Hello all, MOTTO: I like to think that my motto in life is Laugh often, Love much and Live well - I believe if you do the first 2 things right then the third just falls into place and you are living well. :)
I like just about everyone I meet. I'm definately a critter person (real or mythical) and I'm quite partial to Dragon Flies. I love aquatic mammals like otters, beluga whales, seals and sea lions, Invertibrates like horsecrabs, squid, octopus
Land mammals especially racoons and dogs.
Any poor animal that's been villianized like bats, snakes and spiders.
I'm also a rock hound - I have rocks and fossils everywhere in my house.
I'm very hooked into nature and the great outdoors, especially the mountains and the oceans.
DISLIKES: Mean and Judgemental people.
HOBBIES/PASTIMES: I love camping, backbacking, hiking, kayaking, swimming, and letterboxing. I'm an archery instructor and challenge course low/high ropes facilitator. I also love to participate/watch most sports - Love basketball, hockey, football and base/softball. I love all kinds of science especially astronomy, earth and wildlife education and I do a lot of activities with scout groups. I'm also a volunteer junkie and I love to give back to the community. I know it sounds cheesy but these volunteer ops have given me far more than I feel I've given to them. I like learning and experiencing new things and will give just about anything a try. I'm a patron of the arts performance, music, etc...
OTHER: My daytime job is in IT mgmt. I have a little fledgling business called "Once upon a Time" specializing in children's dress up theme parties. I don't make any money at it - I just have so much fun interacting with the children.
READING CHOICES: I love to read - I read a lot of the classics, fantasy, gothic novels, and books on Theology and world religions - If you ever get a chance try reading "God is a Verb" - Easy read and a Great book. I also love to read books about travel destinations. I also read a lot of tweener books -(The Twilight series being the last ones) Call it research - Someday, I might just give it a try to write a book myself.
MUSIC: My taste in music is very very diversified and all music seems to speak to my soul on one level or another. however, Soul, Funk, Motown, Bach, Vivaldi, Brahms, Rob Zombie, AC/DC, Evenescence, Nora Jones, Sarah Mcloughlin would be my preferences to listen to.
MOVIES: Although I do not often go to the movies - My favorite kinds of movies are action adventure films - anything with antiquities and action, I love - The Mummy, Indiana Jones (yes even the last one :) ) American Treasure, DaVinci code etc...
TELEVISION: I watch very little TV - in fact I do not have a TV to watch. My son does, but he plays video games on it and that's about it. Anything I need to watch is on the INET - I have to confess I'm a huge fan of FRINGE and Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
