The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about nature and the outdoors, reading, history, music, learning, travel, and my current quest to improve my life by changing my lifestyle and habits. I am at the beginning of the long road of getting into shape, becoming healthier, and staying that way!
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to read in my spare time. When I have a chance, I enjoy movies (anything from current releases to old black & white musicals). I enjoy walking my dog and try to spend some time out of doors when I can, especially once it starts to cool off a bit more. Right now a lot of my spare time is being spent trying to get into shape - at the gym, yoga class, riding my bike with my dog, etc.
The most influential person in my life has been
Of course, a sense of humor that is compatible with mine...this ranges from an appreciation/understanding of sarcasm to a willingness to be silly when the situation calls for it. An appreciation of the outdoors and animals is great. Also, while you don't have to share all of my obscure interests (like old musicals, john wayne, classic jazz, bluegrass and Star Trek), the ability to not mock those interests is integral. The sense of humor usually helps with that part :P
The first thing people notice about me
Sarcasm with a side of dry humor.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I often read delightfully cheesy romance novels - the type with swooning maidens and bare chested men on the cover...pure brain candy. I'm currently reading A Voyage Long and Strange, a humorous look at early American history pre-Pilgrims. I also read historical fiction, travel essays, young adult stuff, and anything by Charlotte Bronte.
