What hobbies do Women have?

Postby offshoreoildude » Mon, 21 Jan 2013 12:36 pm

A friend was complaining his wife and the women he knows have no hobbies apart from shopping and gossiping. I sat down and wrote out my wife's hobbies - she has more than me.

My wife;

Plays piano and guitar and is continually learning new songs
Likes to learn new things to cook and bake
Teaches English three times a week as a volunteer
Is learning to ride my motorbike (the TW)
Learnt Chinese last year
Collects stamps (wtf?)
Knows enough about politics to vote intelligently enough that people ask her opinion on who to vote for
Follows politics in my home country and our current country
Reads the Economist on the toilet
Reads Scandinavian police procedural novels for fun
Corresponds in Russian and Uzbek (she studied both at college) with penpals
Writes letters in longhand (no email) to most of her family at least once a month
Watches CSI so well that she was able to run a CSI class at her last school
Takes care of our house and children and garden (within the limits of our small apt).
Supports half a dozen missionaries in prayer and finances
Tutored (on the side - unpaid) several kids to impressively high IB math scores.


Sorry my friend doesn't know any decent women.
Now I'm called PNGMK

My wife is not allowed by law to tell me what she does at work. Takes a little getting used to, but fair enough.

Meanwhile.

A cousin of mine is the top (official, i,e, she works for them) Aston Martin professional engineer in her home country, in Europe, different, but very cool, and in-line with her full-on/no-boundaries personality :)
