I was doing my daily perusal of education blogs today and one of them for some reason had the puppy cam that I’ve been hearing so much about.
Do I have to tell you that I spent at least 5 minutes watching it, trance-like, hoping that my coworkers would walk by so that I might share this joy with them? After I realized that the cute little leg twitching thing of one of the sleeping pups was not really going to get more interesting, I looked to the right and saw the stream of comments from whoever the hell is participating in this “chat group.” Below is an excerpt of the scintillating conversations that ensued.

I especially like the one whose sister refuses to walk barefoot in the snow. What a rebel! But livestream sites like this got me thinking about just how many sites exist to distract cubicle-goers like myself from working more than 10 minutes at a time. For all it’s usefulness, is the internet really just a global way to waste time? For me, I’m starting to think … Oh! The puppy just squeaked!
