I can't believe what I'm about to type but . . . I saw something AWESOME on buzzfeed this weekend. It's so awesome that I'm sending you to look at it right now. Here it is: "33 Amazingly Useful Websites You Never Knew Existed." Don't get me wrong: I love knowing that as a New Yorker I should either live in Astoria or the Upper West Side, that I'm "Kevin" from Welcome to Nightvale, and "Willow" from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, that Pharrell's hat and I are soul mates, and that really, I should go live in Paris. I am mostly but not entirely kidding when I say "Hey. That Buzzfeed really gets me." But it's because buzzfeed is usually a source for useless fun, that I was that much more excited to see this EXCELLENT post full of websites I really didn't know existed.
Anyway, next time you're trying to kill ten minutes, click over and take a look. You'll find so many cool things (10 Minute Mail, Camel Camel Camel, Mailbox finder) you won't even feel like you're procrastinating (even though you are). And make sure to keep scrolling down for my long-time favorite: The Rasterbator which, over the years has allowed me, among other things, to create giant Warren Buffet heads as props for a play (click link to hear the song; see photo below) not to mention giant heads of my then-one-year-old which were officially decorations for his birthday party but which had the bonus effect of making him look like a baby-dictator whenever he sat in his highchair (photo missing! I'll try to find it and post it here).
