Can I put none of the above for all of the above? Most would probably be stuff on the compy and writing and reading, big fat TIE between them all.

Replace second forum with blogger and that is my unproductive time waster in a nut shell.

Basically, it's thinking and dreaming. i seems to me that reading, sleeping and Web-surfing can't be regarded as such, that usually they appear to be extremely productive.

Probably surfing the web is my biggest procrastination vice. I get distracted way too easily. I've lost a lot of days and night just clicking links.
