My self-summary
I'll steal this from dear old Yeats:

Being Irish, he has an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustains him through temporary periods of joy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a corporate lawyer, but I hope not in everything I do.

I watch the Leafs, Premiership football, movies and Jays games; try to catch live music in Toronto at venues like the Dakota, Horseshoe, and Lee's; play golf; walk the earth; read and write; do modest sums.
I’m really good at
letting the air out of a bad day, slicing cheese, shoveling snow, raking leaves, making popcorn, mowing the lawn, not mowing the lawn, sitting on patios, opening wine, pouring wine, waiting for a Guinness, and crosswords. Add all those up and I appear to be a drunk semi-literate gardener. Okay then.
The first things people usually notice about me
Some say I have a voice made for radio; others a face. Fair comments both in my opinion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I can't imagine life without movies. From Hollywood classics (Billy Wilder, Cary Grant) thru American and foreign auteurs (Kubrick, Kurosawa, Peckinpah) to current greats (Fincher, the Coens, Wes Anderson). Please also note a mild obsession for samurai and 70s chop-socky flicks. Because samurais! And bad dubbing!

Music is going when movies stop, tending to indie/alternative but I can enjoy just about anything. Live music's a real passion, even if floors seem to be getting harder to stand on for hours - what's the Pursuit of Happiness line: "neck and back are achin'/sight and hearing's fadin'"? While not in the Deadhead category, I will travel to see favourites in foreign venues. New York tends to get the majority of those visits: dear old punk Bob Mould is next up there in April.

Authors? Yes. Ians Rankin and McEwan, Johns le Carre, Irving and MacDonald, George Orwell, JG Ballard, Joseph Conrad, Graham Greene, Williams Deverell, Yeats and Faulkner, Peters Robinson and Mathiessen, Umberto Eco, Tom Robbins and Raymond Chandler.
The six things I could never do without
are, in no particular order:
1. Entertainment.
2. Peanut butter cups. And I share.
3. Travel, in spite of the travelling.
4. Pleasant things, beyond peanut butter cups, to eat and drink with friends.
5. Nature, beauty, and beauty in nature.
6. Laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
ha ha ho ho and hee hee.
On a typical Friday night I am
not answering my phone. Nuh uh.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I have mad scientist hair.
You should message me if
any of this describes someone that you would meet for a coffee, which I don't drink, but that's beside the point.
