Anyone know cheap forms of entertainment?
« on: June 25, 2010, 03:03:32 PM »
The significant other is out of town for the weekend and I'm one of those that will lose my mind if I don't have something to do.  I am essentially broke,  but was wondering if anyone had cheap entertainment ideas.  I would normally go hang out with some of my buddies from my time in the Marines, but they are on a training operation this weekend in prep for their deployment to Afghanistan in October/November.

You could try some of the free MMORPGs out there. Oniya started a thread asking for some here: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=72619.0

Masturbation? *shrugs*

Just trying to keep your options open...you could watch a new TV show on Hulu, or if you're interested in Anime, pick up a new series. o3o

It's true, there are several options.  I could easily recommend some anime to start watching, and there's already that link for free MMOs.  I could also recommend a few movies to look into, or some manga to start reading...

Also, have you tried your local public library?

*dangles his copy of the Dark elf triology in front of Wolfy's face* Dont tell me you arent tempted  ;D

Come to think of it, if you do go tot he library you should look that one up. I've had that book for probably ten years now and I've probably read it twenty times by now. For fictional reading its easily my favorite but if you want other suggestions I can recommend quite a few

Nowadays, libraries even have comic books in them.  I remember reading black and white collections of old Spider-Man comics that were pretty good...

True libraries are accepting all forms of literature these days. When I was a kid we would occasionally go to the library after church and everytime the first place I would go was right to the dinosaur books. Only one time I remember going over there and seeing a copy of return of the jedi right next to them. That was a great day

If it was animated i think I have enough alcohol in the house that this might suffice lol.

What does being outside have to do with entertainment? Unless you consider standing in the sun or weather some kind of entertainment but that seems bizarre to me
