So when I'm waiting on stuff, here are 10 things I do to pass the time...
(and please comments and tell me what you do when you're waiting!)
1) Fold the laundry
It calls to me. It taunts me from the other room. It reminds me that it will wrinkle if I don't take care of it.
2) Order random t-shirts from tee-shirt sites
Yes, I know I've been posting some serious t-shirt love on Facebook, but sites like Tee Fury and Shirt Woot have the potential to make me broke.
3) Write a short story
And then revise said short story. And then, when I am sick of revising said short story, find something else on this list.
4) Jump on the elliptical machine
It's the perfect time to get all caught up on GAME OF THRONES (which would not appropriately be called GAME OF THONGS since that would imply the characters were wearing some shreds of clothing).
5) Scrub the toilets
Yes, I must be pretty desperate to get to this one.
6) Listen to Star Trek ambient noise
7) Organize something around the house
A junk drawer, kid's toys, personal finances. Whatever it is, lose myself in the minutiae.
8) Play Wizard101
And do not allow guilt from playing hours of Wizard101 to creep in. This is quality family time.
Waiting time is the perfect time to get caught up on all those ARCs from ALA Midwinter, especially seeing as how TLA is NEXT WEEK and a whole new, fresh batch of ARCs is coming!
10) Kung Fu
Kicking and punching is always a nice solution when filled with pent-up energy.
Okay, so that's my start. What works for you? What's the best way to spend time when busy waiting? :)
