Things to do at work when you're BORED

So I work in an office in reston, alone 90% of the day, just sitting at a desk with internet access, bored out of my mind. Any web sites? Or anything to do would be a great help.

I know this guy who goes to his job everyday, and actually DOES WORK, including the duties entailed in his job description.

I've been told he is a major disruption to office life...

If you have IT guys that check up on what sites you go to you might not want to go here because it might be considered Not Safe For Work, but you make that decision.

Well I used to wok really hard all day at my job teaching middle school. However I was out in a trailer my final year way far away from the building. I NEVER did this when kids were in the room but sometimes I used to play this game on Yahoo games called Luxor. I paid the $19.99 and downloaded it on my desk top. Instead of getting addicted to Librium to relax, I would play Luxor. I still love this game but I only play it when it's late and there's nothing else to do. Sometimes I used to Google my old boyfriends from high school. That got too depressing. One was a high school art teacher in New Jersey. He was fat and ugly. Too bad. He was a hottie all those years ago.

Who was that guy who was programming in his spare time at work and then farmed it out to all these foreign workers? Oh, yeah...

As happy as an idle programmer with free internet access.

At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

Insist that your email address begins with 'xena-warrior-princess' or 'elvis-the-king'.

Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "IN."

Develop an unnatural fear of staplers.

Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

In the memo field of all your checks, write "FOR SEXUAL FAVORS".

Finish all your sentences with, "In accordance with the prophecy."

dont use any punctuation

As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

Ask people what sex they are. Laugh hysterically after they answer.

Specify that your drive-through order is "to go".

Put mosquito netting around your cubicle at work. Play a tape of jungle sounds all day.

Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.

Have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Hard.

Pay off your MasterCard with your Visa.

Pop some popcorn without putting on the lid.

When someone says, "Have a nice day," tell them you have other plans.

Make a list of things to do that you have already done.

Write checks with Roman numerals.

Write "Out to lunch" on your forehead.

Leaf through a National Geographic and draw clothes on everybody.

Start a nasty rumor and see if you recognize it when it comes back to you.

Read the dictionary backwards and look for hidden messages.

Stare at people through the points of a fork and pretend they're in jail.

Make up a language and stop someone to ask for directions.

Write a short story using alphabet soup.

Kill roaches with a monkey wrench while playing Wagnerian arias.

Start conversations with the words, "Did you ever wonder why..."

Burn all your waste paper while eyeing your officemate suspiciously.

Buy a complete set of Transformers. Play with them loudly. If people comment, tell them with a straight face, "There's more to them than meets the eye."
