I'm a woman who is trying to get through the day with the least amount of negativity as possible. I despise passive-aggressive behavior and view it as under-the-radar sabotage; however, I'm intelligent enough to identify and dodge it. I dislike unkind people, those who would harm children (and animals). I have simple tastes, but no price too high for that treasure-of-a-lifetime book. I had a small library in my house which was a room of solace...But after moving and downsizing I find comfort in other ways. I'm curious about everything and sometimes find myself lost in internet sludge hours after telling myself I'm logging in to answer a quick question. I'm shy - although others laugh when I say that. My temper is lethal and I strive continually to tame it.
