Cooking: there was a time when I thought I'd be a chef. Then I tried working in a restaurant and realized I could have way more fun if I just cooked as a hobby.
Yoga: It's not that I'm really good AT yoga, but I'm really good at trying to get really good at yoga - which just means I like doing it a lot - and am happy to fail brilliantly while trying.
Scrabble: I used to be better - I'm out of practice these days, but there was a time when I was pretty good at it - especially when I had a Scrabble dictionary somewhere nearby...
These days I'm reading a lot about the psychology of well-being (positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, achievement) - pretty cool stuff!
Friday Night Lights and the Wire are two of the best TV series ever made. Parenthood is pretty awesome. Glee is a not-so-guilty pleasure.
Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons, Dan Mangan are all at the top of my playlists these days.
Favourite restaurants include Yours Truly, Enoteca Sociale, Ruby WatchCo., Cafe Belong, but I love trying new places. I read Toronto Life restaurant reviews religiously to figure out where I'm going next.

Or I'm having dinner with my parents.
Or I'm hosting a dinner party.
Or I'm just relaxing and watching TV.
