Every now and then, we all have to waste a little time(side note: the term “wasting time” makes me think of this). Maybe you need to unwind after a busy day. Maybe you need to unstick your brain. Or maybe you’re, you know, just plain procrastinating. Whatever the reason, wasted time can be the best time.
And, of course….
If you enjoy the time you wasted and it leaves you feeling refreshed and all hopped up on creative juice, is it really a waste of time?
My current favorite ways to waste time:
- Watching Phineas & Ferb with my kiddos. Yeah, it’s a kids’ show. So what. The storylines are actually kinda good.
- Surfing YouTube. This one I try to keep for when I have a lot of time to waste because one video leads to another which leads to another which leads to another…I have very little will power when it comes to related videos. Sigh.
- Playing fetch with the dogs. Okay, only half-alien-chihuahua actually fetches. The husky puppy just steals the ball from his little big sister and runs off with it. Still, it’s endlessly amusing to watch them battle over the coveted red squeaky ball.
- And, okay, yeah. I Can Has Cheezburger is still one of my very favorite wastes of time.
