What is there to do during lockdown, if you’ve got no friends and are easily bored by indoor activities?

Can't remember who wrote this, but I read a poem about prevarication in a newspaper once that included the lines:

"One thing that really helps time pass, is
Tightening up those little screws
On specs, if you wear glasses."

Dunno, I'm not easily bored by indoor activities. I got a lot of video games and books to catch up on.
I've been outside a little bit during the pandemic, but it's hard because I can't walk very well anymore. I do a lot of sitting these days =[

That's too bad. How come you can't walk well anymore?

I would if I knew the right people. I don't know how to order pot online either. :( Been staying at mom's during lockdown and she doesn't want me to smoke pot here. But if I find anyone trust worthy enough to get the good stuff from, I'll be doing it anyway. 8)

Long-Haul COVID =(
It's got my balance all messed up, and my energy runs out a lot faster than it used to.

It comes and goes in waves, though, so some days are better than others. I really should try to get more walks in, but I at least try to walk down to the mailboxes if I'm not feeling terrible.

I've been thinking about getting a cane or something.

I used to do drugs.
I still do, but I used to as well. 8)

And once you're blunted you can play some stoner metal riffs and imagine you're in Black Sabbath.
