We recently bought a cheap printer/scanner/copier. It printed and copied but wouldn't scan. After many emails back and forth to the support people, they suggested I ring. This happened today - after one and a half hours of trying various things, it now scans but won't print.
They are going to ring me back later.
While I was on hold a couple of times (and my helper had to wait a lot too while I tried to find various cords, outlets, etc), I doodled - purposefully. I tried some of the patterns I had been trying at the drawing class on Sunday.
The scanning that I tried was of the drawing I did last night.
Kate had told us that you could do it watching tv - not me, I had no idea what was happening in the show. It definitely is NOT something I can do while watching tv - at least not a drawing that I am working on. The doodling is possibly something that I could do with less concentration but even that takes a bit of thought. And it needs careful looking which then stops me getting all the body language, significant looks, etc on the show. So tv is for watching, drawing and doodling is for other times.
I used to be able to knit and watch tv but I think that was because you can knit without having to look at it all the time.
