OT: Bored... very bored...

See, the problem is... all you peeps, in the main, fly off to somewhere to do something. Business meeting or the likes... but now my flying is done for the day, I am on a "billy no mates trip" (i.e. a single crew member filling gaps around Europe on their own) and the place I am in is p'ing down... and I don't just mean a bit of drizzle, I mean lashing down...

I need to be entertained... so please, entertain me!

There is some sort of conference on at the hotel, and the surrounding business men are all a bit boring looking... so no conversation striking going on there...!

Anyone got some jokes or tid bits of gossip for a lonely crew member???

Why don't you go to the gym at the hotel you are in?

Closed... Being "refurbished"... shame they can not do that to the rest of the hotel mind! (a tad on the 90's side...!)

I was looking at a weather map and that particular country seemed quite possible - I won't keep on guessing just thought one guess might entertain you!

I am the only person who does not "get" sudoku? It has never appealed to me... I get bored after about 2 minutes...

Thanks for the suggestions though!
