My self-summary
While I appreciate that this part is important, it always feels so awkward to sum oneself up in a few concise sentences. I can say that I am pretty laid back in general and like to meet new people. I have been accused of bringing home strays amongst my friends- which is a good thing as it has in general added new personalities into the mix that livens it up for everyone. I rarely meet someone I don't like and learn from almost everyone. I think that one can never learn too much and that you get the most out of life by having experiences rather than from owning stuff. I have spent a good deal of my younger years traveling and appreciate the differences that cultural influences bring to any situation.

I love costumes and any event that inspires a person to be creative to express their individuality. The Ren Faire is a great place to take children to let them see that even when you grow up you can let your imagination run free. I dress up frequently and go to every event I can that requires costumes. Eccentric Day, Theatre Bizarre and Talk Like a Pirate Day should be national holidays.

I am witty, quirky, and sarcastic.
What I’m doing with my life
Discovering. Learning. Saving dogs and cats through my love of surgery. Hopefully traveling more and meeting other like minded people to share the joys of this world with.
I’m really good at
Laughing. I don't take life too serious and look for others that are the same. That being said, it is important to be serious when necessary and get those things done that one has to. But that is only so one can get back to having fun with the people you care about.
The first things people usually notice about me
. . . my long hair. I grew it out in Africa and won't ever go through the mid length hair stage again so it stays until I'm ready for short hair. Which could be a while. . .
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Geek Love was a recent great, as was The Mystic Art of Erasing All Signs of Death. The Ethical Slut is on the list of need to read. I don't have real favorites as it is mood dependent.

Princess Bride would have to qualify as favorite movie if number of times viewing counts as some sort of voting, though Fear and Loathing would tie or come in second.

I couldn't limit myself to a favorite food as there is almost nothing I don't like.
Six things I could never do without
Beer, coffee, love, animals, Tanzania and people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The way the world has changed. I remember when people seemed to care about one another and not the pursuit of stuff. I used to live in Tanzania and the thing that attracted me to the place was the fact that people were happy despite having little of what most would call "important". The swahili greeting of Habari is always answered, "Mzuri"- fine. If you ever were told, "Siyo mbaya"- not bad, you would panic as that often meant that the house was lost to a fire, the children were dead, all the cows were stolen and you had malaria. Little problems like being late for a movie never ruined anyone's day in Tanzania. Health, family and friends were recognized as the important things to pay attention to and to nourish.
On a typical Friday night I am
Curled up with a book or movie or out to the bar for cocktails and fun with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cover up my shy personality by being outgoing and flamboyent. Insecurities exist in all of us, some just hide it better.
You should message me if
You would like to teach me something new about the world.
The two of us
