Killing 5 minutes

What's your favorite mindless way to kill a few minutes? I currently use klondike or minesweeper, anything more mentally engaging distracts me too much from the task at hand. That pretty much eliminates reading anything at all, and even viewing or listening to anything with more depth than a cute kitten video.

Definitely Mindsweeper; if I know I need to kill a little more then a few minutes, I play Freecell.

Re: Killing 5 minutes

FreeCell seems to be my time killer while on the net or phone. I have this little unwritten rule of staying undefeated, which makes it a bit more interesting. Over time I have 1070 games played without a loss. Obviously this is nothing to be proud of, it's just a way of looking back and documenting these 5 to 10 minute intervals. No doubt, time would have been better spent writing a book on the mating habits of the Brown Marmorated stink bug . . . . or maybe not.

Killing time? What is that? Is that something you get to do when you dont have a busy 2 year old and one year old?
