My self-summary
Too long, but anyway...........

I may not be so easy to get to know but once you know me I’m an open book
Still have a little hippy under my punk under my (almost)grown up self ( metaphorically patchouli, love beads or sex pistols included)
I am almost always fairly cheerful, supportive and affectionate
I'm fun and adventurous
I’m a perfectionist who’s way far from perfect
I love presents, giving more than getting
I live way left of center
I love a challenge
I can be serious or extremely silly
I spend most of my time happy
I believe in firmly putting my worst foot forward and not pretending to be something I'm not
I have learned the joy that comes from bending for those you love
I can work really hard, and do, or be exceptionally lazy
I don’t believe in ever telling anyone what to do but will always share an opinion about things
I am artistic yet practical
I greatly appreciate quirkiness and kooky outfits
I really value honesty and openness
I am definitely not conservative
I'm not everyone's cup of tea, but those that love me, love me fiercely, as I do them
I’m surely out for some fun
I'm not nearly as narcissistic as all these "I's" would lead one to assume
Finally and most important.......I’m definitely a romantic and looking for the same. Someone artistic, spontaneous and maybe a little mysterious to share in some adventures and see what comes of it all.
What I’m doing with my life
Running my ( very small) Empire. I am a chef and own my own catering business. It's hugely challenging but so worth the work. I try to express my artist through my food. Spent many years traveling the planet as a private chef to the famous and powerful and one or two gods of the silver screen, Loved it but decided I really just wanted to do my own thing. Definitely looking to have more fun!
I’m really good at
Baking scones, handholding, puzzles of all kinds, listening, dubious advice after listening, smiling, finding missing objects, mocking, atmosphere.
The first things people usually notice about me
So unoriginal, I know, but smile.........give me ten more minutes and I hope my silliness and humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Ever changing pile by my bed, first few that come to mind - East of Eden, Narcissus and Goldmund, Edward Gorey's Alphabet, The Poisonwood Bible, Three Junes, The End of the Affair ( this list would be different if answered an hour from now) and always include a few trashy horror novels for fun.

Shows- I have liked Fringe, Dexter, True detective, Breaking bad, Game of thrones. Walking Dead is a guilty pleasure I watch with my 13 yr old

Movies- Love them! The Tenth victim, District 9, anything Hitchcock, Brazil, Midnight, To Kill a Mockingbird, The English Patient, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls......just a few off the top of my head. Popcorn and handholding.........I'm in!

Food- Anything I don't have to cook for myself. Ha.

Music- all over the map
The six things I could never do without
Kissing, dark humor, the pile of books by my bed, love, loyalty, my son and my friends.Probably not in that order. Yeah that's 7 but I'm not very good with rules.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the proper etiquette is for a young lady here on OKC? Should I be forward and send messages or just peek a few times to show my interest? Is it more of a compliment to make someone a favorite or give them 5 stars. Oh the drama and politics. Probably won't be doing either. It's almost too much for me. Tell you what... if I've peeked a couple of times, I probably think your cute and interesting. I think maybe now I've spent way too much time thinking about this. WTF. Oh, and just what question did I answer wrong so that OKC says I am "worse mannered"? I take pride in my please and thank you's!
On a typical Friday night I am
Always preferred Thursday night. Live in the Meat Market since the early '80's and weekends are crazy these days, so just trying to block it all out on Fridays. Much preferred the drag queen prostitutes and butchers of old to the crowds now. Otherwise, dinner with friends, hanging at my place in Woodstock, walking in the woods with flashlights, dancing out in clubland (don't do it much these days but pretty much grew up working and hanging out in the downtown NY club/music scene and still like to pop in once and a while), home with a book or movie. Just enjoying it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very apt to leap without fully considering the outcome of my actions and my enthusiasm can sometimes get the best of me.
You should message me if
Your looking for a friend who could be more.
You want to have some fun.
You actually want to meet in person.
You would like to make me laugh, make me think and you're decisive and I never again have to answer the question, "What should we have for dinner?" Fucking bane of my existence. Ha.
You don't take any of this too seriously.
You're hungry.

Also, I don't answer if no picture. Sorry, unless you're willing to share.
