No matter the place, what do you do when you are bored? Do you daydream? Doodle on a piece of paper? I have a tendency to hum....

I don't really know, never thought about it.
If I'm at home, which I usually am, I like to sit outside in my backyard and suck in the peacefulness

Boredom is boring. Talking about boredom is boring! But I don't think I'm boring! Do YOU?

The last time I was bored I ended up getting married. Fortunately, I don't get bored often.

Can't afford it.

I usually write or make my needleart designs, but if I am REALLY bored I just turn the music on loud and dance.

Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both depend on being outside rather than inside a situation, and one leads to the other. As for leading to marriage I think there are other more significant contributing factors...lol.

That we can call these delicate creatures ours
And not their appetites!

Boredom...leads me to do rather impulsive rash things like, going to the local nudist camp, giving the pet rats baths, reading the dictionary, writing letters I'll never send, going to the local nudist camp, singing in the shower, rearranging the medicine cabinet, and oh yeah...going to the local nudist camp.

I've looked up both bored AND married in my personal passionate trusty dusty dictionary... Neither one of them is there... Are you sure you've spelled them properly???..

actually *blush* I read my Roget's International Thesaurus to broaden my verbal horizons when I am bored. That or I read magazines for my business (sigh it's rough I know) Victoria, Romantic Homes, Martha Stewart Living.....it's a hard job but someone has to do it! That or I experiment with making new espresso drinks, then I get really wired and am no longer bored because I am pinging off the walls.
  
tis just me and my odd yankee ways

Hmmm...let's see, what do I do? I go online (mostly to here, guys), daydream, read the collection of poems I have printed, look for something interesting on the Web (here I mean using a search engine, I already mentioned coming here), read magazines-Cosmo and Glamour for me, go out of my mind...

The list goes on and on you guys!

Well, after complaining that I'm bored for a while I'll either come to Passions, send an annoying amount of E-cards to my friends, or get out my huge box of paper, colored pencils, and crayons and draw.  Then after that I complain that I'm bored some more..

I wander around, restlessly, feeling like I want to jump out of my skin and become air. I winge - oh how I winge..., and then, if possible - I end up here...or writing...or walking...

(if it is really bad I can occasionally end up in front of the TV - now there's honesty...(but not very often - TV sucks in general)
