- Performing on stage and before a camera:
I love being an actor, ever since I was in Junior High School. I almost wish though, that there was some other passion that took me away from this frivolous profession and into a stable job. I've toyed with wanting to work at r*pe crisis centres, helping others, but it has given me many wonderful moments in my life, regardless of what I was going through at the time. Dare I say, it's my religion.
- DVD's/movie buff: I had a friend in High School (whom is now on my Facebook friends list) who turned me onto movies and the history of them. Being in drama class, my teacher gave us an assignment to watch all of Alfred Hitchcock's movies then do an essay on them to earn extra points. I was too lazy to do the essay part, but I watch all the movies I'd rented from the library and enjoyed them immensely. There were some old movies that came on the tv, on PBS especially and also late night. Those were some good times, along with "The Honeymooners" and "The Twilight Zone".
- Jewelery-Making: I have a good friend of mine who was into making daisy-chain necklaces. I was in awe and inspired that about a year after moving to Vancouver, I took up the hobby myself, working at a bead store to learn more about it and get better. At the time, I had a room mate who hogged the tv so without tv or the internet, my only hobby was jewelry-making. I loved it and still do, if it weren't for the internet. It kept my hands from fidgeting and soothed my nerves too. It was quite meditative. On lonely Xmases, I'd make something while playing a spoken word CD, mostly "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead" I'd borrowed and taped from the library. I abandoned that tape when I moved away. I might even find it somewhere on the internet or at my local library. Anyway, I have so many beads and wire to make jewelry that I can't imagine getting rid of it all. I've made very little profit from it, but that never motivated me, at all. It was the creation of it and the outcome, but once done, I'd want to make another.
- Teddy-bears: My first teddy-bear, I gave it the same name my little brother gave his. I was so attached to my little brother that I'd have done anything for him. It's like he was my living toy doll. *Ahem* Anyway, I have a few, some not bears but rabbits or monkeys, but teddy-bears are my first love.
- Lip balm: I hated having dry lips when I was younger so I licked my lips a lot. I read in a teen magazine at the time that putting lip balm or lip gloss would stop that habit. To a degree it has, since if I go for hours without anything on my lips, I hate the idea of licking them, for I know that they'll dry up. My purse, jacket pockets and niches in my room have lip balms galore!
- Online Diaries: I discovered Diaryland through another message board for lesbians and bisexual women (long gone now), where a woman asked about wanting one. I'd never heard of such a thing before and checked it out. I still have it but I rarely update it anymore. In my last entry, I wrote about my dad in the hospital but not about his death yet. I've had it for so long that I feel it would be a waste to abandon or erase it.
- R.C.M.P. Uniforms: My favourite sexy uniform. Once, I was at the library and this Mountie walked past me. My knees almost buckled from the mere sight of him! I tried to rationalize my feelings for this man, having come out as a lesbian and all, but all I can say is that it excited me. Still does.
- Black Boots: I love wearing them! I have only a couple of high heeled ones that I wear on occasion, just because I can't stand to wear high heels for even half a day. If I'm being driven around then I'll wear them, but when you travel by public transit regularly, you need flat and comfy foot-ware. Regardless, I love seeing them, admiring them and wearing them.
- Film and Television: Just plug me into one and I'll be fine. Although, I've unplugged mine since last January and waste more energy on my laptop, which is almost a year old! It inspired me to want to be an actor in the first place, has been my babysitter, my teacher, my lover, my best friend and historian. I watch a few tv shows on the internet and watch whole movies via YouTube. I watched a lot of tv while in my dad's room, watching mostly "Ellen" and "Oprah", even the news and a few other shows.
- Vegan/Vegetarian Cooking: I've been vegan since 1995 and I don't plan on eating meat, dairy or eggs and other animal by-products for a long time. I was coughing annoyingly so, so I went to the doctor about it. He took an X-ray and determined that, well, I didn't have cancer or Tuberculosis, so I was to cut out Pork, Dairy, Eggs, Seafood and Peanut Butter. After a few days, along with some pills to take daily, I went back to my doctor with the idea of being vegan. He revealed that he himself was also vegan, then suggested some books to read on it and that I should take up swimming. I still haven't done that yet, but we'll see. I've found more vegans here in Winnipeg than anywhere in Vancouver, so I'm grateful for this lump of soil.
- I also love to watch "Law & Order: SVU" on tuesday nights: I haven't watched it in a long time, only because it doesn't do it for me anymore. I can't believe it's still on tv! I've taped some episodes, but since my VCR is busted, I haven't watched them on it anyway. There are some scenes that do flash through my memory at certain moments of every waking day. I'd like to rent a season one day. I'm sure I could.
