I can't pick anything from the list as it this week even lacks a "other" option...
What about "talking a walk" or ANYTHING that make you leave the house? Whoever created those questions... Your horizon doesn't cross or even reach the border of your home, hm?
Doesn't anyone cross-check those surveys before the get published? Rose | [Rose]

If silence is my only companion, which is very high ranked in my personal list of perfect things, I'd most likely go through my steam collection and pick a logic puzzle game, something like "The Room" or "The Talos principle" and enjoy solving puzzles.

But if the mood is right in that moment it's also possible that I'd write another episode of my fantasy-shorts. I am a hobby writer and I have spent many hours with the grumpy Dwarf and his mad Gnome friend, two characters I created many years back when I played WoW on a RP Server. Their story didn't ever let me go, so one day, years after I quit WoW, I started to write some adventures for them.
Beside the fact, that the characters were created during my active WoW time, the stories have nothing to do with the world of WoW. They are settled in my own fantasy world I created while writing the adventures. It's just in my head, that they have their origins in Azeroth. Not in the stories.

And... maybe I'd even go outside. Take a long walk through the woods (I live near a big national park, pure nature). Scary, I know. But... there *is* a world outside the house. I've seen it. Been there.

There is a very nice clearing with some banks and a wooden table about 45 Minutes from my home. I have taken my Notebook more than once to that place and have written more than one episode with the Dwarf on that place. Very inspiring, writing a fantasy story while I am really out in the woods, hear the sounds of the birds and insects... hear the wind in the trees...
Yes... while I write this, I feel the mood coming... As I am currently on vacation and right now, in this moment, I DO HAVE such a time frame of several hours just for me (my wife's at work... poor little sweety Smile | :) ) ... I think I take my notebook now and go out.

Thanks for that inspiration Smile | :)
