I suppose that if someone were to make a slick montage of my life there would be a few essentials that they couldn't miss. There would be quick cuts of me in dusty foreign bus stops, playing guitar and singing, drinking port, playing hockey, laughing hysterically at off-colour stand up, walking introspectively, petting dogs, buying shoes, steaming vegetables, reading books, browsing records. Sometimes friends would be in this, sometimes family, sometimes just myself. The sleeping and working bits wouldn't make the final cut, as much as I really like those activities. As a side note, I can't believe I'm referencing film when I see about two a year.
