k got a good one.

1. a straw
2. Wooden match sticks
3. a pizza pan
4. a pan that is a bit smaller than the pizza pan(pie pan)
5. a cup

what you do is put the pizza pand down then put the smaller pan inside that and then the cup in the middle and give each area a number value. Now with the straw and matchsticks put one match stick in the straw and blow in the straw and shoot the match stick towards the target. make sure you are seating on a couch and the target is not to close.

I would play games because the take up time so quickly but i dont want to spend money on games. I like the idea of the match sticks but i wouldnt want to pick them up, I have like 200 beer mats in my room that i some time through about but i dont like picking up the mess either.

'NetFlix' My brother was off his feet for 4 weeks. He rented lots of movies, and read some good books. Cather in the Rye, was one of them.

Get well soon!

Rubiks Cube!! it's fun for hours and hours and until you get bored anyway.... that's when you get different puzzles, like the 4x4x4 cube, and the 5x5x5 cube. those'll keep you occupied for yeeaars....

Why, perfect your juggling skills of of course. You can do lots of cool stuff while sitting down, and you can even juggle lying down. If you haven't learned mill's mess or some other cool three ball variation yet, now is the time.

You might be able to walk on your hands too. (I suspect you already know how.) I think I could probably get into and out of hand-walking without using my ankles too much, and with your acrobatics expertise, I'm sure you could manage it.

You could also take some time to help edit The Unicyclopedia (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Unicycling). This site is in wiki format, so anyone can edit it, or even add whole new sections. You could probably write some helpful tips to the freestyle and trials sections.

You could write a piece about being a unicyclist at circus school and then send it to me to put in the next UUU newsletter. I'm trying to get it together for BUC...

Maybe a bit about auuditions, about what else you learnt, reaction from other students or staff towards your special subject... that kind of stuff, would you recomemnd it to someone else...

In addition to the other fine suggestions, you might

Renew your acquaitance with that old musical instrument you've not played in many years.
Build something small and intricate.
Write an entire Dr. Who adventure, start to finish, set in your community. (You may not be a companion until the last page)
write "i am not a crank!" letters to the editor.
learn a non-european language. Japanese or Korean or Chinese are always a good time.
solve the coker high speed UPD problem

go on your comp, amass all of your old footage, and make a movie, its not complete untill you have added one of every possible affect and transition and sound and everything you can possibly think of. and if you dont have a computer or software or old footage... buy a bunch of matches... and then buy some more
