masturbating. the single life isn't kind to a person with my libido, especially if you're not good at picking up on chicks.

oh yeah, and booze.

and karaoke!! i almost forgot.

may as well add movies, books, and MUSIC ugh i still wonder if i'd commit suicide upon going deaf.
you know why birds don't write their memoirs? because birds don't lead epic lives, that's why. who'd want to read what a bird does? nobody. that's who.

Gotta be music. I am a 300+ GB and growing music fiend!

I have made a line item in my monthhly budget for it because I'm always looking for new or rare music (Usually jazz or indie hip-hop). God bless the foreign market! I spend on average $30 a month on mp3 purchases, maybe an additional $200-$300 on rare grooves on wax or CD every quarter.

Oh wait. “Wax” is a record. You play that on a turntable/record player.

Man, am I dating myself.

My wife would probably tell you I'm addicted to Star Trek.

But y'know, aside from the dozens of old VCR tapes from all of the ST series, some of the movies, the space dedicated to ST on my DVR's hard drive, the downloaded episodes of Enterprise, Voyager and every episode of Star Trek New Voyages (recently renamed “Phase II” ), MP3 files of the theme songs, some DVDs, so many paper- and hardback books that I need a small bookcase, having shared a few emails with George Takei (Mr. Sulu) and having an autograph from John DeLancie (“Q” ), I just can't imagine why she'd think that.

Geez, I need help… lol!

I once taught at a school where Robert Picard sent his kids. Used to work out at the same gym as him too. Now there's a nice guy.

People say that Star Trek is one of the healthiest addictions ever! How serious is it? Do you cosplay?

No, I always thought Star Trek cosplay was lame. But I do quote the show with my wife (she knows the quotes, too – I made her watch some of the shows).

I'm very partial to the Star Trek blooper reels, going all the way back to the 60s and even through Enterprise. I think they're hilarious!

If I'm feeling silly and melodramatic, I'll shout out “SPOCK!!!” for no reason whatsoever (in full “Kirk” mode). It usually gets the desired effect. lol!

Bob Picardo? The Doctor from Voyager (now on Stargate:Atlantis)? Cool.

I used to be a serious caffiene addict. 2 or 3 two liter bottles of mountain dew a day.

Now, I seem to be addicted to traditional media and “backwards” technology. I got to school to find I was the only one using a PC which I only chose because it cost about $500 less, and I'm the only one still doing their linework with a pen and brush. These kids make me feel incredibly old and outdated even though I'm barely a year or two older than most of them. So I guess I'm also kind of chronically older than I'm supposed to be.

Heyyyy… We have something in common!


I am addicted to drawing, on my schoolwork at least. Not a day goes by that you won't see me drawing all over my homework, notes, ect. The weird thing is, as soon as I get home I can never get myself to draw a thing.

If we're looking at “real” addictions, I would have to say I'm addicted for sure to caffeine.

Figurative addictions? I seem to be addicted to dating guys who just aren't that good for me. Why? Why is that? Why can't a guy who's both NICE and FUN exist!? GAH!

Oh.. and also, I'm addicted to singing to the car radio.

Hmmmm… online comics, manga, games and anime, although not all at once. I may also be addicted to solitude but then liking it and being addicted are two different things… i can stop for sometime but then it creeps up on me

Chocolate and my computer. But the internet is where all my friends are and where I earn most of my money, so it sort of balances it out. The chocolate? That's just self-indulgence.

Video Games.

I must be the opposite of everyone but I can't stand music. Espcially any modern band/artist.

I have a gun. It's really powerful. Especially against living things.
