I don't tinker. I don't fix things. I am certainly not an inventor. I can barely put together a Walmart bookcase, even with the instructions (despite a degree in engineering.)
I do, however, have lots of ideas for crappy projects. Sometimes I even buy the tools and materials for those projects.
Follow me through my boring times, not doing my projects, but thinking really, really hard about maybe putting down my beer, getting out of my chair, and doing some kind of unnecessary household project. Or necessary project, like building that goddamn bookcase so that my TV doesn't live on a box that's full of crap anymore.
