A notable moment on Twitter? Having no less than five friends unfollow me citing “too many hockey tweets” as the reason, and saying they’ll be back after the playoffs.
Your best Tweet: Most recently: “BALLS OF STEEL. BALLS OF STEEL. Goal by Salo #Canucks”. I also tweeted something to a friend about how much better Vancouver was than Toronto, which, strangely, was retweeted by a Toronto Tourism twitter account.
What did you want to be growing up? A grown up. Also “a fixer” – I fixed our stereo once and I started breaking things just to see how I could fix them.
If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be? Trevor Linden, feel so blessed to have seen that man play hockey.
Your claim to fame: Making mixtapes as supplementary presents. Fun way to share some music with your friends and actually requires putting some thought into it.
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? Not exactly hidden, but outside the concourse by Canada Place: great place to relax on a summer dawn/dusk and just soak in the waterfront. Unless there’s a cruise ship in port, then you can’t see anything.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? Deadpool (most people won’t know of him, but Ryan Reynolds is playing him in an upcoming movie): accelerated healing, incredible fighting ability and a bit of a smart-aleck. Also the only comic book hero who is self-aware (he knows he’s inside of a comic).
If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why? I’d be carrot, I suppose. Friend’s reasoning is because I’m grounded, strong and traditionally have spiky hair.
Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition? Laura Wong – @lothwe. Crazy Canucks fan, skilled designer and fellow Sauderite. Sometimes a bit of a dork, like me.
