    If for a whole 24 hours, there was none of the following

    Mobiles
    TV
    No I-pods or MP3 players
    Play stations, Nintendo’s or Xbox
    No internet
    No work, University or college.
    You could not stay in bed (the laundry fairy was visiting for imaginary purposes)

    What would you do for fun and relaxation?

    No bed for 24 hours? Christ!

    You haven't said there are no computers (only no internet and no TVs), so I reckon it's DVD boxset marathon time on my laptop. :p

    I assume public transport would still be running? So I'd probably do what I enjoy doing anyway: go for a walk in the country or up in London.

    Probably try and crack on with the model railway layout, as long as I'm still allowed to use a soldering iron!

    Depends on who else was with me, theres an awful lot you can do without being in bed.

    If it where tomorow I'd proberbly just go out for a drive up to the Lake District and sit doing nothing much.

    Polish off a couple of books, I think, whilst knocking together a nice roast dinner.

    I'll take advantage of the computer and play a few games too.

    For me -
    Day at the beach enjoying the sunshine.
    Evening at the pub enjoying the beer.
    Night asleep on the sofa enjoying the peace and quiet.

    Ah bliss. :D

    Hunt the mythical 'grey' perch (which don't officially exist) in South Hetton pond and get photographic evidence of their existance.

    Do exactly the same things that I do anyway :|:
    Go for a train ride somewhere
    Have a nice walk in the countryside/climb a mountain
    Cook a good hearty meal
    Spend some quality time with the missus
    Go to the pub
    Enjoy the company of good friends

    To name but a few typical regular activities. Simple really.

    Sega Mega Drive comes in useful here... retro gaming :D
    Or if games machines were totally out, theres always the possibility of going Airport and catching a train, and just going as far as it goes. (It would be a bit rubbish if it were the All-Stopper to Manchester, but if it was somewhere "exotic" like Cleethorpes, then I actually find it quite a good way to kill time. Not that it normally needs to be killed! :D )

    So much can be done in that time, like travelling, or seeing people, or being creative...

    I would probably try writing for most of it, probably with at least a bit of travel - and possibly a conneciton between the two. Now, if only there was someone around who could and would spend that time with me... someone female, and suitable...

    Tell me about it :(

    90% of this forum probably knows I don't like being single though, so what's new...?

    Another idea I had would be using the shower/bath all day! If you need to sleep, lie in an empty bath!
