All class, all the time

One of the great benefits to my job is free college classes. Eventually, I may decide to pursue a master's degree, but for right now, I am taking classes just for fun. I start being able to use this benefit just in time for the first summer session.
So, what should I take?
What would you take, if you could, for free, with no grade-type pressure?
What do you wish you'd taken in college, just for kicks?
Some of the current contenders:
  • Seminar: James Joyce's Ulysses.
  • Piano Class I
  • Writing Poetry
  • Ethics
  • Residential Landscape Design
  • Whole Grain Cooking

Some of the options I'm not considering now (in some cases, purely for scheduling reasons):
  • Human Skeletal Remains
  • Mythology, Genre, and the American Dream: The Baseball Film
  • Explosive Dust Evaluation
  • Currency Crises and Global Poverty
  • Introduction to Geography

I'd pick Ethics. Followed by Whole Grain Cooking.
I do hope you'll reconsider Explosive Dust Evaluation, even if just for the name...

I'd go for landscape design now, just because I have some land to scape. Beyond that, I actually have a hankering for Ulysses because I don't think one really ever reads that without a professor pressuring one.

Of the classes you are rejecting, I would LOVE to take Human Skeletal Remains, followed by exchange rate/poverty.

I'm going to second ethics.

Although landscape design will be useful when it stops snowing...

and learning to abate explosive dust would be incredibly useful in all sorts of situations.
