I have an addictive personality. That is, I get addicted to things pretty easily. It's usually not a detrimental thing, because I go through a kind of cycle:
interest Addiction Burnout Boredom Go to 1 with same or new interest. There have been a lot of things... from fish tanks to gardening, moonshine to legos, running to pneumatics, and then there's the king: brewing. Some of them are healthy, and some are not. Some things stick around longer than others. Some things fade quickly. Running, for example, has been one that's been through several cycles... I am currently in the middle of step 2. Pneumatics was short lived, as was the legos obsession, both of which were nevertheless able to drain my bank account quite a bit. Brewing is always there... the burnout phase usually doesn't last very long even when it does sneak in. Fish tanks? Moonshine? Who knows...
My point is, when I get into something, I really get into it. And where am I going with this? Well, I need to get another healthy addiction, and I think I'll try to recycle "loosing weight" back into the mix. I've been through that one a few times, and once I drop a few pounds, the positive reinforcement of looking better and feeling better usually takes over. I also need another one to fill some of this spare time I've been having lately. Currently taking suggestions.

Tara: good call. I fixed my banjo last night. Had to rig up something for the 5th string tuner knob, but I think I have a working banjo again!
