PROUD GRADUATE OF NORTH HIGH SCHOOL ... AND PROUD TO SAY I PLAYED A VERY ACTIVE PART IN GETTING THE POLAR BEARS BACK TO THE COLUMBUS ZOO.
GO --- POLAR --- BEARS!!!!
By the way ... The Columbus Zoo is now home to two (sister) female polar bears. The Arctic Frontier is now open (as of May 6, 2010).
UPDATE ... we now have a male polar bear in with the girls ... and hopefully they will have some young bears in the near future!
I am not religious and I am a registered Democrat. If you are religious and conservative in your politics, we probably would never be a good match. I say that only because I have wasted way too much time with men who try to religiously convert me and want to show me the "right way" politically. When I find a gentleman who makes my socks go up and down ... I really don't want to waste my time arguing about things like religion and politics. I'd rather spend my time making your socks go up and down. I know you will understand. Okay ... we got that out of the way and now we can talk about what gives my life meaning.
One of my hobbies is singing ... in fact it's one of my favorite things to do, but I also enjoy dancing. I have been a Western Style Square Dancer for about 45 years (okay, I was not quite 20 years old when I started dancing) and also do cued ballroom dancing. My singing involves rehearsing and performing with the Germania Club (local German club in the heart of the Brewery District at 543 S. Front Street, Columbus, Ohio). I am the president of the lady's chorus and also hold the office of "Financial Secretary" for the club ... both are board positions. When I get the time and feel up to it, Karaoke is a nice activity for me as well ... because I'm good at it and people like it when I sing for them.
While"Germania" is a private club, we are often open to the public. Oktoberfest is one example of that and is quite an event (held in September). Examples of other times the club opens to the public is for 3 Sommerfests (in 2015 they are on 6/12, 7/24, & 8/21) as well as open to the public for Red, White, & Boom which is also our annual Bratwurst Festival. We are a volunteer club so I will be working at all those events. We have a lot of fun there so come join us.
I have a mountain bike that I enjoy riding ... and my first outing is scheduled in May. I'll also be helping out with the TOSRV bike tour on Mother's Day this year ... no matter, my daughter and grandson will be with me ... so I've got my Mother's Day covered!
I'm a Grandma. "OMA" ("Grandma" in German) is what he calls me. I have an open invitation to pick him up as often as I want and while I can't do it all that often, I do enjoy taking him to the Zoo and we also like to go swimming at the water park connected to the Zoo. He's no baby, in fact he's taller than I am now. In summer, a trip to the Zoo always includes time at the water park with "Oma" going down the tubes, slides and then playing in the "Lazy River" and the "Wave Pool". (I guess I'm kinda active for my age ... sigh.)
The terminology of dating websites :
"Intimate Encounter," ... of course, means you're looking for wild, no-holds-barred monkey sex.
"Activity Partner" ... means especially energetic sex, usually after intense physical workouts.
"Hang Out" ... means sex, followed by dinner and/or a movie.
"Dating" ... means the man pays for the after-sex dinner and/or movie.
"Talk/Email" ... means online or phone sex preceding actual sex.
"Other" ... usually means some kind of kinky sex.
"Long Term" ... means having sex on a routine basis, with or without dinner and/or movie.
"Friends" ... means he's probably gay.
(I hope this helps clear up any confusion.)
This just in ... borrowed from another poster with her permission!
**Must not think smoking dope doesn't count as 'drugs'
**Must not send introductory email subject line: "Ya wanna?"
**Must not laugh out loud when I sing along to the radio.
Will try to think of more and add them.
Just got this from my daughter ...
I will not be any man's ... "half"-time ... "down"-time ... "spare"-time ... or "sometimes". If that's what you want ...don't waste my time.
Another gem from family ... I'm told they got it from Rumi
For those who cherish intimacy and truth!!
Stay together, friends.
Don't scatter and sleep.
Our friendship is made of being awake.
Play this game because you love and the playing is love.
