Fill in the blanks
kissing is sexy;
committment is sexier
Celebrity I resemble most
I look like none of the plastic people i see on TV and in movies…. i’m a full meal my friend, not a snack.
Best or worst lie I’ve ever told
no, no, no… i don’t give it up that easy. (i mean it!)
If I could be anywhere at the moment
Peru: Machu Pichu
Song or album that puts me in the mood
Miles Davis: Kind of Blue; Dave Matthews Band–all of ’em (there’s something about a man who likes sex and says so); Led Zepplin–Whole Lotta Love; Doors; Joan Armatrading; Nina Simone (Essential Vol. 1 + 2); Marvin Gaye (All); Bob Marley (All); Sade (Best of); D’Angelo (the man encourages ‘mood’)..
The five items I can’t live without
Reading material, CDS, my Ruby iMac DV+, my Sony Discman, coffee
In my bedroom, you’ll find
tanzanian wood; phillips mini stereo; bed, ‘Anne Rampling’ erotica collection; trashy romance novels (they’re strangely liberating); CD collection; condoms all over the place (on the floor, in corners, in handbags), people comment and take them (which was my plan all along!); growing collection of brazillian and italian leather shoes… candles; incense; and my cat Odie doing his ‘lumpy-cat’ routine.
WHY YOU SHOULD GET TO KNOW ME
i am forgiving by nature and intensely loyal to my tribe (friends and family). I also tend to be tolerant and diplomatic (until I can’t be anymore); I love to laugh, and make people laugh (i believe it’s good for alll that ails ya!); I love kink without cruelty, love without fear, and men who call me baby…
MORE ABOUT WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR
a person with laughter in his eyes and tenderness in his hearts; someone who knows how to handle me without making me feel like shit; someone who is a whole circle looking for a whole circle, semicircles are no fun anymore; intelligence and sense of humor (rote i know, but a classic for a good reason!); someone who’s not afraid to be a man and let a woman be a woman and the wisdom to know the difference between the two and respect that difference for what it is (a carefully orchestrated plan by nature.)
Some of it is still true.
