My Adventure of Being Bored

When the KL skyline looks ominously bleak, especially on a Monday morning, work is the last thing on one's mind. And the office's uber-efficient air-conditioning does not help in any way either.

But then again, a little drizzle outside won't stop an enterprising chap like me to waste away the day with some productive work. As such I surfed the net for some ideas on how best to do this. Lo' and behold, there is a website or forum to be exact on this, which just proves to you that I'm not the only slacker in the world.

Unfortunately, not all could be utilised though for a number of reasons (i.e. I still need a bloody job at the end of the day). So, from 8.30am this morning, till about 4.53pm, I have accomplished the following;

#1. Make paper airplanes and fly (more like spin and crash) them across the room.

#2. Mess about on Facebook.

#3. Make a jug of coffee and finish it on one sitting. I now blink every 10 minutes.

#4. Switch off the department's lights and make shadow puppets with my headlamp and my hands on the wall. I know know how to make an orang utan. *smug*

#5.To signal the end of a conversation, I clamped my hands over my ears and grimaced.

#6. Walked sideways to the photocopier.

#7. While riding in the elevator during lunch time, I gasped dramatically every time the doors opened.

#8. Didn't use any punctuation in all my conversations.

#9. Called I.T. helpdesk and told them that I can't seem to access any porno web sites.

#10. For an hour, referred to everyone I spoke to as "Dave".

#11. Then in the next hour, after every sentence, I said 'Mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent. As in: "Who left their original documents on the photocopier, Mon?".

#12. As often as possible, skipped rather than walked.

God, I am bored, aren't I?
