Note from Rachelskirts: This is the second in a series of guest blog posts brought to you by Michael. Enjoy!

"Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks."

What better way to waste your time when you should be sleeping than to surf the web? Seriously. I challenge you. Come up with a better way and I will.. um.. i don't know.. salute you. Yeah.

One problem some people have is knowing what the heck to do on the internet anyway. Yeah, we all know you can dink around on Myspace, or Facebook, or your drug of choice. But what about all those little tiny things that there are to do? First off let me introduce you to the joy that is RSS.

If you don't know what an RSS feed is, it is a way to subscribe to website and be automatically updated when there is something new. My RSS reader of choice is Google Reader. Basically what you do is get the link to the RSS feed and add it to your reader and Shabam! You're subscribed! Try it out here.

Now that you know how to keep track of all your stuff, you'll need some stuff to keep track of.

Probably the funniest site on the planet (Maybe. At the moment. To me. I think. ) is I Can Has That is really all I have to say about that.

Another great blog is Stuff Christians It's all about the crazy things we Christians do. Some of it is funny, some of it is serious, and some of it just makes you think. The goal of the site is to give people a better picture of who we are, and where we mess up. If you aren't a Christian (and even if you are), I would greatly encourage you to visit that site.

And now I am going to shamelessly plug my own sister's site because, well, she's my sis! And I love her! Plus she is really cool. Check her out at Oh My She also has a little company where she makes a bunch of really cool stuff and sells it at Check it out. Buy stuff. Share some love!

Now what do you do once you've read all the blogs you're subscribed to, and bought all my sister's cool stuff?

Flash Games.

Oh, buddy. If you want a new addiction, you're talking to the right guy. There's something about going around playing these little games that is so addicting! And as soon as your done with one, there are a billion others to tickle your fancy! is probably one of the best places to find new games. One of my favorites is The Impossible Quiz. That thing is like the devil! Let me know if you actually succeed at beating it, because I'm pretty sure it really is impossible. And of course, as if one Satan incarnate wasn't enough, there's a sequel. Dear Lord, do these people not know when to stop?

There are plenty of other great ways to entertain yourself online; you just need to be creative! And night is the best time to do it! There's something about the night time that seems to enhance creativity..

"Most glorious night!
Thou wert not sent for slumber!"
-Lord Byron, Childe Harold
