Default What do you do during a 90 minute boil?

I was just sitting here watching my 90 minute IPA boil away and I m wondering what people do while they wait.. Other than the obvious DRINK.

Occasionally, I'll play a real guitar too.

Drink a homebrew, weigh out hops, clean, drink another, sanitize, and RDWHAB.

During my boil is when I start getting together my fermenter, auto-siphon, chiller, etc, and then start cleaning and I sanitize when I add my chiller to my pot. I also start weighing my hops and adding them. I almost always do a 60 minute boil, not a 90 minute boil, so I don't have quite as much time to kill. Once I get the hot break, I add the hops and start cleaning/sanitizing the stuff I need at the next step.

Until recently, I used to have to sit close by the brewpot constantly adjusting the flame so as to keep a rolling boil without boiling over. Now I use fermcap drops so now, instead, I can clean up, surf HBT, shag momma, and what not (all the while drinking homebrew of course). The boil takes care of itself.
