Greetings from T.O. (Toronto)!
I live with my partner Randy, 50, and our 3 cats Mouse (male orange tabby, age 12), Never (female B&W, 16) and Popcorn (female, all-black, 1). We live in a high-rise condo downtown that overlooks a beautiful arboretum and off-leash dog park called Allan Gardens.
Currently, I'm not working as I've been dealing with major depression for several years, but I returned to a transitional program a couple years ago at George Brown College, which I hope to finish soon, after which I hope to go on to an assistant cook training program at the same college. So, obviously I love to cook and eat. I love most cuisines, especially Japanese, Korean, Mexican, and Italian. And of course I love food-related TV shows!
Some of my other hobbies: reading, singing, walking, swimming, music, surfing the Net, writing (poetry, mostly Haiku), collecting inspirational or interesting quotes for publication online, telling groaner jokes and puns, & simple pleasures like long bubble baths and feeding the squirrels in the park. I also love film. Randy & I attend the T.O. International Film Festival every year. We're currently going through the James Bond series. (We just watched Thunderball.) I'm also, I hate to say, a big TV watcher. My current favourite show is The Walking Dead, which my partner and I watch every Sunday night, followed by Talking Dead!

Thank you! I love receiving mail, so I look forward to your card!
P.S. - My former email provider was suddenly shut down recently, so I lost the addresses of those to whom I'd promised a swapped card! So if you're one of those people, I hope to hear from you, so that I can fulfill my obligation! Thanks!
