10 things to do when you’re bored.

  1. Start reading that book you’ve been planning to read for years, but never seemed to get to.
  2. Turn off the computer, pick up the phone, and get in touch with a friend you haven’t talked to in a dog’s age. A BeatnikPad rule: never, ever regret.
  3. Get an ISSN for your Weblog, so you can truthfully claim that you write for a periodical with international distribution.
  4. Daydream of what will be, what has been, and what could have been.
  5. Start learning a new language, and try to find a native speaker to practice with.
  6. Try to catch 25 grapes in your mouth, one at a time.
  7. Hang out with your cats. (Okay, or dog, or hamster, or iguana, or ferret… )
  8. Alphabetize your spice rack, rotate your CD collection, and lament the passing of space-pop pioneer ¡Esquival!. Long live the Space Age Bachelor Pad!
  9. Go to the library and leave cryptic, passionate notes to a mysterious lover inbetween the pages of books in the Law section. Lawyers need all the help they can get.
  10. Unplug the phone and take a long nap, and then wake up and blow a bunch of time thinking up stupid, inane lists for the Web site.

Come on, folks. What’s a fun thing to do when you’re bored? Post ‘em in the comments.
