to San Francisco in 2005 for work and I love it here.
I'm into sports. I even go to games alone if I feel like it.
I raised two sons who are now 18 & 21 and have left the nest (mission accomplished!) I did this while finishing an economics degree and starting up a career. They have a lot of style, which I like to think they got from me.
I can be very independent, even though I love and sometimes crave companionship. I don't often group around in groups because my best friends are so different from one another that I can never get them in the same room. I lead a vibrant life, and one of these days I would like to find someone to share it with. One of these days...
I work hard, I play hard and I relax hard. I love travelling all over California, and lately I've been daydreaming of taking an extended vacation to the tropics. I have a ton of unused vacation time.
My favorite outdoor activities are golf and kayaking, both of which involve being near/on the ocean. Scoping out wildlife and exploring beaches is also fun for me. I'm a decent skier when I get out.
But face it: I'm a car-less city girl (I don't even OWN a kayak) so I'm into brainy things like economics and public policy; exciting things like pro sports; hedonistic things like playing guitar and drinking fine wine and wearing pretty dresses and getting my nails done and trying out great restaurants.
[UPDATE: I deleted all but a couple of the lists. Who needs 'em?]
FOOD. I believe that if it was cute in life, it will be delicious on a plate. Sorry vegetarians, we're probably not a match. Vegans need not apply.
Movies...The Royal Tennenbaums/Rushmore/Life Aquatic (anything Wes Anderson), Annie Hall (almost anything Woody Allen), Death Proof, Kill Bill 1&2 (anything Tarantino), Blade Runner, Empire Strikes Back, This is Spinal Tap, Boogie Nights, Kubrick, ...help me out here! I am drawing a blank so many good movies. ANIMATION!!! Anything Ralph Bakshi, Archer, Korgoth of Barbaria, old Planet of the Apes, Samurai Jack, SouthPark, the Brak Show...ah, tasteless classics.
