Hi, I'm Debra. I find history fascinating, and I am amazed at what people can accomplish. I love nature, and am amazed at the workings of the universe. I really like puzzles, and enjoy the simple things in life. I like structure and order, and am not very spontaneous. This may sound conceited, but I love my own company. Gosh, if someone put a hidden camera in my house, they'd think I was totally nuts! I'm living proof that you can be logical and goofy at the same time.
