The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm a passionate person...I love my cat and my friends a lot. I love to laugh and have fun. I enjoy cooking, gardening, and being productive with my time - even if it's just knitting or going for a walk. And I love my iPad.
I typically spend my leisure time
Knitting, reading, gardening, exercising, hanging with my friends...I like to be productive...
The most influential person in my life has been
The ability to live in the moment, and have a good time. Of course, honesty, kindness, humor, and intelligence are also important...No, seriously, you have to be totally funny, preferably in that sarcastic, off the cuff way, and really sweet, totally into your hobbies and friends. And you must want to do stuff, really cool stuff...like midnight kayaking or spur-of-the-minute traveling...or even cooler stuff...(you input is required here). And smart. You need to know things, and get stuff. Talk the talk. Walk the walk.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably that I'm Canadian - apparently, my accent still shines through...but also that I'm a really down to earth person. I'm not shy, I enjoy people and conversation! I am honest, and don't bullshit. I'm looking for that in return!
The last book I read and enjoyed
Lady Vernon and her Daughter by Jane Rubino - a novel that was based on one begun as Lady Susan by Jane Austen, but never completed. I loved it! Happy endings for the good characters, lessons for the bad ones, relaxing and adventurous all at the same time.
The three things which I am most thankful for
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Gah, everyone notices my height first...but my wit, oh, my wit!!
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Intelligent, Loyal, Outgoing
A little more about me
I just finished building my kitchen...almost entirely by myself! I'm not afraid to try new things or take chances. I love hot air ballooning, sunrises and playing pool. I also love to travel, although most of my experience thus far has been domestic!
