I'm curious about what people do when they've got free time.

I learn Wing Chun kung fu, I go to the gym, I draw my comic strips, browse the internet, play computer games, and I'm currently planning a novel. I'm pretty busy! When I get time I also paint, but that's more of an irregular thing.

How about you? Is there anything you'd like to start doing?

I climb too, frog! Do you happen to know what a 4c is in US terms (because I am scratching my head)?

I also cook (makin the illest chocolate chip cookies as well as assorted, mostly indian-flavored veg items) and sing. I play the viola poorly and send letters to people I don't know (many thanks to Feral Polyglot (I think it was him) for making Postcardx known to me.) I read like a fiend and learn about public transit systems compulsively. Knitting, writing and sculpturing make the list as well--I basically can't sit still and get really bored watching TV. Is anyone else the same way?

elphaba2, a UK 4C is a US 5.8 according to this link.. What kinda climbing you do, indoor/ outdoor? if outdoor what kinda rock?

I also did my first 4A lead climb last week (indoor), which is bit more scary because you have to clip rope into secure points as you ascend, and also the potentiality for falling further distance is greater.

It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.
