...you're out with people and they ask "so what do you do for fun?" and you don't know how to reply.

I don't think going on the internet and sitting home alone is a very interesting hobby.

Sigh...:(

But at least the night was fun. I don't know what impression I made, but I was out at least. Isolation stinks. Heard some good poetry and met nice people. Spent too much money on food and drinks, but hey...it was fun. I should start writing again.

Yes you should and you should share it with other people. In real life although here is nice to if you want to share your stuff. But getting out among people is healthy. I tend to lose ground when I isolate my self. I need the feed back of eye contact, facial expressions, body language if you know what I mean.
Also I need to help me remember to comb my hair, brush my teeth, shower, change clothes which I tend to let slide staying home in front of a monitor/keyboard. But that is just me.

Andy,

It's great you're breaking the isolation. It's a risk, yes, but what in life that's worth having comes without risks? I positively hated getting out and around again there for awhile, but man, am I ever glad I stuck with it!

Much love,
Larry

people out in public ask me that question too sometimes - I never know what to say...

it is good for us to get out into the world though - we need to see that there is good in the outside world

I tell them that I like to get stoned, eat chitos, and watch Star Trek. That pretty much changes the subject pretty fast.

I don't have much of a life outside of work. I go fishing sometimes and do woodworking. To be honest nobody has asked me that in a long time.

I spend many a night right here on the computer playing Duke Nukem3D and watching the Sci-Fi channel ... its fun for me :-)

I just say I'm a dirty old man, emeritus (arthritis and all that) then the questions stop if they're shocked; but if they aren't, the fun begins.

When they become pushy and won't go away, I simply ask in a loud voice: "You did WHAT with a goat?"


Lunacy helps in difficult situations.

At my employer, we are re-building the sales team. So during these days there are a ton of new people and many, many occasions of "team-building" events (Rob says with a cringe). And at these many, many round-table and social events, we are to "tell something about what you do on weekends"..."tell us someting no one here knows about you"...or my favorite "what was your biggest event of 2007?" You get the idea.

Those of you who know me already know the answers to those...but in reality, I have to come up with total bullshit stories or find a way to deflect the attention on the the next poor shmoe.

You bring up such interesting life-topics Andy!

i know I have no life when...I say 'You know you have no life '

I know I have a life when I go easy on myself and say its ok not to have a 'life' others expect me to have.

i know i have no life when...
i become bored.

thank god, this has never happened.

i know i have no life when...
chronic pain has decreased the quality of experience to the point where my consciousness cannot conceive beyond my own suffering and i wish for and welcome the thought of death.

this has happened to me several times.
