My self-summary
The Hobbits of the Shire placed a great deal of value in enjoying time spent with family and friends, and the simple pleasures of food and drink. Like the halflings of myth, I have been there and back again. The quest for gold and other buried treasures had sent me to remote parts of Canada. Now I enjoy a more settled city life.

My interests do fall into the nerdy and or science fanboy side of things.
So on a random evening I might be reading a polar explorers biography, or watching Futurama reruns. Rest assured my life is not lived indoors all the time. I could not live without a solid bike and great walking shoes.

Random things I think about:
Don't blink. Not even once, I know where my towel is. I am a Polyatheist, I don't believe in all gods.
Not singing is just one of the many public services I provide.

My cupboard overflows with random sauces, spices. There is a tendency for me to impulse buy sauces when I am at ethnic markets, I will then try to find a use later.

What I’m doing with my life
I spent two and a half years working in the Northwest Territories. The mining industry is not suited for hobbits. So now I make it a point to enjoy city life and what the West coast has to offer. I am also working on a novel which is too early in its development to be anything but awful.
I’m really good at
Bread. I make an excellent baguette.
Dinner parties, though rare, my guests leave happy and well fed.
Forgetting where I put my keys.
Remembering obscure facts I have no good reason to know.
Appeasing my cat.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am not in fact a hobbit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are a great many books I have enjoyed through the years. Here are some that have left a mark on me. Mary Roach's humourous science romps, Stiff, Bonk, and Packing for Mars. Currently reading The Worst Journey in The World, a good reminder never to try to walk across Antarctica. My favorite book on food is Choice Cuts, food writing through the ages.

I have read far too much camp sci-fi for one lifetime among the favorites and less campy; include Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, Iain M. Banks's Culture universe, some Harry Dresden is occasionally on order.

Shows watched regularly include; QI, Community, Dr. Who, Futurama.
A smattering of documentary and historical programming creeps in, I do like the BBC's miniseries.

My musical tastes are well broad but shallow. There is a hodge podge of pop, classical, metal and other.
Six things I could never do without
Flour, water, yeast, and salt.
A Kitchen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make life interesting for the folks in my novel
Will my cat try to bite me.
The mechanics of creativity, inspiration is easy, to be creative every day is habit that must be built.

World domination
How do you get to Sesame Street. Seriously How.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am still working on getting the hang of Friday nights. It seems I run around enough during the week that I come home do some house work. Make a good meal and have a cold beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no idea what I am doing here.
You should message me if
If you laugh at weird things
Take life lightly.
Are willing and able to have nerdy conversations.
The two of us
