Not to put too fine a point on it / Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet / Make a little birdhouse in your soul ~ TMBG
I am a neurotic, hopeful, sometimes-insomniac who enjoys the feelings evoked by 'Amelie', 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'WALL-E.' I am a woman who never gets tired of standing beneath the stars, and occasionally takes to the figurative and literal stage to sing full-voiced. I have always liked my smile, and know that others like it and have liked it, too, no matter what size my body has been. Right now I am closer to Big and Beautiful than Athletic, and am happier aiming for Healthy as an ongoing goal. I am in graduate school and love my program in its entirety. I have 2 tattoos, neither of which are routinely visible, one of which took 4 hours to get, and both of them are meaningful and beloved to me.
Ideally the dude of my dreams will love and enjoy me and all my foibles, will gain welcome from my friends and family, will both share my interests and goals and have his own, will smile at the thought of my wanting to take care of him and he of me, and will want to take the time to get a relationship started and keep it going. Should that dude also have a sense of style, be selective about shoes and hats, have some ink (though it's not required), read music, and appreciate an occasional icy Hendricks and tonic, then bully for me. Bad and lukewarm kissers need not apply.
