I’m in between interviews today. Don’t have time to write a story, but thought I could post here. :-) I just spoke with James Morrison from “24” he plays Jack’s (Keifer Sutherland) boss on the show. Very cool dude. Next up is the exec producer from “Psych” on the USA Network. Because of the holidays I’m having to work ahead.

Okay, I happened upon something fun today. A total time waster, but hilarious. It’s called You can build a snow man your way and they have all kinds of funny props. I know, I need to be working on my projects but a girl needs a break now and then. Besides I played while I was eating lunch, so it doesn’t count.

I know a lot of people play cards and games online. Years ago I was into backgammon and poker on yahoo, but I just can’t afford that kind of time-sucking behavior these days. So what are your big time wasters? Be honest. Oh, I sometimes Google myself to see what new reviews are up and what people are saying on their blogs, but that’s more of a work kind of thing… Right? :-)

So fess up. What do you do online that’s a big time waster, and please don’t share your porn stories. There are some things I just don’t want to know. :-) Remember, every time you post your name goes on the list for FREE BOOKS!

  1. I kill a lot of time doing “research”, though it’s usually only for my own amusement. Rooting out floorplans from the 1910s, ’20s, ’30s, etc. Fashions from the same eras. Or searching for stuff I’d like to have if I were filthy rich. *g*

  2. Television Without Pity. It’s evil. There are all those funny recaps, even for shows I don’t watch, and I can spend hours in discussion on the message boards. It’s funny how the perfect argument or example for a message board discussion will pop into my head the moment I start working on something. And then I have to keep checking back to see if anyone responded.

    Next time I get on a deadline, I think I’m going to start a flamewar just to get myself banned for a while from the message boards. That’s the only way out of this I can see.

  3. time waster

    well today I played nudist trampoline. Now, I swear it is not porn. nancy french had the link on her blog. in her comments about it (besides mentioning her score) she said it illustrates why people should wear clothes.

  4. Hm, I read Live Journal, post comments, and I also read email, as well as shop for books from my favorite authors and update my shopping list. Then when business is done, I tend to PLAY THE SIMS2!!! until 2 am and then it’s like, OMFG! I have to get to bed so I can wake up in the morning for work!

  5. Time Waster

    I belong to Club Pogo and have to play the games
    With the club you can earn badges andyou get a mini person you can turn points in for clothes and stuff. I love it and spend way to much time there

  6. I spend my time on webslueths reading about true crime, lately. It’s interesting to read and discuss the cases that interest me with others who are also interested. It’s morbid, but once I start, I can’t stop.
