Wives and hobbies (was: UNIX questions?)

First off, this goes for husbands too, since I'm sure there are women on
this list (but I don't pay much attention to irrelevancies like that).

Here's a tip: even cheaper than finding an SO with a hobby (I know what
Barbies and books can go for!) find a *good*, dedicated teacher.

You'll have evenings and weekends all to yourself while he/she does
homework, does lesson plans, etc. Of course, there are downsides -- like
getting up at 6am to drive her to school to drop off the 12page substitute
teacher plans she stayed up all night doing (and to do an hours' worth of
work) when she's too sick too go to school. 8^)

Of course, if you want understanding *and* free time, find a teacher who
collects something. That gets expensive though. (Donald Duck stuff can be
even more expensive than Barbies, and there's more of it!)
