I must check out this TVTrope that everyone is talking about...


My time waster including some that I've stopped awhile ago... Gaia Online, NeoPets, Puzzle Pirates, Wikipedia, YouTube, Google (on random things), Web Comics, Facebook Apps, MySpace...

Do WoW count?

Not if you have things you want to do or work that has to be done or you desire some free time.

Ever.

DragonFable, and Carcassonne. Specifically Carcassonne, I play it every time I have 15 minutes not necessarily taken up by anything else more immediately pressing >_<

I edit photos. It has the magical property of making an entire day vanish. Reading and writing do as well.

I used to do that. In MS Paint. Yeah.

I recently wasted at least a day's worth of hours watching the first two seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Hulu.

The program I used for quite a while wasn't much better. I used Paint to do borders and such. I recently switched to using the GIMP. I'm still trying it out - it's cool, but I'm not sure . . .

I am a YouTube zombie especially of convention footage and music videos....

Other time wasters include facebook, wikipedia, and miscellaneous googling...the googling often of pictures of cute, historical or geeky things (i.e Steamloli is my guilty pleasure >.<).

I also hunt terrorists...(Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six complete collection on PC and Xbox360)

A semi-productive time waster for me is costume sketching, because I often turn the sketches into actual, portfolio-worthy costumes.

I can't believe that no one has posted Cute Overload! That is my all-time favourite time wasting place!

The Kingdom of Loathing is insanely stupid, insanely addicting, and an insane way to procrastinate.

Anything attached to a keyboard and the internet... *mourns* Like now. I have six more pages to write for my portfolio, and I have to study for two finals. T_T Not getting done...

Please spam me with PMs to take my pills tomorrow! PLEASE!
