    I LOVE watching movies, is that a hobby? Tee hee hee... Love to read. I'm trying my hand at some gardening - the jury is out, not sure if that is going to develop into a hobby yet. That's about all I have time for!

    Any Scrabble players out there?
    Shanazel, my sheeps are quite relaxed around me. It could be the Rohipnol I put in their foddir, I dunno.

    Default Hmmm....

    Besides bellydancing? The Sims2, when I have time! Man, that game is addicting. I created a Sim that looks so much like my husband, it's freakish. He even takes out the trash without my having to nag.
    Long walks are fun, and they help me to work off the strawberry shortcake, my weakness. If I didn't walk, I'd be as big as a house. Seriously. I love food, but fortunately lots of walking and bellydancing keeps the consequences of a big appetite at bay. I love books, and the category doesn't really matter. If it has a good plot-line and well-developed characters, I'll read it. I've read everything from "Anna Karenina" to "Scary Stories to tell in the Dark" (I have a ten-year-old).
    I'm also a grassroots political activist. Miraculously, I have perfect blood-pressure.

    It seems to be that kind of day- one of my posts ended up in the wrong place, too. A praying mantis is a bikini and shorts? Hmm, I never thought about biting the heads off of my victims- er, opponents. Do you play in Spanish or English, Zurah, and if in Spanish, do you have a Spanish version with tildes and ll and all?

    Izdihar, I am soooo superstitious about "Anna Karenina." Every time- I mean EVERY time I have started to read that book, I move. To date, that is half a dozen Anna Karenina-related moves in my life. I like where I am now, so gave the book to the library book sale years ago.

    My hobby is my six year old daughter. She's very active in swimming and cheerleading. I also *luv* bollywood movies.

    Yep, except there are no tildes. I have an older set, from before the Real Academia de la Lengua eliminated the double L and CH from the dictionary (those sounds used to count as only one letter. If you browse a dictionary made before the mid-nineties, words that start with that sound have their own section, instead of appearing in the C and L sections, as they do now). Which is great, because the 'ch' is 5 points, and the 'll' is eight, like the 'ń'

    It sure is hard to have hobbies when you have kids but you have to find time for yourself so you don't fall into that martyred mommy trap. Mine are: reading ( I'm working my way through the Jean Plaidy series of books that covers the British monarchy from the Norman invasion through Queen Victoria's reign). I also like to sew, bike ride and go to the beach. I like movies esp. old ones (from the silent era on). I was collecting lambs for awhile but people buy them for me now so I don't have to.
