You're stuffed full of food. You're tired of your presents. You know Westfield is too crowded to do any shopping. What can fill that Boxing Day void? Family? You saw them all yesterday. TV? Apart from Bugsy Malone (11am) and Home Alone (7pm) on Channel 4 - and the obligatory showings of The Wizard of Oz, Singin' in the Rain and a Harry Potter movie - there isn't much to watch. Unless you're prepared to stay up till 2am for that seasonal classic Vertigo on ITV.
So here are six things you can do to make sure Boxing Day isn't boring:
1. Blow up the Kremlin
It'll take your mind off the indigestion at least.
2. Climb a really tall building
A gentle walk through snowy parks are so 2009.
3. Go to Sweden
I hear it's pretty this time of year.
4. Solve a murder
Nothing gives you a smug sense of self-satisfaction like the knowledge that you tracked down a serial killer.
5. Trash a BMW
Because you didn't want that car as a Christmas present anyway.
6. Swedish bum rape
As the saying goes, try everything once except folk dancing and incest. Note that the list does not include Swedish bum rape.
If you're really stuck for Boxing Day ideas (or you've already tried Swedish bum rape), you could always go to the cinema. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo looks pretty good - and Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol sees Tom Cruise jump off a skyscraper. What's not to like?
