what I've posted there
I walk two french bulldogs 3 or 4 times a day. I swim alot. I'm pursuing an 'athletic' body type. I love to read. I'm looking for someone both smart and happy -a good head on your shoulders with a positive attitude- to enjoy life with. I love music. All of it.
I have two projects I'm working on: 1)a booklist ('1001 books you must read before you die') and 2) my blog (a fun hobby). I have a disability, the upside of which is I don't have to work.
A quote I like is "I have always thought heaven to be a kind of library." I'm omnivorous: I read everything. If only there were time for it all (I should learn to speedread, eh?). Wouldn't it be cool if you could freeze time, and teleport, and time travel, and be immortal? I would totally read everything (and listen to all the music, too).
ANyway, I was an International Relations major at UCD (Third World studies emphasis, minor in spanish). I've been to China, and would love to travel more. Mostly, I love nature. I spent many childhood summers in the redwoods by the russian river. I haven't been hiking or camping in awhile, and would like to resume.
Among the things I like are documentaries, animation, nature shows, taiko drums, cirque du soleil, and of course good food. I bicycle everywhere. I grew up in San Francisco. I'm a Boar (which they say is most compatible with sheep or rabbits), but hopefully not boring.
What I'm Doing With My Life
Exercise (swimming, walking, bicycling), reading (I'm currently into Buddhism, short stories, and the hunger games), staying informed (I read the NYTimes daily, and try to read the Economist and Christian Science Monitor weeklies). Musically, I like college radio alot, like harvard's whrb, cal's kalx, or gdradio.net (the grateful dead).
let me know what you think of my blog?
Reading. And reading some more. Did I mention I like to read? Yup, reading.
I hope to live til I'm at least 120. That gives me another 80 years. Oh, yeah!
I'm Really Good At
I tested 140 iq once. I won a journalism award in high school. I got a scholarship to Cal. Staying busy. I'm told I'm the kind of personality that keeps on goin', no matter what trials and tribulations life throws at me. I was voted Most Kind in grammar school, back in '85, lol. Maybe writing. I like to write.
The First Things People Usually Notice About Me
My aura? I'm not sure to be honest. I have blue eyes. Probably the dogs. They're a lot of fun. But they get screamy whenever they see a cat, a squirrel, another dog...
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, Shows, and Food
-Douglas Adams, Isabel Allende, Dostoevsky, Jonathan Franzen, Gabriel Garcia Marques, Anne Rice, Kurt Vonnegut, Mark Twain. Tent of Miracles (Jorge Amado). The Lost Steps. The Sand County Almanac.-Fantastic Planet, Grave of the Fireflies.-I don't watch much tv. When I had cable (once upon a time), I enjoyed comedy, mostly (Daily Show, Dr. Katz, standup). I really miss Beevis and Butthead, heh heh.-I like to listen to music while I'm on the computer.-Thai, sushi, chinese, mexican... I like spicy.And sweets, a bit too much, probably: i.e. kerns, swedish fish, riesen, it's its, ben n jerrys, horchata, baklava, see's, mrs. field's...But I'm becoming more fit, lately, and therefore eat less sugar
The Six Things I Could Never Do Without
1)basic needs (food, shelter, clothing, clean water, sanitation)
2)others, people, pets, friends, family, community
3)happiness, humor, smiles, laughter, joy, bliss, fun
4)stimulus (i.e. books, magazines, music, movies, the internet, the library, my blog)...reading and writing.
5) Love (God? Truth? Reality?), or Liberty. Either one.
6)as David Bowie sings, love is not loving. So loving, too. Which is another way of saying Sex, which maybe I should call Intimacy.
Actually, on second thought, I should replace loving with life and health and strength. I can live without sex.
Of course, the Buddhists say these are cravings or 'attachments', so maybe I should just stick to life and health, if even that.
I Spend A Lot Of Time Thinking About

I'll tell you if you meet me in person.

Virgos are said to be most compatible with Pisces, Taurus, or Capricorn. (or another Virgo)
