No... I can't read something while doing it and I can't listen to music while doing it, and if I have a TV in front of me then I'll forget what I'm saying and not pay attention to what the person on the phone is saying to me.

PB is the most boring mind numbing activity ever! I would rather do data entry because at least while doing that I can throw on headphones and listen to lectures of Pandora or something or maybe even have a movie in the background.

I browse the RPF and work on other small discrete tasks that I can easily step away from in case someone actually picks up the phone. I also watch some Peter Schiff vids to inspire me.

I clean the house, feed the kid, play with the kid, and surf the net.

I tried reading books and doing homework but that was too difficult.
