While this can come from several sources, a 'normal' misfire from a single plug can cause that.
Another possibility is the idle air control may not be functioning as it should.
You didn't mention it but we can assume you have an automatic transmission. Standing with the brakes on and the tranny in drive, does load down the engine somewhat (drag) so nearly anything out of whack can cause the rough idle.

If you look at your valve cover its at the back on the right, it comes up and then its an elbow, it comes over the top of the valve cover then down. the PCV valve is either the elbow or the piece in front of the valve cover after the elbow.

Sounds like you make have a vacumn leak on one of the rubber vacumn lines that attach to the intake manifold. Check all of these lines and look for cracks, pinholes and lines that have colapsed.
