I've known myself as long as I can remember. :D I'm thoroughly lovable. Possess boundless energy. And I like to surround myself with smart, funny, interesting and kind people (because most of the time that's who I am). I enjoy hiking, cycling, skiing (downhill) and spending time outdoors. I have an artistic bent. I enjoy entertaining. at home with friends and family, (and yes, I am an excellent cook), going to theater and spending time with funny, smart and interesting folks -- and my little dog, Toto (ok, her name really isn't Toto, but I want to make sure I've got your attention). I have a good circle of friends. (I'm lucky this way), and I love animals, especially dogs. I keep abreast of current events. I get a kick out of going to dinner with folks who enjoy talking about what's going on, debating what's in the news -- be it politics, (national or state), sports or culture. I've worked hard my entire life. I'm successful. And I have an interesting life. I'm at a point where I'd like to have a relationship with someone similarly situated.
