Complete Wastes of Time

So when I’m a blank slate and my mind needs to reset I go play some TankBall or Mahjong or sharpen my skills at Big Jump Challenge.  I tried the Campaign Game but Edwards always seemed to lose. YoudaCamper is a cute distraction, you have to create and manage a small campground.  

I haven’t found an MMORPG I like yet but maybe you will. Other time wasters include CNN, FoxNews, CBS, ABC, NBC, TWC, etc…

What’s your favorite waster?

  1. Where you feed fish and fight monsters to move to the next level…Law and Order re-runs. Time spent here of course is not a waste. I will do anything to avoid housework. I am not a domestic diva.

  2. Icanhascheezburger is way up there.

    And then there’s email — a few friends have way, way too much time on their hands and send some great time-wasting links to goofy stuff. That’s practically a full-time job right there!

    I played this only twice.  All night and well into the morning each time.  After the second time, I realized it was too addictive, and quit cold-turkey.

    You have been warned.

  4. i spend hours some days on pointless phone calls with dr’s offices, insurance companies, etc…so i play lots of games that you can talk while you play, like solitaire.  i especially like crescent solitaire.

    fireworks extravaganza is another…no thought required at all.

    if i have any real chunks of time to ‘waste’, ill fill the tub, soak, and read.  its my favorite place to be in the whole wide world.

  5. It’s boring as hell, yet I’m addicted.

    Go figure.

    I’ve had that game for almost 4 years now, and I still play it at least once a week.  I’ve won the presidency (as my created self, even!) probably over 300 times now, but it still hasn’t gotten old yet.  My greatest feat was, I believe, beating Reagan in 1980 as Jimmy Carter and winning something like 40 states…

    I even make sure to open a beer just before the “results” start coming in…so I can “celebrate”…heh…

    And they have a 2008 version now…with primaries, too!

    Ack!  I need to get that.  Very soon…

    Hmmmm…

    The McSweeney’s website.  Sports blogs, especially any that have anything to do with the Detroit Tigers…

    Looking up random things on wikipedia.  I swear, I start out by wondering what is the easternmost range of mountain lions, and I end up somehow reading about Buck Williams’ years with the New Jersey Nets an hour later…

    I once played ‘Minesweeper’ for like 6 hours straight with my niece…and of course my PS2 gets quite a workout these days, too…no better to way to unwind after work than to continue my dominance of the (virtual) college football world with my Rutgers Scarlet Knights juggernaut…and Madden NFL!  I plan to simulate the Super Bowl sometime in the next couple of days.  Giants win!

    BTW, yes.  I am a huge dork…

    I laugh myself right off the chair and release those wonderful endorphins.

    Rocking in the rocker and staring out the window is another favorite.

    Playing ‘tag’ and ‘hide and seek’ with the kitty. (She always wins.)
