Can 'anything' be used instead of the 'something' in the last sentence in this dialogue? Harry: Yeah, that’s right. I’m still looking for a new job. Magda: Any luck? Harry: I haven’t found anything yet, but I’ve got a few possibilities. I really liked not working at first, I really enjoyed the free time, but now – well, I need the money, and also – well, I just get bored if I haven’t got SOMETHING to do all the time.

no, anything doesn't work in the last sentence. if it was "I just get bored if I haven’t got anything to do" it would be ok, but having the "all the time" changes it. it has to be "something to do all the time"
