I am interested in many things such as politics, economics, art, indie music and food. I feel passionate about health-care and policy and frequent health conferences.
When I lived in the city...
I enjoyed hobbies such as lindy-hop dancing, reading, arts & crafts, taking drum lessons, watching roller derby, cooking, travels abroad and more.
Since moving to the north, I mostly go for hikes with my dog (not much to do around here).
Failed attempt to get a dodgeball thing going. I do have 9 balls (my dog ate 1).
I am witty, hilarious, and creative
I wish I could do the robot better.
*mangosteens are the most delicious fruit ever!
-I don't like bitter melon and can't stand the smell of fermented bamboo shoots.
The weirdest/best thing that I had the privilege of seeing was a Murray Schafer composition. It blew my mind!
I enjoy live music immensely. It kills me to not be able to attend shows regularly. I guess I must learn to make my own music?
, I love podcasts of 'This American Life' and anything CBC.
My favourite film is 'Amelie' and I like other Jean-Pierre Jeunet like 'Delicatessen'. The Goonies are a staple since childhood.
A Christmas Story still cracks me up and gets funnier every year.
The saddest movie ever that gave me a football sized throat lump was called 'Khaled' a humble Toronto-based film.
Jon Stewart is the prototype of the ideal man.
I don't watch much TV but I can't tear myself away from an episode of "Love it or List it" at someone else's place with cable.
Books: Lately I'm on a Canadiana kick reading books written by First Nations authors.
I tend to gravitate toward non-fiction but striving for a greater balance of fiction. Sometimes I enjoy frivolous smut.
Should I cancel my New York Times subscription for Globe & Mail? I'm torn.
I know it's cheating but 1 more: Canine companionship.
Encounters with wolves in the winters and bears in the summer.
Sometimes I rock the Canadian tuxedo. There, I said it, "I like to double denim"! My friends give me grief for it.
I must've answered questions in a manner that the algorithms of OKcupid have branded me as 'unprogressive'. I am quite progressive in a lefty-liberal kind of way just to clarify. If you are too, I'm happy to hide in my 'bubble'.
