Life's too short to drink bad beer! I'm not Barbie,nor do I care to be. Ok that's not completely true,Have you seen all her cool stuff? And the woman has done everything! About me...I just moved back to Oak Park YAY! I love Oak Park! It's close enough to the city,for all the fun stuff,but none of the headache of parking or traffic. Plus we have the greatest neighborhood restuarants and pubs,not to mention fabulous old buildings. I am here because my dearest cousin Claire has encouraged me to try this. I have to be honest. I am only part Jewish,and was not raised in the faith. My cousin was and thinks this is a good idea, and a completely trust her judgement. I have a number of interests. I love music,movies live theatre,board games, and museums. I'm not a big sports fan, but I do enjoy hockey. My musical tastes run from old punk to classical. I can't stand country or rap. My favorite bands are Tool.A Perfect Circle(or anything Maynard james Keenan is involved with), and Blue October. I also love 80's music, Depeche mode, Sisters of Mercy etc. As I previously mentioned I just moved back to Oak Park. It would be nice to start out with simple dating. What ever happened to getting to know someone over dinner and drinks? It seems everyone I meet any more either wants instant relationship just add female, or no strings sex. Does a happy medium even exist any more? I am also really interested in making new friendships. I don't know many people here and I would really like to make some friends ,with similiar interests to hang out with. If this sounds good to you please massage me.
