Writer's Block: Blergh!

MacGyver, hero of the tv show with the same name, is known for his resourceful use of ordinary household items to get out of an emergency situation. What's the most ingenious solution you've ever come up with in a pinch?
I once broke into my own house through careful application of my own coat. I was rather proud of my accomplishment and likened my clever entrance into the house to the Crystal Maze. I liked the Crystal Maze. It was good when Richard O'Brian did it but not when that other guy did it. I mean Ocean Zone? Ocean isn't a zone you buffoon! There was a Crystal Maze at Blackpool and I used to go in there every time I went, which, if my memories are anything to go by, was alarmingly often. Apparently there's only one left and it's in Wales somewhere. I want to go one day because as previously mentioned I liked the Crystal Maze. Other places I'd like to go include Venice, Hawaii, Japan and Australia. I'd only want to go to Australia so I could follow Ross Noble around going to all of his shows though. I wouldn't care for it much otherwise. There are spiders in australia that are really big, and some of the small ones are so poisonous that they can kill you dead. And kangaroos are good boxers... and emus run into the path of motorbikes. Australia, in summary has lots of dangerous animals, unlike Austria which has no dangerous animals despite sounding a bit like Australia. Is Austria where the movie The Sound of Music was set? If so I hope to never go there. Can you imagine what it would be like to live in that film? Okay it might be okay if you like that kind of thing but eventually you'd get so sick of it you'd do anything to escape. In the world of film the word escape is most commonly associated with The Great Escape, which doesn't end with escape at all, as I tragically discovered last christmas. Last Christmas was a number one for Wham back in the past which is when people used to watch a program about a man who could perform complicated tasks with simple objects, that man was called MacGuyver and in reference to his performance of complicated tasks with simple objects I once did something similiar where I broke into my own house through careful application of my own coat... (etcetera)
