Hello, Alex.

What do you like to do as your hobby?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/04 22:32, 2017/11/02 21:33

Hi, Vladimir. I like to read books.
What is your hobby or hobbies is your hobby or may be you've got several ones?
Do you have a hobby?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/05 22:21

I have a lot of hobbies. Among them are boxing, listening to music, sunbathing, jogging.

What is your opinion about audio books?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/05 23:12, 2017/11/02 21:11

I'm much more of a reader than a listener a book reader than a book listener. I better understand a text understand a text better when I see it in front of my eyes. Also audio books impose their own pace on you me and there is always a problem of finding the right passage.

Is there (Do you have) the favorite one among your hobbies?
Do you have a favorite hobby?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/06 20:48

I find audio books very comfortable for me and I have never had any problems of finding the right passage within a book.
Do you spend all your spare time on reading paper books?
Do you think that caring for one's health may be a hobby?

I have palate for analysing human behaviour and consider it one is of my major passions.

AlexAlex, 2017/10/11 22:32, 2017/11/02 21:14

I more often read e-books than paper books. As for health caring I pretty sure I'm pretty sure it may well be a hobby. I believe the same can be said about any kind of activity.

What do you think is the hallmark of a hobby?
How do you allocate your time among the your hobbies?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/15 23:29, 2017/10/15 23:30

I think the hallmark of a hobby is getting pleasure from some regular activity.
I allocate my time among my hobbies without thinking much about it.

What do you think is another hallmark of a hobby?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/16 23:11, 2017/11/02 21:14

Another hallmark follows from the first one: it's a kind of activity people willing to do for free.
Do you practice the hobbies just for getting pleasure or may be maybe you set some specific goals to achieve?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/19 22:48, 2017/10/20 18:00

I practice hobbies that give me use some use.

Do you collect anything?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/19 23:20

I used to collect CDs until all the music moved to the Internet.

What kind of use do you get?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/20 17:55, 2017/10/20 17:56

The use is when the things I do are useful for other people. For example, I think that building this site http://champions-club.ru/index.htm is the use I speak about.

Are you collecting anything at present?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/24 22:17, 2017/11/02 21:16

Great! Is this site the only one you build as a hobby or are there more sites?

I don't collect anything. And you?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/28 08:39, 2017/10/28 08:39

There is one more site I build.
When music transferred to the Internet, you stopped listening to music, didn't you?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/29 22:09

I still listen to music on the Internet.
Do you collect anything as a hobby?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/29 22:31

I collect nothing.

What did you do with your CD collection?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/29 22:55

I threw it out.

How much of nothing did you collect?
Have you ever stopped practicing hobby for any reason?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/30 07:01, 2017/10/30 07:02

If I start anything so I do not give up.

Don't you think that listening to music on the Internet is also collecting things?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/30 21:45

If you mean virtual collection, I agree.

So once a hobby, always a hobby, without options?

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/31 18:03

Yes and no.

Can a person have no hobby?

AlexAlex, 2017/10/31 21:47, 2017/11/02 21:23

Of course. So a person may not have a job. Neither can a person have a job

It was nice to see you again. Bye!

Vladimir LopatinVladimir Lopatin, 2017/10/31 21:51

So was it to see you.
