Friday Fives

This was a boring set of questions or perhaps I'm just in a stagnant mood. I apologize for the waste of time (it's a theme! You'll see...)

1. What is your biggest waste of time in your home?
The cleaning supplies, the washer/dryer, the dishwasher, the stove. Any time spent cooking and cleaning is time wasted. That is valuable time that could be better spent reading or emailing or blogging or playing with the dogs or sleeping!

2. When at work, what is the activity that you find wastes the most time?
Ok, I'll go with the expected answer here. Yes, the internet is the answer. Reading and responding to my email, creating dancing elf videos, reading those blogs that are listed over there on the left of this page, researching books to suggest at book club, planning trips...you know - all the stuff that keeps me sane when work threatens to push me over the edge.

3. When getting busy with a date or significant other, what ritual could you do without?
I wonder if they meant to ask "what ritual would be considered a waste of time?" I'm guessing they did, otherwise, this question wouldn't fit the theme. Either way, I'm not answering it.

4. What is the biggest waste of time on the Internet?
Perez Hilton and other gossip websites. Why waste time reading about what the celebrities are doing when you could be on facebook or reading blogs seeing what your real friends and ex-boyfriends and the people you used to know from high school are doing? And then you can poke them and give them underwater sea creature gifts and see what 80's Movie they are and give them drinks and cupcakes and see what movies, groups, products and websites they are fans of and then become fans yourself! Or you can be like me and just read everyone's status updates and call it done. Yeah, okay...it's all a waste of time.

5. What do you do at a restaurant to waste time when waiting for your meal?
Fidget. Try to balance the salt shaker on its edge. Build tents with my forks and napkin. Sitting still is very difficult for me.

So it has been 2 years since you have updated your Friday Fives? I am disappointed.
