Hi! for the ask: 55, 60, 90 👻
55: what’s the most dramatic thing you’ve ever done to prove a point?
I cannot think of a specific example, I have done so many dramatic things to prove a point. I am an older sister. I have a graduate degree. I have done so many dramatic things to prove so many various points.
60: do you like poetry? what are some of your faves?
I actually don’t love poetry. I do have Rilke’s Book of Hours and I enjoyed that, but in general, I’m not very well versed (ha) in poetry and it’s not really my go-to reading material.
90: talk about your one of you favorite cities.
ok look. montreal is fantastic. here are excellent things about montreal:
- it’s actually affordable to live in the actual urban center, without roommates, which is fucking awesome
- parks. both in they are pretty and nice and also in that you can drink alcohol in them as long as you ‘have food’
- the ‘mountain’. okay it’s not really a mountain but it’s a large hill and it is extremely nice to run on in, all seasons
- even winter, actually, it’s like cold and by march #overit, but there’s still a lot of things to do in winter and it’s really pretty, initially
- under normal circumstances, great bar/cafe/music/film scene. also lots of independent bookstores
- the river is fine, I guess (it’s not the ocean, but it is kind of pretty, so ok)
- people are very nice in general, even if you are a disaster. (i have been a disaster so many times and have only ever gotten really kind customer/civil services people helping me) there’s a great actual community feel in neighborhoods too
- the metro is QUIET. rubber tires on trains = not suffering hearing damage because of commute (**cough** unlike a couple other cities I know) (it’s been one hundred years, update the fucking trains)
- they apparently care (again, unlike several other nearby cities) if cyclists die, their track record is not perfect (and honestly, mostly because the drivers here are the worst I’ve ever seen) but there are closed and covered full bike lanes that will take you pretty much anywhere and it’s the safest I’ve ever felt cycling in an urban environment
(*obviously I am not covering the issues, but this is a positivity question and I’m not going to go into every social issue)
