About me

Occupation physician
Location Wisconsin, United States
Introduction I am probably a closet reactionary masquerading as an easy going push-over. Growing up, I went to a Christian Science church and became a doctor. I no longer affiliate myself with any religion for many reasons, one of which is not wanting to give up any of my weekend. I was raised in the Air Force and am now staunchly liberal and hate to move. I do love to fly, however, something my husband will never understand. I can keep a secret. I will never give another speech. I kiss my dog on the mouth but not for an hour after I see her eat a bug. I value comfort over style and rarely change my appearance. I believe passionately in fighting sexism and racism. I have a long attention span and truly love my job. I tend to like most people I meet. I am very shy. But can fake the whole outgoing thing when wearing my professional persona. I hate calling people on the phone. I love e-mail. I run 15-20 miles a week so I can eat the food I like. I met my husband my 1st week of college. I had never expected to marry someone as I never thought I would find someone to put up with me and my career choice. We've been together 23 years. Guess there is someone for everyone.
Interests Food, drink, and gardening for food and pleasure.
