How do you guys pass the time?

This is my first real injury since I have been riding and I have been injured for a little over a week now. I am going batshit crazy!

1) Normally I ride my dirtbike every day at BRAWP Motor Speedway
2) When I am not riding my dirtbike during the week I am wrenching on the Ninja 250 or other Bike...
3) Just bought a bicycle to assist in getting in shape which... I can't ride right now.
4) My weekends consist typically of track time...

I mean there are definitely things to do.. that are fun.. but I am a lefty in that respect so even that

I played a couple of seasons of Madden when I was laid up for a week. Even found a way to prop up my leg and hold the guitar at the same time....I would have never figured out or had the patience to learn "bar chords" had I not been laid up that entire week.

Rewatch the entire Band of Brothers miniseries. Of course that's a lot of sitting around, but the last time I was banged up, it was a busted foot and so there was a lot of sitting around time anyway.

Yes! after Band of Bros watch The Pacific and then if you have more time, I found this series pretty interesting. It's called Generation Kill. A rolling stone reporter was embedded in a marine recon squad at the beginning of operation freedom. It was first released in the magazines and then made into a series for hbo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_Kill -- I'd try and read it first and then watch the series.

Last thing I'd want to do is intricate 2 handed work. Recipe for frustration
