While I'm bored at work, I try to spend my time entertaining myself on the internet. This can prove to be a challenge, when the computers block most of the websites I frequent. So here is what I usually do to pass the time.

1. Blog
2. Yahoo Groups
3. Play the LA Times daily crossword puzzle and Sudoku game
4. visit various message boards (the ones that aren't blocked, anyways)
5. research fun and exotic pets
6. window shop for fancy (and expensive) camera equipment
7. Shop

And that's pretty much how I spend my days at work while I'm not working. Its not the most productive thing to be doing. So I found a better way to spend my time while goofing around on the internet. Its a website called Free Rice ( Its like a vocabulary quiz. Its multiple choice, and it automatically adjusts itself to your vocabulary level, so its never too easy or too hard. And for each word you get right, 20 grains of rice are donated to people in poverty. Even just a few minutes a day can make a difference. And the best part is, you aren't just helping other people, you are actually helping yourself by building your vocabulary. Its a win-win situation.
