I have been through hell & back but somehow emerged with a smile on my face & lots of love in my heart. I am friends with all of my ex's (best friends with one of them)..so I guess that is a little peek into how I view the value of people. I am constantly trying to improve myself (for myself). I consider myself to be a writer, photographer, part time voluptuous pin-up girl, Advice- columnist, environmentalist, farmer & world class chef but I make a living working in an office moving piles of paper around my desk. I love being outdoors. The ocean & sunsets are my happy place. I suppose I will add more later, but for now, there are puddles to jump in....
I am living off-grid growing hops. I feel like I should mention this as not everybody likes the idea of always being covered in a fine layer of red dust, being surrounded by wild beasties (bobcats & coyotes for the most part) and constantly flicking pincherbugs, ants or ticks off their legs. The sunsets and starry skies are totally worth the aforementioned pests, and the ability to brew with your own hops is pretty rad too.
Now for honesty's sake...here are my less redeeming qualities:
I have been told I have no respect for time..(but I figure time has no respect for me..so we are even). I am easily distracted, I forget all kinds of things (keys, wallet, where I parked my car). I am a bit of a scatterbrain. I crush hard & very easily. I trust too much & too often (I don't think that is necessarily bad). I drive way too fast and it has been said I am entirely too vocal about my opinions...I over-use ellipses & my car is always messy.
I have a deep affection for live theater & opera. If your idea of a perfect night out is at the Met in NYC, we have a lot to chat about.
I also listen to an ungodly amount of NPR (love Prairie Home Companion!).
I don't watch much TV (who has the time?), but sometimes I get to watch Walking Dead. I like old TV shows I can watch on Netflix..Dr. Who, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daises.
Movies? Classics like Casablanca, the original Willy Wonka. Love Tarantino, Terry Gilliam & Michelle Gondry movies, so basically anything a little off-kilter, dark comedy or mind bending. Harold & Maude is my all time favorite.
I love all types of food. I cook quite a bit & am always trying my hand at something new. Love Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, Afghan, Italian..& I am a freaking grill master. I have been vegetarian & vegan before so if meat isn't your thing..that is fine by me.
