My self-summary
i'm all about the fun. maximum honesty with no drama. won't pick a petty fight. active & creative. lots of interests so there's no time to be bored. affectionate, cuddly & romantic. great listener. not demanding. always treat my bf's like kings. can admit when i'm wrong. owner of power tools. kind, unpretentious, down-to-earth & appreciative. not afraid to stand up for what i believe while still respecting different beliefs of others. i spend a lot time in church & have chosen a faithful Christian lifestyle all week, not just for Sunday mornings. responsible yet can still find time for spontaneous adventure. can change from hiking shorts/boots to a lacy skirt & heels in no time flat (which is, in fact, a marker of a perfect day).

(btw - the computerized personality gizmo has rated me as arrogant, not polite & not literary. i can't imagine what crazy formula they use but that couldn't be farther from the truth.) (AND... 232 people have 'liked' me. however i'm not a paying member so i can't see who they are. saying hi is effective, liking is not.) this is my no-brown-m&m's paragraph :D. in other words, if you 'like' or 'favorite' me, it shows that you haven't read my profile.
What I’m doing with my life
playing a lot of music & playing outside. so glad it's summer! need to kayak a lot more.
career transition from health care to something environmental or something else?
I’m really good at
being honest & loyal.
seeing someone else's side of things (equal to the degree of honesty they give me).
making killer brownies. ok not poison, you get my meaning.
being outside for the pure enjoyment of it.
getting hit by flashes of creativity from out of nowhere.
The first things people usually notice about me
i have more hair than height.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: true adventure e.g. tim cahill, mark jenkins, bill bryson, paul theroux, john muir, colin fletcher, the other thoreau. outside, backpacker & outdoor photographer magazines.
movies: action e.g. 'MIB', mst3k, select chick flicks, anything with harrison ford, matt damon, johnny depp or george clooney; star trek & wars, select other sci-fi.
shows: most favorite ever were 'leverage' 'madam secretary' 'sports night' 'st:tng' 'west wing' and 'heroes'. also like ncis, bbt, once upon a time & grimm; nature documentaries and DIY. guilty pleasures: dwts & amazing race (i swear, those are the only unreality-competition shows i watch. i don't talk about them after they're over. really!)
music: rock e.g. pearl jam/dmb, gospel, 80s new wave, motown, classic 70s, christian.
food: steak, mexican, italian, bbq, chinese, american. not really an adventurous eater. yes i can cook.
sports: understand them but not very interested unless the home town is kicking ass in the championship, and then only if the party is more fun than watching the game.
-however- i'm a firm believer in making my partner happy. if he wants me to go to a game w/ him, i can go & have a good time. i don't like fishing either but i can enjoy being out in a boat. in return i won't ask you to go shopping with me unless it's at REI & won't make you go to a chick flick that you don't want to see.
The six things I could never do without
tons of time spent outside
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how i wish it was spring already. when it is nice weather i'm thinking largely about how i can get outside to play very soon. i also think a lot about what God's plan is for my life & if i'm cooperating or fighting it.
On a typical Friday night I am
could be at bible study, playing music, making or fixing something, listening to local bands, eating out, at a friend's house, or planning saturday's hike/paddle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
not falling for it, sorry. :D
