    I used to balance my checkbook sometimes. Another favorite was unsticking the pages of a new Bible or folding back the dogears of an old one. Good times, man do I miss going to meetings... NOT!

    A friend of mine's father used to be able to sleep with his eyes open, so peacefully. We proved it at a DC by waving our hands in front of his face, nothing... no movement at all. We all envied him!

    Making cartoon captions on pictures in the Watchtower was my favorite. Me and a friend used to black out certain words in scriptural passages to make them mean something else. We got through the entire book of Esther and a little bit of Lamentations. We would also go through the song book and debate which songs would make the best Rap songs. The Shulamite Remnant was the winner incidentally.

    Rubens, are you sure he wasn't just catatonic from what he was listening to? It's been known to put more than a few people into a zombie-like trance.

    before i went to europe and was learning italian and semi fluent in bad-grammar french, i'd translate the talks in my head in one of the languages.

    then, by the time i went to italy, i actually understood 75% of the talks at the hall.

    that's when i thought about joining a different language congregation b/c i was so sick of hearing the shame shite over and over again, i thought it would at least be nice to learn another language and make the meetings like free language classes.

    It was a good time to go through my personal calander and organize my week. Also liked to draw pictures of the speakers in cartoon fashion.
