Today, for me, it's the W.

But mostly, when I'm wasting time at work, I'm usually reading a book or magazine.

Used to be able to goof around alot on the computer, but now the company has people who make sure that no longer happens by watching everyones computer records.

So now we just have the phone to goof off with.

How *don't* I waste time at work?

I'm at work right now.

I've also been known to (in my employment history) blog, work on a screenplay, read a magazine, spend too long in the mens' room, eBay, shave, go out in the parking lot to play with the dog, pretend I smoke, pretend I was doing something for the boss's boss and go to a topless joint instead, watch TV, bother the girl who was working the bakery counter, draw up schematics for how to position the security cameras in such a way that I can steal cigarettes, paint my fingernails black, e-fed, look for dates, try to get the butterface receptionist to go out with me and work on my impression of the Ned Flanders-looking boss I once had.



Even if it means taking a chubby, I will suck it up.

- Go to the men's room and simply sit on the john for a good 20 minutes, then passing it off as "bad dinner".

- I'm in a warehouse, so I just walk around with a decided pace to a pre-determined destination. Once there, I look around as if searching for someone or something, then walk to another destination, with said decided pace. Repeat until bored.

  • Goofing off on the internet.
  • Reading books, magazines, or e-mail newsletters and calling it "professional development."
  • Playing Yahtzee on my Palm Pilot.
  • Pooping on company time.
  • Extended extended coffee breaks.

Moderate here, as well as on the Mothership, but mostly LJ. Most of the other stuff I do to dick around is somewhat work-related.

I worked at an ice-cream stand over the summer (I'm in school now), so there wasn't any computer-related goofing off I could do. I'd usually do a crossword or word search out of some books we have under the counter for occasions such as rainy days. If I worked Sunday afternoons, I'd bring the newspaper to read.

For the most part, peruse/post on The W, check the news sites (legitimate news, not the wrestling newz) and check my e-mail. I don't get a TON of free time, but enough for me not to go nuts.

When I want to waste time at work, I just try to get extra meticulous with the paper work. Most people are sloppy (as am I) but when I'm tired of working, I'll spend extra time making sure things are good.

Besides checking out this place, I'm working on two "I'm a huge sports-dork" projects right now. One is collecting data to make my annual "NCAA Football National Championship Tournament" brackets that I'll play out (but not finish, probably) on my PS2. The second is a rescoring of NASCAR's Nextel/Winston Cup races to see how the season championships would play out if they used my (obviously far superior to their) scoring system. That started out to answer the "Would Mark Martin have won a title?"-question (no), turned into "How many titles would Earnhardt have won?" (five, not seven), and now has turned into "How many would Richard Petty have won?"

The fact that I post here every day pretty much sums it up...

I just like to surf the web and check out what's going on everywhere else in the world...

At work I have a lot of time when programs are loading, or the Windows update is at work, so I read anything that can kill some time.

The W is obviously one of them, but I also like to read the Boston sports pages online, ESPN.Com and the Sportsguy, as well as Anime News Network, among others.

I used to kill time by chatting on Yahoo Messenger, until some spyware got into the company database and a nice sexually suggestive ad popped up on someone's screen. Oops. And can't use Web Messenger, 'cause they monitor our website surfing and any chatting is strongly prohibited.

Now: Microsoft Hearts, paper ball fights and the occasional 2am rendezvous with the vivacious future Mrs. Twister in the parking garage next door.
