Anti-productivity tips?

It's the day before a (US) holiday. I came in to work for a friend's going-away lunch, but there's nothing to do here until then. My inboxes are empty. My files are backed up. Both coworkers and clients have long since skipped town. In short, if there's one day I can guiltlessly revel in Not Getting Things Done, this is it.

So, in the spirit of long holiday weekends everywhere, what are your best antiproductivity tips? What sites do y'all run to as soon as you get to a break between appointments (or even when you hit the 2 in your 10+2)? What goofy web animation made you snort coffee all over your keyboard? Have you discovered a way to fold paper airplanes so good they'll make it to the next building?
