Bored and wondering

I was feeling kind of bored so I composed this poll with questions about what you do with your free time. The first two questions are check boxes to see which of you do the things listed. There is purposely no option for "other" but feel welcome to comment with other things along that vein. The other questions are about what your most common choice is in those situations.
