I am an individual who enjoys laughter and witty banter. I am the youngest of 5 (technically i am the youngest of 3 sisters, 4 brothers and 2 step brothers, or should I say I am a survivor of?) and was raised in the country with horses and cows and flies.... but also with a sense of humor that has an "edge" to it, for lack of a better word. I am a deep feeler, but only those closest to me know how compassionate and empathetic I am. I believe in a little bit of everything and a smidge of nothing. I express myself often and don't care for guarding my tongue and can sometimes say the wackiest things, but some of the best conversations I've ever had have started just that way.
I have the ability to have fun and make friends wherever I am and usually enjoy being alone, talking out loud and pondering things like, who came up with the 5 day work week and can we fire him? How would you make a sarcastic font? Will the world ever finally stop being able to make new music or chords or sounds? That thought is very upsetting to me. What if there was no new music? And usually one thought leads to another and I go to sleep feeling as though I have solved the worlds problems with philosophy (at least my own world) and it is a better place. I'm intelligent, quick and can get saddened if no one is on the same page with me; however every now and then I meet someone who is absolutely on the same page and I feel as though I was given a gift and I try to enjoy every minute of it.
I believe in angles and I think that when God said there was only one God, he didn't mean one religion. I think that he is smart and crafty enough to give all of us something to believe in, whether it is Catholicism, Buddhism (this crap is hard to spell), Wiccan, Allah or whatever makes you feel connected and gives you hope. That is what matters most in my (Darla's) opinion.
I enjoy playing pool (though am not very good at it) and enjoy watching and going to football games. My favorites are the Bronco's (though not nearly as fun to watch without Shannon, Eddie and John), but I also like the Saints and the Cowboys. Don't ask my reason because I will not be able to give you one that will make sense to you. :) I enjoy going to small pub's, I am after all, Irish and Scottish (Murphy!) Not that there are that many people with my name on Facebook; however unless it Dublin Calling. :)??
I am very trusting, or used to be. I still find that I take people at their word and am learning that actions speak louder and that many people do not say what they mean. I can't seem to help it. I was raised in the country and had no idea... I was taught not to lie, steal or cheat and I'm pretty sure I was the ONLY kid who took that seriously. Damn. If someone asks me my opinion, I often ask if they mean it. Cuz it's a comin' and I don't sugar coat it. I'm a person who actually likes someones flaws. I had a friend who was just rude and gruff. Poor thing couldn't help it, and I loved it, because it was not faked, implied, or stammered over. I like people when they are who they are, warts and all.
I enjoy philosophy and have been told many times I have a gift to be able to understand others and I think it's true. It doesn't always feel like a gift, especially when I am mad and hurt and don't want to understand. But it does make for a very level headed logical partner. :)
I have had my heart broken, sewn up, shattered and (feels like) replaced. I believe that I have learned and changed so as to be able to create the relationship I have always wanted (and yes it's sappy); however I am rarely asked out on dates or even approached for that matter. And I am tired of waiting. So here I am, doing something that makes me feel strange and a bit awkward, but there are worse things in this world. Like liver and onions and bad whiskey
