When I have free time I split it between giving my brain time off (i.e. watching netflix, or reading), feeding my news habit, enjoying the outdoors, or probably a half dozen other things some of which you can find hints of elsewhere in this profile.
When I'm outside I tend to bring my camera along to capture what I find interesting, or lovely. If you would like to see the pictures I've taken just ask, I have them posted on deviant art. Though right now I have a big backlog of photos to edit and post which I'm going to try to fix soon.
Math (It's what my PhD was in).
Cooking, I'll admit to using cookbooks but only as a rough guide, heading off trail frequently yields tastier results.
Working with my hands, I like to make random things like the FSM pictured or one of the bookshelves I have.

Or if you're happy to set out without a plan and just see where random chance takes you.
Or if you have a question you want answered, though I won't guarantee a correct or even sensical response.
Or if you know which way the white rabbit with the pocket watch went (the bugger stole my watch).
Or if you'd like to look beyond this gossamer shadow cast by the expressible.
