For a fun game on my iphone I love 'cut the rope'! It's a cute game and you do have to use your mind a little bit.

Teresa Medeiros can be very entertaining on twitter.
Apps wise, I just discovered textopolis, a free word game that I'm enjoying. And of course there is Angry Birds.

Jimmy Fallon is very funny on Twitter. Authors who are entertaining...Meg Cabot has a good sense of humor. Apps...I love Scrabble. I play with my nieces! Rat On The Run on my iphone.I like Flipboard and the ABC News are great apps on my ipad. Also, a very cute game for older children (and I like it too) is Fairies Fly...so pretty.

Also, if you like Joan River's humor, she is very funny. I've really enjoyed Ray Garton, a horror writer. He doesn't tweet much anymore, but he used to tweet...This Just In, or...Little Known Fact...and then report on something very amusing. I've retweeted many of those tweets of his.
