My name is Roxy, and I'm a Cuban girl born in Hialeah, FL (which means I was raised surrounded by Cubans as if I still lived there. Even though it's the USA). I love to travel. I've taught in Japan. I'm easygoing, a little shy, and enjoy good conversation and good humor. I'm a little strange: I like feet (I think they're cute), I like snakes and cats and big fluffy dogs, I like jazz and blues and rock (mostly old school stuff), I love musicals and old movies. I like movies; black and white and 3D and everything in between. I dance to musicals and Eartha Kitt. I own anime and watch it. I love Japanese gardens and looking at scenic views. I sing along in the car, loudly. I like to go to karaoke and shoot pool and I'm bad at both. I like good wines, good beers and good shots. I smoke cloves. I love to dance and don't do it too well, but I don't care. I love big skirts that spin, and really, really windy days with sunshine. I hiccup a lot and laugh out loud. I cry when I'm moved. I love the Atlantic Ocean and the beach. I love water and mountains and forests. I enjoy food and walking. I love small towns with personality and old houses. I love sunflowers.
My hobbies include writing, reading, playing video games, watching movies, collecting books and cooking. I also love the outdoors, so boating, hiking, traveling... I love doing stuff, so I'll pretty much be game for anything. I'm a nerd and a movie quoter. Top 5 films I watch most often: The Princess Bride, Ladyhawke, Labyrinth, Amelie, and Stranger than Fiction. TV Shows I currently watch and love: Castle, Burn Notice, White Collar, Leverage. I play Magic the Gathering and D&D. I read s.f. and fantasy.
My goals are to get published and perhaps, if luck would have it, work in the publishing business myself. I have a couple of books that I'm working on and some short stories I'm sending out. Here's hoping.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Wherever we go to chat and get to know one another is great for me. Walking, sitting in park or in a bar or lounge--doesn't matter. I like trying new things and going to new places, but I'm also curious about the other person's favorite places to go and things to do. I have a good sense of humor so if you can make me laugh, bonus points.
