1. Theology is both my Hobby and my Zeal. Nothing gets better than learner more and more about God. I became enraptured after reading Augustine's City of God.

2. Sports, Basketball and Baseball.

3. Music, collecting and listening to classical music.

4. Into natural sceneries. A beach, mountain, hillside strikes me dead everytime.

5. I am into Airlines. I just like watching jets. My favorite is the 737 very spacious, and cute eventhough it is small.

Andrew, you must live in a 4 story warehouse to facilitate your collecting dysfunction. :p

My hobby is reading of course. :book2:

My second hobby is researching and tracking down the best beers in the world. :detective: It's sort of a disappointing hobby because as soon as I find that rare brew.... I drink it.... and then it's gone. :um:

My dream is to go to the St. Sixtus Abbey in Belgium for one bottle of their beer.

I didn't even mention the fact that I have saved every piece of personal correspondence I have received (excluding emails) since the second grade or so.

It may be a disorder but our house is not so disordered as you might think. ;)

When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes. -- Erasmus

I didn't mention it specifically but, of course, I collect books.

A man after my own heart! Save the bottles, perhaps? :detective:

My hobby is sleeping.

Not your cup of tea
I always feel like such a pauper when it comes to hobbies;to list them, I mean: there is far too little time to learn and do and wonder at all of the things there are to be learned and done and wondered at. But the list practically begins and ends at reading. I did declare war on the domestic arts once, and tried very hard to subdue crosstitching, knitting, and even purchased some patterns for sewing but could not nerve myself to face THE MACHINE. I turned out a great number of very long scarves, which my husband and then foster child used to tie in knots and beat each other (all in fun of course); but the phase didn't last long (I mean, not the beating each other with scarves: children we babysit enjoy that to this day-- getting any ideas, Rick? but the domestic arts). When I knitted, I was as mentally apt as a cow (or so my husband told me), and when I crosstitched, I was as tractable as a rabid bull. I sometimes think that I enjoy cleaning, but sometimes I think I'm wrong about that. So I read, listen to classical music, watch frightening nature videos about sharks and spiders, drag my husband to parks and rivers, and hope to someday write something worth other people's reading.

Andrew, about how many shot glasses do you have? I'm still just a rookie, I have about 12 or so.
Well, close to 90, I think, but I don't really keep track numerically. I just aim to get souvenirs from places I visit. Do you have a display case? It took me a long time to find what I was looking for in that department.

One of my prize shot glasses disappeared during a move and I haven't seen it since. It was a souvenir from the John Knox House in Edinburgh. :(

That's a shame to lose that one! I don't have a display case yet, and yeah, I basically just try to get one from every new place I visit, too. Some places I get two from, like for instance I have a London one and an England one, and I have a Rhodes College one and a Memphis one. It's a neat thing to collect - even though I can't use any yet!

Computers

Almost made an acrostic.

Augusta

Puritan Board Doctor
I like to try anything, but here are the main ones.

Currently in this order:

-Theology
-Reading: particularly theology books or Sci-fi
-Books, I just love cool old books I wish I had my own library like you see in movies with the persians rugs, leather chairs, with a fireplace and walls and walls of books with one of those sliding ladder thingys. *sigh*
-Sci-fi movies or Pride & Predjudice type movies.
-Don't laugh but for years I was into Sasquatch/Bigfoot, what can I say, I live in Washington state. If you want to know anything about our elusive legend ask me.
-Crafts/cross-stitch/sewing/jewelry making/crotchet/quilting etc.
-video games PC and Xbox.
-woodworking smallish stuff like shelves, tool box, toddler beds.
-Skiing, I loved skiing and haven't been able to go for about 15 years :(
-Cooking/Baking
-Love plants and gardening, roses and hydrangeas particlularly and drying flowers and arranging them.
-Dancing, hubby and I took Salsa lessons once and a one day class on swing it was really fun.
-Karoake but not in public. We have the add on for our Xbox and we have fun with it when people are over.
