The Fun Stuff!
Ancient myths, tall tales and ghost stories - Lore and lies. This has been a summary of my conversations with people I used to go to school with.
Fascinated by every language in the world and endeavoring to pick at least one up before I die. My cats will tell you I sing too loudly and dance terribly, though I would advise you not to believe them as both are notorious liars. Country, hip-hop, disco, soul, grunge, pop, rock and everything in between. My favourite hobby is laughing until I cry and my goal is making others do the same. I must be very funny because people often cry after our conversations
Raised on old movies, so naturally in lieu of having a personality I quote The Simpsons and speak in references. When I’m not hunched over a computer you can find me hunched over other things, such as books, a guitar, or antlers that deer are kind enough to leave on the ground. In short I have developed a mighty hunch which I have been told is quite intimidating.
I also happen to be a die hard Toronto Maple Leafs fan which I believe is a testament to my loyalty - Help me win a bet with my brother and purchase one of my scripts before they win a cup, or we are both dead, whichever comes first! History, history, history - there’s nothing about our past that doesn’t fascinate me. Museums are my happy place and I have been known to scour the internet for antiques I do not need nor can I afford.
Road trips are the name of the game, so tell me where I should visit and the best place to eat there - I assure you I will write it down and then lose the paper. The way to my heart is a good plate of barbecue and I’m always in search of the next best cheesecake. My mom says I was raised right and I believe her. The dream one day is to buy a farm and start an animal rescue so I no longer have to be aware of my arms when talking to people. Animals don't seem to mind.
