    things you can do with a broken arm?

    this probably belongs in the lounge but dhers have a higher incident of injury so i thought it would be more useful.
    i broke my hand on sunday. nothing horrible but i'm off for 4-6 weeks. being a machinist, i'm unable to work. i'm trying to figure out things to do to keep me from going insane.
    so far i have:
    applied for my passport (to make it easier to go to whistler)
    gone to the dentist
    took care of some lingering financial issues
    got all of my scrips filled

    i'm out of ideas and it will probably be a bit before i can work.

    This may be considered blasphemous but I managed to get some road rides in with a broken hand last year.

    There is always drinking beer.

    Hiking.

    True up some wheels.

    i've tried curling. it's expensive, you have to either join a league or rent out the whole rink (expensive) and they thaw the rink in mid april

    but it's worth every cent to throw a rock on some ice.
