Well for starters, I've always enjoyed filling in these blurbs, I find them to be an experiment in self exploration. It also helps being slightly narcissistic. Which I can be, because I'm a little bit awesome. My daughter doesn't call me King Daddy Prime for nothing. Well, she does, but that's besides the point. Or is the entire point. Or something. Moving on now.
I define myself as a parent, its a responsibility I take seriously. Its been just the two of us for almost five years now, and I have enjoyed each and every moment of it, even those moments at 2:30 in the morning, when she comes into my room to tell me about her bad dreams. But if I have to hear 'Let it Go" one more time, I will wait until she's in class, having a nice, normal day, and burst in with my off key rendition of 'Livin La Vida Loca'.
When not working or Maddy raising, I generally like to read. I enjoy sports, but only to play, not to watch. I also don't count golf as a sport. Or anything beer leaque. I also write, but I haven't published anything yet. I enjoy the act of writing more than anything else.
Let's see, what else. Well, I don't drink alcohol much. Or pop. I try to stay healthy, but I'm not crazy about it. I exercise, but not at the gym, and I try to avoid fast food whenever possible. (I can't tell Madelyne that fast food is bad for you if I eat it all the time.)
I'm also agnostic, so if you believe evolution is a myth and that climate change is a farce, I don't think we'll get along very well. And if you plan on voting for Stephen Harper in the next election, you really should consider slapping yourself in the face.
I think that's all of it. There's probably more that I could write, about how much I detest consumerism, of how little I wish to travel to Vegas, of my plans for running for town council in a few years, after Madelyne has gotten older. But after reading this far down the page, you could probably use a break. Go ahead, it's ok. You've earned it.
Best of luck to your POF adventures, Shawn,
