While visiting my brother, he rounded up all his old painted minis and let me borrow the box of them to share on the blog.
From Left to Right: Ninja (Assassin) with Sword (FA12), Anti-Hero 01-335(b), Barmadon Rogue 61-060
No set of minis is ever complete, without a Ninja! Or a group of Ninjas! And speaking of cool-ness, I would sometimes buy minis just because of their name. “Anti-Hero”, must be cool, right?! So that could have been one I bought and gave to my brother. “Barmadon Rogue”, never knew this one had a sort of official sounding name. He was usually just used as a street thug, something or other. I always really liked that mini though.
Tangent – Hobbies
Wait Faust, the last Old Mini Monday was about hobbies too…!?
Um yea, we can have lots of hobbies and lots of discussion about them…no?
All right, all right. This time around, I wanted to take it to the flip side.
What hobbies are you not interested in?
Sure, some of us have many hobbies, some are more selective, but there are tons of hobbies out there, that we aren’t doing. Maybe a few that you never, ever want to do (like TIM’s housework).
Being in nature is okay and all. Exercising, I have to have the energy and mindset to do it though. And usually a definitive goal to meet. Walking for long hours, just up a hill, and seeing a tree, and oh, there is another tree….isn’t that the same tree I just saw?…doesn’t really do it for me. And then we get to the top, and ok, nice view, for maybe 5 minutes, and….back down.
But still, I could do it, and kinda enjoy it, on occasion. Yet, my last partner managed to totally sour me on it. One, we HAD to go hiking every weekend. Two, we had to drive at least an hour or so, just to to get to a spot to hike for an hour or two. Three, there was lots of complaining on her end. We tried camping a few times, and every single time we went to put up the tent, a huge (mostly one-sided) argument ensued. Funnily enough, the couple times we brought a friend along, she argued with or complained about that friend instead. Which seemed lame, but made me happy I wasn’t the target for once. Just seemed to be something in her nature. Long story short, it made what is an ‘okay’ hobby initially into a nightmare, and now it’s something I’m just not keen on doing.
And just so you all know, camping with my Wife, turned out to be a lot of fun. With the kids though, a bit of a different story.
Again, was a hobby of the person I mentioned earlier. But I just haven’t had any particular interest in knitting. It does have a definable end goal, which is good for me. Maybe because I was pretty allergic to Wool products as a kid, or I just don’t really like the texture of knitted stuff, but likely a hobby I won’t be venturing into.
Just find that a mainly boring waste of my time. I feel like that with a lot of TV programming in general, but with Sports I would rather play than watch.
Oh, I have my collections, but there are a lot of things I (luckily) have no desire to collect. Stamps, Barbies, My Little Ponies, etc.
Kill. Me. Now. Weeding has to be one of the worst things ever. Growing your own veggies is kind of cool, but ugh. Plus I have the opposite of a green thumb. Yea, this should have been the first thing I even listed.
Just can not stand birds. Maybe because my Mom had damned tweeting, chirping, poop/food flicking little birds. They did nothing but make messes and noise (two of my un-favorite things).
Well, that’s that. Building my own little list, has made me curious to read what you all have to say!
