I prefer to converse with someone who knows what the word means. No, its not a shoe. I'm intellectual, caring, inquisitive - and don't enjoy feeling smarter than someone else. Hence the first statement. I enjoy hiking, fishing, camping and other outdoor activities. I am a bit of a foodie - and a pretty good cook. I would call cooking a hobby. I sew, read, and study interesting subjects. I am open minded and liberal. Music - everything, anything that makes me feel - except lame Country and lame Pop, oh and whiny Metal. Lately - Adele, Florence and the Machine, Kings of Leon, Killers. I love classics like Bowie, the Doors, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, some heavy stuff. I have a Tori Amos collection; Sarah McLauchlan, Poe, Tool, some Bluegrass and others make up my Pandora. A tip for you - I'm outnumbered here. Take the time to think of something more than "Hi" to say.

Hhmmm... drinks, coffee, hike, walk.
