Default Favorite Time Wasters?

What are your favorite things to do online that are just completely and utterly wasting time?

One of my favorites is Boomshine.

I also like Reflections.

Aside from that, I enjoy checking out the forums at televisionwithoutpity.com.
I used to love literati on yahoo, but these days it's just about impossible to get through a game without getting booted or something else going wrong.

Cool, Thanks! I came up on this one day. Killed a good 45 minutes on it but barely glanced at the name. For the life of me I couldn't remember the name of it when I went looking for it again.

Loved this one : 3D Logic 2

Fantastic Contraption - This one is really neat, you have to engineer contraptions to complete missions.

Someone's (really advanced) approach on one of the courses. Usually the contraptions don't look like something that already exists but he made a horse.

Bejeweled 2 is my favorite game time waster.

I also read a few blogs...http://www.tomatonation.com, http://journal.neilgaiman.com, and http://www.wilwheaton.typepad.com are my faves. I also kill lots of time on http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com. And, of course, nc.com is probably my ultimate time waster!

I play The Waitress on eBaum's World or Word Whomp and Bookworm on Pogo.

I also love Mahjong Solitaire, but I usually have to look for a site that has a free trial.

The StumbleUpon application for Firefox is the. worst. Once you hit the stumble button, expect to be preoccupied for at least an hour. Plus, it makes you find random websites with awful, lethal recipes such as these chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes.

Also, the Pioneer Woman blog/website is pretty fun to get lost in, too. Cute kids, awesome photos, great recipes...

Watching "The Bold & the Beautiful" (or reading updates) online.

The storylines are idiotic and some of the actors are bad... yet I keep clicking over to cbs's website to waste a 1/2 hour of my life (or more, depending on how many episodes I can stomach watching at one time). It's just like a bad wreck, I know I shouldn't look, but sometimes I can't help myself...

Youtube for me, I've watched over 1000 videos on there over the past two years.

fictionpress.com. Many stories are just as good as published novels, but something about being online makes it feel time-wastey.
