Video Vacation

By Liz Kelly

It's the week before Christmas which may not mean much except that things have slowed to the usual pre-holiday pace. It's nearly impossible to get anything done, so we turn to distractions -- like celebrity blogs -- to make it through the day. It's okay, I won't tell. In fact, as colleagues duck out for ski trips, sudden sick days and long afternoons of last-minute shopping, close your office door/put on your headphones and have yourself a nice little video vacation. I promise the day will go faster.

Viral Video Chart has compiled what it considers to be the top celebrity viral videos of 2006. I'm underwhelmed with their No. 1 choice of Britney Spears seemingly-stoned babbling to a pre-marriage K-Fed. And Justin Timberlake's late-in-the-year entry from "SNL" didn't make the list at all. Still, goodies like Paris Hilton singing happy birthday to Hugh Hefner and Pam Anderson's f-bomb assault on the paparazzi are well worth a look. (Note: Because celebs have potty mouths, these videos are heavy on workplace inappropriate language.)

A much longer time suck is available from's listing of 101 Christmas specials all viewable online. From "It's a Wonderful Life" to "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," all the classics are present. But the true value of this list lies in the links to long-forgotten gems, like "Tom & Jerry's Night Before Christmas" and the "Scooby Doo Christmas Special" and even videos like Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" and Run DMC's "Christmas in Hollis."

Happy watching.
