I've been inspired by the barbeque thread. Please share hobbies (we already know the fishkeeping one), no matter how wacky they may be. We don't care if you crochet or sky-dive, read books or write them... we're just interested in knowing what you like to do. Just keep it family-friendly. Other than fishkeeping: 1) I enjoy obsessing about characters in books I read (Dr. Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park, Edward Cullen from Twilight, Vishous from the Black Dagger Brotherhood books.) I love to read in general, but usually nothing heavy. 2) Shopping on ebay and amazon is fun, but shopping at the store is not. 3) Going to the public library with my little boy. I have a lot of respect for the institution, and it is exciting for me to share my love for it with him, hopefully teaching him to love it too. 4) I enjoy playing RPGs online, but with children and a full-time job, this is not something I really get to do much anymore. I thought the Sims were great fun! 5) A newer hobby is homework and learning stuff with my little boy. Tomorrow I think we're going to the library to pick up a Magic Tree House book. I am not familiar with them, but I wanted to read chapter books to him, and Harry Potter is a little sophosticated for him. An online search suggested these Magic Tree House books as a good place to start. share yours if you would like.
