My self-summary
bookish with a twist. I contra dance on average 4 nights a week. One night I slow things down a bit and do english country. I like the sultry dances as much as the fast ones. music turns me on as does intelligence. I like directness. Some people say I think too much. I'm volatile, electric, eclectic, energetic, [[sublime, surreal. moody, even, happy, sad and somewhere in between, smart, sexy, seductive, mundane, insane, spontaneous, cautious, dangerous, captivating, elevating, distracting, nervous, anxious, relaxed, alluring, revealing, witty, clever, shy, evolving. revolving. sensual. currently I'm addicted to the food netwrk and Bravo's Top Chef.

I am more fun than the 5, string banjo, and dynamically enticing
What I’m doing with my life
trying to survive. thinking, transitioning, contra dancing, learning new things everyday, trying to figure out how to be happy, listening to music, meeting new people, abstracting the absurd from the everyday. Laughing at things nobody else finds funny.
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair, my spectacles ( they are black with lime green on the top), my laugh

I spend a lot of time thinking about
twin peaks, books i'm reading or want to read or have read, music, the giant squid, random things-i can't concentrateon one thing for very long- tend to think about a lot of different things at once, which leads to a lot of segways that people either find confusing or funny- you tell me john lurie,contra dancing where all the romance has gone. Why most people don't know how to kiss anymore?
On a typical Friday night I am
going to a movie ( see above for type) or listening to live music .... , maybe contra dancing if I can find a dance, talking with friends,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get really turned on by bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music and I go to bed with Einstein every night.
You should message me if
you're into an unconventional gal who will accept you for who you are and not try to change you. If we click, we click and that's enough. sometimes you laugh at things that other people around you don't find funny- i.e. you see the humor in everyday things and can appreciate subtleness... you have a strong desire to see the world biggest ball of string and you would take a trip specifically to see it , or any other biggest, largest, or greatest. you want a cool friend to go see independent movies with and hear great music with a downhome soul. you don't go out drinking all weekend. you either know or want to know what contra dancing is you appreciate a gal who reads (a lot) you like to talk to cab drivers or think it's cool that I do. you appreciate a dry sense of humor and random segways. you get turned on by bluegrass too. you still beleive there is romance left in the world and you understand why romance is sexy. you still kiss women standing up. you know how to kiss. when you like someone you go after them without any hesitation.
