Lately I’ve been feeling like this ship has run it’s course. It started out fun and then it started to feel like work and then I thought, “Woah – this is a blog – not a job!” I don’t think it should ever, ever feel like work around here – this is my hobby! So I’m bidding Weekend Diversions farewell for now. That doesn’t mean I’ll never post another funny video or game – I just won’t post all of them at once on a weekly basis – let’s divert our attention any day of the week!

Anyway – for old times’ sake – here are four of the diversions I’d had lined up, the four things I’ve been wasting my time with the most and / or consider worthy of mention:

  • Awesome New Facebook App: Who doesn’t need another way to kill time on Facebook? UNO has been all the rage in my circle lately – I’m not proud to admit that the first couple times I played it I could not figure it out! Word of advice – make sure you are trying to play UNO and not, say, Phase 10 or Rummy. They aren’t the same. At all. Thanks to Jean @ Working Momma 247 for turning me on to this seriously addictive game. My husband and son might not be so thankful.
  • Awesome Ryan Gosling Fan Page NOT Run By Daily Mish Mash: Check out F*ck Yeah! Ryan Gosling if you are into all things Gos’ or just like a good laugh combined with a good swoon. Obviously Jen pointed this one out to me, as a joke actually, but I thought – god forbid some poor Gosling fan out there not get her fix of all that goodness. Consider this my act of community service for the day.
  • Awesome SNL Video Where Justin Timberlake Basically Makes Fun Of Himself And It’s Awesome: My husband showed me this video this morning and it was too good to not share with you all. I’m betting you’ve all already seen it and I’m jumping on a bandwagon like way after the fact, but what else is new? Seriously, check this one out.
  • Awesomely Uplifiting Website That Makes This Economy Seem Less Sucktastic Or At Least Points Out The Silver Lining: Cards of Change is this great little collection of old business cards and notes written by the people who formerly held the job titles printed on them. It really kind of shows how life goes on and gets better and that all endings are really just new beginnings…

And on that note, have a great weekend!

    @ Jen : My first time playing was stressful, too – I am kind of amazed that I went back to try again but I did and now it’s becoming a problem – haha

    Love that you posted the Gos-site. Hope it brings others as much joy as it has brought me over the past couple of months. 🙂

    I love that SNL skit with JT. Hilarious stuff!

    I just played my first game of UNO. It was kind of stressful. I don’t think I will be hooked. I guess I’m just not an online game kind of person.

    lol It popped up on my homepage that you were playing UNO one day & I was like UNO!!?? Then I was hooked for the rest of the day! Thanks, as if I needed more distractions! 😉 That Justin Timberlake video was so funny! I actually haven’t seen that one before! I love your weekend diversions, but totally understand how it could feel like a job…
