I'm a city gal who fell in love with the desert. I am quick witted (sometimes even witty), easy-going, and easily amused. I love my work and when I'm not at the office, there’s glue, dough, or paint under my fingernails. You probably know already that I love to write.
Despite the cliché: the only thing missing from my life is a lover who's as bright, creative, sensual, loving and loyal as I am. Ugh, I just made myself sound like some bizarre cross between a Boy Scout and a puppy, didnt I? Well, I promise not to chew on your favorite slippets. Honest!
I love to cook and bake. Making my loved ones a luxurious meal is one of my favorite ways of showing affection. Speaking of affection, I hope you like cats. I used to volunteer at an animal shelter; now I serve 3.5 cats.
Two years ago, I learned that loving again was possible. Now I want to live it with a compatible man. Someone who's ready, willing and able to take the time to build an intimate partnership together. Life and love are works in progress; enjoying the journey is more important than reaching some static goal, pre-determined by society. The heck with that! Let's build our own happy ending.
entertaining toddlers (possibly because we share the same mindset)
telling politically incorrect jokes to politically correct people
bringing people together
pointing out the humor
random acts of affection
Funny movies, exploding movies, cult movies, offbeat yet poignant movies, movies with subtitles. Currently fascinated with Wilfred and Game of Thrones.
I'm not big on chic lit or most bestsellers. But I adore science fiction, fantasy, history, natural history. Some faves: Edward Abbey, Terry Pratchett, Daniel O'Malley, Jane Austen, Neil Gaiman, Natalie Goldberg, Richard Kadrey, Stephen Levine, George RR Martin, Terry Pratchett, Carl Hiaason, Ellis Peters, Terry Pratchett, Mary Renault, Vernor Vinge, Kurt Vonnegut. Did I mention Terry Pratchett?
I lean towards jazz standards, world music, blues...smoky sounds you can listen to by candlelight at 2 in the morning with a glass of single malt Scotch while running my fingers through my guy's hair.
I'll try anything once, maybe twice - just to make sure. Come to think of it, that's pretty much the way I approach most new experiences. Local over chain, always. Even before it became popular. As an ex-New Yorker, I am genetically obliged to love Chinese food. Even Phoenix Chinese food.
