"What hooks me is filling the bathtub at bedtime and leaving the lukewarm water to cool until morning, so that it's waiting to greet me as I plunge in with happiness in my heart and Antonín Dvořák blasting through the speakers." -- Bif Naked
We hear you, Bif. This fish is a big fan of spending extended periods of time submersed. We've got a few other things in common, too. Bif is an ardent supporter of independent Canadian media, and had this to say about The Tyee's journalism:
"I'm completely stimulated by The Tyee's thought-provoking work. It's like an intellectual brain-massage. I love the honesty and, sometimes, unconventionality of their genius writers and contributors. From them I learn so much."
Bif is such a fan that she has become a Tyee Builder. If you'd like to join her and help make sure The Tyee's independent voice is heard loud and clear, just click on the yellow button below.
