Tuesday's Meme: Time's A Wastin'

I've been asked to share with you my favorite ways to waste time on the Internet thus causing you to waste time reading my list. Consider this list fiction since I am all about never wasting time. Is there an "Amen" out there....anyone?

1. Blogging. Enough said.
2. I'm not saying, of course, that YOUR blogs waste my time because they don't.
3. If enough time hasn't been eaten up, there is always Facebook, which I love so much I could marry it.
4. Who doesn't enjoy knowing I was playing Christmas music yesterday or that my long, long lost college friend was picking up candy wrappers in her car?
5. So I guess #4 was wrong because that is surely not wasting time.
6. If I'm desperate enough, I might stop by Twitter. I'm sorry, Lucy, but I just don't feel the Twitter love.
7. Sending endless emails to my children's teachers.
8. Checking the email every five minutes to see if they've responded yet.
9. Searching for dinner ideas by WW point value.
10. Trying to find a cheap exercise bench since Checkered won't drive me to Woody's house to buy her Bowflex.
11. Googling my name.

What do YOU do to waste time on the Internet?

Reading YOUR blog is never a waste of time...it makes me laugh and laughing burns calories. Hence, my dusty weight bench.

I hate that the last update to my operating system automatically embedded a little timer at the top of my address bar that shows how much time I spend online.

In DAYS. Ugh.

Name your poison, I've had it: Facebook, Twitter, Blogity Blogs.

Then, there's the paranoid blog-tracking software to determine hits and/or comments.

I need an intervention.

Economy blogs, CNBC and Drudge -- they are my black holes.

Betty said...

Yeah you forgot games on facebook. FarmVille etc.! :)
I deleted my twitter account. Wasn´t getting it either....

Well, Caution, if it makes you feel any better about Twitter, the cat stood on the keyboard yesterday as I was checking tweets, and I let THAT be my tweet.

I did ask for a secretary, and no one else applied.

I do believe that we may be related, except that I don't email my children's teachers, er, professors, and I haven't been checking WW dinners.

Not that I SHOULDN'T....

I did Google my name once and about fell out of the chair to see 'me' in a red bikini on a bod that was... well, suffice it to say that there is apparently an impersonator out there.
