I use Chrome as my browser and whenever I open up a new window, it shows a list of the websites I use most often. Here are my eight, in order:
www.yahoo.com – good for anything, but the best/worst part is the comments section that follows the news reports. I read them whenever I want to laugh, or lose faith in half of humanity. Never knew there were so many 9/11 conspiracy birthers out there, go figure.
www.facebook.com – yeah, I’m on it. Friend me!
www.cnet.com – strangely, this placed third. I visit this site so much because they have this page called “Shopper” that finds great deals from all over the web, where I have found some awesome deals on shoes that give me terrible foot pain. Seriously, I had to go to a podiatrist. Word to the wise: never buy shoes online…4 times in a row.
www.cnn.com – pretty much the same as yahoo.com, but I use it to lose faith in the other half of humanity.
www.gametrailers.com – so this one is a little embarrassing. It’s a video game website. Yes, I like video games a lot. I like to think it’s because I didn’t have a Nintendo or computer growing up, so I’m making up for 18 years of lost time. You might think that I wouldn’t like video games so much because I didn’t grow up with them…but no. The fact is that every guy likes video games – you take a kid raised by wolves and put him in front of an XBOX and he will turn into every other guy out there: a mouth-breathing, dry-eyed insomniac, just like me. It’s written somewhere in our genetic code, sorry ladies.
And what’s even more embarrassing is that I’m actually good. On COD: Black Ops, I have a 1.75 kill/death ratio, and for those of you who know, that’s pretty stand up. I say it’s embarrassing because it is. With all the hours I’ve wasted playing video games, I could have learned French or piano, things that I never would have done even if I didn’t play video games.
www.washingtondc.craigslist.org – I like this site for the same reason I like cnet – I love me a deal. I am far more prone to buying anything that I could have bought for more somewhere else. Not a very good shopping credo, I must admit.
www.mopedarmy.com – I ride a moped around DC, which is like a mix between a bicycle and a scooter. I know it seems kind of stupid to ride a bike that has an engine smaller than the average lawnmower, but I like it. It’s much harder to hurt yourself when you’re only going 25 mph, and I like how girls stare at me when I ride my bike…and guys. And children. Pretty much everyone on the street stares at me when I putter around on my moped, more with consternation than admiration. And to add to their confusion, I like to wear this helmet of awesomeness:
http://www.gmail.com – here’s my addy: pxchin(at)gmail.com. I write it like that so the bots don’t get me. But I actually really enjoy corresponding through email, so feel free to drop me a note through that address.
Alright, let’s hear ’em!! What are the top websites that you visit most? And no lying, don’t say that biblegateway.com is your #1, when it’s really something more embarrassing like yahoo.com.
