I 'actually read', once I've sat down and found myself a book.

At home, there is always something one can do. I have loads of books to read also. I play computer games, talk to family or friends on telephone. There is always TV, or movies. Play crosswords, do a puzzle. There are many things I could do, never get bored.

I am rarely that bored, but I frequently watch TV or a movie if I'm feeling too tired or lazy to do any of the other things I can think of to do.

I might play video games..Which, you know I'm uber bored if I do that. I might actually read but if the book has really dragged me in then I don't have to be bored. I will go outside and play sports..not necessarily weird ones..but with weird people..I will call random people...And I will do alot of TV watching...But because I can't drive I can't just decide to leave to go to some food place.
Speaking of weird sports...I still have one of my friend's baseball cards from when we were 6 and 7..or 7 and 8...whatever it was we were really young..And we would pretend to be secret agent soccer players that lived on an airplane..and to get back in the room once we left...we had to use the cards. Wow..that was ten years ago...Ook..sorry..I'm done remembering things..

I'm not usually bored with kids to take care of, but in free time I like being online and drawing floorplans. Sometimes I do other stuff. None of the things on the list are things I'd resort to doing if I'm bored, except *maybe* watching a movie or t.v. but only if my husband or one of the kids is already watching something interesting.

Read, there is a million books I want to read and never get round to.
And of course, listen to music.

I'm not sure I understand what is meant by "standing there," but I generally read for recreation.

I never get bored, I'm a distracted work-a-holic with a zen appreciation of my activities, so there's no time for boredom.

Ah wait, there are times I get bored, when I'm on a bus or in a waiting room, in which case I read or work in my design journal.

Boredom is not something that I experience. I have a theory that only boring people get bored. I don't know. I can always entertain myself. I have a never ending supply of daydreams for example.

As there wasn't an option for this, I selected the only option available that was something that I do: "actually read". I don't own video games or a TV, I hate having pointless telephone conversations, I don't even know what a "weird sport" is, and I only go to restaurants when I'm hungry.

I don't stand around at home unless I'm doing dishes or heating something up in the microwave. The choices are limited and don't cover what I do when I'm bored.

I don't get bored. There is always some way I can occupy myself. Reading, watching TV or a movie, going for a walk. cleaning, going online, etc.

Standing? What happens if I'm sitting down and bored?

I will play Yahoo Games Mah Jong Solitaire, read my book, dink on the computer, maybe watch TV if something good is on Animal Planet, Court TV, or one of my documentary channels... all done sitting down.

I will also do things like clean the refrigerator (work stuff), tidy up my room, play with my remaining rat, Jay (Silent Bob is no more), smoke pot (if I have any)... when I had my Ultima Online account, I could spend the whole day playing that.
