As a kid, I primarily wasted time watching t.v. I probably watched more t.v. than I got hours of sleep at certain points in my life. It's still a tried and true approach to wasting time, but with the advent of the Internet, there are so many more options available. Whether you're at home or at work, there's always something new to experience on the Internet. Here are a few of my faves:
- Fun with Anagrams: Who wouldn't enjoy an hour or so of typing in various combinations of their names to figure out what silly words get spit out. For the record, here are a few of the better ones from my name: lick men only, cony men kill, lock my linen, only clink me...Good times n'est pas?
- Browsing Status Updates on Facebook: Some of the best writing on the Internet can be found on the status update pages of Facebook. What amazes me is that reading these pithy little pieces often provides more insight into my friends than an entire conversation ever could (maybe just means I'm not a good conversationalist though). Here is a selection of witty missives from today: A.V. is a grasshopper not an ant, B.L. is full of good ideas, C.D. is breaking the pattern(s).
- Googling one's self: Admit it. You've done it too. I was thrilled to find out that not only am I a competative body builder and played baseball at Texas A&M, but I am also the Marketing Communications Production Manager at Audi -- athletic and intelligent!
