It's Labor Day! Procrastinate and Be Lazy! (Fun and Games to Waste Your Time)

It’s that time of year again. Quick! Sneak in all that summer fun before serious sweater weather hits.

I would love to write something brilliant about the worker, but I am feeling monumentally lazy. It is noon, and I am still in my pjs. I don’t have a blessed thing to do today. I feel great. And so, on this Labor Day Weekend, I would like to honor leisure time, specifically stolen leisure time. Here’s to Procrastination and Laziness!

Hip! Hip! Hooray!

Hip! Hip! Hooray!

To celebrate these two time-dishonored traditions in American work life, I thought that I would share some of my favorite ways to watch my precious minutes and hours on this Earth (especially those ones when I’m supposed to be being productive) get sucked into a black hole. So rip up those covers to the TPS reports and start wasting time! (Add your own favorites in the comments section.)

Lead Bush by the Nose
Esso leads W. by the nose. Now you can too.

This is the best bubble wrap game. Make sure you ask for a fresh sheet. Mooooore!

Sugar Crash
This game is sick.

Time suckage for the crafty.

Ski Free
This was my favorite game on my first computer. You will have to download it to play (and there are a few tricks on the main web site). Ski Free is inane, senseless fun. The Abominable Snowman makes me laugh every time. Apparently, I am not alone. You can waste more time reading the collection of Ski Free fan fiction.

Office Space in 30 Seconds by Bunnies
Watch bunnies perform your favorite movie in thrity seconds! Perfect for when the boss goes to the loo.

Guardian Quizzes
Time suckage for the brainy. Alas, the Guardian doesn't have these nearly as often as they should, but there's enough here to waste some precious time.

I'm sure if I really put my mind to it, I could come up with more. But I'm not putting my mind to anything at all today. I'm being lazy. Have fun, and add one of your own!
