I'm curious as to what line from Raising Arizona would come up during a job interview. :-)

I disagree with Tom that ones hobbies are *never* related to tech writing... obviously, there is going to be a connection sometimes. But I wouldn't list any hobbies on a resume unless you knew it was related to the particular job (in fact, I probably wouldn't list it on the resume at all, but mention it in the cover letter instead).

Released on my own recognizance...

I've only ever mentioned hobbies in reply to ones that the interviewer
mentioned. For example, someone once quoted a line from my favorite movie
Raising Arizona and I told him that I had just bought that DVD.
