Google Earth .  I go sightseeing for a while .  Besides building models I'm into geography and collect old maps so I can really get lost for hours !

I go lay on the couch and put a crappy show on the TV. That usually puts me out.

I get up at 0430 Wednesday through Saturday for work, so I am usually fast asleep at 0300. But when it happens, I have Google Earth to amuse me.

For me, that's the perfect time to build! No noise or distractions. When I was younger, I would do that all of the time when I was building. I would get started on a build and just couldn't put it down. It would make for a rough day at work sometimes.

I occasionally get insomnia that overrides my sleeping pills...I grab my Kindle and read a book, or my Kindle Fire and surf the web..  I usually get up at 5:30-6 weekdays as I like to get to work before 8.  Sometimes I wake up close to 5 I'll just get up and go to Starbucks for a while...

Don't forget all the TV/Movies we can watch on our PC!!

I have Season 1 of Adam-12, 1-3 & the movies of Emergency,

Also Collection-1/season 1 of Mythbusters.

Plus all the On-line sites. Veoh, Hulu, Vimeo. Even Screwtube is

now offering Full episodes instead on 10 minute max pieces

All the US Networks offer Recent broadcasts on their own sites, as well as through others

Hulu, istore, etc.

How many Networks from Europe, Japan, Asia also have this??

 

Heck, I play mp3's and play solitaire at times!!!

Why do some of you guys drink coffee when you can't get to sleep? Wouldn't that be counter productive if you want to fall asleep?

Yea, no kidding. I've given up coffee and anything caffeinated. Gotta say, tho, that the coffee cravings are a bad as when I stopped smoking. Oooo, I hear starbucks calling me..... :blink:

Don't know what it is about coffee.

Never drank it, don't plan to either!!!

 

To each their own.. Just like in Model building. I like Police/Fire,

Stock, Wagons, Convertibles, etc.

Not very interested in motorcycles, hot-rods, etc, but I will look at them.

Others here don't like Police cars, or Fire engines, or Wagons, etc.

We do like the skill, but not necessarily the subject.
