    So yeah. What do you guys like to do for fun? When I'm not on the computer I am typically with the kiddos, watching movies, or cooking :)

    When I'm not at work I'm with my son and gf.. Then when I have free time I study. I wish I could get time to start gaming again.

    Most Fridays and Saturday's i'll go to the local and meet friends there for alcoholic refreshment.

    Also learning to Skydive, so every now and again I've got a lesson which is usually a whole day event.

    So right. We have to make time for the important things in life. It's way to busy to get bogged down with the every-day stuff!!

    I used to run the old XFire client, it told me exactly how many hours, I turned it off when I had reached over 2000 hours played.

    Leeeeerrroooyyyyy Jenkinsssssssss, that video cracks me up!

    PS4 - Destiny is very addictive at the moment, Walking (With the Dog, we have loads of Farm's and fields near us), Watching the Football or any sports really, Cooking and Kickboxing (Though I am a bit rubbish at the moment).
