dah!  hawky!  why didn't you tell me you were into tatting and bobbin lace!  eeekers!   and quilting too?  wow!  we have more in common that even i thought!  

i knit, i crochet, i sew - occasionally i quilt - and i make clothes all the time.  i also am currently illustrating a children's book and i'm doing lots of computer art... also not really like work at all!  i get paid to play!

hawky, i bet those simulators are FUN!

I need to do some more handiwork! I've sewed,  crocheted, knitted, needlepoint, and I've even tried Hardanger, which is a really cool Norwegian kind of tatting. Is quilling the things you do with the little strips of paper that you coil up?

Computers:  writing games, surfing the net, developing other software
Genealogy (I've traced back several hundreds of years)
Books (mostly sci-fi or historical novels)
music (I have over a gig of Frank Delima!)
Nature:  hiking, camping, etc

(I mean this very light heartly)  Gee, go figure... a MOrmon who's been able to trace his ancestory! ::)  Whoa, is that a stretch or what?  Lemme guess, did you happen to use the nation's best resource for genealogical research, ie the library there in Salt Lake City?  DUH! ;D :D ;)

LOL.  Bigger doesn't always mean better :D  I posted my findings to http://www.familysearch.org (the online portal to the Ancestral File in SLC), but I didn't rely on other posts unless they listed primary sources.  The Ancestral File is the largest genealogical database in the world, but I don't take all its records as gospel truth.

Once you hit a prominant person in society (80% of all Americans of European blood are descended from Charlemagne), it's too easy to go back to the 1400s.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I love to cook!  If I wasn't a programmer, I would be a gourmet.

Oh man, I have a ton, but most of the time I'd have to say PC RPG games with my wife and kids.  Other than that, I used to spend 90% of my free time around cars, car audio.... not anymore though... getting married kind of gets rid of all that, heheh! when I got married, I had 4 cars, now, just two family cars LOL!

Not that long ago, Computers and Case modding/Overclocking was my thing.  Well, that's done too.  New hobby?  I'd have to say this site and what it's all about is my hobby now outside of computer games.
Is the art of life, living somewhere in between?

Reading is a big one. I draw and write fiction occasionally, but I have to be in a very specific mood for that. I make my own jewelry, which I've sold at craft shows on occasion, but it's mostly just to keep me occupied. Making fun of myself and everyone else... that's always time consuming.

I'm totally into reading and writing, so I guess my biggest hobby is just collecting stories...from all walks of life, lol. I also adore coin collecting *even though my cousin has threatened to shoot me if I keep watching that Coin Vault show until the wee hours of the morning! ;D) I also love to collect interesting and witty friends! Anything to make me forget that I have no real life, te he! :)

I love to read hands down, swimming, playing Volley ball, listening to music, singing, doing activities with my son,  and going to plays.  :)
I smile because I have no idea of what's going on.
