Signs of a Misspent Traffic Manager

I LOVE the new traffic manager. While she's dealing with all the logistics and meetings and politics, I'm actually able to design! It's shocking how much time that leaves in my day now. For the most part, I've been using my new-found time wisely, but I've had a few temptations.

1. NetVibes. I have my blogroll, news feeds and design feeds set up there. The Wiki-how feed can absorb hours if one isn't careful.

2. Freerice. Thanks to swallowflight, I found this site that tests your knowledge. I've only managed level 7 of 10 in vocabulary, but 9 of 10 in art recognition. Chemical symbols? I'm in the 2-4 range.

3. Scrabble via Facebook. Evil addiction. I now have most of the two-letter Scrabble words memorized (AA, SH, QI--who knew?!)

Is there anything else I should(n't) know about?

Glad things are going better at work. I refuse to try Facebook scrabble because I know it would be like crack for me. :)

anything on facebook can be timesuck... I'm afraid of NOT checking enough times because I usually catch up on friends via status updates.

I love Freerice! I sometimes play Boggle online. It's at www.wordtwist.org.
