In front of my MacBook Pro
#1, look for some open wifi. #2, play some chopper until I get bored. #3, move the mouse through the dock. #4, make a model in SketchUP. #5, play in Photo Booth. #5, put the MBP to sleep and go do something with my life.

Take the ipod and go listen to music outside while playing golf/ biking/ running/ Bum off somebody's open wifi.

Our new house is actually a barn, but its nicer than our house, but nways its literally in the middle of nowhere, we have a few neighbors but there at the end of where you can get internet, and about 3 miles down the road. :cool: otherwise i would:D

iPhone. I used to find a dark corner to curl up in until the world stopped caving in on me, though.

With the computer? I like to hack around in Xcode.
Without the computer? I like to pull my knees to my chest, rock back and forth, and murmur...

Stupid games. I am new to Mac, but so far like the set at PopCap Games - Zuma, Bejeweled... perfect for those times, like traveling, where you don't want to think - just turn on some music and play simple/stupid games.

I have enjoyed playing around in GarageBand and iMovie - they are MUCH better than I expected. I never seem to finish anything, but fun to just hack around in a bit...

On The Interweb Thingy!
As it happens my interwebs was taken from me yesterday! :mad: They're building on the road close to my house and they must have cut the cables. The TV and radio went with it too! Luckily it was nice day....so I spent my time outside sanding and painting my windows.

Normally however, when I'm out and about and have chosen not to have interwebs I'm listening to tunes and drawing in Flash! :cool:

Try and bum off someone elses open wifi. If that fails I'll use KisMac to try and bruteforce into a WEP-protected network, and if that fails I turn wifi off and make my site in Coda and MAMP.

Or just do something else...

I save stories and ebooks onto my computer to read when our crappy cable modem decides that it doesn't want to work anymore.

I go through my iTunes music and make sure that all the fields are filling in .. (NOT ALLLLLLLLL!) .. like genre, artists, ratings (for my smart playlists), create new smart playlists, delete songs .. etc...

We had recent severe thunderstorms, and I lost power for 12 hours.

I pretty much wanted to cry. But after I wept, and my soul was crushed, I decided to Play a game I Downloaded (Free Demo) called DEFCON.

Totally awesome
