ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

In college a friend once described me as "the ultimate hedonist". Now that I am firmly ensconced in adulthood, I've dialed it back somewhat (okay, a lot), but still enjoy the pleasures of "the good life". Eating delicious food, enjoying scintillating conversation, marveling at the wonders of nature, and seeing and experiencing the peoples and places of the world are all pleasures that I will never outgrow.

I prefer levity to seriousness and am playful with a wide-ranging sense of humor. Obviously, as a professional with myriad responsibilities in the Northwest literary community, I also know how to be serious when the situation requires.

I have two wonderful sons whom I adore more than anything and whom I consider to be the greatest achievement of my life. I'm not interested in confusing them with the complexities of adult dating, so anyone that I date probably won't get to know them anytime soon. You should know, however, that should things eventually get serious, the three of us are a package deal.

I curse like a sailor much of the time and have been occasionally known to refer to both men and women as "dude". I know a tremendous amount of useless information (a great deal of which comes in quite handy) and a fair amount of stuff that I was told would be useful in school but have yet to actually use. I also have an astoundingly diverse skill set. I can juggle, play the guitar, ice skate, bend a free kick (not quite like Beckham, but who can?), speak wid a Jamaican accent mon (I was born there), blow smoke rings, dominate at Scrabble, make a willow whistle, cook a wide variety of scrumptious dishes, curl my tongue into that three-leaf-clover thing, and always know the best time to come out with a "that's what she said".

I am looking for someone to spend time and share experiences with. Someone who is smart and articulate, but can also share a laugh over something inane. Someone who wants to get knee-deep in all that our fine city and region has to offer. I'm looking for someone who is comfortable going out and about in jeans, a t-shirt and without make-up but who also likes to get dressed up smokin' hot and go out on the town from time to time. Someone who takes care of their hair, can wear high heels should the occasion arise, would feel comfortable wearing a bikini at the beach, will go running with me, isn't a militant vegan, can be supportive and caring but can also tell me off when necessary. None of these things are deal makers or breakers, but like Matthew McConaughey said in Dazed & Confused "It'd be a lot cooler if you did".

If this seems like something like like to be a party to, drop me a line.

For fun:

I like exploring, learning, laughing, discovering, and trying "to suck out all the marrow of life" (to borrow a phrase). I wander museums, stroll in parks, sing and cheer at Sounders games, eat good food, go out to a show or stay in and watch a dvd.

Favorite hot spots:

I love to travel and have done so extensively. New Zealand tops the list of where I haven't been but want to go. If I could be anywhere else right now it would probably be St. Barth's. Locally, I like Cafe Presse, The Twilight Exit and B&O.

Favorite things:

In my itunes you will find Pink Floyd, Snoop Dogg, The Dead, Radiohead, Bob Marley, Massive Attack and Guns N' Roses (et al.).
I find that a good chef can make almost anything taste amazing.
I love to watch Louie, Family Guy, The Wire, & Magnum PI.

Last read:

This is kind of my job, so I could go on and on but my favorites are: Cloud Atlas, Shadow of the Wind, Infinite Jest, Kafka on the Shore, Jitterbug Perfume, Life: A User's Manual, Midnight's Children, The Sound & The Fury and Great Expectations.
