My self-summary
I'll steal this from dear old Yeats:

Being Irish, I have an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustains me through temporary periods of joy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a corporate lawyer, so of no use should you seek to keep a relative out of jail.

I watch Premiership football, the Jays, the Leafs and the *WORLD CHAMPION* Chicago Cubs.

I go to live music at venues like the Cameron House, the Dakota, the Horseshoe and Lee's and will travel for a favourite who's not coming through town.

I also play golf, walk the earth, read and write and sip rather than shoot.
I’m really good at
letting the air out of a bad day, slicing cheese, shoveling snow, raking leaves, banging into things, mowing the lawn, not mowing the lawn, sitting on patios, opening wine, pouring wine, waiting for a Guinness, and crosswords. Add all those up and I appear to be a drunk semi-literate gardener. Okay then.
The first things people usually notice about me
Some say I have a voice made for radio; others a face. Fair comments both in my opinion. I may also be sporting one or more bandages a la Mr. Bump.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I can't imagine life without movies. From Hollywood classics (Billy Wilder, Cary Grant) thru American and foreign auteurs (Kubrick, Kurosawa, Peckinpah) to current greats (Fincher, the Coens, Wes Anderson). Please also note a mild obsession for samurai and 70s chop-socky flicks. Because samurais! And bad dubbing!

Music is going when movies stop, tending to indie/alternative but I can enjoy just about anything. Of late I've been listening to CBC 2 more frequently.

Authors? Ians Rankin and McEwan, Johns le Carre, Irving and MacDonald, George Orwell, JG Ballard, Joseph Conrad, Graham Greene, Umberto Eco, Tom Robbins and Raymond Chandler.
Six things I could never do without
are, in no particular order:
1. Entertainment.
2. Peanut butter cups. And I share.
3. Travel, in spite of the travelling.
4. Pleasant things, beyond peanut butter cups, to eat and drink with friends.
5. Nature, beauty, and beauty in nature.
6. Laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
who eats at IKEA. And why.
On a typical Friday night I am
not answering my phone. Nuh uh.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I have mad scientist hair. And too many shoes.
You should message me if
any of this describes someone that you would meet for a coffee, which I don't drink, but that's beside the point.
The two of us
