Bio
What I Like:
warm sunny days; playing in water that's not icy cold; things that make me smile; things that make me laugh; animals - especially furry ones I can pet or play with, like cats, dogs, ferrets...and elephants, though they're not furry & I've never petted or played with one, though I did ride one at a fair when I was little; curling up with a good book (memoir, bio/autobio, fantasy/sci-fi, various other genres ) - when I don't have to be anywhere (including asleep) anytime soon; the color of green that leaves are when the sun shines through them; singing, or listening to music (huge eclectic variety...); curling up on the couch under a blanket and drinking hot cocoa watching a movie when it's rainy out; occasionally running around in the rain, especially the crazy rain of Colorado Springs in the summer, when it's sunny then all of a sudden it's raining crazy hard, and sometimes it hails a little too, but an hour later it's sunny again and the streets are already starting to dry; South Park (most of the time)
What I Don't Like:
(in alphabetical order) ageism, antisemitism, classism, heterosexism, lookism, racism, sexism; any other pattern of prejudice and oppression; the gender binary and other crazy social constructs; being cold; creepy-crawly critters with lots of legs, particularly when they're crawling around near me; gory/horror movies, especially ones that give me (run with me here) a psychological "ick" feeling (for example, I Did Not Like "The Ring" but "Blair Witch" was fine); reality TV!
