Feed your head
A friend of mine just introduced me to the website freerice.com and if you are even remotely as geeky as I am, this is your cup of Jamesons. It's like your own little standardized test you can take whenever you want. Here's how it works. They give you a word and then four words to choose from. You have to choose the one that is the synonym. For every one you answer correctly, they will donate 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. As you answer them correctly, the words will get harder. If you answer them incorrectly they will start to get easier. The words you miss will appear again later on. And, make no mistake, these are no little pansy-ass words. The whole idea is to increase your vocabulary.
I donated 1380 grains of rice last night. My geeky little brain is addicted already.
