My self-summary
(Updated 04/15/17)
I'm a what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of person, probably more honest than is really all that good to be. I have been known to carry on conversations with strangers in WalMart or wherever I may be. I can be talkative, especially if I'm enjoying myself. I would say I'm a mix of serious and silly. Right now every other weekends with family. I get dvds from Netflix. I have straight talk. Been playing Hobbit and War & Order... though not sure for how much longer.

I am fond of reading fantasy/sci-fi and paranormal romances (romantic fantasy/sci-fi). I'm rarely on Facebook right now.

I can't really see myself with the hardcore hunter. I'm a softy about animals, though I will eat catfish and rabbit. Deer heads on a wall really aren't me. I find it interesting to talk to "computer geeks" and artistic people since I have some interests in both those areas. I used to draw a bit, did a little theatre, etc. I don't take the time to do much of that anymore, but it is certainly a part of who I am.

I quit smoking 14 years ago, so I don't really want someone who smokes. Plus, smoke seems to give me a headache now. As for drinking, I may sometimes go a whole year or longer without touching any alcohol, so I'd say I'm looking for someone who doesn't drink alot either. I am almost 45 with a graduating daughter. I haven't completely given up on another child but I am running out of time for it to happen. It is not certain to be possible at my age.

I'm the daughter of a farmer and a teacher from Obion County. I live in Dyer County. I have a background in the arts, art and theatre mainly, and an interest in fantasy/sci-fi books or movies. I have 5 cats (3 of which I managed to bottle feed when their mom disappeared, probably a coyote).
What I’m doing with my life
Working... I play games on my phone (Hobbit and War & Order), read books, watch movies with my daughter, take pictures of family... I would like to spend time talking with a friend or dating someone... something different from the same-old, same-old.
I’m really good at
Well, I haven't done it in a while, but I can draw faces fairly well... get a good likeness. But I draw what I see.... people don't magically get better hair. :)

I'm good at being myself. Most people are good at being who they think people want them to be. I try to be considerate of others, but I'm not going to change who I am to become cooler. And I dislike dealing with liars and cheaters, etc. Lots of people try very hard to be someone else or hide who they are or what they are doing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Some people ask if my hair is naturally curly... it is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Musically, I'm fairly eclectic. I listen to rock (especially Alternative) and country depending on my mood; I've "grown into" country. I also have occassionally listened to Air One. I like Green Day, Linkin Park, Bob Dylan, western Marty Robbins, The Pogues, Michelle Shocked, Indigo Girls, Bonnie Raitt, Sarah Mclachan, They Might Be Giants (Flood album)and classic Christmas music (Bing Crosby, etc.). I even have some latino music and other odds 'n ends.
I love Robin Williams' comedy. On TV (some of these are off-air now), I like CSI (Las Vegas), NCIS, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, Supernatural, Lie to Me, House, Sanctuary, Vampire Diaries, Warehouse 13, Sherlock (with Lucy Liu), Lost Girls, etc. I basically like stuff that makes you think or is artistic or sci-fi/fantasy based in some way. I also don't spend money on a satellite dish; one of these days I'll get to where I can afford it.
I read alot of different fantasy writers.... Ed Greenwood, Piers Anthony, Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, Elaine Cunningham, Mercedes Lackey, etc. etc....
Six things I could never do without
My child, my cats, my family, a good book, a good movie, some kind of games... electronic games, card games, word games...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, I can be a daydreamer... though that has yet to make a fairytale life appear. I can also be a worrier, though I try not to be. Reading a book, fiddling on a computer or my phone (have internet on there now), or watching a movie tend to help me put things out of my mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home with my daughter watching a movie. I generally watch action, sci-fi/fantasy, and comedy. I have The Day After Tomorrow, Hidalgo, Lord of the Rings, Twilight, Jurassic Park, The Mummy, Underworld, Resident Evil, Reddick series of movies, Star Wars and some more fantasy/sci-fi stuff at home. We also watch some more unusual stuff like the original Yours, Mine, and Ours with Lucille Ball or I Remember Mama (VHS) with Irene Dunn in black and white. Let it never be said that anything about me is cookie-cutter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really get this one.... why would one tell the whole world something private unless this is simply to tantalize? Some little tidbit one says to be funny or sexy... I have yet to see an entry on this one that made me want to write the guy.
You should message me if
If you're really interested in getting to know me... something you read tweaks your interest. I don't mind just hanging out as friends some time... But the guys who send the emails saying how "hot" my picture is should really just move on to the next girl. Those type of entries generally tell me that they are either want sex or money (Nigerian fraud).
