Hopefully I will not put you to sleep with a boring discussion of my interests. If you are a masochist, please read on...
I live in the United States in the quiet land of Kentucky - home of basketball, horses and bourbon, not necessarily in that order. I work long, dull hours at a computer company. My very dear work companions are like brothers to me. I am one of the few females in our department and much to my mothers dismay, am just one of the guys.
I attended a wonderful private college where I earned degrees in English and Political Science. I minored in Theater and Music and am a rabid fan of the arts. I went on to receive my Masters in Business. While I have been employed in more glamorous professions, my abilities have always run to the technical side so I ended up in computers (despite all of my degrees to the contrary).
I take great pleasure in a large variety of subjects. I am a creature of knowledge. I am a great reader and writer. I collect antique books, vintage French postcards (ooo-la-la) and classic Hollywood autographs. I prefer the art of Godward and Bougeureau and do not care for the Impressionist Period. As a child I was fascinated by King Tut and Cleopatra and taught myself how to read Hieroglyphs. I had wanted to be an Archeologist.
My major regret is not being better in Mathematics (well, that and not being taller). I also wish I had paid more attention during my French and Spanish language courses - and learned the Cello.
