Hey! Let’s goof off instead of working!

312918380_14cdbddc1d

Ever have one of those days where you’re supposed to be working, but you just can’t do it?

I’m having one of those.  I was going to write something about how all the people who tell you you should have a photo on your LinkedIn profile are attractive.  What about the ugly people?  Won’t anyone think of the uglies?

But I just can’t.  I’m in a hooky-playing mood, the likes of which I haven’t seen since I was a senior in high school and I cut my statistics class for four straight weeks to go to Taco Bell with my friends.  So, instead, here are four non-HR sites I’ve been goofing around on:

  1. This Isn’t Exile.  When you’re a blogger, you get lots of stats on who visits your blog and how they got there.  I don’t spend as much time as I should studying my stats (which, now that I think about it, probably relates to the aforementioned four weeks of Taco Bell instead of class).  So it’s a minor miracle that I got up early this morning, checked my stats, and noticed that someone had found my site through this one.  I thought the name was interesting, so I clicked through…and spent the next hour or so reading (well, reading and making Pop Tarts.  But mostly reading.).  It’s written by this American woman who took a job in Siberia (really, Siberia…like, the one in Russia.  With the snow.  THAT Siberia).  Seriously, you HAVE to see it, if only to see what sort of birthday cake one gets served at work when one works on the other side of the world.  I’m totally hooked.
  2. Cook ’em if you got ’em.  This is a blog by Amy Boland, who’s been a Clue Wagon reader since back when only about 15 people a day actually came here.  She’s also one of the first people I “met” on Twitter.  I knew she liked to cook, because she introduced me to the Octodog, for which my children will always be grateful.  This new blog she’s started shows off her more sophisticated cooking skills.  She can do things with exotic vegetables that will blow your mind.
  3. Sexy Executives.  I hesitate to share this, because some of you might still think I’m a nice person, and this will cure you of that belief.  Because even though it’s wrong, I laugh so hard at this that I can’t read it and drink Diet Coke at the same time (it’s a problem, actually, because I’m pretty much always drinking Diet Coke).  So don’t click this one unless you’re a really bad person, like me.  (Note:  In spite of the name, it’s totally safe for work.  See, they’re not really sexy.  That’s kinda the whole thing.)
