Kill that boredom and the stash!

What does one do when in "wait" mode? I am currently waiting on several people to get stuff to me for work. So, pretty much I am bored out of my mind. I did the internet thing-still bored. I did the IM thing-still bored. Oh what can kill this boredom?

For a geek, it all involves a pda, excel, and a yarn stash. I started going through my yarn stash, my needle stash (omg), my notions stash, my books, patterns, and magazines and putting them into an excel spreadsheet. Right now I am just going from memory with a little help from Amazon. With the yarn, I am also specifying the project for which it was originally purchased or what project for which it should be used. I am getting quite a good understanding of what is going to keep me busy for the next four months.

Now, I don't have the stash that some people do...mine is confined to a large Pier 1 basket. But I have enough yarn to try some new things and to get some sweaters done. Then it is purchase a project at a time and knit that--nothing to distract me! Good plan, right? We'll see...

I used to be a purchase yarn for a project at a time knitter but that was when I was in school and I wasn't knitting a lot. Now I don't think I can do that because I always have to have something to knit.
