I love good Vines so much. They remind me of how I felt watching Ask a Ninja and Lonelygirl15 in 2006.

Batkid Saves San Francisco

A boy’s wish to be Batman inspired thousands of volunteers to help turn the streets of San Francisco into Gotham City today.

Five-year-old Miles, aka Batkid, has been fighting Leukemia since he was a baby. The Make-a-Wish Foundation helped organize an entire day catered to the caped crusader. Miles, whose cancer is in remission, rode in a Batmobile, rescued a damsel in distress and helped police capture the Riddler and the Penguin. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee even gave Miles a key to the city.

To see more of Miles’s day of crime-fighting adventure, follow @abc7newsbayarea on Instagram or check out the #sfbatkid hashtag

I missed making my list last week, but I’m back on the wagon! Today we are taking time-wasters:

As you can probably tell from my list, I’m not interpreting this prompt as ” things that are such a waste of time”, but rather a list of the things I like to do that don’t have direct monetary value. Since I have both a full time job and a full time business, I could spend every waking minute working and still have more to do. I’ve found that “wasting time” is extremely valuable for my mental health. All work and no play makes Liz a little homicidal, after all!

What are your favorite time wasters? Leave me a comment and let me know!
