While I might have taken a two-decade or so break from LEGO, I never stopped reading comics since I started back in 6th grade. I've seen Spider-man's status quo change and revert more times than I care to remember. My favorites, including Spidey, are Invincible, The Walking Dead, Hellboy, Atomic Robo
Most of my contemporaries will remember becoming obsessed with Karate after Mr. Miyagi made it so awesome looking. While I did take Tae Kwon Do in my elementary school years and also have dabbled in Ju Jitsu and Tang Lang Quan (Northern Praying Mantis Fist) Kung Fu, the other Asian discipline espoused in the Karate Kid movies took more of a hold on my imagination - Bonsai. I've tried my hand at it multiple times and have murdered my fair share of innocent trees, but this was mainly due to inexperience and lack of proper tools, time and space in which to do it. I currently have a juniper in my front yard that I transplanted from my brother-in-law's house which is doing quite nicely. I think it will be ready to pot and prune sometime in the next year.
I also hope to find a school that teaches Tang Lang Quan near my home, but so far have found nothing.
Finally, I went to Pratt Institute and studied Illustration and Graphic Design, and intend to use that to develop one or more fo the ideas I have for webcomics. While it hasn't been updated in a LOOONG time, I have a sketchblog at http://dailyscribble.vynsane.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I play an occasional Magic game with some decks I built. I don't have a whole lot of downtime with two kids and two jobs but I like sorting my Lego collection right now.
Do you display your PEZ dispensers? We (my daughter and I) have a strange addiction to PEZ, I can't resist those things and end up buying her treats every now and then in the form of a Pez dispenser. I even bought a 4-5 piece Hello Kitty set that came in a lunch box...so cute. Anyway we have them kind of jumbled up all around the house but I'm wondering if there is a good way to display them. How many do you have? We probably only have 20 or so, I'm not sure if that qualifies as a collection.kevin7215 wrote:Collecting PEZ (not interested in that as much as LEGO's or course), Movies, Watching Football, Jogging (although that has taken a hit since I have three young children)
My current hobbies include gardening (veggie and flower), crafts (crochet, some scrapbooking), photography (I definitely have not displayed my best work here), watching TV, and SHOPPING (especially the bargain kind). ;) I also am a New England sports fan and watch my fair share of Patriots and Red Sox games w/ my husband. Celtics and Bruins only if they are in the playoffs :)
My husband is OK with my hobbies, except the shopping one. ;) And he thinks I'm crazy to want so much Lego in the house.
Brings back the memories of other hobbies.. I got into Magic when it first came out and sold my cards about 5 years ago for a nice chunk of change. Sadly, I never got into PEZ though lol.
My Flickr: There isn't much but I have a lot of favorites!
Gardening: we grow a ton of food, and this time of year I'm a sunburned dirt ball dawn to dusk.
Ultimate frisbee: used to play a lot, then everybody moved. I throw a killer Hammer.
Reading: Lego has severely cut into my reading time. I admit to being a literature snob who enjoys the heavyweights in fiction, philosophy, and criticism.
