I grew up in the Midwest, but always wanted to live near a beach. So I ended up in the Panhandle of Texas for three years -- go figure! But then I arrived in Mecca and now go to the beach maybe once a year. Sad! Perhaps you are interested in going to the beach? I need someone to watch for sharks! :-)
I would love to meet someone who likes local activities and going out and exploring all the great things the Bay Area has to offer. Sad to say, I've gotten away from doing as much of this as I would like, and I think meeting someone who also needs to breakaway from the grind (and projects -- ahh, the endless home projects) would get both of us on the road and sharing fun activities.
We will never know unless we give it a whirl!
I'm reasonably creative and enjoy making and buying (mostly buying of late) craft items for my house. I also enjoy spending time in my garden and keeping it in good shape.
One of my current favorite TV shows is "Big Bang Theory". Doesn't matter how many times I've seen an episode, it always makes me laugh. Would love to be on "The Amazing Race".
I read mostly non-fiction, but dip into fiction when a title comes along that intrigues me. I try to read a book at least one hour a day and feel deprived when I can't fit that in. Magazines and newspapers get attention too when time permits. So many books, so little time!
My Christmas decorations
My pets, friends, and family
Pizza, steak, ice cream and cheese (okay so maybe that is more than six things but I still can't live without them)
I suppose including this paragraph will send everyone running for the hills, but I'm doing it anyway. If you are even a little interested in communicating with or meeting me, can we please keep the games to a minimum (better yet, non-existent). With me, what you see is what you get. If you take the time to send a few lines of introduction, I will reply even if we don't seem to be a match. But saying you would like to meet after several communications, setting a tentative plan, and then disappearing is just disrespectful. After all, it is probably one hour or so out of our lives, and sometimes you learn more about people after meeting than in e-mails. And perhaps that personal meeting is just the ticket to lead to a great relationship. If not, at least we gave it a shot instead of killing it for no apparent reason.
