Peculiar Hobbies, Habits, or Pastimes

I consider myself a connoisseur of peculiar hobbies, habits, and projects. I once made a cardboard chair that I liked so much I even moved with it to another state. I constantly pick up rubbish on the street to craft wind chimes. I run my car on vegetable oil. I knit socks, but never in pairs.

Contribute something your peculiar hobby, habit, pastime, project, or trait to this journal, then pass it along. Your contribution may be a story, a description, a picture, an artifact, or any other imaginative rendering. I would like to have the journal back when it is full. If your entry is the last please contact me: my profile.

  1. This journal has ventured to its first new destination. My digital camera is not working so it would be great if someone along the way could post some pictures or scans of the journal as it develops. Enjoy!

    To have your journal or image(s) added to the site, send the information, along with a link to the Journal’s entry on BookMooch, to aliciaed (at) gmail (dot) com or renarossner (at) gmail (dot) com.

  2. Hi John!

    I’m a fellow “bookmoocher” and followed a link from the bookmooch site to your wonderful blog!

    What a great idea! I’m really excited about participating in this journaling project. :)) Thank you for creating this blog/project!

  3. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up
    and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

    • We had to close the slideshow site we were using when WordPress no longer supported the link. It meant I had to download several hundred slideshows I and previous maintainers of the site had added, in just ten days. To prevent a repetition of this we found another website where we could upload the slideshows, and link them directly to the Bookmooch page for each journal.
      Having got permission from Bookmooch’s John Buckman that is our current procedure. Clicking the underlined blue link in each journal description will take you to the Bookmooch individual page for that journal and the slideshow.
      Our new slideshow site now only supports PC additions, so another assistant of the team is working hard to keep slideshows as up to date as we can with so many journals in existence.
      Thank you for your interest.
