5. hmmmm, i seem to be repeating myself here, but i've wondered what your favorite book and boardgame, and hobby are?
Well, I'd have to say my favorite book(s) remain The Lord of the Rings; all four including the Hobbit. Haven't read 'em for a while, though.
I really don't play boardgames (or any games not on the computer) too much these days, but I'd still say go or chess. Apples to Apples or Eat Poop You Cat don't count, I suppose.
Hobby? Technically speaking, Shockwave counts as a hobby. Otherwise, I'd have to say my hobby involves being an irascible curmudgeon.
