    I like to learn more about the people on here. There are a lot of lovely people on and everyone I have talked to has been super nice. We all have a couple of things in common, but I bet a lot of people on here have some neat hobbies or things they are into. So what are you into? What are your hobbies / Passions?

    For me my hobbies are:
    Playing board and card games.
    Building and Painting little plastic people to play some of those games. (Yes we play the Warhammer AoS and 40K)
    Playing video games
    Cosplay
    Sewing costumes for cosplay / Renfaires (and sometimes just making my own clothing in general)
    Collecting Figmas, Nendoroids, and Anime statues.
    Making mead
    Bow hunting Deer and turkey (It’s nice to be outside and I can get a years worth of meat out of it.)

    My interests are:
    My spouse πŸ™‚
    Anime
    Comic books (Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, Death is my fave character of all time)
    Manga and Light novels
    Video Games
    Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and what Alice Found There. (Seriously this is kind of an obsession)
    Going to conventions
    Going to concerts
    Playing D.Va (Hana Song) in Overwatch (She let’s me harness the inner Korean Gamer Girl with a giant Mecha that resides in my heart)
    Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    What about you?

      Hi Lacey

      OK here are a few of my hobbies.

      I love hiking (the Lake District is our favourite), Baking cakes (vegan ones as the whole family are vegan, except me lol), Photography (mainly Wildlife), Singing (choral and contemporary, I sing in two choirs and I’m a Bass lol), I love making Jam especially Marmalade (which is in full swing right now) and I love gardening.

      Stephanie x

      Let’s see….

      I love to read, almost everything I get my hands on, especially Sci-Fi and History.Β  LOTR was the first major novel I read, at 10 yrs old.Β  I still read my cereal boxes, more for nutritional information than the rest of it now.

      Plinking with my .22 WMR, rifle and pistol.

      Hiking dry creek beds to see what I can find… mostly old bottles, but I do have a human forehead that washed out of an old burial ground on a small butte near here.

      Taking digital piccys of people, places and things not me.

      Day trips in the area.Β  Most any museum, especially the small town ones.Β  Old movies, home made frito pies with cheese and jalapenos.

      Just a few of many.

      Fun topic, Lacey. Lots of interesting replies from lots of interesting members.

      Now that I’ve retired I have more time to indulge in hobbies.
      My primary hobby is watching my grandchildren. Is it fair to call that a hobby? They can be quote a handful but soooo much fun. I can play a bit more golf and devote time to improving my game. I love to read and will read just about anything I find but tend toward history especially the American Civil War. I’ve also revived a long dormant interest in photography and that new-fangled PhotoShop.

      Hugs, Jillian

      My hobby is music. I was a semi-professional musician, & soon, will be again.
      I will retire from my automotive electronics career of 45+ years in 13 days, & return to being a full time musician. I play guitar, bass, drums, & keybords. I write & record my own music in the style of the British Invasion of the 1960s. Ironically, my career will become my hobby. I would like to play a bunch of nursing homes & assisted living centers, as those poor folks are starved for entertainment. This would be a great way for me to “give back” for all the blessings in my life.
      I will also become a grandma in the next 6 months, so I will be the “rocking grandma”!

      Hobbies and interests are reading, music, watching old classic movies, cross-stitch. I love cuddling up with our little dog Bella. But our biggest passion is hooking up to our trailer during the summer and camping.

      my main other hobby is golf, I can be found on the golf course 2-3 times a week, my other hobbies include playing baritone in a brass band and watching sport on the television.

      I use to enjoy riding my motorcycle but due to my now dodgy knees hips and back I had to give it up.

      As I’ve spoken about it in previous posts I was forbidden to play with dolls as a boy. I really wanted to play with Barbie’s. Now as a fully out woman I am now collecting Barbie’s and all her friends. As of today I have 117 dolls, that will change soon I’m sure. For a fun kick check into past articles here in CDH for my story of Ken and Barbie. Spoiler alert, Ken is a crossdresser.

      For other interests I have model railroading and wedding DJ. The line between work and play is nonexistent when you are a DJ. You get paid to throw a party and have fun!

        I did some DJing in Tokyo, mostly some trance and progressive, and I have done weddings and some KJ work too. It was a lot of fun.

        Now you can buy all the Barbie Dolls you want, and that is awesome. I am happy you are finally able to get your dolls. Which one is your favorite? Which was the one you wanted that was the hardest to track down. My wife collects Harley Quinn figures and merchandise, while I collect Neil Gaiman’s Death statues and items. I spent 3 years trying to track down one specific statue for a price I would pay. I also collect Figmas, Nendoriods, and some Anime Statues. Figmas are like super highly pose-able figures and Nendoroids are just absolutely adorable.

          I haven’t searched for any one specific doll but check the various sites and if I see something that strikes my fancy and it isn’t too expensive I will get it. That being said, there are lots of dolls that strike my fancy but are shockingly expensive. I have seen special addition Barbie’s for over $1000.

          It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I am partial to two. The first is a red head that I named Ann because she reminds me of Ann Margaret. The other is a brunette I named Jacqueline, she looks like Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis.

          I name all the dolls, many are named according to the Barbie Lexicon but Mattel hasn’t specified names for all of them so I choose a name I like. Of course I have some duplicates so they become twins! Did you know Barbie has a twin? I named her Betty! I have thought about writing a story about the other family. Archie (Ken’s cousin), Betty (Barbie’s twin), Veronica, Reggie and the gang from Riverdale.

      Going to watch my football team.

      Hiking, although i’m not as fit as i used to be.

      But i suppose my biggest passion is gardening. If i won the lottery, i would buy a house with the biggest garden ever, retire and spend all my time gardening. It would be so big my wife would need to send out a search party to find me. Some woodland would be nice too, and maybe a lake. A massive summer house where i could sit and watch the sun go down and slowly get drunk. Some chickens maybe. Migrating geese would pay a visit on their way through. OK i’m getting carried away…..

        Hiking is fun. We do it some. What has been neat about Pokemon Go is that the different parks have different Pokemon that show up there and my wife, who is not really an outside girl, or a hiking girl, will go online, see where the ones she are looking for are, and then go, “Can we go and hike the trails at _________ so I can find this Pokemon?” Of course the answer is yes, and we have a lot of fun with it?

        What kind of gardening do you do? We love the idea of having a fairy garden in the backyard, but don’t really have a plan for it yet. There is a lot to it.

        What kind of photography do you do? I have a friend who does street photography / candid in Tokyo and some of his shots are just amazing.

        I have been working on my makeup skills, it takes some work, but I am getting better with contouring and cat and smoky eye. I’ve only been out a couple of times to safe spots, but have had a lot of fun doing it.

      Hi Lacy,

      Taking cdh as a default interest as are my daughters and their families:

      The internet and all the wonderful holes there are to go down. You can even find your way back out on a good day.

      Travelling on the cheap in foreign parts – except for bloody covid

      CIV3 (not 1,2,4,5,6) can keep me up all night

      I do get out now and again, I like a good long walk, with a dog if I can borrow one – I live in the beautiful Brecon Beacons – but I’m slowing down a bit these days.

      An evening of laughter with good friends and smoking things, drinking things and eating things.

      Marti xxx

        You have to be careful with those internet holes, most don’t lead to Wonderland at all. Some can be pretty dark.

        Traveling is fun, we have lived in the US and Japan and have had a chance to travel all over Asia, I have been to Europe a couple of times, mainly to visit Denmark though and see some family there.

          You’re right there, Lacey, the internet has a lot of darkness.Β  It’s a big place though. and I remain comfortable that there’s many, many more good places to visit. What’s that saying? “Keep an open mind, but not that open that your brains fall out”. But even if you dedicate yourself to just wiki, there’s a vast new world of knowledge to discover.

          Travelling? Yes, SE Asia was my go to place in my last few travels, Japan has eluded me so far, but I’d like to check it out before I hang up my travelling shoes.

        Woodworking always smells so good. What kind of things do you make? What do you like to hunt? I do some bow hunting and I enjoy just being out in nature, also it let’s us get a years worth of meat pretty easily, especially since I am the only one in the house who eats meat.

        My Dad is getting near retiring and he is looking forward to it, but also trying to find hobbies he thinks he’ll enjoy. He spent so much time working hard to provide for all of us, a lot of times working 2 jobs, and taking care of everyone else, that he never figured out what he likes to do just for him, other than working on and riding his motorcycles, so he is experimenting with other hobbies. He detests being bored at all and can’t just sit and watch TV. He is not the kind of guy who can sit around. He’d go a bit mad.

          Hi Lacey. Good luck to your dad keeping busy.

          Yep adjusting to being retired isn’t easy for many. Its been over 6 years since I retired and I still have days that just drive me nuts having nothing to do. I sort of made a joke with my last response to your question so here is my serious answer…

          Woodworking – furniture but not so much anymore
          Sculpting – in plaster and rock
          Watching American football and baseball – Go Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons
          Gardening – was big time retail once but not now
          Movies – watch all types of movies but horror
          Reading non fiction books – fiction usually doesn’t interest me
          WWII buff – have read all the books I could get
          Camping – some call it glamping… love the outdoors
          Fishing – kayaking, trout fishing and salt water fishing
          Big Game hunting – was big time traveling but not anymore
          Boating – sold my money pit boat… sigh… want another… sigh

      My passions, but also part of my work, is wildlife and nature photography, as an archeologist and naturalist often span my leisure and my work. My other great passion is dancing but its also more than a hobby. I dance at a high level jive/blues and my favourite contemorary, part of a theatre and dance company.
      My reading is almost always factual, rare I read a story, and the reading spans the above.
      I used to love live gigs where I d dance and dance but alas, that is slow in coming back in the UK, so thats a waiting game at the moment. Love my music naturally.
      I m more hippy chick than glam lol.

        That is fun though, we love animals, we have scale babies though not fur babies. Some people are not a fan of them, be we love them all.

        I always thought archeologist would be a really neat job, not like Indian Jones, but like finding things no one knew existed before and learning more about the past through what you find.

        Dancing is always fun too, Covid has really killed being able to do much of anything, including going to shows, but I really hope we are getting near the end of it soon.

          heya Lacey, scale babies? Does that mean snakes? As for the archeology it was great, just dabble now but it was a lil Indiana for me as a lot of it was swinging around on ropes 300ft below ground and crawling and digging through collapsed sections to get to the good stuff…I ve had some great projects that I ve been in charge of. Truly fantastic.

          As for dance, yes covid has done a lot of damage here in UK, things are still not moving even though everything else is. I ve just started back this last week so it was exceptionally good to get my mojo back. I lost it went covid shut things down weeks before I was to be a lead solo contemporary dancer in a huge outdoor public event…but hey ho, maybe this year…or next.

          Best to cross fingers and toes that all is now settling as it appears to be.

            Yes, we have reptiles / snakes, also a tarantula. They are fun though. I know some people get freaked out by them, but they are all sweethearts.

            The Archeology stuff really sound like an adventure.

      I’m a big history buff and love anything vintage and interesting. Very keen on watching documentaries and classic era (1930s-β€˜50s) movies and visiting museums and historic sites. Β Enjoy fitness activities including walking, hiking and bicycling and am taking up a little yoga to help keep me limber.

        I have a weird fascination with WWII era documentaries, because it is a big part of the reason my family is now in American rather than back in Europe. We really like going to museums, including like military museums.

        I have been doing yoga for a few years now and it is a big part of my weight lose and I have really enjoyed it. That and walking, and a diet adjustment has helped me lose a lot of weight.

          Hi Lacy, I currently using a Remington 30/06, but I am looking at 50 caliber sniper rifles. We used to go to Cabo about 10 times a year we had a resort there we loved. Desire was the name. They closed so we go to Cancun as they have two resorts there. We are looking for another adult only resort in Cabo to start going back. It is so nice there and so close for us just a short plane flight.

          Huggs,

          Jackie.

        A lot of people play golf. I played a little golf when I was in the military, mainly because they would close down the e-club during lockdowns, but they would still serve beer at the par 3 and O Club. Woodworking has always seemed neat, much like leather I just love the smell when people are working with wood and some of the things people can make are amazing.

          I love the smell of sawdust. I built a house, literally, by myself. Took me almost two years to finish it. I also like to find stained glass pieces and build window frames around them. I have several hanging in my house.

            Stained glass is beautiful. We help build houses for Habitat for Humanity every summer, but I couldn’t imagine trying to just like build build one from scratch. I can pour a foundation or do concrete flat work though.

            I had to pay someone to do the foundation, just too big for one person. I also had to hire out the electrical and plumbing for permits. I had a friend help me with the ceiling joists and rafters. Every one thought I was crazy.

        What kind of sci-fi and fantasy do you like to read? Also what kind do you like to watch. We have really been enjoying the Mandalorian on Disney+ and I thought they did a really good job with the new Dune Movie. As for Sci-Fi books I have been reading a series that is kind of a combination of Sci-Fi and fantasy called Sword Art Online. I have really been enjoying it. It is a Light Novel series where initially they get trapped in a virtual world, kind of like .Hack.

          Oh, the harder the better.Β  Cherryh, Vinge, Reynolds, Niven for SF.Β  The Expanse is excellent, the books and the TV series. Fantasy – again, the harder the better – Abercrombie, Martin, Morgan.

          The Mandolorian was pretty good, haven’t seen Dune yet.

          Stranger Things is good, the 12 Monkeys series was brilliant, Hawkeye was fun. ST Discovery has fallen off a bit, but still watchable.

            I haven’t seen Stranger Things yet, but I have heard good things. I loved 12 Monkeys and I really really like Hawkeye. I think Marvel has done a really good job with their Streaming Service series. Like Loki was great, so were Falcon and Winter Soldier and WandaVision.

             

            I have never gotten into Star Trek, but really like the Farscape, Red Dwarf, Dr Who, Firefly and Star Wars.

            Forgot Farscape! The “reimagined” BSG was pretty cool too, as was Babylon Five. I enjoyed Loki. Wandavision grew on me, but I had to force myself to sit through the first two episodes.

        Oooo! Model railroads! I’m an armchair modeler mostly because I haven’t had a place to set up until recently. Now I am considering plans that might work in the rental I am in. It needs to be small, portable but expandable. I work in HO but am thinking of switching to N to get a larger layout in a smaller footprint.

          Scale models are fun, I build and paint a lot of those for war gaming. I have always wondered do you have to paint the little trains and building yourself like I do for the war gaming miniatures or do they come prebuilt and painted? Also have you looked into 3D printers at all yet? I know they have become really popular with wargamers and I could see them being useful for other scale modelers too.

          What is the difference between HO and N size? Like the miniatures and buildings with build, paint and play with are 28MM scale. I didn’t know if trains scales out the same way.

            Most modelers buy RTR (ready to run) models and buildings already assembled and painted. You can also buy craftsman kits that you assemble and paint yourself or you can freelance and scratchbuild whatever you want.

            3d printers are becoming popular for scratchbuilders as they can create parts that are difficult to make by hand.

            There are many different scales but the most popular are O, HO and N. O is 1:48 scale, fairly large and takes up quite a bit of room (mostly only seen in Model Railroad Clubs that occupy an entire building). HO is 1:87 scale.Β  This is a nice size for home hobiests as it still has good detail but a modest layout can be built in a spare room. N is 1:160 scale. This size allows a decent sized empire in a spare room or can even be built as modular for moving and assembly.

      Too many hobbies.
      Ham radio, photography, all things steam related, old cars, old machinery, astronomy, all things Sinclair (I own many computers, a C5, a Zike, an “A”bike, a radio, and other bits and bobs). Most of the above are aided an abetted by our motorhomes. So we get away to shows, fairs etc as often as we can.

      Hi Lacey!

      Nice topic, and I think you will get the whole spectrum of answers too!Β  I noticed right away we share a common hobby- board gaming.Β  I’m a huge and long time grognard of wargames from back in the 70’s and 80’s.Β  I will confess to having about 200….. yes I have quite the collection, and an addiction I guess too, lol.Β  As far as miniatures, no Warhammer, but big on Battletech.

      The wargaming comes from my passion for military history, life time student of that.

      Reckon other interests would include being an animal lover ( I feel rage towards animal abusers 🤬 ), baseball, sociology, old movies, and of course music!!Β  I loveΒ  most all music, but my fave would be 70’s rock n’ roll.Β  Never underestimate the therapeutic value of music.

      Umm, to sound girly….. I really do enjoy long walks, ideally not alone, and ideally surrounded by nature.Β  I am so not a big city girl!

      P.S. – I like ANYTHING that makes me laugh!

      Hmm, that may not all sound particularly interesting, but that’s a big part of me. 🙂

      Stevie

        Thank you. I thought it could be a fun topic that everyone would be able to add something to if they wanted to.

        Wow 200 board games is a lot. We have like 40 or so including Zombicide, Hellboy, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Smash up, and the most recent one we got was Warhammer Cursed City.

        I tried Battletech, but it felt too much like a standardized test for me with all the little bubbles to fill in on the sheets LOL.

        Music is my daily therapy and I have pretty varied tastes, like my Spotify playlist is all over the place.

        I love animals too. We have reptiles though, no fur babies.

        I love music. I played football in high school, but don’t really know anything about Rugby.

        Oh wow. That is a lot of instruments. I love the way the mandolin sounds, it’s so pretty.
