It is never too late to be what you might have been.

George Eliot

``````````````

Really Bored

Things you can do with absolutely nothing...


Push your eyes for interesting light show:
(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes) See a variety of blobs, stars and flashes. Try to make out things - is your subconscious trying to send you a message? Can you control what you see by pressing different areas with different forces? Would it be possible to somehow see the same effects on TV? Or for that matter, watch TV with your eyes shut doing this?

See how long you can hold your breath:
(Amusement Potential: 4-20 minutes) Not that much fun, but it sure passes the time. Play with a friend, or try to beat your own personal best. Some tips: hyperventilate before hand, and stay as still as possible.

Try to not think about polar bears:
(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes) This is especially hard, because by trying too much, you remember what you were trying to avoid thinking of. If you try too little, you end up thinking about polar bears anyway.

Scratch yourself:
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes) Go ahead, scratch yourself now. Even if nothing itches, go ahead. Doesn't that feel pretty good?

Hurt yourself:
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes) What is pain? Why is it unpleasant? There's nothing physical about it - it's all in your mind. Plus, after pinching yourself for awhile, boredom will seem nice next to being in pain.

Try to swallow your tongue:
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes) There's not much to say about this one. It is possible.

Look at something for awhile, shut eyes, study after image:
(Amusement Potential: 2-5 minutes) Another great time waster. It takes about 30 seconds of staring to create an after image, and the image is then viewable for about the same length of time. Fun to combine this one with pushing on your eyes.

Get yourself as nauseated as possible:
(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes) Best achieved by looking straight up and spinning around. Try to be so dizzy you can't even stand up. This is also entertaining due to the "makes boredom seem a lot better" effect (see "Hurt Yourself").
 
Things you can do with very little:

See what's in your neighbour's trash:
(Amusement Potential: 20-30 minutes) You can learn a lot about people by what they throw out. You might uncover some dark secret about them. Plus, they might be throwing out something with value that still works, like a VCR.

Watch TV, repeat everything said in Italian accent:
(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes) Sort of entertaining. Fun to pretend the people on the screen are actually talking that way.

Call up people who write editorials you disagree with:
(Amusement Potential: 15-60 minutes) I'm surprised no one has thought of this before. Unleash your fury on the person who had the nerve to write a letter like that! I'm pretty sure it doesn't qualify as a prank phone call, too.

Make prank phone calls:
(Amusement Potential: 20-60 minutes) Very entertaining, but requires discipline. Remember - vulgarities don't make a call funny, but getting the other person to believe a ridiculous story will. Even more fun if you get a bunch of people on the line using a Wonderphone and take turns making the calls. One to get you started off: Call McDonald's, try to make reservations.

Pretend all humans will die except for people in the room with you:
(Amusement Potential: 10-20 minutes) What would you do if this really happened? Would the group stay together, or would there be factions? Who would join what group? Remember, there would only be power for a few days before the plants ran out of fuel or broke. To travel, you would always have to be near cars to siphon gas out of. Best to do with people you know.

Step off a curb with eyes shut, imagine it's a cliff:
(Amusement Potential: 2-5 minutes) To get any benefit out of this one, you have to have a good imagination. Don't step off immediately, build up to the jump. Study the ravine below. Feel the winds at that altitude. Step off and... AHHHHHH!!!!!

Burn things with a magnifying glass:
(Amusement Potential: 5-30 minutes) Ants are always fun to use for this, but burning the face of someone you don't like, under some circumstances, can be just as entertaining.
 
Things you can do with another person:

Have a water drinking contest:
(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes) While the competition is fun, you probably won't feel too good afterward. To give your event an old western theme, slam the cups upside down on the tables after you have emptied them.

Stare at the back of someone's head until they turn around:
(Amusement Potential: 2-5 minutes) This works on the "I have the feeling I'm being watched" principle. Conduct an experiment--does this really work?

Have a "Who is less competitive" competition:
(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes) Trying to win at this will make you lose. Trying to lose makes you win which makes you lose. Not trying at all makes you lose which makes you win which makes you lose.

Pick up a dog so it can see things from your point of view:
(Amusement Potential: 3-5 minutes) Think about it: your dog has only seen the house from a viewpoint from 6" to 2' high (15 to 60 cm for all you metric fans). It's never seen the tops of counters, what you keep on your desk, the tops of shelves, etc. Try looking at things from its point of view, too.

Pull out a hair, stick in someone's ear:
(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes) Best done to sleeping people. Added challenge in having no one else around, because then you can't blame it on anyone else. Try to beat your record number of times before the person catches on.

Pour water in hand, make sneeze noise, throw water on back of person's neck:
(Amusement Potential: 5-15 minutes) Always a good gag. For an even bigger reaction out of the person, act like you're not sorry at all for what they think you did. Comment instead on how big that sneeze was or about how there was a lot of mucus in that one.

````````````````````

Puppy Photos

Photographing a new puppy isn't as easy as it may first sound...


Remove film from box and load camera.

Remove film box from puppy's mouth and throw in trash.

Remove puppy from trash and brush coffee grounds from muzzle.

Choose a suitable background for photo.

Mount camera on tripod and focus.

Find puppy and take dirty sock from mouth.

Place puppy in pre-focused spot and return to camera.

Forget about spot and crawl after puppy on knees.

Focus with one hand and fend off puppy with other hand.

Get tissue and clean nose print from lens.

Take flash cube from puppy's mouth and throw in trash.

Put cat outside and put peroxide on the scratch on puppy's nose.

Put magazines back on coffee table.

Try to get puppy's attention by squeaking toy over your head.

Replace your glasses and check camera for damage.

Jump up in time to grab puppy by scruff of neck and say, "No, outside! No, outside!"

Call spouse to clean up mess.

Fix a drink.

Sit back in Lazy Boy with drink and resolve to teach puppy "sit" and "stay" the first thing in the morning.

```````````````

Real Friends

Are you tired of those asinine "friendship" poems with decent intentions, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here's a collection of promises that actually speak of true friendship.


1. When you are sad - I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry so and so who made you sad.

2. When you are blue - I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile - I will know you finally got laid.

4. When you are scared - I will rag on you about it every chance I get.

5. When you are worried - I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining.

6. When you are confused - I will use little words.

7. When you are sick - Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall - I will point and laugh at your clumsy butt.

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warmth.

`````````````

Good morning everyboomie.


Welcome to the 32nd of January. welcome


We had another glorious day here. It got up to about 77 degrees. penguin


I took the dogs out early to the park. For the first time in a long time is was nice, and with no wind. yay


When I got back, I had to climb back into exercise mode. My exercise program is like one step forward, and two steps back, because my body shuts down and says "I don't agree with what you're doing". rolleyes


Ana when you run a marathon, what is your pace? praise


I got on my treadmill today, and ran for 2 miles, which was great, the question is, will I be able to walk tomorrow. After my last run/walk I got up the next day and my legs really felt like rigor mortis had set in. shocked


It took me 10 to 11 minutes per mile today. The next time I want to push for 3 miles. yes


So now I have 2 pack abs.....and they're vertical. I have lots of work there to do, but it's a definite improvement over the little beer barrel belly I had. slapforehead


I have buns of clay.............................when I clinch them real tight. blush


Imagine all that on a pair of bird legs that are white as a ghost, and you'll know why I avoid the beach. lol


Have a happy day everyone.


joe

Joe, when I actually do a race I usually do about a 12 minute mile. Occasionally I can do better but it's not worth it. I think you know that my big toes aren't in the socket and don't move except about 2mm. They hurt. A lot. According to the surgeon I can't run at all, but I keep proving him wrong. lol I am up to running a little over 4 miles in one stretch, my goal is to get to 4.5 miles in under an hour for a March race. When your legs hurt the next day you need to run to fix them. Not far, just a bit to un cramp them. Great that you are getting in shape! hearts

Have a happy day all!

Hi all. Midgie here. I had to work this morning on my one day off That I have all week. They were in a pinch and they asked me if I would work this morning. After tossing it around for a short time, I said yes....again. This is getting to be a habit. I think They should hire more people. I won't always be able to say yes.

It's cold out there. Getting colder next week. Not my favorite time of year. We haven't had a lot of snow yet this winter. That's OK with me. Well, have a good rest of the day all.

Midgie hearts wavegirl


Just do it.

Midgy, you need to start saying No. As long as you they can get you to do it, they are not going to hire, at least IMHO.

Night Space, sweet dreams.

I'll be going up soon too.

She is doing ok, Ana. Thanks for asking. She is still a cone head. She was sitting on the couch licking the cone today, but at least she wasn't licking her foot. We change the bandage again tomorrow, so will be able to see how it is then.

How are your boys?

THat's good L4L! I'm guessing that cone has to be driving her crazy! My boys are a mess. lol Merlin has his leg wrapped again because of licking and Shadow is still hesitant to stand on his rear leg although he runs like crazy on it! I think next week he will go in for xrays.

It's a conspiracy, Ana. Our dogs are trying to drive us nuts.
