I do system maintenance while playing good new tunes on the stereo that I want to learn by osmosis. Clean up files, download new software, and so on.

Here at Mudcat, I used to do this, and you can too-- set the time filter for the last week's worth of threads and find the Lyr/Chord/Help requests that never got answered. Look for threads with only 1 or 2 posts, and refresh them. Use your back button after each one to get back where you were and avoid long loading times.

Where the requestor has asked for an e-mail reply, send them one indicating they need to come back to Mudcat to watch for replies. I used to give the Mudcat URL when I did this so they'd find their way back. Sometimes I'd copy and paste the URL for their thread, but usually just the Mudcat one. I had a message draft I'd reuse sitting on my desktop so I could just copy, paste, and fire away. Oh and tell 'em you're a volunteer and member-- so they don't think they have a staffer permanently at their disposal.

The reason for giving the Cat URL is that a lot of times, surfers have left the request in a number of different sites, and have not bookmarked, especially when they think they will get their answer by e-mail.

You can cover it in about an hour and a half and the thing is, discovering how to do it efficiently helps with the boredom. Your mind wakes up and you get other ideas of what to do.

It's also nice at the beginning of each month to look up the Mudcat Birthdays for that month in the Resources section, and copy-paste the info into a thread. (You have to clean up line breaks, etc.) Otherwise only the Catters who have a good friend who knows their birthday get birthday threads. I have heard from a couple of people that they get really hurt feelings that no one birthday'ed them. Not that it's a duty... just that people have a lot of feelings about birthdays. And no one here does it each and every month.

A Welcome New Members thread is also nice-- and when you start one, keep coming back while it's running to acknowledge the people who introduce themselves. This has really made the new members feel welcome enough to post more than they would have otherwise. It often brings lurkers out of the shadows and we all get to discover a new, wonderful friend. I can't think of a single one that has been welcomed like that who became (or was) a flamer, in fact. I guess it's like when a killer is made to realize the humanity of the victim.... the welcome threads re-personalize what gets depersonalized due to the medium of the cyberworld.

Another good thing is to start a playful thread when you see a lot of wrangling going on. Not too many-- if there is a strong play-thread already running, wait for another time, or the flamers will get antsy about the amount of BS and this defeats the purpose. But sometimes, you may be just the one to lighten up the atmosphere. An oddball question about music is usually best.

Sending cheery PMs to people stuck in flame wars or other troubles, or to new members, is always appreciated.

Or you can write posts like this.

Corny suggestion alert.

Do something nice for someone else.

Write a bunch of letters to those friends and relatives you haven't communicated with in a while.

Take thirty bucks or so and if you live in an area where there are homeless people, give three people ten bucks each...before they ask.

My Fave here: Go somewhere and sing a few songs for people in a hospital who are bored EVERY day.

Go to a community centre, put up a little sign. "Free beginners guitar lessons" (if you play guitar). Giving the gift of music is just about the best thing we Mudcatters can give anyone.

Told you they were corny!

If worse comes to worse, make a list of things that need to be done that you don't enjoy doing (clean your room, write thank-you notes from Christmas, whatever). If you can get yourself to do the stuff on the list, it may not be fun, but it will pass the time, and you'll get some chore or other out of the way. (I'm a mom). If you're stuck at work, school, or a boring mandatory meeting od some sort, make the list anyway, as well as things you want to get done that you'd do if you weren't there, etc. It will make you look like you're taking notes, and people will think you're diligent. (I get bored, too)

gahd - I wish I could remember what it felt like to be bored when I wasn't stuck where I couldn't do anything else. Who has time? between transcribing stuff, trying to fit music to tunes, trying to get some of my own tunes on paper, recreating an antique crocheted christening cap for a friend, trying to finish several christmas gifts from LAST year, trying to find time for PalTalk, learning new songs, gaming, dishes, laundry, shopping, cooking...

put it this way - the last time I was bored it was a meeting...luckily I was surrounded by about 500 other people who also had glazed looks on their faces.

Fib, I'm bored cos I've got nothing to do. I've done all my college work and I've got about half an hour to kill now before I go to the theatre, where I bet I will be even MORE bored!! My idea of "Entertainment" is NOTsitting in a theatre watching a John Webster play called "The Duchess Of Malfi". I'd never even heard of him before the trip was announced so I'm not looking forward to it at all! Apparently he's a contemporary of Shakespeare and his plays are full of blood and guts and all the revolting things that are inside you, but I am NOT, repeat NOT, into all that kind of stuff! I'm only going cos I have to!

Hey Firecat.........If you do a tenth of the things suggested on this thread, you won't be bored. As to boring meetings or other things that are "required"............get used to it. We all have it happen and sometimes the stuff is just unavoidable. Get creative.

Last week, I entertained the staff in the heart catheterization lab by telling long rambling stories of the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed. Even the Doc was laughing and they all agreed it was the strangest cath they had ever done....but it passed the time while I lay there and they ran a tube through the arteries. When it was over I was stuck with the most boring thing you can do........absolutely nothing. You have to lay on your back for 6 hours with your leg completely still (they go in though the femoral artery and if it bleeds, you pump out all your blood in about a minute). So I invented a game....a challenge sorta'.

I've had caths and I know I'm ready to go at 4 hours, but they deman 6. I set a goal of 5. I ate lunch, read a book, talked with Karen and then at about 31/2 hours I started calling the nurse for everything. Anytime an aide showed up to check vitals, I'd be mean as a snake. When the nurse would come in, I'd be all sweetness and light. In a very short time, the nurse got tired of being called to check on the bandage or whatever and she was getting fed up with the aide complaining. In other words, although she couldn't figure out what the aide was talking about, I was becoming a pain in the ass to her day. At 4 hours when she arrived, I asked if it might be possible to move a bit and she jumped at the chance to get me out of there. End result.......I left at 5 hours.

Look Kiddo, life sucks on a lot of levels. Use your own creativity to invent work (many times you don't have too) or play games or manipulate people (a good skill to learn) or let your mind run free. Watch the play with great intensity and make strange notes that are totally unrelated to it and make sure others see you doing it AND see the nonsensical notes.....meanwhile concentrate on pieces of backdrop and sketch them upside down with arrows going to various parts and letters referencing your notes. If asked, roll your eyes and give them a humorous but curious look as though you can't understand that THEY don't understand.

Life's short. Have fun.

Spaw

My cures for boredom: Play the accordion, travel to Canada, play with words, Mudcat, read a good book. Have you read the Harry Potter books yet? By the way, I enjoyed Chicken Run, too. But I like the Wallace and Gromits better. Also, have you read The Wind in the Willows? That's a sure cure for boredom.

One of the highlights of my theatre-going experienece was The Duchess of Malfi, an amateur production. All blood and gore and high-flown rhetoric, and then in one seen there's a hand that's been chopped off, and a character throws it at the feet of an enemy. And it was made of rubber, and it bounced...

The old songs are the best songs, and the old plays are the best plays.

The choice between being bored or not being bored is an act of the will.

Boredom? Ooooh...that's a toughie. It's horrible being bored. I think it's a symptom of having lost the sense of what your life is really about. A lot of boredom is a form of depression, usually.

Many people try to cure it through short term distraction, and many methods of doing that have been suggested above, but they're all just a quick fix, I think.

There's masturbation, too, but it only gets you just so far...

And then, maybe you're bored again. Plus tired out in certain parts...

Yeeesh! Life's a drag sometimes, ain't it?

To find an urgent sense of real purpose would totally clear up boredom.

This may be one big reason why all of Europe went to war in 1914, and massacred each other for 5 years. My grandmother was living in Vienna at the time, and she said there was absolute celebration in the streets when the war was declared. People were deliriously happy about it, throwing flowers from the balconies on the marching soldiers in the streets, heading off to glory.

That's the "precipitating a crisis" cure to boredom.

Three years later they were surviving on rats and potatoe peelings, the economy was in a shambles, and their sons were missing or dead.

Yup, boredom is a tough one.

Here's an idea. Try making someone else feel good...that can have surprising results sometimes. It doesn't have to be anything big.

I'll go along with Rick...corny, but whenever I am doing for someone else, it works. I keep the HD out at all times, and can play whenever there is a five minute interval, in addition to practice time. Or that stray half hour that you made an example of, is a perfect time for meditation. Trust me, boredom is something you definitely outgrow. It will be gone from your life very shortly.

Nun-splitting? Sounds nasty! Is it anything like cow tipping?

Nun-spitting:

When performed on the streets of Manchester ~30 years ago was done thusly.

Stand around on the street until a pair of nuns appear.
As they approach you walk between them.

If you haven't got the nerve for this work up to it by practising on pairs of policemen, (they're easier to split).
