You'll want to pop over to TattingChic's blog! She's having her Second Blogoversary and is celebrating by giving away a "Learn to Tat" book, a shuttle, and some thread. Doesn't matter if you know how to tat -- isn't there someone you want to teach?
Tatting while listening to audio books is what I call relaxation. I get home from work, get dinner out of the way, then park myself in my favorite chair. I pick up my lap desk covered with shuttles, patterns, strings and beads, stick the earbuds in and say, "Checking out!" Nobody bothers me then -- until it's time to go ride the stationary bike, that is.
