Planning my trip to Egypt in May 2016
I am a very energetic person. I don't mind staying up all night (as long as I get to sleep some time), talking or dancing or whatever. I love to try new things. I have been told that I am nothing like what a person expects when they meet me. So expect the unexpected. I am probably one of the most honest people you will meet. I don't lie, I am too lazy. It takes too much effort and, well I am blonde ;) I have been all over the US so I have no problem meeting new people and getting comfortable in new situations and surroundings. I can be classy or casual, which ever is called for at the drop of a hat. I like getting dressed up but please don't take away my boxers and t-shirts. I am extremely flexible. I can go out for a night on the town or stay home with a movie or good book. I love anything that makes me laugh. If someone makes me laugh then generally they are all right with me. I don't like scary movies at all. I refuse to watch them, I know for some people this is a deal breaker but that is just how I am. I am totally into compromising but there are certain things I will not do. I have been told I intimidate people, I am very upfront, open, and honest. I don't try to pretend to be something I am not. I like to be a smartass from time to time but I also know when to be serious and sincere. I love to play pool, I am not very good at it but I have a good time. Overall, I think I am a good person. My background: I went to 10 schools before I graduated HS. I have four kids (of the furry kind), my two dogs (Edwin & Marcus) and my two cats (Elizabeth Taylor & George--they are both girls). I have 6 siblings (2 full brothers, 2 stepbrothers, a stepsister, and a half brother), I am the oldest. My half brother is the youngest and he is only 11. I am old enough to be his mom. lol I am of French, English, German, and a little Native American (blackfoot indian) descent. Anything else?? I'll add more as I feel like it.
I live my life to the best of my ability, I hold myself to a higher set of standards than others. I always try to enjoy every day and look on the bright side of the ugliest of situations.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I enjoy hosting people in my home. I try to make sure they have a good time while they visit Tampa. I actually prefer people who are here on conference as I am rather limited on my social time. I must admit, I don't host transplants (people moving to or wanting to move to the area).
I've couchsurfed in Rome with great success! I have also hosted in my own abode!
Sleep....but that always seems to be in short supply. I love trying new things (within reason). I enjoy dancing, reading, relaxing, seeing new things, the theatre, meeting new people, learning.
Music, Movies, and Books
I like all kinds of music except heavy alternative and gangsta rap. I like things that have a good beat.
For movies, anything but scary movies...I don't do horror.
For books, I like fiction....reading is an escape from reality for me. I really enjoy Sue Grafton, Dan Brown, Stephanie Meyer, & JK Rowling. :-) I am reading the classics - Dracula, Three Musketeers, ect.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been to all but six states in the US, from Kodiak, AK to Key West, FL.
I love traveling alone.
I climbed to the top of Mt. Vesuvius.
I go to a new country every year.
Teach, Learn, Share
I enjoy sharing my time with people of like-minded interests. I really enjoy playing tourguide to friends visiting from out of town.
I want to learn everything! LOL
