    ah yes, it's a good sign in the economy if we are bored at work once again...

    what to do, what to do...

    Is waiting for the poll part of what we do when being bored at work?

    A whole bunch of you need to indicate one of the choices on this poll, and you know exactly who you are. That's all I'm going to say....

    Understand that even now we are standing on the shoulders of giants who came before us.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    The best thing about RT working in my office building (another department) is that I can send her to Starbucks!

    When at work and feelin bored
    I make myself a cardboard sword
    Then I sit back in my chair
    And maybe I eat a pear
    When I need to pass the time
    I step up and bust a rhyme
    Children in the back seat can cause accidents - and vice versa.

    I don't really get bored at work; I can adjust my schedule so that I'm always at least a little busy.
