(The Last) Weekend Diversions (For Now)

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! SoContinue reading “(The Last) Weekend Diversions (For Now)”

Weekend Diversions: May 1st

This week I’ve got a new blog, a simulation game, a word game and the means to create your own timelines – essentially the ultimate in random assortments of diversion. I’m guessing a lot of you have heard of Passive Aggressive Notes, but I am new to this little gem so I thought I’d passContinue reading “Weekend Diversions: May 1st”

Weekend Diversions: The Getting Offline Edition

I’m writing this week’s Weekend Diversions on a Tuesday, taking total advantage of the post scheduling feature. Why write so far in advance?

Weekend Diversions: A Comical Edition

So, Friday is here and I have to confess that I found nothing new to divert your attentions with – nothing. To be fair, I’ve kind of had an off week – I didn’t devote very much time to just blog surfing – I haven’t been a good commenting buddy. It’s kind of no wonderContinue reading “Weekend Diversions: A Comical Edition”

Weekend Diversions: math that isn’t math, the telephone game minus the telephone & a fake apology

This weekend’s diversions are all about things that aren’t exactly what the seem, because they are actually better.

Watch as Portia De Rossi apologizes for marrying Ellen… So next I thought we’d have some fun withContinue reading “Weekend Diversions: math that isn’t math, the telephone game minus the telephone & a fake apology”

Weekend Diversions: Are You A Likaholix? Can you KenKen? Make NetDisasters!

Weekend Diversions: Grey’s Gossip, Gay Superheros and Gadget Lust

I’m giving you a little bit of everything today with nothing really related to the next thing. And I tried to make them all alliterative and stuff to SEEM related, but trust me, they’re not. First up, if you know me, you know this has been front and center in my mind lately – Grey’sContinue reading “Weekend Diversions: Grey’s Gossip, Gay Superheros and Gadget Lust”
