Title: What do you do when you're not watching G.G.?
Post by: Lovefiend on November 19, 2006, 07:04:38 pm
Here's a thread (Mods feel free to delete or move  ;D, and sorry if it's in the wrong place, or a duplicate, I did search!), to talk about your hobbies! (Hobby's??)

What is it you do with your spare time? What keeps you happy??

It's great to talk to people with the same hobbies and likes as yourself, so here's a thread to get 'em all together!

I'll start if you like, my hobbies are: Dancing (ballet and tap), watching movies, acting, singing, reading, running, walking, eating (hehe) and writing.

How 'bout everyone else??

I like to rock & roll all night, and party everyday.

I'm sure you do Gene Simmons. I like how you're integrating classic songs into your posts today. Nice stuff :D

It's my new "thing." I know it will catch on like wildfire.

If I may shock you by being serious for a moment, I actually do have a few hobbies! I make jewelry, I draw, I design and make clothing, I'm currently learning Italian off of one of those computer programs, I pimp people's myspaces, I bake, and I'm really good at using those blunt-tipped scissors they give kids so they don't stab themselves in the eye by accident (that's a talent! those things are awkward!).


Rocking and rolling all night, and partying everyday?

I love this idea for a thread!  Okay, so I fill my time up with A LOT of clutter but it's all stuff I love.
To start with, I spend a majority of my time working.  I bring quite a bit of work home with me each day as well, so there's that.  But . . . I love having free time!  Here's what I usually do: 
1.  Shop!  What can I say?  I love perusing stores.  The thing is, I don't just clothes shop (although that's fun, too).  I especially like buying things for my house.  Apparently, I'm a nester and I love decorating.  I have brand new furniture in my living room that is making me very happy right now!  :)

2.  Soccer.  I love to play soccer and have since I was little.  And, yes, Mia Hamm is my idol.

3.  Organizing.  Okay, I have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) on this one.  I love sorting, labeling, filing things.  You should see my closet.  It's a sickness really.  Everything is grouped and labeled according to color.

4.  Scrapbooking.  My goal is to have my entire life story told by me via scrapbooks before I die.

5.  Reading - Reading has been my escape as long as I can remember.  If a book is really good, forget getting anything else done.

6.  Music - Music makes me happy.

7.  Cooking -- as if!   ;D  I'm so with Lorelai on that one.  I can cook, I'm good at cooking - I just find no joy from it.

Ha ha -- my friend is over and I just asked her what else I should put and she said "talking on the phone - for hours!"  It's true, I've killed many a cordless phone due to massive amounts of usage.  I'm a good phone multi-tasker as well.  Yesterday I was X-mas shopping online, eating a burrito, and chatting on the phone all at the same time.  Don't even get me started on my cell phone.  Not sure if I still know how to drive without it attached to my ear.  :D  (Good thing that's not illegal here - yet).  Ah, yes, there are many more aspects to complicated me, but this is becoming long.

- Hike up mountaintops and to old Lookout Tower sites

- Take way too many slide pictures with my old manual Olympus OM-1

- Hunt

- Play with my boy

- Watch more sports

- Drink too much beer

Hehe Helly's a scrabooker. That's so interesting, your whole life - that'd be cool!

Yay - a lot of "manly" stuff to contradict all the girly stuff I just posted!  :D

Thanks :)
A pretty stick for the creator!   :)  Helen scrapbooks?  Cool!  I spend way too much time and money on it.  Okay, this is morbid but -- I got the idea from my godmother's funeral.  Her friend threw together a scrapbook of her life in about two days to have out at her funeral.  It was very powerful.  I decided that I would like to do that for my life, but in much greater detail and told by me.


Title: Re: What do you do when you're not watching G.G.?
Post by: Lovefiend on November 21, 2006, 02:54:40 pm
That's exactly what Helen did!! After her Mother died, she inherited all of her photos, adn to help through her pain she started scrapbooking pics of her Mother. Woah. SNAP

lol - the only bad thing is that I'm not really a "winter person", and I live way up in Northern Idaho where winter is coming up pretty quick here...  That takes a lot of my hiking oportunities away, but I do have snowshoes.

Post by: Lauren is my idol on November 21, 2006, 04:38:58 pm
Let's see....I like to:
~Sing (by myself lol)...People say I'm good at it, but I don't like singing in front of people unless I'm with my friends.
~Go on hikes... I love the hill up my street. When you're at the top, and looking down, there's an area that's like empty, with only like 5 houses...no neighborhood....for a long ways.
~Hang out with friends.
~Take pictures/Get pictures taken of me... Good way to express yourself.
 There's more, but that's all for now lol

Lovefiend,
i do many of the things you mention.  Jazz dance, singing, guitar, acting, writing.  This is a nice idea this thread.

flex151 - i am interested in ITALIAN language if you would be so kind to mention what program you are using, if you like it a lot.  thank you, as i am serious also about learning this language.  I love Italy.


Title: Re: What do you do when you're not watching G.G.?
Post by: Ggirlfan on November 22, 2006, 06:32:49 pm
This is a great idea for a thread! 


2.  Soccer.  I love to play soccer and have since I was little.  And, yes, Mia Hamm is my idol.



Hey Michelle, I used to play soccer too!  My son Luke plays soccer and ironically plays the same position I did so I can give him some pointers!
I am usually spending a lot of time going to my son's soccer games, practices,  and baseball games .  He keeps me busy!

The first thing I will have to admit, when I'm not watching Gilmore Girls is spending too much time on the computer, especially reading all the posts on Gilmoregirls.org!!  Also, like The Incision (Grey's Anatomy board).

I love to go shopping with my girlfriends!  I have more fun hanging out and chatting while shopping, more so than even the shopping itself.

Working :(   

Going out for dinner...new obsession is Thai food!

Reading....love Dennis Lehane books, Nelson DeMille, and Nicholas Sparks too.

My favorite thing to do is to grab a great book and hang out at the beach for a few hours getting some sun and reading!

Post by: Sooks on November 23, 2006, 05:22:54 pm
Much like many have already mentioned, I love to read! Curling up with a good book and some warm tea or hot coco...there's nothing like it!

I'm pretty much a home-body, I'm not the gal to go out and party and I don't "get out" much!

I enjoy going to dinner with friends after work, having fun seeing a movie in the theater, going to a concert here and there.
I enjoy spending tmie with those that I love, friends and family! One day, they or you may not be around to spend time with.
I enjoy learning - nothing could be satisfying to me (other than a job well done!) and it's something that has no end! I'm currently a student and love it!
I enjoy learning about other people, meeting others, and studying our culture/ society.
I enjoy museums and history!
I enjoy going to a sporting event every now and then!
I enjoy the snow! (It's beautiful!)
I enjoy thinking...

This was a VERY enjoyable thread to read! It's aways fun getting to know people from around the country (world) and as someone towards the beginning stated, it's good to find others with similar interests!  :)

I love to dance (hip hop). Sometimes I play volleyball with my friends. I play on the computer a lot, and watch a lot of TV. Also when I"m bored I watch Gilmore girls on DVD. I have all 6 seasons now. I play percussion too. in regular school band and in jazz band, a drum set.

Hey, Kristin, that's so cool you're a soccer girl too!   :)  What position did you play?  I love that your son's name is Luke!  Near me there is an enormous indoor soccer complex where there's about 12 games being played at all times.  It's crazy!  Fun, though, in the winter when you can't really play outside.  Oh, I love Grey's Anatomy, too!  I've never checked out that board before.

It's great to hear everyone's hobbies!  ;)

Oy, the list of what I do when not watching GG is short:

Work (totally uninteresting job, but the people don't suck)
Write (anything from song lyrics to fiction)
Listen to music (love the singer/songwriters -- I wanna marry Jason Mraz)
Surf Online
Crush on a Co-Worker

When I'm not watching Gilmore Girls...yikes..that's hard cause I'm always watching Gilmore Girls...lol

I have a variety of interests including:

1.  Reading-I've loved to read since I was little and if I find a good book, it's really hard to pry me away from it.
2.  Writing- This is a skill I've only developed recently, but I'm now into writing one-shot fanfics, mainly about Luke and Lorelai.
3.  Music-Mostly country, but I do like some rock and I'll admit a guilty pleasure...Backstreet Boys (as long as its their old stuff)
4.  Sleeping in on the weekends-what could be better than that?
5.  Being with my friends-no real explanation needed here...
6.  Daydreaming- I have a very active imagination, and love to daydream about future situations.
7.  Skiing- The only sport I'm semi-decent at.
8.  Americana Stuff- I'm obsessed with American Flags, and have been since Sept 11th. 
9.  Talking on the phone- I call my girlfriends all the time and love to talk to them.
10.  Debate with the BB's-I've actually found I have some kind of talent for this because there's been a few people who've told me I'm good at it.  I've actually gotten a BB to jump ship and come join the JJ's.  SCORE!
11.  Church-I'm Mormon, so I go to church on Sundays and the activities.

It's great to hear everyone's hobbies!  ;)

I used to play forward, a wing actually.  Mostly left wing. I played from when I was about 8 all through high school, but that was about 20 years ago now.  :'( My parents come to all Luke's games now and my Dad is yelling the same thing he yelled to me, "use your LEFT FOOT!" LOL!  Luke will be playing indoor soccer for the first time in the next month or so.  I signed him up for spring soccer, but his coach said he wants the team to play some indoor games first. I have never seen an indoor game before, but I heard it is very intense, fast paced.  I can't wait to see!

Grey's Anatomy is another one of my shows I never miss besides Gilmore Girls.  The board I go to is www.the-incision.net if you wanted to check it out.

Me too!Its really fun.What position?I play right and center full back,as well as sweeper,and far right forward if I have too :) I had to stop practicing because I got really sick for a while about 2 weeks ago but in a few days i'm thinking of starting it up again!

Indoor games are really fun!!I would say not any more fast-paced then regular games,but its certainly fun!I've only played one indoor game so i'm not one who knows to much about though.

Wow - lots of soccer players are emerging!  That's so cool, Ali, that you've played since you were five!  Sorry to hear you were sick.  :(  Yay, you like to ride horses like Lauren!  :)

Even though I said Mia Hamm is my idol, I'm not a forward like she was.  I always have been and always will be a goalie.  Or, in goalie-speak, I like to "live between the pipes."  It's my favorite postion and I've played it since I was seven.  I just don't like anything to get past me -- also, I love to kick the ball all the way across the field once I've nabbed it.

Kristin - indoor games are very fast-paced, you'll love it!  It's so cool your dad gets to re-live your soccer days through Luke.  I'm going to check out that GA site in a bit.

When I'm not watching Gilmore Girls...yikes..that's hard cause I'm always watching Gilmore Girls...lol
I know - it's amazing any of us get anything else done at all!    :D

I like to drop it like it's HOT.

Lol.Mia Hamm is really cool.I look up more towrards one of my best friends,Katie,whos and exxxxxcellent full back.And then Caitlin is my full-back playing partner!!She plays left and I play right,Katie plays center (sometimes) and so we donminate.lol :D But now Caitlin can't play for years so we're all screwed up.:D

Goalie?:) thats cool!Lol.Thats cool.I never had that nack for catching the ball so I'll never be good-but I do respect the people who are!!I bet you are!!But drop kicking issssss fun!Can you kick it the length of the field with ease?

I'm 35 now, but I was captain of my Varsity Basketball and Football teams.  I never had the size or overwhelming skills, but I guess my persistance made up for it...

Now, I golf every now and then, and still play in our annual H.S. Basketball tournament.

I love Grey's Anatomy too and thus making Tuesday and Thursday my favorite days!  ;D I like that so many people read - it's good!


I don't know about 105 books in a year though, well maybe, I haven't counted actually. That's pretty impressive! Loganslover, we're going to have to trade book titles sometime!

What type of books does everyone like (everyone that enjoys to read when not watching GG)

OK! I'm psyched to say that now when I'm not watching Gilmore Girls, I'm KNITTING!! I have figured out how and have been practicing since the knitting episode! How much of a geek am I?! haha But it's so much fun and takes my mind off things, it's relaxing and stress free! It's great! Just thought I'd share! :)

Cool, my Mom knits when she's stresed. I've tried like 18 times to learn how, but it just doesn't really, well, work

I'm still just getting the basic knit and purl stitches down but it's going pretty good so far. I haven't tried any serious patterns yet but I hope to get onto those soon! I just practicing - and that alone is comforting and a great stress reliever! How long have you been knitting, rorygilmoregirl93? That's aweomse that you knit too! I hope to keep learning more and one day, maybe be able to do something more than a scarf! (But hey, where I'm from, scarves are definitely good!)  ;D

Well hang in there! We'll get it eventually! :) It's so relaxing! And very rewarding to succeed at something! haha We will make it our goal to defeat the Purl stitch this coming year and move on to something more than a scarf! (Not that scarves aren't great!) I want to try a blanket of some sort, I LOVE blankets! But that will be awhile yet!

It's too bad that I like doing so many other things too. I can't keep focusing on one thing for too long, I need  to work on that!
Pretty stick for the knitters!

hehe!Ok!New resolution!
Oh god-no blankets.I made just a baby blanket for my niece before she was born (when Jessica was 6 months pregnant) and it took me till she was 4 months old to finish it!They take forever and get really boring!Warning!

:) we should make a club-knitters unite!!!
Pretty stick for you too!

Thanks for the warning! haha I wouldn't have thought of how boring they may get. Especially with my low attention span! I'll stick with scarves for a long while I'm thinking!

Yes, we should start a knitters club or some sort! That would be awesome!

Anyone else knit??

When I'm not watching GG? I spend my time thinking about GG...

Or I watch other stuff. I also spend a fair amount of time writing and programming and reading.

Let's see....I like to:
~Sing (by myself lol)...People say I'm good at it, but I don't like singing in front of people unless I'm with my friends.
~Go on hikes... I love the hill up my street. When you're at the top, and looking down, there's an area that's like empty, with only like 5 houses...no neighborhood....for a long ways.
~Hang out with friends.
~Take pictures/Get pictures taken of me... Good way to express yourself.
 There's more, but that's all for now lol
your hobbies are same with me i aslo love sing and dancing what's your favourite song or singer i love Avril ,go on hilkes that's also a good choice to me when you climb to the top you feel you have  conquer the whole world i love that feeling very good
ps:where are you from i think we can go hiking together girl LOL

What do i do when not watching GG? Living my life i guess. Attending classes, writting papers, checking my emails, watching tv shows and movies, listening to music and making banners sometimes. Nothing too special.  :P I can't stand reading a book for fun though, not anymore. College killed any interest in reading i had!  :(

So, I've taken up circus skills (think Cirque D Solei' and P!nk concerts)
My whole body aches, but it's so much fun. I reccomend it. But I reccomend staying away from the hoop (lyra) if you get motion sickness. Nearly painted the room with my stomach contents.
