    I have to second Chive.com on this one. Hilarious pictures as well as, well, attractive women. Another time waster is Boston's favorite entertainment blog http://www.wickedimproper.com

    Ha! Am I allowed to say it's my own web site?  Probably not.  Oh well.  Throw a rock, hit a Red Sox site....I'm probably on it.  And deviantart.com

    Aside from the obvious — Facebook, Google+, icanhascheezburger.com, livejournal.com, YouTube, and email, I enjoy the following:

    http://getoutoftherecat.tumblr.com/ (Cats. Where they do not belong)
    http://theoatmeal.com/  (Often very rude and NSFW, but funny)

    These are kind of specialized:

    http://tackytackoftheday.blogspot.com/ (Mainly for horsepeople, but still very funny.)
    http://collaborativepiano.blogspot.com/  (Practical advice for pianists and singers)

    Lastly, I waste a lot of time during the spring, summer, and sometimes fall at http://spc.noaa.gov.  I'll also look at almost anything on http://www.nasa.gov
