    I just started crocheting in January. I've made a baby blanket for my friend's grandson and i'm almost finished with a 4 leaf clover blanket in Notre Dame colors for my dad. I've made like 50 of these green and gold squares and i'm ready to be done with it and move on to my next project lol

    I'll crochet while watching tv shows or documentaries that don't require me to look up at the tv all the time haha

    I only have lazy hobbies.

    Playing guitar has fallen off, though, to make time for more Grand Theft Auto.

    You turn 50, you change things up a little.

    haha yeah i go back to video games from time to time. I still need to finish skyrim. I can't play any stringed instruments, other than the piano, but i've considered teaching myself how to play the banjo or the guitar.

    I used to be big into needlepoint.
    Still have all my stuff but just don't feel like making anything at the moment.
    My Mom tried to teach me crocheting but I had a hard time keeping count of everything.

    yeah sometimes i will get lost counting and have to go back and see how much i've done. I had considered cross stitch at first. I was thinking making vulgar cross stitch would be a great way to get rid of any pent up anger haha

    Good ol' Upstate New York!
    My favorite "lazy" hobby?

    Well, I've been curious to give sewing, knitting, crocheting a try but I haven't learned yet. Guess I'm not sure what I want to try.

    I guess my favorite lazy hobby is reading: I can stay in one place, have a handy snack/mug of green tea nearby and the only effort I have to expend is turning pages...and I'm a purist! NOTHING will ever convince me that reading on a device is better than the feel of paper between your fingertips and a book in your lap.

    PS: That vulgar cross stitch is a hoot! Thanks for sharing it.

    lol vulgar cross stitch will be my next venture if i ever get bored with crocheting. Out of sewing, crocheting and knitting, i would say that crocheting is probably the easiest but i do love sewing too.

    I used to read all the time but it can be hard to hold my interest. I can definitely see the appeal of reading being a lazy hobby though lol if my internet connection is out and i can't watch tv while i crochet, then reading is my next go-to lazy hobby.

    playing slot machines - although I suppose the walk between machines when I feel the need to switch my luck is some exercise. I play at Mohegan Sun, which is the second or third largest casino in North America, so there can be some walking. Then if I walk up a hunger there are 46 restaurants and
    bars. Plus 3 lounges with a free bar and buffet.

    Snails?

    I thought those were slugs with racing helmets on.



    EDIT:

    Have you considered an 'Angry Birds' kind of approach?

    Taking my ease, a tall cold one in hand, watching other people do the work I used to do.

    We live in a townhouse where outside stuff (lawn work, et c.) is done by a hired maintenance crew. When I was younger and raising a family, I did this stuff myself, and a hell of a lot more, but "my get-up-and-go has got-up-and went".

    Oh - my other hobby? Posting silly stuff like this.
