Let'* see here, Bonnevilles of course, FOOTBALL (playing and watching), eating (yummy), sleeping, that'* pretty much it.

Oh, me and one of my good friends LOVE to blow things up with fireworks and what not in our backyards. So far we have blown up a few acoustic guitars (don't worry, they were dead and worthless), some cd players, calculators. Our next work in progress is blowing a big jawbreaker up in an old microwave i have sitting in my basement. We also like to build contraptions just for fun. We built a 15 foot tall trebuchet. We launched a flaming pumpkin about 30-50 feet. Oh boy that was sweet. So pretty much I'm a pyro, but im an experienced one.

Are you a member of the Train Collectors Association, TCA?

Meh.. too lazy to read thru the whole 4-5 pages so here it is

R/C cars.. no Bonneville or Parsianne bodies and never had time to look to customize one.. and too expensive.. so not much into it now

Chasing.. no.. not legs ( in public ) but police/fire/ ETF/K-9 wat you see on cops style chases.. good ol scanner will let ya know wats around.. hee hee.. just need a hi optical nite vision zoom next.. but at least I got the big ol comfy Bonnie to do it in.

Women use to be a hobby.. but I've settled down now hahahaha ( look at first definitions of chasing ) lmao !!!!

Video Games.. thats more of an addiction...
