Reasonably educated, reasonably read, reasonably bright (used to be brighter, but faded after repeated washings). Reasonably reasonable. Can cook without cans (enjoy it, in fact) and prefer to take a moment to crush the ice as it makes a better drink (metaphor alert! Though true literally, as well).
I live downtown and try to take advantage of it - food, live music, theatre, art, baseball. Try to keep the reading up: something by the side of the bed or carried with me; anything from novel to decent magazine article with good non-fiction in between. The artsy side is definitely there, but it's an interest & hobby, not a vocation (but should one of those plays/screenplays ever sell...).
Otherwise, I write some and wander about our excellent 'burg. Consider a fine way to spend a given rainy day would be with CBC radio and a game of strip scrabble, but doing it oneself in a mirror is just a little odd (and ends in a lot of tie games).
- Finding what's interesting in things (it's part of the job; for what I teach, you sometimes have to dig a little for the interesting).
- Well toilet-seat trained; know to let others order dessert, then order something different.

cbc radio, live music and cocktails of whisky;
three more I suppose if you really must know:
local theatre, art galleries and outdoor places to go.
[Apparently I can't do without Seussian metre, either.]
[Don't worry, it's just a lyric; +2 if it rings a bell for you.]
