A Click Away from Hours

udontdonothinOver the past few days, I’ve been unfocused. While trying to find a topic to write about, I found myself clicking from one site to another until I realized I was reading about some celebrity story that happened a year ago. And I don’t even follow celebrity gossip!

But I can’t help it when I find fun websites; I can spend hours playing around on them. Typing and uploading pictures to come up with something new. It’s crazy. It’s obsessive. It’s… freaking fun! Even though these sites are a waste of time, they relax me and sometimes provide me with writing ideas.

Like this site, Take me back to, so I could find out what was going on in the world the year I was born. We’ve seen those booklets sold in stores with the magnified years on the cover. Here I can just type in, August 7, 19(still young) and read about it. Born on a Wednesday, the week most people in the U.S. were listening to Hello, I Love You by The Doors, one of the popular books published in the last weeks was A Small Town in Germany by John le Carre. Hmm… could that have been a sign for the future?

Love is in the air in Germany. Maybe I should have used this as my cover for my women’s fiction / chick lit novel, Fogged Up Fairy Tale. This site, Glass Giant, lets you create your own romance novel. See how this helps the creativity bloom.romance_novel

waterfallAnd here at Funny Photo is creativity at its best! Who wouldn’t want to be immersed in a waterfall? The Denise would, that’s who.

Or how about this one for all you lovebirds out there? If you forget to get something for Valentine’s Day, all you have to do is print one of these out from Cryptogram and give it to your sweetheart.

Here’s a nice site for those who aren’t crazy about dressing up for Halloween. Makemeazombie actually makes you look like a zombie. Print it out, tape it to your face, and Voila! Instant costume.

zombieAs much as these sites allow me to enjoy creative time, so many addicting online games keep me busy too.

This Throwpaper game is great when you’re at work and you’re out of paper.

Carve a Pumpkin leaves no mess.

To end this post, I’d like to share this with all the lonely guys out there. Invisible Girlfriend puts an end to searching for that perfect girl. Just go and build yourself the girl of your dreams. Remember, fluids will affect your computer. And ladies, you too can get that perfect Invisible Boyfriend who you can talk to at any time.

Games, Creativity, and Procrastination,

  1. I know that problem only too well. Clicking from website to website looking for inspiration is soul destroying. I should turn the PC off and go for a walk, that’s usually a lot more inspirational, but I rarely do…

  2. It can be good to do something which could be a waste of time every now and again, as long as you are finding and loving the fun in it! It’s nice to hear about some of the things you found 🙂

  3. Oh my you make quite the lovely Zombie 😉 I tend to get bogged down in RSS feed and click through on too many articles. It’s a hard habit to break. My most recent phase has been watching short cartoon-style philosophy videos. Who knows what the next phase will bring…

  4. These are all new to me except for Makemeazombie, of which I have zombified myself. The rest of them are going to remain new to me, too, because I’m one of those types that is VERY easily sucked into a new website and will lose an entire day of productivity. Not today, Internet!
