Though I can find common ground with just about anybody and am easily amused, most of the time I feel completely alienated from our national culture of conquer/consume, archaic notions of gender-based roles, and anything related to flags (except rainbow ones).
Recently realized I've been spending way too much time at my stressful desk job, and am trying to be better about getting out of that habit. In most ways I'm comfortable in my own skin, but I don't want to be stuck in any ruts.
I take the world seriously but have a serious need to play - and while I really am an outdoorsy lefty tomboy, I have what used to be called an "artistic sensibility." (Or sometimes a "bad attitude." But in a good way.)
Lately reading an eclectic pile of library books: novels by Africans and Persians; fairly trashy sci-fi (on camping trips); and maps/guidebooks while I plan more outings to the sierra. Still singing along with Joe Strummer, Translator and the Jezabels - I like tons of new music but don't feel loyal to it. I'm slightly too picky to call myself an omnivore but now & then I eat a dead animal.
I'm interested in meeting someone who'd like to have strings attached - not immediately, obviously, but as a concept (as opposed to someone trying to sow their NSA oats).
