My self-summary
If you are not, skip me and move on to someone else. But if you are, talk Bernie to me, baby!

I am not interested in kayaking. I enjoy quilting with out a pattern or much of a plan. I make a mean meatloaf. I have zero tolerance for zero tolerance, and am generally anti-anti-bacterial. I own a lot of birkenstocks, and still have my first set of docs, plus a few more. Sometimes, if the mood takes me, I invite people over for a noodle dinner. I always sing along. I see the glass as already broken. I abuse the comma, and have a great fondness for the semi-colon; it is a handy bit of punctuation often over-looked. I appreciate people who actually take the time to compose a missive that consists of more than platitudes dashed off without really reading my profile. Respect has to be earned, but courtesy is always required. Compassion is more important than just about anything else. I sometimes feel like I am taking the longest route possible on my road to zen, but have certainly seen a whole lot of shit along the way. Ponder that. Glitter is my friend.

I really don't have a set agenda here beyond meeting new people and making friends, and taking things from there. I like things to happen organically, to let a relationship develop into what it should be, and not limit myself by setting up some idea of what I want it to be before I even know a person. But I do believe in True Love, and am a bit of a hopeless romantic. That said, I'm also open to just about anything, so don't be shy...

And above all else-- I love to travel. So please, Gentlemen from Far Off--send me a note, and tell me why your city/region/country is great. You never know, perhaps I'll come visit sometime...
What I’m doing with my life
I'm going crazy, wanna come?
I’m really good at
nothing. There are any number of things I'm pretty good at, and even more things that I am half-way decent at, and quite honestly, a ton of shit that I suck at. Although, re-reading my profile, it appears I'm really good at ending sentences with a preposition.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short, I'm blonde, I have a nice smile and a very respectable rack. But if you look past that, you'll see a lot more... ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Little Prince, The Fountainhead, The Alchemist, The Lorax, HP 1-7, LOTR, A Picture of Dorian Grey, Nancy Drew (original blue covered), Fly Boys, Catch 22, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, In the Suicide Mountains, Illusions, A Tale of Two Cities, trashy romance novels (but NOT Fifty Shades of Shitty Writing), the dictionary.......

Movies: Hamlet (Tennant/Stewart), Sound of Music, Trainspotting, Gandhi, Bent, Arn, Iron Man etc., WWII documentaries, Auntie Mame, The Princess Bride, LOTR, Star Trek (original and next), Office Space, Velvet Goldmine, The Red Violin, Amadeus, Snatch, American Pyscho, anything by Tarantino, Dean Spanley, Henry V (both Olivier and Brannagh), Stranger than Fiction, slow British movies with long pauses, Star Wars IV-VI, Luther, Newsies. Yeah, that's right, Newsies, worst film ever, but I'm not afraid to put it on my list.

Television: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Murder She Wrote, Rosemary and Thyme, Star Trek, X-Files, Lie to Me, Midsomer Murders, Wire in the Blood, The West Wing, Animaniacs, Bones, Red Dwarf, History and Smithsonian Channel anything, Foyle's War. I love Netflix; there's nothing better than watching old shows and getting to see things like Orlando Bloom murdered with a pitchfork or Joaquin Phoenix trapped in a toy factory with a murderer on the loose.

Music: 80s new wave/synth pop, punk rock, anything you can dance too, stuff that's funny at kareoke, 70s singer/song writers, disco, funk, folk, industrial, moody music for those with crushing ennui, world tunes... Most things really, although I hate new age saxophone jazz with the burning intensity of a thousand white hot suns.

Food: Almost anything, although I tend to draw the line at offal. I'm just as happy eating hash browns and drinking coffee in a diner, or getting burritos from a truck parked out front the Grand Auto as I am going to a Classy Restaurant for Fancy Foods. And yes, I know how to dress and what kind of manners are required for both those scenarios.
Six things I could never do without
Quality Conversations
My Fountain Pen(s)
Blank Paper

shit, I suppose I should have Ink, too, or I won't get very far, now will I? So there's Seven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Pretty much anything and everything you can think about. There's still a lot of things I haven't gotten to yet, so I'm not stopping now. Sadly, many people do stop thinking when they hit a certain age, and it's such a shame, as there is so much to ponder....
On a typical Friday night I am
I have my kids with me 4 days a week, so most Friday nights my plans usually involve watching cartoons and/or discussing the Age of Dinosaurs or the formation of the Universe. On the few occasions they are at their dad's house on a Friday, I like to drink working-class tea while reading and/or writing, listen to music really loud, often while drinking good single malt scotch and dancing like an idiot. I also watch a lot of British crime dramas on the netflix, and lately have gotten into Swedish films as well. When I'm feeling the need to leave the house, I admit it: I like to go to dive bars and sing kareoke. But that's usually on Saturday nights...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, I already copped to liking Newsies, and Karaoke, so I think
I've already got this one covered.
You should message me if
You have a quick wit and wry sense of humor, if you're someone who can laugh at himself and at me and things that aren't always funny. Someone truly open minded and accepting, who can understand that yes, it is possible to be emo and wear lime green, and be punk and like ABBA. Some one with thoughtful eyes, who is not afraid to cry, but not one who lets darkness reign so completely that there is no room for light. Self-Awareness is sexy, good sex is necessary and distance is not an issue that can't be overcome if true connections are made.

You understand the message format here is that of e-mail, rather than text. This means there is no limit on how many characters you can type, so you can actually spell words out in their entirety. I don't expect a lengthy missive, but if you can't be bothered think of more than a one sentence, cliche salutation as an introduction, you can assume that I won't be bothered to message you back.

You like the rain.
The two of us
