I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:I write on till rolls too, I planned my dissertation on one biggrin

granted this isn't an office based time filler... sundays in an outdoors shop were also pretty boring though, we spent time constructing things out of rollmats, and firing those tag things across the shop....

It's funny though. saturdays are prolly the busiest time of the week when im at work yet its the time when i do most thinking. I think its cos im shut of from my own friends and stuff and just getting on with the job in hand.

Posted:Today has been VERY boring for me today.
i have had about two phone calls to fix things... and the rest of the time Ive been looking up parts for the new server I have to build biggrin
Then I have to tell my boss that he has to spend about 2000 on parts ubblove
And I get to put them all together!
I managed to buy a book today for 4 in total (inc P&P from the US! eek ) today about Windows Small Business Server 2003 edition..

Sorry.. I'll stop talking crap and get to the point.

If you are in the UK, the Channel 4 has an excellent way of spending time at work, watching many of their programmes, totally for free. You have to install the program (its only small) and then it plays it through a windows media player window (not WMP itself).
You can also download programmes that you want to watch, them watch them later on.

Im particularly enjoying "Fonejacker" biggrin
Other cool stuff is "The IT Crowd" ubblove

There's loads of stuff to watch... so dive in. biggrin

Posted:I have the entertaining job of making or breaking people's modeling dreams via phonecall. I get played essentially to play "Hot or Not."

When I run out of numbers, I tidy up the office or else lurk on various boards or feed my CNN addiction. I try to always look busy, y'know. Nine hour work days suck though.
