Boring but Interesting to you!

So. Masters of the mundane. I know some people are critical but we are not all doom or gloom and we have lives outside our diagnosis so thus the boring but interesting to you thread!

My contribution. Got an air fryer and gawd. You can do chips without dipping them in a litre of fat and they come out so good. Doing lots of things and enjoying so to healthier chip eating my boring but interesting thing is my gawddamn air fryer…

Yours?

I am nearly finished changing all my furniture to black and white in my flat.

When I moved here 5 years ago, I had all different furniture, but now it all matches and the flat looks nice and modern now

Very happy with it

Piano tuning. I can’t do it myself, but I have a piano and the hour or so it takes the tech to tune it is heavenly. I can listen to that process all the live long day.

My pipe collection and mason jars of tobacco.
Got thirteen smoking pipes and have 17 nicer pipes tucked away in my closet.
A weird old-fashioned hobby, but I enjoy it.
Not gonna buy any more pipes for quite some time, I’ve already spent way too much money despite most of the being heavily discounted.
Got a pay off my credit and stop buying stuff.

Probably not everyone’s thing, but I love watching insects. Caterpillars are fascinating, as well as moths and beetles and pretty much any other insect you can name… Except mosquitoes. They must die

I bought some eyebrow makeup and have been practicing a little everyday.

I’m getting better, but it’s a slow process.

I’m passionate about knitting. I learn reciprs quickly, and sometimes experiment with techniques.
And don’t get me started on a rant about yarns!

I bought a program called Sharpen AI from Topaz Labs. It works so well that I’m wondering if black magic is involved. I’m able to recover shots that are slightly out of focus and it competely fixes diffraction on shots where I had to stop down to a small aperture. Bloody amazing.

A bunch of non-photographers have no idea what I’m talking about.

Like @eighteyedspy23 I am interested in tobacco pipes. I have a rotating pipe rack with about ten pipes plus numerous types of tobacco that I cellar.

Was starting to make my own pipes but the banjo kind of stole that process.

Also I love cigars. I’m so nerdy about this stuff that I even bought a history book of tobacco throughout the ages. It’s a fun read.

:grinning:

@velociraptor the software must have incredible analytics built into it. I’ve never seen one that worked that well before. Do you have examples?
