Here are a few clues as to who I am… I grew up in the Santa Cruz area. I feel fortunate to live in such beautiful surroundings.
I’ve been told that I am a thoughtful, sweet, kind, loving person; that I’m very animated. I love to laugh. I definitely enjoy a good comic. Enjoy the comedy stylings of people such as Bill Maher and Sarah Silverman. I'm pretty easy going, but also willing and able to stand up for myself and people or causes that I care about.
I like to go camping, visiting botanical gardens, walking, yoga, taking a ride on the cruiser, watching a good movie. I love to cook and eat all kinds of different cuisine. I also don’t mind a tasty****tail or a good glass of red wine.
I enjoy going to concerts, the Shoreline and Mountain Winery are 2 of my favorite venues. I try not to miss the Bridge School Benefit concert put on by Neil & Peggy Young and friends annually. I love all kinds of music; old jazz such as Django Reinhardt and Cab Calloway. I love Cuban-style jazz such as Buena Vista Social Club. Billie Holiday’s jazzy blues is incredible. I love Nina Simone’s haunting voice. Leonard Cohen is another one of my favorite voices. Tom Waits...love him!!! I enjoy older country music such as Patsy Cline and Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash. Some old school punky beat such as the Dead Kennedys, Sex Pistols, Suicial Tendencies, Black Flag, The Ramones. I've been listening to Tom Waits a lot lately. I like the Talking Heads, Elvis Costello I love rockin’ out to some good ol’ rock n roll, from artists such as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, Stones, Beatles and many others…classic rock…yes, please!
Let's just say, I love music!
I enjoy growing plants; mostly ornamentals. I have many plants indoors and out.
Another passion of mine is photography. I enjoy photographing almost anything in nature. I like to photograph, flowers/plants, insects, wildlife; especially humming birds. I also like to photograph old architecture.
I don’t have any children. I love children, but I never really wanted to have any of my own. I worked as a preschool teacher for years, but eventually felt burnt out from it. It takes a lot of patients to work w young children and their families and I felt like mine were wearing a little thin. The place I worked at decided to axe their preschool program. Good timing I guess. [*UPDATE*] 11/12 I just recently started working in the medical billing field. It feels good to have a job =) Namaste ;)
Who are you??? Someone with similar likes and likes of your own of course! You’re open minded and honest, a loving person. You're sexy, and not necessarily in a drop-dead gorgeous kind of way. But there's definitely something sexy about you, be it your eyes, your smile, your attitude towards life...something ;) You’re someone who is happy w who you are, but not full of yourself. Confidence is sexy, but arrogance isn’t! You are definitely someone w a good sense of humor. You like to cook or go out to enjoy good eats. You’re friendly and social, but don’t mind staying at home watching a movie on the couch either. You’re different; you’re not your average Joe (this doesn’t exclude fellas named Joe ;) You’re artsy in some sort of way or someone who makes something. You’re someone who can express themselves and can communicate w others. You are responsible, yet fun!
Hey, numbnutz! Why are you guys flipping people off?!?!? What's with all the sunglasses and hats on here?!?! I know sunlgasses are cool n all...but I want to see some eyes! They're the window to your soul. The hats...hmmm...makes me think you're bald or balding and trying to hide it. If you're bald, let that chrome dome SHINE! Don't be scured. I want to see what you really look like. That is the whole point of posting a picture right??? So post a decent picture, PLEASE!!!
I might be a little quiet when I first meet someone new, but once I get to know you you'll see I'm a little bit crazy...not certifiable or anything like that! I'm a little offbeat and unconventional. Remember the One of These Kids is Doing Their Own Thing bit on Sesame Street, where 3 out of 4 kids are all doing the same thing and one ISN'T! That's me. I'm a little sassy, a lil spunky, pretty goofy and sometimes brutally honest (only when necessary though). I'm not trying to be mean or anything like that...I'm just a very honest person.
If you're interested in getting to know me better then send me a message. Don't be shy! I don't like to IM on here, until I get to know you better, so send me a message. Don't send me some generic message, be real.
