Internet interactivity for long-distance relationship; games for non-gamer girlfriend.

This is a relatively common question (and I've read the threads), but I wanted to add enough of a twist that I made a new one. I'm a month and a half in to a 4 month separation with my girlfriend. We've started at this point to email a tad less, and to run out of things to say over skype. We're still solid on all counts, just maybe a bit bored sending and receiving "I miss you" messages throughout the day.
So! Interactive entertainment in the year 2011! I'm trying to think of fun ways she and I could do stuff together online, sometime like a co-op game. Scrabble has been and is fun, but something a bit more active/simultaneous would be good. What fun web 3.0 things can you think of? Online whiteboards, simple cooperative games, point-and-click adventures? She isn't a gamer at all and I only game somewhat. Therefore, simple "slowly build toward the goal without much dexterity challenge" would be good.
I dunno, anything really. Just ways of interacting that would give us something to chat and laugh about. Lightweight is preferable, browser based is good and something with a light desktop client is better. I run Ubuntu or Windows on a netbook that can't handle much - she has Windows.
