My self-summary
I like to think that I'm basically doing my best to live up to my Eight-year-old aspirations, though with the ambitions also come the antics.. I often stay up later than is good for me for no reason and I have to fight the urge not to stick my gum under the table. And I'm a weirdo in most of the same ways I was then - I still talk to squirrels sometimes and it makes me sad when balloons pop. I keep a globe next to my bed and spin it around before sleep, tracing the distances across spans of sea with my hand as the massive-giant scale.
As for the actual grown-up part, I'm holding up my end.. I teach college courses in Digital Art (digital painting and illustration, so it gets to be completely creative), and I do events as a demo artist for a hardware graphics company that actually allows such a job to be possible. I also dabble in the other stuff that leads to putting bread on the table; portraits and occasionally, caricatures, fancypants commissions, and some video marketing stuff. These days, I'm starting to get pretty submerged in tech ideas and I'm learning how to code. I think about apps all the time... either new ones or ways to tweak ones I've come up with. I love hashing out their mechanisms like the innards of a clock.
I can't understand how people can tolerate the TTC in the summer when you could be on a bike. I try to be outside as much as possible, which can often mean finding me with my laptop on a blanket in the lawn or jogging by the lake. I like finding weird dives with a shifty little patio and writing stories there with a pint, but it hasn't been warm enough to take full advantage of this.

I have done a fair bit of travelling, but no where near as much as I'd like, and after last winter, I'm hell-bent on getting away from anywhere north for all of next season. My uncle is in Syria, after barely leaving his house for four years. This continues to blow my mind.
I think a lot about things I'd like to paint or occasionally (and hopefully more this summer), actually painting them. When I'm not doing that, I'm thinking about why I'm not more socially-minded, in terms of actually helping make the world less shitty. That, or to-do lists, mostly involving stories to write and things to make, so yeah.. I spend a lot of time inside my head. But I go big the other way too- I waste away hours on patios or friends' decks like nobodies business, I love a good drink and gab.
I’m really good at
- saving birds (yesterday a hummingbird, last month a hawk), from unusual situations that somehow only I come across.
- drawing
- parallel parking
- playing pool
- smooth manuvz on my bike.
- swimming (incl. consecutive somersaults, forwards AND back!!)
- frequent baths (winter only)
- working in bed
- french braids
- basic floor gymnastics
- conversations with strangers
- both causing AND diffusing situations
- getting really wrapped up in one political story for a while (I know).
- hanging out with kids
- computer stuff
- speaking french
- speaking in general.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Point Counter Point, A Confederacy of Dunces (these are the top two books I have ever read, and both have held that tie-position for several years), Hemingway short stories, Mark Twain short stories (the $ 30 000.00 Bequest), Chekov short stories. Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, The Fire Dwellers, The Autobiography of Mack Sennet. Vonnegut.
Movies: Toy Soldiers. Lost Boys. Terrence Malick in general. Tarantino except the re-cut release of True Romance, though I respect what he was going for. Badlands, Fear and Loathing, Goodfellas, Cold Mountain, Straw Dogs, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Weekend at Bernie's.
Shows: Mad Men, Shameless, Game of Thrones, Girls, My Sad Fat Diary, Broad City, Silicon Valley, Louie

I painted the Pablo Honey baby on my closet door when I was 13. If there was one song I could perform live, it would be Love Buzz. In my heart, Wheat Kings is the real National Anthem. A lot of classic rock but very anti-Rush and I want to suffocate Kim Mitchell in his sleep. Classics: Tom Petty, Neil Young, The Boss, The Temptations, Aretha. I do like Arcade Fire, I love that old Avalanches album "Since I left You", , Sloan, Zappa (*Sleep Dirt), Cake, The Band, CCR, Daft Punk, Devendra Banhart.
Food: I eat everything but have aversions to too-spicy things (sad, though I've worked my way up a lot), and tomato soup.
The six things I could never do without
1. Seeing my cat clawing frantically at the window when he spots me outside
2. Chubby children running around laughing
3. Silhouettes
4. bananas
5. The possibility that there is someone exactly like me, living a completely different life, somewhere very far away
6. That 'clouds' moment on an airplane, when everything in life feels okay, at least once a year.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
David Suzuki is sort of like my mental guilt dad, every time I waste water it triggers his scolding face, and it usually does the trick. But it sometimes just makes me rebel and waste more.
I also dream constantly of a day when rollerblades will make a comeback, just so they'll start making them properly again.

You're good at Jeopardy, execute excellent deadpan (and I mean you are so sarcastic you come off stupid), and if need be, you'd make an excellent pilot.
