    I make myself a Bloody Mary, put on rubber gloves, get a stack of magazines and cut out lots of random letters. Then I spend a relaxing evening watching Murder She Wrote while pasting these letters onto a piece of paper to make random threatening/blackmail letters that I send out to anyone that takes my fancy.

    I was going to say, I put on some music and organize a random closet or drawer so that my boredom at least becomes productive ... but suddenly that seems banal. Mail felony does seem like a more entertaining way to pass the time.

    I can't remember the last time I was bored (excluding school and work, of course) but sometimes I feel like doing nothing and then I just sit on the couch and smoke a cigarette and recharge my batteries, as it were.
    But you can also do it without the cigarette.

    I usually clean or call my friend Mary. Or watch Sue Ellen and JR (not that I need to be bored to do that).

    I don't often get bored though.

    Kill two birds with one stone, work on my writing and do some crafting at the same time. And it's recycling so helping the environment.

    I think you should post all your messages with these images. I hope you've got enough S's, L's, U's and T's.

    I haven't really hit the boredom levels yet, with working from home (and my line of work), there is usually a steady trickle of work to deal with.

    First I started this thread, then did some schoolwork for today's podcast examination assignment.

    Usually I take a long nap when I'm very bored, and wake up in a much better mood.

    But..... now I am rethinking that method. I need to collect some magazines.

    I have managed to put off some online training I was meant to do on lockdown while shielding, despite being online all day for about 10 weeks. I'm going to have to complete it before I go back to work.
