Thread Name: BS: Your hobby
Subject: RE: BS: Your hobby
When does something one does for amusement become a hobby? I sing, play music, shoot, fish, grow vegetables, brew beer, cook and all the general pastimes one imagines people do, but I wouldn't class any of them as a hobby.
To me the word 'hobby' is almost perjorative, with connotations of obsessive compulsion, anoraks and arrested development. But that is, of course, merely a subjective association!
