My self-summary
I would say I'm old fashioned, but because that seems to denote casual racism and sexism I will say I'm old school. I am terrible at new technology, I don't tweet or snapchat or have a blog, and I still occasionally purchase cds and dvds (or blu-rays). I think I can count on one hand the music in my collection that was released within the last five years.

My father was in the military, and we moved every few years when I was a kid, so I don't really have a "home." However, although I spent my formative years in Georgia and lived the longest in Los Angeles, I feel the strongest bond to that city down by the banks of the river Charles.

I have the uncanny ability to listen to a song a hundred times and still not know the words.

I've been told I make a face when I dance - a face that has been described as "a combination of intense concentration and fear." I don't dance a lot.

I enjoy a good, fruity mixed drink. I don't mean like a rum and coke. I mean a concoction where the liquor is drowning in the flavors of tropical fruits and islandy goodness.

When people talk to me I have a bad habit of breaking eye contact and just staring off in the distance. They often mistake this for me being disinterested or upset, when in actuality I am just thinking of what they are telling me. The one advantage of this is that if I am actually disinterested I can say, "No, I'm listening. You know about my bad habit of not making eye contact when concentrating..."

The six things I could never do without
No particular order:

1 - Air Conditioning
2 - An entertaining read
3 - Mp3 player for those long walks and workouts
4 - Basketball (watching and playing)
5 - Springsteen
6 - Comfortable shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I spend 90% of my evening jog thinking, "This is the worst. Jogging sucks," and yet I continue to jog.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm either catching up on tv or hanging out with friends or sleeping. Most likely sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I saw Saved By The Bell so many times as a teenager that now I often mistake the exploits of the Bayside crew with my own. This often leads to chuckles, except if I see a duck -- then I break down into uncontrollable sobs. RIP Becky.

Oh, and for the people who haven't Saved By The Bell (lucky you), I have been described as a "surprisingly graceful" skater (roller & ice).
You should message me if
You have a glittery sense of humor to go along with my sparkling sense of humor. You can take a joke and make a joke.
You like walking, trying new restaurants, and exploring places big and small.

You are up for a good conversation about pretty much everything --- politics, sports, tv, movies, pop culture, even how you made good time on the freeway!

You are okay with our differences. I wouldn't want to meet someone who is exactly like me --- where's the fun in that?

A partner in crime, etc.
