Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Friday Five #14

I don’t know why I do this – it’s not very punk of me to conform in such a manner, is it? – but on the other hand, it wouldn’t be very punk of me to stop just because some people might think it’s not punk of me.


1. What are your hobbies?

Hmm…. now that I think about it, I don’t really do anything – besides keeping this weblog – that I would consider a hobby as such. I love pro wrestling, but is that a hobby? I don’t have a model railway or paint Citadel miniatures or take photos obsessively…. hey, maybe I should break out my camera more often….

2. Do you collect anything? If so, what?

I have a nice collection of SST Superstore catalogues. I used to collect stamps when I was younger but then I got bored with it as it’s actually quite expensive to maintain a valuable collection.

3. Is there a hobby you’re interested in, but just don’t have the time/money to do?

<sarcasm>Oh yes, due to my current financial situation I am unable to indulge my passion for classic sports cars.</sarcasm>

4. Have you ever turned a hobby into a moneymaking opportunity?

Not yet I haven’t. I plan to though. If you could call my love of pro wrestling a hobby, then I might do this summer. Just wait and see.

5. Besides web-related stuff (burbs, rings, etc.), what clubs do you belong to?

I am a member of the Film Institute of Ireland‘s cinema club, which means I get to see uncertified art house movies at the IFC every now and again, without having to go through a whole rigmarole of on-the-spot membership that they have there to stop them getting into trouble with the law.
