Although I have a few close girlfriends, most of my friends are male. There are men in all of the other meetups I attend, and the MAIN reason, is that I work in IT, so I am around men all day long! I am looking forward to making some fun and interesting female freinds for a change:)
Restaurants (eating) bars (social drinking), live music, discussions either about topics or book groups, when the weather is nice I love fests, hiking, and going to Arlington! Really anything outdoors. I like taking the train downtown too, any time of year for city outings.
I am an IT contractor. I work on voice and network systems, but also do desktop support, and canfix up a computer pretty well too! I have thress beautiful girls, 27, 23, and 21. The youngest studying diatetics at U of I in Champaign. As I mentioned, at the moment I live in Arlington Heights with Fena and we get along great together and have a lot of fun entertaining. I grew up in the city and moved out to Palatine after college, got married and had the girls. I was married for nine years, and engaged for a short time several years later. I am a very social person but alsolike to cook, garden, read and swim.
Hi! I'm Lisa, and just recently became Fena's roomie! But I've known her and been to her meet-ups long before, so I know what a great organizer she is, and how fun and worthwhile her events are. I'm really looking forward to this new group!
