Boredom Hobbies

Closet Hobbies!?
[/COLOR]

Do you have a closet hobby that you only resort to in boredom?

Today was titled "The Most Depressing Day of the Year" because of taxes, and the end of holidays. For me, it was boring as hell. So, after school my bro and I went over to the local Wally's World (Wal-Mart for all you city folk) to find something stupid to do. We ended up purchasing B-Daman "Direct Hit Battle" marble shooter robot things.

[Allow me to diverge. I read B-Daman in a Japanese Jump my friend had in the 3rd Grade. Why in God's name are they just getting here?]

We put them together (with a little nastalga, we use to make Model Kits together) and had a blast messing around with them. Now, I am a cynical hardass 14year old and he is a 17year old academic jock. We still had a blast shooting marbles at each other.

So I had to think about the other stuff I do when I am bored, but I really don't tell people about.

+BeyBlades: Damn. There is nothing like drop spinning these things into a tin trash can and watching them rip each other apart.

+YuGiOh: I don't play this that much anymore, but sometimes I dust off my cards to whip a newbie into shape.

Hey, I spilled, so you should too!
I fell off the wagon and now I can't stop.

Hentai games.

I think I'll go back to it now, since my Japanese language script for Windows XP is finally installed...

I look up pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal.  If I find ten with his shirt off my friend burns me another CD of random ska bands.

No.  Really.  I'm not shitting you here.  Save Ferris owns your soul.

I'm obsessed with Franchise Mode in Madden 2006.

I make decks of any of the card games I ever got into: Magic, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu Yu Hakusho, Harry Potter, Dragonball Z, etc.

The sad thing is that I feel bad when I can't find anybody to try the decks out on. ;__;

Magic is old school. Ask tama about that. His addiction was obiterated by WoW. Sad really.

Oh, and if anyone IS looking to buy some Magic Cards, all my stuff is for sale. Try eBay in the next few days.

I have stuff from Ice Age to stuff from 2005. I don't know the set names. I'll post a list of some random cards in my auction. I have a few good things.

Actually, it would be easier if you told me what you needed.

And I challenge you all to a game against my Zombie Deck.
