How many Hobbies do you have?

Hobby = Occupation that is not one's main business

Things you have done for a long time and are likely to continue doing

Some of Mine are:
Play Guitar
Photography
Model Steam engines/boats
Model Rail (Swiss)
Hill Walking
Gardening

I'm interested in what AO owners do apart from Alfa Romeos and Driving

Re: How many Hobbies do you have?

Is "music" really a hobby unless you are making music???


Anyway, I have my Alfas and Computers

Not as much gaming but programing etc. too

Re: How many Hobbies do you have?

Why not listening to music as a hobby

Oh........................

and when I said "only Alfas" I, needless to say, wasn't being disparaging

Re: How many Hobbies do you have?

Because, you don't actually do anything..... Collectin music (in CDs, MP3 etc..) is a hobby, but just listening to it can't be classified as a hobby IMHO...

and besides, 99% of the worlds population would say their hobbies include music, so why does it have to be even mentioned....

But some go to the opera or a symphony concert regularily
I have even heard talk of people going to "pop" concerts on a regular basis
Surely selecting and building a collection of CD's would count as a hobby as would just listening to it(IMO)

Re: How many Hobbies do you have?

If it's done like collecting any other things then yes.... like people who collect stamps are considered to hobby stamp collecting....

And if you regulary go to concerts then it might be a hobby, but just listening music at home is not a hobby!

Re: How many Hobbies do you have?

Should we be worried that one of your hobbies is cleaning Alfenia, but that none of them is driving her?

Re: How many Hobbies do you have?

Cycling (mostly off-road but I have a road bike as well)
Running
Paintball
Drumming
Gaming (waiting for my PSP to be delivered next Thursday )

I reckon my Alfa counts as two, sometimes I like to drive it, sometimes I like to spend all day cleaning & polishing it

Re: How many Hobbies do you have?

What's this poll/thread about then

I am surprised no-one said Forums or alike ... aren't they classed as a hobby, like computers, internet and gaming

Add that one to my profile dear Alfagj
