Hobbies?

    What do you guys do to get away from the daily grind?

    I know it's almost a cliche as a hobby, but I love, love, LOVE to play golf. I can't afford to be really outstanding at it, but just concentrating on golf skills totally helps me take a trip away from work (I love to read, too, but it's hard to do it without reading as a critical writer trying to learn something about the craft).

    I hit butterflies with a stick.

    I used to clobber lightning bugs, too, but my vision isn't the same.

    I drink beer and hit on college boys.


    Oh, and I do a LOT of yoga and read bad science fiction/fantasy novels and/or well-written nonfiction on Tudor England.

    The life of every party, I'm sure. ;)

    Me? I play cards and knock two out a night.

    Exercise, tattoos, online poker, writing (I don't write at work anymore), reading non-fiction, complaining about having nothing to do, and occasionally I'll have a drink or two.

    I totally am. College boys don't meet that many girls who can chug beer and discuss the finer merits of R.A. Salvatore's latest work. I'm a rare breed.  ;)

    Tattoos? Interesting.

    Meaning you draw tattoos or you get tattoos as a hobby? If you draw them, I wanna see. In another life, I'd like to do that.

    I watch a lot of the one-hour crime shows: Law & Order, Without a Trace, The Closer.

    And y'all can make fun of me if you want, but I crochet baby blankets for Project Linus. Picked it up in grad school when I joined a group called Stitch & Bitch, and it's a nice way to do something that's not sports related.

    Now all I need is a cat and I can become That Old Creepy Woman.

    Nothing wrong with that, Cadet.

    I bike, try to get back to my family when I get enough days off to justify a trip and hang out with friends. I would love to pick up my R/C car hobby that I did through junior high and high schools, but nights and weekends make car preparation and racing a bit difficult.
