Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved back to Toronto from Vancouver; I gave the Wet Coast
my best shot, but two years of getting rained on and living under
overcast skies for six months is enough. I try to spend as much of
my free time as I can writing, whether it's weblog articles or
short stories - I write science fiction, mainly, and it's my hope
to ride that bus (possibly even a FLYING bus) as far as it'll go.
It'll be what I am no matter what job I hold down to pay the bills.
I like to travel a lot, whether it's to some far-flung place or
just a part of my own city I haven't been yet. I have been known on
occasion to run for mayor.
I'm into science fiction, history, social games, and other things
of sorts. What others? Perhaps you should ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've got a job that takes up a deal of time, sure, but I'm really
trying to harness the creative spark whenever I can - that's what I
consider to be most important for me. Beyond that, I'm just trying
to understand - I like going places, or nowhere in particular, to
expand my horizons and know new things.
What I'd really like to do is polish my extremely limited
comprehension of Japanese.

writing, if what I've heard from other people is anything to go by.
Putting myself in other people's shoes, listening to my conscience,
feeling what they must be feeling and understanding it. Also, I'm
extremely accomplished at ruining film; I went through four rolls
before I got one that turned out, having made pretty much every
mistake I could make in the meanwhile.

difficulty recognizing it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Isaac Asimov, John Birmingham, Robert J. Sawyer, and Allen
Steele are some authors I follow. I'm into a lot of short fiction
too, which has a wide array of writers and widgets in it.
Movies: Back to the Future, Scott Pilgrim vs. the
World, Terminator 2
Shows: The Amazing Race, Battlestar Galactica,
Castle, Firefly, M*A*S*H, Mystery
Science Theater 3000, Robot Chicken, Star
Music: Rock, pop, and instrumental tracks.
Food: Pretty simple - perogies, pasta, potatoes, soup, burgers of
meat and non-meat varieties, broccoli, and so on. I didn't do much
of the cooking in my previous arrangements, so I'm still learning
on that front.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pens and paper, for taking notes; books; tea, whether it be orange
pekoe, earl grey (hot), rooibos, or something else entirely; an
oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere; my camera; that urge in the back of my
brain that gets me walking down new ways and turning around fresh

On a typical Friday night I am

just getting off work downtown. If I've got no plans, I'll be
writing or noodling around at home, but starting off the weekend
with drinks or a movie is a good time too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have constructed elaborate rationalizations for travelling to
other cities when all I really wanted to do there was ride and
evaluate their public transportation. I am a transit nerd, yes.
