How do you 'have fun'?

: )  Quite happily, thank you.

Karen, 21

There are so many ways for me to have fun! Take yesterday, for example, after getting some laundry done, we decided to take the inflatable boat out on the pond and just drift around for awhile, enjoying the sun and warm breeze. We were able to see fish swimming, turtles sunning themselves and mother with baby geese landing in the water. After that we just sat in the yard for awhile and watched birds at the feeder and in the trees...all this while cooking a roast. After dinner we took the bigger boat out and did some fishing. On an evening like last night, with the beautiful weather and a good

I find it difficult to have a balance of fun and work

Well, that's kinda a broad question. I like to have fun in many ways. It might be will my friends sitting and chatting or at a party. Or I enjoy sitting by myself.

It varies from day to day. If the weather is really nice, a walk in the park is great. If it's cold and snowy I like to sit in the house with a fire in the fireplace and my cat on my lap and read. Right now, I'm having a ball working on my genealogy.

By being with the people whose company I most enjoy. For me, having fun is more dependent on my companions than on the activities we undertake.

I hang out with my friends.. go to parties, go see movies, go to restaurants, to clubs, go shopping...

that's a tough one. being smarter would be an asset, but would fooling with a person's DNA make them less of themselves? Would you really just be mutating your child into someone else?

I go hang out with my friends (or just hang out at the theater where all my friends work), or I listen to music and drive around, or I go to the mall-I have fun doing pretty much anything.

There are a million ways to "have fun" I don't follow any prescribed chain of events or anything. Depends on my mood. Sometimes all it takes is a great conversation and a six pack for me to have the time of my life, and other times it takes a freakin' three ring circus to even get me to crack a smile.

Uh, well, what I would consider fun, most people would not...but then, I have always called myself a freak...and here is just another reason to add to my freakdom...anyhow, I consider writing fun(like, writing my unpublished novels...and editing them)...I consider reading fun...like, about ancient times (particularly ancience Greece...Rome...Vikings, and Egypt)....and also, science fiction, and classical literature...of course, I love hanging out with my animals...Dilly Willy, Lars, Chunk, Morph, Cam-corder, Iris, and Nike...

I think I have the most fun with my brothers and sisters, our spouses, neices and nephews. My family has perfected the art of hanging out and being silly. I laugh the hardest when I'm with my family.

Well, depends on what is going on in my boring town. This past weekend was Gay & Lesbian Pride Fest 2001. And though, I am not either, I was there to support, and had a damn good time.

Anjel, 20

I read, do a bit of gardening, a bit of gossiping--on and off line--and occasionally manage a bit of creative cooking.

Jill, 60

The best way to have fun to me is just the little things like listening to music or watching movies with my best friend or boyfriend.

Fun? What's that?

Meet friends, dance, listen to music, go out for a long walk together, take a day off to go strolling in another town, and, on a very lucky day, be a-huggin' and a-lovin' and treating someone we-ell... <g> http://boston.abuzz.com/interaction/s.201818/

Growing up in the 80's, I would say that "have fun" and "Wang Chung" are the same thing. The problem is that I just haven't figured out how to Wang Chung. So I guess, I just don't have fun.


I have fun by playing on the internet.
