Computers. I've been working (and playing) at programming them since 1978 and haven't got bored yet. I listen to music -- even when nobody else can hear it -- and read, often with a cat as a helper. I enjoy photography and playing about with images digitally. I've had a long-time interest in sports simulation games, both as board games and on a computer. In the summer of 2004, I (kind of) sang and (theoretically) played a couple of songs at a house filk as the first musical performance of my adult life. Filk has now taken over a great amount of my spare time, especially since FKO 15, inspiring me to pick up a guitar, write songs, and generally reach a new level of obsession about musical things. In March 2008, I started speculating on whether it would be a good idea to record a CD of original filk material. With the release of Rain on the Sand in early 2009 I completed a project that was not even a dream a few years earlier.
