Another curiosity strikes me.

What do you guys like to do for FUN?

I love riding horses-have been taking lessons and it is so exciting and a ton of fun! I LOVE to canter- working my way up to the galloping full speed down the pasture, and will one day have my own.

I write music and play guitar...taking lessons so I can learn to improvise and do a little soloing....nothing like Jimmy Page or Eric Clapton though! :wink:

I love going to the shooting range. I'm a pretty good shot, and we shoot all caliber handguns. Sometimes we go to tournaments where you shoot in 'life-like' situations (someone is attacking you or has a hostage, ect.). Shooting, when done with respect with safety, is a BLAST! :rofl:

I also, though I don't get to do it often, LOVE archery!

ANyways, tell me what you guys like to do for fun!

Dr. Leeds : "What do you do to relax?"
Doug : "Well, play golf."
Dr. Leeds : "Ah, it's a great game. How often do you get out?"
Doug : "Well, let's see, uh, never. Yeah, never. I'm gonna have to cut back though. That's really gonna hurt."

I play, I used to. No time for it now.

Um...I used to shoot bo, but I dropped out my archery league. Not enough time.

I used to race motorcycles, but ran short on both time and money.

Let's see...rappelling, mountain biking, camping....nope, not any more no time. Volleyball, nope knees are too bad. Same for softball.

I read.

Hey! I race bmx. I still manage to do that. Though if I can't scrape together enough money to finish my new bike, I might have to drop that too.

I think I'm in a rut.

I guess I come here for fun.

Man, I suck.

I guess that I moderate sf sites as a hobby. :lol:

I read, and I listen to music and watch movies. My latest interests are Japanese Samurai films, and books and TV programs about American colonial times. I read a lot of mysteries and sf. I spend most of my "free" time choreographing for and developing the fitness and dance classes that I teach, working at home part of being self-employed.

I collect Netsuke.

I crochet, but haven't for a while, so must start up again. Especially considering that about a 6th of this room is full of crochet yarn.

I'm a lot like Q... in that I have no time to do anything anymore. I used to do some hiking, climbing, rock climbing, simple mountain biking, snow skiing, archery, a little shooting and stuff like that. However, my bow was stolen, my skis as well, the guys I climbed with have moved to other states and I have no equipment (was stolen), my hiking stuff I haven't done for a long time (Can you say 'stolen'? I knew you could!). I still have a mountain bike, but it's only pretty much a street bike, as my off-roading bike with the full suspension and such got stolen. *sigh* :cry: Most of the stuff was stolen at the same time, though the bike was just last year. *shrugs* Such is life.

When I have time, now, I come on this site and will post a bit. Every once in awhile, I'll post a poem or three as well. If I ever get another job, I should finally be able to actually do things regularly again....

I read, write, compute (like now), watch tons of movies (but never TV), listen to music, and play games.

Very sedentary activities, I admit, but hey, I'll never fall off a cliff or break my leg doing them. :)

NEWS FLASH: "Woman falls to her death while playing Medieval Total War: II" (film at 11)

I enjoy making jewelry, floral arranging, growing herbs in containers in the warmer months, and other things when time allows, listening to music, reading, caring for my pets, posting in forums, watching movies, hanging out with Neuro online etc.
