What do you do for fun & hobbies?
So everybody... I was wondering... what sort of fun things do all of you do for hobbies when you're not posting here? How did you get into doing whatever it is you do?
I play Magic: The Gathering with good friends.
I drink a lot.
I brew my own beer and wine.
I love driving.
I like cooking too, but I do it enough when I don't feel like it that it kind of ruins my desire to do it more often.
I'm into knitting. My mom taught me how to knit in my late teens, and the year that the Red Sox won the World Series, I just ended up really latching onto it and have been pretty much unstoppable ever since.
I'm somewhat into digital scrapbooking, but less so since I moved to NY.... mostly lack of time and haven't taken as many photos as I used to.
Drinking and barhopping with friends seems to be a somewhat new hobby that's developed since moving to NY... though I seem to be chilling out about that as of late.
I've really been into Rock Band as of late, and I'm a karaoke fiend but since I moved away from New England, I haven't found any karaoke buddies.
Oh... I suppose "teasing" is also a hobby of mine!
Riding my bike
drawing (a little)
watching boxing/mma fights online (I don't own a tv)
Best of all, hanging with Redpepper :)
playing poker (i also deal poker professionally)
movies (i'm a harsh critic)
TV ( i watch at least 21 different shows)
i've recently been getting more into video games
doing things with my family (homeschooling, reading stories, arts & crafts, puzzles, board games, museums, art galleries, parks, etc.)
going to (or being in) a symphony/opera/ballet
"tabletop" role-playing games (I ran games at major conventions, back when that was big)
collecting books, or just browsing in bookstores
Magic the Gathering (we used to play in the tournaments; R and I love to play it after the kids go to bed)
walking (to keep fit)
bicycling (R and I did a bike trip around NY state as our honeymoon)
reading just about any topic, fiction or nonfiction; I am always reading at least 2 or 3 books at any given time
gardening & taking care of my houseplants (I call them "my babies")
history, anthropology, archeology, linguistics (I have a history degree and another in anthropology/linguistics)
learning & studying languages (I speak over 10 languages, not all of them fluently)
writing fiction and nonfiction
working on my constructed language (or "conlang" for those who know of such things)
movies (as a filmmaker, I have a keen interest in all films)
acting, directing, any aspect of stage/film
doing voice overs for commercials or animation
art (drawing, painting, sculpting, wood, clay, art films, performance art)
Pokemon (games, books, toys, etc.)
watching or discussing all my favorite TV series (Northern Exposure, Lost, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Babylon 5, Farscape, Heroes, etc.)
collecting Micronauts & other old toys
used to be into comic books, but that stuff is the crack!
"Whoa, a new Spider-Man title? I'm already collecting 4 of his titles, but I can add another..."
"A crossover with Batman? OK, I can buy double titles for a couple months..."
Practically needed a 12 step program to get out of that addiction! :rolleyes:
Reading self help books and anything on submissive behavior
Watching true crime shows
Cooking: Italian,Mexican (really just about anything)
Hooping (im just learning but its sooo much fun)
