Dee's MoonBow Musings: Fun Time Wasters


Ok, even with everything I have on my plate I tend to be a bit of a procrastinator. And what better way to avoid work and deadlines than to spend hours mindlessly surfing the web. Well to make matters worse my sister-in-law gave me a Page-a-Day desktop calendar, Wacky Websites, for Christmas. The back cover description invites you to "Waste tons of time in 2009 at the kookiest, silliest, strangest, geekiest, and most entertaining sites on the Web. Learn a new dance move every week. Find out how to survive a zombie attack. Plan every detail of your Las Vegas wedding (should you dress your party as "Star Trek" characters? Or go with an Elvis package?)." I thought it would be fun to share a few of these fun time wasters occasionally, so here goes:

Have you ever wondered how your birthday or other important dates translate into different calendar systems; Julian, Hebrew, Muslim or Mayan? Actually quite interesting and you never know when you might need to know this:

Popping balloons is the perfect stress reliever; warning, Bloons can be addictive:

My motto: You can never have too many holidays, especially if you get the day off from work. Check out this site to find out which holiday you should be celebrating today. Darn, I just missed International Polar Bear Day!

Ever feel just a little jealous of the Hollywood elite, well even they can't fight the effects of time. Check out this site to see what your favorite stars will look like in 2034.

I'm a bit of a history geek so I found this site particularly fascinating.

Now go forth and waste time!


Take care,

Oh no, Dee. Not more ways to waste my time. (G) I am horrible at avoiding things like this. I spent way too much time this past Christmas season, on the Elf Snowball Fight site.

You're absolutely wicked, Dee. How did you know I was supposed to be writing? LOL!
