What are some misconceptions about your hobby?

Explained by Budwick...

For example - I do woodworking. And, I'm pretty good at it too. People see things I've made and assume I am all set to make them something to order - for free, and be quick about it.

I always plant a salsa garden and people think I've got a garage full of salsa to give away at the end of the year. :)

I bet it does!
Everything worthwhile and good 'takes a bit of work'.

People think that my nail art is professionally done. I actually do my own nails and have never been to a professional.

I collect comic books & comic memorabilia. People assume I must be a virgin, a geek, and a loser to do so.

They've obviously never been to a comic convention.

Curiously, I'm finding myself less and less interested in the story lines of the comics and I'm focusing on statues, collectibles, and such.

Very cool. I'm no longer about paper comics. I'm into the novels.

Funny story (that maybe only you would get). In one comic store I use to go to there was a bloody crowbar in the display case. It was signed by Jim Starlin. The tag read "The Jokers Crowbar, actually used on Robin. $100". I laughed every time I saw it.
