I am a woman of many skills and talents. I am a dabbler in many things, a master of none. I value intelligence and wit. I don't have time for negativity and sarcasm - ok maybe a little sarcasm. The people I respect most in this life are the ones who tell me the truth with love, even if they are afraid it will hurt my feelings.
I value my sense of joy and delight in life. I understand how to cultivate the positive things in life. I cannot abide by people who take things too seriously. Gentleness and sensitivity and niceness are the most underrated attributes.
I am working to build my career and nurture my creativity on a daily basis. I work with preschoolers and special needs kids. I am always growing and seeking new challenges and new experiences.
I'm good at trying new things. Reading body language. Being silly. Cat wrangling. Guinea pig nail trims. Harmonizing with the ipod. Finding my way when I am lost. Listening. Fire spinning. Telling stories. A bazillion other really random, quasi-useless things.
Books: ANYTHING that is poetic prose and poignant. I was a literature major, so I am now a book snob. I also like period stories - I love learning about worlds, places, and people that I am unfamiliar with. Currently reading the Game of Thrones saga.
Food: Indian - love korma, Thai, Japanese - sushi is my friend, Middle Eastern and Mediteranean rock, also.
Music: Imogen Heap and Bjork and the Indigo Girls are where it's at for me right now musically. And I am a recent, huge, and instant fan of Freelance Whales! Also enjoy The Weepies, Ingrid Michelson, Sufjan Stephens, Yulduz Usmanova, Joanna Newsom, Jem (ha! the cartoon when I was wee and the british songstress now), and many others.
Movies: The Dark Crystal, Serenity, Run Lola Run, Amelie, O Brother Where Art Thou, Hudsucker Proxy, The Fall, the Fifth Element, Mrs. Brown, Winter's Bone, the list goes on.
TV: Defiance, Firefly, Rome, Deadwood, Carnival, Star Trek: DS9, Alien Nation, Downton Abbey, nature documentaries narrated by Attenborough! Any documentary, really.
