Obviously, there are going to be a lot of gamers here :) But what other nerdy hobbies do we partake in?

Personally, I knit, I read like a fiend, and I have been teaching myself over the last 12 months to sew. Not doing too badly either!

What are your nerdy hobbies?

I write, read sci-fi, go to movies, tinker with technology (or anything with pretty blue lights :lol: ) and in general just live life.
Read lots and IMAGINE more!!

I get really into Halloween. My mind is an exploding singularity of creativity that time of year. And I can make anything if given enough cardboard and tape.

I love to read. I especially like getting into a good mystery and trying to figure out who did it! I also like making jewelry.

Birdwatching... there is some serious nerdiness in that hobby. LOL And yes, I'm one of those people who keeps obsessive bird lists, too. :P

But like a dream come true
That's still inside of you

Other than gaming my nerdy hobbies would be: reading, drawing, and painting (I am an art nerd). I also get really into mythology, folklore, and religion. I get lost in time and can spend countless hours reading online or in a library about those topics.

Hmmmm....I love photography, collecting anything disney and I love researching stuff. My friends always come to me to help with research on stuff.

I wish that I could sew!!!! I usually end up stitching my clothes by hand!
