Do I Have Hobbies?
Yeah, some. This does not include my computer related activities,
since I consider them as professional work. So here they come:
- I like cycling. I don't consider this as a sport activitiy, because I
use my bike to get from A to B in time (except in holiday, where it
doesn't matter how long it takes, if it is fun). Bad weather? Most of
the time it's really inapropriate clothing. If it's really bad weather
(i.e. snowing frogs) you'd better not use a car, either. Actually,
I've two bikes, a normal trecking bike for short distances and slippy
road, and a
one for longer tours.
- Reading Terry Pratchett books. If you
don't, you'll miss something.
- I also like the Journey to the West, which is very popular in Asia, and almost completely unknown here.
- The rest consists of something that either was my hobby or is
otherwise not a professional activity: I painted a comic together with
a friend, wrote a bunch of funny but unpublishable books during school
hours (with unpublishable I mean not even in the www) together with
the same friend (he stopped cooperation in the last few volumes, and
then it faded out). I lately recovered the "funny writing" talents and
combined it with my political antipacy to George W. Bush.
- The otherwise unoccupied time during going for a walk with my father
I use to discuss about
unification of gravitation theory and quantum mechanics.
I played classic guitar
(unfortunately, my guitar is now broken), and like producing
art. Before I got a computer, art means some oil paintings and lots of
pencil sketches. Now, I try to achieve producing art with
PovRay or my 3D turtle graphics. And yes, I
do take photos on holidays, like taking a photo of Zeus in his cave in
Crete (ISO 100 film, 1:4, 1/2s, rock as "tripod"). He looks a bit like
a mongolian, but the nose is like an eagle's beak:
