Weekend Diversions: Are You A Likaholix? Can you KenKen? Make NetDisasters!

I kind of feel like pulling up the covers and hiding today – but I get the impression that my absence would be noticed, so instead I’m going to share with you some of my current favorite distractions – sure to brighten up your weekend or at least provide you with new things to attempt to call “work” when your kid asks what you’re doing – will they be fooled? Or will they beg to “work” with you?


Have you heard of Likaholix? It’s basically a website devoted to stuff you like – search for products, places, blogs & websites – and tell people why you like them – it can connect to Facebook for easy connection to all your other diversions (and friends). The more people you connect to on Likaholix the funner it is. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. (Let me know if that invite link doesn’t work for you – and I’ll see what I can do ::winks::)

Speaking of nothing related to that, can you KenKen? Do you know what a KenKen is? Apparently it’s the new big in math puzzles, similar to Sudoku but like on crack. Jen @ Stuff Jen Says wrote a post about it recently and I’m all sorts of intrigued and petrified by this new craze.


According to Wikipedia, KenKen “is a style of arithmetic and logical puzzle sharing several characteristics with sudoku. The name comes from Japanese and is translated as “the square of wisdom” or “cleverness squared.”

“The objective is to fill the grid in with the digits 1 through 6 such that:

  • Each row contains exactly one of each digit
  • Each column contains exactly one of each digit
  • Each bold-outlined group of cells is a cage containing digits which achieve the specified result using the specified mathematical operation: addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (×), and division (÷). (Unlike in Killer Sudoku, digits may repeat within a group.)”

Think you can KenKen? Try it out online here, here or here.

Okay, last diversion, and I promise this one doesn’t involve nearly as much thinking – no, this diversion focuses more on destruction – mayhem – breaking things – but without the messy clean up. Go to NetDisaster, type in the web address of your favorite website, choose your poison and then watch the magic happen. It’s severely addicting and easy. I spent far too much time than was probably necessary flooding my blog & making protesters picket up and down it (but not at the same time, which could have been awesome… hmmm….)

That’s all for this week – have a great, diverted weekend guys!
