That’s what I like about
TMI Tuesday today gives you the opportunity to do what you do best–talk about you.
1. Tell us about you in 10 words or less.
single parent, social introvert, intuitive healer, loves music and words
2. What radio stations do you have programmed and regularly listen to (format, genre)?
107.9 Y108, format: active rock
102.1 the Edge, format: alternative rock
91.1 Jazz FM91, format: jazz, of course
The other three programmable stations are whatever was there when I bought the car a year an half ago.
3. What color are your eyes today?
Brown eyes, as usual. Occasionally they are grey, when I put my colored contact lenses in, but I don’t do that often.
4. Did you shave today?
Not this morning. Every day is too much for my sensitive bits.
5. What’s your personality?
I guess outgoing introvert would go here. I am not shy in the least, which many people think I would be if I am an introvert. I do love meeting new people and talking with them, learning about them, but I need alone time to focus and energize. I have no problem showing my bits off, having sex in front of people, or watching others for that matter, but I don’t get super chatty about it. I’d rather think the experiences over in my head than talk about them because even though it is something done in public it is still a personal experience. Does that make sense? Sometimes I think I talk in circles sometimes and nobody understands me.
6. Tell us two things that most people mention they like about you.
Actually, I was recently told by someone that they like my style and demeanor. I do hear a lot that I am friendly and easily approachable. Those are all good things.
7. Name one thing that you really like about yourself.
My ethnic/color blindness. I don’t believe I’ve shared this story with you all before. A friend and I were out shopping one day, driving down a main street in our city. Single girls, of course we were keeping our eyes out for some good looking men. (Yes, we look just like guys do.) There was a truck to our right with a handsome guy driving it. I mentioned it to my friend. She looked and basically said, he’s black. I said no he isn’t. Yes he is, she said. Then when I looked again, yep, he was. I hadn’t even noticed. Honestly, it is very rare that I do. Coming from a small town where the only people who weren’t “white” were the Chinese family who owned and ran the Chinese food restaurant, the Indian doctor and teacher couple, and another family from somewhere in South America, you notice because they stick out in a town of less than 5,000 people. You also notice because it is pointed out to you at every opportunity. I am very proud of the fact that I left that small town and lost that small town mentality about many things. I hope that I am able to raise my son, whose color I only ever notice when he is in a picture with some pale skinned child, with the same blindness, or openness as one might see it.
BONUS: How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Ha! Sometimes I feel like I’m 16 and other times I feel 80. Maybe those to extremes are more alike that we would care to think.
