This is my bestie, Pagz (yes, he has Star Wars sheets - this is because he is awesome).

Pagz is single, and I wanted to show him off before someone else snaps him up. 

He’s in his early 30s and lives in Western Canada and is hoping to meet a woman who shares some of his interests and is between 25-38ish

Interesting facts:

  • green is his favourite colour
  • he has seriously awesome tattoos! (his sleeve incorporates Tron, Star Wars, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Green Lantern, G.I Joe and loads more
  • he likes cats, and would like to have one someday
  • he loves Star Wars
  • he is funny - whenever we hang out, I suffer from cheek ache from laughing
  • he is a member of the BC Ghostbusters and built himself a movie-quality proton pack (which is signed by Dan Aykroyd)
  • he is a wicked artist.  Seriously, check out his art
  • he likes Halloween - and his costumes are awesome
  • he dances - swing dances.  He’s the kind of guy that will twirl you around and make you feel like you’re the only girl on the planet
  • like video games? he does (but not so much that it’s all he does)
  • he’s a hopeless romantic
  • he is family-oriented, and would like to have kids someday
  • he is a snuggler
  • I heard Margot Kidder tell him he looked a little like “Danny (Dan) Aykroyd” at a comic convention
  • every week he hosts a movie night at his awesome condo
  • comfort foods are his specialty (try his Baked Mac & Cheese - it has BACON)
  • he’s fun to cook with!
  • he has a Star Trek TNG podcast AND we’re working on our Star Wars podcast via Skype
  • he throws a James Bond-themed New Years party every year
  • he has a good relationship with his mom - close but not too close
  • he is very open-minded, kind, and patient
  • he likes romantic movies (and he loves Valentine’s Day)
  • he thumb-wrestled Richard Hatch
  • his toy collection is amazing - especially if you dig sci-fi (or Muppets!)

(just in case you’re wondering why I haven’t dated Pagz, I had met my fella almost a year before we met)

There’s LOADS more to tell, but I would like to leave a little to the imagination.  You can contact Pagz through his Tumblr here

Nermal was in need of dental surgery desperately, and now we need help raising the remaining funds! 

In 2007, Nermal was rescued from a home with 50+ indoor cats that were all interbreeding.  Through the rescue that I volunteered for, Nermal came to live with me as a foster kitty - I fell in love and she adopted me.

Our family moved from Alberta to British Columbia, where I took up volunteering for a new rescue.  This year, when Nermal started showing signs of dental disease, they kindly offered to take Nermal on so we could get a “rescue rate” at our local, most trusted veterinarian.  The discount was over $600, which was absolutely amazing… but we still have over $1100 left to pay.  The original bill would have been over $1700, so thankfully we don’t have to raise quite as much now.

Due to a genetic disorder (hip dysplasia), I have been off of work for nearly a year.  In 16 days, I will go in for my second major surgery to help me walk properly again.  I have to travel to a different city because no orthopedic surgeons on Vancouver Island even perform the surgeries I need (I am kind of a unique case).  My husband, thankfully, is employed, but with two kids, we barely make ends meet on his salary.  Nermal is a wonderful cat, who has seen well over 30 foster cats and kittens come through our home (before they were able to be adopted).  She is the best cat a family could ask for.

I hate to ask, but we really really need help.  You can visit our online fundraising page here:
