I am an outgoing person with a sunny disposition and a biting tongue. I can and do get along with almost anyone. I have been many different places and have seen and participated in many different things. I am good with animals. I am super tight with my family and friends. I always read the first 100 pages of any book i pick up, and if i don't like it, i will read the end just to know what happens. I love Tom Robbins, Jane Austen, Christopher Moore, David Sedaris, John Steinbeck, D.H. Lawrence, Mary Roach and Roald Dahl. I can recite entire movies- Young Frankenstein, Princess Bride, Pretty in Pink. Some of my favorites of all time are Streets of Fire, Afterlife, Last Temptation of Christ, the Secretary and Ghostbusters. I like most genres of music- bands I am listening to currently: rogue wave, the kinks, living legends, the decemberists, donovan- You can NEVER go wrong with YES, Modest Mouse, Tool and Mark Knopfler. I have many embarrassing guilty pleasures that i choose not to divulge just yet. I have always thought of school as a necessary evil, but have started taking some classes so that i can get my CPA, and have found that it's not all bad! I have been out of the dating scene for sometime, so I am entering it slowly and looking outside my little watering hole. I am pretty self reliant. I can fix lots of things and work random pieces of equipment- wood chipper and the jigsaw are on the top of my list. I hope to learn to weld at some point- metal work has always fascinated me. I am an avid gardener. I love my hands in the dirt and the smell of turned earth. Peonies are my most favorite flower- unfortunately the deer love them too. I love to cook- plank salmon is a specialty of mine. I can carry heavy things, but would love for someone to want to do it for me- or at least offer!
