It sounds like something out of Cosmo: ways to spice up the generic hotel room experience. But a new book's suggestions are more silly than sexy, from carving an Elvis out of soap to setting up a golf course using empty coffee creamers as holes, an olive pit as the ball, and a spoon as your club (that's a course diagram at right). Depending on your sense of humor, the absurd time killers from Hotel Hobbies: 50 Things to Do in a Hotel Room That Won't Get You Arrested--or simply flipping through the book--may prove more fun than what's on cable (thunderbaybooks.com, $10).
