I love animals, all animals except crunchy bugs. I have just about the best job in the world, even when it is really difficult I love it. I get to meet new people and learn something new every day. The hours just arent very good for meeting people. I love the ocean, there's something about it that makes you just feel calm and content. I'd like to learn how to surf. I grew up in the mountains. I love to go fishing (but someone else has to eat the fish usually) and camping. I'm not afraid to get dirty. I'm pretty self-sufficient, I can even kill my own spiders (but I don't like to...the crunch factor...shudder). I just bought my first home. I have a rescue cat with crossed eyes and a bent ear. And 2 dogs... my boys! Both are lab mixes and pretty big babies. Even though 1 is almost 9 and the other has eaten all my shoes and not a small amount of furniture in his short year of life. What can I say? Animals make me smile and crack me up every day. I love music...pretty much all music, even country and some rap and opera. Mostly a rock fan though. I like good wine (and cheap beer when its hot out). I'm honest...I'd rather be honest and risk hurting feelings than lie, but I try to be as kind as I can, and I know sometimes it's just better to keep your mouth shut. I love to laugh and joke around. I can be a goof, so I'm laughing at myself a lot. But know when it's time to be serious. I'd like to meet someone with a sense of humor. Someone who is respectful-and I mean to someone you bump into on the street or a waiter, not just someone in a professional situation. And someone who doesn't take himself too seriously.
