What can I do to cure my boredom while exercising?

I generally prefer to bike or run outside for exercise, but here in Colorado when it's 15 degrees and snowing outside, it's not exactly a good time to burn calories outdoors.
This usually forces me to go inside and use something like an elliptical machine or treadmill.
The problem is that I just get bored out of my mind. I've got an iPod loaded with music, but I just can't seem to get my mind off of how absurdly bored I get.
I realize I'm a bit limited on "activities" with this, but what are some ways I can pass the time? I usually try to workout for 30-45 minutes.
