friday five (avocations)
April 26, 2002 10:27 AM

I've replaced the original Friday Five word of the day (hobby) with another word I find less icky sounding. In case anyone was wondering.

1. What are your avocations?

Theatre. Rabble-rousing. Throwing lavish if poorly attended parties. Web design. Bad photography (not to be confused with bat photography) [I hope someone gets my pathetic Mac Wellman joke. If you get it, you'll win something of some sort.].

2. Do you collect anything? If so, what?

No. When I was a kid, I collected porcelain dolls and glass animals (itty bitty painted animal figurines). But I don't collect anything now.

3. Is there an avocation you're interested in, but just don't have the time/money to do?

Music. Painting. These are things I know how to do but rarely have time for. I play the harp (badly) and would like to get back in practice at least enough that I can remember how to tune the blasted thing. But there are too many other, more important, things to be done. My harp playing has little chance of improving the world.

4. Have you ever turned an avocation into a moneymaking opportunity?

You could call the web design thing moneymaking, I suppose. Though it costs me much more in time than I ever make from it, I've at least used it to generate money for good causes.

5. Besides web-related stuff, what clubs do you belong to?

Do people still belong to clubs? Really? I had no idea. I belong to the Green Party and the Project Management Institute. They're not exactly clubs, though.
