    I will put down a few appropriate categories, but feel free to chime in. ;)

    I skateboard and play guitar for fun. (Tensor trucks and Ibanez guitars rule).

    What do you mean, "besides using a Mac?" What else is there?:confused:

    Well, there we go. Some people get up, maybe wash up or eat, use the Mac/iPod/iPhone/shop iTunes, get tired and go to bed late at night and repeat this ritual every day. :)

    Without the computer, I'd have to go back to using magazines. :(

    What about swimming, eating, listening to music, and drinking?

    Using magazines for what...not the proverbial articles, I'll bet. ;)
    Reading a real book for me.

    The thread and poll titles seem to imply that I must thoroughly enjoy using computers. Eek.

    I would put swimming under individual sports, but listening to music, sans iPod, is a good one. I actually still love CDs.

    And drinking, well, Diet Coke is my weakness. I used to like beer a lot. But as for Diet coke, they must put something illegal in it. :)

    Music (listening to and playing guitar/piano), writing, reading, I enjoy playing games (you know, the old board-based models), but that's pretty seldom these days. If I had to I'd get along very well without a 'puter (and sometimes wish I could just forgo them altogether). But being as I have one and work on it... having a Mac is sure dang nice.

    I like just sitting and talking as well...

    Summer Months I like to ride the Harley. After adding a second job I really don't have time to spare unless its on my iMac. Then I can ride the Harley to work. I do need to make more time working out, but you all know how that goes. I did start running. It's gonna take a while to not get winded so fast, but after a couple of weeks I see improvement. Hopefully fat will slide right off! :D

    I'm guessing sitting drinking coffee all day falls under the unmentionables?

    I didn't vote on anything since for the most part what I like to do wasn't included,
    running/exercising
    reading a book
    Camping and hiking
    Spending time with my family.
    Use my PS3 from time to time

    I guess you can say that when I'm home, I don't spend a ton of time on my Mac.

    When not involved in computer related entertainment I'm either at work or spending time with my family. Family time consists of enjoyable activities some of which can be talked about, like playing games with my sons (PS3, matchbox cars, super heroes, etc), and some of which can't be talked about, like playing games with my wife (use your imagination). Let's just say my family knows how to have fun. :D

    The usual things for a growing boy/young adult; Wii, Xbox, adventures, films, making stuff (this usually takes priority over the playing of stuff).

    So there isn't any anti-Christ, Illuminati, Republican, Democrat, addictive liquid, Mason, multi-national Monsanto, take over the world conspiracy around Diet Coke and its secret contents? Whew, I thought I was evil. ;)

    I still have the bulk of my nearly 250+ CD collection. I've downloaded quite a lot, but only got rid of the albums I hardly ever listened to. It feels safer, somehow, having a solid backup. :)
