My self-summary
I am an over-thinker, not always a good thing. I'm trying to learn to just accept and let go. I have a good sense of humor, but also a bit of a perfectionist. I think I might be a little hard to get close to, but I'm working on that. I'm pretty laid back, sometimes quiet, sometimes a big talker...I guess as the mood strikes me. I think true respect and really liking the person one is with is of the utmost importance.

I am caustic, amusing, and good listener
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a medical transcriptionist working from home (I admit spelling and grammatical errors bother me, but it's my job to notice those things, I just can't help it anymore!! Please, just use your spell-checker. Even if someone was exactly what I wanted but couldn't spell or write intelligently, don't know if I could handle it). Considering going back to school to finish my degree. Not sure it would actually change what I do, but I'd still like to do it for myself. I've recently begun writing again, nothing really good yet. I think I write better when depressed, but I have to say I'm pretty happy right now...good, yet not. :-)
I’m really good at
Arguing, making up, cooking, baking really good pies, reading people, being a friend, loving my sweet little dog, listening, understanding. Big bonus points for the animal lovers out there!
The first things people usually notice about me
Let's eyes. Yeah, my eyes (especially that third one in the middle of my forehead)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like John Updike, Dickens, Shakespeare, Stephen King, true crime stories, some fantasy, some sci-fi, but will read about anything. Love Gone with the Wind too, the book more than the movie. I've read it over and over.

I really like all movies except the gory ones. Liked Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Holiday, Dead Girl, The Life Before Her Eyes, Juno, Meet Bill, almost all Adam Sandler movies. Love Nicholas Cage, Keneau Reeves, Johnny Depp (those brown eyes!!!) and Will Smith.

As far as music, I have to say I've gone from listening to mostly top 40 stuff back to classic rock - love the Eagles, they remind me of my teenage years. All my male buddies at the time listened only to the Eagles. Really like Queen too. I also like John Mayer, Janis Joplin, Susan Tedeshi, Elton John, Nelly Furtado...and many more.

Food - Chinese, Italian, sauteed pea pods (lately), ice cream, laughing cow cheeses. I really only don't like seafood, tomatoes, onions or bananas. HATE bananas!!
The six things I could never do without
My computer and spell checker (I think I've forgotten how to write longhand, my writing is illegible anyway), my dog, my son, (even when he's being a teenager), my bed (love to sleep), umm..oxygen?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
you name it, I have a hard time shutting my mind off. Lots of time spent thinking about how I I doing it right or oh so wrong??
On a typical Friday night I am
sleeping, reading, out with my son, out with friends, just home hanging out or catching up on work, curling up with the dog for a good movie, any combination of the above - hard to say really.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am most definitely NOT republican even though one of my "awards" below says I am. So, so wrong.
You should message me if are close by and want a buddy. If your name somehow references any form of sex or body parts, if you call me honey, baby, etc., etc., don't expect a response either by email or IM. If you are more than ten years older than me, friendship maybe but not romance. I generally don't have a lot in common with men younger than me by about five years or so. I certainly do NOT want anymore children, so if you harbor dreams of having babies with your partner, I'm not the one for you. I'm not looking for a daddy figure in my life or a person that "needs" to be taken care of, just to make that clear.

Please have more to talk about than sex as well.
