Location Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I am a happily married father of two who has recently raised stakes and moved out of Toronto to the nearby city of Oshawa. During the day I am a mild-mannered desk jockey working as a computer programmer. At night, and in my spare time, (Ha! Spare time...) I am a rogue musician involved in various endeavours as the spirit moves me. I enjoy camping and cooking, and try to do as much as possible of both while the weather is nice. Recently, I have started to experiment with cooking some fairly ambitious recipes, and I am working to expand my repertoire of tasty dishes I can whip up from memory. I am also a rabid, hopeless, Toronto Maple Leafs hockey fan. I've been thinking of getting a tattoo on my arm that reads - "Toronto Maple Leafs - there's always next year." *sigh*
Interests Cooking, hockey, reading, playing music, single-malt scotch whisky, more hockey, camping, Scrabble, wierd beer, going "Squeedookle" when I really should be going "Rutuut", and of course - Hockey

Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

Whittling with soap - because the wood kept getting stuck in my teeth.
