My self-summary
If you live in the attic they can't call you a basement troll.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on finishing up my undergrad finally (illness, circumstance and indifference have conspired to make it take far longer than it should have) before probably heading to teacher's college, since it's the family tradition and all haha just kidding another year to go, my education is destined to be interminable -_-. I want to be a writer eventually, but I'm pragmatic enough to realize that that doesn't happen overnight, so I'm willing to do another job (whenever I find one) that will probably be fulfilling in the meantime. Still, in furtherance of that goal I'm currently involved with a zine project and a writing group at the 519 that I am informed I fail at going to so I guess I should think twice about mentioning it.
I’m really good at
Cooking, when I don't give in to my baser urges and drown everything in an inch-thick layer of cayenne pepper. I can also write fairly well, which had better be the case given the aforementioned heap of money I'm blowing on not getting an english degree. I like to run, play cards, and dance. I wander all over town in my spare time too, so if there's a nice neighbourhood or tranquil pathway downtown, chances are pretty good that you might see me there some sunny afternoon.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that I'm tall, apparently. You would think with the number of other people kicking around that are over six feet these days that this wouldn't count as remarkable, but I guess some people are easily impressed. Usually the old ones.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite films include Lost in Translation, American Beauty, True Lies because Arnie is awesome and no one will ever convince me of otherwise, Superbad, Dr. Strangelove, Office Space, and that one movie Guy Ritchie somehow got away with making on three different occasions.

I don't watch a heck of a lot of TV, but I have watched a depressing amount of the Simpsons and Law and Order, and I'm addicted to the British series Skins because it is awesome (and I'm not just saying that cuz Luke Pasqualino is hot honest!)

Bookwise I'm a sucker for Margaret Atwood and Kurt Vonnegut, and I also like George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series because I haven't quite managed to bash my inner D&D nerd into submission at this point in time.

My favorite bands are The Arcade Fire, U2, Fear of Tigers, and Fleet Foxes, and I'm also partial to Green Day, Sigur Ros, MGMT when they're not doing their level best to OD and be proud of it for some reason, Anoraak, and Radiohead. I'm also keen on Neil Young since my parents used to play his stuff on long car rides, which made for a welcome interlude between the Rankin Family and Garth Brooks *shudder*. This isn't to say that they both had questionable taste in music, but my mom's love of new country was a fearsome force for evil in this world.

Most food is only worth eating if it's spicy in my view. I love Chinese, Indian, and Carribean for that reason, and take pains to be haughty about the crap that's available out in the suburbs since once you've gone Kom Jug you'll never go back. I also like Japanese and Korean and -- let's just say I like to eat kay?
Six things I could never do without
1. My family

2. The internets

3. My ipod

4. Insulin since I need it to live :(

5. Politics and beer, not necessarily in that order.

6. H&M
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how this profile has none of the wit and sparkle of Murphy Brown.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends or wasting time online cuz I have to work the next day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Pretty well anything if you phrase it as a direct question... I'm a horrible liar :(
You should message me if
you wanna talk to me obviously :P I used to have fun back when instant messengers didn't put firewalls in place to ensure that people didn't actually get to meet randoms online, so why should it be any different here? Also if you have a french accent and dark hair and pretty eyes and nice legs my superficial side would be very appreciative, but mainly just be not insane, have something interesting to say, and share an interest or two with me.
The two of us
