I'm also volunteering for causes that are important to me with people I aspire to be more like.

I like to think I'm also really good at bringing many people in to a group and helping them feel comfortable and included so they can contribute what matters to them.
Oh, and I'm really good at planning last-minute adventures. Or, at least, planning the start of the last-minute adventure and going with however the adventure unfolds.
Now and again, I'll watch a bit of Sherlock or Portlandia. Maybe some youtube clips of Conan O'Brien or Jimmy Fallon. Also Me, You And Everyone We Know.

Books: Sophie's World. I just finished reading Breaking Trail, written by Len Marchand, Canada's first Aboriginal MP.
Music: Bruce Cockburn, Zaki Ibrahim, Don Ross, Haydn, and Souljazz Orchestra.
Food: The usual suspects, y'know, sushi, East Indian, Thai, Korean. I do like me some good fry bread, though.
