you might wonder how i find content for these (now pretty popular) mid week distractions. well, they are all articles, posts, images, features or music that have distracted me throughout the week. i don’t specifically look for content, but rather bookmark the stuff that actually took up 5, 10 or even 30 minutes of my time at any given moment. they aren’t called distractions for nothing. i can pretty much gauge the productivity of the past week by how long these posts are.

i don’t want to be a bad influence, though. are you supposed to be working right now? go get yer work on first! and then return to Mid Week Distraction No. 14 with a nice cup of tea when you’re done.
