Langy,

I not familiar with this condition "nothing to do" and can offer you some suggestions:

1. Beer can art. I discovered this whilst holidaying in Thailand and decided that it couldn't be too hard to carve into the humble can to create lovely wind chimes/sculptures. I will send a picture of my handy work if you like, but feel it is best left your imagination and creativity. Preparing the materials isn't too bad either.

2. Internet chatting. Not in the "less savory" way, but there are many forums. My favorites include the music themed sites and I post excerpts of lyrics to see if the geniuses can name the title and artist. Does anyone know who sang the song that goes like .... "I'm not sick but I'm not well And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell"

3. Laundry. Anyone can fold the conventional way but have you combined this with origami? My wife doesn't regard it as so amusing to find her underwear knotted into little swans but I roll around the floor cacking myself (roflmao in txt speak).

4. Do you have pets? .... No? .... OK, skip number 4 then.

5. Decoupage. I know, doesn't sound so blokey (colloquial term for masculine). I'm working on a project where I'm cutting out grocery items from the junk mail and pasting them on to a toilet seat.

So there you have it, 5 suggestions without even trying.

Here to help,

P.S. Will post pictures of my Beer Can Art and Decoupage Project shortly.

Nothing to do, what's that mean, I've never experienced this before. I have trouble finding enough time to do everything I would like to do.

You did give me a good idea, if I do a little origami with the laundry maybe my wife will never ask me to fold it again and I will have a little more time to run, think it will work?
