Well, I play guitar, bass & mandolin.
I LOVE to garden. (There's nothing quite like getting dirt under your fingernails! Unless, of course, it's a guitar string!)
I'm a photographer (it's been a passion for YEARS).
I'm an artist (I work in several mediums).
I LOVE to cook.
I do needlework (embroidery and crewel, mostly).
And, I'm kind of a computer nerd.

I think that's it! :D

Add love to ride harleys and you're the perfect wife!!

Music is the universal language, love is the key.

I also don't have TOO many hobbies, but I find myself completly engrossed in the hobbies I do have.

Guitar, is the first and biggest of my hobbies.

Poker - I usually play every friday and Saturday, although my lack of income is taking a toll on that

Movies - Bigggg movie 'buff' I've seen the Godfather 4 times in the past two weeks... I like to share things with people, so I've been re-watching it with friends that have never seen it before, and I enjoy it more each time.

Books - Big Tolkien fan, Robert Jordan, Richard Adams, Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler. Dan Brown has recently been keeping me entertained lately too, can't wait to see the movie this weekend!

Seinfeld - Take a look at the avator. I'm one of those annoying guys that likes to say whenever something reminds me of Seinfeld, and because of the nature of the show, it's almost always possible to say it ;)

And that's pretty much it. I used to be big into video games...I consider myself one of the best Delta Force 2 online players, even though I don't play anymore, I could take it up and in a day be wiping the floor with people :) But I've stopped playing games as Guitar and Poker have become more important to me.

Apparently not a very good poker player if there are a lack of funds. :)

Interesting mix of interests here.

I've always fiddled with electronics (fixed my first TV at 13), and that's what has payed the bills for 20+ years. I guess it's still a hobby, though.

Other things:

-Photography
-Model railroading
-Computer abusing (see how far I can tweak it before breaking it. Then see if I can recover from whatever breakage I caused)
-Photo-manipulation (AKA Photoshopping - mostly goofy stuff for online contests)
-Reading (mostly sci-fi)
-Used to be into gaming (AD&D)
-Brewed my own beer for several years.

And of course, I've got this guitar that I'm having fun with.

learning to play guitar is one of my newest hobbies but i have many interests heres what my average week consists of , running at least twice a week, weight lifting, reading, playing with my kids, walking the dog, cooking, playing compergames on my shiny new xbox 360, going to the pub, playing pool, watching movies, listning to music, shooting, fishing when i get the chance, i used to ride horses and still get the chance occasionally,
i have to go to work as well which is a major annoyance but i have to fund everything else somehow!!
my major thing at the minue is obviously the guitar i have always wanted to be able to play so it seems to take over a lot of other things but i suppose you have to prioritise what most important to you at the time.

I think one cannot have enough hobbies. If I have to give one person I could call my 'idol' it would be Fourier: teacher, politician, secret agent, scientist, musician, filosopher, author, free adventurer, governor of a fairly big provence and, IIRC, one-time pirate.

That's what I call living life to the max. :D

What a great variety of interests. Mine, at 41 years old:

Playing baseball (not softball - Dali Lama, look into the MSBL in your area. :D )
My Harley
Cooking
Golf
Watching the Red Sox, Patriots and Hurricanes
Fishing
Photography (Still working with film to boot)

All this while working, being married with child and keeping up a house. Might explain why I've disappeared for a couple of months. :)
