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.
The 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.
