And while you're at it, I want a pony.

February 29th would have been my second wedding anniversary, if I were still married. (The alert among you will have already figured out that this means I got married in 2000.) I've been separated for over two years now, and divorced for six months, and I have realized something recently.

I am ready to start dating again.

Of course, I have no idea how a self-employed artist would meet people. A friend of mine has been exploring the wilds of Craig's list for similar purposes, but her results have been mixed enough that I'm totally hesitant to try that. On the other hand, I'm also enough at a loss that on the way home from Fall River (it's about a two hour drive) tonight I started composing a personal ad.

Let's see.

Self-employed, financially independent artist seeks person(s) for acquaintanceship, flirtation, possible escalation. I am: divorced, female, 36, eclectic, geeky, mercurial, empathic, intellectual, opinionated, radical, insecure, overscheduled, tactile, energetic, intimidating, picky, prickly, defensive, spontaneous, amusing, tough, devoid of ownership issues, bad at communicating needs strongly, moderately traumatized but so over the glamour of my own tragic past, and can cook. I am looking for someone(s) who is/are: 25-55, single or in an open relationship, solvent, outdoorsy, creative, adventurous, ethical, ambitious, geeky, competent, active, curious, friendly, funny, and not a picky eater.

Anybody not within a reasonable commute of Hartford, CT, need not apply.

And then it occurred to me... I could ask my Internets!  So there you go.

Internets, set me up with your friends!


Ack! People are giving you *advice* when you asked for soylent greenpeople!

Be merciful, matociquala!
Yeah, that always happens. *g* Ask for something specific, get unsolicited other options.

Unsolicited advice, the primary emotional transaction of lj.
Hey, at least I offered a party invitation!
Hey, THAT I will take.

And yanno, maybe I will have this book mostly done by march 29th.

Maybe you will. Were you aware that right next to the Sushi Place That Delivers, there's now also an Indian Place That Delivers? Just in case you need sustenance while writing, you know.

And do let me know if you need further Emergency Booze Deliveries.
I was. Alas, the food from the Indian place is inedible. (and the sushi has gone wayyy downhill. The last delivery I got from them was inedible.)
Huh. We actually enjoyed the Indian, although I have noticed the decline of the sushi place too. Which is why I tend to stick to the udon.
mmm. Udon.

I ordered the saag paneer from the Indian place and wound up not eating it. Which made me SAD.
We got, um, a paneer thing and makhani dal. And a lot of appetizers. The vegetable pakoras are tasty.
