I'm game -- my hobby is playing classical music.  I'm a horn player in a local orchestra.  Needless to say, because of my patella break, I'm sitting out the current concert series....   :'(

Well, my hobby turned into something that I am very active in and care very much about.  I am a AAA Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician and I work with various health and law enforcement agencies to help educate parents on how to correctly install and use their child's car safety seat.  

Nearly 95% of car seats in my area are installed incorrectly, and many of these mistakes can be fatal.  That is something we work very hard to get across to the parents so that they are always sure the seat is in right.  We also promote safER practices with child passenger safety.

Art museums, shows etc.  Used to be a ceramicist

Well....most of my hobbies were sports (i.e., soccer, gymnastics, water-skiing, hiking, running, etc. etc. etc)

But now, I concentrate on my poetry. I've won lots of awards & am currently working on a book (although it's been very slooooooooooooooooooooooow).

I would also have to say that shopping is my hobby (hehe) I am addicted & love to shop since I've been injured.

I really need to have more "indoor" hobbies now that I'm disabled...
;D

Well, all of my hobbies are sport related, all taken away cuz of those stupid ACL tears. Wrestling, Soccer, Football and basketball are all knee related activities.

I have a few hobbies to do while injured. I often like to take a 1 mile walk on crutches everyday. Everyday when I wake up, I touch and kinda massage my scars. I dunno, I just kinda feel like doing it. I also keep a count of my scars. 9 on my right knee and 2 on my left knee and 2 on each shoulder.

^Weird...  ;)

hobbies?  I guess you need free time for those  ;D

I am very athletic, playing soccer, running, basketball, rollerblading.  I have also done some coaching (soccer-goalkeepers).  I am thinking about becoming a ref.

I think I now consider sleeping a hobby since I've been so busy I really don't get enough.  On my days off, I think thats what I mostly do.

I build engines :) Working on a dragster engine out in the shop right now, thankfully it doesn't require the use of my knees minus moving the occasional 300 lb engine block across the shop

Hobbies eh, does school count? I've had 7 midterms this month and another one tomorrow, I think I am turning into a book  :P

When I'm not up to my eyeballs in books I go for anything horse related... I've been going though a bit of a withdrawl lately so I've watching tapes of the big horse trials like Badminton and Kentucky Rolex  ;D I've also been working on my horse artwork and reading anything and everything horsey  ;)
