HOW TO WASTE HOURS OF YOUR VALUABLE TIME

Today is my 3rd year blogiversary!!
This post seems somehow appropriate:




Soon you should be able to say:


Regular readers of my posts already have an advantage in the science of wasting time with examples 5 days a week!!

Here are some examples of time-wasting brilliance:

A glueless golf ball tower:

A Jenga wall:
  
A cookieless megacookie:

Painted coins:

A surprisingly graceful pylon sculpture:

Seeing how many cell phones will fit in your mouth:

Leaving the peel in one piece:
  
Doing a blank jigsaw puzzle:

Making a peanut butter shelf:

Redecorating your desk with highlighter pens:


Has a teacher ever given you a 20 minute lecture about not wasting time?

In the interest of wasting time,
lots of cartoons for you:




















The most wasted of all days is one without laughter----e.e.cummings (& fishducky)

  5. I especially enjoyed the efficiency expert one. When I was young (and so was Target) I was the fourth person hired to work in the file room. Efficiency experts came in and their solution to the overflowing files was for us to waste days putting rubber bands around a huge room full of files. We tried to tell them that they wouldn't work when you are cramming files back into tight spots, but nobody would listen to us. A week later (lucky none of us were blinded by snapping and broken rubber bands) we spent days taking them all off. Then they let me go as the newest hire, but kept the older lady who drank on her lunch breaks and pill popped. [Do you remember the days when housewives used to go to several doctors to ask for various pills and they handed them over no question? Zeenie had an entire shelf full of pills in her linen closet.] One of us had to secretly follow Zeenie around the file room to double check what she was doing or files were lost forever--but they kept Zeenie and let me go. And by the time they left we were already almost a month behind on filing due to their "efficiency" ideas and we were back to the same old way we were filing. So funny! But I lost my job. Sure, it was a crappy job, but I loved the girls. Even Zeenie. She was a hoot! :)

  6. Happy blogaversary, Happily for me, you have not been wasting my time. Laughing is never a wasted energy.
    However, I am guilty of making a marker pen tower while on salary.

  8. Has it really been three years? it seems I've been laughing with you for far longer.
    That blank jigsaw would drive me bonkers.

    1. My husband always says, "You can borrow anything I have except my wife--her you can have for free." I think I'll turn that around a little!!
