This week’s Weekly Geek is inspired by Dewey’s Knit-a-Long, a mini challenge of Dewey’s Reading Challenge. Dewey had other passions besides reading and blogging. Knitting was one of them. This made me think, what are the Weekly Geek’s other passions?
#1. What are you passionate about besides reading and blogging? For example, are you crafty (knitting, woodworking, scrapbooking, model building)? Do you cook? Into gaming (computer or board)? Sports (player or spectator)? Photography? Maybe you like geocaching, rock climbing? Or love attending events like renaissance fairs, concerts? Music? Dancing? You get the idea.
Tell us why you’re passionate about it. Post photos of what you’ve made or of yourself doing whatever it is you love doing.
I am a very avid TV watcher, in addition to my reading. My current “must see” shows include Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Chuck, The Big Bang Theory and The Office. All-time favorites include Doctor Who (my one true obsession), Star Trek (original series), any show by Joss Whedon, Seinfeld, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Fawlty Towers, Sledge Hammer….the list could go on and on for days.
I’m also a passionate University of Tennesse fan. I think passionate may be understating it a lot. If they’re on and playing I am watching. Football, baseball, basketball, softball, pick up sticks, underwater basket weaving….
And I have a passion for swimming. I swim laps daily and have joined a Master’s Swim Team to help improve my technique and physical fitness. And so I can enjoy good food…
#2. Get us involved. Link to tutorials, recipes, Youtube videos, websites, fan sites, etc, anything that will help us learn more about your interest or how to do your hobby. Maybe you’d like to link to another hobbyist whose work you admire or tell us about a book or magazine related to your interest.
#3. Visit other Weekly Geeks. Link in your post to other Geeks who’ve peaked your interest in their passion. Or maybe you might find a fellow afincionado among us, link to them.
I’m working on that…
