    So, what are your hobbies, other than the sex related stuff we talk about every day. :)

    I knit, and write, and I read a whole lot. I also like to make jewelry, and things like that. So...What do you do?

    Also like making things with my hands, just finished doing a complete refit of my frontroom and bathrrom.

    Putting pcs together.
    Id like to learn how to make a boat , just for the fun of it.

    I write a few bits here an there nothing much but when ever it takes my fancy to give it a shot.

    Keeping in shape , press ups, sit ups and pull ups...

    That's awesome Kronnie! Sounds like you have a full life.

    When I knit, I make all sorts of things. Hats, scarves, socks....I love it, really. Creating things really make me happy. RIght now, I'm working on a hat.

    I write novels; I have one published and its sequel ready to be published. I have two others which are completed.

    My number one hobby is travel, although that is governed by budget. I also build model aircraft, I am working my way through the Royal Australian Airforce: from SE5a of World War One to present-day supersonic jets.

    I am a 'dormant' seamstress. Dormant - because my sewing machine is mostly collecting dust right now.

    At the moment, I am into window treatments and upholstery. My next project is to upholster my sofa in the Family Room to reflect the "British Parlour" look that we have recently re-done. Something in red... perhaps with gold stripes... I am still looking for just the right fabric.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that I also sew. I actually work as a seamstress and weaver for my college craft department. That seems so cool though, Rose. Upholstering is something I've never done.

    I am obsessed with anything with 8 cylinders or more, but mostly Corvettes. Why? They're so fucking sexy.

    I like skulls. Skulls are cool.

    Also, music is amazing. Without music, I'd probably die. No, I'm not kidding. <3

    Ah yes, music, I forgot music, my number two love (after sex). I am into French music at the moment, Chanson is much more beautiful than contemporary Anglo music (la musique fran├žaise est plus belle au monde).

    I have so many hobbies, it's hard to list them all.

    I enjoy working on cars. From maintenance to modifications. I don't have the necessary funds to have my dream cars, but I do what I can with what I have.

    I work with computers for a living, but also as a hobby. I run a large website/forums which takes up a lot of my spare time. I'm also into PC gaming, although I spend little time at it these days.

    Photography is another biggie for me. I started about 10 years ago, and got my first SLR in 2001. Currently I still shoot 35mm, although I'm saving up for a Canon 30D with some decent glass. I enjoy all type of photography, from landscapes to macro, from artistic to snapshots. I currently shoot with a Canon EOS Elan 7Ne 35mm SLR and a Canon S1 IS digicam.

    I really enjoy movies, and have over 300 DVDs in my collection. I love my modest home theater, even though I only have a 27" CRT TV (JVC D-Series). We only have a small house and a limited budget, so a big TV is out of the question right now.

    I played trombone and baritone in High School, but I also play drums. I've got a 5-piece Pearl kit that was my Dad's until he died. :( I love to play, but I'm not currently in a band.

    I love camping. No matter what the type. From backpacking to 'roughing it' in a travel trailer. I've done a lot, including staying in various shelters, like Lean-tos and even a quincee on the ice at -30.

    I also love the water. Boating is a favorite way to spend a summer day. I inherited Dad's boat after he died, although it hasn't been back in the water since. I do get out on the water in other boats still, and really enjoy water sports like water skiing, tubing, and swimming.

    In the winter I like to downhill ski. I also like to go snowmobiling, but I don't own my own sled. Too bad the past 3 winters there's hardly been any snow here. :(

    I used to be big into 1/10 scale R/C cars. I'm hoping to pick the hobby back up some day. But I sold all my R/C gear to pay for my first full-scale car.

    I have a hundred more hobbies, but those are probably the biggest. Aside from spending the majority of my time with my son & wife, that is.
