Web app my life

What are some web apps I can use to track and record various aspects of my life?

I'm looking for nifty/simple/fun tools to help organize and track my life. I'm talking things like Fuelly, WattzOn, Mint, etc. I'm definitely drawn to the eco/financial kind of tools, but I'm open to others.

I enjoy Daytum. It's in beta but they've been pretty decent about handing out invitess to people who register on a fairly regular basis. Widgetbox lets you make widgets out of data from elsewhere.

Kevin Kelly's Quantified Self blog is a wonderful resource for this sort of thing, although it's not restricted to web based tools.

Last.fm - music you've listened to.

Goodreads - books you've read.

Sparkpeople - food you've eaten, exercise you've completed.

Seconding zeaLOG. I track commute time, weight, exercise, how many plastic bags I use, just about everything there.

There is Dandelife which is sort of a timeline for all sorts of items.

I don't use it, but a friend says Bedposted is good for tracking sexy time...

Another vote for zeaLOG.com that I use to track everything (including sexy time - but that one's private. Sorry :) ).

Remember the Milk for task tracking. Freshbooks time tracker. Evernote for recording just about everything.

Seconding Daytum.

My wife and I decided we'd put out a personal annual report this year like this one. We're using a combination of Daytum and PBWiki. The downside with Daytum is that it currently only lets you keep track of five things.

Ah, AskMe serendipity. I've been using mycrocosm to great effect for a few weeks, but considering these recommendations, I might switch to zeaLOG.

Harvest for work time tracking. Wesabe for tracking finances. BillMonk for reconciling bills (good for tracking shared purchases). All Consuming for movies, books and full music albums (not just individual tracks), as well as food (sometimes).

The more I see all these various sites for tracking specific niche stuff, the more I have to reiterate zeaLOG, since you do everything in one place.
