As far as hobbies that I'd like to get into.  I would have to say Archery.  As I said numerous times I just enjoy bows and arrows ahaha.  I've done archery before and though I sucked,  I rather enjoyed it.  Made me feel powerful!..Well when I actually hit the target..

I did archery at 4H as a kid...would love to keep doing it. Also did martial arts for...a long time. Got my second degree brown belt in Ishin Ryu karate as well.

I loved martial arts!  I did Ninpo (ninjutsu) for a very long time and received my black.  Quite the experience!

Nice!  I never got into martial arts, but my cousin did.  I always envied his ability to kick something so high and when we were growing up. xD

High kicks might be my biggest weakness.

Kicks were always a problem for me, more because I'm 5'3'' and have short legs than anything else.  :'(

When not working or playing games I'm pretending to be a father and husband to my family while my pc or console system start up.  That or I'm sleeping.

Once in a while i will paint or draw for the fun of it.  but that's usually when the power is out or my cable connection is on the fritz

Outside of gaming I do a lot of graphic design at home aside from work. I enjoy finding it/recreating stuff found in film and television as well. In addition, I go to conventions, most of the time as a Ghostbuster or Jurassic Park vet. I also enjoy reading books and comics.

Neither do I, but I really want to start going to some!

I've done some sports in these past couple years. Started circuit boxing and this winter we had an active rinkball team going. I'm also trying to do some programming rarely, more often leaving halfway done game projects everywhere. I did back some KS projects with the hopes of getting to mod them, including DD. I've been playing Go for a while now, but there's been a break of sorts for the past few years. I could maybe get (back) to Euro 1 dan with significant effort.

In the past year or so work has started to eat up more time from me, so hobby time has been severely limited.
