My self-summary
I used to teach high school math at a high school on the West side. Most of the kids are totally insane which is why we relate to each other so well. I grew up in Lakeview back in the day when sleek trannies and Jewish grannies would jostle each other on the crowded sidewalks creating a simply delighful social milieu. Thanks to the depredations of AIDS and capitalism that world no longer exists. Oh well. I guess you could say I'm a bit iconoclastic; don't own a car, bike everywhere and am constantly challenging the often mistaken views of others and myself. I'm looking for a woman who's kind, understanding, beautiful yet rugged, and intellectually inclined. My goals include working with likeminded individuals to improve the dietary habits of urban youth, biking through the French countryside, taking long naps on cold winter afternoons and maintaining a sense of equanimity and composure at all times. I look good in either jeans or heels.

Reading in the sun; riding my bike; basking in the absurdity of my profession.

The six things I could never do without
My bike.
Homey diners.
My netty pot.
My goofy students and even goofier colleagues.
Chinese food.
Jewish culture and its celebration of madness.
The '70s.
(I know that's more than 6. What can I say? I'm a CPS teacher; I can't count.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fascism of everyday life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Often,flat out after a week's work. If you teach you know what I mean. If I'm feeling energetic, I can often be found cycling with Critical Mass , taking in a movie or slurping down a plate of greasy noodles in Chinatown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For the longest time I thought Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name" was "You Need Love, A Band-Aid."
You should message me if
You want to.
