Default Hobbies: Got Some?

Hi, I was musing on this subject and was wondering what you people do. I build Shaker style furniture, and custom cabinetry, play chess, hunt and do a little fishing. I also love cooking.

In fact I have a recipe for crab lovers: Use fresh crab only, canned is terrible. Okay here it is. 8 oz cream cheese, 8 oz crab, 1 teaspoon of minced onions, a healthily dash of garlic powder, a little horse radish to liven it up. Mix these together and spread on a French roll, cover liberally with sharp cheddar cheese, a dash of paprika on top. Then place in a broiler till the cheese is slightly crispy. Mmm Mmm good.

On hunting my favorite rifle is a 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mouser, perfect for the terrain and the little deer that live here. I plink with a 9mm Luger that my grampa brought back from WW2. Finicky with the ammo but a natural pointer. I can hit a quarter at thirty yards on a consistant basis. I hand load my own ammo so I control the results.

On chess I wish that shrapnel would put chess game (with a timer) in the arcade. Heh, I'm rated as a strong B player.
Hint, hint.

Well thats enough typing for now.

PS. Boil the crabs for 15 minutes first.

Playing computer games is my main hobby. When I need a break from the computer, I have a large collection of board and card games, and I also do crossword puzzles.

I used to read a lot more than I do now, mostly SF&F, but I have trouble concentrating on lengthy text now.

Who are your favorite authors?

Mine are,
History: Flavius Josephus
Comedy: Terry Pratchett
Scifi: David Drake, John Ringo, and too many more to mention.
Fantasy: L E Moseditt
Wacky Science: Graham Hancock

I took a speed reading course when I was a child and it took.
Reading is the best skill of all. With it you can learn anything else.

I'm not sure I could name a favorite author now, but back when I could, I might say Isaac Asimov for SF, and Piers Anthony for fantasy. (I used to have a really bad Xanth habit.) For both, I prefer their older works more than their late works.

Do you remember the Lensman series? That was ground breaking for its time.

I only read that within the last decade; I have the Science Fiction Book Club two-volume collection, and the licensed GURPS worldbook.

I have too many SFBC editions of classic SF that I've never gotten around to reading.

Gurps, haven't heard of that for awhile. I had the honor of creating a race using that system for a COTI game. http://www.contact-conference.com/index.html They were critters that eat radio waves that came to earth to tell us to not be so loud.

Pen and paper RPG's is my main hobby I'd say. I've played plenty more RPG than computer games in my life.

Currently running an Exalted campaign with eight players. They are threatening to become nine! *shudder*
The campaign is running surprisingly smooth regardless of their numbers.

I also tend to have RPG side projects and ideas that I never start or that runs out of fuel after a few sessions.

Richard and I have too many hobbies! Models, web projects, gaming, crafting (me only)....gee if there were only more hours in a day. Oh and we just got on facebook after much prodding....something tells me this was not a good thing for our time management, lol.

Our gaming though is pretty extensive. We have a good collection of board games (everything from party games to in depth strategy games with a million pieces), a large collection of console systems and games (colecovision and atari on up to the wii), handheld games and literally hundreds of computer games.

I received your facebook invitations the other day, but I haven't been there for ages and I have lost my password, so you will likely never be accepted as my facebook friends

I'll stick to this forum. It's quite good you know
