Aside from the obvious, Sherlock, Dr. Who, Reading, Writing, Photography, Cats. Can't draw/paint/sew worth a darn, but Greatly admire those who do with skill.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
High School, *mumble* years ago. Best friend's older brother came home from college and told us, "you HAVE to read these!" Fell in love within the first five pages of Fellowship, and it's been a lifelong love affair ever since.
Favorite Tolkien character:
That...keeps changing. I'll go back and read something, or see a scene in the movies, and they become my favorite for a while, then it changes again.
