For those who are not familiar with this term, a time suck is:
Something you do for fun where you lose track of time, when you should be doing other things. These other things are sometimes important to your family’s survival. Making dinner might be one example. You are in a time suck when you’re oblivious to the sound of your children’s voices as they fight over whose turn it is on the X-Box. This can be a good thing until somebody throws the remote and you’ve missed the whole argument and can’t tell who’s telling the truth. A time suck can be very powerful and difficult to escape from, even when flying remotes are involved. Examples from my time suck list are Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
I have a new addition to my list called COLOURlovers. This is an online creative community where people from around the world create and share colors, palettes and patterns. My virtual art studio/page over at COLOURlovers is Snow Daisy Studio, named after my real life art business. I find myself fully absorbed in creating new patterns and even dreaming about color palletes in my sleep.
I was busy creating this pattern and color scheme when someone reminded me that they would like to eat dinner in this millennium.
I scalded soup yesterday at lunchtime while creating this pattern.
I forgot last call for the bus this morning because I was busy putting this together.
What’s your time suck?
