Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I build computers (haven't in a while, but some projects are about to get done)
play games online (eve online, battlefield2/battlefield vietnam, half-life2 mostly)
chill in front of the hi-fi with some good music (recently it's been some Sinatra, odd for a metalhead, aren't I?)
Sometimes I even write, but that's quite rare and it's usually when I feel very strongly about something....which is something that hasn't happened in a very long time....I find it hard to really feel much either way at all sometimes. All I will say, when properly inspired, I can put out some amazing poetry.
Oh, and I'm household OCP....I spend insane amounts of time trying to layout my place as I would like it to me.....sadly I rarely act on the ideas.

Here's what we do most weekends from April to October....


That's an old picture, but it's the only one I could find on my computer right now. It's not even the same color these days. Besides cycling, I can't really think of too many other things we do on a regular basis.

We used to do the lake thing a lot too but we sold our boat last year because we just weren't using it as much as we use to. Loved to waterski, but since I had my little health problem I can't really do that anymore.
