Where do you work?

Traders Furniture in Downtown Drumheller

What do you like most about your job?
I like the ghosts in the building. I like Marcus the best. He bangs the back door and he moves things. There’s something upstairs that’s moved most of the days but i put it back and now he leaves it alone. And talking to the Drumheller Mail reporter today.

If you didn’t do what you do for a living, what would you be doing?
In a perfect world planting flowers – not pushing up the daisies, but planting them.

Who is your hero?
I don’t have a hero.

Last series on Netflix you’ve been binge watching?
I don’t watch Netflix. It’s not on Netflix, but ‘90 Day Fiance’ is a don’t miss. They bring someone from another country to get married in 90 days and it usually doesn’t work out. It’s so dumb, but it’s funny. It’s a trainwreck.

It’s Sunday morning. What are you having for breakfast?
Coffee.

What’s your weirdest habit?
Probably getting up at the crack of stupid, like 4:30 a.m. That’s a bad habit.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
Weird friends. They make life interesting.

Who’s your weirdest friend?
Barb Coney.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
I already have sarcasm, that’s a superpower. If Icould have besides sarcasm it would be quick wit.

If we’re buying dinner, you’re having…
Ossie Sheddy’s World Famous Sauerkraut Stew!

What are your words to live by?
That’s a tough one. Probably a little less talk and a little more production. Or “honest guys, they’re lilies.”

Who Are You?...
CODY JOHNSTON

Meat Department Manager, Freson Bros. Drumheller

What do you like most about your job?
Probably dealing with people – it’s just a satisfaction knowing someone leaves happy with something they’ve picked or maybe if someone is not so happy to begin with, maybe if they’re not satisfied, to have them leave better and with a smile on their face. I like how busy it is and how there is never a shortage of things to do.

If you didn’t do what you do for a living, what would you be doing?
Something sports related. When I was younger I wanted to be a sports broadcaster.

Favourite sports?
Hockey and football are my two top ones. If I’ve got time off or time to kill I’m watching a hockey or football game. My hockey team is the Colorado Avalanche. I grew up in Swift Current and Joe Sakic played his junior hockey there so he was around town and talked about. The Avalanche were a new team and I liked their jerseys, so from there I just stuck with them. For football, this might not be popular, but the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Who is your hero?
I guess going back to hockey, Jonathan Toews, because I see him as a leader and a selfless guy. I find he’s kind of underrated because he’s not flashy, but he’s just a solid, hardworking guy who I try to emulate myself after. He leads by example and does the right thing all the time.

Last series on Netflix you’ve been binge watching?
Right now I’m watching ‘Shameless.’ It’s about a dysfunctional family and there’s a lot going on. It almost seems unrealistic but it’s just good humour and takes your mind off of real life and gets me away from thinking about work.

It’s Sunday morning. What are you having for breakfast?
I’m going to have the old bacon and eggs and if I’m feeling adventurous I whip up some french toast. Breakfast is definitely my favourite meal of the day.

If you could go see one concert, who would you see?
Probably right now, I’m a country music fan, I really like Luke Combs. But I would have liked to have seen the Tragically Hip before that was over.

What’s your weirdest habit?
I’m sure I’ve got many… I’m really the most weird about using q-tips – if I have a shower I have to use
q-tips.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
I don’t know if it’d be a guilty pleasure but I like those kombuchas. I get a lot of flak from coworkers but I just really enjoy those. I like to think I notice a difference.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
I’d probably travel back in time. I’d probably just go back forty years to when my grandpa was alive and get to spend some time with him on the farm.

If we’re buying dinner, you’re having…
We’re having a ribeye steak, baked potatoes with all the fixings, some caesar salad, and we’re going to have a little garlic toast with that.

What are your words to live by?
I guess one of the things, a lot of people ask me here ‘how’s it going,’ and one thing I’ll say is ‘living the dream.’ It’s more about the mentality or your mindset. If I can tell myself that living the dream is that everything is awesome, then keeping that positive mindset is the first step to having a good time or good attitude. One of the things I say to coworkers or friends is ‘it can always be worse.’ If you’re ever having a hard time, think about it for a second and realize it can always be a lot worse, no matter what you’re going through.

Title: Owner of CitiZen Yoga

What do you like most about your job?
Besides everything, I guess interacting with people and either introducing them to yoga or helping them to further their yoga practice. It’s important that we move, and as we age we tend to slow down. I’m really trying to encourage people of all ages to stay active and stay moving for a healthier. I thought I just need to get to the older generation because I see how crippling it is. I want everyone to stand tall.

If you didn’t do what you do for a living, what would you be doing?
This is it, I’m hitting it.

Who is your hero?
Probably my grandma. I always looked up to her and she always taught me how to be independent.

Last series on Netflix you've been binge watching?
I don’t even want to admit this, but last night my husband put on Netflix and we watched Bob Ross for hours. We always watch it in bed on Youtube.

It’s Sunday morning. What are you having for breakfast?
Probably tater tots, sausages, and eggs. And coffee.

If you could go see one concert, who would you see?
Celine Dion. I’m like the most boring person in the world. I’ve already seen Britney, I’ve already seen Pink and those would be high up on the list too.

What’s your weirdest habit?
I always have to lift my feet when going over train tracks when I'm driving. It’s something I used to do as a kid and now I can’t not do it.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
Poutine, any kind of poutine. Also, my husband is an incredible cook so pretty much anything he makes is my guilty pleasure.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
It would honestly have to be something like taking pain away from people. I feel guilty when people don’t feel good. I don’t know what i did in my last life to feel that way, but I always have to try to take away the hurt away from others. I always have to remember you don’t have to do that.

If we’re buying dinner, you’re having…
I am probably having honestly a poutine, but other than that steak and lobster are good go-tos.

What are your words to live by?
Live, laugh, love. They just resonate with me. I guess that’s how I see my life – live it to the fullest, laugh often, love always.
