You want a Hobbit?? No! A HOBBY!!

Ok, so I am in quest of a new hobby. I want to spice up my life, make myself more interesting, expand my horizons.

I did decide to go to London for Summer Term Study Abroad (I think...still iffy, but only one day left to back out without penalty...).

I hope to come back from that trip with an Oliver Twist Cockney accent, and also an uppity Jeeve's the Butler English accent. Maybe even some Scottish, because we'll be in Edinburgh too (and I'm taking a Scottish literature class..."Sticks and stanes may brake yer banes, but words will naever hurt ye")

But back to the topic at hand. A new hobby.

Here's a list of possible ones to pursue. I'm sure I'll add more as I think about it.
*Racketball
*Tennis
*Fishing
*Hiking (I already enjoy hiking, but I could do it more
*Wakeboarding (Ditto hiking)
*Swimming (Ditto hiking and wakeboarding)
*Photography
*Geocaching
*Shotgun shooting

Ok, here are some hobby's I will most definitely NOT pursue:
*Checkers (I'm the worst checker's player ever)
*Rock climbing
*Skiing
*Bird watching (uh...that's a robin...er no...a sparrow...er..ahh..dahh!!)
*Shopping
*Painting
*Pottery
*Bow hunting
*Video games


Any thoughts, fam and friends?

Hey - I'm going to get into Photography, too. Take a class with me or something. And swimming sounds fun, but does Europe have swimming pools?

Hey Dave, Have you ever thought about quilting....just thought I'd mention it cause..well, you know its a great hobby...
Actually photography does sound fun, I always wanted to do that but never really did. My friend took a class, invested in a good camera and now she does weddings and is doing pretty good... all in the name of a hobbit!!
