From this week’s Booking Through Thursday:
Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?
I have a tough time drawing a line between ‘leisure’ and ‘work’ time, since both are twined together. Thus, this is more a list of the kinds of things I do in general, between work & play:
- Play online games (EVE online and Warcraft being the two I play most), either with friends or solo
- Watch interesting TV programs or movies, usually on DVD, and not very frequently
- Read books of all kinds, obviously, both fiction and non-fiction
- Read fascinating articles on-line, and sometimes blog about them in one place or another
- Write—I used to freelance for RPG companies, but now I mostly write on-line. I used to write fiction, but now I primarily write reviews and other sorts of non-fiction.
- Design T-shirts and related items at Cafepress—this started out as a lark and turned into a semi-job
- Garden—I vastly prefer edible gardening to ornamental gardening, and I love getting into things like composting as a part of gardening
- Cooking—I could bake, roast, and chop all week and never get tired of it!
- Sampling good foods—okay, so this one isn’t so good for the waistline, but I never get tired of trying new and interesting foods
- Play tabletop roleplaying games with friends, anywhere from once a month to once a week
- Play with the cats
I think I’ve covered most of it!
Speaking of foods and cooking, today’s review is of a Betty Crocker cookbook devoted to Whole Grains.
