Name: Trisha

Age: 33

What neighbourhood are you from? The Junction

What do you 'do'? Will work for food.

How long have you been in Toronto? 4 years

What's your story?

Perpetual malcontent who moves from city to city in search of a cure for boredom.

I've ostensibly run out of destinations (until I relocate to Winnipeg) and am, for now, content in the 'burg of the Junction.

I used to work in a boring, square office job which I hated. Now, I work to pay the bills.

Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

It's not Vancouver.

Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

It's not on the ocean.

You have 24 hours to spend with someone who's never been to Toronto before - what do you do?

Take them to Little India for food and shopping, go see Albino Carreira's house (Clinton N. of Barton) and no doubt, out for drinks in the Junction. I may make them wear furs and/or knee highs to entertain me.

One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:

I'm not actually as mean as I purport to be.
