Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

Snagged from [personal profile] opaqueplanet (my snuggle-pumpkin), who associates me with:

chocolate caramel pot de creme

I'm a pastry cook. Right now, I'm a student in the pastry arts program at the Culinary Institute of Canada. I used to work at a restaurant in Saskatoon called Alexander's. I had applied for a job as an "assistant baker" (I have previous bakery experience), and the job turned out to be making desserts. I've been baking since I was little, so it seemed like an OK way to make money while I was in school (I used to be a physics major). Pretty soon, I got REALLY into it. I found an awesome dessert cookbook and started making some of the recipes as specials at work. One afternoon, Cass and I went to Alexander's for something to eat, and we shared one of my dessert specials (the chocolate caramel pot de creme). Let's just say, Cass REALLY enjoyed it. I shall not go into details.

chest hair

I'm a hairy mofo. I remember being in gym class from grades 8 to 10 and thinking "GAH! why don't I have any hair on my legs? It looks like I shave for cryin' out loud!" That changed pretty damn quickly. By the time I got to university, I had what my friends referred to as "the sweater", as in "Hey Buck! It's 30 degrees out! Take off the sweater!" Anyways, I hated it for the longest time. I shaved (ITCHY), waxed (OW!), NAIRed (not so bad, but it still got itchy after a while), and eventually settled on trimming. It's become thicker since then, with a fair amount migrating from my head to my back in recent years, but I don't mind so much anymore. It's fuzzy and warm in the winter, and I can trim it down in the summer.

battlestar galactica

When I first heard that someone was re-making Battlestar Galactica, I was NOT interested. From what I'd seen of the original, I was expecting cheap 70s-style sci-fi with bad actors. I finally watched the mini-series at a friend's house and LOVED it. When we first started dating, Cass and I would usually watch an episode or two when she came over. We would then 'discuss' the episode (this is a euphemism). We're going to miss the show when it's over... But we'll still 'discuss' it anyways. ;-)

electric six

Oh man... when Cass and I used to volunteer at the Pride Centre on campus (where we met - ironic, yes?), she showed me this video by Electric Six. We started dating soon after, and decided it should be *our song* (we're weird, ok? shut up.) Two months later, we drove to Edmonton to see Electric Six play at a bar. We stayed at a hostel! Anyways, Electric Six rules!

stripping at drag shows

This is pretty much how Cass and I started to hang out. I had been volunteering at the Pride Centre (LGBTA Centre at that time) for a couple of years, and she started to volunteer also. Apparently, she was all "Ooh! He's dreamy! Too bad he's gay and I have a boyfriend!", and I thought she was hells of cute. Anyways... Every year, the Pride centre puts on a couple of drag shows at Louis' (the campus bar). For each drag show, the centre volunteers usually do a number as well. In my first year, I was 'Riff-Raff' in the Rocky Horror Picture Show's 'Time Warp'. For this year, we were doing "You Can Leave Your Hat On" by Tom Jones, as performed at the end of "The Full Monty." Obviously, we didn't get COMPLETELY naked, but our underpants spelled out L G B T A ! I think I was the T, and Cass was the !. Best "how did you guys meet?" story EVER.
