Yahoo Personality Type: IDEALIST
Opening the world to new possibilities, the Idealist's life mission is making the world a better place. They care about big ideas and issues as well as the lives of people around them. In many ways, they're ideal friends and co-workers who inspire others to pursue their dreams.

Yahoo Love Style: SENSIBLE
A Sensible lover wants a lifetime companion, through good times and bad. They don't expect love at first sight. Liking and respecting someone is a good start, and as comfort and closeness grow, love can emerge.

Keirsey / Myers-Briggs Type: INTP (The Architect)
Introverted, iNtuiting, Thinking, Perceiving -- The Architect's major interest is in figuring out structure, build, configuration -- the spatiality of things. They also desire to let others know about whatever has come of their engineering efforts so they tend to take up an informative role in social exchanges.

Tickle Intellectual Type: VISIONARY PHILOSOPHER
The Visionary Philosopher is highly intelligent and has a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others and predicting patterns.


Are you married? . . .
Are you gay? . . .
Are you psychotic? . . .
Are you an atheist? . . .

If you can answer "No" to these questions, you may be the next winner in the ... (drum roll) ... Mr. No Championship!

All you have to do to see if you have won is contact the owner of this profile with some interesting little tidbit about yourself.

You could include: a favorite d'oh moment (a la Homer Simpson) ... a favorite pet story (recent or not) ... the weirdest thing you ever gave your mom for Mother's Day ... or maybe something completely different.

(FYI: I've got funny answers to all of these.)


I'd like to find a man who is more interested in my mind than my erogenous zones -- who wants to *know* me intimately before he knows me *intimately*. (grin)

He'll be godly, fun, friendly, kind, laid back, trustworthy, and most other positive traits. He can have money or not but we definitely won't click if it's the biggest thing to him.

Cool things on my wishlist (definitely NOT required): likes country music and 80's pop ... likes dancing (country and otherwise)(skill aside) ... likes traveling on the cheap (roadtrips and camping) ... loves going to movies and watching the Oscars ... smart and knowlegeble but not a 'know-it-all' ... creative and appreciative of others' creativity ... spontaneous and adaptable ... strong and maybe athetic ... can say he's sorry and really mean it ... not overly addicted to TV or Web or PS2 ...

These are great things to have but, above everything, I want him to exist (flaws and all).


My web use tells a lot about me:

I like to read Yahoo news, especially science stories -- I can be a bit of a information junkie when I set myself free. I spend a lot of time sifting through my various email accounts. What makes it worse is that I sometimes take "web vacations" and let things build up for days or weeks!

I've created the Sunshine HTML Resource to serve the greater good (Yahoo Idealist Personality showing?). Then there's the web journal Sunshine Stories, with photos, stories, and artwork from my life (revealing my desire for people to understand me).

My Favorites lists my favorite music, movies, and books, each linked to in order to make a little bit of money (credits to spend at Amazon, actually). I've always been a bit of a cheerleader for my favorite things. Check out some of my favorite web companies on my Credits Page.

On my site, and in life as a whole, I have lots of grand ideas -- which often have not been actualized. This fits right into my Myers-Briggs type: the INTP Architect, always designing systems and passing them off to others to construct.

I guess I just feel it's better to have open / unfinished goals than to have a complacent, dreamless, non-existence -- SoSaysSunny.


What is your personal testimony? How did you come to Christ?
The Lord blessed me with a Christian mother. When I was little, my Mom began "trying to find herself" religious-wise. We tried out churches of nearly every stripe: Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Christian, Church of Christ, Church of God, Lutheran, Episcopal, Pentecostal, Non-Denominational, Quaker, etc. I value the rich diversity of worship styles and sermon topics those years. The one constant among all these churches was a deep respect for the Word of God. Even now, I do not strongly affiliate with any particular denomination -- I judge a church by the scriptural references in the sermons and the warmth of godly fellowship.

Do you have favorite verses, Bible passages or biblical characters? What impact have they made on you?
Some of my favorite verses are quoted in my answer to the next question. I do have a special fondness for the verse "He restoreth my soul" in the 23rd Psalm -- No matter how broken we are, we can stand on the promise that God will restore us, even if the break is all the way down to the heart and soul.

What kind of personal & spiritual goals do you have? Where do you see yourself in the next year? In 5 years?

"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody." (1 Thess 4:11-12 NIV)
I don't know what God has planned for me: Physics grad school? a computer training career? a husband and family? or, maybe something I've never even dreamt of. I am trying to look at this uncertainty of direction as the wonderful anticipation you feel as you begin to open a gift -- because that's what the Christian life really is: God giving us blessings and trials to grow us into the perfect children we were meant to be. I'm sure His plans are better than anything I could come up with.
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" (Jer 29:11 NIV)

How would you describe your appearance? (e.g.: physique, distinguishing features, fashion, etc.)
Curly red-ish brown hair, chocolate brown eyes, soft body perfect for nice hugs (see photos). I smile a lot and joke that my 'default' is a grin. If there are kids around, you'll probably find me down on the ground with them. My clothes aren't high-fashion, mostly a top with a long skirt. If you had told me I'd be wearing skirts this long back when I was in high school, I probably would have laughed at you. But the modesty is actually more liberating than I ever imagined.

What is your personality like? What are your character traits? (e.g.: funny, serious, laid back, orderly, etc.)
I'm generally upbeat and live up to the name my mother gave me (Sunny) though I do have a serious, contemplative side. My father called me Party-Cloudy during my moody teenage years.

What forms of entertainment do you enjoy?
I cofounded a movie club that gathers at least once a week in Atlanta. We have a lot of fun watching the movie and discussing it afterwards. Recently, I moved to Fort Payne, AL, and haven't found a bunch of movie fans yet. Let me know if you'd like to get involved in a Fort Payne movie club.

What are your favorite movies, actors, music, TV shows, etc.?
I like watching DVDs and have lots of kid-oriented stuff [maybe because I want to have kids or maybe because I never stopped being one!] I've gotten my mom and my previous roommate totally addicted to VeggieTales (don't tell anyone, but I have a crush on Larry!). *grin*

What are your interests, hobbies & activities?
I love road trips and have traveled all around the South, some in New England, and a 15-day huge circle out West (5,000 miles on the rental car -- they're going to think twice before they offer me "unlimited mileage" again!). Another hobby is putting neat stuff on my website -- or, more specifically, procrastinating about doing so. [It's been more than 10 years since that western roadtrip and I still haven't gotten all those photos and stories online!]

How do you spend your day? What is your job? What are your family responsibilities?
I just moved to Alabama to join my mom, who bought a fixer-upper house. She likes to watch a lot of TV. We tend to watch sitcoms, movies, and lots of non-fiction (Science Channel, Discovery Channel, Learning Channel, History Channel, Animal Planet, PBS). One of my favorite things to do is have one person read books aloud while the other person cooks or cleans up. When I lived in Atlanta, I read aloud "The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom and the entire "Chronicles of Narnia" series by C.S. Lewis, among others. It isn't too hard to get motivated to cook & clean when it is an enteraining team effort. Sadly, I haven't read aloud in a long time due to conflicting schedules / interests.

Describe how life was growing up. How was your family life?
My parents got divorced when I was two years old. I'd see my father on holidays, mostly. Just before I turned eleven, they both got remarried to other people. I had gotten very used to it just being Mom and me, so there was a fair amount of conflict and rebelliousness in that household. I didn't hear from my father or his parents for several years. [I'm skipping a whole lot of plot: travel, berevement, failed college attempt, five years working, sucessful college, etc.] My parents (Mom and Step-Dad) and I finally started to get along after we no longer lived in the same house. A couple of years ago both of my fathers died and my Mom has become just about my best friend in the world. Hard times do draw folks together.

What kind of relationship are you looking for? What character traits are you looking for?
You know ... there was once a time when I was kinda picky about guys. Now, I'm not so much picky as, rather, looking for the one that God has picked for me. So, all things said, I'm pretty agreeable to hanging out with anyone who is a serious Christian.

Statements beginning with "I WILL NEVER ..." are just invitations for God to test your will versus His. -- SoSaysSunny.
Anything else you would like to add? Any last words?
I have an incredibly neglected website called that is mostly a vanity site along with some useful resources. I think there is a lot of room on the Internet for showing people that you can be a hip, intelligent person and still be a Christian. I guess that's what I try to project, anyway.
