My self-summary
Hello OKCupid! After a looooong intermission, I'm back, single, and ready to mingle. I'm a Registered Medical Assistant and I work full-time for Northeast Medical Consultants. I'm also an ordained interfaith minister. I love that my work allows me to make a difference in other people's lives. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my friends, cooking, writing, target shooting, and knitting...that's right, I'm a priest who knits and knows how to handle a firearm.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning more and more about myself with help from people who care about me, and who I care about. Mostly I'm working on staying on top of bills and trying to balance responsibilities with having fun and enjoying being with friends and family.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. There is no telling what is going to come out of my mouth, but hopefully, it will put a smile on your face. Honorable mentions go to: writing, singing, cooking, and does being able to start an I.V. on just about anything that moves count?
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm the poster child for A.D.D. I talk a lot, tend to have too many things going on at one time to handle, and I've been known to laugh hysterically (almost to the point of an asthma attack) over the stupidest, un-funniest things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like a variety of books from a large spectrum of genre's. I'm quite fond of sci-fi, mystery/suspense, historical fiction - you know the stuff people actually LIKE to read for entertainment (with a few lurid gay romances thrown into the mix).

As far as T.V. and movies I like a little bit of everything from "I Love Lucy, to "The Walking Dead." I have to admit that, while I used to love "The Real World", I'm done with reality television. I can't sit through a show where people are famous for doing NOTHING.

When it comes to food...I like it all, except shrimp (I'm deathly allergic.) I can eat other shell fish but shrimp is a no go.
Six things I could never do without
I'm so sick of people writing "friends" or "good conversation." What does that tell anyone about the person answering this?

In all honesty, though, I kinda need my friends. I don't have a ton of them, but I do have a core group of people who really get me.

Otherwise, and in no particular order:
-Something to do. (I can't just sit around doing nothing. I don't need to be climbing a mountain, per se. I just need to have something to occupy my mind.)
-Flashlight. There is, legit, always at least one on me or within arm's reach at all times...and I have NO idea why.
-A typewriter. I'm a gadget junkie and I love my electronic devices. However, when it comes down to actual creative thought processes all the modern technology in the world cannot compare to the tactile, hands-on act of typing something out on paper. If this is too odd for you, move on the next profile.
-Knitting needles and yarn. I don't know what it is about knitting that I find so compelling, however, I love it. It passes the time on lunch breaks and long car rides (if I'm not driving, obviously) and the end result is usually something that will make a very nice gift.
-Chocolate. No explanation required there.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do people keep hurting each other? We live in an era where information is available at the push of a button. Sure we all have different life styles and nuances that can conflict with others' but what do we prove by violence? I've been a healthcare worker for almost 15 years now. I've seen a great deal of human behavior in the course of my work and my studies of human nature, but I still can't figure out why people think that hurting others will, in some way, protect them from something or provide anything more than perpetuated ignorance.

Also, how does Betty White still do all that she does at 95!!!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly, I'm probably at home recovering from the work week. However, I am usually up for anything especially if I know I'm not working the next day. Fortunately, my days of hospital night and weekend shifts are behind me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can quote, verbatim, most episodes of the Golden Girls. I'm not proud of it, but if I'm ever actually on Jeopardy it could be useful.
You should message me if
Well if you read all the way down here you might as well say hi. I only bite with permission, and who knows...we might actually like talking to each other.
The two of us
