Well here I sit, bored bored bored... So I thought I'd Google something with my name. I remember when I Googled "Dawn needs" and it came up "Dawn needs a tripod", and everybody thought that was pretty funny, because my profile photo is of me taking a picture of myself in a mirror. So then I thought, let's try something totally random. I tried a few sets of words, didn't come up with anything. Then I tried "weekend fun" and the first link on there was for the Reno Fun Train. http://www.keyholidays.com/ft.html Funny, first link on the response, and it's something close to home, and not in Timbuktu. So next year between February 11 and March 11, I can take a train from Sacramento, through the Sierra Nevada to Reno and enjoy a great winter weekend getaway. For a small price, of course. Did you ever mess around on Google when you were bored and come up with something totally surprising?

I did a search with my name and there seems to be a lot of information - much more than I expected.. I am in many sites, so it is probably not possible to avoid. There are also some people with the same name out there.. If I get bored, which happens very rarely, I read something interesting or maybe go to myLot..

I sometimes roam around the net when I am bored. I have come across some really weird sites, usually nothing interesting. I like the site that you found. Unfortunately, I am on the east coast, so the Reno Fun Train is out of the question for me...however, it looks fun..I would love to go.

when I get bored i tend to look stuff up on wikipedia. I usually end up getting lost on there for hours. I will be looking up one thing and end up following links to somewhere completely different. I do learn lots of useless facts the only help while watching jeopardy lol.

Maybe. when we watch jeopardy my daughter always asks how the heck I know a lot of the answers. I just told her i read so much and retain the oddest information. I cant find anyone that will play trivial pursuit with me anymore. My ex and I were in the store looking at bored games and I came across trivial pursuit general knowledge. Without even thinking I said oh look here's one we can play you might even get some of the questions. (I told you my filter is broke) He didn't talk to me for over a week.

The last time I was googling this and that and the other thing I was typing in relatives’ names and came across a book my cousin wrote and caught up with him on Facebook after no contact for about twenty years. That was a nice surprise except my mother was not happy because she has fallen out with his mother which resulted in her not speaking to me for two weeks so it was a double bonus!

I have been bored since the past several months ugghh it wasn't good. It brought out the ugly in me. I only have the internet to pass my time away but then off late I did the most daring thing I ever did which i to volunteer my time off. I wish I have not bitten more than I could chew. It really is very tough when you are caught between helping and earning a living.

Where do you volunteer? Yeah, it can take a lot of your time when you're working too, but it can be very rewarding, you can make good friends, etc.
