I've been known to entertain myself this way.

I also make lists associating nationalities with animals, as in Americans with dogs; horses with the English, French with cats, etc. Highly subjective.

I had a lot of fun yesterday with "equipment"

Do you set rules for yourselves?

I do...mine are:

--no contractions
--no acronyms
--no names like "Lucy" or "Harry"
--present tense and past tense; can only use one or the other ("sit" and "sat")

I do this! I even do it when I do have access to a phone: I usually play Chictionary on the subway home after work to unwind. I find it very calming.
