Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy long walks on the beach and candle lit dinners...
Actually, I prefer dinners that involve tasty burgers and short,

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved to Edmonton from Ontario for a job I love. I get paid
to fight for social justice and a more equitable world.
That, and watching a lot of Netflix and trying to figure out how

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Obscure trivia (did you know the term bootlegging comes from
Prohibition when whiskey sellers would ride into town on horseback
and let the locals drink from the whiskey in his boot? If that

-Telling long stories that don't go anywhere, like the time I went
to Shelbyville with an onion on my belt
-Feigning an interest in sports when a team from the general
geographical region I live in scores more points than teams from
other regions and, as a result, ends up in a tournament.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-E Street Radio and Backspin when I have to rent a car with
satellite radio for a long road trip.
-Running water, electricity, indoor heating (seriously,
civilization is pretty sweet.)
-Really awful puns
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How does the National Post continue publishing Barbara Kay's
-How irritated I am by the lack of the jetpacks I feel I was
promised throughout my childhood I'd have by now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
