Search for change in your couch cushions
Pennies, nickels and dimes are generally frowned upon by the folded-bill elite, but ask any savvy panhandler and he’ll tell you those little Abe Lincolns add up. While those poor taxpayers in London are forking over an estimated $32 million to help pay for that wedding, you’ll be stacking dough from your own couch cushions. Win!

Make hair arts and crafts
Have you ever seen the billowing knots known as tumbleweave wandering your metropolis? Do you have spare strips of synthetic hair loitering your domicile? Maybe you’re just like me – your hair sheds like crazy and you’ve got enough loose strands to make a small wig for a house cat. Put those stray locks to creative use and make something brilliant.

Check children for head lice
School nurses are the patron saints of gross little kid ailments. Give your local lady the day off and handle the unsightly task of checking for head lice. Lucky for you if you’re checking heads at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary. Everyone else, remember your gloves and hand sanitizer.

Work on your Bill Cosby impression
Three words: Jello pudding pops. Of course, I favor this ‘80s era Bill of my childhood, but if you want to master the curmudgeonly Bill as of late, more power to you.

Design tattoos for basketball players
Prince William, Prince Shmilliam — it’s NBA playoffs season. Have you seen Chris Andersen’s tattoos? This man takes tattooing to another level. His neck looks like a box of crayolas. It reads “free bird.” That’s pretty doggone epic. Get in on the action and design your own awesomely outrageous tattoos. Some design suggestions: a basketball surrounded by flames, praying hands, a machete-weilding school mascot.

Clip your toenails
Face it: your feet hurt not cause your shoes are too small, but because you’ve got talons on your toes. Do yourself a favor and put your toes out of their misery. You can even build in a game seeing how far you can shoot the clippings off the clipper. Fun and good for you, all built in one!

This is for the millions of living, breathing, and thinking people who couldn’t care less about Kate Middle-whatever and Princess Diana’s kid — who are annoyed by the media’s endless barrage of breathlessly fanatical royal wedding coverage, and would rather watch paint dry than read another story speculating on who’s designing the wedding dress.
