I don't watch a ton of movies. I'm a huge Disney fan, I've seen and enjoyed most of their recent films. But otherwise, I generally see a movie when someone else wants to. I'm just tagging along. Hidden Figures was really wonderful, that's the most recent thing I've seen.
TV: During the NHL season, hockey if at all possible. Otherwise, not a whole lot of TV. Reruns of Downton Abbey and West Wing. Archer, Portlandia, and as much Steven Universe as possible. But really, hockey more than anything else. Sharks or Leafs, preferably.
Music: The Mountain Goats, Sleater-Kinney, The Tragically Hip, Pixies, The Dresden Dolls, Lily Allen, lots of Broadway cast recordings (esp. Hamilton and Jesus Christ Superstar), lots of novelty music (Arrogant Worms, Tom Lehrer).
I love all food, but especially Mexican, Thai and Indian. My favorite dessert is key lime pie, followed closely by cheesecake. I'm also a pretty good cook, when I try. Lately my Blue Apron subscription has me trying, which has been really nice.
There's no category for podcasts here, but I'm an avid listener (especially when I'm cross stitching) so I'm making space for it. These days, it's mostly hockey podcasts: Marek vs Wyshinski, Puck Soup, The Steve Dangle Podcast, The Bobcast and Biscuits.
- DMC 310, size 24 needles and 14 ct Aida. Don't care that they're three separate things, I consider them a set.
When the next opportunity to go to brunch will be.
Hockey (Whether or not Burnsie's beard is long enough to be braided. How exactly the NHL intends to punish players who go to the Olympics with the support of their team owner because do you really think that Ovi will be bothered by his contract being voided or something? That's basically sending him to the KHL and getting him a raise. Also, what I'm going to during the lockout. Because let's face it, it's coming).
How late I can get away with sleeping while still making it to the office on time.
- you want to talk hockey. Because my god can I go on about my team, and I probably want to know all about yours. Super bonus points if you follow the CHL, because I can't keep up with prospects.
- you understand that the "friends" part of "friends with benefits" is important
- you're actually willing to meet in person. I like chatting here, but I would like to meet face to face before too long. It's much easier to figure out if something is worth pursuing when you meet in the real world.
I'm pretty easy going and I like meeting new people. If you think we'd get along, please message!
