At work today, I pureed old paper in a blender with fifth graders-- really. Would you like a boost of vitamin K with your blended paper? I don't work at a smoothie shop but I am a sucker for free boosters.
Whew! Made it to paragraph 2! And past the picture size-up....I'm already flattered.
Let's see. On any given day, I crave at least one of the following (there's a logic to the sequence but we can discuss that another time):
HOT weather, avocados, the smell of fresh jasmine flowers, raw almonds, a 4 mile run, NPR, cardommom, rooibos, long showers, talking in another language, 10 minute pigeon pose, fruit pie, derby pie, pumpkin pie, strawberry rhubarb pie, meandering on my bike, a margarita, a hot bachata song, SUN, Fresh Air with T.G, Garba, bhangra, and yogurt.
I'm a curious gal with varied interests and passions. I absolutely love what I do for work -- I teach environmental education -- it's a privilege. I can talk about it for hours. I like talking about NPR and the world, but get bored talking about poetry and chakras.....
And, yes, I'm Indian but I really don't know what they chant about at the beginning of yoga class. I'm usually thinking of anything previously mentioned from the list above.
So music...I dig it. I wish I were a rock star but I won't quit my day job -- I like my day job! And I don't want to date a rock star. Although I do love belting out songs. I like music that's nostalgic and/or danceable. Please no electronica. Yuck. Bring on the Dixie Chicks.
And I dig dancing, more than anything. I love to dance salsa and bachata as well as bhangra and Bollywood. As well as Micheal Jackson and Tone Loc. And Baby Got Back. But you don't have to love dancing as long as you'd consider dancing with me.....
I may seem spastic, which is not inaccurate. It is hilarious to be in my presence, or at least I think so. I crack myself up constantly and I love making a guy laugh.
Please DO get in touch with me if you are kind and generous, if you like to hold hands, if you are not too cynical to reduce, reuse, recycle; if you like to fix things and use your hands (for lots of reasons ;), if you'd be okay back-packing with a slow poke, if you are curious about the world, other people, other cultures (but not a know it all), if you appreciate old people, and people under the age of 13.
