Six things I could never do without
Abundant and full bookshelves (actually, even with double-shelving, I can't fit any more books in them, so I'm Kindling now!)
My family and friends (they're not things, though, are they?)
My piano
The Net - for those info cravings that just won't quit
Lots and lots of space
Decent restaurants - because I don't cook, but I do love good food!
... and my passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How hockey coaches' decisions are influenced by their intuition - yes, that's an actual research subject...

What I'll do when I grow up
What I'll read next
What I'll sing next
What I'll eat next

... plus, you know, light stuff: how education is the great equalizer, how we could improve patient outcomes in our public health care system...
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner (a long one!) and/or playing music with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never ridden a bicycle...
You should message me if
You believe curiosity actually saved the cat from a lifetime of ignorance!
The two of us
