Hi all:

Instead of what we do for work - what would we rather be doing? Hobbies, interests, etc.

Here is stuff I am preoccupied with:

1. VW's and Porsches
2. Personal Finance
3. Bargain shopping (thrift stores, Ebay, yard sales, flea markets, etc.)
4. Reading (Neal Stephenson, John Updike, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Robert Jordan, etc.)
5. Music (play bass & drums, like to listen to Primus, Cake, Beastie Boys, Weezer, Pixies)
6. Pets (Boxer, Chocolate Lab, and 3 cats)

What about you? :)

Typical guy, eh?
Nope...typical guy would have his first 3 needs met within the first 3 numbers.

1) sleep
2) get fed
3) sex

As for me NOT being a typical guy (yeah, marraige does that to you)...In no particular order mind you...

1)Nb.Org and my New beetle...
2)spending time with wife and child...
3)I make soap and candles and sundries, lotions, gift baskets(it's a hobby)
4)Gardening...when it's not snowing...
5)Playing computer simulations..RPG's FPS's...
5)Eat...sleep..and then sex (if the wife is willing):D

Job security and money money money, which is a new thing for me.

I'm preoccupied with worries that I'll lose my job thru no fault of my own, and so I spend time wondering if my job is secure and trying to figure out how to save up enough cash to live for 6 months while I look for a new job, if need be.

Used to be I didn't care about this stuff at all. :(
