Booking through thursday #1...

A weekly questionnaire found on Booking Through Thursday...

Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?

In the last couple of years, so much of my time was focused on work. I was serving with AmeriCorps*NCCC (kind of a domestic Peace Corps) and was working all the time, doing all sorts of national service and volunteer work. But I guess that's not really leisure...

I love movies. I wish I had a chance to go to the theater more, but I don't always have the money or the opportunity. Or the company. I can't stand going to the movies by myself. Since I can't always be at the theater, I have an extensive DVD collection, although recently I think I own more TV shows on DVD than movies.

My TV Show DVDs:

ER - seasons 1-4
- full series
Gilmore Girls - full series
The OC - season 1 (which I'm slightly ashamed of, but love anyway)
That 70's Show - seasons 1-2
The West Wing - seasons 1-4

Next I want to start collecting Happy Days.

Other than that, I have some small hobbies. I like to cross stitch. Despite being almost 23, I like to color. I have an extensive collection of very nice Dover coloring books, which no one else is allowed to color in, only me. Both of these, I generally do while watching movies. I used to be a performer. I used to sing and do ballet. I still sing all the time, but haven't had the opportunity to perform with either of these talents since high school ended. I like to write. I have a few screenplays in the works, mostly adaptations of some of my favorite books or stories. I'm starting to learn to like tennis.

Hmmm...that's a lot more information than anyone probably wanted...

Hey, I'm 36 and if I had the chance, I'd colour every day! Love it. :)

This week's BTT question was really fun. It's interesting to see what everyone likes doing with the rest of their free time.
