I am a walking contradiction. I look like the highschool cheerleader, but act like the band geek. I can be outrageously extraverted and then, in the next moment, stun myself by my shyness. I am a spiritual metaphysician who was raised by atheists. I am a Saskatchewan bred lass who can't stand cowboy boots. I am a bookworm who enjoys shopping for lipgloss, and a girlie girl who only takes ten minutes to get ready in the morning. Although I am a talker, I am an avid listener as well. My feminist family taught me to be tough, and I am, but I still expect my husband to get rid of the spiders. I am healed by the outdoors, yet have no interest in the Grouse Grind (or any other outdoor activity that might tear a hamstring) and although my fave health gurus are raw vegans, I adore eating me some meat.
My oddities are as follows: I lindyhop, think brussel sprouts are yummy and don't really care much how much money my partner makes as long as he can make me laugh. My sometimes career involves fishnets, fake eyelashes and singing showtunes with herds of gay men. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs for no other reason than I just don't wanna. I consider my exes some of the coolest, kindest men I have ever met, and when I get in my car I always need my sun visor to be down, even when it isn't sunny. I sleep on my tummy, like to stick my head underneath the pillows and prefer showering at night. I am phobic of needles. I used to walk up to people in Safeway when I was a little girl and start singing Tomorrow from Annie at the top of my lungs ...or get lost on purpose in the Woolco so that I could hear my name announced on the loud speaker from the customer service desk. I can't stand seafood and I have a new, secret, budding passion for all things social media.
