I'm rather short, but try to make up for it by jumping up and down a lot. I love dancing, lazing outside in parks in the summer, cooking up vegetables, and getting around all seasons by bike. I'm up with social, environmental, gender, et al justice and general lefty-stuff. Sometimes I get into raucous political arguments at parties but always end the night as friends.
Sometimes I look at the profiles of San Francisco men because I used to live there and miss it and dream of going back and goddamn you gents are fine. Not that Toronto guys aren't. You are also cute. Both so cute. Eugh.
*Except for when I'm in SF* I'm interested in investing in someone over the longer term. In other words, I've cracked open my heart and am ready for a mutually loving, affectionate, kind relationship (we are each enhanced by the other, and all that). So if you are just looking for a bedroom romp, as lovely as that sounds, I ain't the cat for you.
I make tasty food and absolutely love to cook. My brother and I cook our folks dinner a few times a month, usually from a different country each time. Ethiopia, Italy, and el salvadore were delicious. Kiribati and east Timor were...different.

I read the news, and especially the regularly disheartening reports about climate change (I'm that guy at a party). I also have a subscription to The Economist, Spacing and The Walrus. Sometimes it takes me months to read them, I'm sad to admit.
Blazing Saddles, Away From Her, Downfall, Waltz with Bashir, The Usual Suspects, Lord of the Rings, anything with Buster Keaton and yes, I laughed quite heartily at the new 21 Jump Street.
Souljazz Orchestra, Basia Bulat, Sarah Harmer, Beatles, Motown, Joel Plaskett, Hayden, Gordon Lightfoot, Charles Bradley (aka the "screaming eagle of soul"), Lemon Bucket Orkestra, big band jazz, most kinds of live music and...Anything that facilitates groovin' (this, for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bV3wiOZpa8&fb_source=message)
Local, seasonal veggies and fruit, cheese, beans, spicy curries of any kind, and a home cooked meal with a friend or family.
I'm a mostly-vegetarian in that I try not to eat meat or fish unless I know where it's come from and/or how it was harvested. But I try not to be a pretentious jerk about it.
-dancing, walking, goodlifing, the occasional jog
-cooking...as much as possible
-environmentalism, community-building and volunteering
-laughing endlessly with friends and family
Otherwise, I may be:
-curled in bed listening to the CBC and doing sudoku (aka brain crack). These days, I am burning my way through X Files and The Good Wife
