“What other than slots, do you do on your spare time??” asks Mari L.
First off, spare time..What’s that?? Haha. Although I do work my butt off for my channel, I do allow myself time to enjoy the things that I love.
Travel. I love to travel the world. I’ve so far lived in Malta, Paris, Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles (more on that in my blog in 3 weeks!) and I’ve visited all over Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti. Unfortunately (or fortunately) these days I always include casino trips in those, so they become work trips. But NOT when I went to Hawaii for my 10th Wedding Anniversary! There are no casinos in Hawaii don’t ya know ;)
Entertaining. I LOVE to entertain friends and family. Any excuse to have a party, and I will host it. And with each party, I try to outdo my last one. At Marco’s recent Birthday party I found a bartender on Craigslist and hired a company to make tacos on the deck and we even had a drag queen (Cake Moss!) come and perform. For the Oscars I rented a large screen and projector complete with a popcorn machine to make the experience more fun. At one of my parties, just show up and enjoy!
Family. Marco and I are the only family we each have in the city. My family is all in Canada and his are spread between Indiana and Central America. So whenever we get a chance to see our families, we make the most of it. For the second year in a row, we have invited my parents to stay with us for a month in LA (complete with a trip to Vegas of course!).
Sports. I like to watch Baseball as it was the sport I played growing up. Blue Jays are my team. Aside from baseball, I enjoy participating in the end of year finals of other sports like Super Bowl Sunday. I recently went to watch the Toronto Raptors play in LA in fact!
Home. If it’s just me at home for the weekend, I like to get a bit dirty with some handyman work or yard work. I’ve only electrocuted myself twice (I swore I turned off the electricity beforehand lol). As you may have heard, I recently fixed our hot water tank by diagnosing the problem using YouTube videos.
Birds. We have a hummingbird feeder with resident bird, Buddy, who sits atop the feeder to fend off other birds from getting any nectar. He’s a jerk, but I love him, haha. After the death of our cat a couple years ago, he’s the best thing since. We travel too much for a real pet and so we have a fake cat too ;)
Outside of all that, Marco and I like to make random date nights. Our next one is a metro date. We’ve never used the subway metro lines in LA before, so we’re going to explore the stops and find some cool places to visit! And for my Birthday, he’s planned an outing to see the show WICKED, which I haven’t seen before! I’m always open to finding more places to see and visit, so let me know where else to go by commenting on my blog post on Facebook!
To find out more about Marco and I and how we met, check it out next week!
