Stumbling Around

I am one of millions of people who signed up for StumbleUpon , a toolbar that is added to your Firefox or Explorer toolbar so that you can "Channel surf the internet ... to find great websites, videos, photos and more based on your interests. "

A friend turned me on to StumbleUpon (Thanks Tim!) and I have been addicted to it ever since (Not so much thanks Tim! lol!)

I am not kidding when I say addicted. I spend a great portion of my internet time (which is no small amount, but I won't divulge the hours, since that would qualify me for ridicule) on StumbleUpon, which has become more than a toy for me, but a true tool which helps me find what I am looking for more efficiently, among other things.

Today, however, I have been simply playing around.

I Stumbled on a site called The Scribbler, another wonderful contribution from The title is very self descriptive. You get a small white space in which you can draw a simple or complicated image, and then you click a button that says "Start Scribbler". Then it scribbles your image into a fun piece of art. There are some basic setting changes you can make to The Scribbler, such as color, line width and opacity. But basically it is a matter of drawing an image that The Scribbler can convert to a... well, scribble.

Here's my scribbles for the day:

You should drop on over to The Scribbler and try doing one of your own :) If you do, send me links, I'd love to see what you've come up with!
