I should be making myself breakfast and getting ready for work right now – or finishing the laundry and putting away some dishes. I definitely shouldn’t be lingering at picmonkey.com making new graphics for the blog like I do roughly every 3 days or so. Some people are addicted to heroine. Some people are addicted to whiskey. Me? I’m addicted to making adequate graphics and changing my blog theme. To each their own, right? (sidenote: don’t do heroine)
Here’s some other stuff I did online when I wasn’t doing that super important stuff previously mentioned:
- I played pacman in a google map of my neighborhood. You can, too. In your neighborhood. (via geekologie.com)
- I became weirdly addicted to this not exactly a comic at xkcd.com when tasked with the job of helping them recover user data before Facebook & co. noticed it was missing. This is the problem with the internet, really.
- I learned how to make text masks on picmonkey and then proceeded to make text masks for everything, including our new blog button.
- Later I made a zazzle shop where I turned that button into a coffee mug. Because I can.
- I read about some of the most underrated 90’s movie fashions at hellogiggles.com, which resulted in me searching to see if several of those movies were available on netflix (nope) or free on Amazon Prime (not that either). I don’t think it’s fair to ask someone to pay to rent a movie that came out almost twenty years ago. Also don’t mention again that these movies came out 20 years ago – my ego can’t take that information.
- I learned that Cards Against Humanity made a science pack for just $10 and that the proceeds from science pack sales will fund a FULL-RIDE SCHOLARSHIP for women seeking undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It’s called the Cards Against Humanity Science Ambassador Scholarship. Basically it’s your moral obligation to buy these cards because, science. And, education. And, women’s rights and stuff. (via distractify.com)
- I watched a Short R2-D2 Love Story called Artoo in Love at geekologie.com. Then I watched it again with my husband and kids. It was adorable.
What have you been doing when you should have been doing something else?

Look at you making masks and stuff. I love Pic Monkey and I have no qualms to pay their fairly cheap rate compared to an overwhelming version of Photoshop where you know you won’t use even half of their features much less know how to really do it. All those Photoshop classes and look where it got me?
I agree. I’m a die hard pic monkey advocate.
