Suggestions on keeping myself entertained while sick?

May sound dumb, but I get restless when I get sick and right now I'm running a temp of 102.5, got a sore throat and a burning/hacking cough with dried up sinus, headache, body aches, ears hurt, blah-blah-blah .... I slept from 4PM yesterday till almost 10 this morning - I feel like crud. But now I'm awake and restless. Don't know what to do with myself. Don't have enough energy to clean (tho I need to), surely don't feel like going anywhere. Watching an old back and white movie, but I'm bored.

Any suggestions on what I can do to entertain myself - maybe some fun games on the internet I can play with minimal effort?

               Give yourself a mani or pedi.

               Soak in a warm fragrant tub.
