My self-summary
Can You Keep Up?

I’m an entertaining compilation of conflicting traits: Brazen yet shy, happy-go-lucky yet serious, energetic yet lazy, cultured yet trashy, progressive yet old fashioned, intelligent yet ditzy, strong yet fragile, graceful yet klutzy, outrageous yet conservative…… the list, it goes on!

I have lots of energy, and am looking for a partner not only in crime, but in life. While my days are filled with running a successful, growing business, my nights and (most) weekends are for enjoying life. Yes, I am working hard to be responsible about tomorrow, but I could also be dead- gather ye rosebuds and all that poetical-like stuff….. (Okay, I am almost 50- I admit there are also nights when I’m sleepin’ by 9)

I’m pretty versatile- I can hold my own at a biker rally, a grungy blues bar, the opera or dinner with a nobel prize winner. That being said, I am painfully shy- I’ve just learned to hide it really well!

While I am a pretty modern, urban-type gal (santa rosa? Long story!), I also have an old-fashioned side. I like to treat my man like a king- gourmet breakfasts, coffee in bed, etc. Makes me feel good to cater to someones likes, preferences, and so on. Of course, I expect reciprocity!

I admire talent and ability. Please be good at whatever it is that you do, and be in a position in life to be able to travel a bit, go to nice restaurants, etc without maxing out your credit cards. I don’t need to dig anyones gold, but I have no inclination to be dug, either.

Brains and a sharp wit are musts for me, as are honesty, loyalty and affection. I don’t lie- can’t- it shows on my face, so I am always taken aback when other people do. And guys- we always figure it out eventually- why bother?

I work hard and play hard- I’m usually either “on” or “off”- I don’t have much of a dimmer switch. (Not one for sitting around watching TV, although I adore naps. And while I’ll work 14 hours a day to meet a deadline, my floors always need mopping. )

I love to dance- it’s my way of staying (relatively) sane. I’m often seen shakin’ my thang at a grungy blues bar or street festival, but am also learning to swing (the dance, the dance!), salsa, zydeco, etc. A plus if you dance, but not mandatory, as long as you like going to see live music.

I enjoy just about anything- travel, reading, fine dining, camping, live music, garage sales, ANYTHING to do with water, horseback riding, snow skiing, riding on the back of a motorcycle, theater, etc. But I really love learning new things, and being introduced to something someone else loves. I must say, though, I suck at any sport involving a ball. (now don’t go there!)

While I adore a couple of martinis when I’m out dancin’, I’m not a heavy or daily drinker. No drugs either- I killed some brain cells in my youth that I think were important, so I’m hanging on to the ones I have left. I do smoke ciggies, but am very considerate. In fact, most of the relationships I’ve had have been with non-smokers. I’m thinkin’ it’s getting to be time to quit, but no promises :-)
What I’m doing with my life
building for tomorrow while trying to get the most out of today
I’m really good at
Sassy/witty/shocking retorts
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm energetic & smiling
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a voracious reader. A few faves are The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, anything by Dean Koontz or Herman Hesse. Movies: Auntie Mame, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (yeah, I hung around alot of gay men in college) Shows: Boston Legal was hysterical, though I don't really watch TV. Music: wow- love so much of it, but I'd have to go with live blues as a fav. Food: Anything unique- I am a chef and love to be impressed.
Six things I could never do without
Dancing- it keeps me (relatively) sane, Coffee (I'm a caffeine junky), salt (it's a chef thing), books (they are my tv), honesty (mine & yours), affection (public & private).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the heck to answer this question!
On a typical Friday night I am

You should message me if
You live in norcal, you are not looking for a cougar, you are smarter than the average bear, and are emotionally available for something that could develop into a relationship. Oh, yeah, and if my profile didn't make you run from your computer screaming......
The two of us
