I actually have never made it the MX park in Calgary. I'm one of those dorks that loves Edmonton and hates Calgary. I try to stay out of that city as much as possible. Hope your weekend is going great. Is that your finance in your picture? If so, you are a lucky man. Hope things got patched up after the argument... later, Chris.
Well, I'm Mark, 28, from Canada. I'm engaged to a wonderful woman who is pretty supportive no matter what kind of foolishness I say or trouble I get in to. I've been a paramedic for 7 years, very rewarding career. I guess if you're wondering why I'm here, just to make myself a better person for myself and those I care about, do something constructive with my free time, get a different perspective on life as I feel I'm in a comfortable rut.
I was born and raised in Charlo NB. After I graduated high school I went to take a computer course. After a year I decided I couldn't sit in an office all day. Came back home, upgraded some high school courses, went to take my Paramedic course. I was lucky enough to move back home, get a job as a Paramedic, find a great girl, get involved in the local volunteer fire dept. Last November I was made shift supervisor at work....
Getting married Aug 7 '09, looking forward to getting out of this apartment into a nice house with a decent sized garage. Then my future wife and I will start a family. Looking to eventually get a University degree in Emergency Service Management and move up the ladder at work.
I wanted to do something more constructive with my time then play video games etc. I heard about this on the Jason Ellis show, it can only be a positive experience right?
You are offered your dream job. What job is it?:
Running a race team. Getting to organize sponsors and public events. Making peoples dreams come true by setting them up with a way to reach their goals. Just getting to attend races and be a part of something competitive while helping others and the community around me.
My favorite wild animal is:
Why (describe as much as possible):
A shark is the top of the food chain, the combination of speed, power and grace is pretty amazing to me. There's something awe inspiring when you see a shark fin break through the top of the water
My favorite domestic animal is (if you choose dog be specific with breed etc):
A Clydesdale is a work horse, they've been used for ages by farmers to do heavy hauling. They are a very reliable animal.
A famous Chef will prepare anything you want. What do you order:
Whatever he recommends.
I'm pretty limited as far as food knowledge goes, I guess I'd want to try something different. And well, if he's world famous he must have something up his sleeve.
Five people either dead or alive you would have at your fantasy dinner party::
I really have to think about this...
If a pilot would fly you anywhere you want, you would go to:
Calgary to visit my sister & do some snowboarding out in Banff.
My perfect slice of pizza is:
Double cheese and mushroom.
You are at a bar. You order this drink:

If a genie could grant you three wishes they would be (separate by commas):
an alternative fuel source better then gasoline, security, I'd give the last wish to my fiance.
You are going on a long road trip and you can only bring three CD's. Which ones do you bring
(separate by commas):
Death Magnetic - Metallica (for the intense situations), Magical Mystery Tour - The Beatles, Live At The Lower Deck - Signal Hill (had a lot of great times with my friends listening to them live)
If I could do anything for my neighborhood today, it would be:
Bring in some industry to fill in the papermill that just shut down. A boost in the local economy would boost a lot of people around here's moral. Also more money floating around means more people floating around, means more fun to be had.
A sunset I remember:
Sun setting, full moon rising over the stage at the AC/DC concert
Any character I could be from a movie, TV show or book would be:
John Locke from Lost.
John Lock is a pure believer, he doesn't question what life throws at him, he only knows that whatever happens, happens for a reason.
