Bored but lacking the puff to do much

I've caught one of the many viruses that are now doing the rounds, and (surprise, surprise) it's messing with my asthma. I'm feeling breathless with pretty much any activity, so I'm ignoring all the housework and camping out infront of the TV. I'm trying not to let it get me down, but I'm feeling pretty rough and also bored and restless. What do you guys do to pass the time/try and take your mind of it when you're feeling rough?
