Thursday 13 - Just Relax...

Thirteen Things about Aginoth

It's Thursday again....how did that happen?

So what shall it be today

Oh and btw it's LMB's 3rd Birthday today

13 things I do to relax...

1. Play Eve Online, OK yes I am still addicted to this MMOG (Massively Multi-plyer Online Game)...for those who don't know it's a Space trading/fighting game owing much to the old Elite Gasmes of the 1980's

2. Read...mostly Fantasy and Science Fiction, but also a far smattering of Histories and books on the English language and etymology

3. Shoot my Longbow...planning to get a Target set up in the garden soon, currently shooting on re-enactments or in a friends garden. It's a 40lb draw Hickory and Lemonwood traditional style English longbow btw.

4. Sit on the Beach watching the clouds, or at least trying too as I keep an eye on the kids. Sometimes I attempt to combine with Number 2 but it rarely works :o)

5. Have a Bag of Fish and Chips from Papa's Fish andChip Shop in Weston-super-Mare...yum...best Chip Shop ever, anywhere. Prefereably combined with Number 4.

6. Cooking for friends and family. I really enjoy cooking, but I like to have plenty of time to be able to do it properly.

7. Holding BBQ's for friends and Family...almost but not the same as 6

8. Playing Rough and tumble with my Children...must remember to remove all change, keys etc from pockets first, because they'll have it awaywith anything shiny that falls out of my pockets...bunch of magpies :o)

9. Singing songs with my children

10. Playing my flageolet / Whistle, well it's a 13th century fore-runer of the Soprano/descant recorder, more akin to a pennywhistle or Irish Fipple Flute. Mine is Wooden with 6 finger holes no thumb hole, Key of D.

11. Cuddling up with Mrs.A in front of a good film after the kids are in bed.

12. Taking Mrs.A out to our Favourite restaurant, Flute de Paris in Weston-super-Mare.

13. blogging :o)

Fish and Chips sound so good! Can't get decent ones here in the USA! I like 11 & 12. Mine is up. Happy Thursday!

I really wish someone would open up a good fish & chip place here in the US. Right now I have to settle for Long John Silver's. ;)

Have a happy.

I don't do the games or fantasy stuff but I can identify with #13.

My TT is up.

You can find a lot of ways to relax... that's awesome! It's lunch time. Now I'm hungry for fish and chips. Yum!

Happy 3rd Birthday, LMB!

Happy T13! Thanks for stopping by!

What an interesting and fun list to read. I can almost see you getting tumbled by your magpies while they giggle gloriously.

A very good idea for a T13, indeed. I especially liked #'s 4 & 8. [smile] As for me, I'd have to say that I implement your #2 most often, for relaxation. I love to read. I'm currently reading a Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel and a romance. I've been switching back and forth depending upon my mood that day.

Happy 3rd Birthday to LMB! Thanks for stopping by my T13 today. Have a terrific Thursday, Aginoth!

My fiancé and I are both fish & chips fans (and we do have good ones in the USA... at least in New England!) It's generally the first thing he tries on the menu-- if they don't serve good fish & chips, then we tend to not go back again.

Sitting on the beach watching the sky and ocean is one of my all time favorites.

As far as multiplayer games goes i'd recommend gildwars, addictive as well. As far as sci fi fantasy goes i'd recommend anything goodkind :)
