Here's the Friday Five:
1. What are your hobbies? Crocheting - mostly baby blankets. Refinishing furniture, often with dimension-bending results. Doing my physical therapy - I call it a hobby, because I'm not consistent in taking care of myself ;-> For that matter, I guess being in pain is a sort of hobby, when I don't do my PT... yeah, coming up with non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical ways to manage arthritis pain. That's kind of a hobby. Writing short stories - I guess that has to fall into the hobby category until I get paid for it. *sigh*
2. Do you collect anything? If so, what? Pens, really good fountain pens. And journals. Mind you, I never write in them, just like to have them around me as glimmering potential in yummy wrappers. Also camels and dragons and elephants - statues, mind you, not the real things. And books - have a first edition of a Tarzan book, and lots of signed first editions of more modern authors. And boxes - I love having places to put stuff, even if I never do.
3. Is there a hobby you're interested in, but just don't have the time/money to do? Jewelry making - no time. And actually getting my greeting card business off the ground - again, a distraction from writing. And building more websites - I love that, but again again, a distraction from writing.
4. Have you ever turned a hobby into a moneymaking opportunity? Writing snarky stuff - made a nice little chunk of change from Universal writing columns on Things That Can Kill You, and Horrorskopes, and episode reviews of Buffy, Angel and X-Files.
5. Besides web-related stuff (burbs, rings, etc.), what clubs do you belong to? Not much of a joiner - tend to agree with Mark Twain's opinion on that sort of thing - wouldn't want to be a member of any club that would have me. Unless there's feather boas and ball gags and lots of pretty shiny things... ahem. Yeah.
