My self-summary
I am a highly educated, self-sufficient elitist snob, divorced with two grown daughters, looking for an intellectual sparring partner with an occasional time-out in le sack.
What I’m doing with my life
looking for world peace free from suffocating religious intolerance and also seeking the mystery of life...yawn...
I’m really good at
put-downs, debating and profiling...I do not suffer fools lightly. I am an elitist and am guilty of intellectual snobbery - and offer no excuses or apologies...my standards cull the mediocre from the masses...
The first things people usually notice about me
my wryly dry wit; confidence; snarky attitude if I've been played - and blonde hair...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books to include "To Kill a Mockingbird," John Hersey's "Hiroshima," Nevil Shute's "On the Beach," Joseph Persico's "Roosevelt's Secret War," and anything written by Jon Meacham, Walter Isaacson, and Stephen Ambrose; Cary Grant movies; anything on PBS - with Brit mysteries topping the list; The Carpenters, the 4Bs (Bach, Beatles, Brahms, and Beethoven), Mozart, Broadway show tunes; fresh lox slathered in capers and non-Fukushima-contaminated sushi...yawn...
The six things I could never do without
1. a Steinway piano
2. black nail polish
3. tweezers
4. bubble gum-flavored lip gloss
5. a dictionary
6. a compass
I spend a lot of time thinking about
inequality and unfairness...AND why I'm so fortunate...
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking wine and changing channels between CSpan and PBS. In the event of channel-switching over-load, I become a slave to sites like this...ad nauseum...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a former Marine officer who gave up a promising career teaching high school history/social studies when I insanely voluntarily enlisted to take advantage of the USMC's THEN-tacit policy of not separating married officers (AND women were not deployed to combat zones and were discharged if found to be pregnant...yawn) - a move that kept my now ex-husband (a draftee and also a promising history/social studies high school teacher) from being deployed to Vietnam and having his ass shot off...yawn...While hurriedly answering this question last night - I was drinking champagne. One of my proudest political moves is voting for Jimmy Carter - AND, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are international war criminals.
