This is SOOOO much fun!

...on the same theme:

Pick disgusting outfits out for each other to try on; that's a happy half hour or so right there... IN EVERY SHOP!

Do your make-up with the samples in the shop [ I guess some people might feel icky about that tho ]

In fact, some make-up counters will do your make-up for free [awesome before a night out], with an UNWRITTEN rule that you'll buy at least some of the products. Again with the ick, but you can always say you've a birthday coming up and are going to ask your friends and family to buy whatever products they recommend.

Pound shops are excellent places to find cheap canvases for art attacks!

Also, "celeb spotting" where you point out normal people on the street [out of their earshot....or not, whatever!] who look a little like famous people, that can be a giggle. If you're brave, race down the street after them shouting [for example] "Richard Geeeeeere!I love yoooooou!" and watch passers-by do double takes at the rakish silver fox trying to quietly do his shopping.

Putting things into people's baskets/trolleys in the supermarket is fun too. The randomer the better; a single can of cheapo own-brand super-strength lager into the nicely-suited businessman's trolley... into the basket of a slummy mummy buying chicken nuggets and microwave burgers....a butternut squash! She won't even know what it is!!!

My friend and I would go to department and furniture stores and sit on every recliner, couch, and bed - also, if they'd have the racks of carpets hanging up, we would wind our ways through them.

LOl, one time a bunch of my friends and I had a pillow fight. We thought no-one was around, but the guy looked up after we were all done and just laughed.

I had fun pulling down the boxers on mannaquins so they mooned at shoppers.I considered putting panties in the hands of male mannaquins and boxers in the hands of female ones.
Sitting on toilets and getting in baths at homewares/diy stores is fun too.

I'm not at all puerile.

My friends and I take a train into the city, and walk. It's a little bittersweet at the end of the day, what with all our feet bleeding, but so much fun.

Whip-cream or shaving cream fights! Find a park of somebody's backyard, have two cans of ammo, and go nuts!

PILLOW FIGHTS!!! HAVE WE FORGOTTEN PILLOW FIGHTS?!? My friends and I have gotten into some so intense we can't even stand up straight.

Get a LARGE group together, have one, two, or three people dress as Waldo and hide somewhere in the city, then have the remainder of the people split into groups and try to find Waldo. :)

THAT SOUNDS LIKE SO MUCH FUN...
Unfortunately none of the people I know would be into doing that.

I play the 'gangster or not' game with my boyfriend ALL the time, that and the 'is that a guy or a girl' game.

Heh. We play "Your Team". It's kind of a cruel game, but the idea of it is, when you die, you're stranded on a deserted island with whatever people are put on your team. So...emo kid in day-glo hotpants is on your team. You're stuck with them forever, and other players can't be put on other player's teams. I put Moby on my boyfriend's team the other day :lol:
Pretty much everyone I know here plays it.

I've been thinking about camping and waiting for warmer weather all year. I know...Fill your gas tank (I know that's not cheap, but just do it once) and drive aimlessly until you run out of gas. When you're out go out and hold a sign with friends. I don't know...some might not find it fun. But I tend to lean toward spontaneous things so I like to just drive. Or walk with a group of friends! There are always good conversations with that and little adventures. I can't really be spending a lot of money for a while, so I should be taking my own advice, haha.

We play a game similar to that, called "Dibs!" It's probably worse than your game, as we look for the most disgusting and visually displeasing people we can find to call "dibs" on, claiming them as ours. For instance, that dirty 60 year-old hooker walking down the street with saggy skin? DIBS! Too late, she's mine. So pretty much, the worse off someone is the "sexier" they are. The person who calls dibs on the worst looking person wins, and the game starts anew (but only if everyone can agree that nothing will top that).

Yes, the whole point of this topic was things you can do without the help of illegal substances.
