    Here is a  strange question: What do you do when you want to do nothing?
    What is your answer?

      When I want to do nothing thinks about what to do afterwards?

    Not a very funny answer, but when I want to "do nothing" I come to the HP forums.  I've worked very hard at doing nothing over the last two days or so. 

    Snow and ice outside.  No work 'til after the weekend.  I'm amazingly skilled at doing nothing, apparently.  Well, not entirely.  I did write a few Hubs while doing nothing - but they're "nothing" Hubs, so maybe that counts (for nothing).  Then again, maybe wasting so much time on the forums balances out the fact that I wrote Hubs in my do-nothing time.  I figure being on the forums gets a whole lot of "do-nothing" points.

      I do the same, or go sit outside on the patio and listen, look at the sky, close my eyes ~ take a walk with my dog.

      Today it may be a nap, something cozy, maybe a book.
      I thought of writing a hub, but I want to do nothing today.

    Get myself a cup of black coffee. Sit in a stationary position on my favorite couch. And not watch TV. Listen to radio. Read anything. Just sit. Sip coffee. Maybe for thirty-minutes at a time.

    I feel dirty admiting this, but...
    I toddle on over to 4Chan and browse the paranormal section. Sometimes I even join in on the "discussions."
    That or look for new funny YT videos.

        Dear God no. Not the paranormal section, anyway. Parts of it are, but I stay well clear of those.
        It's basically where any and all shreds of human decency go to die.
        You do get the odd nice person, every now and then, though.

      Paranormal porn? What a concept. When I want to do nothing, that's what I do...nothing.

    Past experience dictates that when I want to do absolutely nothing, and avoid any form of "honey-do" lists, I saunter slowly out to the garage.  Grab my well padded and comfortable "jeepers-creeper" and slide very carefully under my 1964 GTO.  It's absolutely forbidden to mess with me when I'm working on my old goat....take it from a human old goat...it works all the time.

      Bitter winter cold or not, when I get stuck or need a break, I go for a walk.  It's the most mentally refreshing activity there is.
