Dun dun dunnnn... My grandma is here for a week. She is a Gucci-wearing, judging, high-class... THING! No TV. No computer (She's out at the moment) No entertainment, other than reading lame books on history. Fortunately, I do get to go on the computer to do homework. Just so I have an excuse to be on here longer, send many random emails to me. Please. I'm dying here. *stabs self* (I expect this to get canned. Meh) :( :( :(

I sympathize, but I can't relate.

Hey, I'd be up for it if it weren't for the small matter of the Pacific Ocean separating me from most of the rest of the SW community.

The Young Poisoner's Handbook deals with a young man poisoning a number of people. It's based on a true life event.

Maybe you can research a way to appear to be dead, that might take you out of the house (it might have some problematic side-effects, though).

Does your house have a fire alarm system? No, wait, that wouldn't work and might get you into trouble.

Maybe you can repeatedly bore your grand mother to sleep (or grand mother naps) and sneak away and use your computer for fiendish uses instead of homework.

You poor fella. Pretend to be asleep. Send yourself 3,000 emails. I could give you some more excuses, if you want.

Google for "subscribe to spam mail".

There are plenty of people who would LOVE to send you email.

Plenty of auto-mated email senders, don't you mean.

If you want to avoid your granny, run. Most old people are slow.

An internet connection, however, is usually available only from one specific place (unless you're going wireless), and it's hard to run while using a laptop, let alone a desktop PC.

Mh... if you don't particularly like her, why don't you try (subtly of course) to piss her off just enough so she's all huffy and offended and won't want to talk to you for the rest of the visit - but not so much she'll complain to your parents and get you grounded. Some old relatives think it is a horribly cruel punishment if they just ignore you. Enjoy. Perhaps use that time to go online (subtly, again, of course). Voila.

No guarantees for any harm sustained while trying the above advice. ;)

That's also illegal, if you get caught. And with today's lazy thiefs, with their calling cards and what-not left lying around, it'd only be a matter of time before the feds come.

I have an idea. Go to the library. ad use the internet there. In the UK, libraries have to guve you access, so you can tell your gran you'll be "learning" whilst being online. Voila.

How about reading a book? Or doing anything else? A world exists outside of the computer, you know.

I like the idea of reading a book. Drawing or writing would be good as well. There is also the option of spending some time with your grandmother. Are you able to go out? If so go for a lot of walks, or got to the park.

As a longer-term sort of suggestion: Take up a sport. I started rowing in college because I wanted to get in better shape (not to mention that I was afraid I was too big a gaming dork - I will probably always remain a chronic closet gamer - and so felt I needed to justify this by doing something "normal" and "cool" like something athletic. I know - it's a little pathetic...).

The benefits of this decision, outside of the impact on my gamer guilt, were manifold - I was in the best shape of my life, healthier than I'd ever been (allergies that had been a problem before seemed to disappear), I lost a bunch of weight, and I met all kinds of people. Not to mention the sense of accomplishment.

My only regret? Not looking into doing anything athletic sooner.
