|my boyfriend, George|
So, here are 7 things about me in no particular order:
I love being Canadian and just about anything related to Canada especially poutine. Yes yes, let the jokes fly. I can't imagine living anywhere else and although I hate to travel I can always be talked into traveling somewhere in Canada. My favourite place to visit is the East coast because there is lots of great beer there. That is also where my Great Aunt Helena lives so that means there are peanut butter chocolate chip cookies there, and molasses cookies and mustard pickles and fresh rolls with butter and on and on. I also love Canadian music, The Guess Who, Tragically Hip, April Wine, Barenaked Ladies, FM, Goddo, Alanis Morrisette, Anne Murray (shut up), Gordon Lightfoot, I Mother Earth, Our Lady Peace and the list goes ON and ON. Yes, it's true I even love Nickelback. I've been obsessed with all things Rush lately purchasing two documentaries and a bunch of songs off iTunes as well as one of Neil Peart’s books.
I’d rather be blind than deaf. I can’t imagine a world where I couldn’t listen to music or hear the crunch of the earth beneath your feet or a dog lapping up water from a bowl or someone whispering softly in your ear. I'd miss the sights for sure but if I 'had' to choose, I'd rather be blind than deaf.
As you already know, Beth Hart is my favorite singer. Although our life experiences are different (thankfully), her voice, music and lyrics connect with me in a way like no other. If you want to hear my happy, listen to Beth, if you want to hear my pain, listen to Beth. I almost named my bike Beth but someone (who?) said I should name it after a boy, not a girl. I’m a bit sorry about that but I do love ‘George’ (named after Stroumboulopoulos, also Canadian).
I can never spell “Stroumboulopoulos”, I always have to look it up and even after I look it up it still looks wrong. George, you should know that I won’t be changing my name after we are married.
I love dogs, I know HUGE shocker right. My preference is big dogs, the bigger the better. No offense to people that have little dogs, little dogs are cute but gimme a big dog any day. If I had my way I’d own a Weimaraner named Ice and a German Shorthaired Pointer named Little Sister and Great Dane named Tate.
I should definitely say something about training right. While I absolutely hate the process of training, the swims are boring, the runs just plain hurt and we all know how often I fall off the bike and while that is always funny it's generally not pleasant, the only reason I do it is because it feels SO good when it’s over. I’ve come to depend on that feeling.
I call my friends 'homey' but not because I think I'm from the 'hood' but thanks to my iPhone auto correct. So if I call you homey, it only means I think very highly of you, I don't call just anyone homey.
I have to tag 5 people but since I'm late to the game and most people have already done this, if you haven't done it yet consider yourself tagged (coughFRANcough).
That's all I got...
