Avoid TV Tropes. That shit is like crack. I just wasted an hour following links in that morass of entertainment and snark.
An hour? AN HOUR? How did you manage to stop after just an hour? I just wanted to see what was there about Sherlock the other day, and I’m sure I was in it for 2 or 3.
My will is like iron.
Well, that and I started hitting pages I read the last time I got sucked in and blew five or six hours.

Damn you and your oh-so-tempting links. 🙂 There goes the evening.
Share the pain, Doug, share the pain.
Good find but damn you twice over *unplugs caffeine IV from arm and throws on the expended pile* it’s a real Hotel California in there.
The real time waster if you’re in the middle of writing, is the resulting rewrite time (e.g. damn I must have got that supposedly original idea from an old tv show/film/comic that I saw as a kid -or- [insert as applicable] that’s a trope! THAT is a recognised trope! Bugger, I don’t want to use it now)
