Reading history of food & military stuff. Sci fi ,

Gardens & small town visits.

Finding new pubs & places to eat on day trips,

Visiting cool places like Glastonbury & Stonehenge.

Talking to pixies,

Day trips to France & Belgium,

Farmers markets & fruit picking,

It's funny how much your life change when your computer is away. You get so used to being connect to the world, you start missing all those virtual people you are so used to hang around with.

Yet when you look at your computer, at your named computer it's the most useless thing you can buy. What does it do on its own? Nothing. You have to but in softwares and harswares to make it come to life. And then it become priceless. It keep your secrets, bring you closer to so many people you would have not met othwerwise.

Everyime my computer left I seem to get nostalgic and for some strange reason I can't help it. You leave the world and you are always a bit scared by what you will find when you get back.


Not to say the real world does not have much to offer, it's just nice to have both world at your fingertips....

Lately, I find a lot of relaxation by heading out to the wilderness to do some camping, foraging and just about anything to do with getting out into nature.

Of course back at home as Mezzaluna can affirm I do enjoy the old home theater that I built (build the tv directly into the wall). It is lots of fun for us to put on a great movie with excellent sound and have some friends over.
Thanks,

Mezz, I don't see Blade Runner on any of those lists!!! Both regular and Director's Cut are must haves!!

As for relaxation, I have a lot of hobbies:

Gardening (my heirloom tomatoes are getting ready to pick in a few weeks and the herbs are taking over the front flower bed!!!)

Astronomy (not too much lately as I have been working crazy hours and just can't seem to stay up too late)

Reading

Watching movies (sci-fi, fantasy and Computer generated are my faves though I am always in the mood for a good thriller)

Camping

Playing with the dogs

Exploring Wisconsin (finding all the fun things to do within a few hours drive of me)

For me right now it would be working out at the gym, playing my guitar, playing hockey with my son and since we just buying a new house I look forward to becoming my father and puttering around the garden!

Pete, you are right! It's a favorite. Best movie Darryl Hannah made, except maybe for Splash. Most Harrison Ford movies are pretty good, too (Witness, Concerning Henry, I. Jones 1, 2, 3, etc.)

Makes me think about others I forgot:
Saving Private Ryan
Schindler's List
Holes
Eye of the Needle
Robin and Marian (I'm a die-hard Sean Connery fan)
A Lion in Winter
Singing in the Rain (who knows why???)

Big TV but no reception.

I like home theater a lot. Seems like once or twice a year I feel the need to upgrade something. More boom. Bigger screen. The object of my latest electronics obsession is a better subwoofer. I upgraded all the other surround speakers so far this year except my sub. All-time favorite movie that drives me to to want a bigger everything? Koyaanisquatsi. Everything else is just a movie.
But I refuse to buy cable or satellite, so its movies or nothing!
What a relief! To find out after all these years that I'm not crazy. I'm just culinarily divergent...

Catching up on TV viewing - love the "how to" home improvement shows.

We go to rock concerts - new stuff - alternative rock.

Scoping out food sources and events where we live (we're only here a year).

Hanging with the pets - 3 cats, 2 dogs.

This is a fun thread to read.

I work out usually 5 days a week, which usually consists of heavy weights and cardio.

The garden has become my newest obsession. I try to get out there every day, and I've been learning a lot!

My husband and I like going for long walks with our son in the stroller. We also take hikes with him in the baby backpack.

Sitting down to read a book or watch a movie is unheard of in this house. I can't recall the last time I sat still for more than 20 minutes straight.

On the weekends, we invariably hit NYC at some point, to explore food stores or see friends.
