  1. More than the average person would. I have 15 pens and 28 pipes. It's a start I guess.
  2. I'd say my main hobbies involve collecting. I seem to go through phases with what I'm interested in collecting from time to time. Here lately, my interest is in collecting fountain pens and bottled inks (hence why my occupation subtitle reads "ink junkie"). I've slowed down on that, though, because they ain't exactly cheap. Granted, I'm not spending $9K+ on one pen (that's a bloody down-payment on a car! ), but after a while, $20 here and $35 there adds up. The pens I've collected thus far are all new, but some day I'd like to get an old, vintage pen from way back in the day, maybe early 20th or late 19th century... if I can find and afford one. I also collect stationery, because hey. Why not? I enjoy the feel of writing on paper and making my own personal marks on it. Other items I like to collect are tobacco pipes, which I have also slowed down on for the same reason as fountain pens, only they tend to be more expensive on average than a pen does. I imagine it's only a matter of time before I find something else that I develop an interest in and collect. I would like to collect postage stamps if there was more variety in them (or rather, it wasn't all junk-mail and credit card solicitations filling up my mailbox). Keeping a personal journal is something I've been doing for years on and off, but since I started getting fountain pens, I've been making entries just about every other day or so, instead of only once every three to six months at a time (gotta find some use for all those pens and ink).
  3. Jim Croce - Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels)
  4. Sometimes, I think I would love being retired. If I ever win the lottery, that’ll be the first thing I do. Guess since I don’t play it, I should probably keep my day job for now.
  5. I make it a point to watch Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop at least twice a year, each. I have a lot of titles on my re-watch list.... but sadly, it's a full-blown struggle to even watch titles for the first time here lately. Time constraints and other things that demand my attention..... you know, all that jazz. Sooner rather than later, I'm going to make a better effort to watch more anime. Things can't stay insanely busy forever...... right?
  6. Fünfhundertfünfundfünfzig (555)
  7. Im Westen nichts Neues (All Quiet on the Western Front) on NetFlix. I highly recommend it. There are a couple of scenes that are difficult to watch, but the film is well-made.
  8. I think, yes. It's been awhile either way. Blade Runner Black Out 2022
  9. If the early bird gets the worm, I'll sleep in until there are pancakes. What does a nosey pepper do? It gets jalapeño business.
  10. "Age is a very high price to pay for maturity." - Tom Stoppard
  11. This book on Amazon seems to have a lot of good reviews.
  12. My drive to and from my place of business is nice and short, less than 5 minutes.
