When you're not on ER?

How's that for a wide open question?

Sleeping? Shopping? Watching TV? Traveling? Baby sitting? Golf? Facebook? EMail? Family? Skype? Blogging? Walking the dog?

For me:
Some forums,
Country and Classical Music
Watching News,
Books on Tape,
.... and more recently: Writing on Quora..."over 200 million monthly unique visitors"

Too many things to list, really. If I had to put a number to it, I would guess that I am on ER.org every other day for about an hour....but that's pretty general. Some weeks I will go several days between visits and other weeks I might visit daily, and there isn't any rhyme or reason to when/how long I visit.

Overanalyzing, reanalyzing, obsessing, ruminating in order to make many difficult "gray-area" decisions I don't want to make, concerning an inheritance I am involved in. Ethical considerations, financial considerations, emotional considerations. ER.org is my escape!

Studying and using Italian (my new language here in Italian-speaking southern Switzerland, canton of Ticino)

Reviewing poems for my wife's book of collected poetry, which I am shepherding to publication

Listening to music on my semi-audiophile level system (and trying to persuade my wife that more and better is always better)

Reading (history, literature, poetry, art history)

Exploring Switzerland and northern Italy in day trips with my wife

Doing most of the chores that my wife did the many years that I was working for our paycheck (she retired too, from that life of home maintenance and husband support, a life she never expected to live)

Prepping for our next travel adventure (there is always a next one)

-BB
