In A Nutshell
Well, I like to read, mostly fiction. I like the Booker Prize winners for example. I am a beekeeper and hope to harvest some honey this weekend. I like to cook and wish I could garden, but the heat and lack of shade at my house makes that impossible. You've seem my pathetic tomato. Sigh. I am pretty funny and like to follow stand up. I live a bit out of town so am not as up on local comedy as I might be. I know it's not like "Little House on the Prairie" but still...I teach basic composition at a local community college and also work for an adult literacy organization. Education is key for me. I would like to have the opportunity to get a master's in humanities and/or library science. Librarians rock it! I have three dogs whom I love deeply. No husband, no kids. Yuck! I don't want to talk to them until they are in their teens. Those kids I get: snotty, challenging but also challenged. That's why I teach. It fills me. I grew up on the East coast so I talk and think really fast. My students say I have an accent, but I think it's they who have one. What's wrong with having cawfee with my dawgs?

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
I do a lot of crafts but in a art brut way. I don't make art for others to see but I do share the pieces I like. My artistic interests vary from stained glass to pottery to textile arts. I paint a little too.
I like word games and card games. I can be very competitive and once yelled at my niece when she used a weird, magician type word I didn't know. I once beat a student in Scrabble for a steak dinner.
I like to cook and try new foods. I do not like my food to hurt me so even though I have lived here for a long time, i don't like chile. i know, I know. But still. I like trying new foods and trying them at home too.
